Today was no exception as Shirley and I went to the 5150 Sherbrook St. W. location. We were greeted by Eric in the traditional “Bonjour, Hi.” He patiently […]

Kam Do Restaurant

971 Decarie Ville St-Laurent QC. Cuisine Chinese, Cantonese, Szechuan, Sushi Maki. Nothing fancy. Simply good food at extremely reasonable prices. Frequented mostly by locals who live in the area, but I have traveled cross town for years to enjoy their General Tao Chicken. The open kitchen emanates cleanliness.

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. I would expect an event of this type anywhere in Montreal, Toronto, or New York City would have a $150 ticket price. And rightfully so.

OQLF

Quebec‘s language watchdog, the Office Québécois de la Langue Française, wants the retailers to change their signs to either give themselves a generic French name or add a slogan or explanation that reflects what it is they’re selling. I have an excellent suggestion for a slogan to reflect what the OQLF is selling. It is selling discouragement to mainstream companies […]
