Good news for those of you who think the 60-plus crowd gets all the best sports: you no longer have to wait until your golden years to take up shuffleboard. That’s because Toronto’s getting its very own indoor lawn games bar, and it opens April 17. Track & Field Bar, owned by the folks behind Montauk, has taken over the space on College near Ossington formerly occupied by The Cave nightclub, and will cater to those who want to do something while drinking but are nervous about that something involving an axe. The 5,000-square-foot space features two bocce ball lanes and two shuffleboard decks, one of each saved for walk-ins and all available to play free of charge. And for those waiting for a lane to free up: crokinole boards will be available for a little sit-down play. And, as Adam Vaughan and Gord Perks know, lawn games are best enjoyed with a bit of booze, so there’s that too. Following in Montauk’s steps, there will be classic and signature cocktails on tap, as well as bottled, canned and draught beer.
