During its monthly meeting at the Superdome on Wednesday, the commission praised the entertainment square outside of the Superdome that opened this past summer.

In just more than four months, and with just 16 days of operation, the 60,000-foot square that typically opened before New Orleans Saints games and other big events at the Superdome netted the LSED more than $800,000 in revenue.

That number is expected to more than double this year as more events are added, LSED board members said.

"This was our first year to operate, and I think we learned a lot about the way the space operates on game day and even non-Saints events, " said Doug Thornton, the regional vice president of SMG, the company that manages the Superdome and the adjacent New Orleans Arena on behalf of the state. "What we found is that people enjoy coming there pregame. It's an added feature for the campus of facilities that we have, whether it be a Saints game, Hornets game or a special event like the Bayou Classic or the Sugar Bowl.

Okay, all you Hornet fans, time to support your team and your DOME!! I use to go see the Hornets here in NC and I'm thinking it's time to pay them a visit in New Orleans! But I have to admit, the Saints are soooo much more fun to watch!
