Saints fans flock to local bars after Thanksgiving dinner


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- Who Dats in Baton Rouge say a Saintsgiving is the best way to end the holiday.

Saints fans flocked to Mid City Beer Garden on Government Street after their Thanksgiving meal.

“All the best Drew, you’re the reason I’m a saints fan,” said one fan.

“We had family over at our house today. Had really good food. Lots of Turkey, sweet potato casserole. Now we’re here to support our Saints and here with the family and friends,” said Saints fan Riley Womack.

Mid City Beer Garden Manager Micheal Schmelzer says the excitement at the bar is finally back after a rough year dealing with covid-19 restrictions.

“Last year, yeah, it was the midst of covid. I think it was the peak, definitely saw a decline in business and it was difficult to get people in. Now that we’re fully open we have seen a significant increase in business,” he said.

Schmelzer says business is booming thanks to the football season.

“So much fun. We have a good crowd for Saints games. Rowdy folks they come in and do the who at chant,” he said.

Mid City Beer Garden expects to have more events like Saintsgiving now that they’re back to normal business.
