I think it would be rude to refuse hospitality, right?

Perfect! :D

Any word from Primo, JohnnyDollar or Bargoyle? The Toronto crew is still going?

Also, we maybe have to get to Snowbird earlier than 6:30pm as there was another group at this time...i'll keep you in the loop.
Their reservation system is rather deficient for more than 6 people :S sigh

Señor Bargoyle +1 is confirmed.

Señor Vee sadly will be on the road and not joining us.

Earlier at Snowbird is fine! We'll get an early start from NH.

Alright! I finally got the reservation set... it's officially at 6pm!

I suggest you guys could arrive at our place around 4:30pm for the "welcome cocktail hour" and then we take the subway to Snowbird (it would involve a bit of walking... maybe like 15 min, total). We could also cab it...what ever you prefer.

Our address is :
7368 De Bordeaux st. (between Jean-Talon and Everett). Closest metro station is Fabre (blue line).
My cell, in case you have any problem finding the place, is 514-504-4087.

If you have any questions, ask away!

What is the best option to get over to your place? Taxi/Uber/Lyft etc.?

Obviously we want to ditch the car at the hotel since it is a bar crawl.

Yeah, that's what i figured ..so I'd say uber, taxi or subway would be best.
From downtown, i think you'd be looking at a 25$ ride (you can ask for a minivan to split costs by 6!)

I keep forgetting the subway.... if we're by Peel on the green line what's the travel time up to Fabre likely to be?

Do you think we'd be on the subway again later in the evening to get to other locations? I was looking at that unlimited evening card option.

we're looking at about 45 min but it's prety straight forward green line until papineau station and then the 45 north until Everett (one stop after Fabre Station)

I tried to join a map in here..not sure it'll work :P

I missed this thread completely until now. I would love to get up to Montreal at some point, but can't make it for this. Have fun and don't forget passports, enhanced drivers licenses and/or Nexus cards.

Unfortunately Prof. Pineapple let me know today that he will not be able to make it this time, so minus 1 on your count.

Not sure if you were even taking us into account, Ms Atomic but unfortunately Polly and me won't be able to get to Montreal this coming weekend as we had planned, 'cause we have had some family stuff come up. See ya's the following weekend in Toronto for the Halloween festivities though.

Oh okay, sad :/
I was taking you guys into account! Do you know if Shauntelle and Dave are coming?

See you on the 28th, I guess?

My husband and I are still coming. We may be a touch late to your place as the babysitter will be getting here at 4, we will probably be at yours around 5ish. Looking forward to it!

You'll for sure see us on the 28th at The Caddy. I'm DJing between the bands that night. If you are already in town, you should scoot over for a cocktail to the ShoreLeave for our HulaWeen thing.

I haven't heard from Dave and Shauntelle about Montreal except for what I've read on here, and it looks positive as far as that goes.

We so wish we were able to get over there this weekend. We had a car booked and everything and then found out there was a family thing that we weren't able to get out of on early Sunday afternoon. Will have major FOMO for sure!

okay good :)
The reservation at snowbird is at 6pm so we'll leave our place around 5:30... If you can't make it before then, you might be best to meet us there. It's 5-10 min away by car.
If you do get to our place early enough, you can park your car in our parking spot in the back alley (if there's no spots in the front). Our spot is the one with the big white garage and white fence with vines on it. It's in the alley between De Bordeaux (our street) and Chabot, near Everett.

We'd love to go but we'll be in TO for one night only this time...just an in 'n' out thing. :(
