Under “Planning Commission-Regular Agenda” was the following:
“Special event permit No. 2014-374, 10800 Metcalf.
A special event permit is requested to allow an elephant for wedding festivities at the Overland Park Marriott Hotel on September 6, 2014.
Application made by Barbara Byrd.
This item is being continued to the August 18, 2014 city council meeting.”
Sure would like to meet that wedding planner.
It’ll be for consideration by the planning commission which tried to prevent White Castle from erecting its all white building years ago on Metcalf. And actually succeeded in stopping Red Roof Inn from putting a red roof on top of its hotel building. (The company had to opt for brown instead.)
Apparently, elephants at weddings is no big deal in some cultures.
Can’t wait to find out how that elephant at the Marriott fares……
