DNC

Solomon Jones Offers His Home to Democratic Conventioneers-For A Price

WHEN THE Democratic National Convention brings over $100 million in economic impact to the Philadelphia region in 2016, the Joneses will be ready to cash in. No, we don’t own a hotel, a bar or a den of iniquity, but we do own a house in Philadelphia, and we plan to get our fair share of those millions.

To prove we’re serious, I’m putting out the call right now. Our house will be available for lease during the DNC, and we’ll be offering bargain-basement rates. Instead of the $10,000 per week we’ve heard that others might demand for the use of their homes, we’ll offer more of an a la carte service. And in so doing, we’ll turn the Jones manse into a specialized bed-and-breakfast.

We’ll offer the kind of hospitality that’s rare in the City of Brotherly Love. Instead of hitting you with the normal barrage of body blows to show our Philly affection, we will hit you with a single love tap – right in the pocket.

But don’t worry, fair visitor. Your Jones experience will give you the opportunity to live in a real Philadelphia home, and we’ll offer it at bargain-basement prices.
