Biz Buzz for Sept. 18, 2022 | Business | gjsentinel.com – The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel
Game Day Sports Bar and Grill at 3210 Interstate-70 Business Loop in Clifton has reopened after being closed for much of this year to fix a maintenance issue.
General Manager Shawna Fitzgerald told The Daily Sentinel that, shortly after Game Day Sports Bar and Grill moved into the building in late 2021, a plumbing issue on Super Bowl Sunday forced the establishment to shut down for repairs.
In August, Game Day Sports Bar and Grill finally reopened its doors to the public. Game Day has stadium seating, six pool tables, 36 flat-screen televisions, dartboards, a full kitchen and the capability to stream all televised fights, such as UFC fights. The bar and grill also features a full-service menu, including brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
“We are family here at Game Day,” Fitzgerald said. “Our customers who are starting to slowly return. We are so blessed to have them, all of them! We are entirely grateful to them.”
n Antonelli’s Advanced Automotive gave a Ford Escape to a single mother of three named Jaci to conclude its annual Wheels to Prosper Giveaway.
Each year, Antonelli’s seeks nominations from the community to whom should receive a car based on that person’s need for a vehicle or if they deserve a new vehicle. Jaci was selected because her vehicle was recently rear-ended, and she’s been borrowing a car to get to work and to take her kids to school.
The Ford Escape has a new transmission and other parts and includes free oil changes for the next two years.
Bookcliff Auto Parts donated some components needed to have the Ford Escape running like new, and MBC Grand Broadcasting promoted and sponsored the giveaway.

It was so great to award $40,000 to 10 different and very deserving organizations!”
