By now I can pretty much recognize downtown landmarks within half a second of spotting them in all the commercials that get shot here.

Like this one from Lexus that caught my eye on one of the many big screens at ESPN Zone when we were there for my brother’s birthday. (0:16 mark)

This time it was the familiar 7th Street in my City West neighborhood, lined with old motels and apartment buildings that still bear the old signs. Just one of the perks of living west of the 110.
