Aloha again!

As a lot of you know, Montreal has a bran new tiki bar called "Snowbird Tiki Bar".
I know already a few people from the Boston/New York/Plattsburgh area + 1 person from Portland are planning a trip late summer/fall so I though I'd put it out there so that if anybody else want to join in on the fun, they would be kept in the loop!

In addition to visiting Snowbird, Jim and I (and the rest of the Montreal tiki crew) were thinking of doing a little shingding at out place. You may have seen on the "home bar" section of Critiki that we have a humble little bar in our apartment and we'd love to welcome visitors in it!

Let us know if you want to be part of the fun!

Just for organisation purposes and since we'd like to join you on the fun, these are the dates that we won't be in town : august 18th to 27th + September 16th + October 6th to 9th

We (me and my husband, Architiki) may be planning a trip to Montreal to visit the other bar that the Snowbird owners are opening up (and of course, re-visit the Snowbird too!). Apparently the new place is very "Conquistador Modern".
We'll keep you posted on our plans~

So L'Idole is a "sort of" tiki bar? MONTREAL IS NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE TWO WHEN TORONTO ONLY HAS ONE.

Now now, don't fight, you still have more tiki bars than entire sections of the United States.

We're definitely interested in an expedition north o' the border.

I'm pretty sure the only thing my little city has going for it is the battle of Plattsburgh War of 1812 celebrations. It's a weird time to be downtown because of all of the reenactors bar hopping.

Growing up in the south we never learned about the war of 1812, we focused on the war of northern agression. :oops:

In New England, you get them all. King Phillips, 7 years, Independence, 1812, succession, Spanish American, Mexican, Great, Second, and onwards.

As families move on, they forget the uncles and cousins. Some small towns try to remember, until the macmansions fill the ancient battlefields. Then they send their children off to the next.

Hey! On a less somber note, any skiers up there?

Winter is fast approaching. The only thing close to being vintage cool as vintage tiki is vintage skiing.

Not a skier but I snowshoe! I'm open to learning how to ski or snowboard this will be my 3rd winter where the magical white stuff called snow falls from the sky! I'm in love with the winters here! I like to use snow for my cocktails. :D

So do we have a general idea of when you fine folks would like to come up?
Also how many would you be?

A friend from here says they have a contact for an air bnb that could accommodate 6 people... I'll ask her the link and post it here!
It's Montreal's 375th anniversary this year so there's quite a bit of things to do around the city too.

Aloha from New England! The Queequegs have been throwing around dates ranging from next weekend through to November. If we ever get our act together we'll be sure to let you know! Are any dates better for you guys?
AtomicBettie wrote:

By my count, up to 11 Queequegs and significant others are interested at this point. I'm sure we'll number at least 6. Again, we'll keep you posted!

good to know!

Weekends are filling up fast for us so the sooner we know, the better! LOL

Jim now has a gig on august 12th (that could be cool for you guys to see mayyyybe?)
We also still have our vacations from august 18th to 27th.
If it goes into September, we have the 16th blocked off too.

Still waiting for the airbnb link but i'll post it when i get it. The only thing is that it,s a bit far from Snowbird and our place...
If you want to direct your search towards that area, you can look in the little Italy neiborhood or Villeray, Petite-Patrie, around Jean Talon or Beaubien metro. :)

Let us know if you have any questions!

Mahalo! I just realized I typed "late August" when I meant to type "late November." A lot of us have free weekends in Oct. and Nov. if we can't all meet up next month.

Oh no! I'm hosting our Chapter meeting that day! BUT: If there is any way to live stream the gig, I promise we will watch from the Pineapple Lounge. :thumbsup:
