A bit of Downtown...........

It's Friday afternoon - what's better than a couple hours at the outlet mall.    Apparently most of the visitors to the city thought the same thing because it was packed.     I've never had to park on the top floor of the parking garage before!    It did give me an opportunity to take in the views, though.     This first photo highlights a famous Frank Gehry building - the Lou Ruvo Center for Mental Health.   It came in at $80 Million - that breaks down to $1,311 a square foot - 3 to 4 times more than normal! It's been featured in almost every architectural magazine.    The Downtown Las Vegas skyline serves as the backdrop.

To my right is a view of the Las Vegas Strip with the Stratosphere on the left.     It is Friday of Super Bowl week-end - if you look carefully you can see several jet trails circling the airport.

The one story buildings in the forefront are the Outlet Mall.     The white tents are open areas with a break from the desert sun.     Yes, I hit both Coach and Michael Kors.   What's a woman to do when faced with so much temptation............

After dinner at Pizza Rock, we did an early evening stroll down Fremont Street, just in time for the overhead show.      A patriotic tribute to our wonderful country.  

Hope you are ready for the big game tomorrow..................
