The San Francisco 49ers are headed to Miami for Super Bowl LIV after defeating the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and Studio209 was there to get in on the tailgating action.

This week’s episode, airing Thursday at, features fans of the team from all over the 209 area code, but Turlockers were well-represented among the crowd of 49er Faithful gathered at the stadium. In that group was Richard Curiel, who attended both the NFC Championship game Sunday and the 49ers’ Divisional Round last week.

“I just can’t believe we’re here. It’s awesome,” Curiel said, and shared what an NFL playoff atmosphere is like. “Everybody’s standing up, and you can just feel that roar loud and proud. You’ve got to pinch yourself because you can’t believe you’re at a playoff game…I can’t explain it.”

Some residents chose to stay in town and catch the game, like the large watch party that gathered at Jams@209 Sports Bar and Grill. For those who can’t make it to Miami on Super Bowl Sunday, there are plenty of options around town where fans can not only see Jimmy Garoppolo and company take on the Kansas City Chiefs, but score some meal deals as well.
