The momentum of the sports and entertainment venue project has already garnered $128 million in investment commitments in the downtown including apartments, a brewery, restaurants, office space and a potential hotel. Every good adventure sparks a big appetite.

For 'cue, stop in at acclaimed Jim 'N Nick's Bar- B-Q.
