YONKERS - Local businesses in Westchester are hoping to cash in on the Super Bowl.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says tourists will generate an estimated $280 to $300 million in economic activity for the state and that non-game day events will pump another $14 million into local and state revenues.

The Candlelight Inn Bar and Restaurant in Scarsdale says on Super Bowl Sunday alone they will sell 12,000 pounds of chicken wings. Owners say that there will be 32 employees working on Sunday to try to keep up with the demand.

While many residents will picking up food for the big game, some say the best way to enjoy the Super Bowl is with a home-cooked meal.

The ShopRite in Yonkers was busy with people who say it's cheaper, easier and more fun to cook at home.

"I'm tired of the loud parties, and I'm getting to the stage in life where I don't want to hear everyone yelling and screaming. I used to do that, but I have a nice home and I'd like to stay home," said David Fiveson, of Scarsdale.

Gov. Cuomo says that, in addition to increased revenue, the Super Bowl is estimated to generate more than 2,400 full-time jobs, which will translate into millions of dollars in tax revenue for the state.
