What’s the big deal? • 2 new hotels, $50M expansion by Tropicana Evansville, $87M IU Medical School. • 3 terrific restaurants opening in previously empty buildings – BRU Burger Bar (see cover) in the old Greyhound Bus Station Terminal, Arazu on Main World Cuisine, Comfort by CrossEyed Cricket. Along with other retail and service businesses, downtown is thriving! Our historic Cultural Districts continue to offer more retail, restaurants/bars, events, and nightlife along with their own unique slant on the neighborhood feel of each.
