Downtown at Sunrise

 



This morning I headed to downtown, where in the sunrise light I saw the new Circa hotel-casino illuminated.



In a state with an economy built on tourism and gambling, I've always been amused that gambling is called "gaming."

That's why I always enjoy stores that tell it like it like it is -- and what it is is gambling.




I also adored this bike rack on Main Street.

And there was something about this scene that said, "Old economy, new economy."



I began bicycling down las Vegas Boulevard and saw the big Welcome to Las Vegas structure that is being built in front of The Strat.


 



The Strip was quiet at 7 a.m. Kind of like how it was when so many people were bilking the Strip when it the hotel-casinos were closed in April and May.

Then it was off to the Raiders' new football stadium, which is a massive update from their previous Alamada stadium home.
