post #31 of 199
Could a newbie and her family come? Montreal sounds wonderful, and I have learned so much from reading these boards that I would love to meet you all! I've seen the pictures from the last get-together and it looks like a blast. This would be great!

Montreal is disgusting in the dead of winter. I suggest we wait...

Kimmie, is Les Caprices de Nicholas still as divine as it was 4-5 years ago?

I was hoping for late spring when the flowers are starting to send there aroma through the streets and the smell from the boulengar (sp?) fills the air.

;) ;)

Don't mean to burst your bubble CC but Montreal ain't THAT quaint.... Nope, you won't smell the flowers and the fresh bread until you're actualy IN the shops. Outside it's just good ol' fashioned gasoline and pot. Which has a certain charm as well I suppose. ;)

No Problem Anneke,
Just trying to get in the mood.
BTW,what is "Pot" in gasiline and pot?

Les caprices de Nicholas

Oh my, Anneke,

I haven't been there in the past 2 or 3 years. What a romantic place; and the food...! I hope it's not closed!

:rolleyes:

Les caprices de Nicolas is still open, Nicolas Jongleux is no longer the chef. He left a few years ago to open his open restaurant, Jongleux Café on St-Denis.


Nicolas died last year.

A few years ago, I went skiing on Mont Tremblant, a bit north of Montreal. The temp. at the peak was -40 celsius and fahrenheit! We decided to leave a day early and go to Montreal, where it was a much more manageable 23 below zero.

Note to self: Stay away fromMontreal in the winter!

Another note to self: Have nothing but respect for people who live there, because they all go out in that weather!! :eek:

Isa, what a shock! After reading your post, I looked up some articles on the web about his death. It turns out he had been fighting depression for several years and took his own life inside his new (and very successful) restaurant. He would have been 34. How tragic...

Actually Momo we have an impressive underground city. Once in the metro, you can go shopping, to the movies, concert or theater and eat without setting a foot outside.


That's how we survive.

Yes, I remember checking out some of the underground shops. Very ingenious way to keep people out of the cold.

Seriously part of winter is very enjoyable. I always loved snow storms. It's so peaceful and quiet and so pristine. One of the great pleasure of winter is taking a walk just as the storm calms down.


I could also mention the joys of shoveling snow, getting you &*#$ car out of a snow bank. Trying not to break your neck on the slippery sidewalks. Frezing your butt off tryng to get to the metro. Digging a hole in the snowbank to park your *(^&$% car.


ARGH I hate winter!

:D

We went using MTL vacations. Queen Elizabeth was our hotel and we flew from Newark, NJ. For the three days including one airfair it was $275 US plus an extra $65 for the second ticket. Great prices and a great city! :beer: We went in March and skated, hiked, shopped and stuffed our faces, smoked Cuban Cigars, Gambled and toured the city, watched Curling on the telly. :lips:

Oooh food, my favorite!

Ask the freezing mediterranean!!

:lol:

Isa! Can you imagine MY cultural shock when I visited Montreal during the winter?

I was complaining to my husband about winter in NY and how miserable would I become there and one morning as I was murmuring AGAIN he proposed that we should visit a friend in Montreal!!

Of course this friend didn't exist, Nick thought that I would appreciate the mild winter of NYC (...) but I had great time in Montreal and I fell in love with Canada at first sight!
It's sooo different!!
You are lucky to live in such a beautiful country!

Anneke , yes!! We will visit Canada for sure , during winter of course!!

Ok so a winter meeting is out of question. The next step would be the set a date. How's May? Nice weather, not too hot, snow is, hopefully, all gone.

Isa,
Spring is a great idea. May would be good for Nicko and I, but keep in mind Momoreg is expecting to deliver that month! Maybe April or June would be better?:eek:

Thanks, Coll!

Yes, April or June would definitely be better for me. I know they don't let women fly in their last month of pregnancy, and sitting in a car for 7 hours would be torture at that size, so I'm voting for June. But by all means, if May is a convenient time for everyone else, don't let me stop it from happening then!:)

May sounds good. U.S. Memorial day is the weekend of May 25. It's a long weekend for people in the states. Just a thought... Momo, your little one will have TONS of doting aunties and uncles!!

April might not be a good idea. There a chance we might still have snow. There is usually one last snow storm somewhere in April. June on the other hand is a nice month in Montreal. It's warm without being too hot.


An added bonus in June, we'll all get to meet Bébé Momo! :bounce:

"Twas a brilliant suggestion.

It's cosmopolitan and continental, flair....
Food's excellent ,
so a weekend in May or June.

Being only 2 hours away, Kimmie and Isa call me in early for help if and when needed.

See you all next year

Being in June and in Montreal would be great, because not only would I get to meet all you folks, I'll also get to visit with all my family living there, and of course my parents will be coming with me because my mom is from Montreal.
