I have been in Kanata for a couple of months. I walk past O'Connors almost everyday. At first, the place was always busy, and a fun place to stop for a beer. However, over the past couple of months, I am becoming less and less impressed with the place. Tonight, on my way back to the hotel, I heard the sounds of the Ottawa Senators - Montreal Canadiens wafting from inside the restaurant. So I stopped in for a drink and to watch the game. I parked myself at the bar right under the TV. I ordered my beer and struck up a conversation with the bartender. We chatted about the game and hockey in general. During the half-time, the bartender muted the TV, and turned up the music. No problem. HOWEVER, when the game resumed, the bartender did NOT un-muted the TV UNTIL another patron, who appeared to be a friend of the bartender, appeared. Nevermind I was still glued to the TV despite no sound. Is it so rare that a female from the Southern US to want to watch an NHL preseason game?!? And don't even get me started on the bland, stale nacho chips....this may have been my last trip to O'Connors.
