Earlier today, I linked to a couple of stories that were critical of the idea of Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill charging $500 for fans to sit inside the establishment to watch Red Sox games. The whole idea is for patrons to pay the fee, then the customers get a $25 food credit and theoretically, if you go 20 times, you get your money back. But is it worth it to go to a bar to pay that fee to watch a game on TV?
Well, leave it to CNBC’s Darren Rovell to explore the possibilities and to see whether an individual should pay the price. And we have this video of Darren explaining the worth to CNBC anchor Erin Burnett.
Always great to have Darren who’s much smarter than I explain this. As he says in the report, the program is more geared towards businesses rather than individual customers and it would be worth for corporations to pay the price and give the tickets to their employees or clients. We’ll see if the season ticket program spreads to other establishments.
