ESPN has created a new location-based entertainment concept called "ESPN Grill." Baltimore's Inner Harbor will be the site of the first ESPN Grill, a football field-size venue to include a restaurant, a TV viewing area and an arcade. The Baltimore site opens next summer. A second ESPN Grill, in Chicago's River North neighborhood, is set for the spring of 1999. ESPN Grills are to be managed by Walt Disney Co. unit Disney Regional Entertainment.
