Locals prepare for Super Bowl

GREENSBURG – From 90-inch screens to drink specials and cupcakes in Broncos and Seahawks colors, some local businesses are dishing up something special for Super Bowl Sunday.

Coverage of the game between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Fox.

Buffalo Wings & Rings, at 905 W. Ann Bldv., will show the game on three 90-inch screens and 15 TVs, said Nici Washan, a server, bartender and host.

The eatery, which will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., also will offer 59 cent wings all day and two special drinks, the Bucking Bronco and the Soaring Seahawk. Washan said prices had not yet been set and mixologists are still working on finalizing the ingredients.

The Tiki Bar & Grill, at 107-109 N. Broadway, also will have a Super Bowl party, said co-owner Debbie Caperoon. The bar will be open from 11 a.m. until the last patron leaves, she said.

Her husband, Lou Caperoon, co-owner, said the eatery will offer touchdown drink specials and food specials, though details were still being determined.

The Tiki Bar also will offer patrons some free snacks, such as chips and cheese dip. All 10 TV sets will be showing the big game.

The Lincoln Street Grill, at 1207 N. Lincoln St., will expand its usual Sunday chicken buffet with cupcakes in Bronco and Seahawk colors, said owner Tracy Volz.

The Grill also will close earlier than usual, however, at 3 p.m. rather than 8 p.m., because Volz said that while the restaurant usually gets a good crowd after church, she expects guests to leave before the game begins.
