Local businesses celebrate the big game


Whether you are rooting for the team up north or the Buckeyes, you are more than likely tailgating somewhere Saturday.

Local eateries like Desperados Bar & Grill in Huntsville, Brewfontaine in downtown Bellefontaine, and Iron City on South Main in Bellefontaine are celebrating in big ways as they are rooting for their teams.

Celebrating the big game has proven to local businesses an increase in revenue, sometimes as much as 30%.

Desperados will have the game on their big screen and offer drink specials beginning at noon, Brewfontaine will have it on as well.

Iron City Sports Bar will host their annual Buckeye Bash with Bj & Billie. The party kicks off at 11 AM and will conclude at the end of the game. Specials are offered throughout the game, along with a 50/50, a raffle, and much more.

You can catch the game on 98.3 WPKO as the Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Michigan Wolverines. The pre-game kicks off at 10:30 AM and the game at noon.
