While in Montreal, what would you like to see and do?


A culinary tour of the city? A culinary shopping tour? Museeums? General tour of the city? Visit the countryside?

I think that museums should be left up to us to do on our own. Since we all have food in common, that should be the main focus of the weekend, in my humble opinion.

I totally agree with Momoreg on this one. :rolleyes:

So do I.


I'm just trying to see what people would like to do, so I can get all the information that is needed from the tourist office. That way no one will have to go line up there for an hour or so.



I like to think ahead. :)

Sounds good to me....I have a bent toward farmer's markets, cheese shops, bakeries, Go Food, "place specific food".....talking to and touring the French bakery would be great...A super dinner place, a chunk of time to vegetate and get to talk face to face.
maybe some ideas for those that come in early or late.
Hotels, hostels, condos....most price ranges or info on how to access on line.
Travel tips to Toronto and Quebec....
Thank you for putting this together....ummmm should I bone up on my high school French?

Anything food-related is good for me especially sweet- and pastry-related. Any price range or quality of lodging is fine. I'm game for whatever.

It's not a pre-requisite as most people are bilingual in Montreal. For Quebec City, well, a few polite sentences can't hurt. Toronto is in English-Canada, you shouldn't have any problems.

Do we have schtuff for you Shroomgirl! Touring cheese shops, bakeries (especially Banette), Farmers' Markets, a super dinner place, a chunk of time to vegetate and get to talk face to face, that's exactly what I had in mind.

I also thought you all should have some free time to explore by yourselves. Just get lost in the city and have fun...but don't forget the name of your hotel...

I am meeting with an auberge owner tomorrow night and will get back to you all during the week.

AMazing Progress during the month ;-)

Isa and Kimmie with support from the regulars have put togther a 'licious June weekend in Montreal. well done !!!

The farmers market, pastry shops, Bagel shop are must visits.
Is there not a barn converted into a pub, north of the city - great ambience, food ?

an exotic 6-9 course Cantonese (banquet) menu should come to approx 40-60 per person, to include sharks fin, oysters, ....
and NO MSG, but it's Montreal, and should be more Quebeqois/French.

It sure sounds like a 'heavy' weekend waiting for all

:cool: :cool: :cool:

ken
:lol:
Essentially Cantonese, tho any food is good....
natural and valu for money IS prime

Dear Ken,

We most certainly have a Chinatown here. They serve dim-sum on Sundays for lunch...:rolleyes:

Anyone bringing kids? Beside bebe Momo who might be too young to enjoy the tour, there are a few things kids might enjoy. There's an amusement park with rides. The biodome, a mix of zoo/aquarium with lots of nature. And let's not forget the insectarium, every bg immaginable is there. They also hold bug tasting, very popular with kids.


Will anyone require a baby sitter?


About lodging, there are a few factors to think of. Do you want to be downtown? in the old Montreal? or just outside of downtown, which is a bit less expensive and quieter. Do you want hotel or bed and breakfast?


Does any one has special needs we should think of?

I would like a hotel. A few years ago, I stayed at the Delta, which was fine, but a tiny bit out of the way.

Old Montreal would be very charming. What are the prices like?
post #194 of 199
I will tell you tonight. Meeting with someone later in this matter.

:D

I'm not bringing kids or even Theo, but I'm a big kid in many ways. I've always wanted to go to the Insectarium; don't know about bug tasting though. However, that's certainly one of the things I can do while out exploring.

Cheese shops would be great; then, all you experts can teach me about good cheese. I'm getting excited and it's still months and months away!

James Bond,
What is that crack supposed to mean? If you wish I don't come than just say so' wait a minute, THE BEAVER DON'T TALK TO NOBODY!!
You will be the first one I will seek out, I'll be the short fat one with the cowboy hat and boots. First I will have to go to NY to buy some.
Isa, if my wife and son choose not to meet me there than I will certainly be in need of a baby sitter. My 10 yr. old took a class this past summer on biodomes, he has already mentioned it.

Hey Jimmy,:D :p :rolleyes: :smoking: :crazy:
