BOSTON (WHDH) — A sea of Celtics fans will flock to TD Garden Wednesday night for Game 3 of the NBA playoffs.
Their green shirts and chains also let local business owners and restaurant owners see a different kind of green.
In Hub Hall, which is directly below the court, bartender Bryan Martinez said that with COVID-19 in the rearview mirror and the C’s in the playoffs, business is booming for the first time in more than a decade.
“It’s absolutely insane, honestly. Everyone is elbow to elbow, the bar is full, everyone is trying to get a drink and we are running around trying to serve everyone,” he said. “But we’ll be fine.”
At nearby West End Johnnie’s, owner John Caron said the bar is fully stocked and ready to go. The only thing that will be hard to come by – reservations.
The Shine of Luckiness watches over Half Time Pizza, and those who work there say the playoffs have only been good for business.
“Everyone is super excited. There’s a good energy in the neighborhood right now. It’s just great to see everyone outside and smiling,” said owner Joe Catalano.
