TOUCH OF CLASS: When the legendary Leonard Cohen checked into the Hotel De Anza on Tuesday afternoon, in advance of his Wednesday night show at HP Pavilion, his main priority was finding a place where he and his group could watch the election results. General Manger Alison McKennon pointed them to the Hedley Club Lounge, which showed TV coverage of the election all night. Cohen returned to the Hedley Club on Thursday before departing to Seattle and chatted with daytime bartender Harold Martin, who is a bassist himself. Martin asked the 78-year-old singer and songwriter how Wednesday’s show went, Cohen responded, “No one asked for their money back.”
