"Everybody decided just whatever they wanted to bring, everything is Super Bowl themed... we have orange or blue or green " said Fix.
    
According to the National Retail Federation of the 181 million Americans who plan to watch Sundays big game more than 3 quarters or 77% will purchase  food and beverages. 39 million viewers plan to throw a party and 62 million plan to attend one.

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.

"Football is fun it wish the cardinals were in it but that's not an option but it's more about everybody getting together having a good time" said Fix.

Whether it's about football or food the one thing Fix says Super Bowl is about celebrating and making the most of the big day.
