Disappointing local news to report today, as a popular sports bar and grill has closed its doors for good.

There were rumors flying around for the last few days, that 1st and 10 Sports Bar in New Milford may be closing. Now we have confirmation that after 9 years, the popular location will be adding their name to a long list of local businesses that have shut down over the last year.

Sunday, the owners took to their Facebook page to alert their customers of the closing:

1st and 10 was a regular stop for all kinds of sports fans, and fans of wings as well. I've already seen social media posts from people asking where there's a place in the area for good wings since they heard that First and 10 may be closing.

Now that they have made it official, the sports bar becomes one of the first area restaurants to officially close down in 2019.

As soon as we get more information about the 1st and 10 closing we will update this story.

Here's a link on a story we did at the end of last year about all 24 of the Greater Danbury businesses that closed during 2018.
