Camping is fun, you set up a tent in a remote location and spend a few days roughing it. But what's the point of going camping if you're just going to go to a campsite?
Camping was all about freedom and the call of the wild. But for some reason, most campers seem perfectly happy huddling together in a crappy campsite. How are you supposed to run away from it all when you're surrounded by a hundred other people who had the same idea?
That's not called camping, that's just called "sleeping somewhere else".
If you really want to escape it all, you have to get somewhere private. And there's nothing more private to do that than to rent a private island.
Now that's what I call seclusion.
Here are 10 private islands you can rent that are less than a 3 hour drive away from Montreal. They come included with a chalet as well just in case you suddenly decide you feel like sleeping under a roof.
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."
