This is also the only weekend of the year where you can choose from either our Winnipeg Burger & a Pint feature or our Saskatchewan Burger & a Pint feature. History has shown that the burger which sells the best prior to the game is a strong indicator as to which team will win the Labour Day Classic! We open at 11:00 AM on all three days.
