LOL, it's a bar.

I'll judge it on the service, the ambience and the beer list.

Life's too short to give up on a great bar because of who owns it.

Now, if it sucks, and is overpriced, and some here have said that, obviously I'll let my wallet go elsewhere.

Besides, it's not as if MLSE's economic advantage has translated to the ice.

Ive traveled to quite a few arena's for Ottawa games and I tend to find a lot of large cookie cutter sports bars right next to the arena to not be that good. If you do some internet or even an app like yelp research, you can find some cool bars close by that a lot of the "local" fans go to, you meet some cool people and usually have a good time.
