  1. 7 years ago I had an eerie experience ag the French Market Inn where I felt like a presence was filling me with a sense of dread. Happened during a hedonistic stay there with my girlfriend at the time. I haven’t told anyone about it until now. It was the most oppressive feeling I’ve ever had and lasted most of the night.
