Several San Marcos businesses reported a spike in business due to this year’s World Cup.
After a solid month of soccer, the 2014 FIFA World Cup concluded when the German national team defeated Argentina 1-0 in overtime. Local bars like Sean Patrick’s Irish Pub and The Railyard Bar and Grill were two businesses that saw major increases in clientele due to patrons wanting to tune in to the action taking place in Brazil.
“We were busy for most of the games,” said Chance Garbutt, manager at Sean Patrick’s. “We had a lot of different people coming in; different fans for different countries depending which game was going on. The U.S. games were obviously the busiest.”
