Fuck No, Montreal

It's very European!

D.A.D.'s Bagels shuts its doors in NDG for Dollarama expansion

Hey Jay Baruchel, where the heck are you when we need you? Stop eating at Taco Bell and throw some of that sweet How to Train Your Dragon 2 money at D.A.D.’s. You’ll be a local hero (aka make the cover of The Suburban).

Retumble your faves! Use it to play Bingo! Turn it into a drinking game! Like, you could down a shot for every time you see a douche out with a guitar and–
Oh wait, you are dead.
You are already dead from alcohol poisoning.
You shouldn’t have checked your phone from Jeanne-Mance Park.

Okay, Montreal, you get one cool, pretty thing today. Fake, projected graffiti down by Saint-Laurent metro.

Here’s to getting out of Montreal this weekend! Far, far out. So far maybe you’re never coming back.
(Thanks for the pic, Sherwin!)
How many e-cigs do you think I can get for my old drum kit?
So, this exists. In a world without reason, consumer demand or basic awareness of trademark laws (aka Montreal).
(Stolen from Roo!)
Take that, independent arts collective! That’ll teach you to, uh… seek like-minded young artists navigating modern definitions of femininity and… spend money and time putting on a show at a small feminist gallery…
Sharpie owners and lazy art critics FTW.

A tale of two cat cafes in Montreal

Holy crap. It looks like Montreal is actually going to get not one but TWO cat cafes, possibly by the end of August (so, like, now?).

The best part: They are already at war with one another. 

Come on kids, with all the abandoned cats in this city we could have one of these places on every corner! It’ll just be that much more painful when they go out of business…

The #AskMtlBlog Fiasco

Some angel Storified the whole mess for your reading pleasure. (Though it really is worth clicking through for yourself, if only to see one of their photographers balk at being asked to photograph ‘drunk sluts’ right as they posted that story on ‘drunk girls.’ Oops.)

Eff you, Dollar Store. It’s August 23rd.
Shhhhh. He’s undercover.
(Thanks for the submission, Blaze!)
It begins… #saintlaurentstreetsale #deuxpairespascheres

As if you needed another reason to dislike MTL Blog today… Here comes this gem from them titled (ehhh) 10 Types of Montreal Drunk Girls (brahhh). With a little editing, it pretty much sounds like it’s describing victims of acquaintance rape. But don’t worry, it was written by a chick!! Possibly in exchange for Nutella amirite???

Relevant:

“I wanted to be a fashion writer but they would just send me to club events and told me to get ‘pics of drunk sluts’,” said one former contributor, who expressed reluctance to discuss her experience there, and noted that Lapointe and McRae were nice to her, “if a little douchey and insensitive at times.”

Cool answer, bro. But seriously, this just bumped up from Montreal drama to PR disaster. Can someone tip off Gawker?

This whole #AskMTLBlog debacle deserves a Part 2. If only for that ‘we haven’t had the time yet.’ Also, you heard the guy:
