KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WTVF)  — It's a big weekend for the two-tone blue as they head to Kansas City for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs.

Titans fans making the trek west can enjoy so much around K.C. outside of the football experience. Since the city has the most barbecue restaurants per capita – in the entire country – we played tourists yesterday to experience the different flavors of the city.

Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque has been in business since 1930 and many locals, who have a lot to choose from, say it’s a favorite. The restaurant has even played host to stars like Sally Field and President Barack Obama – they even let a few Titans fans in.

Boulevard Brewing Company is another favorite spot for locals, not just on game day. The brewery sits in the center of K.C.’s urban Core.

Kansas City police say they’re expecting 77,000 fans on Sunday. Extra patrol units will be out to handle anything that comes up. They're pushing for people to have designated drivers and more importantly, to make that decision before going to the game.

If you're packing up to head this way, remember that you can't bring bags into the stadium, per usual NFL rules. You can have a clear bag or a regular bag as long, as it's no bigger than the size of your hand.

There is a special place for Titans fans to get pumped up at Arrowhead Stadium. The Two-Tone Blue Takeover tailgate is from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Lot C. Parking at the stadium costs $50.

One thing Titans fans also need to prepare for – the volume. Arrowhead Stadium currently holds the world record for loudest stadium. Fans reached 142.2 decibels in September 2014 after defeating the New England Patriots during Monday Night Football. For perspective, that's louder than a jet engine taking off on an aircraft carrier deck.
