The popular Caribbean restaurant The Real Jerk got some love this long weekend from the Toronto Raptors.

Newest Toronto Raptors' members Scottie Barnes and Dalano Banton, who were recently drafted to the team, were spotted hanging out at the iconic Toronto joint with rapper and producer Kardinal Offishall.

Banton, of course, is no stranger to Toronto. Hailing from Rexdale, the 21- year old is the first-ever Candian to be drafted for the Raptors.

Barnes, on the other hand, is new to the city and comes all the way from Florida. The newly drafted player was the fourth pick in the NBA draft.

Banton and Barnes seem to be receiving the full Toronto experience and have even met the Raptors biggest fan and one of the city's most famous rappers, Drake.
