MEDFORD, Ore -- It's game time inside of Chadwick's Pub and Sports Bar. It's hosts a party every year for the big game.
"We've been getting calls the past month seeing what we are doing." said Notja Busnardo. She is the General Manager at Chadwick's. "We are just really excited that San Francisco is playing. They are so close to home and everybody is just getting excited about it."
Besides decorating with balloons and making special drinks for the night. The team is also preparing for the end of the night; when everyone starts heading home. "My servers, even in the grill, we are all very educated on how many drinks we can serve a guest." said Busnardo.
"Shortly after the Super Bowl is over we will start patrolling the streets for anyone that is impaired." said Corporal Erica Doran. She is with the Medford Police. There aren't any check points in Medford. Officers look for traffic violations as a signal that someone could be drunk. "We can do traffic stop and then kind of assess the driver once we make contact at the door."
Corporal Doran says there is a short window of time that people start heading home. "It's literally going to be trial and error on which cars you've stopped that may have someone that's driving impaired or not." said Corporal Doran.
"We work very closely with the taxi services, Uber, Lyft and then we are a hotel. If you get too intoxicated we can take you to a room." said Busnardo. Since Chadwick's is attached to the Rogue Regency Inn some people end up staying the night at the hotel. "So that's kind of a benefit that we have that other establishments don't."
