I was out with the Canada Clan tonight (D’Arcy from Winnipeg, Jennifer from Saskatoon, Nolan from Victoria, Rob from Toronto, Chris from East of Toronto, and Jason from Fredrickton). Things didn’t get all wild and rowdy although I believe that it is only a matter of time before D’Arcy gets us into a street fight because of his horrid French Canadian impersonations. We all ended up down in old Montreal and I have to say it is a simply amazing place to visit. The streets were all cobble stone, narrow and lined with some great buildings. The other thing that I noticed was that there were an amazing number of restaurants and pubs. Thank god I don’t live here. If I did, I would be a very, very poor man. See the pics here.
It was a great way to cap of a great night. The evening was so mild that I had no problem walking back to the hotel (about 15-20 blocks) with a short sleeved shirt on. It was a shame to let such a great evening end, but alas it had to. There were two reasons for this. First, none of these geeks can pack down the liquor in the way I’ve grown accustom to. Second, we saw this wacked out dude on the street running around screaming about a burrito and we thought it might be time to get some rest before we had more hallucinations.
I’m the Igloo Coder and I’m not suggesting you come to visit Montreal, I’m demanding that you do.
