Restaurants and bars in the Arena District are hoping a winning Blue Jackets team will improve what has been a dismal year for business. The worsening economy has thinned the crowds dining in the downtown entertainment district.

“Everyone is claiming 15 to 20 percent loss over last year,” said Brad Thacker, general manager of the Frog Bear & Wild Boar. The Blue Jackets play their first home game of the season Friday night, and Thacker can’t wait for hockey fans to come through his front door.
