Montreal's secret World Cup hangouts by Erjy Kolaskin

Don't let NYE catch you with your pants down.

Don't let your friends steal the entire NYE spotlight from you.

Even football is big in Japan
NOW GOOGLE'S+1 > COMMENT | EMAIL | Bookmark and Share isn't one to miss hopping-on bandwagons. Considering how big the Football World Cup bandwagon is, we'd have to be complete fools to let this one depart from the station without us on board.

Ok, enough with the hobo references, what we want to share with you is actually useful, life-changing information. We've tapped into all our resources, dispatched all our starving and thirsty researches to the four corners of Montreal, with the all important goal of coming up with a list of the best places to support your favorite (or most hated) football team.

This is serious business and you should acknowledge it. The World Cup is huge; we have friends that have taken their vacations now just to watch the World Cup. On TV that is, not even the real thing in South Africa.

Before we jump to business, a little aside and shameless promotion: for all the real football fans out there, instead of wearing the same-old lame t-shirts, check-out the work of our friend and designer KF13. He has designed a special line of football shirts for the World Cup at; get one of his creations and you will stand-out from the crowd.

Here is our bible of the best place where you can catch a football game. These are the places with the most hardcore or just crazy fans, with the biggest drinkers and yellers. Watching a game amongst these people will make you understand why football is so big. Just make sure not to support the wrong team too vocally.

France: Le Massillia (4543 Avenue du Parc)
Knock someone out with a bottle of Ricard on the head, carry him to La Massillia, wake him up inside, and that person will be 100% convinced that he is somewhere in France. The place is so genuinely Southern-French, that if you drink anything else but Ricard, they will think you're an extraterrestrial. Be there early because the place gets packed with rowdy French. Too bad the French team is about to get eliminated.

England: The Burgundy Lion (2496 Notre Dame W.)
The Burgundy Lion is a self-titled English pub and has become the place in town for supporting the English squad. Good rock & roll, greasy fish and chips, Indian inspired curry dishes, tons and tons of pints and waitresses sporting thick suspenders will make you forget all your republican convictions and make you sing "God save the Queen". Once again, too bad Rooney and his squad have been playing like a high-school team.

Brazil: Les Bobards (4328 St-Laurent)
Les Bobards with its live music and Brazilian Sundays has won the heart of the community, and it shows when Brazil plays. During the game, wild supporters play tam-tams, providing a wild musical soundtrack to the football game. It definitely sounds better than the annoying Vuvuzela.

Spain: Le Club Espagnol (4388 St-Laurent)
Not far away from Les Bobards, is the famous and traditional Club Espagnol. More of a traditional community-room and restaurant, le Club Espagnol gets filled with wine guzzling supporters when the Spanish team starts juggling the ball. Go there early, eat a solid Spanish meal, order your red win bottle and wait for the action. If the Spaniards are at their best, you won't be disappointed.

That's it for now, the research ends here. Stay tuned for more secret hangouts to come soon; we're on the look-out for the Germany, Portugal and Greece hangouts (how about you give us a helping hand and post a comment bellow)

Enjoy the World Cup while it lasts, it's short and sweet, and all we'll have left after is to wait for the Halak-less Canadiens to restart their season.

It's your turn now. So speak-up.

Bilo je vrlo interes
Bilo je vrlo interesantno i zadovoljna sam s proizvodima koje smo napravili. Mislim da je radionica predugo trajala (bez pauze), pošto je gotovo sat vremena prekoračila navedeni tevlin.Vidmjiro je široko znanje voditelja, samo ne razumijem zašto nije htio podijeliti neke informacije (kao npr. gdje nabaviti proizvode o kojima smo govorili).
