Local Bars, Fans Excited for Pats Game

pats fansAMHERST, Mass (WGGB) — Local bars and restaurants have spent the better part of the weekend preparing for tonight’s big game.

The Hanger Pub and Grill in Amherst has called in extra staff because they’re expecting a packed house and a lot of take out orders.

And fans across New England — and the country for that matter — are taking every step necessary to ensure tonight’s viewing experience is perfect.

In fact, we found one fan who drove all the way up from Virginia to watch the game.

“Well I was born in Massachusetts and I moved down South and there aren’t too many Patriots fans down there, so it’s good to come up here and see everybody wearing the memorabilia and everything like that,” says Brandon Bergeron of Virginia.

Brandon says another trip up north is in the works for Superbowl Sunday, if  the pats take home the win tonight
