Local business owners and staff surrounding UPMC Park are excited about the return to the ball park.
After more than a year of dining restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, local managers and restaurant owners are looking forward to seeing more businesses.
Staff from Slices on French and Cloud 9 Wine Bar said that the Seawolves season will provide a sense of normalcy.
“Just to be able to see people, see people enjoying themselves and getting out there and enjoying the weather and the sports it feels like it’s been a long time. So we’re excited to see it come back,” said Halle Hardin, Manager of Slices on French.
“It’s going to be a little chilly tonight, but I hope people are just anxious to go out and they will. Now businesswise we’re gonna see what happens,” said Betrand Artigues, Owner of Cloud 9 Wine Bar.
Though it’s colder this evening, staff from businesses surrounding the ballpark say that they look forward to a potentially busier summer.
