My Love, My City

Since Vegas is still young, we lack a lot of culture, artsy fartsy folks, and substance in this city. I'm so glad to see that downtown is getting a facelift; it's obvious that it's in dire need of some attention. With Zappos moving its headquarters that way, Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos), is really making things happen. Hsieh is the leader of the DowntownProject, which is a huge revitalization program to promote a work-live-play community to rebuild downtown and give Las Vegas locals a real sense of homage. This urban development is genius, considering the entire team of Zappos will be located downtown. They need somewhere to hang out after work ya know...

With its first ever "Life Is Beautiful" festival, Las Vegans & tourists alike will be able to bask in the ambiance of this city with a 2 day event dedicated to music, food, art, and life. The festival will be October 26th & 27th with artists such as Kings of Leon and The Killers performing whilst top chefs from the city's world renowned restaurants showcase their skills for you! I'm really looking forward to all these new things and excited to see this city grow!  

What's up with the dog? Beats me, I borrowed her for a few photos ^_^. Cute isn't she?

  1. nice photos! I'm really loving the black on black, and monochrome in general lately.
    That festival sounds pretty cool. I've been thinking about going to Vegas, mainly to see the Grand Canyon, since I've lived on the West Coast nearly all my life and have never seen that wonder of the world. But I've already been to Vegas once this year...lol, oh well.
