Imagine all the people filing out and then heading to southtown or downtown for a nightcap.
The original plan for the arena was supposed to be in the parking lot of the Alamodome, but the tax payers rejected it on the ballet. I never understood why the plan to tax the rental cars and hotels couldn't be used for a downtown arena. From what I remember the rental car/hotel tax was created once the location was proposed to be at the Coliseum and the rodeo would be sharing the facility.
