Americana Holiday Update

The 106-foot tall Christmas tree at The Americana has now been painted bright green. These pictures don't show it that well, but it really is shockingly green.

There is also a cutesy Santa house under construction. Santa will be available starting on November 16th. The tree lighting ceremony (with fireworks) is on November 15th.

In response to the dismal state of the economy, I noticed that several of the businesses at the Americana are now having discount sales and meal specials. For instance, Frida, purveyor of $19 enchiladas, has now introduced a lunch menu with items in the $8 to $12 range. This is certainly a welcome addition given that there aren't any other decent Mexican restaurants in downtown Glendale.

This week I also spoke with a valet at the Americana and confirmed that free bike valet service is now available. Thank you, Mr. Caruso!
