In Nebraska if you want to go see a concert you drive to Omaha. You want a great steak, Omaha. Maybe a national convention, that’s right — Omaha. Eager to make a larger mark on the map, the much smaller city of Lincoln has decided to give its big brother a run for its money. How you ask? By taking a $344 million “Bring Back Main Street” approach to grow and enhance the historic Haymarket District. Full of stylish new gastro pubs, classic hotel renewals and selected preservation of a historic rail yard — Lincoln has been given one heck of a face-lift. Lighting up the sky and towering above it all lies the new Pinnacle Bank Arena designed by DLR Group Architects. Home of the University of Nebraska’s men and women’s basketball, this newly expanded city has some very passionate fans walking its streets, or could we say flooding it? What better draw to fill those hotels and sell those gastro beers than an expedition game on the 4th or a Pink performance on the 9th? I’d actually love to be there for the Pink show.
