MONTREAL’S TOP SOMMELIERES

The quotient of beautiful women in Montreal seems even higher than in my native Brazil. Especially during these warm months, the beauties are everywhere in Montreal: sipping beer on terrasses, biking, walking their dogs and, of course, waitressing at restaurants.

DINNER IN THE SKY: MONTREAL

Dinner in the Sky, the “ultimate patio”, is exactly what it sounds like: a full, gourmet dinner served 50 metres above Old Montreal. We sent our brave cameraman to investigate…

BIXI TOUR OF GAY VILLAGE, MONTREAL

With spring finally ours (thanks mother nature!), it means that Bixi is also becoming a daily activity of Montreal locals. Bixi is the public bike system phenomenon that has swept Montreal off their feet and onto the many (500!) kilometers of paths.
