Casino Opposition Holds 'Where's the Beef?' Barbecue
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Many came to a local Bohemian Club in downtown Cedar Rapids to enjoy live entertainment and food - but they also came with a question.
"Where's the Beef?" is what this evening's event is called. It's their way of saying that they want more specifics from casino supporters.
"We say, 'where is the beef?' because there are so many questions out there that are left unanswered. Where are they going to put the casino? Who are the people or list of investors? And who are they going to have run the casino?" Todd Henderson with the Just Say No Casino group said.
Another goal of this event is to promote local entertainment industries. The Just Vote No group believes that small businesses in the area would suffer with a casino, because it would draw away many of their customers.
The casino vote will take place in four weeks on March 5.
