I'll start off this week with these side and rear views of the mantis at Container Park.
Trivia note: it should be no surprise the mantis has a Burning Man pedigree, but it was also an anniversary gift.
Continuing the creature simulation theme, here's the opening of Tim Ho Wan at the Palms, a few months before the pandemic.
On to living creatures: the Rescued Treasures Cat Cafe is now open on weekday afternoons in addition to weekends (Wed - Sun).
And not to leave out the dogs, I just discovered A Path 4 Paws. They hold adoptions every weekend.
