The decorations are up downtown and so is the anticipation level.
"It's just a really exciting time in Indianapolis," said Jean Caster.
Caster said she can't wait for game day, but she and other football fans don't want to wait in long restaurant lines during the Super Bowl festivities.
Restaurants and the Super Bowl Host Committee are texting up a solution.
"It's going to be great, we'll just be able to send if we have a 30 minute wait. We're going to be texting all the time," said Mike Duganier, manager at The Colts Grille downtown.
The Super Bowl Host Committee is working to get restuarants on board with the "Text Times" program.
"We're reaching out to specifically downtown, Mass. Ave. and Fountain Square restaurants. The idea is the restaurants will text us the name of the restaurant and their wait time if it's 45 minutes or less," said Susie Townsend, Super Bowl Host Committee Vice President of Guest Welcome and Super Service
A "command center" of staff will receive the text and then sent out an alert to the Super Bowl Host Committee's street team. Those teams will be in groups of four, easily identifiable by a bright orange flag they will wear.
"So then they'll be able to say, maybe there's a long line at St. Elmo but if you walk a few blcoks this way there isn't as long of a line over at Alcupulco Joe's," said Townsend.
Duganier said he hopes it brings a steady stream of business into his restaurant and keeps fans from getting frustrated.
"It's another way for the city to show that we're being innovative and that we are a great city," he said.
