Oct YULblog – Why Montréal?
The question posed to most of this month’s YULblog attendees (though unclear) was a fill in the blank:
“I didn’t come to Montréal for the _____. I came for the _____.”
or if you are from here: “I’m not staying in Montréal for the _____. I’m staying for the _____.”
Pierre: Né à Montréal, les montréalais(es)
Patrick: job, les terasses
Isabel: scene, lifestyle
François: pour la proprieté, pour les femmes
AJ: money, Plateau music scene
Myriam: complexe desjardins, les stationnements parallèles
Daniel: the nightlife, and everything else, the subway sound (tou-dou-dooou)
Vero-B: to test my ability to answer random questions in a bar after several pints, to meet cute yulbloggers :-)
Julien: né à Montréal, cheap (inexpensive) lifestyle.
Austin: taxes, lifestyle
blork: didn’t stay for the woman, I stayed for the women (and now I’m staying for the woman).
Martine: poutine, poutine au foie gras.
Michael: les glorieux women.
Frank: baseball, great local brews.
It was a good size crowd for a cold rainy night. Feel free to let me know if you’d like to make any corrections. I wasn’t really clear with the question and I don’t think everyone signed in. Those of you playing at home can also join in with your responses.
See ya next month.
