Earlier in the week, I noticed that construction had started on the skyway golf course. I went to http://www.skywayopen.org to get the details and marked my calendar for a midday mini photo walk. Over lunch, Erin and I took photos of the hole in the IDS/Macy's skyway that features Grainbelt Beer but after I left work in the afternoon I found my favorite design by far. "Dozens of curious onlookers stopped for a look as they passed hole #6 in City Center. Designed by Ellerbe Becket and built by Kraus-Anderson, the hole featured putter heads connected to beer taps. A well struck ball navigated through a bar filled with empty beer bottles from local brewers.
'What we have here is retro drinko. It gives us a different element to express our creativity. Then you have the bonus of it going to a great cause like the Boys & Girls Club,' Ellerbe Becket designer Steve Gamache said."

I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
