Trip Report Visit to Montreal

Jump to last reply

Born and grew up in Montreal. Left almost 20 years ago but have returned several times for various events. Last week for a high school reunion.

Stayed at a relative's home near downtown so no lodging.

Observations.
Surprised to see so many pay phones on the streets.
Biggest expense was parking around the city at $3. per hour.
No right turn on red almost got me a few times.
Surprised to see more stop signs even at mid-block.
Some streets that went from left to right now go from right to left.
Montreal is still beautiful in the right weather. And we had it!!! Sunny and 80 degrees (F).

Some old favorites.
Picked up Bar-B-Ribs. As good as I remembered. But nobody eating inside. Is the West Island Bar-B open?
Picked up Schwartz's smoke meat sandwiches. Topped off the trip.
Doubled down at Moe's on the West Island across from Fairview.
Disgusted to see that the Prince Authur restaurants appear to have hit hard times. One of my favorites is still there but many on those two blocks are closed. What happened?
