And that’s what I did when I saw that Armin Van Buuren was going to be playing at New City Gas in Montreal over Christmas. I made the most of my short time there catching a jazz show at Upstairs, bagels from St-Viateur, smoked meat sandwich from Schwartz’s, I warmed up at the Biodome and discovered a Barbie expo off Sainte Catherine Street.

What health board? But lo and behold… Montreal now has three.
