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.

A man and woman robbed a jewelry store in Palo Alto at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon, escaping with several valuable wristwatches, according to police.
Police received a 911 call reporting the robbery at Gleim the Jeweler at the Stanford Shopping Center at 180 El Camino Real just before 4:30 p.m.
Officers responded immediately but could not locate the suspects.
Store employees told police the female suspect had entered the store and asked to see some wristwatches.
Once the employee opened the case, the male suspect entered the store with a gun and ordered the three employees to get down on to the ground.
The woman also pulled out a gun, went behind the counter and put around 25 high-end watches in her purse, before both suspects fled on foot.
No customers were present during the robbery and no one was injured.
Police have released a surveillance video image of the male suspect and hope to have an image of the female suspect by tomorrow.
The male suspect is described as a black male adult between 35 and 40 with a medium build and a beard. He wore a navy long-sleeved jumpsuit, a white elastic dust mask around his neck and a white ACE hardware cap with a red brim.
The female suspect was a black female adult around 30 years old with a thin build and shoulder-length wavy hair that appeared to be a wig. She wore a U.S. Postal Service vest over a white t-shirt and dark pants, and carried a large purse with a flower design.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at (650) 329-2413. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by email to email@example.com or texted or phoned in to (650) 383-8984.Wed, 22 Oct 2014 23:01:14 -0700
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) said Wednesday it established an Ebola hotline and call center to respond to inquiries related to the disease.
CDPH director and state health officer Dr. Ron Chapman said the hotline is one in a series of steps the agency has taken to respond to the epidemic.
"Our goal is to be available to eliminate the mystery of this disease and offer the facts to Californians as the situation evolves," Chapman said in a statement.
There have been three confirmed cases of Ebola in the United States and one fatality from the disease since the most recent outbreak was reported in Africa in May, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of Oct. 14, more than 4,500 deaths have been linked to the disease, the CDC said.
There are no confirmed cases of Ebola in California, representatives from CDPH said, and there are no suspected cases.
As part of the department's response, CDPH has worked with state, federal and local health officials to prepare for potential cases of Ebola in California and launched an informational website compiling information about the outbreak for medical professionals and the public.
The health agency developed an interim case report form for reporting suspected cases of Ebola to CDPH and distributed CDC guidance on specimen collection, transport, testing and submission for patients suspected of having the disease.
Last week, the agency posted interim medical waste management guidelines and held a teleconference with health care providers to discuss the latest news and guidance about handling suspected Ebola cases.
Health care professionals and members of the public can call the hotline at (855) 421-5921. The call center will be open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
