Bear Bust '07

I know that it is still almost 4 months away, but I am getting excited. I have heard that the place to be is the Parliament House. Yesterday I made reservations at the Parliament House. Reservations are for Wed the 17th through Monday the 22nd. From the pictures on their web site, The Parliament House looks just like the Habana Inn in OKC yet, maybe a bit more upscale.

I have never been to Florida. It is one of the few states that has neither been a destination for vacation nor have I passed through on my way to some other destination. Florida never really held any fascination for me as I grew up. My parents never went and not so much as mentioned going to Florida for any reason. The beaches of Virginia, South Carolina and California were my parents choices. I spent my Adult beach time on the 3rd coast, (The Gulf) and the beaches of Texas. So Florida will be an adventure.

Again I will be traveling there at a vendor (at least to help out as a vendor's assistant). It seems that since I have stopped "doing" shows as BearHide Creations, I am going to more varied events. Now I am not limited to only where I can drive to. I don't think that I would have ever went to IML as BearHide. And Florida would have been out of the question.

From what you are describing, the Habana is exactly the same. I Motor lodge whorehouse. In Oklahoma City the rift-raft gets thown out at 2:00am when the bars in the complex close. What is shut down time in FLorida?

As for vending, it will be t-shirts and leather.

A friend of mine refers to the Habana Inn as "Oklahoma City's only no-star motel." I read somewhere that there is a second motel that's opened up nearby to compete with the Habana.

Yeah, I have not stayed there but I hear it nicer than the wHorebana (as it is called in this part of the country). It is called Hollywood.

I don't think I will be getting much sleep anyway.

If I'm lucky, I will run into you there!

B.Bust is a LOT of work, but rather fun too. Can be quite festive as well!

That is good to know. Like I said, I have never been to Florida before. I am looking forward to it.

Upscale isn't a word I would use to describe the P house lol but its not bad at all. Never have gone the the Habana yet so I can't compare.

I really do love the florida beaches though and again haven't spent much time at the TExas beaches so again can't draw a conclusion but hey but hell its away from the normal rat race so how can it not be exciting!

That is very true about being away. Any time away is exciting.

Upscale?
OHHHHH I hope you aren't disappointed with the Parliament House... I for one will never step foot in that cespool again... it might be famous but for WHAT I dunno... If you like Seedy, dirty smoke infested rooms with black mold growing in the bathroom then maybe this is the place for you...

Last October, my partner and I got off the Bear Voyage cruise and we had booked 1 night at the P-House because we didn't want to get off a ship and then spend another 12 hours traveling to get back home. We got to the P-House and waited for 3 hours with a large group of others until a room was available. I got the key, went to the room, opened the door and was hit by the most horrendous smell... it was the combination of YEARS of accumulated cigarette/cigar smoke, lube, cum, cheap cologne, vomit, piss, shit, you name it! I just stood there holding my breath and I was afraid to put my luggage down anywhere... 15 minutes later I couldn't stand it and checked out. The P-House is a lot of things but UPSCALE or even CLEAN it is not... I would advise you to CANCEL YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW AND GO WITH THE HOST HOTEL OR THE OVERFLOW! You will thank me!!!

Re: Upscale?
Wow, I really sorry to hear about your experience at the Parliament House. I would have to say I would not call that a raving review. Thank you for your observations, I will plan for the worst. And hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised.
Of course I only have my experiences at Oklahoma's version, the Habana Inn and what I have heard, to go by. I have several friends that will be staying there at the same time. So, I guess since I have never been there before, I am being a herd runner. When I made the reservations I had to prepay for the Friday of Bear Bust weekend. If I cancel now I will loose $100.00
