It's not often that we close streets in Montreal. Usually it's for hockey riots or major "construction" work that takes a whole year to be "done".

Well, this week-end is one of those unbelievably rare exceptions. Starting from Thursday night, the whole of St-Laurent will be closed to car traffic, from Sherbrooke street all the way north to Mont-Royal street.

For three full days (from June 16 to 19), St-Laurent will be invaded by outdoor terrasses: any bar or restaurant that respects itself will have something happening on the street. Everyone, from B-Side, to Gogo, Ballroom, and all the way up to Les Bobards, and pretty much every bar in between, will be serving you drinks outdoors. Nothing like sitting outside in a pleasantly warm Montreal night. Our summers are short, so we like to take advantage of every last second.

In between outdoor bars, all the stores will bring their merchandise out on the street, hopefully put massive discounts, and then wait for you and me to show-up and buy it all.

And best of all, tons of BBQs pumping-out some tasty smoke, and all other kinds of food stands, will also invade the street.

There is no escaping it: there will be lots of money spent on shady-looking clothes, and tons of European sausages and beer will be consumed this week-end on St-Laurent. Try the BBQ in front of the two Hungarian butchers north of Pine Avenue. You'll be licking your fingers. Trust me.

This is what Montreal's summer is all about: street sales, good beer and finger-licking European sausages.

If you're not convinced, just check-out the madness on the street, you'll see it is much more fun than a Vancouver hockey riot.

Speaking of Vancouver hockey riots, have you seen the picture bellow? I'm sure you have, like pretty much half the world now. I guess they know how to riot in Vancouver too feels good to know we're not the only ones.

PS: Don't forget to try the Portuguese Piri-Piri chicken breasts, in front of the Vieille Europe store. You can't have sausages without breasts.
