When the Heat play, people who work in sports bars tend to make more money.
"I am looking forward to the game tonight. I expect to do very well with tips and more people spending money on drinks and food. And if the Miami Heat win, I may even make more money," said Alyssa Long, a bartender.
"I hope the series goes to seven games. If it does, I will have more opportunities to make money on food and drink sales," said Antonio Falcone, a restaurant manager.
"We need our professional teams to be more successful. Then people party more and spend more money at bars and restaurants," said Barbara Hinton, a waitress.
