Wrestling is much more of an artistic performance than a violent sport, at least the kind of wrestling you see on TV with the muscly men in spandex. Chairs can get tossed about and a lot of intense staring may go down, but at the end of the day, it's all just a rehearsed spectacle. This Saturday, Montreal will host its own wrestling party-show, with a feminine twist, put on by the League of Lady Wrestlers Montreal.
St. Laurent's La Salla Rossa will become a wrestling match this Saturday as the fierce women who comprise the League of Lady Wrestlers Montreal put on their fundraising and recruiting show, in collaboration with Slut Island. Don't think of this as your standard wrestling event, as these ladies do things a bit differently, reforming the inherent over-the-top violence of wrestling into a truly artistic performance.
Wrestling is meant to be a little comical, so don't think this will be a "high brow" art-wrestling performance. Plenty of comedy and camp will make up the performance, as the wrestlers keep out the negative aspects of violence and wrestling in favour of a more uplifting form of entertainment. An open call will also be made to any interested individual who wants get involved in Montreal's League of Lady Wrestlers. Who knows, you may be hooked after seeing the show.
All are invited to the show but do note this is event will be a queer safe space. No discrimination of any form will be accepted, so just come ready to have a good time and you'll be totally fine.
You can also expect to see two bands, a comedy show, and several DJ sets throughout the LOLWM fundraising and recruitment show at La Salla Rossa. Doors open at 9pm on Saturday, December 6th, with the show beginning at 10pm. Get more details by heading to the listing on MTL Blog's event section!

Montreal sure is one hell of a city and honestly I can't imagine what it would be like to move away from it! It may happen one day that I leave this beautiful city but there are so many things that I would miss! Down below is a list that composes of all the superb things one would miss if, or if they already have, left Montreal.
Beauty comes in all shapes, shades, and sizes, and the fact that Montreal's got such an awesome mix of different people pretty much cements every Montrealer's status as highkey gorg. So go ahead and rock your beautiful life, and get away with the following things in Montreal.
1. Crowding in front of the blue wall at Diperie to get the perfect Snapchat pic
Okay, it's a little shitty to worm your way to the front of a super crowded metro platform - especially if you've gotten there with one minute before the metro's set to arrive, essentially giving the middle finger to anyone who got there before you. But you've got things to do. You've got places to be. Time is money. I get you, friend. I get you.
True, Montreal is full of legit Habs fans. But some people don't actually feel the love; some people just straight-up fake it. Don't worry if you do, though. You'll only get called out on it if you unintentionally say something nice about the Bruins.
5. Creeping a free slice of pizza after clubbing on St. Laurent street
Yes, people work in the area. Yes, there are tourists trying to take pictures of the water fountain in front of BMO. No, that's not stopping you from stumbling out of Terrasse Place D’Armes a little too day drunk and enjoying ya life.
Oversized T-Shirt and denim shorts? Super figure-hugging dress? Stilettos? Flip-flops? It is all good, friend. You can pull off whatever, and will probably inspire a trend if you toss something on that's truly off-the-cuff.
Comfort can come in many forms, though we all know the sure-fire way to get anyone feeling all warm and comfy is with food. Certain dishes just make you happy, filling your mind with memories of bygone happy dies while filling your belly. Few dishes are more comforting to your body and soul than burgers and macaroni and cheese, so just think the delicious double-whammy of comfort to be tasted when the two are combined, a flavourful combination you can experience at Burger Royal on St. Laurent street.
Appropriately titled the "Mac Attack," Burger Royal's combo-burger features a 3 or 6oz beef patty (slider or regular sized) topped with a healthy dose of mac 'n cheese, bacon (essential to all good M&C) and ketchup. The result is a burger that will instantly take you back to your childhood, even though you'll have to deal with all the calories in your present-state of adulthood.
Burger Royal doesn't only put mac 'n cheese on their burgers, as the resto's menu features a whole "Mac Bar" complete with 7 different kinds of M&C. You can get a standard, caramelized onion, bacon, hotdog, and even a very-enticing Mexican mac 'n cheese with filled with chilli, cheese sauce, guacamole, and jalapeños.
Be sure to head over to Burger Royal'sFacebook page and instagram feed for more mouthwatering burger-creations, or just head over to the resto above St. Laurent and des Pins and munch out on a Mac Attack yourself.
McDonald's piddly (and always floppy) little basic bitch breakfast burritos have absolutely nothing on the newest morning Mexican-ish meal you can get on St. Laurent street. Hearty, healthy, and fairly priced, Aux Vivre's latest vegan creation will start your your day off right, and you won't even miss the bacon.
Aux Vivre, St. Laurent street's most magical vegan eatery, unveiled their new breakfast burrito yesterday morning on Instagram, which made us instantly regret eating a dumb ol' bagel for breakie.

Priced at only $4.99 with a coffee (espresso or filter) for the rest of the month, get your mouth at this burrito in the morning, your body and taste buds will thank you later.
