Sunday I was at Flamingo Resort in St Pete for what was Press Released as "The Closing Event of Pride being held at Flamingo Resort". The hotel was packed with people all day Saturday and even more on Sunday. When arriving to Flamingo a Flamingo employee was directing traffic into the Maxi Mall parking lot telling drivers where to Park. Drivers returned to their cars a few hours latter only to find a empty parking lot. I have been told that over 70 cars were towed on Sunday night alone. The staff was very understanding, however, I was not treated half as well by the Manager of Flamingo. In short she tells me they only pay to reserve the first 3 rows of parking in that lot next to McDonald's and Ace Hardware and that it was "Not their problem" people got towed even though they had paid Flamingo employees telling us to park in the very spots we were all towed from". I spoke very calmly to her and asked her if she felt that she should publicly apologize to the gay community about what happened and she said "NO!!!....they would not!!!!! The Towing Co. (who have been very nice and helpful that night) also told us this happens all the time with Flamingo, they said they will not set up any agreement with the lot next door and they (Flamingo) know every event that people will be getting towed away, yet they still have workers telling them to park in that lot. It was $115 to get our car back that same night. I feel so badly for the people who live paycheck to paycheck and could not get their car back,....but as the manager said "It's not Flamingo's problem!! I don't feel the gay community should show Flamingo any support if they are unwilling to fix this problem and apologize to us all. They keep taking our money and could care less what our outcome is at the end of the night. It's very disrespectful. Think about this before going there and giving them a dime!
