The Pyramids of Memphis

It's going back in time a little bit, I know, but I just wanted to mention that there's a giant glass-and-steel pyramid in downtown Memphis, TN.

This pyramid is currently empty.  If you think of it as a cultural symbol, a monument to the culture of the area, it points one towards wondering what sort of thing would go *into* this pyramid.  Something deeply reflective of the aspirations and beliefs of the culture surrounding it?

Previously, it was a casino.

Next, it will be a tackle shop (Bass Pro - link).  Note that the website refers to the pyramid as "one of America's best known icons."

Tackle, fishing rods, camouflage, camping gear, guns, bullets, scopes, and plenty more.
