Tourism sillinesses of the day
Huffington Post has a piece today about the five things you must eat in Montreal with a few odd touches, my favourite being this bit: “Have a taste at Poutine Lafleur (3665 Rue Wellington) which serves some of the best traditional poutine in the city despite looking like a fast food joint.”
Despite looking like a fast food joint ? Parse me that. Take your time – I have all day.
They also recommend ice cream in a piece published November 2, when almost all ice cream places are closed for the season and cafés that serve it in the summertime won’t be prepared to dish any out for awhile.
National Geographic has a guide to the city with a reasonable list of things to do and some curious cultural tips (are we so confrontational?) including a phrase book which might help out at your next Sank-AH-set.
This Business Insider piece on five things to do in Montreal suggests a hot dog at “St. Denis Pool Hall” – it’s possible I’ve missed the existence of this establishment, but Google is unenlightening.
On the other hand, the Jamaica Gleaner has a really nice piece that doesn’t sound like it was ghostwritten by Tourisme Montreal.
