If you’ve ever been to a Canucks game, it’s almost always the golden question – where do you eat and drink before the game?

Pre-game grub is important, it’s what fuels you to be able to laugh, cheer, and cry with your team. More importantly, it warms up you system for all the churros, chicken fingers, and hotdogs you’re going to down once you’ve stepped in Rogers Arena.

This is important Vancouver, because everybody knows you can’t go to a Canucks game sober hangry.
