Just how hard is it to be a hockey fan and find clothing and hats on sale for the Montreal Canadiens in the Niagara Region Ontario Canada.

We’ve been combing the thrift stores and Harry found a sweatshirt at Value Village in Niagara Falls for $6.  He found the hat (red one) at LIDS at the Oakville Place Shopping Mall in Oakville Ontario Canada on sale from $18 for $6.

Two things for $6. hah!

the idea girl says

The Jersey we found (I have to take a picture for you) at the St Catharines Flea Market for $20 (one day sale they usually go for $30 or higher).

I told her to order more in the larger sizes.  We find stuff in small and medium but not many in large, x large and 3x large, which some of the fans are looking for from Fort Erie.

We’ll let you know where we find the stuff.  We’ve been asking retailers in the Niagara Region including Tim Hortons to start getting stuff for the fans here (most things are Toronto Maple Leafs – Hockey, Blue Jays for Baseball stuff)

now harry can wear  his stuff when we go to watch the game at different places..

last night we went dancing (only a few slow ones is all I can do) at the Legion and they were kind enough to put the game on so that Harry and Dorothy could watch Montreal lose in the 3rd period to washington capitals.  it was a close game and I notice they played a lot FASTER on the ice then they do against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

the idea girl says

so were out going for a sunny day car ride and decide to check out the Swiss Chalet Harvey’s Restaurant along the QEW Niagara  in Grimsby, Ontario Canada

It was VERY confusing on HOW to get to the place because there’s signs on the QEW but once you get on the North Service Rd, no SIGNS!!!!

So best thing is to look for the Super 8 Hotel which is next door or the Tim Horton’s which is on the other side of it as well as the Subway Restaurant in the strip plaza which FACEs the QEW but you have to get to it from the back parking lot entrances off the North Service Rd.

the idea girl says

We figured the best way THIS time (yes we TRIED 3 times and gave up in a month’s time!) this time we tried this route instead and success!!! so look for the Casablanca Boulevard Exit off the QEW Niagara/Toronto (depending on which route your heading too – Niagara – Niagara Falls, St Catharines, Welland, Port Colborne, Niagara on the Lake and Fort Erie. or Toronto – Beamsville, Grimsby, Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Toronto)

so this is what it looks like if your on the north side of the QEW heading towards Toronto.

The EXIT is quite a distance BEFORE this…

the idea girl says

Super 8 Hotel is just before it, so take the exits for this (they have signs all the WAY to the hotel along the QEW and the North Service Rd in Grimsby)

how convenient to have four restaurants where you can WALK over for breakfast, lunch or supper to save on GAS if you want too…

the idea girl says

I eat at Swiss Chalet usually in Welland or St Catharines so I was very annoyed when I got my first set of chicken spring rolls.  Burnt black supposedly from the teriaki sauce inside of them according to the Manager and cook who apologized to me.  I wasn’t satisfied with my meal or the customer service I received at this Swiss Chalet location.  They made me another batch but they were burnt too but not as black as the first batch. Also the grease tasted old, like it was on it’s “I need to be changed NOW” day…

Told you I’m picky! *wink*

so if you care about the flavor and appearance and don’t want your food BURNT I’d avoid eating at this particular location….

the idea girl says

I had  a few bites of harry’s poutine – fries, cheese and gravy.  we always order the fries with no salt, if not they will be TOOO salty at ANY restaurant.  There’s loads of salt in the cheese and gravy so it’s best to order “no salt fries” for any poutine in ontario canada!

Again same restaurant, same cook, food was done perfectly!

Oakville Place Shopping trip – here’s the picture of Harry’s new Montreal Canadiens Hockey ball cap!

Dorothy spotted it at LIDS on sale for $6 (regular price was $18) so now Harry has a brand new RED hat and an old faded BLUE one…

were still looking for a “WHITE” montreal Canadiens hat for him!

the idea girl says

yes I am a food critic as well.  Usually I’ll do good and bad reviews on my other blog – the idea girl says wordpress, but since this is in the Niagara Region and I am focusing on travel, tourism guides on idea girl canada blog, it’s on here instead.

Usually if the customer service is REALLY bad or the food not cooked right I will YELP my review as well. The cook did a perfect job with the burgers, fries and perogies.

The chicken spring rolls are being cooked at too high of a deep fryer temperature.  They need to be cooked longer and at a lower temperature to stop the sauce from burning inside of them.  I’ve gone to several other Swiss Chalet restaurants several times and NEVER gotten a burnt chicken spring roll EVER.  So I am assuming it’s either a temperature issue or the length of cooking time needs to be cut back… so they won’t burn. 🙂
