That would make a good "Guess the City" picture.

Yep! That's the Memphis Pyramid. It showed up on a Guess the City picture once, and several people guessed Giza.

Does it serve a purpose? Is it a sculpture or part of an amusement park...? It looks like it would fit right in with the infamous spoon and cherry we have here in Minneapolis.

EDIT" Wikipedia says - The Memphis Pyramid has not been regularly used as a sports or entertainment venue since 2004. In 2015, the Pyramid re-opened as a Bass Pro Shops "megastore", which includes shopping, a hotel, restaurants, a bowling alley, and an archery range, with an outdoor observation deck adjacent to its apex.

Damn, that's pretty interesting. An arena....did the Memphis Grizzlies play there?

As a matter of fact, they did for their first three seasons in Memphis.
