Had a great few nights in Montreal wrapped around an awesome Tom Petty show.
Station Ho.St was very underwhelming on this visit. Friday night between 6-9 pm there couldn't have been more than 10 people in the place besides us. No AC, so the place was like 40 degrees. The heat inside matched his Texas decor. Beers were typically solid, but even with my reasonably limited access to Fred's beers, I think there were only 2 on the lines that I hadn't tried before.
DDC later that night was jammed to the rafters. Love that place, but it reminds me of a trip to NYC. I love it while I'm there, but after awhile climbing over the shoulders of people and taking 20 mins to get to the bathroom drives me nuts. Still, though, part of their charm, I know.
Spent tons of time pre/post show at the BierMarket across from the Bell Centre. Nice to have ok beer options outside the Bell Centre. Food was really good, beer prices and service were not. Also popped into Benelux and the new Brasseurs de Montreal location on St. Denis.
