Christmas is only a day away

And in case you haven't finished all your Christmas shopping, do not despair, here are some tips on quick and dirty Christmas shopping hacks.

In case you're wondering what the Lindsay Lohan reference at the beginning of the article is all about, then consider the cover of Playboy magazine bellow, featuring the starlette:

Personally, I think the cover is pretty lame. The photo is not nice at all. But apparently, the issue is flying off the shelves of magazine stores.

Getting gifts for Christmas is like looking for cops at a Habs riot

Maybe my metaphor is a bit exaggerated; finding cops at a Habs riot is probably even easier than getting proper Christmas gifts. Usually, I just turn to the Mirror or any other newspaper to get my sources for gifts, but it seems this year we've been left on our in Montreal, no one is publishing direct instructions on what to buy for Christmas. Hopefully this will change this week, with all the papers coming out on Thursday. Until then, do you best for your shopping, and don't buy too many useless things. Keep it to the absolute minimum.

New spots and new scandals

There is this whole are of Montreal that is really cool, and you probably know it: it's called the Mile End. And part of the Mile End is the north end of St-Laurent (or the Main as we know it in Montreal). There are tons of good coffees, shops, restaurant and bars that make that area alive and amazing to hang out in. Snack and Blues, Cafe Olympico, Cafe club Social, the St-Viateur and the Fairmount bagel shops, etc, etc, etc ...

And then there is also Bar Waverly and a restaurant named Le Comme Chez Soi. Both these places are fairly new, and both have their own original feel, adding some spiciness to the north end of the Main, in the Mile End (a lot of Ends and Ms in this sentence :)

On a different not, there has been a new political/moral scandal that erupted this week. now with Pakistan and an actress Veena Malik that posed with little clothes for an Indian magazine, sporting a tattoo of the Pakistani secret services on her arm (read on BBC here).

Now is there anything more ridiculous than getting pissed off on innocent pictures like those below? I guess the editors of FHM India scored a big hit with this "provocative" magazine covers.

Who would have thought Japan would come to Montreal?

No one, but that's the reality. With Imadake, a new Japanese style bar on St-Catherine and Awtater, Montreal has been blessed with a trully fun and authentic feeling Japanese bar.

It's defintelly worth your visity. Japan definetlly has an interesting culture, and if you can't afford the flight to Tokyo, you can at least afford a couple of pints at Imadake. And if you drink more than a couple you might really start believing that you're in Japan.
