Good bars: Depends on whether you prefer a club-bar, or a pub-bar. My preference is O'Hanlons downtown. It's a pub. But if you go down Dewdney street between Albert street and Broad street you will see a big line of popular bars.
Eateries: Well, we do have franchises like Chili's, Applebee's, and Montana's.. But we also have a few places here that I think are family owned that are great. Chappy's on North Albert is a personal favourite (their pizza is great). If you want something fancy, I recommend the Keg, and Tony Roma's. The Keg has the best steak in the city, although pricey. Another fancy place is Moxie's in the East end. Pricey, again.
And if you would like to get any Rider gear, including jerseys, just go to the Rider Store. There is one in Northgate Mall on Albert Street, and there is another one at Mosaic Stadium outside the.. West entrance I believe. There could be others, but that is all I know of.
