It’s almost a very long weekend (3 days for us folks who get Memorial Day off). I couldn’t be more excited, and you know why? Because I’m going to Sin City this weekend for Punk Rock Bowling. I would tell you how excited I am but that would take too long. I absolutely love Las Vegas. Right down to the empty plastic liquor bottles that only add to the keenly landscaped streets. My boyfriend and I were just in Vegas in November to see Morrissey (!!!) We spent some time in old, downtown Vegas, Fremont Street, and I fell in love with my surroundings. I snapped a few photos of my favorite environmental typography. Since we’re staying on Fremont this time, I hope to find even more!
Most of us have some fascination with everything mid-century. I certainly do, a lot of it I can attribute to being so close with my grandparents. I’m a huge film nerd, and seeing remnants of Vegas’ past on Fremont Street sends me back to a certain time period in film. Have a look and see for yourself. Just be careful that you don’t fall asleep and wake up in the past.
