Tried to call Royal Sonesta about using the Living Social deal on the nights of December 9th - 11th.
They tried to tell me that weekend is blacked-out because of the Sugar Bowl. But the Sugar Bowl is in January! Called back again and got some mumbled explanation about it being on the 31st, so the weekend of the 9th will be busy.
Obviously, nothing I was told makes sense, so I'm wondering if there is some other big event going on that weekend, and the reservations people are just confused about which event?
