    Hey everyone!

    My girlfriend and I are heading up to Montreal next month for a long weekend. Can anyone recommend must see sights/hotels that we should put on the list? I know she's gonna love "Old Montreal" area, so that's on it for sure. Thanks in advance!

    Club SuperSexe if only to gawk at the awesomely campy sign out front. And whatever you do, stay away from the poutine. I don't care how good it is, it's just scary. My heart momentarily stopped just thinking about it.

    My girlfriend and I will be going in an hour or so. It's long weekend here in Canada. We'll be staying at the W hotel. I'll let you know where we went on Tuesday. :)

    Whatever, don't listen to him. Poutine is good for you. Well ok, it isn't, but you can't go to Quebec without trying it. It keeps you warm in the winter!

    I will be heading out to Montreal in April. I am also interested in fun things to do. I will be out there for a little over a week with no work to be done.

    Ok, fine, try it, but only in SMALL doses if you ever want to enjoy travelling again. More if you are some world class athlete, have the metabolism of a jack-rabbit, or want to help you cardiologist build his winter retreat in Fiji. :p

    Well - if you've never eaten a poutine, you have to try it once!

    St Cathrine and Sherbrooke are both great streets for shopping and stuff.

    Oh.. I just remembered... I can't belive I forgot this.. Notre Dame Basillica used to have a light show. It's a really pretty place to visit, even if you're not into religious stuff...

    As far as the Poutine, it looks tempting but I might just pass. I use to have a variant of that back here in NY during my club days! We'd find the nearest Diner at 5AM and order a large plate of Cheese Fries w/Gravy. The fact that I still have a healthy heart is amazing. LOL!

    Notre Dame Basillica sounds like nice place to see.

    Bagels. St. Viateur? Are they that good? ;-)

    St Cathrine and Sherbrooke are good suggestions but I heard that Crescent St. or St. Laurent have a better vibe. Less touristy. Is this true?

    These are places that others have mentioned, tell me if they are worth it? Montreal Biodôme, Le Parc Olympique, Botanical Gardens, Mont Royal, Schwartz's, Plateau Mont Royal, Musée D'art Contemporain De Montréal, Downtown, Santropol, Café L'Utopik,Bonaparte

    I have a friend that lives in that neighborhood. I'd recommend walking through that neighborhood/McGill ghetto (isn't a ghetto, don't worry) to check out all of the really cool buildings.

    Looking at all those names for places makes me wonder, is Montreal the Paris of the Americas?

    LOL
