Among the more desperate emails I receive are those from readers who are looking for a bar – any bar – to watch NHL games. Last year, it looked like Cafe St. Laurent would show them, but plans fell through, as they also did at The Rickshaw. In fact, the only place I caught a few games was at Paddy O’Shea’s during last year’s playoffs.
Good news: It turns out the Goose and Duck is not only showing Hockey Night in Canada, which is broadcast in the Great White North on Saturdays and thus means we can watch it while enjoying breakfast on Sunday, but also has a 24-hour TSN feed with highlights available daily. The signal is delivered via slingbox, and the quality is not perfect, but a few early morning beers should correct your vision.
The Goose and Duck also told me that they are extending the half-price deal for their new comedy and magic club to students, teachers, and support staff from international schools, from Monday to Thursday. The deal includes dinner and the show.
