Shoeless Joe's at King & Dufferin

Goodbye Shoeless Joe’s, our home pub

RPB members organized their last big gathering at Shoeless Joe’s on December 27th after our beloved Joe himself announced at the beginning of December that Shoeless Joe’s would be closing its doors at the end of the month. With such a short window to celebrate in style, members old and new joined in the festivities or dropped in throughout the month to shake Joe’s hand to thank and wish him well.

We celebrate everything that bar has meant to us. Joe’s has been our rock through thick and thin, and I consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have called it home for so many years.

Joe’s has been the home to the Red Patch Boys since 2007 when TFC first started. It has also been a hub for the entire soccer community.

Joe’s has always been there for us, and we’ve always been there for Joe, Kim (wife) and the incredible staff.

Joe and Kim, now honourary RPB members for life, and all RPB and Toronto FC supporters have accepted that Shoeless Joe’s at King and Dufferin has come to an end. Joe and Kim have always gone above and beyond to accommodate RPB – treated the group like family. We wish Joe, Kim and all staff well in their future endeavours.

Shoeless Joe’s Restaurant, previously located at King and Dufferin, became the unofficial “clubhouse” for the RPB’s, hosting pre and post game socials as well as various club meetings. The outstanding service and hospitality exhibited by owners Joe and Kim Cho quickly lead credence to the chant “This is our house”.

As tradition continues, RPB members voted for the Red Patch Boys TFC Player of the Year. Members weigh each player and dictate the most valuable player, a player that stood out on their accomplishments and/or the player who has made a difference throughout the season. Minutes played, games played, games started, goals, assists, shots taken, shots on goal, game winning goals, fouls committed, and fouls suffered all factor into their decision. The player with the most votes will be gifted a plaque from the Red Patch Boys and a Player of the Year scarf.

Congratulations to Alejandro Pozuelo!

Toronto FC Supporters at MLS Cup Final in Seattle 2019

With great anticipation and amazement, Toronto FC found themselves in the MLS Cup final for a 3rd time in 4 years with a one-game winner-takes-all single elimination playoff run and in front of almost 70,000 fans and supporters. Also, in November – a month earlier than previous years.

In Quarterfinals, Toronto FC eliminated D.C. United at home with a 5-1 victory. The team and road warriors traveled to New York City FC for the Semifinals winning 2-1. MLS allocated 3,000 tickets to road warriors at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington and Toronto FC supporter presence was undeniably strong. Toronto FC players and supporters wandered the city all weekend arranging meetups to celebrate the whirlwind of a playoff season. Back in Toronto at our home pub, Shoeless Joe’s, supporters secured tables up to 3+ hours before match time. The excitement, chanting and support home and away remained a connected force throughout the match. Toronto FC lost 3-1 in Seattle but we tip our hats to Toronto FC and RPB road warrior supporter efforts to represent the Reds.

The Supporters Cup Tournament was held on Sunday, October 27 at BMO Training Grounds. The cold and heavy wind challenged the teams.

RPB did not come out on top but endured and persevered. Thanks to all players and spectators who organized and participated on the blustery day!
