Evening with Friends, a Milligan restaurant where part of
the festivities for the Pepsi-Cola event are slated to take
place today as part of a Super Bowl XLVIII commercial in

MILLIGAN — Pepsi will hit the spot here this morning in what a marketing firm has determined is the ideal geographical center of the U.S. to film a commercial for the Super Bowl.

The small town of about 285 people was selected to serve as host for the filming of what could be television commercials, online videos or both for the soda drink company in anticipation of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Estimates of as many as 5,000 people could flock to Milligan for today's festivities, or just out of curiosity, even though temperatures are expected to peak in the mid-30s.
