Only YUL is an airport - the rest look like train stops. I don't know what YMY is... there's no airport downtown. Everything comes in through Trudeau, though. I wouldn't worry. And if someone suggest landing somewhere else, be very, very suspicious.

Thanks Tina, I will only use YUL's code then!!

I was thinking Hurleys, because it has a comfy inside with not so loud music so we don't have to sit and stare at each other....plus if it's nice there's an outdoor terrace.

I was thinking Hurley's too - they have that secluded room off on the left which is usually empty. A good place if we're a lot of people. Plus it's just a great place - great music, great beer, very laid back and very central. Being able to talk without shouting is a big plus, too.

I've never been to St. Sulpice. If everyone's staying downtown, St. Denis street may be a little bit more of a trek - not a lot more, though.

Hurley's is a good spot. If we decide to go somewhere else later, there're plenty to choose from nearby.

But, how are their martinis??? Maybe someone should test them out before we all get there just to be sure they're good ones!

Hmmm, people don't usually go to Hurley's for matinis... If martinis are absolute musts we should perhaps go to Jello Bar.

Erm... even if they had martinis, I don't think I'd try them...

Ah! Fabulous! Their martini menu is huge! But sometimes the music sucks. Hey - we'll just have t =o go to more than one bar!

Sounds like a plan is formulating... My back-up drink is a simple ol' vodka tonic w/lime slice and no ice. Not too many places can screw that up too badly. Martini has been mentioned several times and no Anne? Boy, her sense of "smell" must be out of whack or her hearing is failing!

Hello!!!!! Give me few minutes...it is cloudy over here now so the antennas are not working properly! I do have a backup drink...vodka and cramberry or vodka and orange juice...or vodka and vodka...a couple of bars sound good to me!!

BTW Isa, how long are you going for? Thursday thru Sunday...Friday thru Sunday? or thru Monday? I've been checking prices...anywhere between 350 to 400 right now. I will get my ticket when I get back from my trip (just in case, you never know)...

I PM's Joz, we will be sharing a room since the Mr's of our lives arent coming.
