And that should bring us lots of dough oh-oh-oh….

May 14, 2008

The tills are alive, with the sound of money,
The tourists will pay, for our souvenirs,
Their cash fills our tills, with the sound of mon-ney
Room service, bring us a doz-zen beers!

It turns out the original Sound of Music family home is being turned into a hotel, or you might say a von tourist von Trapp… You can sleep there, you can get married in the family chapel, or eat a few of your favorite things in the dining room.

This could be the start of a movie hotel theme trend. We could see the No Country for Old Men Hotel.  Dine in our Friendo Cafe. Locked out of your guest room? No problem! Bellhop Anton will be up to pop the lock for you!

Or maybe you prefer the There Will be Blood Bed and Breakfast? Enjoy dinner in the Plainview Restaurant. Drink your milkshake before Daniel does! Nah, maybe not.
