Social media was abuzz with ecstatic fans, while Calgary businesses are enjoying a boost in traffic thanks to the event.

Olives Restaurant general manager Warren Flemming told the Calgary Herald that Tuesday at the establishment, which is located in the vicinity of the Saddledome, has been booked solid since the beginning of the month.

“I can’t take on anymore people between the hours of four and six o’clock. It’s jam-packed,” said Flemming of the establishment which seats approximately 150 but that normally only sees 40 to 50 patrons on a regular Tuesday.
