Over on the Marketplace side the former McDonald's building is in full-scale renovation mode with replacement Pollo Campero signs now displayed on the construction walls.
With the huge Star Wars convention at the Orange County Convention Center taking place next week, the Lego Imagination Center is fully loaded with Star Wars Lego products. Even the D-Street/Vinylmation Store on the West Side was carrying Star Wars products.
Whatever construction is coming to the PI #1 Bridge has yet to begin. Large groups of tourists stop at the PI sign to contemplate their many Island options.
A daytime view of Rock'n'roll Beach Club. My nighttime shots last week were difficult to see. Meanwhile, over at House Of Blues the concert list is up but nothing impresses me. Flaming Lips are about the only band I recognize. Sources say DJ Deadmau5 (CDN) will never return to HOB or even to Orlando because someone threw a bottle at him during his concert there last November. I saw people throwing paper balls at him but I didn't see the bottle. No one deserves that! That's all from PI and DTD for now. Stay tuned for all the latest news and rumors here on the Blog!
