Andy Warhol!

I just have my cheese imported from quebec, make my own fries, st-hubert poutine sauce and stuff my face.
As for the line at the deli if there is a long line you may be excused from not eating in but try to make a point of going and soaking up the place. Eat the pickle. Yes to Warhol, 'cept Jeremy answered aaaaages ago. Props to ya though, just 'cuz you know.

Also: I ****ing love that they've got no-attitude BYO at restaurants in Montreal. We went to this Italian place (just off St. Denis I think) and bought a nice bottle around the corner beforehand. Such a great meal.
zut alors indeed! not sure if a montrealer would be caught dead eating a madagascar or mexican poutine though! a fast food joint in japan called first kitchen had poutine on their menu. it was...interesting. tj, there are plenty of faces to be poutine-stuffed here.

well .... I might have to have a massive bag O ' Cheese sent then.....
As Poutine is such a staple I'm sure alot of people have mixed it up fusion style. Not sure if I'd wanna base a business on it.
Have a great time, say hello to all the Montreal girlies.

Nice Japanese place on Prince Arthur...but it would be the last place in the world your Japanese friends would wanna be.

Are you riding fixed? I may be up for a short jaunt. I have dinner plans.

Bah. On second thought, I should be a good little worker bee and stay in. Hope you find a riding buddy.

actually, i was totally looking at that! no explanation of his name though.. hmm, richie hawtin is playing ricardo villalobos..looks like a battle. i'm going with a fairly large group of techno heads so i'll be at their mercy. of course i'm looking for any excuse to take off and eat. mmm, smoked meat, bagels, hotdogs and poutine. i think i'll need to sneak into the 75km ride for heart to burn off the calories.

Are you selling them? Because if you are, they're worth 1 dollar and you should sell them to me.

Yeah, I've heard the name many times but I've never heard his stuff. He was the drummer for Godspeed You! Black Emperor though, which has always piqued my interest... apparently not enough to actually do much digging though.
