Any recommendations? Anything I should know in terms of new "technologies" in glasses?

I was pretty satisfied with my last ones from Antoine Laoun
It all depends on what you're looking for...

Antoine Laoun has a good reputation in the business for having the most amazing choice of frames. If you want to stand out with unique frames, go for Laoun. You will bust what your insurance is giving you because of the frame value.

If you want the best lens and frame quality with the best warranty on the market, go to an IRIS store. They are expensive because they ONLY sell high-end products. So you pay more but you get more too... This time you bust the insurance because of the high quality lenses.

Independant optometrists will offer you anything you want for exactly what it's worth. What you pay is what you get. Good products, fair price. You can get something pretty decent for 300$.

If you want to go for the cheapest, and if that's your only criteria, go to Costco, Lenscrafters, New Look, Fahrat, Luc Doyle, Sears or any other big optical chain. But keep your expectations low. You won't have to spend more than 150$, and even then, that could be for 2 pairs.

I assumed you were younger than 40, otherwise you might need progressive lenses.... and it's a lot more expensive.... everywhere!

Yah good guess , I need single vision lenses. Its increadible on this forum how you can always find someone who knows what thy are talking about. Heh.. Thanks for the insight.

I actually don't mind paying extra from my pocket to get better glasses.looks like you covered all rye angles though. Thanks again.

I'm visiting Montreal the weekend of 8/22. Can someone tell what the hot-spots are for nightclubs (preferably after hours)?

After hours:

Downtown Montreal:

Circus Nightclub
Two rooms, one techno/house, one hip-hop but a chill room, not a gangster hip-hop room
http://www.circusafterhours.com/

Stereo Bar, depending on your sexual preferences. I don't go there, not my crowd. http://www.stereo-nightclub.com/

Eastern Montreal:

Millenium/MP3
http://www.milmtl.com/
My personal favorite. It's a club until 3am and then the other portion of the place opens and it's an afterhour with two rooms, one techno, one hip/hop reggaeton. It's not a beautiful place, but it's a place with room to dance, good music and good people.

North of Montreal:

Red Lite in Laval
http://www.red-lite.com/
Two rooms, but the hip-hop room is a little bit gangster, I don't like it much. But the techno room is good.

Beach Club in north shore
http://www.beachclub.com/weekend.html
An after-afterhour, or a day club. Very nice place, with a beach, activities and good looking people.

For normal Clubs, the nice places are for techno/house people:

Club LaMouche
On Saint-Denis, my personal favorite, but sometimes the crowd is a bit young

House Nightclub
http://www.housenightclub.ca/

Light Ultra Club
http://www.lightultraclub.com/

Tribe Nightclub
http://www.tribehyperclub.com/

Opera Nightclub
http://www.operamtl.com/content/

But the most important, check the events in Montreal, to know where the best DJs area. Sometimes it's worth it to go to so-so club if the DJ is good.

And also, Montreal Guest lists, such as:
http://www.montrealguestlist.com/

To save a few bucks and put them on drinks.



And check Montreal Guest Lists

St catherines, or St Laurent? Thank you
Ask Michael Ryder.

:-)

Clubs, like meat markets? Crescent street and St-Laurent.

Hip Hop clubs? Hum, Orchid on St-Laurent as well.

Strips? Wandas, Chez Paré, in downtown, or Solid Gold, on St-Laurent, but way north.

Don't tell my girlfriend about this post. :-)

OT: Room wanted

Hi,

Im looking for a room to rent from the start of September to around June.

Prefer something close to downtown.

Am 21 year old student coming over from England to study for the year. Huge interest in hockey, both playing and watching.

This will probably amount to nothing but thought it was worth asking.

Thanks.

I just want you to know that 600$ for a room to share with three other persons is wayyyyyyy too much, you can have a nice place for three and pay 400$ bills included. And that in the heart of the Plateau

you can find a pretty decent apartment for 600$, although not downtown but still a nice one.
Anything more than 300$(including expenses) for a room is just waayyyy too expensive.

wow i'm on a role here.

could anyone recommend any folk art galleries in the montreal area?



forgive me if this sounds like a dumb question. i'm very much interested in heritage architecture (i know, i know, there is lots of heritage in montreal) could anyone suggest perhaps the highlights? also very interested in newer heritage buildings, like 1950s and 1960s era.


how about farmers markets? where are the best ones?

best place to eat blue margarine?

thx thx thx

Your own link refers to Montreal in the "Cities with a Critical Mass" section, but I've never heard of it or noticed it here.
