Our neighbor to the north has a special home in H-Town at the Maple Leaf Pub. Owned by a hockey-loving husband-and-wife team, the Midtown-set bar draws sports fanatics and young professionals hoping to catch the Calgary Flames game—NFL, college and NBA games get airtime here, too—on one of Maple Leaf’s six plasma TVs.
Hockey paraphernalia (jerseys, autographed flare and photos) adorn the walls, but the real pièce de résistance has to be the pub’s penalty box, where unruly patrons are invited to take a time out. And to keep patrons entertained between periods, Maple Leaf offers free Wi-Fi, dart boards and a hearty selection of classic board games including Connect Four, Scrabble and Chutes & Ladders.
The pub offers a solid mix of draft beers like Stella, Woodchuck and Labatt, as well as several bottled varieties of Canadian, Texan and American brews. Stop by for daily happy hour, drink specials and a tempting steak night on Thursday nights.
