  • What's My Name Amphitheater

The downtown amphitheater in Raleigh won't be the BLA after all. The state ABC says it can't be named for Bud Light or any other booze item. Doggone it, the BLA seemed so perfect.

$300,000 a year times 5 years = $1.5 million down the drain.

More on this from Grayson Currin on the Triangulator blog.
