Might be true in some places. I know for me, I would go out to one of the nearby restaurants or sports bars maybe 2-3 times a week either before or after a game. Without hockey? No reason for me to drive 20 miles just to hit a restaurant when there is literally another option on every corner between home and the arena. And I'm fairly sure I'm the rule not the exception because very few people live in downtown Tampa.
Already one sports bar near the Forum has closed and a couple of others are really getting pinched hard.
