Just last Sunday my neighbor and I were looking for somewhere to go and every place we wanted to head to was closed all day on Sunday, or closed at 2 p.m. We happened to want to grab a drink at 3. We ended up at the Embassy Suites, which is open every day thankfully!

While we had a good time there, it would be great to have more options.
