Take the Pain Out of Missing the BoatJune 16th, 2008 by ed friedrich
Folks at the Alexis Hotel in Seattle say they’re seeing a lot
more walk-on ferry riders, and more people missing the boats. So at
the hotel’s Bookstore Bar, one block up from the ferry terminal,
they’re offering a ‘Miss the Boat’ drink special. Show the
bartender a ferry pass or ticket and get $2 off the first
It sounds a lot like an advertising gimmick, but it works for me.
