Hello All - A few questions:
I'm a long-time TiCats fan in the US (currently living in Atlanta) and will be traveling through Hamilton next week for the first time in a few years.
Are there any good places anyone could recommend to buy team souvenirs this time of year (t-shirts, photos, pennants- the usual)? Ideally I'd like to get things as inexpensively as possible; the "official" team stores tend to be pretty pricey.
Are there any taverns or bars/clubs that cater to the Tiger-Cats fans or that are "themed" to CFL football or Hamilton football? I prefer the unfancy, neighborhood kind of place- a normal corner bar where people are casual and friendly and could talk intelligently about the team. (My idea, of course, is to learn from the patrons; it's REALLY difficult to follow the TiCats or the CFL in Georgia!)
Any other things you could recommend I might do related to the team? (tour Ivor Wynne, visit team offices, see a local museum with team-related displays, etc).
Thanks in advance for your ideas and input. And thanks for acting as travel consultants!
