Here I am already with another monthly update…
As mentioned last month, the Montreal HRC closed Sept. 27. I visited the cafe for the past Montreal Pinathon event and it was a great cafe! The staff were a lot of fun and very friendly and the cafe had a great look with the 2 floors. Rumor is that the cafe may reopen in a smaller venue, if one can be found. One can’t imagine that there will be a better location than where it was but perhaps a small cafe might be more affordable during the lean winter months.
I’ve been asked to create a page for the bottle openers collection. For all you who just started collecting these gems, let me just warn you: There are hundreds on them! Little did I know, until the CD of pictures arrived from Carmen, what I was getting into… Anyway, look for this collection to be published to the website in the next couple of weeks.
Pictures page has been moved to Flickr, you can check ’em out here:
If you visited the new Las Vegas cafe and would like to write a review of it, please send it to me and I’ll post it the group blog. Or if anyone would like to review their local cafe or one they’ve recently visited, drop a me an email.
