Montreal restaurant encourages vandalism in its establishment

    Imagine if your restaurant was vandalized by local graffiti artists in a trendy part of Montreal. That would be disastrous for a business owner. That is exactly what happened to “Le Speakeasy” in Montreal. It is discouraging for business owners to have their place of work vandalized. Nicolas Delrieu, of “Le Speakeasy” invited the graffiti artists back to sprawl street art all over the establishment. The restaurant is now called Vandale which is vandal in English. I really love the Banksy-inspired mural of Anthony Bourdain. Their phoenix slogan when you enter the site, “burn it to the ground” is ballsy for an eating establishment. Then again Vandale caters to a different type of clientele.

    Chasing rainbows

      I found this all hands rainbow made out of different colored dishwashing gloves at a local daycare center. The colors are a bit off, but the idea is great. If will all give a hand, things will be brighter at the end.

      Massive Montreal 5-Pound Poutine

        Montreal is known for both hockey and poutine. Now both are nestled under the same roof. You can watch the Montreal Canadiens and wolf down their 5-pound poutine called the “CHampionne.” If a stretcher is called out most likely it will not be for an injured player, it will be for a cardiac attack client after consuming this monstrosity. Better bring a bigger pair of pants with you. Your waist is going to need to expand a bit more.

        Poutine in a Pitcher

          While a picture is worth a thousand words, this pitcher is worth $22.00. Forget the beer, the cook decided to fill up the pitcher with poutine. Montreal restaurant, Medley Simple Malt, serves up this gut-stuffing decadent meal. I hope they have a long fork to reach down to get the remaining cheese curds. My stomach says yes, but my eyes are reluctant.

          Who invented peanut butter?

            Contrary to popular belief, George Washington Carver did not invent peanut butter. Believe it or not, peanut butter was patented in Montreal in 1884 by Marcellus Gilmore Edson. It takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter?
