That's amazing! I assume you mean he said "just outside of Jefferson City"?
Scott and his wife own the B&B here in Bonnots Mill. I have tried to engage him on the topic of gaming, but he didn't seem real interested in getting anything going. I'm a board guy and he's a minis guy - maybe he assumed that I wouldn't be interested. I've gamed minis a few times at a friend's house, and it's fun but I wouldn't want to start buying stuff.
The Westin in Columbus is the nicest hotel in Columbus in my opinion. I'm certain it has a history; I just don't know what it is. It is one of the few hotels near the convention center where Origins is held that does NOT sell out. I think b.c it is "too nice" (?)
The Westin also does not hold a block of rooms for Origins guests b.c I think they also don't want to "attract THAT TYPE of guest", if you follow my drift.
We're very proud of him. He was kind of a lost soul and realized college wasn't for him. (Only took him 4 years or so!) It will be 2 years for him in May, and it has been one of the best decisions he has ever made.
