The New Game in Town Cleveland is about to become a casino town as the first phase of the Horseshoe Casino opens on Public Square Monday. Are we ready? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll visit with casino owner Dan Gilbert, then spend some time talking about what to expect inside and outside the Horseshoe when the cards are dealt and the dice are rolled. It'll be an interesting discussion. You can bet on it, Thursday at 9:00 on 90.3.
