There are several bars near the Rogers Centre for pre-drinking and pre-eating before heading over to the game because people of Toronto know anything accociated with the name "Rogers" is never a good deal.
Same goes for inside the Rogers Centre, where everything from beer to a slice of pizza will give your wallet a thorough pounding.
Thankfully, there are a few bars near the Rogers Centre to meet up with friends, guzzle brews and fill up on food before paying stadium prices. Sure, it’s hard to resist sipping even a $10+ beer while watching the game, but a few beers beforehand might help from spending a small fortune once inside.
Just know that bars near the Rogers Centre within walking distance can get pretty slammed before the game and patio seating can be scarce on nice afternoons. Get there early and save spots for your friends.
