Your REDBLACKS game day plans are about to get a whole lot better (and cheesier)! Crust & Crate is the place to be on game days as a CAA Member with the ultimate REDBLACKS pregame happy hour.
We asked Ottawa foodie Carlo from @consumedbycarlo to quarterback his top picks at the fast-fired pizza pub.
Save at Crust & Crate
Crust & Crate is budget-friendly with $5 drinks, $10 apps, and $15 pitchers every single day. And if you’re a CAA Member, you get an exclusive offer of two pizzas for $25! Yes, you’re reading that correctly.
The best part? It’s not limited to just happy hour or game days. Members have access to this exclusive deal all year!
What to order
Now, let’s dive into the pizzas, and I wish I meant literally (they’re that good). I love spicy slices, so I had to order the Hot Diavola comes with all things spicy and nice-y. I’m talking piquante soppressata, Italian sausage, chili flakes, roasted peppers, kale, ricotta cheese and hot honey sauce. Bellissimo!
The second pizza was Not Your Grandma’s Garden, and it’s a veggie lover’s dream. It was loaded with broccoli, charred zucchini, roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives. With so many vegetables it’s essentially like eating a salad… right?
Steps from TD Place
After I ate my heart out in fast-fired pizza and nachos, I headed over to the Ottawa REDBLACKS game. There are three locations across Ottawa but with one in the heart of Lansdowne, you can walk on over to the game after fueling up.
The energy in the stadium was electrifying, and the game was such a close battle! The Ottawa REDBLACKS lost by only a few points (we’ll get ’em next time). My favourite part of the night was seeing everyone so happy at being together again.
Get game day ready
I can’t wait to do it all again at the next home game, and you can too! Whether you’re a CAA Member (or I’ve now convinced you to become one), you can live the same food, fun and football-filled night as I did. See you there!
