Where will you be for Sunday’s Super Bowl Game? They're expecting a big crowd in downtown Bend.
It’s supposed to be the biggest party of the year - or is it?
Shane Caito, Manager of Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill says actually St. Patrick's Day is much bigger.
But, he says, the Super Bowl is second, and most people come for the fun of being with other fans. "For the most part, it's pretty calm. We don't allow people to get too rowdy. As long as people are being friendly and positive; people are allowed to cheer, as long as it's a positive cheer. If we get somebody that starts negative cheering like just cheering against the other team out loud to try to incite people, we nip it in the bud right off the bat."
Caito says there's already been lots of talk in the bar about the upcoming game; and it looks like there's lots of support for San Francisco. “It’s mostly 49’er fans; but we did have a big group of Ravens fans in yesterday that were pretty excited about the game. All 10 of them were from Baltimore.”
Caito says it's also a big day for chicken wings, nachos, breakfast all day and of course - beer.
He says actually St. Patrick's Day has much bigger crowds; but they are expecting more families this Sunday.
He warns that the place fills up quickly and advises you to get to your viewing location at least an hour before kick off at 3:30 p.m.
