St. Paul businesses anticipate big boost from MLS All-Star game

The MLS All-Star game is set to kick off Wednesday night at Allianz Field in St. Paul.

The match has brought in thousands of fans from across the country.

Some nearby businesses expected to cash in during the big game. Buffalo Wild Wings on Snelling Avenue spent weeks gearing up for the event.

“Usually Wednesday night is a slow night for us, but we’re not anticipating a slow night tonight,” Buffalo Wild Wings manager Tracy Hanson said. “We’ve added on some extra servers, a couple extra cooks. We’d rather have too many people than not enough. We’re looking forward to it.”
