Super Bowl Parties in Rhinelander Submitted: 02/03/2013

RHINELANDER - The frigid temperatures might have made you think twice about stepping outside the comfort of your home to watch the Super Bowl this evening, but we talked to a couple of people who braved the cold for a little partying.

We visited Bucketheads Sports Bar and Grill in Rhinelander first.

Even though the Packers weren't playing, football fans were still enjoying the game.

"I've thrown parties in the past. If the packers were in it I would probably be throwing a party," said 49ers fan Andy Hildebrand.

"But it's a little cheaper to come to the bar instead of providing all your friends with food and drinks. So it's easier to come down the waterhole and hang out."

But at Cross Country Bar and Grill, the crowd was even more rowdy.

"I think the commercials are fun so far, but I think all the hype is kinda fun to watch," said Dave Laulainen.

"We like to get together and have a good time."

"I think it's hanging out with people. It's something that brings all different types of people together," Kara Fleming said.

"And I feel like I can see all of my friends when I do this. It's fun to be with a lot of people who you don't know who are all excited about something. That's a lot of fun."
