stuff to do

laika

best place to finish your slides (cafe, bar):laika

Cheap Eats:

famous montreal smoked meat (better late when line has vanished; or check out dodgy-looking place across the street, it’s good too): schwartz’s

great, tapas-style texan food (note the low predictability of ‘texan’ given the previous word): icehouse

amazing japanese food, but long waits: kazu

close to kazu, great dumpling place: Qing Hua

awsome chicken (low key fast-food, but great–if you call 30min earlier you’ll wait much less): romados

nice pizza, very close: amelio’s (milton street)

amazing pizza, not so close: magpie

Not so cheap eats

Many. Try to peruse chowhound or websites like this to find the good stuff. Much easier to find than cheap places.

Bars, Cafés

three nice microbreweries ordered by distance from conference venue:
benelux
reservoir (reservoir is nicer and has amazing tapas)
dieu du ciel

nice wine-bar, very close: pullman

great wine-bar and tapas, but not close: buvette chez simone

stuff to do

two nice galeries in old montreal:
dhc
yves laroche

three good museums:
cca
macm
mbam

not to be missed:

walk up Mount Royal–it’s nice.

famous bagel bakery, open 24hrs (only selling bagels and stuff to put on them, not a place to sit down and eat): fairmount bagel
