According to the Miami Herald a wealthy socialite was attacked and beaten by a gang of hookers in an upscale South Beach hotel, a hotel whose website claims "escape to where iconic design and contemporary luxury set the stage for exclusive and extraordinary experiences." And offers a "retreat to surprising sensory environments where amplified entertainment, vibrant lounges, modern guestrooms and innovative cocktails and cuisine create more than just a hotel experience but a lifetime luxury destination."
Of course, the Herald goes on to report that the socialite, who was allegedly mistaken by the prostitutes as one of the practitioners of their own profession, was pummeled and thrown face first against a stone wall as hotel employees watched.
The husband, a few feet ahead of his wife, was forced to come to her rescue using the crutches he needs to walk. Thank goodness he had the foresight to be injured.
Later in the article we learn that the '"prostitute friendly' hotel put the call girls in a taxi to help them escape before the police arrived."
A hotel spokesperson declined to comment on whether "prostitute friendly" would qualify as "amplified entertainment" or part of the "surprising sensory environment." And, at last check Trip Adviser was undecided about adding a new category to it's popular hotel rating system.

Surprising Sensory Environments, by the hour.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
