    throwing fitness to the winds and pursuing unadulterated hedonism, you MUST, MUST, MUST eat at Au Pied de Cochon, the unambiguously most vibrant and authentic Montreal experience. You might also consider the Hotel Gault as an affordable, spacious, and hip boutique hotel.

    Will you be working while you're there?


    Jealous that someone finds him so hot they would fly him to Montreal to play?

    It clearly eats you up - you keep posting about it.

    I actually suspect your sad attempt to embarass him is having him laughing all the way to the bank. Hot, well paid and fun to be around!

    Good for him!

    My friends in Montreal love the Gay Village along St. Catherine St. For me it's only worth a night of cruising. And I don't like the area for my hotel.

    Our favorite area to Le Plateau, every part of it from the edge of the Latin Quarter to The Park Mont Royal(the main park). The Park is gorgeous for a run and hikes up to the top and view of the city.

    Le Plateau is filled with great cafes and pastry shops .....great restaurants all along Avenues Mont Royal and Laurier.

    As for the gay scene......the Whole City is GAY. Enjoy this special place and her beautiful people.

    At Au Pied, anything with foie GRAS. Poutine with foie GRAS. Steak tartare. Bison tongue. Guinea fowl. Boudin noir.
    Best place to eat with the locals. Vibrant. Fun. Hot people. Boisterous. Affordable.

    Here's another nice place to stay that is quite affordable with great balcony views.

    My favorite breakfast place is Chez José, corner of Duluth and l'Hotel-de-ville. The best gelato in the whole world is served at a place that makes it with maple syrop, rue Saint-Paul in the old city a few blocks West of the main square. But to be honest there is so much to do here, (arts & music, gay stuff & saunas, parcs, restaurants, etc), its hard to list it all. It depends on what you're into. Feel free to message me any time if you need any advice.

    I would suggest the Botanical Gardens -- they are near Pie IX metro station, by the Olympic Stadium. They are beautiful, and a nice peaceful refuge in the middle of the city.
