Local bars prep for big game celebrations 

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – While watch-parties at home are typically the most popular big-game viewing option, millions still make the decision to head out to local sports bars and pubs to watch the action unfold.

This year, Madison Oyster Bar opened their doors for a rare Sunday workday, offering specialty menu items like chicken wings to help bring in fans.

“Yeah, so we’re normally not open on Sundays, but I think everybody wanted us to stay open so here we are." said Madison Oyster Bar co-owner, Rosa Federico. "We haven’t been open for the super bowl in a very long time, but depending how it goes tonight, something we may do annually.”

Taphouse on the Edge, just outside of Notre Dame's campus, went big for the celebrations, offering chicken wings specials and party deals for fans looking to take in the game in a fun, open atmosphere.

"The normal business hours don't apply, we're just trying to hang out until the end!" said General Manager, Annamarie Cartwright.

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Fransisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58, 25-22.
