ESPN Zone Scheduled to Close

The beloved and popular sports bar and restaurant, the ESPN Zone, owned by Walt Disney Co., has scheduled to close down its Washington, Baltimore, Chicago, Las Vegas and New York locations on Wednesday, June 16 the Washington Post {reported](http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/09/AR2010060906292.html). Due to the poor economy, Disney felt that the restaurants were not generating enough revenue to justify their existence because the sports fan favorite is expensive to maintain.

The Denver and Atlanta closed last year, leaving only two restaurants, one in Anaheim, CA and one in Los Angeles, both which will be owned and run by companies other than Disney. Anyone that has scheduled and paid for an event taking place at the ESPN Zone after June 16 will be reimbursed.
