??After parting ways with Bob, Ryan and I went to check out the Montreal Beer Festival showcasing over 300 beers. ??You pay $20 for a souvenir mug and some tickets, and off you go! The place was packed with university students. ??Ryan had beer and I, of course, went for the food.
We’ve had fries a couple of times here and they are quite notable. ??I can’t describe it but it’s got the consistency of mashed potatoes when you bite in to them. ??They are definitely not kennebec potatoes or ones that I’m normally used to in Vancouver. ??When I ordered my poutine at the beer fest today, I saw the guy scoop a pound of some white solid fat in to the deep fryer to re-fill it. ??I suspect it’s either lard or duck fat. I wish I didn’t see it.??
After a few rain showers and some more beers, we retreated back to our hotel lounge. ??I found this amusing. For you Seinfeld lovers, I found the Maestro.
