MONTREAL JAZZ FEST 2011 TICKETS ON SALE

Even though the 2011 Montreal International Jazz Festival doesn’t kick off until June 25, there’s reason to pay attention now: tickets for Robert Plant, Peter Frampton, Sade and several other actual jazz musicians go on sale March 12…

FREE THINGS IN MONTREAL: MARCH

Let the festivals and their related free events begin! Not that they ever stopped – not even winter can halt the arts in Montreal. But now that it’s March and the days seem to suddenly be brighter and longer (and slightly warmer), our enthusiasm for socializing also sees a considerable jump. We’re on our way to spring, and what better way to celebrate that fact, even if it does snow again, which it will, than by showing our smiling faces in public spaces…

FOOD SHOPPING FOR FERREIRA CAFÉ WITH CHEF ROBERTA SUDBRACK

What’s the first thing famous chefs want to do when they visit a city? Check out the markets, of course. And with top-rated Brazilian chef Roberta Sudbrack, in Montreal to cook at Ferreira Café, it was no different…

WHAT’S NEW AT THE SOCIETY FOR ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY

For all its old-world charm, cobbled streets, culinary traditions and party atmosphere, Montreal still manages to keep a eye on the future – specifically when it comes to international collaborations between technology and the arts.

THIS WEEKEND IN MONTREAL (FEBRUARY 17-20)

Despite some recent speculations to the contrary, this weekend’s festivities prove that rock n’ roll will never die – whether in music (Bon Jovi’s still kickin’), provocative theatre and dance, death-defying circus or in the culinary arts, where a rebel yell makes for a flavour sensation…

TOP 5 MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS FOOD EVENTS

I`ve been covering the Montreal High Lights food festival (known now as the Wine and Dine Experience) since it first started a decade ago. That first year, we ate our faces off and the guest chef was the father of contemporary French cuisine, Paul Bocuse. I went to his cooking class at the ITHQ and we made poached lobster. And that`s about all I remember, after all the wine pairings…

MONTREAL’S ARCADE FIRE WIN GRAMMY

The Montreal band not only took home a Grammy last night, they took home the biggest one of the night. Their album, The Suburbs, was named Album of the Year…

FREE THINGS IN MONTREAL: FEBRUARY

Montrealers love free stuff, not because we’re cheap, of course not (we love our luxuries, from wine and cheese to spa days on the St-Lawrence), but because we love a good party populated by a variety of potential new friends, lovers and entertaining bon vivants. Hence our well-known, year-round fetish for festivals…
