By now loyal readers know that noplasticshowers has packed up the tent and is not flying anywhere in December, but the blog can live on through careful spycraft. That is, by sending proxies into the breach! Go proxy go.

Our first attempt at these shenanigans involves NY city and the Eventi hotel.

The Eventi is really close to Penn Station. That’s a major plus when you train into town on the Acela.

The Eventi somehow magically determines who our spy is (through the twitters) and greets her with fruit, cheese, sparkling water (!!) and a note. Plus two. Houston, our spy has been outed!

Uh oh, the spy welcomed by name with sparkling water.

Room 815 is the king suite variety. But it is uncharacteristically messy.

Noplasticshowers does not mess up its table like this usually.

Does the bathroom art appeal to our agent as much as it does to us? Why, yes, it does.

Bathroom art looks mighty familiar.

Unfortunately the spy thing is not working out. Here is a picture of our noplasticshowers secret agent outing herself! Don’t look now, it’s a mirror selfie.

Finally, and most importantly, the shower is certified non-plastic by our agent.

This shower is not plastic---at all.

Five showerheads and a big thank you for not putting our secret agent in the gulag but rather treating her like a member of the Kimpton family. You guys rock.

Fortunately, our agent somehow avoided the wiles of oh so dapper barman bob at Lantern’s Keep this trip out. That was a close one!

A very quick trip up to NY was once again hijacked by barman bob at Lantern’s Keep. Holy cow, bob is trying to kill me (and all of my friends)!

Because of bob, the amenity left by the crack staff at the Eventi came in particularly handy. Here’s what was left in the morning.

Sparkling water was a necessity.

No plastic anywhere, sparking water to drink, some cheese that seems to work just fine at 3am, super great front staff (a huge improvement from the growing pains days way back when), I must be at a Kimpton!

It was a typical starbucks kind of morning, though morning happened at noon.
