TY WARNER & THE BILTMORE



Another Saturday night and this place ain't got nobody



Ty Warner must be having a joke.

His asthetic sense is much too tasteful to come up with such nonsense for Montecito's centerpiece hang (past tense).


No.  I'd like to think Ty is having his revenge on a sordid circle of suckers that try to dominate his "exclusive" pool club across the road. 

I stopped in for a glass of Phelps pinot noir and got talking to an unsuspecting couple from SF here for the weekend.

They could scarcely believe how or why this joint now looks like a cross between a Turkish bazaar and a Moroccan brothel.


(They fled, drinks in hand, to their room.) 

Sadly, the bartender agreed with us.

And so does everyone else. 

Fortunately, Ty cannot ruin the view of Butterfly Beach.
