NEW ORLEANS -- It's been a busy week for local bars. After a three day non-stop party at places like the Rusty Nail, it's time to break down the tent and get ready for Saints postseason game.
Across town at Walk On's bar, the kegs are stocked and Saints fans are already weighing in on a crucial game.
“I hope they win because I live here, but I think it is going to be ruthless," Zack Lancione said. "From head to toe they are going to go at it."
Sean Franklin said, “I expect to see a good game in the snow. It should be a challenge for the Saints, but it will be a great game."
First was the New Year's celebration, then the Sugar Bowl Fan Fest, and lastly the big game.
With the Saints season hanging on by a thread, some fans are on edge knowing the team will be playing against its biggest rival: The weather.
"I don't know. I think they are going to struggle with it, but Drew Brees is a leader. He will be alright," Lancione said.
Joe Canizaro said, “I’m looking for a win tomorrow. It is put up or go home tomorrow. It is going to be tough. We have not played well on the road this year. We don't do well in the cold, but we do well in the big games."
At Tracey's Bar on Magazine Street, the kitchen and kegs are on full tap in anticipation for a busy Saturday night.
According to the beer institute, the US will consume 50 billion pints by the end of the year. It peaks during large sporting events.
This group says it all boils down to a win to keep the Saints season alive.
"I'm hoping we can pull it off and go on to the next week and keep going until we have a repeat of the 2010 season."
