Stopped for drinks and ordered guacamole. Carlos made the guacamole right at our table! Lots of TVs with a variety of sports. If you’re missingTSN this is your place. Curling was on when we were there and felt like we were back in Canada!

I agree with Mike J. The staff at the general will do everything they can to accommodate you. You may be able to contact them a head of time and they can try to get the fight for you.
