You're going to be fine I think. There's always the Peel Pub if anything.

Hello and Happy Holidays!

My friend and I will be visiting Montreal for the first time, up late tomorrow evening and seeing Montreal for the entirety of the 28th. This thread is fantastic, a lot of help! I'm am extremely interested in the Planetarium and Science Center, and had already planned on seeing the Armada game on the 28th.

-Should I buy tickets in advance for the Armada game, do they tend to sell out?

-edit: Found the Poutine section of the write-up! Thanks!

My French is very spotty, I know some words and a few phrases, hope I can get by.

edit 2: I do have a Nordiques sweater. Would it be frowned upon or welcomed if I wore it?

Nevertheless, a Flyers fan and Penguins fan enjoying your city together, spreading joy and harmony all throughout the holiday season

Just so you know, the Armada doesn't play in Montreal. It's in Boisbriand, about 20 mins outside of Montreal, by car.

Returning from Montreal now, had an absolute blast. We scrapped the idea of going to Ottawa for our last day and stayed in Montreal one more night.

Armada game was a lot of fun. Level of play in CHL is something to behold when you're used to other options.

Went to Randolph Pub/Bar two days in a row to relax and play board games...good spot for the snowstorm yesterday

Poutine was great! Hate to say my first poutine experience was at a Canadian restaurant in Memphis, but it was. Still great though

Skated outdoors down by the St. Lawrence. I can't skate for **** and my new skates weren't sharpened, so I looked like a complete plebe out there, but a great experience nonetheless!

The people were very very nice, very willing to help a couple stupid Americans as best they could regardless of where their bilingualism stopped. My limited high school French got me by.

Finally, Schwartz's deli had THE BEST sandwich I've ever had. I'm from the Philly area, where loaded hoagies, cheesesteaks, roast pork sandwiches are fantastic...but I was absolutely blown away by that smoked meat sandwich. Perfection.

Fantastic city! I will be back, and highly recommend it. Merci beaucoup, Au revior!

Adult Hockey in Montreal

Hey all. I recently became an adult hockey coordinator, and am looking to build a great program. I've played adult hockey for 5 years in Kansas, so I know the ins and outs of what it's about. But I'm sure Montreal's adult hockey is a LOT bigger up there and is a lot more in depth.

So I'm curious...for those who play, what are the adult leagues like in Montreal? Any cool features about the league you play in that other leagues don't have?

Your best bet is to ask that question directly to the Montréal Hockey Québec league.

Hey everybody. My fiancé and I along with a few others will be in Montreal on March 10-14. We will be at the Red Bulls-Impact match. On Saturday the 12th, the Habs play Minnesota... If we can't get our crap together and get to the arena for the game, do you guys have a good bar that will show the game and have a fun atmosphere? Thanks!

**** the Red Bulls!

It's cool you visit our city for an MLS game. Sad it's not at Stade Saputo. Not that I don't like the Big O but the atmosphere is so much better at the SS.

I visited Red Bull Arena a couple years ago, it was great, except for Thierry Henry crushing my team....

As for the Habs game, there's a Station des Sports on Ste Catherine. It's usually full for Habs game so should have a good atmosphere.

Thanks for the advice on the bar... and thank you for your lovely sentiments about the Red Bulls! Haha... Yeah Henry was great... and it was a privilege to watch him. That being said, last year's Red Bulls team was better than any team Henry was on. He had so much control over everything. The entire playbook was run through him. Sure we miss him but the team we have is more exciting to watch.

Anyway.... I would love to see a game at Saputo... but the last few years the games were mid-week and it was impossible for us to get up there. I love Montreal. This will be my third visit. I have seen the Red Bulls in New England, NYCFC, Philly, DC, and Columbus. Columbus was a horrible drive.

I don't hate you guys... we have too much to handle hating DC, New England, NYCFC, and Philly... but I really hope Drogba stays with you guys. At least for the rest of his contract.

Discovery of the month: Chez Régine

One of the best places to eat brunch in a long time. A place where the locals go to eat. IT'S VERY BUSY and VERY POPULAR so expect to wait in my line.

You should be fine, but you should have your apprehensions about working with the public and will probably have a hard time finding work in that sector.


Give them a try.

SpringHill Suites Marriot is a favorite of mine. I'll be staying there for the second time in March. Very reasonable rates... especially with the current exchange rate. A king suite with kitcheonette is about 190 Canadian per night and 120 American per night. It's also in the Old City section.
