Q: What Do You Do With 900 Tons of Broken Booze Bottles?

The new landscaping is carrying on the new color scheme through the I-5 corridor through downtown Sacramento. Over a clear glass base, backhoes are scooping a green and amber combination, topped off by a special layer of broken blue from Skyy Vodka bottles.

Intriguing… but broken glass makes me nervous no matter where it is.
