Montreal, Saturday November 10th

Since Bman and Big Provolone's visits to our city do not coincide it appears there is a need for consecutive weekend off-lines. It's a tough life, but I'm in and will look after the arrangements. Who else is interested? So far

Big Provolone (2)
Steve8 (2)

I am not sure but I'm a tentative, either one or plus one.

I am a risk-taking decision-maker, Steve8. What can I say? Cool

Steve, I have limited access to wine in Montreal but we were planning to bring a 2001 Beaucastel and a 2003 LLC if that works for everyone

Bp, if you're going to be coming and going for the foreseeable future you could consider getting a small offsite in Montreal. There are a few places available around town. I know of one in Old Montreal and the SAQ holds as well in a distinct location. Just throwin' it out there.

Steve8 and all, I will have to bow out of this one. I had already booked Saturday night with a wedding so I won't be able to make the offline. My apologies to all and hope to see you next time.

Unfortunately, my Saturday afternoon is going to be spent raking leaves. Frown

I know you're not a huge fan of noisy power equipment, steve8..... Razz but with that yard I'd be using an industrial strength leaf blower.
