Going to Montreal around New Years because I'm fucking crazy like that. And a cheapskate.
Lodging: Downtown/Old Montreal or Le Plateau? Seems like all the cool stuff to do is in the Plateau, but it's also more spread out so there would be a lot more walking/freezing asses off involved. So, maybe smarter to stay downtown and use the Metro?
Gorging: Bagels/Smoked Meat/Poutine recommendations please
Drinking: Where to go, what to try?
Shopping: Record stores, etc?
Recreating: Ice skating, tobogganing, bobsledding? Are those things fun?
And where are Les Sexareenos playing on NYE?
Say "hi" to Skip Jensen and Demon's Claws and join the Human Design cult?
MOVE 'EM NORTH!
But seriously, West Bank rednexx are allowing these pigs to live, unkilled?
You see hordes of feral hogs. I see tons of yummy bacon.
If you end up at DJ's off St Catherine, and Karen is bartending, please tell her I love her. I haven't seen her since 1995, but my 21 year old self still has a mad crush. She completed me.
Take a hog to Montreal. Birds, stones, etc.
Don't take anything from Hawaii, no rocks or anything....but take all that stuff to Montreal? It's hard to keep track of all the superstitions.
Don't hide fruit in your luggage, I've learned that the hard way.
What about pouring a bunch of maple syrup into ziploc bags and putting them in my suitcase. What could possibly go wrong?
I'm stupid, but, Fairmount Bagel
are close together and both are stoopid awesome.
If you stay downtown, there's the underground city
to get around, though all the shops kinda suck. It keeps you warm from a to z.
Yeah, I think we settled on a place that's about midway between those bagel places and Schwartz's Deli, so a few blocks from either. I'll neither confirm nor deny that the apartment was selected for its proximity to those places.
I did the "adult" thing and bought a "coat" the other day so I don't have to live in the underground city the whole time.. Weird.
