Irish Embassy, April 29th

Join us for a "reception" this Thursday at the Irish Embassy on 1234 rue Bishop.

Not to be confused with the Embassy of Ireland, this one is a real Irish pub!!

Join us today, 22 April, at Bily Kun (354 Avenue Mont Royal Est)

A cheerfully hip energy pervades this extremely popular Plateau Mont-Royal bar, rated as one of Montreal's top 10. The decor is thoroughly unique; it's sort of a "Prague cafe" theme accentuated by ostrich heads poking out of the walls, high ceilings and excellent music (live during the days, DJs every night). Youngish journalists and other left-of-center professionals enjoy very reasonably priced microbrews (including the full line of Cheval Blanc beers), and it's usually packed. The name is pronounced "Billy Coon."

Rising Above Cancer

In loving memory of every cancer patient, family member and friends who have lost their battle with cancer, and the ones who continue to conquer it! Put this on your page for 1 hour if you know someone who has or had cancer. I pray for the cure of cancer. Many won't copy and paste this. I did. Will you? ♥ April is Daffodil Month.

Happy Hour at LE QUARTIER (8 April)

Following the closure of The Manhattan Bar last month, it appears LE QUARTIER will also be going through some changes. Business has been tough for the restaurant/bar, which offers $3 martini and mini burgers on Fridays. Those familiar with the Le Quartier scene will recall that most of the 'action' occurs on Thursdays only. And die-hard Q92 radio fans may have noticed that Q92 radio did not broadcast live from Le Quartier last Saturday.

Hence, Le Quartier will soon change ownership, and we expect it to close anytime.

Although clearly not a recent favorite due to fierce competition from other bars in the area (Le Confessional, Vauvert, etc), Le Quartier was once the regular venue for Thursday Happy Hour...

I look forward to seeing you at Le Quartier this Thursday, 8 April 2010, as this would probably be one of the last 5 à 7 there.
