Turns out The Heather Hospitality Group (http://www.irishheather.com/) has two spots, both perfect for taking in the game with a few friends, a few beers and some great food.
If you’re looking for a more intimate space head to the Bitter Tasting Room (http://www.bittertastingroom.com/) – they’ve got the big screen on and space for up to 25 people. Handmade pretzels, a few brews and the game with your buddies – sound tempting? Check out the Bitter menu and take a look at some of the great bar snacks on offer. Their menu (http://www.bittertastingroom.com/bitter-menu.pdf) is built for beer – try a bottle of Wychwood Hobgoblin with their great scotch eggs. Or how about sharing a 16oz growler of Red Racer and a plate of the pork scratchings with a buddy?
If you love your whisk(e)y and you’re an ale aficionado, then be sure to try the Shebeen. With three screens every seat in the house is a good one and you won’t miss a minute of the action. Take the chance to try one of their whisk(e)y flights (pics and info here http://on.fb.me/IIY2Zf) as they have the largest selection of whisk(e)y in western Canada. All the food on the Irish Heather menu (http://www.irishheather.com/#menu) is available too, so you can enjoy one of their famous Guinness Pot Pies or Bangers and Mash as you watch the Canucks pave the road to the Stanley Cup.
Both the Shebeen and Bitter are great for small parties and they are happy to play host. Why worry about making sure you’ve got enough chairs, beer and food for you and your buddies? Head on down and let them take care of everything so you can sit back and enjoy the game.
Make Bitter or the Shebeen your playoff headquarters – they won’t disappoint.
