D.A.D.'s Bagels shuts its doors in NDG for Dollarama expansion
D.A.D.’s Bagels on Sherbrooke St. closed permanently Sunday because, owners say, its lease is not being renewed to make way for a neighbouring expansion of the Dollarama dollar store.
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).
Okay, Montreal, you get one cool, pretty thing today. Fake, projected graffiti down by Saint-Laurent metro.
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.
[A] rival cat café just across the street from Carré St-Louis is giving Marty a run for his money. He claims the owner there, Youssef Labib, copied his idea. Labib, for his part, says he had been looking to create a themed café for a couple of years. Also, Labib technically registered his business with the province first.
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
An overview of what happens when a less than competent “CEO” of a incredulous “new media” operation takes questions from twitter.
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.)
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???
“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.”
This whole #AskMTLBlog debacle deserves a Part 2. If only for that ‘we haven’t had the time yet.’ Also, you heard the guy:
