Tiger loss still a win in Capital City
Monday, September 10, 2012
It rained on Jefferson City’s first SEC rally on Friday, and Mizzou lost its SEC opener on Saturday. But the rally and game were win-win situations for the Capital City’s economy.
The city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) promoted the city to Georgia fans both behind the scenes and by holding the rally. Some local hotels and restaurants did a booming business from fans of both teams.
“Oh, heck yeah. We got stomped,” said Shelley Crocker, Country Kitchen’s general manager. “We’ll take it any time we can get it.”
