Due for a Revival

A trio of block patterns, throughout the bay area--an architectural use I'd like to see make a comeback.

Globe O' Booze

I needed a drink when I got home from TIA, so it's only fitting to start back up with the World Liquors sign on Central Avenue in St. Pete.

Temporary Skyline

A cruise liner looms over the Bennigan's on the second floor of Channelside. In front, giving some scale, is the covered escalator to the second level.

Everything Changes

I never would have gone to something like the Home & Remodelling Show that was at the Trop last weekend before. But before buying a condo, I never would have spent three days painting indoor walls, either. I wish there had been more cool stuff, such that you might see on HGTV, but at any rate, here's a series of (relative) highlights.

Here is the Trop all luau-ed out at the Exotic Plumeria booth, followed by...

The Weekender

The Weekender outdoor grill, just under $9200, including deep fryer.

Hoffman Spa Collection

...and my favorite, the Rock Salt Crystal Lamps, made from 100% crystallized Himalayan salt.
