Downtown Container Park | November 30, 2013 | 10:38 p.m.

Lately, Downtown has really been kicking out the jams, and quite frankly, this place is my new favorite jam. How can they call it Container Park when I could hardly contain myself? First, I was greeted by the bowling pin juggler who was walking on top of a yoga ball like “ain’t no thang,” then I discovered the Park’s massive treehouse. I expected the upstairs to be a facade like many other make-believe upstairs walkways around town, but the upstairs here is real. There’s more outdoor seating than any person who likes chairs could ask for. And I love chairs! You can tell quite a bit about a place by how happy the workers seem, and the nice people in vests working inside the Container Park all seem delighted to be there. What I’m trying to say is, this container is full of dreams. And to the dome in the corner, I’ll see you next weekend.

  • It was time for a cocktail with UNLV's beloved journalism professor.

  • The Historic Westside destination was a boarding house that became a safe haven for black Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam) construction workers.

  • Nothing short of a spectacle was expected. The 40-minute left-turn wait on Durango Drive was understandable.
