Gary Java and Tommie Frazier were on hand at DJ's Dugout in downtown Omaha to hand out prizes at the Nighthawk party. But they'll have to hurry. The Nighthawks plan is to draw a name every 15 minutes before the start of the game.
Joel Fitzpatrick says, "We don't want to take away from the game, some people are here for football, some people are here for commercials so we're going to try and get as much done as we can."
The chef at the Kroc Center is ready to put out the fruit and vegetable trays, the pizza, chili, hot dogs will follow shortly. In the mean time Marcus Sandlin and a few others are passing the time before the food arrives and the football starts.
Marcus Sandlin says, "People are going to come and watch the game on the big screen here at the Kroc Center and there are drinks and stuff."
Marcus hopes his name is pulled in the prize drawing so he can get one of the Nighthawk t-shirts. Marcus doesn't have one yet.
Mike Botos and his family chose to watch the Super Bowl at a movie theater. The first time Botos watched the Holiday Bowl at Aksarben Cinema and was sold.
He gets the bar atmosphere without the bar problems.
Mike Botos says, "You can actually watch the game here at a bar you can't it's too noisy. There is just too much talking I guess."
At the theater Botos can have a beer, kick back and watch the game on a 60' wide screen.
