I came out of Rock Bottom Brewery last night with some friends on my way to the David Sedaris talk at the Aronoff when I sensed an otherworldly light around me. They were test driving the new video screen looming above Fountain Square for the grand reopening on Saturday. Ted pointed out that it was actually causing us to cast shadows on the sidewalk.
Hard to imagine how the Square will be ready to launch on Saturday -- we walked past exposed rebar sticking out of the unfinished surface behind the construction fences and cranes were still working full tilt. From the artist renderings I had imagined I'd see groves of trees and grassy play areas. Everything I saw was concrete. What do I know about construction, but it'll be dazzling if they bring this one in for a landing on time.
