DW Hotel

The D and W in DW Hotel stand for Duckie and Wess respectively. For a few months in the summer of 2000, Duckie and Wess were hosting a number of house guests in their SOMA apartment, so we started calling it the "DW Hotel" The first time the name appeared in print was July 8, 2000, when I went to go pick up TheLarch at the airport for his second visit to SF. I made up a fake limo-driver's sign that had his name on it, as if it was printed on stationery from the "DW Hotel".
