Valentine's day in Montreal
This week-end you will all have to suffer through the dreadful St-Valentine's day. That is unless you take our humble advice.
And our advice is simple: don't do anything. No lame chocolate, no boring dinners, no heart shaped greeting cards.
What is this Valentine's Day anyways? Seems like a cheap commercial ploy concocted by some higher-marketing-powers, hungry to get back into your wallet after the joyful ride they had for Christmas.
The truth is, we don't need Valentines. Any day could be a day for celebrating your love for another human being. So instead of rushing to Garde-Manger for a romantic dinner, stay at home, download couple of Family Guy torrents, cuddle and watch them with your tender-half. Who knows, you might even get lucky.
That is it, nothing more. We won't tell you about classy whiskey bars to bring your date to. We won't share the secrets for the most-aphrodisiac restaurants to go to. We try to do these things every week here at Montreal-Clubs.com. But not this week; we're going on strike, we refuse to feed in the commercial machine.
The best Valentines I've had were the one where I drink one on one with my best buddy at Gogo Lounge. The place was empty, except for a few couples pretending to be interested in one another. Everyone else was out on a date, everyone else but use. And we just had our pints in peace.
Love doesn't need a celebration; it already has much more than that.

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