Grizzly Posted November 13, 2006 Share Posted November 13, 2006 On another thread Daniel mentioned meeting to watch this game. I have checked with both Champs and Cafe Veranda about whether they have Goltv. Champs said they had goltv and that it wouldn't be any problem to set a tv to the game. Although Champs are not always reliable about doing what they say they have a lot of tvs so I think we can depend on them in this regard. Cafe Veranda also seems to have Goltv which was showing Columbian soccer at the moment although it did freak me out a bit that they didn't have ABC so I couldn't watch the MLS final there (Is ABC not a part of basic cable in Montreal? When we selected goltv the soccer came on but when ABC was selected it said we had to call the cable company). The bars are about a 10 minute walk from each other so if there is a problem at one it should be possible to go to the other. I would like to know who would be planning to go (also if you are coming for sure or only possibly) and what bar your preference is. Here a short dis/advantage list: Champs http://www.restomontreal.ca/restaurants/index.php?section=viewresto&resto_id=326&show=map -Many tvs but may have to settle for a small one if larger groups are watching other games -Poor food and poor service -Expensive -Will be able to keep eye on other games -More of a soccer atmosphere if people are there watching the other games (not sure how many people show up in the middle of the day to watch friendlies there) Veranda http://www.restomontreal.ca/restaurants/index.php?section=viewresto&resto_id=275&show=map -Only two tvs but they can be set to different channels, one is large screen and the other medium. Not really a sports bar so it shouldn't be a problem at that time getting the big screen. -Cheaper than Champs with better food. They have a restaurant not a bar license so if you order alcohol you do have to order a food dish once. However, they do have small entrees for $1 to $2 so at the worst you pay the same with the entree as a beer alone at Champs and also are not required to order food with any subsequent drinks. (Is this a weird law in Quebec? I have never encountered this in any other province but they are several bars like that in Montreal and the owners say it is less expensive and easier to get a restaurant than a bar licence.) -Will not have other soccer games on tv -More pleasant than Champs but won't be a soccer atmosphere Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
