Get into the Grove

Last night, past my bedtime (9:00 PM), I received a text message from my brother-in-law Gary. In it was this photo with the caption "Just took this @ the grove in LA". A little research reveals that "for shopping, dining and simply loving life, The Grove is your ultimate entertainment destination". Shopping and dining I get... and I presume the "loving life" part has to do with this picture (after all, Level 3 is practically synonymous with Joie de Vivre). What I don't get is the size of their parking tickets. Assuming the icon of the man carrying his ticket is to-scale, those tickets must be over two feet long! Perhaps watching people carry their enormous parking tickets back to their vehicles is the entertainment.

Denver Museum of Natural History

Whether you want to explore Colorado (where I live) or South America (where I'm from), the Denver Museum of Natural History has it all on Level 3. Quite convenient.

Illegal 3

According to the secret rules of travel (of which I had heretofore been blissfully unaware), your passport is no longer good for travel to Ecuador six months prior to its stated expiration date. My passport expires in November, which added forty minutes of persistent pleading -and much uncertainty as to whether they'd actually let me on the plane- to my check-in. The funny thing is that outside of this Delta airlines agent, no one else I came in touch with (i.e. immigration in both countries) seemed to care. Another secret rule of travel is "thou shalt not take pictures whilst in a federal sorting facility". I learned this rule from a uniformed federal officer in Atlanta international airport who appeared out of nowhere shortly after taking this picture. Who knew? The fact that passport control takes place on Level 3 seemed a fitting closure to a delightful (albeit hectic) trip.

ME 3

And now I've found the three. Okay, so the photo is not all that level. But take this post and the prior; stitch them together; eliminate the common denominator (i.e. Me) and you've pieced together a Level 3. See? Si!

Level ME

All right, so the place is actually called Level UP... but work with me on this one. UP is a positive word. I am a positive guy. Three would positevily be the better complement to this Level-named gaming shop at the Orchard mall. Plus I had time to kill before my movie. So, here it is! (continued on next post)

Level 3 has been seen even in the Boondocks (fun center -Northglen CO), at the very center (of a game).

I was busy vacationing in Florida this week while my out-of-office notices were busy giving people the wrong information (courtesy of a glitch in MS Outlook). This led some folks to wonder whether I was MIA. In a sense, that was the case. You see, while I was not missing in action, I did fly in and out of Miami International Airport. Which leads me to the reason for this post. As evidenced by this photo the words Level 3 are not MIA in MIA.

The Denver Public Library

The public library. A compilation of knowledge conveniently compressed into a city block. It should come as no surprise that such a place would triple the Level 3. Sometimes knowledge and wisdom can go hand-in-hand.

DCPA Parking

The main level at the Denver Center for the Performig Arts parking lot (where all the theaters are) is, fittingly, Level 3.
Now, did being able to take this photo make it worth the $10 parking fee? Definetely. Plus we had a great night out on the town (bonus!)

SAD (Sheraton Austin Downtown)

The movement to keep Austin weird appears to be alive and well. That is certainly the case at the downtown Sheraton, where light is the ink used on a block canvas to paint a bright Level 3. Unique. This photo comes courtesy of Ray Wendell and was taken at the Sheraton Hotel near the Intrado Austin central office (formerly HBF). Hmmm... Ray... light... Level 3... it's all coming together perfectly.

A new level of responsibility

At my son Pablo's kindergarten tonight I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite the lack of a third floor there is a Level 3. Now that's what I call being Responsible for Yourself!

Ski 3

New camera. Nothing to do while sitting on the chairlift in A-Basin. A number 3. Add them up and you get this post. Stretching it, I know. Flimsy, again, I know. Be that as it may... it's up nonetheless (for now).
