Gov. Ned Lamont has extended the businesses curfew from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. this Super Bowl Sunday.
The owner of Bradford's Grill and Tavern in Stamford, Tony Desjardin says he's happy he can legally let people watch the entire game Sunday, but it won't bring in business like in the past.
Desjardin says it's impossible to keep people 6 feet apart and turn a good profit, even on Super Bowl Sunday.
This is the first time since 2016 people won't be shoulder to shoulder inside the Blind Rhino cheering for their favorite team Sunday, but the owner says the extra hour the governor is allowing them to do business in Sunday makes all the difference.
Matt Bacco says there will be no wing eating competition or trivia this year. They are keeping it simple and because of social distancing requirements, Super Bowl Sunday will look like any other day.
Both Bacco and Desjardin say they are more optimistic now seeing an extra hour of business but hope they will be allowed to stay open even later soon.
Lamont made it clear that for this weekend, one hour was as much as he was willing to budge.
New York's Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he will not be extending the curfew past 10 p.m. for the big game.
