Brother Steve, who has his finger on the pulse of Montreal culture, scored us tickets to Good Night, and Good Luck — the new George Clooney-directed film about Edward R.

We spent today running about the city in our rented Chevy Cobalt: started off in the crazy chaos of the Saturday morning fashion outlet craze on rue Chabanel, ate lunch at Boulangerie Andalos (the single best sandwich of my life, no exageration; thanks Elias Abboud!), made a quick trip to Ikea, and then drank multiple exotic coffees on St. Denis over an afternoon peppered with shopping for presents for the folks at home.
Tonight it’s a double header of exciting hockey action. I’m still trying to figure out why the “red line” is dashed rather than solid.
