Joe Genovese, President, Genovese Jewelers: The grand opening of the Peabody Opera House was an impressive event. Even though the entertainment was great, I was much more impressed with the venue itself. From the marble floors to the grand staircases, I could not shake the feeling that I had gone back in time. Plus, I love the fact that it was done by local developers and not some huge, out-of-state company.
