We met in the Courtyard Restaurant. I did one quick sketch on my phone while waiting for my order,
and then wandered about the wings of the old school, looking for things to sketch. A movie theater (in the former auditorium?), meeting rooms and hotel suites (in former classrooms), bars, an espresso stand, a gift shop, an outdoor heated pool. There was a courtyard, but you had to go back through the restaurant to get to it. And, for all the windows, the halls were remarkably dark. I finally settled on a view across the courtyard to the windows of the restaurant (in the old cafeteria, maybe).
For the throw-down, we met in one of the bars. Which hadn't opened until noon, which was good, as I could have spent hours sketching the ironwork in it.
