So, I'm a Senators fan visiting LA for the first time this weekend/next week. My ladyfriend and I have tickets for the game on Monday night - it'll be the first time I've seen my team in about 8 or 9 years, and the first time I've seen NHL hockey live in 6 years. (I don't actually live in Ottawa - I'm in the Yukon territory.)
Hey Kings fans - hopefully this won't be seen as *too* hostile a fanpost!
Anyway, I was wondering if you all had any hockey-friendly bar recommendations. Specifically, I'd love to find a place I might be able to head to on Saturday afternoon where I might find the Ducks/Sens game on TV (bonus points if it's in a part of town where said ladyfriend might be able to amuse herself with shopping while I hang out) and/or a place to go for dinner before the game on Monday where there might be some East Coast games on while we dine. (I know there are a bunch of restaurants in this LA Live complex right near the arena, but if you could point me in the direction of a place where hockey isn't a foreign language, that would be appreciated.) We're staying downtown at the Westin Bonaventure and will mostly be getting around by metro, if any of that matters.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can provide, and I look forward to a great game. Cheers!
