Little City Gems: 1

Now may be the winter of our recession, but I am on a gentle quest these days to find new and unique activities about Montreal that are equally gentle on the wallet as well as a nice change from watching whatever on TV at home.

Last night’s activity took place at The Yellow Door at 3625 Aylmer, just below Pine. A scant two hours of poetry, prose and spoken word readings in an intimate space by fresh and established (multi-lingual) writers, and there was even a moving a capella quartet. All for the sum of $5. I left feeling rather fulfilled and inspired to start a series of blog posts of neat things about the city.

    I write for the New Orleans Metblog. My husband and I will be in Montreal the first week in January. I am really looking forward to reading the posts here to find more fun, interesting, inexpensive things to do while we are in town.

    A warm pre-welcome to Montreal! There are tons of things to do in this city, and a lot of them can be accessed by just wandering about on foot in different neighbourhoods.
