Hotel Rosslyn neon, all lit up

I can't remember the last time I saw the Hotel Rosslyn roof signs on display over Downtown, but I was pleased to see the northern one of the pair fired up for Thursday night's Art Walk — and more pleased when artist and blogdowntown Arts and Culture Editor Ed Fuentes captured the image.

(Longtime LAO readers will need no reminding that Celia's sister, Laura Esguerra, passed away less than four months after the wedding.)
