So I don’t have a big long winded post here today to share, but I wanted to write something while everyone else is sleeping in around here (road trip rookies!). It’s 11:30 Atlantic Time and 10:30 here. I’ve been up for an hour and a half – they haven’t budget yet.. hmm.. maybe I’m getting old. Don’t older people get up at all hours of the morning?
Anyhow what a fantastic city Montreal is. Anyone who follows my Facebook page knows we went to the Montreal Canadiens vs Tampa Bay game on Wednesday and I tell you, what a highlight that was.. it was opening night for the Habs and I don’t care where else you’ve watched if any NHL games before.. you cannot beat the atmosphere in the Bell Centre when the Habs hit the ice. It really is electric and so much fun – every hockey fan should experience it once in their lifetime.. at least! I’ve been fortunate enough to have done it 3 times so far.. once when I was a kid at the Forum, and twice now in the new Bell Centre.
Besides that we went to old Montreal last night and met up with Liz’s brothers while we were there – I have to tell you, last night was just as much fun as NHL night! First we bought ourselves some IMAX tickets for the Hubble 3D show – then we walked around town a bit and took in the architecture and sights of Old Montreal. Wow.. it was so amazing, everything from the gargoyles on top of the building to the interior door handles inside are just amazing. I made the stupid mistake of not taking my camera downtown either. Oh well, I had my trusty iPhone.
Getting to the best part though.. we had dinner last night at this Steak and Fries place and get this…. they let us bring our OWN wine in to drink it! Well this was pretty much an open invitation to get boy-band drunk.. so we headed to the liquor store and got 4 bottles of wine to accompany our dinner then bought some more beer and chatted back a the hotel for a bit.. an excellent time.. I love this city!
