So I have to head to Toon Town in September for a meeting and yes it is during openning weekend for the the Blades but bet that isn't an easy ticket so I'm not counting on catching that one. We will be staying at the Delta Hotel. So what else is there to do? In relatively close distance to the hotel (cabs easy or hard to get?)

Good bars?

Fun night spots?

Decent food?

Must sees?

Unique shops?

Whatever you can help a fella out with.

You will have no issue finding a ticket for any game. If you have deep pockets, check out the Samurai(which is your resteruant attached to your hotel near the lobby. You're looking at roughly 30$ a plate though.

The best club in Saskatoon would be Tequila(closest thing they have to a REAL club) Usually decent music and a dress code. No hoodies, no hats, decent shoes. The Bes sits in front of a beautiful river view which im sure you will appreciate. Enjoy your stay, any other questions, feel free to ask!

I just assumed openning night there getting a ticket would be impossible. If that's the case I might have to catch a game. That would be sweet I just assumed it wasn't an option. Is it always easy to get e ticket there????

opening night usually sells around 7000-10000 tix. But remember that CUC is a 13,000 seat arena. Youll most definately be able to check out the game.

You will have no trouble getting a walk up ticket to the game

Good bars?
A couple places that are a bit more "low key" are the Yard and Flagon on Broadway. O'shea's and the Barking Fish are Pubs just down from the theatre and within walking distance of your hotel. They are mellow little places with friendly bartenders.
A really cool little bar is Tusq just down from the road from you. It's a piano bar with a really cool vibe.
If your looking for Sports Bars. Joe Dogs is close enough to you and is pretty good. Another one that would be a bit more of a ride (10 mins maybe) is Sports on Tap. It is the old casino. Good bar food, no shortage of screens, indoor virtual golf and an area to watch horse races and place bets. A good place to kill a few hours.

Fun night spots?
The other guys covered this. Im not into this scene so I couldn't give you much direction here.

Decent food?
Samarai your not walking out with a bill less than 100 bucks but it's a real cool place and a good experience.
Carvers Steak House just across from the hotel is another great place but won't spend less than 100 bucks. Excellent food!
Johns Prime Rib is just down the street from you.
The Station Place on Idywyld is an old Train Station converted into a restraunt. Good food and a little different than your average restraunt.

Must sees?
I wouldn't say there are any real "must see's." If there are your staying in one of them. The river is nice, the bridges are nice all lit up at night. Check out the pond where Gordie Howe learned to play hockey. There are no signs or anything so it may take a little bit of work but I could get you there.

Unique shops?
Just take a walk down Broadway Avenue. You've pretty much got it covered if you do that.
