Question to all Edmontonians

My birthday is coming soon (March 13th) and I was thinking about celebrating it on Saturday March 16th as it is GSP's fight night. What I am looking for is a bar with TVs (preferable big) that will show the game. I'd prefer bars on the West side but anything would pretty much work. I've tried Schanks on West but they don't accept reservations on UFC nights.
Any suggestions ?

Probably just disappointed we lost.

Sorry, I would help you but I have no experience here whatsoever.

Transit Hotel is always good for fights. They get some extras on the card there.

What kind of bar would call themselves "shanks"

May as well be called the "Stab me with random objects" club. Really appealing name.

Definitely sarcastic. Should have put up the symbol for that, sorry. Good point though, where the hell is the "I am drunk" symbol on Smilies?

Make sure and go to the Embassy Club. Little hole in the wall I went to about 25 years ago, and was the most amazing nightclub I've ever seen. Hope it's still there. Everything from singers, to cabaret, to comedians, to mimes to acrobats to magicians and everything else in between. Left at 3:00 a.m., and the lady master of ceremonies said the show was "just beginning". Wow.

That might be it. Make sure it's the right hole in the wall though.

It is appealing if you're the one doing the stabbing.

Beer hunters, Shanks on the west side is wicked sports bar. Hudson's tap house. Canadian Brewhouse on 97th. Even Boston Pizza's.

Sorry to derail a bit but one day.. one day I'm going to get the courage to go in there.

As someone who lived in Belvedere and drove by that place almost every day for most of my life. I loved the signs.

Gerbil races!.. I'm waiting for them to bring back the Gerbil races.. that's it.

It's a complete dump, they should tear the building down IMO. Attracts some real winners there as well as far as clientele goes.
