Aggie Game Day is Big Business for Northgate District

COLLEGE STATION- With the Aggies off the practice field, local businesses are hoping to cash in on fans watching the first game of the season home here at home.

Business in the Northgate District is back in full swing. Texas A&M students and fans at the Foundation Lounge watched the big game, taking in all the food, beverages and fun they can. General Manager Chris Wright hopes the Aggies success on the field so far will continue to translate into big bucks all season long.

Even on away games Wright says he tries to maintain the game day experience by offering specials that keep die hard fans coming back.
"We like to stay true to the customer and what they bring, so we honor our specials even when there's an Aggie football game."

Managers at Duddley's Draw say getting fans here on any game day at home or on an away game is a touchdown every time, thanks to their 37 year reputation with the locals. General Manager Morgan Corkran says, "A lot of people who can't leave, they're gonna look for somewhere to go and they know we have food, our prices are good and our staff is great. The fact that the stadium will have 20 thousand more people. We're gonna be even more crazier and busier than we were before."

Managers say they expect to see more business than every before due to the renovated Kyle Field and a number of new housing and business developments over the last year.
