Assistant manager at Basha's Patrick Pole says preparations are well underway. "Super Bowl we expect a huge weekend. Its a busy here any ways and Super Bowl is a bigger holiday than most, its a national holiday...  it really is... and people come in and enjoy it and buy all their pre game and game time stuff" said Pole.

Along with food 8.1% of viewers plan to buy some type of team apparel for the game, 8.2% plan to buy a new television for the game.
