Recently, Lindsey and I had a kick-arse slumber party during at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego located at the entrance of the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Please let the record show that this hotel was right up our alley and I think it is safe to say the whole property became our GNO Clubhouse. We had so much fun running snooping around the place, playing name that tune, enjoying a cocktail party at Elevation the rooftop suite, chatting it up with the staff, feeling like it was Christmas looking at all of the rock memorabilia and then wrapping it all up with a big red bow by spending breakfast in bed Sunday morning… pure bliss.

The moment I stepped off the elevator I was greeted by the Punk Princess herself, Debbie Harry… O M G. It should be mandatory, or a law that no matter what the decor is, every building in the world have rock n’ roll wall paper. THE END. So I immediately knew I was in for a treat and unless I walked in and there was a cot on the floor – this was the place for me. But if you must know, the beds were like big fluffy white puffs from Heaven and the bathrooms are glorious.

The Mary Jane’s Coffee House menu also reminds us of a higher code to live by:

Don’t do things on video you will regret one day…never drink and drive…never drink and Facebook…always leave big tips…if you can’t afford the tip, don’t go…telephone your mother more often…our sticky buns come out hot…David Cassidy or Davy Jones? …the ATM is your friend…tequila makes you pretty…floss after every meal and think twice before you pierce.

FULL. OF. AWESOME.

This place was a blast. Music from 207 filtered in the air,  Intervention at Float is legendary, room service was exactly what the hangover doctor ordered, the Do Not Disturb signs boast: NOT NOW. MY EGO NEEDS A REST (this is as cool as if Lenny Kravitz & Flea had a love child,) and the staff wore great guitar pick name badges proudly displaying their favorite band. However, where was the love for our Foo Fighters?! What about Queens of The Stone Age?! Nada. However, Tupac & Fugees were represented.  I swear, kids these days.

Speaking of kiddies… yeah…that’s right, I’m a Jet-Set Mom with a Jet-Set Tot. LEAVE THEM HOME!!!! Oh, and people…they have NOBU. Score!

Modchik, you are the best roomie I’ve ever. Thank you for having me spend the night with you. *wink* 

Where is your favorite place to celebrate GNO?
