(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Even though things were relatively calm at Hi-Ho Bar & Grill in St. Joseph Saturday afternoon, employees were preparing for a packed weekend filled with football fans.

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will play the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead stadium for the AFC championship.

 Know before you go: Chiefs Game 

  • Kansas City Chiefs play the Oakland Raiders at 3:25 p.m. Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
  • Gates open at 1:30 p.m.
  • Parking lots open at 10:30 a.m.
  • Fans can catch Drum Ceremony Honoree Kansas State Football Coach and St. Joseph Native, Bill Snyder at Sunday's game.

Mark McKnight has worked at Hi-Ho for five years. He said the employees have been preparing for game-day crowds all week. McKnight also said the bar is stocked with plenty of product.

“Vendors have been in-and-out of the bar all week delivering extra orders of beer including River Bluff Brewing’s River Cream Ale,” he said.

When the Chiefs play at home the bar has to be ready for anything.

“I’ll be here early in the morning,” McKnight said. “It’s hit or miss. Sometimes fans head to Kansas City to tailgate and other game days the bar is bursting with fans.”

McKnight said even if Hi-Ho is packed, he guarantees fans will find a good spot to watch the game.

“We have over 20 TVs and most of them are big screen TVs,” he said. “We have several smart TVs so there's no place in here you won't see a TV."

Hi-Ho Bar & Grill opens Sunday at 11:00 a.m.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
