Finally got to the hotel restaraunt when it was serving. Got a plate of buffet food and the fire alarm went off. They cleared the hotel and made everyone go across the street. People in pajamas. People going down 53 flights of stairs in pajamas. Skaters grabbing skates and costumes and forgetting credentials. Coaches looking for kids. Kids looking for coaches.It was just the fiasco you would imagine. They kept the place cleared for like 45 minutes or more. Moved some folks into neighboring hotels to keep them warm. I caught a bus to the Arena and ate there. I promise I will never try to tempt the fates by ordering food at the hotel again.
