Question about a town south of Montreal.

Hello, I've been planning to visit Montreal in the coming year and cheering for the Habs for a game. My reasons for visiting were just for entertainment but now I have new reasons as well. I learned about some of my family history this weekend and my grandfather was born and raised in Clarenceville, Quebec. My great grandparents apparently lived their full lives there and are now buried there. Long story short, my dad ended up being born and raised in upstate New York but was telling me about my great grandparents having a dairy farm in Clarenceville back in the day. I would like to visit this area as well. How far away from Montreal is this town? Anyone ever been there? How is it?

Thanks for any help.

About 1h from Montreal. The only thing you'd want to visit in Clarenceville, is your grandparent's house and... the post office.

I dunno... This place looks classy and fun.

It's a bit South of Saint-Jean sur Richelieu, where they have a hot air balloons festival every summer.

Bah, who really wants to see Yvette get naked?

It doesn't sound like my idea of fun.

Zoom on the front door where it says 5 a 7. You see a blue car in the window, but that car is nowhere to be found on the street.

I've been in clarenceville a few times since I have family near this place and I went to this place Chez Diane a few years ago and I had a blast the girls were mostly all pretty hot there was no old ugly b*tches even if the place is in the middle of nowhere go for it great place, great atmosphere & hot girls. They do everything you want also if you are into that kind of stuff.

That's the reflection of the google car taking your picture.

Agreed. Sadly, Chez Diane is probably the only interesting thing in Clarenceville.

But it's one nice.. err.. special bar. Bloody americans never stop crossing the border to enjoy it.

There isn't much to do in Clarenceville, honestly. It's not THAT far from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, which is a pretty nice place. From St-Jean, you aren't very far from Chambly, either. Those are the two "nicest" places on the South Shore IMO. I guess it depends on the season. During spring and fall, St-Grégoire can certainly be interesting, due to the whole "maple" industry and the apples.

It's kindof a "season" thing. There's a great beerfest in Chambly.

But there's absolutely in Clarenceville, aside from your relatives, and a VERY crappy strippers club (Chez Diane) -- well, it seems it became a little better than it was back in the days, according to a poster above.

Roughly 45 mins to get to Montreal, if there's no traffic jam.

I'll offer to be your personal translator, but you'll have to pay me a dance and possibly some back room play at Chez Diane. Anyways, just putting the offer on the table, think about it, sleep on it, let me know.

Many of the dancers Chez Diane actually don't speak french, most of them speak english.

Don't fall for it, bud.

Yup, but I am sure they don't have trouble making themselves understood by the american clients.

Not to forget the neighbourhood of Clarenceville has more than its share of english-speaking residents. Any worker at Chez Diane who can't communicate in english won't last long.

As opposed to, let's say, Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu's strip clubs, where a dancer could do very well without knowing a scrap of english.

How the hell do we have so many regulars of Chez Diane in here? If I knew HF's meet and greet were held there, I would have came!

:-)

I lived in Saint-Jean when I was young, and let's just say that this bar wasn't particuliary looking when it came to use my false ID

Funny, I kinda lost interest in titty bars when I turned 18. I guess the thrill wore off...

There aren't strip clubs anymore in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. The 10-35 is actually in Carignan.

Well, last time I went there was like 12 years ago. Just before turning 18. It's was absolutely ... dreadful. But it seems to have changed a lot.

Chez Diane went down hill ever since they made having teeth and being able to communicate in English as a prerequisite

Where does Chez Diane rank compared to Rigaud?

Rigaud use to be a regular stop for me from Northern Ontario on my way to NY. We liked the scenic route.

Yes the amount of canadian flags in the village indicates that there must be a big enough english community.
