Raise the Roof

Posted By on Thu, Apr 22, 2010 at 3:08 PM

Not all of you might know this, but I love a good business story.

Which is why, when I found myself up on the rooftop of the Peabody the other night and heard from public relations director Kelly Earnest that they had considered canceling the 2009 season, I had to know more.

The result is Back on Top, about the Peabody's "disappointing" 2008 season and what the hotel did to turn the event back around.

And believe me, it is back around. (There's a Rooftop Party tonight, btw. If you're not attending Style Sessions' Swap & Shop event at the Hunt-Phelan or you are a guy, you should consider checking it out.)

Here is the event back in 1981:


And here's what it looked like last week:
