Local businesses benefit from football season

April 8, 2006

Albany -- Some downtown restaurants are expecting more business after the big game.

Harvest Moon will have its kitchen open two hours later than usual and has scheduled extra servers to work the floor.

Tonight they are featuring Wildcats drink specials as well as some of the pro-ball players and dance team in house signing autographs. Managers say they are expecting a big crowd tonight for the post game after party.

"Glad the Wildcats seasons is starting back up. It brings a lot of people to Albany, to downtown Albany. I think they support the whole city of Albany on nights like this because it gets people out," said owner Bo Henry.

Henry says there was a definite pickup in business during football season last year and expects the same this year.
