    Overpriced tourist traps with lousy food.

    Won't be sad to see them go, but I'm still surprised.

    Will leave some large spaces to fill in very expensive real estate. Will be interested to see how quickly the landlords will be able to find new tenants in this market.

    Only ever went to one. It left me with no desire to go to another.

    Is the Sporting News Grill still open?

    Oh, but where will Berman have his deux-deux-deuxs delivered?
  5. I've been to 4 of them. I liked them. You knew what you were getting and you could always see any game you wanted to see. I was a fan of the front row lazy-boy seats.

    Thank God we still have the Fox Sports Grill at McCarren.

    I liked the TV setup in the Chicago one but the food was mediocre at best and absurdly overpriced. And the cost of the games was even more ridiculous. Can't say I'm shocked to see them go and won't particularly miss them. I wonder what will go in its place next to Pizzeria Uno now.

    The one downtown on the pedestrian-friendly street closed over a year ago. Haven't heard anyone who has missed it. I went once. Plenty of other places out here with lots better food and better environments.

    The article mentioned that Denver & Atlanta had closed last year.

    Has anything replaced it?

    Went to the Chicago one once, and I never met anyone from SportsCenter there.

    A bar next door to it but not in the ESPN Zone location.

    I went to the one in Baltimore's Inner Harbor over ten years ago. They didn't have sweet tea. I never went back.
