Lovely Las Vegas: John S. Park Historic District
I was privileged to be guest to a cozy dinner in the John S. Park Historic District in old Las Vegas (proximal to the art district, dowtown and the Strip). Recently, this hip, vintage neighborhood was named one of the "Great Places in America 2010" by the American Planning Association.
This cute, vintage (by Las Vegas standards), unassuming white house
was the locale of the lovely dinner of last night.
Besides of view of the Strip, the backyard is home to a cute gazebo
and the sweetest of sweet black labs.
So much green grass! Very old Vegas.
Appetizer: peppercini peppers and jalapeno-stuffed green olives (yummy)
A savory lasagna that was lovely on the eyes and the stomach.
with anchovies (a wonderful touch).
We also had divine garlic bread with chopped garlic hunks.
We also saw some cool art and paintings in progress as appropriate per this neighborhood, played with the black lab, a tiny little puppy Daschund, and a marbled cat with gorgeous green eyes.
And watched the 2007 film King of California (intriguing).
For some reason my art and precious pet photos aren't posting, though!
C'est la vie... I'll try later.
