Haven’t decided yet what you think should happen to the Astrodome? The preservation-minded folks at Our Astrodome hope that seeing this 26-ft. bedazzled semi just might do the trick. Starting Monday and running up to the elections on November 5, when voters will decide whether to approve — or not, and, as most suspect, doom the Dome to a more thorough demolition than what’s already happening — that $217 bond measure that would fund a renovation of the stadium into convention space, the tricked-out Dome Mobile will be rolling around town to spread the word about Proposition 2 and the world’s first domed stadium.
It ain’t exactly an art car. But you’ll see these boosterish stickers and a photo-op rendering of the New Dome on the exterior. Inside, you’ll be able to write stuff about the Astrodome on the truck’s “story wall” while you try to keep your balance on real — and presumably sanitized — Astroturf! The truck’s first stop Monday morning will be at Crave Cupcakes in Uptown — where you’ll be able to munch on one of those gooey promotional red velvets. You can see the rest of the scheduled stops on the local tour here.
