Dizzy Kaktus sprouting on Main Street

Three-armed saguaro planted 
on Main @ Congress 

 New Main Street Taco concept has a moniker: dizzy kaktus

It's not totally original, -- neither the succulent theme, nor the Breakfast Klub-like spelling.
The Pistolero on Lower Westheimer boast a cactus-spiked perimeter, and then there is Cactus Music at Shepherd Plaza, and the massive saguaro sign it left behind in front of what is now a Whole Earth Provision Co. store when Cactus of musical fame moved to its current location on Portsmouth Street.

How not to do signage: Too high for pedestrians on the East side of Main,
too dark, and too little contast between logo & letters and background
