MOB

MOB Written by Catherine-Anne Toupin Translated by Chris Campbell Directed by Andrew Shaver With Susan Bain, Mathew Kabwe, and Adrianne Richards Continuing thru March 29 This jewel of a play is a reviewer’s nightmare.

Aux Vieux Duluth

Revisited Again Au Vieux Duluth 1997 boul. Marcel-Laurin Ville St. Laurent, PQ. Once again we returned to the place where there is never a parking problem and the greeting is always cheerful.

Kam Do Restaurant

971 Decarie Ville St-Laurent QC. Cuisine Chinese, Cantonese, Szechuan, Sushi Maki. Nothing fancy. Simply good food at extremely reasonable prices.

With plenty of metered parking spots, there […]

New Years Eve Party

https://www.playground.ca/entertainment/new-years-eve-2020#nye What better way to bring in the new year? Great food, vintage wine, and live entertainment.

However, Playground Poker is providing all this for a mere $39.00 per person. […]
