Lakewood: Super Bowl Sunday is always busy for restaurants and bars; it seems, especially those in the pizza business.
At Angelo's Pizza in Lakewood, crews will be in at 7 a.m. Sunday to start making fresh pizza dough.
Most of Angelo's business will be in delivery on game day.
Owner Tom Kess says, that could mean upwards of 1,000 pizzas in one day!
He says his team has preparation down to a science.
"We've been doing it a long time. We make our own dough from scratch. We're ready. It's just about being prepared," Kess says.
In Cleveland, Johnny Malloy's sports bar expects a packed house.
Manager Billy Zavesky will have the restaurant fully staffed. Customers will come in for the game on the big screen and stay to enjoy drink and food specials, and giveaways.
"It's fast-paced. Very energetic. The customers drive it," Zavesky says.
While Super Bowl Sunday is always a big day for festivities in Cleveland, Kess can only imagine what business would be like if the Browns were playing.
"It would probably be the biggest day ever, in the history of this place. It would be amazing if the Browns ever made it to the Super Bowl," Kess said.
While many will host their own Super Bowl watch parties at home with friends, countless people will pack local bars and restaurants for the atmosphere on Sunday.
