'60s STYLE ALL AROUND: Have you been to The Pearl Hotel in San Diego? It isn't a hugely huge property, but pretty much every square foot has been given considerable thought. The rock wall in the entrance, the votives everywhere, and a dozen other period touches that charm. Now the mod'd-out mid-century-ish hotel is holding a contest that has two parts. Submit a great photo of something at the Pearl, and, if you win, it'll become the February Facebook profile picture for the property, *and* you'll nab a happy hour dealie for ten.
WE'D GO WITH THE LAMP: Okay, so it is a much-photographed hanging lamp, not far from the pool, but it is so globular and throws such crisp shadows on the stairwell it hangs in. But there are other things to snap. Get details on the contest. Also, other places should change out their profile pictures more often, with fan contests involved. Why not? Keep it fresh.
