God Bless Him.
At last Tuesday’s City Council meeting, Dr. Sam “She Just Wouldn’t Shut Up” Morgan claimed that the Great Wolf Lodge will demonstrate the power of the Mexican consumer.
Right. Obviously, Dr. Morgan has limited experience with Mexicans.
Mexican’s aren’t going to go to the Great Wolf Lodge. Most Mexicans can’t afford it. A Great Wolf Lodge is just not hip enough to attract the Mexicans that can afford it.
If you could go to the Great Wolf Lodge in El Paso, Texas, or stay at the El Cid in Mazatlan, which would you choose? Because once you decide to travel, you’ve got lots of options.
Great Wolf Resorts are aimed at middle class Americans who don’t want to shell out for a weekend at Disneyland. As such, they’re a second rate attraction.
Of course, it’s not all Dr. Sam “She Just Wouldn’t Shut Up” Morgan’s fault. City Manager Tommy Gonzalez is obsessed with second rate attractions. TopGolf. iFly. Municipal water parks. None of them make El Paso a tourist destination.
But they probably all look pretty good from Tommy G’s front porch in Abernathy, Texas.
