New Jack City: Elephant Nuptials Sign of the Times @ O.P. City Council Meeting

elephant-rideNoted an item of interest on this yesterday’s City of Overland Park mayor and council agenda at City Hall…

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.

 

Nicole Richie's wedding

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.

Then again…

Can’t wait to find out how that elephant at the Marriott fares……

    well, it’ll be a temporary “fixture” and it’s already kind of a brown/grey color, so it might fly. god forbid if it was pink.

    1st amendment. and under the present SCOTUS OP would be overruled on the White Castle issue, the corporate person has declared itself WHITE and that overrules local aesthetic codes.

    I guess nobody wanted to talk about the elephant in the room.
