BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Many Western New Yorkers made the trip to Houston, but for the majority of fans are staying local. 716 Food and Sport said its been working on a special fan experience for weeks.

"We've been really planning this weekend probably since about midnight after the Bills clinched," said 716 General Manager Jon Robare.

Robare said 716 will feature Bud Light products, live music, and have Bills alumni stop by. There will also be prizes, raffles, and signed merchandise to give away. The main attraction is the 38 foot big screen TV.

Resurgence Brewing Company on Chicago Street is in its first football season, but is already getting a taste of the playoffs.

"The staff and crew is ready to go they're just as excited as the guests coming in," said Operations Manager Ben Kestner.

The brewery said it has nine televisions and a projector.

"There's a $20 ticket and that gets you access to the food station upstairs, if you don't want to pay for that $20 ticket you can always order off the regular menu today," Kestner said.

716 and Resurgence don't have free food, but there are places that do.
