Montreal’s a fabulous place, but gatherings remain dishearteningly sparse around here. So, proposing a remedy, Senso and I would like to invite you to sip Fin de Siècle and nibble on Bhaji onions (or something) at one of the city's finest brewpubs this coming Victoria Day weekend.

Yes, we still name our holidays after English monarchs up here. Don’t ask.

So join us Sunday, May 22 at 8pm in front of

L’Amère à Boire
2049 St-Denis

For the out-of-towners: the pub isn’t far from the Gare Centrale bus station, and both Senso and I can each comfortably accommodate an overnight visitor.
