Local Restaurants Prep for the Super Bowl

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB)- Tomorrow’s game is going to be finger licking good.  But local restaurant business had to prepare for the fun in advance.

“Pretty much it’s going to be crazy; probably like a couple hundred people,” said chef Nerman Hodzic at Sophia’s Sports Bar.
People will be coming in large crowds to enjoy the game with friends, family and other fans.
“[We’ll] just go out somewhere where we can be in the atmosphere, have fun with it and have some drinks and go all out,” said Michael Jones, a customer at Sophia’s.

Orders for take-out are coming in already, keeping kitchens busy with preparations.

“We ordered a lot more drafts and a lot more wings because that’s everybody’s favorite here,” said Christine Kaimi, a bartender at Sohpia’s.
“We doubled staff across the board; food and bartenders,” said Bill Stetson, owner of Rumbleseat in Chicopee. “We probably will go through about 2500 wings tomorrow.
