Got got back from a very short trip to one of our favorite cities, though truth betold we will be back for a couple of nights in January on our way to a long delayed return to Quebec City.
But I did want to make a couple of observations.
First, terrific Christmas values, at least we thought so, but please don't be seduced by "Black Friday", especially when your Thanksgiving is a month earler. When mentioning it to several people someone pointed out that with the number of US companies operating in Canada it just become adopted. Maybe so, but it still struck me a odd to see it in Montreal.
Second, the Montreal Casino, with all the renovations, is terrific. And yes, I would still be saying this even if I didn't come out a little bit ahead. The facitilty is state of the art, and unlike any I've seen in the States with the multiple gaming floors. We aren't big time gamblers in any sense but this was fun, whether gambling or not. A must see for any visitor who likes the slots or gaming tables.
And finally, a shout out to bogwoppit and big thanks for recommending AM 800 for the regular traffic updates. I was a little concerned what with all the repairs going at the Champlain bridge. Made it over and back with no problems. I recommend it to any visitor driving north.
Now I just hope it is fully replaced by 2018 as promised.
That sums it up for this trip. We did our usual things as well plus I ate too much rack of lamb, but boy was it great!!
Happy Holidays everyone!!
