For Glens Falls and South Glens Falls restaurants, the Wednesday night rush started around 5 p.m. and eased up by 7 p.m. around tip-off, with bars picking up much of the post-game business.
Kevin Bethel, owner of 132 Glen Bistro, said the crowds reminded him of the 2009 season opener for the Adirondack Phantoms. His downstairs and upstairs dining rooms were packed, he said, with mostly local diners.
"From 5 to 7, it was nothing but slamming out food," Bethel said.
