Does anyone know if there is any good places that sell beads?  I'm going to Montreal at the end of the month because my boyfriend wants to go to some big car show (and I would love not to have to go to that!!) So as you can imagine any suggestions would be much appreiated!!

There is a vegetarian buffet restaurant there, the name of which I cannot remember,  but it was some of the best food I've ever eaten!  It was really expen$ive though.  Really, really expensive.

Boreale beer is really really tasty.  I wish we could find it here.

There's a bar on St. Denis as you go uphill that shows horror movies on Sunday nights.  I can't recall the name but it is a little hole-in-the-wall punk bar.  Oh, and the admission is free.

When I was there last July I saw Evil Dead: The Musical.  It was brilliant.

Brush up on your French as well:  although most people do speak English fluently, everyone will greet you in French, and it just seems polite to speak the language.

That's The Commonsal. I actually don't like their food at all, and it is really expensive. It's by the weight, and they use glass plates, so you're actually also paying for the plate! Not to mention the fact that they're a chain and arn't reknown for treating their employees well. I would just go to Aux Vives on St Laurent instead. Much, much better food, and it's vegan!

Yeh, I'm not a big fan of commensal either. The food is fine but sometimes it feels dry from having sat there too long. There are 2-3 dishes there that i LOVE though. I only go when I have to (if I'm with friends and they decide to go) and usually I get a small plate and just pack it all up because then I don't spend at much on the actual plate. Better yet is to get the stuff to go.

Les Vivres, however, is absolutely fantastic. The coconut bacon sandwich is so fantastic. Actually they all are. I have a friend who works there and he always makes me sandwiches extra special... man I miss being able to drop by to see him whenever.

Thank you for the tip!  The next time I plan to go to Montreal I will look up this thread.
