    Ah, be sure to see the SugarLoaf! Though it's ideal in the Wintertime (but still beautiful in the summer).

    I believe they have a festival this time of year (music, events, etc).

    And the Notre-Dame Cathedral is gorgeous.

    lg go build me a house or something

    um you ever tried poutine? If you want to eat poutine...you must find a greasy spoon...(they make the best there)...one well know fast food greasy spoon is called "La Belle Province"

    And well keep in mind about 95% of things are in French (its the law)

    I'd say try the adult book stores...there seems to be alot of those.
    The only thing that separates the men from the boys...is the lessons they learn.

    You're speaking of poutine, right?

    Canada - where for some reason it makes sense that a woman can't get totally nude on stage, but can brush right against you in a back room, and where you can get sausages and burgers and 2 a.m. after leaving the club cause the guy's got a grill setup in the parking lot.

    Don't ask - used to have to tote comic book artists around to shows and being from NYC they didn't drive. Thus, my car and me with four guys all using the excuse of "I need more reference material." Joke was on them, the dancers hit on me more than them.

    Well Indian Rocks Beach is a town just south of Clearwater Beach and west of Tampa. Here is a photo of my town

    and here is the actual location


    My new wife and I are up in Quebec for our Honeymoon. The M-O-L bought it for us. I have our real honeymoon trip planned to goto Fiji. And yes this is our first time to creebeck.

    what is the M-O-L?

    Okay so I am assuming you are committed to going to Quebec City. The reason I say that is that, well if you want to go for a honey moon, you go to Montreal. You stay at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel downtown at the corner of Mansfield and Rene-Lesveque. Beautiful hotel. Then you take your wifey out for some fine French food at Chez la mere michel on Guy street between St-Catherine and Rene-Lesveque. Or you could take her to Les Nuances, the 5 star restaurant at the top of the Casino de Montreal. Further more you could have gone to visit the Botanical gardens, and well just slummed it in montreal and shopped and what not...plus where you would have been stay there are always festivals going, and the one right now is the world renoun International Montreal Jazz Festival..

    In Quebec City, i hear it is quite beautiful...I hope whomever did this got you guys a room at the Hotel Frontenac. That hotel (like the QUeen E Hotel) are part of the Fairmount chain (which used to be run by Canadian pacific, long story)....but anyways that hotel is situated on the plains of abraham. The final battlefield in which Montecalm of France and Wolfe of England both faced off, and both died...leaving to this day who was the victor of the war...as well it could have had a long effect on the traditions of quebec...

    But yeah..thats all...if i could help more I will do my best


    my favourite joke about hurricanes...i always forget the comedian but I know he is from Texas, and on stage he drinks and smokes and speaks deeply... "Remember, in a hurricane/storm....its not that the wind is blowing.............its what the wind is blowing!!! If every you work out every day and have a six pack and you get hit by a flying volvo....i dont think its gonna matter much"

    Another one: "So I am on this plane from ottawa to montreal...one of these small little perpeller planes....and well all of sudden one engine stops and the captain comes on the speaker saying how they lost oil pressure in one engine, but everything will be alright. The guy next to me was in a paniac, and well he grabbed me and asked 'how far do you think we can get on one engine'........................and I replied, to sight of the crash"

    Thanks for the advice on Montreal, although we are in QC already. We are here in the Hotel Frontenac as I write this. Quite a beautiful hotel if not really expensive :::whistle:::. We are going to go out exploring today to see what this town really has to offer. This both our (wife and I) first time being this far north.

    Again thanks for the advice.

    Oh....... M-O-L is supposed to be M-I-L=Mother In Law

    Hmm, musta been either other local ordinances or times changed, to my understanding they can't strip to nothing in a table dance. At least not in the clubs I was at.
