Five things to do on REDBLACKS game day at Lansdowne

Fuel up before heading inside and taking your seats by visiting Jack Astor’s before the game. From 10-11 a.m. the restaurant will be serving all-you-can-eat chili for $7. The restaurant will also be hosting a tailgate party starting at 10 a.m., which will feature a beer tub and Caesar station (as of 11 a.m.). There will be prizes, including one pair of tickets to the game.

Cheap cuts
Look your best for the big game by stopping in at Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop. All of their services are $5 off on Sunday so pop in for a cut, trim or shave and save a few bucks. No appointment needed, just pop in and, if there’s a couple people ahead of you, grab a pop and head upstairs to the lounge, which features Flat screen TVs, an iPad bar, arcade games and more. 

If you haven’t checked out the new merchandise shop – located next to the box office – and picked up your new REDBLACKS gear, now’s the time to do it and with temperatures starting to feel more like winter, be sure to check out the toques, scarves, hoodies and – new this year – one-zies to keep warm. On game day, all adidas gear will be 20% too, or click here to shop online.

Eat, drink and be merry
Patio season may be in the books, but the pre and post-game celebrations at the restaurants and bars around Lansdowne aren’t going anywhere. Head over for a pre-game pint and dinner at Craft Beer Market or some post-game fun at Local Public Eatery or JOEY Lansdowne. Jack Astor’s, Industria Brasserie, SEN Asian Cuisine, Crust & Crate Public House and Milestones are always popular destinations. Looking for a healthy bite and a quick coffee? Aroma Espresso Bar has you covered. Click here to check out all of Lansdowne’s dining options.

Transition to hockey
With Sunday marking the final REDBLACKS home game of the season, hockey will continue on at TD Place long after the football field is buried in several feet of snow. The Ottawa 67’s are currently riding a four-game winning streak and will return home to play Ottawa Senators first-round pick Logan Brown and his Windsor Spitfires on November 25. While you’re at Lansdowne on Sunday, pop by the box office and pick up your tickets. Click here to view the 67’s complete home schedule.
