Columbia's bars and restaurants expect big turn out

The big game is underway.

The tigers take on Iowa in the Insight Bowl.

But before the game began we caught up with some managers of bars and restaurants before it started.

Harpo's is one of many places in Columbia that are having a watch party for the big game.

They TMre expecting hundreds of people to come out and enjoy some football and their specials.

"We have half off all out burgers all night. We have awesome drink specials and when Mizzou scores you score; you get half off appetizers after each touchdown, Harpo TMs bartender Kelsey Mueller said.

Harpo's isn't the only place having a watch party, so is the Blue Note.

The Blue Note TMs box office manager said they are giving out free food and some prizes during the Insight Bowl.

"It TMs free to get in, we got free food from Sub Shop coming in at ten o'clock, and Miller Lite is giving away some cool prizes."

All Mizzou fans are hoping for the biggest prize of all, a tiger victory!

The game kicked off at 9 p.m. and most all restaurants and bars in Columbia are staying open until it ends.
