We pregamed at the Phoenix for the Thursday game and the staff was great and the food and drink specials were excellent.
Since we can't tailgate together the Phoenix offers a great place to gather for a pregame bite and brew.
I had such a great time enjoying pregaming before Thursday's game I sent them a thank you email. Here's the part of the email I received from the Phoenix's manager explaining the deals for the August 16th game.
I strongly recommend that you make reservations, this will ensure they have enough staff on to serve everyone excellently.
[b]"We are planning to open at noon for the game on August 16. We are going to run a smaller version of our regular menu with wings, nachos, burgers and $6.95 baskets of poutine. We are also going to offer $5 pints of Steam Whistle.
I am happy to take reservations in advance to help us plan for staffing. Our website does not allow for Saturday reservations because we are not usually open for regular business but people can call the restaurant to make a reservation at 905-525-9140 extension 24405 or email me directly at this email address (email@example.com). If the group is over 12 people please have them email me as the floor staff are unable to take reservations for groups larger than that and will just direct people to email me anyway. "
