TL;DR A couple discovered a forgotten lottery ticket hidden in a book last week, making them a million dollars richer. Wait till you see what they plan to spend their riches on.
CJAD reports that the couplefound the ticket last week when their grandson came over and wanted to borrow some books to finish his homework. When he pulled out a book on Japan, the ticket fell out, reminding the couple of their purchase.
The couple bought the ticket on Valentine's Day last year, and it seems that they will continue to share the love with their winnings.
The Montreal pair plan to "spoil their five boys" and all of their grandchildren - and I'm sure that one grandson who is to thank will likely get a special something.
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."
