The cultural center of Richmond

The other day I told my friend Glen that I was hoping to get the Byrd Theatre for our church to meet in.  His response was something like:  "That would be amazing.  The Byrd is one of the top 3 most recognizable landmarks in Richmond."  I agree completely.  It really is a great place.  On New Year's Eve- roughly 20,000 people showed up on Cary Street to listen to bands, get ripped, and watch the ball drop...except here in Richmond the ball goes up...weird...Anyway, here is a photo from on top of the Byrd looking down at the crowd.  In the far left of the picture, in the darkness, you see some lights.   One of those lights is my house.
