Twice now in the past 24 hours, I have heard the name, "Carondelet" on the radio. This is more than I can remember hearing it in the past 6 months. And this is only the beginning.
The new River City Casino is about to open, and advertisements on major radio stations are telling people to exit I-55 at the Carondelet or Germania exits.
Everytime you hear the name Carondelet or Germania, you are reminded of those south city landmarks. This is a good thing.
Casino activity will increase traffic into the area, and that will be good for local businesses.
