A good sports bar around Yonge and Eglinton...

to watch the Raptors game. Tonight's game is on TSN2, which Rogers #@)(%&!) doesn't have.
I know some bars in downtown, but I've just moved to Yonge and Eglinton and except for the Duke of York, am not aware of any other bars, let alone sports bars.

* Doesn't have to be exactly around Yonge and Eglinton btw. Anything between bloor, bathurst, Yorkmills, and Bayview will do. *

      If you want good food to go along with the Raptors game that *&^&*^$$%^&&ing Rogers does not have, try the Rose and Crown. They just re-opened and the menu has something for everyone. Go Raptors!

    2. Cool, thanks :)
      I'll try the Rose and Crown. I think I've noticed it a million times, but I always thought it's a football (yes it's called football, not soccer :P ) bar with a heavy Man U following, if it's the bar that I think it is.

        Hope the R&C came through for yoy. If you're ever stuck, Scallywags at Yonge & St Clair seems to every kind of game going. Here's their TV schedule.-

        The foods okay, not great, but not bad.

          I believe you are thinking of the Main Event which is across the street from the Rose and Crown. The Rose is on the east side of Yonge. No idea if they actually have the game on, though.
