MILLBURY, Mass. — There was a 109-yard run back for a touchdown and a 30-minute black-out but the one place in Millbury where the Super Bowl party never stopped was the Elm Draught House in Millbury.

Owner of the Elm Jimmy Perry and his staff have been busy this year since the playoffs started and had about 200 people packed into the place for the Patriots’ last game. With the Patriots out of the Super Bowl, Perry wasn’t expecting the large crowd from two weeks ago to be present on Sunday.

“We were about filled to capacity,” Perry said. “We were really busy for the first two playoff games, but with the Patriots out of it, some people will lose interest and a lot of people just like to have their own parties and invite friends and relatives over.”

The patrons of the Elm were treated to some of the world famous popcorn, pizza, sandwiches and drinks that the pub is known for. The fans were treated to the pre-game festivities, the football game itself and the half-time show with Beyonce on the Elm’s 28 foot Hi-Def big screen.
