Businesses here are getting geared up for expected crazy crowds of customers that can't travel to Texas. Some, of course, sports bars. Workers are betting business will be booming come Saturday morning.
There are many of us who can't go to Frisco for the big Bison game. But that doesn't mean we won't be watching. Bars are taking full advantage of this, even adding staff and ordering special brew.
Here's how one popular place is preparing. Chub's Pub is known for catering to Bison fans, most regulars. After all, it's only a couple blocks from campus. Workers are hanging signs, showing off new specials and their bison pride.
Chub's will have a chili-feed and serve green beer that day. Yes, 75 cent green taps, starting at 8 AM. The bar holds 185 people and has been averaging about 100 for past games. It's hoping to capitalize on the championship.
Jason Ramstad – Chub’s Pub General Manager: “With the holiday break, with the kids being gone and people traveling, but you know normally we've been pretty good, over the playoff system and I think we've had a pretty good crowd through those games and I think we expect the same kind of crowd. Everybody's going to have a real positive buzz from this game on Saturday.”
The first 100 bison fans getting to Chub's before the big matchup will get these Bison shirts. Every time the Bison score, there will be even other offers. Clearly this game a real reason to celebrate, even if you are stuck watching the game on TV.
