Interestingly enough, that sounds like what they call "pizza" here. Except the most common version involves tuna, mayo, processed cheese, tabasco sauce and (believe it or not) corn. Anywhere you go, this could be what they call "mixed pizza." Travesty.

BTW, salmon sushi is the BOMB. Or I suppose I should call it sashimi, since that is what raw fish by itself is actually called. Fugu (puffer fish... I think we've all seen that Simpsons episode) is quite awesome, but dangerous and expensive outside of areas where it's caught. As a lesson to all those out there, "sushi" is raw fish strapped to a rice ball by a nori (seaweed) "strap." Makizushi (rolled sushi) is the round thing wrapped in seaweed, with rice and a bit of raw fish in the middle and cut into slices or wedges. Bon appetit.

Sushi choices are limited, and you get what you pay for in them. Kashima on Greene ave in Westmount has gotten a mile better lately and is cheaper than Miso or Kaizen. If you really want to lay out the bucks for something special in the suhi world, Jun I on Laurier is a true haute cuisine experience. The tuna tartar is out of this world.

On the value side, Le Jardin du Panos on Duluth (N side, 2 blocks E of St. Denis) is a really great bring your own wine Greek restaurant. Small menu, packed place, huge terrace. The food is excellent and cheap. The BYOB brings down the price even more.

Unless, of course, you were talking about sushi everytime over greek food. In which case, I personally can't agree. Sometimes you just need your food to see the inside of an oven or frying pan. I'm not too concerned with my health... yet.

OT:Nightwish at Metropolis in October

Anyone excited???

Iv purchase my tickets a few month ago, before hearing the new singer.I dunno if you guys were able to get your hand on their latest album "Dark Passion Play", .Well imo its good, not bad, but Anette doesnt come close to Tarja. The first song of the album...she try to push her voice ...and god its annoying rather than be satisfying when tarja was pusher hers.

I dunno, maybe Nightwish is another group who will fall because they lost their lead singer, and iv very scared to hear the old song with Anette Voice

I was waiting to hear the next album before... which means I won't have any ticket for sure.

I don't know, I like her voice... but I wouldn't want to hear her singing Kinslayer for example.

Even tho I hate Nightwish, as a band, they made a good choice by kicking out Tarja of the band. Why? Because she was not 'with the band'. She had her own 'clic' and she was never with the rest of the band except to play music.

Still... power metal like this sucks, I used to like it, but after 5-6 months, you realize it's all the same thing each songs.

Is it the first time you are going to see Nightwish live?

Such a painful subject for me. I was keeping track of their North American tour a few years ago when it got canceled due to visa issues. I checked the site over the next few weeks as they said they would announce new dates but no announcement came. A few months later (days after my birthday) I saw on their site that they had been in town on my birthday.. obviously I was pissed. Now, they are finally coming back, but I don't like the new singer. At least, not the 2 tracks that were available on the website.

The price isn't too bad, but still, it's a major disappointment.

Lafleurs is the best fries in town and great steamies.

If anyone is in the Pierrefonds area, Luna Pizza on Gouin is the best in the world.

So me and my buddy will, in fact, be making the trip up in February for the Flyers/Habs game it looks like, spending Friday night, Saturday and Sunday and then leaving that Monday. Couple questions:

1. It's pretty obvious tickets to the game are sold out-what's the best way to get a pair of decent seats without having to spend way too much?

2. We're under America's legal drinking age but over Quebec's, so we're clearly going to indulge in that. What are some good local/regional beers to try out? Where to get 'em?

3. Also, cigar stores? Can't get Cubans here in the States.

4. Since the Flyers and Habs are playing Sunday night in Philly, where can we go to watch the game? Maybe not a dedicated sports bar per say, as we're meeting up with my sister that night and she's not exactly the bar type. Any reasonable restaraunts that have a lot of TVs?

Any answers are appreciated. Thanks in advance, fellas.

Where to get 'em? you can get local beer in depanneurs but not all of them. One of the most popular ones is Unibroue beer (al lot of different kinds), Boreale, St-Ambroise

3. Also, cigar stores? Can't get Cubans here in the States. Walk on St-catherines you will find one

Maybe not a dedicated sports bar per say, as we're meeting up with my sister that night and she's not exactly the bar type.

You can go to bars that do their own beer and that are pretty good like Brutopia which is (I think) on Crescent but very near St-Catherine/Guy.

OT: Montreal Nightclub scene

I was just wondering if someone had inside sources with the Habs to see where the bulk of the players go after the game to have a good time or a beer. Just let me know.. I will be in town for the home openner. Just let me know.
