Need a game plan before going to see the New York Jets take on the Buffalo Bills in Toronto next month? NY1’s Valarie D’Elia has the details in the following Travel with Val report.
Toronto, Canada is just a hop, skip and touchdown pass away on December 3rd, when the Jets face the Bills in the Rogers Centre for a primetime American Football Conference matchup.
Packages are still available for the showdown, so if you plan to suit up for the trip, here’s the starting lineup of things to do in the city.
First, the Westin Harbor Castle, smack dab on Lake Ontario, is very close to the stadium and is presenting a special tailgate menu with stuffed BBQ chicken wings and micro burgers in their lobby lounge. If you have the appetite of a linebacker, head straight for the historic St. Lawrence market to chow down on the famous Canadian Peameal Bacon sandwich.
Also in the vicinity is the Steam Whistle Brewery, located on the grounds of a vintage steam train roundhouse. For $10, you can tour the line to see the pilsner being bottled and then belly up to the bar afterward for suds in a souvenir glass.
Not having tickets to the game doesn’t mean you’ll be sidelined, because Hoops Sports Bar has TVs everywhere you turn.
After the game, stop by one of the corner hot dog stands for the city’s favorite street meat. The grilled dogs and sausages are crowned with a variety of toppings any connoisseur will relish.
The Westin Harbour Castle is offering a $179 per night rate for fans who already have tickets to the game.
Now here’s a D’Elia’s Deal you don’t want to miss at the Westin Harbor Castle for two. Get tickets to the game along with a three-night stay for under $500. Go to SeeTorontoNow.com/Jets.
