Just when you think you've heard and seen it all, Montreal throws another curve ball into the game! Yes, you read the title correctly... Montreal's annual no pants metro ride has just occurred! This all began as a joke by a New York comedy troop that Montreal has adopted into their culture.
Basically, everyone takes the metro half naked from the waist down! Yes, I know that this seems pretty unsanitary and also pretty silly since it's the middle of WINTER, but hey! Montrealer's are that damn crazy! This event occurs for no pure reason. There is no charity event nor is there a hidden message. It's just something we crazy Monterler's think is normal to do once a year.
So, if you happened to be riding the metro during this event, be sure to scroll down because you might find a wild picture you took and posted on twitter or Instagram! It's times like this when everyone in Montreal comes together... and wears no pants!
Check out some of the hilarious pics from the 2017 No Pants Subway Ride below:
Can't make it to the Bas Saint-Laurent this summer? No problem. The city's latest culinary catch, Pincette, is landing in Old Montreal.
Led by Chef Khelil Ben Ammar formerly of Nelligan and Su, and "inspired by Montreal's vibrant culinary scene," the new Montreal lobster bar aims to "bring the East Coast experience to Montreal," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The décor sets the scene. The dining room evokes an elevated lobster shack with a "chic Montreal-European vibe." It even has charming lobster trap light fixtures.
Among the mouthwatering menu items are lobster mac n' cheese, a lobster roll, lobster poutine and a lobster club sandwich, as well as many other seafood treats and dishes (gotta highlight the cod fritters!).
In what can only be described as WTF, a video posted to Café Myriade's Instagram page shows an unknown individual approach a row of flowers planted in front of the cafe's avenue du Mont-Royal location and pull out a whole bunch of them while another individual looks on.
But the real question is: why?
For its part, the café did have a good sense of humour about this.
Café Myriade told MTL Blog that this happened at 3:45 a.m. on Monday morning. They didn't file a police report.
"We did replant what we could," they said.
"If it needs some filler we will gladly do some gardening."
