With the snow finally disappearing for the Spring, it seems like there’s no better time than now to pull your Toronto Blue Jays clothes and jerseys out of the closet and begin cheering on Canada’s team for the next 6 months (playoffs pending…). Your Blue Jays have gotten off to an okay start to the year, currently sitting in third place in the division (but above .500!) with tons of games to go.
As Summer and ball season are my favourite time of year, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to put together a list of some of the top places in Saskatchewan where you can pick up your Jays gear for the year, as well as a list of some local restaurants where you can sit down, grab a bite and a drink, and enjoy the game.
1- Ultimate Fan Zone (Moose Jaw) – This locally owned fan favourite is your #1 destination for sports apparel, memorabilia, and collectibles. Snag your favourite player’s new jersey or maybe grab a Jays travel mug for your Dad for Father’s Day!
2- Torchy’s Sport Imaging & Embroidery (Regina) – While Torchy’s doesn’t sell Blue Jays jerseys, they are able to customize your existing jersey with your favourite players name and number at a great price. For all you Rider fans, Torchy’s can also customize those for you.
3- Jersey City (Saskatoon/Province-Wide) – Jersey City is a national chain with locations across the province, but their feature store is in Midtown Plaza in Saskatoon. It’s here where you’ll find not only the newest and greatest Jays gear, but also NFL, NHL, and NBA apparel.
Now that you have the gear, it’s time to head out for some food and drinks and to cheer on the team.
1- Birmingham’s Vodka & Ale House (Regina & Saskatoon) – With over 110 different vodka choices and 20 or more draught selections, Birmingham’s is the perfect place to enjoy some good food and drinks while watching a ball game on one of the many TVs strategically situated throughout their restaurants.
2- Hudson’s (Saskatoon) – Sometimes it’s tough to get home from work to catch the start of the game, so what better place than Hudson’s (conveniently located in the downtown area) to stop in at on the way home. Their “Pre-Game Frickles” (deep fried pickles) are perfect to snack on during the game and why not end the night with some Maple Bacon Mini Donuts?
3- Rosie’s on River Street (Moose Jaw) – Rosie’s is a hometown staple in the Moose Jaw area and always sees a good crowd for Jays games. The food here is to die for and the atmosphere always proves to be a good time.
