The building in which I work, now called CityCenter, but built as the imposing headquarters of the First National Bank, celebrates the 100th anniversary of its opening today with a huge bash at the building, 735 N. Water St., and on the streets outside (weather permitting). Admission to the bash, which has three stages of live music, dancing, cocktails and more, is free, and it kicks off at 4 p.m.
