ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — A rainy cool Monday night game in Orchard Park with the Buffalo Bills taking on the Super-Bowl-champion Kansas City Chiefs.

In the parking lots outside of Bills Stadium there were only Erie County Sheriff squad cars. With New York State Covid-19 regulations trying to stop the spread of the virus, the parking lot of Prohibition was about as close to the game as you can get.

Seats at this restaurant on game day were by reservation. For most, those aren't the seats fans wanted, especially when the Bills are playing a quarter of a mile away.

“We would be in the hammer lot tailgating, right now,” said Joanie Kalstek.

Kalstek and her husband really miss the game. They've had season tickets for over 35 years.

“We miss it. We miss it a lot,” they said while sitting at table at Prohibition.

If New York State does allow fans this year, the Kalsteks would be first on the list to get tickets, since they are season ticket holders. Their family all has seats together.

“We're together all the time anyways. So, I don’t think that we would cause any problem with anything,” added Kalstek.

Despite the loss, the Bills are still atop the division. And no matter where they have to do it, Bills Mafia will be cheering them on.
