Some of you asked for pictures of me and my mom. Yesterday I took her to lunch at the Hollywood diner. These are diners owned by a local entrepreneur who purchased a million dollar plus collection of movie memorabilia and is buying, placing and decorating these diners to display the treasures. The food is 50s style, gigantic malts, burgers, etc. There's a soda fountain, too. So far we have two and another is on its way. Here we are ordering reubens.
This is the outside of this diner near the airport. The other one is closer to my house, but we were having an adventure.
Who wouldn't love a malt like this? And this is a half! We shared one, so they put it in 2 containers!
Our downtown area has been a huge ongoing project to attract business and visitors. We have a huge auditorium, many historic buildings renovated into upscale aparrtments, and an Old Market area with brick streets, horse-drawn carriages trendy shopping, art stores, etc.. Since this used to be the prairie, much of the art is focused on the westward movement. Behind is the World Herald Newspaper building. The next stage of the project will be reflected in the glass on the side of that building.
These huge statues of pioneers are incredible. Beautiful down to the last detail. Up close you can see the movement of the horses and even the pioneers' clothing. On another corner are the buffalo.
