  1. Rocks & Co, I'm putting together a bachelor party for 15-20 people, scheduled for Labor Day 2006. The destination is Montreal and the prospect is a little overwhelming. I'll need to come up with places for at least two group dinners and a brunch on Sunday. I would prefer to find private rooms and prix fixe menus, so we can monitor costs better and not mortify the locals. I don't really know where to begin. Any help is welcome, even if it's simply a good place to do some research. Also, feel free to PM me with any activity suggestions. Merci. Alex
  2. My husband and I are heading up to Mont Tremblant in Quebec next month for a week to celebrate our anniversary and I am wondering if anyone has dined up there, and if so, any suggestions? Also, anywhere within within 30 miles is acceptable, we will have a car so that will be no problem. I realize it is a touristy area, but am hoping to find something romantic and special. The bad part I hear is it is also spring break time for Canada schools so I am kind of deading going up there. I think reservations may be a necessity.
  3. Going to the 1st day of the US Open Quals in an hour or so. I just looked at the drawer sheet. At 11am, on adjacent courts, which can both be viewed by standing in between, are matches featuring Felix A-A (court 4) & Denis Shapovalov (court 5). I know where I'll be heading.
  4. The Group of Six (G6) existed from 1975-1976, and included France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdon, and the United States. The Group of Seven (G7) first existed from 1976-1997, and added Canada. The Group of Eight (G8) existed from 1997-2014, and added (then kicked out) Russia. The Group of Seven (G7) has existed again since 2014.
  5. So, I was watching this pre-concert lecture by Glenn Gould, recorded in the late 1960s. After four minutes, he turns to go and play Beethoven's Tempest Sonata, and the host comes on briefly to introduce the piece. I'm thinking to myself, 'I know this guy, but who is he?' before suddenly blurting out, 'Oh my God, it's *Alex Trebek*!' I get a Brownie Button for this one!
  6. In 1999, Nunavut was carved out of the Northwest Territories, and is roughly the size of Mexico. In case anyone is planning any trips, the capital city is Iqaluit. This thing is massive:
  7. This is really an interesting geographical trivia question because very few people know the answer. I've never once asked it at a party, and heard someone get it right. 1. Great Bear Lake (31,500 km2) 2. Great Slave Lake (27,200 km2) - The Great Slave is also the deepest lake in North America. Both are contained entirely within the Northwest Territories. These are the 8th, and 10th, largest lakes in the world, respectively. Next to Russia, Canada is the largest country in the world, so it's easy not to know its obscure geographical features, especially in the northern provinces. Inc
  8. InstantPot users, do you have any favorite recipes you've been using? I'm still very new at this and enjoying it but haven't got a lot of things to put in our regular rotation yet. We've done crock-pot cooking before, but the pressure cooker is very new to us, and we like it for the time it saves. Also, how do you keep food from sticking and burning? We cooked a honey garlic chicken that was very easy and we all loved the taste, but each time we've made it, some of it has stuck and burned. We followed the recipe and set it for a particular time - should we be setting it on "Poultry" inst
  9. Over the past decade we have traveled often to Vancouver to experience a magnificent city and especially its culinary delights. We haven't been there is a few years but are planning a trip for later this year. We have tried most of the "name brand" restaurants, such as Lumiere, C, Cru, Rain City, Villa del Lupo, Bishops, etc. with a variety of results. Do any recent DonRockwell visitors to the city have suggestions for newer restaurants that they would put into the "don't miss" category? Thanks! David Missert Washington DC
  10. I am planning my annual Stratford, Ontario theater experience and this summer it has gotten out of hand with the addition of a side trip to Toronto to see Lord of the Rings: The Musical plus a trip to the Shaw Festival and Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. I'm pretty confident in the Stratford part of the program after seven years and eight trips -- just point me toward Boomers and the Church and I'm happy. I haven't been to Toronto since 1999 and I don't recall any amazing food then. I think we'll be there for 1 dinner and 1 brunch. We might have an early dinner after the theater so po
  11. The date besides Félix Auger-Alissime's name isn't the year he went on tour; it's his birth year. At age 16: * He's the youngest player in the World Top 800 (currently ranked #749) * He's the youngest player ever to qualify for, and win a main draw match, on the ATP Challenger Tour (the Challenger Tour is just one step below the full-fledged ATP World Tour - sort of like AAA Baseball). * He won the Sopra Steria de Lyon in June, making him the 7th-youngest player ever to win a Challenger tournament. * He has won both the U.S. Open Junior Singles and Doubles titles.
  12. I accidentally got exposed to The Tragically Hip back in....the very early 1990s? I saw them play at a show at Hammerjack's as a part of, I think, an WHFS thing. 'New Orleans is Sinking' was the song that drew me in. I heard a few more songs over the years, but I never bought any of their albums or saw them play again, live. Then, a few years ago, my wife gets me a compilation of their work (Yer Favourites) and I love it! They are kind of rocking, kind of Canadia, kind of thoughtful, kind of twangy, kind of just good. "At the Hundredth Meridian" (1992) "Fift
  13. Going to be there later this summer and want dining (and other) advice. What say you all?
  14. The Souljazz Orchestra is another newly discovered band (for me). Their 2012 release Solidarity is a nice mix of afrobeat fueled funk with a couple reggae inspired tracks thrown into the mix. They are already promoting a new release called Inner Fire for February 2014 backed by a Canadian and European tour. Hopefully they will make a return trip to DC (Rock & Roll Hotel in 2012, which was before I discovered them...doh). Couple official videos up on YouTube: Ya Busta Bibinay Jericho
