Dec 10 2019, 9:43 am

It’s time to hit up some local watering holes, because the Toronto Raptors are playing Kawhi Leonard this Wednesday, when he makes his much-anticipated return to the city.

Kawhi and the Los Angeles Clippers will take on the Raps, with a special pre-game presentation taking place that’ll include Leonard receiving his championship ring.

Everyone knows that half the fun of watching sports is being in the company of other serious fans, so why not hit up one of your local spots for a pint and a burger?

These are the places to get your sport on during the evening of December 11.

No longer Real Sports, the iconic sports-bar-turned-restaurant at Scotiabank Theatre is now titled RS. And when you enter the re-vamped space, the first thing your eyes see is a reminder of the Toronto Raptors’ Championship win. If that doesn’t work up your appetite for good food and good spectating, we don’t know what else will. Enjoy the game on any of the space’s screens — including the 63-footer.

Address: 15 York Street
