The numbers might look good to a few, but many are are avoiding the"entertainment tax" by staying home. That tiny percentage has made a big difference in citizen spending. It adds up to bad for the economy.

blasphemer - if folks are avoiding this local sale tax, how do you explain that the City has reported: "sales tax collections in 2013 were better than expected."

J/S & r/w - I agree - it would be great if there is clear visibility to where these funds are allocated/spent.

If there is not going to be 2 sheets of ice, don't build it. And no you do not want to build one and then add another down the road. Once again hockey gets the short end if the stick.

It was a boondoggle from the start predicated on lies and cow manure.
