Gordon has transformed his own tacky-ass suite from a teenage frat boy’s dream to a really nice room. He’s put in sofas and a decent Jacuzzi, better beds with pressed sheets, and all that fancy stuff. He’s even hired a linen company on a trial basis to deal with the sheets, and Sandra is so happy she cries. Hopefully she can convince Eddie to keep forking over the money once the trial runs out.
Dude on the right seem less than thrilled.
They head to the restaurant, where Gordon has the new menu items set out. He’s banned the plastic containers, and makes Aaron agree to quit fucking around with the room service and take charge. This takes the pressure off the concierge desk, which I’m sure Christos appreciates. Then Gordon presents Brian with a white chef jacket, which doesn’t match the Ferrari theme but is much more appropriate and dignified. Eddie says as long as the staff does its job, he has no problem with them telling him no. It’s on video now, so they have proof he said it if he starts getting mouthy.
That night, guests arrive and everyone is all impressed, both with the décor and the room service. Brian is beside himself with glee, and the diners are happy. Then Brian cries again. I love old hippies.
Gordon packs his cute little valise, which incidentally looks like it should be stuffed with jewels and handcuffed to his wrist. He says goodbye to the staff and hugs everyone. I assume they’re still fine, because we didn’t get an update about any foreclosures, and their website is active. I browsed around on it for a bit, and it looks like Gordon only redid the lobby and his room—the other rooms still appear to be decked out Ferrari-style. Also, only the suites are that expensive; the single rooms run between $200 and $400, which isn’t too out there for the Gaslamp district. The restaurant menu is all fixed up, too, and they’re not the least bit ashamed that Gordon’s hands are all over the place—his name is on that website numerous times. Hopefully Eddie has turned a corner and is listening to his employees. Or hired housekeeping staff, at the very least. I have to give him credit for not being a totally bad guy; we didn’t see him verbally abuse anyone, and they all appear to be getting their paychecks, so it’s not as bad as Juniper Hill.
He’s probably a really nice guy once you get past that slimy layer of new money.
Next week, we get the good nasty stuff! Bugs and blacklights, stained sheets, and all sorts of rot. Whoo! Thanks for stopping by!
