Thomann said the hotel would have all windows and doors draped off for the weekends, with nudity optional on all grounds, except in the clothing-mandatory lobby. Thomann says chief Nicholson sent a letter to a restaurant attached the hotel on Oct. Thomann says he was prepared to require attendees to wear clothes to the event to avoid legal conflict with the city, but that the hotel instead canceled their contract on Nov. In a phone interview, Thomann said Great Lakes Management fired the general manager of the hotel over the incident, despite 18 years of service. NCN wound up canceling the event because it could not find an alternate venue in time, according to its website. Thomann declined over the phone to name the hotel hosting his event. He does not anticipate selling out the party, a first in over four years of business at the Madison venue.
