Playmaker's and Garbonzo’s Pizza Opening on Empress Street

Playmaker’s and Garbonzo’s will be opening at the long vacant former Foody Goody location on Ellice & Empress. The restaurant and gaming lounge will be operated by Canada Inns.

Garbonzo’s specializes in casual Italian fare with a pub-style atmosphere. There is currently a location at the University of Winnipeg AnX. Playmaker’s Gaming Lounge is a “boutique casino” where players try their luck on modern VLTs.
