Margaritaville closes at 10 pm on weeknights so I don't expect they saw any after game traffic. The Yardhose closes at midnight except weekends so it doesn't seem like they relied on much after game traffic. Barely enough time to order some food and have a bevy and the place is closed for the night.

I don't doubt people dined here before games. I saw it for myself but the actual numbers pale in comparison to the dire straits predicted if the Coyotes depart. If these places had any amount of Coyote traffic they would be open until 2am after games on weeknights. You don't close your doors if customers are about to walk through.
