A Vexing Bathroom Mural


My apologies for laying off the blogging since I returned to Vegas from the funeral. It's been all I could do to simply focus on getting some work done and make up financially for last week. It is the curse of the self-employed that we must worry about money during a dramatic family emergency. I'll be posting a lot this weekend to make up for it, I suspect.

ANYHOW... let's get this party restarted with a little quiz for you. Take a good look at this mural above. It's recently been painted over the toilet at ReJavaNate, the brilliant independent cafe where I do most of my writing.

Can you help me identify all the buildings? This is what I've got from left to right:

Mandalay Bay, Luxor, DON'T KNOW A, DON'T KNOW B, DON'T KNOW C, Wynn Las Vegas, DON'T KNOW D, Stratosphere. Here's a closer look:

Anyone?

A looks to be New York, New York's skyline and B, I think, is Bellagio, with that stylized version of the tower-y thing at the center of the hotel. The other two ... don't know ... -sm

see, I thought maybe the bellagio one was the palms -- you know, that sort of swoopy thing they have. i mean, maybe he drawing's perspective is off? And DONT KNOW C might be the future Vdara? Altho that would be to the left of the bellagio...

Yeah, I think A is NYNY, B is Bellagio (the dome-ish thing on top?), and C is the Caesar's tower that is perpendicular to the rest of the Strip. Dunno about D...
