spotted at tysons corner center

A few random shots from Mom and I's trip to the expanded Tysons Corner Center, which celebrated its grand reopening this past weekend.

Here's a picture of your friendly neighborhood blogger after a good night's rest at the Holiday Inn across from Tysons. I'm not actually cross-eyed, by the way.

Elegant dining at Brio Tuscan Grille. Believe it or not, that's inside the mall.

The purple lighting thing floating over the escalators in the "restaurant court."

Escalators from thr old section of the mall up to the new third-floor food court-movie theater area.

A DJ on the "wheels of steel" at Guess?

For my sign fetishists: a creat sign for Costal Flats restaurant and Esprit's sign is visble from the second level.

Unfortunately, Rainforest Cafe didn't make it long enough to be part of the grand opening festivities. It closed this month in the old section, but left a giant mushroom behind.


  1. Why did the Rainforest Cafe close? I love Rainforest Cafe.

  2. I'm not sure. The best I can figure, their lease was up and they either didn't want to or couldn't renew. The screwed up part was that it was open and very busy the last time I was at the mall a month ago.
