Best place by far is real sports, but it's already sold out and it's really expensive. I've been to every so called sports bar in this town to watch football for 4 years now and the ones mentioned are not very good. Most won't even play the sound or accommodate their guests to put on certain games. I know most of you hate chain bars but they put on the best show for the big game. St.Louis bar and grill yonge and davisville is by far the best, great staff, amazing management who cater to your needs. Also any jack astors specifically on front or Bloor/yonge. They play the sound and let you get as loud as you want. That's what true fans want, to enjoy the game like we're actually there, getting rowdy and cheering. I don't want to sit in a fake place like Williams landing sitting with people who are too cool for school pretending to watch the game and not giving a shit.

I recently was at The Goose and Firkin on Leslie north of York Mills. The place has been renovated and looks unreal. Bunch of TVs, pool tables and darts to keep you entertained when the game is not on. Great food and good selection of beers on draft. They are doing poutine at $5 and creemore and barking squirrel $5 a pint. Good deal. I most likely be there.
