    The restaurant thief was lurking around … and grabbed Anne’s bag from the back of her chair. At the time, we didn’t catch it … cops came and we filed a report at the restaurant; their security footage showed a man taking the bag. But when we went back to our hotel room … we were cleaned out. The thieves definitely had taste, they only took the good stuff … It didn’t occur to us at the time about the room key being in Anne’s purse, it couldn’t have been worse luck.
