CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - Businessman David Knight hopes to build a riverboat and
entertainment complex at Cape Girardeau. He is pursuing a casino partner for his
endeavor despite the announcement by the Missouri Gaming Commission to freeze
all new applications until voters decide in November whether to the state should
license new casinos.
Knight is the owner of barbecue oven manufacturer Ole Hickory Pits. He has
partnered with Jim Riley, the owner of Red Letter Communications, to form a
company named Dreambig LLC. Together they have picked up an option to purchase
the land along North Main Street owned by a Las Vegas company that once planned
to develop a casino.
The only riverboat casino south of St. Louis is in Caruthersville, Missouri.
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
