I kid...this city is absolutely wonderful!
Glad you like Quebec!
You can go to La Cage aux Sports, there is one at Place Laurier in Ste Foy. Its worth it if you've never been at that restaurant chain. Otherwise theres l'Archibald which I definitely recommand, they have great beer and good food but are located in Beauport or Duplessis HWY (near the airport). Most if not all restaurants with televisions are going to show the games, people here either love or hate the Habs so the games always bring up lots of mixed emotions
About Bruins fans I'd say Quebec's hockey fanbase is divided as such :
-There are some hardcore Habs fans (we rock
-A lot of bandwagon post-nordiques Habs fans (kids that want to go against their parents and some newcomers to the city)
-Annoying bandwagon anti-Habs fans. These guys are annoying and pick the team that annoys the Habs most or wins. Lots of them cheered for the Pens(before we kicked their *****) or now with the Bruins (after they stopped losing every single games vs the Habs.). Their ''loyalty'' is non-existant and they are the scum of the earth mostly.
-Pure hockey fans that cheer for incredibly random teams. These guys are usually awesome and usually have good hockey knowledge. They don't always hate the Habs, too!
-Hardcore nordiques fans that can't watch hockey if its not nordique hockey. Since no Nordique games have been played in nearly two decades they have no idea whats going on and are generally old farts.
