Wednesday's World Series Game 2 didn't have the ending that Giants fans wanted, but they said they still have much to celebrate as local businesses prepare for the team's homecoming for Game 3.
They said the good news is sthat there will be three games at AT&T Park: Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
At Momo's, a popular spot for fans, the mood was in sharp contrast to Tuesday night. There was disappointment, but it was tinged with expectations of greatness.
"It's going to be a good time to be at McCovey Cove. We're going to win on Sunday night," said one fan.
Others said having the Giants play at home will hopefully mean winning the World Series by this weekend.
At John's Grill near Union Square, the owner says the sizzle of steaks cooking will be louder and more constant come Friday.
He says he has reservations from Giants and visiting Royals fans.
"One asked if the beef here was as good as the midwest," said owner John Konstin.
Kostin says its better. The meat comes from Harris Ranch here in California. He is expecting truckloads of steaks, other food and alcohol Friday.
He anticipates business to double compared to a normal weekend.
"We're going to be real busy. We've added a lot of staff," said Konstin.
Along the waterfront, the Waterbar Restaurant has ordered five thousand extra oysters.
What has arrived already are bottles of special edition Giants Mums champagne. To sweeten a Giants victory, the pastry chef has created a pumpkin ice cream sandwich and a shortbread cookie.
Waterbar says it expects to be busy before and after the game, with hopes the Giants can win the World Series at home so it can cheer with the special edition Giants champagne.
