Labor Day Weekend... if i can get a dog sitter, there may be some FOM MC hooligans headed north of the border. Not etched in stone yet, but its a plan.... which is more than we usually have in the MC. Usually it's just half- thoughts and poor choices.



Step 1: Find a dog sitter.
Step 2: Etch that shit in stone.
Step 3: Commence with Labor Day hooliganism.

Otherwise Rev Thumper gets promoted to VP of the MC and you get demoted to being Rev Thumper.
Do they have Labor Day in Canada? Labour Daye?

It's already hard enough to tell Vee and The Rev apart at Ohana. Don't let them start swapping titles too.

Sent from somewhere exotic


haha yeah we do have labour day ;)
If this plan is concrete, we can try to meet you guys somewhere but Jim's dad is sick so we may have to go to Lennoxville to see him.
Also, if you plan on going to Snowbird, I recommand that you make a reservation through their website. Saturdays can get pretty busy :)

There will definitely be a hotel involved. I don't think anyone's picked one yet.

I think the thought was just Saturday night.

This is awesome! I sent rev_thumper a few suggestions of airbnbs that are in the area of Snowbird (since there's not a lot of hotels in that area of mtl) and that can accomodate groups. I don,t know if they would still be available at this time, though. I guess i can post them here, if it makes it easier for everyone :)

Also, once I know the final number of pple coming, i can make the reservation for the date that you guys wish to go...and what time (I suggest earlier than later in the evening. The music and ambiance is better around dinner time)

Annd...once we know when we go to snowbird, we can also figure out who is down for a little shingding at our place and when would be the best time :drunk:

Some info for lodging... first link is for an airbnb for 10 pple and it seems to still be available.
The second link is a hotel located downtow (maybe closer to everything else you may want to see in the city). It's got good reviews from friends who stayed there.

Also very important...POUTINE : https://montreal.eater.com/maps/meilleu ... e-montreal ;)

more info to come later...lunch break is over. heehee

Poutine is good but my list includes smoked meats of course. 8)

I think the plan remains to gather folks here in NH Friday night then set out early Saturday morning to arrive in town by lunch and stay the night.

oh okay! a really quick trip, it'll be!
for Smoked meat, you'll of course have Schwartz's but on the weekend it's pretty much HELL and you have to line up outside for a good 30-45 minutes to get in. You can go to Dunn's (my second choice, downtown) or The Main (almost in front of Schwartz's).

I want to go but I've got the Armadillo Luau the following weekend so funds are tighter than tight.
All that being said....whose couch can I crash on?

If you don't mind a cat and are ok with an inflatable mattress (our couch is a two seat :P ), you're welcome at our place :D

and...Armadillo Luau? that sounds like fun!

Thanks for the recommendations! I've never tried Dunn's... sounds like a must-visit to me. :fez:

What flavor?


Kidding kidding....I like every flavor cat.


Again...kidding....I don't like the lemon flavor.


Ooooooooohkay.....now I'm really done kidding.
That is incredibly generous of you and I might very well take you up on your offer. Thank You!
And I promise not to eat your cat.

Yes, quick trip as we are leaving a few days later for Austin so can't take Friday or Monday off. Just finding a compatible weekend was herding cats!

Some might come Friday?

We've grabbed a room at the Ville-Marie Montreal Hotel & Suites Best Western for proximity to smoked meats 8)

Still trying to convince Architiki to go! We booked this week off in hopes of making it to Palm Springs Modernism Week preview, but since we haven't booked anything there yet....
(Also, I am craving some Schwartz's...)

We're booked at Hotel Le Dauphin. $140/night and a little closer to Old Montreal. Coming in late Friday, and we'll be doing the tourist thing Saturday until snowbird time!

I'm not allowed to go to tiki bars with Bargoyle anymore.
Especially after what happened last time at Rhum in Portland.

Why did you make me drink gin?
Why???

Just as a side note as someone who lived and worked in Mtl for 4 years and has visited regularly for 30, there is no substitute for Schwartz's, not Dunns, not Snowdon's, not Smoked Meat Pete. Seriously: they have some sort of magic voodoo/blessings of the Pickled Gods/tiki power, etc. So, do yourselves a favour and line up. It's the best sandwich in Canada, and I say this as a very proud Torontonian.
