So far my best guesses have been Peel Pub or MVP but I was curious if you knew of others
Champs on St. Laurent

My friends and I are looking go fishing for the day. I've never been fishing.

Do we need some sort of license? Any good spots near Montreal where we can rent a canoe and fish? We all own cars so transportation isn't a problem.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I know its possible to do it from the st-laurents from some location around Montreal... But you really have to be a hardcore fan to do it, it would be like doing fishing in the Hudson river in New York... If you do catch a fish god knows what water was he surronded with.

There is hundreds of lakes at 1-2 hours of commute from montreal and many will offer great fishing experiences to pin-point one in particular is tricky for me since I've only fish when I was a child. Google Quebec, Monteregie region and fishing and you'll surely find some leads.

I just got back from my bachelor party in Montreal this past weekend, and while most of the weekends activities won't be mentioned, Les Pyrenees on Saint Paul remains on the list of my favorite restaurants. Never disappointed there.

I will be in Montreal on Monday.
I'm staying at a downtown hotel.
Where would be a fun place to watch the New Jersey-L.A. game other than a Cage aux Sports venue?

Thanks in advance.

Do not go to la cage. Try station des sports. My favorite sports bar in montreal is PJ's, bit out of your way, though.

Did I just heard on Antichambre that Scott Gomez will be bought out within the next 2 weeks? I never really trust RDS and l'AC.

Hey guys, I'm making a day trip to MTL one day this week with a couple friends, just morning till night.

Where do we have to eat/shop? I'd like to visit a bar with some great beers, any recommendations? Are there any must-do activities? Thanks for the tips!

Oh, I definitely went through that list before asking... and if I had time to do many things there, I would for sure. But on a day trip, I was hoping someone could give me the mustdo's.

Thanks for keeping that updated though, I'll definitely visit some of those on a longer trip there.

Hey guys, do you know a place (hotel/motel/auberge/whatever) where we can do a "sieste", like buying a room for 4-6 hours only for cheap (@Dtown MTL) ?

Thank you very much and have a great day !

Coming up to MTL at the end of the month. Have business in Burlington, VT but we want to drive up to and stay in MTL for a day/night. (seems like it's about a 2 hour drive).

Any recommendations on hotels/attractions/dining for someone who will be there for just one day? Seems like Old Montreal looks pretty interesting.

I know the OP has a list, just looking for some personal recommendations for a 35 year old guy and his girlfriend. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys.

What's the best hockey bar that's not a la Cage type place? I'm thinking more small, neighborhood, lots of old pictures covering the walls. I don't know how many of you guys have been to Boston, but think the Cask n Flagon or the Baseball Tavern before they got renovated. When they were kind of divey, had cheap beer, and mostly hardcore fans. THAT's the kind of place I'm talking about.

Also, any bars like that description which still have Expos stuff on the walls?

I'm gonna sound like a dick but since you're just asking for a general "what to do" honestly the OP covers pretty much all you need to start. They're good recommendations. But yes Old Montreal is nice. If she feels like shopping/walking, Sainte Catherine is fun.

Peel Pub fits what you describe I think.

Downtown has all the attractions needed for 1-2 day visit. You may want to check out just for laughs shows. http://www.hahaha.com/

Thanks although I guess I was more asking that out of the very detailed list of so many things by OP which ones would you HAVE to do if you were only in the City for 36 hours. Or in other words what's the restaurant you have to eat it when you're in the City, etc.

We got a hotel in Old Montreal and will likely check out a lot there.

Hey guys,

I'm visiting Montreal for the first time for a few days and I'm staying at the Holiday Inn on Viger Ave. I was wondering if there is anywhere to park nearby (long-term) that won't cost me $20 a day like the hotel valet will?

If you like meat, I would suggest Au Pied de Cochon. It is probably one of the best restaurants in the country. It is not for the faint of heart. You have to make a reservation though.

Close to Parc La Fontaine, so a little walk through the park and then a nice dinner at PDC would be a great evening IMO.

You've got to give us more of an idea of what you like, and your budget.

Click here for some restaurant recommendations earlier in this thread.

20$ a day in downtown mtl is about the cheapest you will find
