Here she is, the fire-breathing praying mantis going into the Container Park in Downtown. The sculpture, a relic of Burning Man, sits 55 feet tall at the main entrance and will periodically shoot flames from its antenna.

When the Container Park opens, it will be home to the first Pinches Tacos in Vegas, along with something called either The Bar or The Container Bar from Michael Cornthwaite and his Future Restaurant Group, three taverns dubbed The Boozery, VIP Bar and a wine purveyor named Bin 702, an off-shoot of Beat Coffeehouse called The Beatnik, Pork & Beans beer and sausage concept, Big Ern's BBQ and The Charcuterie.

Phase one of the Container Park is scheduled to open in July, with the entire operation running by the fall.
