in the downtown core?

What's the best car anti-theft method/system/alarm ?
Thank you.

Is the club (steering-wheel-lock) efficient ? I've heard 2 sides of stories.

Preferably. We'll be staying in a hotel near Place Bonaventure, so it might be cool to walk to the restaurant. But if it's in Dorval, Laval, Lachine, etc. it's okay too.

Hey guys/girls, my gf and I are heading to Montreal for New Years, anyone with advice on a good lounge/restaurant we could go to for dinner and a few drinks? We're staying at the Hilton near Central Station.

Don't know if this is the right thread, but I've got some Cirque du Soleil tix for the Michael Jackson show in March in Section 115 row G and was wondering if anyone would have any ideas on how good/bad those seats are?

If I'm reading the seating chart correctly, the stage is in the Canadiens end and sections 104 to 110 are closed off

Anyway, just trying to see if we'll enjoy our seats

Thanks


***Mods or anyone else...don't worry, I'm not trying to scalp these tickets. I'm seriously curious about the seating****

Hey, I am in town tomorrow and was wondering whether there was a place in Montreal that I could go skating tomorrow with a stick and puck and just shoot around? I generally love going to the Atrium to just skate, but I have a real desire to just shoot around a little and I don't want to play in a full game. Just a little shinny or simply shooting around. Any ideas?

Great thread guys, thanks for all the info! I am heading to Montreal in a few days for the first time to see my first live NHL game. Most of my questions have already been answered by you guys but I was just wondering if practices or game day skates are open to the public and where they are located?

Wrong thread for that question, but he is way too much drama...for the Habs...

Awesome! Thanks a lot! Also, I am staying near the Bell Centre, what would be a good bar nearby to watch the World Junior final on Thursday night? A place that has a decent price on beer and a good atmosphere for watching hockey.

Looking for somewhere to take my girlfriend that doesn't include food, drink or going outside.

I don't care if it's pricey/cheap or anything.

Also, nothing hockey/sports related!

Preferably something at night and downtown, but anywhere on the island works.

I've already thought of museums, that's definitely an idea I like.

As far as museums go:

The Museums:

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal
McCord Museum of Canadian History

Skating at the Atrium could be an option Atrium 1000, rue De La Gauchetière.

maybe combine that with a massage in a spa:
Away Spa W Hotel, 901 Victoria Square (514) 395-3160
Ovarium 400 Beaubien Street East (514) 271-7515
Rainspa Place d’Armes Hôtel & Suites 55 Saint-Jacques Street (514)282-2727
Mann 449 Viger Street West (514)395-0707
Spa Eastman 666, rue Sherbrooke Ouest, 16e étage (514) 845-8455

hope this helps

I'm heading to Montreal for a conference next week. I was wondering what is the best way to get to Auberge du Vieux-Port from Montreal Trudeau Airport?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Depends on what you mean by best...

Best way: helicopter
Cheap way: Bus (747 - 8$) this will drop you about 10 minutes walk away from l'Auberge. You can easily find a taxi.
Convenient way: Taxi (40-50$)
Cheapest way: Walking, hitchhiking.

Thanks Frank! I'll take the 747 and then take a taxi.

Cheers.
