Lost in the Music

The Vegas StrEats Festival is one of the art driven monthly activities created as part of the revitalization of downtown Las Vegas.  During the second Saturday evening of every month, the El Cortez sponsors the street fair event complete with art exhibits, food trucks and live music.  Despite the unconventional cold 30 degree temperatures, a venue otherwise normally wall to wall people turned out a few die-heats, among which was an older lady, seemingly lost in the music.
