We stay at the Nylo in DFW which is an amazing modern hotel made of concrete and brick. The room was described to me by one of my coworkers as Paris Hilton's prison cell if she were to go to jail and it think the description hits the nail on the head.
I got to fly with one of my classmates on this part of the trip. It was a lot of fun to catch up with her.
We arrived on a Saturday and as it turns out the hotel bar has all day happy hour, serving $2 beers, $3 house wine, and $4 well drinks. Those prices fit right in with an airline employees wallet! There were no happy hours food items but we managed to find a few very yummy things to much on as we enjoyed our $3 wine.
