Tonight, Brian and I went to the Mohegan Sun casino. To some, this is a tourist attraction and resort that people come from all over the country and the world to see, but for us, being that it was erected in our proverbial backyards, it is just a place to go get Ben & Jerry’s waffle cones at midnight. Because you can totally do that there.
This thing you see in the photo above, I’m not really sure what that is. There is a big ass waterfall that runs over the entrance to Todd English’s Tuscany restaurant, and then it flows under the walkway that you use to get from one half of the casino to the other, and this thing is in the middle of a bridge that goes over the waterfall/river thing. It’s made of blown glass, and usually it’s blue and white, but it was lighted up for Christmas and looked all pink and purple last night. The casino was packed, and tons of people were milling around taking pictures of this thing, so I thought I would, too.
For the record, I am not the only one who thinks this beautiful blown glass piece of art looks like a bong.
