Marathon ribbon cutting ceremonies in the Arts District...

It is no secret that Downtown redevelopment is picking up momentum. From news reports coming in from all around the country the focus has been more and more concentrated on the city's historic center. Though Las Vegas is notorious for making it to the bottom of many lists, Downtown has broken that streak and landed itself as one of the top 10 Best Cities for Young Artists http://flavorwire.com/169898/the-best-cities-for-young-artists/4#post_body . As the Creative Class is finding its way back Downtown thanks to new developments such as lounges, cafe's, restaurants, neighborhood bodegas, galleries and so much more, the future is bright for this Radiant City we call home.

This afternoon the 18b Arts District is celebrating the opening of 4 new establishments. Our beloved Mayor Oscar B. Goodman will personally welcome each of the new establishments with a ribbon cutting ceremony and maybe even a Martini in hand.

The festivities begin sharply at 5pm at Resnicks Grocery and will wind there way to Lady Silvia Lounge, Artifice Bar and Lounge and finish up at Bar at Bar + Bistro at the Historic Arts Factory.
