Local restaurants preparing for the Super Bowl

With Super Bowl 58 set to kick off on Sunday, some local restaurants are getting ready for the lively crowds.

Jay Taylor, the co-owner of Morty’s Pub on King St. in Waterloo, said they plan on having a lively crowd. Traditionally, he notes Super Bowl Sunday is their biggest takeout day of the year.

‘We do around 1000 pounds, half a ton, of chicken wings, plus around 300 pounds of fresh cut fries,” said Taylor.

Morty’s Pub has been hosting guests for the Super Bowl since opening 43 years ago. As of Thursday, he said about 80 per cent of the reservations have been booked.

Shannon Slusher, the bar manager at Ethel’s Lounge just down the street said they normally have a private party for the big game, but starting last year they started having giveaways.

“It’s fun, it’s a great way to sit there and have a bunch of beers with friends and see if your bets are going to come in,” said Slusher.

Katrina, the manager at Piper’s Arms Pub in Uptown Waterloo said they have a full house for the game and also plan to have giveaways. She notes as of Thursday that most reservations are booked up but are taking walk-ins on Sunday.

“It’s a good party in here,” said Katrina. “We have many TVs all around and in every booth, so there isn’t a part in the restaurant where you won’t be able to see or hear the game.”

You can catch the game on CityNews 570 with the pre-game beginning at 5 p.m. Kickoff begins at 6:30 p.m.
