There are plenty of local businesses ready to accommodate Alabama fans who couldn't make it to the BCS National Championship.
Billy's Bar and Grill in Mountain Brook plans to throw a Miami-themed viewing party. They will have everything from decorations to door prizes.
Other places like Avondale Brewing Company and Workplay Theater are setting up big projection screens to show the game.
If you are looking for more of a family friendly environment, check out Carmike Cinemas at the Summit. They plan to show the game in one of their theaters.
Even though the viewing will be free, you still have to get an armband for admission.
All the owners and managers we spoke with say they are ready for larger than normal turnouts
"It's a big deal for Alabama. I mean, it's a really good thing for the state, we just wanted to make it special and people will come here and watch the game, but I wanted to make it a little bit more exciting," said Leigh Ann Callaway with Billy's Bar and Grill.
"It's a great time for Alabama. We've got potentially four years in a row should be proud of. The sec should be proud of our teams here in Alabama. Everybody come out regardless of your affiliation," said Craig Shaw with Avondale Brewing Company.
Business owners remind fans to arrive early to get a good seat. They recommend showing up between 5-5:30 for the 7:30 kick off.
