It was a Three-Ring Circus at 7th and Montana this morning as a crew of workers transformed the nearly-empty building across from Our Favorite Starbucks into a colorful Big Top. Actually, inside sources report that they're fumigating like crazy before the Subway sandwich shop moves in. "Hmmmm," I said, "This puts Patty's Pizza in a whole new light." Patty's, which vacated the premises several months ago, had a nice, crunchy salad on the menu if I remember correctly. Let's just hope it was made with Pine Nuts. Meanwhile, as for me, I've traded one Circus for another. I just arrived in Las Vegas for a series of meetings at the Palazzo, which is part of the Venetian Hotel.
