We were invited to the mansion for a product launch party. The beverage that was being promoted was getting released in the United States for the first time. We had a great time walking the grounds, visiting the grotto where I proceeded to hit my head and almost got knocked out. We also toured the game room and visited the “zoo” they have on site with a white parrot who has a classy British accent.
Suffice it to say, Norman was getting more attention than the women who had painted costumes on. I was mostly impressed by the full ornate bars that were completely carved in ice.
We didn’t meet Mr. Hefner, but we saw him working at his desk, in his robe, up on the second floor.
