Bars, restaurants on Water St. prepare for Bucks fans to watch game six

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58)-- The Deer District isn't the only place fans will flock to for game six of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

Water Street is preparing for people to watch the Bucks take on the Atlanta Hawks.

"We're definitely prepared for a big crowd," Aija Johnson of Pourman's said. "We have enough staff that are ready to cheer and meet with our guests as needed."

Fans looking for a place to watch the game that's not as packed as the Deer District can head to Water Street, where TV's are turned to the game and drink specials are ready to be poured.

Fans are arriving a couple of hours early to get good parking spots and grab a food before the game starts at 7:30 p.m.

"It's awesome," Tim Erdman said. "I mean, seeing the Deer District every night even when the Bucks are down in Atlanta, you can see the energy just seeing the crowds down here."

Milwaukee Police will be visible on Saturday night after shootings and fights broke out following past Bucks watch parties.
