Millions of fans, in front of the television today were taking in the sights and sounds of the Super Bowl. And many went to local sports bars to enjoy the biggest sports event of the year.
As kickoff approaches, the tables quickly fill at Overtime Sports Grill and Bar. Lisa Munk is a manager and says Overtime has several more workers on hand to keep up with the big demand of the big game.
"They get hyped just as much as our customers do getting ready for the game. We'll get a good turnout for customers. They'll get involved in the giveaways and the fun contests just like everybody else," Munk said.
Kami Spring is normally a 49ers fan, but she's wearing orange today with her family. She likes coming out to watch the Super Bowl because of the atmosphere she wouldn't get at home.
"You're not at home just sitting there by yourself. Here you can always have a good laugh and you can eat really good food and hang out," Kami said.
Her mom has a different reason for coming out.
"I don't have to clean," Dori Spring said.
For the people enjoying a pile of nachos or a cold beer, there is something for everyone with their eyes glued to the screen.
"I like the commercials and I like football. Halftime is hit and miss," Dori said.
"Our staff gets just involved with those commercials. Everybody will stop what they're doing and watch," Munk said.
Munk says people come out to enjoy the Super Bowl because even though fans are away from their living rooms, they still get that at-home feel.
"It's like a big family, because everybody knows everybody so it's like getting together at home. All the regulars will come in and if you're not family we'll make you feel like family," Munk said.
