Since it is Easter weekend, I was wondering if there were any Roman Catholic churches that did services in English or should I just brush up on my French? Thanks for all the help and I'm excited for the trip. Trying to figure out what places to eat at. I'm thinking I need to hit up 3 Brasseurs at some point. Is there a bar/restaurant near the Bell Centre that is good for pre-game meals/beers? I have to look at a map more to totally plan my trip, but I appreciate all of your input.
notre dame cathedral is close--churches like most of montreal you will find it french first which to my wife and i add to the ambiance of being a habsfan. you have to do ste catherines. great little shoppes and places to eat. we like mr steers not because the food is great but waitresses are usually dressed in jerseys on game day. ruebens is a trendy place to eat and catch a drink. if you want to pick up stuff from team store go there early because gametime is a MADHOUSE. the only time i ever saw the canadien crowd really give fans a hassle was bruins. been to a habs rangers game with buddy wearing a rangers jersey but he was treated great [unlike going to devils game]

chez cora on drummond has good breakfasts. between rene levesque and ste catherines.

wife and i do ny thruway all the way up into montreal. have passports ready. we stop off exit 7 [i think] above albany for lunch it has cracker barrel 1 way and panera bread and other places opposite direction.
