Since this night comes only once every four years, some people are going all out to make watching the Olympic opening ceremony memorable.

"It's something so big that everybody should see," said Ilan Sitt, the general manager of Segafredo. "That's the truth, and there's a lot of people today."

It was the same thing around the corner at the Lucky Clover in Brickell.

"It was the history of the UK," Anne Miles said, watching the TV. "I love the way they did it but I'm dying to see it when I get home with the music."

Across the bridge at the Sunset Lounge in Miami Beach, guests were not only excited to see what was going to happen during the opening ceremony, but in the days to come.

"Definitely the basketball," one viewer said. "We got the dream team!"

Sunset Lounge bartender Ivan Barreto introduced NBC 6 to some specialty London Olympics-themed drinks, like the London Leblon and Lolo Lychee Martini.

A Sunrise Target stocked up on UK-themed clothes and accessories.

The Pub in Pembroke Gardens also created their own Olympic menu customers could order from while they watched the opening ceremony.
