ESPN and the Irish Good for Local Economy

By  | 

ESPN's College Game Day has set up shop in East Lansing for the Spartans and the Fighting Irish. Local restaurants and hotels are making a killing.

Tom Bramson from the Harrison Roadhouse says no one will have the day off. This game is normally one of the busiest day's of the year for the Roadhouse, Bramson says, with the ESPN coverage it could be even bigger.

Many of those Roadhouse customers will be staying at area hotels like the Mariott and the Kellog Center. Both places are at capacity with reservations having been made a year in advance.
