Quote of the Weekend

A newly landed yeshiva bochur is  being explained the ins and outs of dating. He is informed that there are no hotel lounges in all of Brooklyn excepting the Brooklyn Marriott. He doesn’t seem very clear on what exactly the Marriott is.

“So, what is it?”

“There’s a lounge where you can get a drink and sit down.”

“And it’s for dating?”

“Not officially, but unofficially that’s one of its biggest uses.”

“And when they built it, they called it the Marry-It on purpose?”

  1. Marriott is a huge international chain. It’s not surprising that a yeshiva bachur never heard of it.

  2. “And when they built it, they called it the Marry-It on purpose?” – LOL, is that the gender neutral name?

  3. Hahaha! This is the kind of story that will identify your blog readers to each other- “I once heard a story of a guy who…” “That’s funny, I heard that story too!”

  4. Who hasn’t heard of the Mariott? They’re everywhere, even Eretz Yirsoel. Funny story though. It’s a good one to tell over one a date; gives you something to laugh about together.

  5. Oh, yes they do so pronounce it that way! I once asked a Marriot employee (in North Carolina) how to pronounce the name of the hotel, and that’s pretty much exactly what she said. (Except she said it more Mare-ee-it. But marry is one of those words that varies regionally — some people say merry, Mary and marry all the same, some all different.) Of course, I’ve also heard it Marry-oht.
