“We thought it would be boring to be stuck in a hotel room with nothing to do. Since we are open, we wanted to do something to encourage people to come to the max. Therefore we came up with a program that we used before in these situations. It’s to allow them to save some money and to come by and visit us,” Director of Operations Ida Tomlin.

Organizers say if you haven’t taken advantage of this offer, that tomorrow is your last opportunity.
