The Super Bowl is so much more than a football game it has become tantamount to a national holiday.

And an array of businesses – some obvious, others more obscure – reap benefits from the most watched sporting event in America.

This year, the defending champion Seattle Seahawks play the three-time title-holders the New England Patriots Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz. Whoever takes the game, the real winners will be the many businesses that cash in on America’s unquenchable thirst for football.

Super Bowl Sunday “is one of the better days we can count on during the year,” said Jay Baisley, owner of the Channingville Deli on the border of Poughkeepsie and Wappinger.

“We are busy all day long,” said William Abela, owner of CJ’s Pizza in Rhinebeck.

For many retailers, Super Bowl means super business.

'Spirit of Beacon' Pete Seeger left this world on January 27, 2014, at the age of 94. A year later memories of his life and music are resounding throughout the Hudson Valley.

"Pete Seeger's local community in Beacon and the Hudson River Valley as well as the entire world community lost an icon of decency, courage, humanity," said longtime friend Connie Hogarth. "Also through his spirit of change captured through music. But his work, spirit and vision, so inspirational for young and old, live on. Forever."

Seeger was predeceased by Toshi, his wife of almost 70 years, on July 9, 2013. The Seegers, who dwelled for decades on Mount Beacon, in Dutchess Junction, were named Honorary Beaconites by the City of Beacon in 2008. The Beacon City School District named the Beacon High School Theatre after them, in early 2013.
