Chicago Bears fans who made the trip to Nashville last Sunday to watch their team take on the Tennessee Titans were treated to quite the show. The Bears’ defense was dominant from the start and had the team out to a 28-2 lead after only one quarter. After the game, the fans headed out for some well-deserved celebration.
We have all heard the phrase “drink the town dry” before, but has it actually ever happened? According to NBC Chicago, Bears fans nearly turned the saying into a reality after Sunday’s game. Several Nashville establishments, including the Paradise Park Trailer Resort, reported that they ran out of beer extremely early. The Paradise Park Trailer Resort said it had no bottled beer left by dinner time.
NBC Chicago reported that estimations had the number of Bears fans in the stands at LP Field at more than 50% of the stadium’s capacity. Perhaps the Nashville bars are not used to patrons peppering them following Titans games, as many of them likely head home after watching their team lose yet again.
As a business owner you never want to run out of any service you provide, but I’m sure the Nashville bar and restaurant owners welcomed the fact that they were able to stuff their pockets courtesy of Bears nation. After all, it’s not like they were lighting jerseys on fire.
