Really Old DIA News
I was out at the airport late last night and finally saw a chance to see the late Luis Jimenez’s new Mustang sculpture at night. (He was killed in ’06 when the torso fell on him in studio.)
I’ve passed by this sculpture a few times by daylight, but at 30 feet tall with beady shiny red eyes this certainly makes an impression at night. Yikes.

In less seizure inducing (old) news, this snazzy new tourist office opened this spring, and greets arrivals opposite the big fountain in the main terminal. Clean lines, good lighting, and more helpful and welcoming than a brochure rack. I was there at 11:30pm and they were still open! Even better it doesn’t frighten children.
More current: The Fastracks “A” line (downtown/airport) alignment and stations have been revised. Check out the updated map at this RMN article, and see info on how to make your opinion heard. The title of my blog suggests I won’t be riding it regularly when it opens in 2014. But that’s a long way off…
Were you wondering what’s new at Watercourse Foods? I’ll be visiting this week with my gluton-free, non wheat or dairy eating mom. She’s never been to Watercourse or City O’ City and I’m looking forward to surprising her!
