This year, Aqua will have holograms. Yes, holograms.
Aqua seemed to have everything you could want out of a Miami-style lounge:
A gym-side pool, a pool-side bar, a bar-side folding futon or two ... the list goes on. But that wasn't enough. It's never enough for Aqua.
If you thought Aqua couldn't get any weirder, new manager Ricardo Espinosa is here to remind us that oh yes, it can.
Espinosa, the chief operating officer for Camden View Inc., which is taking over Aqua, has big plans for the gym-by-day, lounge-by-night spot at the Merritt Athletic Club in Canton.
He wants to add holograms. Holograms! ...
Espinosa told Dining@Large blogger Laura Vozzella that he wants to project holographic images onto Aqua's pool and ceiling -- images of mermaids and other fanciful things. Whoa, man!
"Have mermaids come out of the pool -- something cool, something different, out of the ordinary," he said.
Unfortunately, Vozzella forgot to ask Espinosa the most important question: Who's liable if a sloshed meathead dives into the pool in an attempt to mate with one of the mermaids and accidentally drowns?
WHAT HAPPENS THEN, ESPINOSA?!?!?!
