Our uncles say there is something to be said for museum visits and walking tours...While we agree there is a time and a place for Monet and blisters, sometimes all we are looking for is a new perspective on adventure.

For the New Yorkers trolling the internet and looking for anything something to do this weekend, our French-Canadian, border rubbing pal packs in a whole lot of laughs and even more good eats only 6 hours away (note: has been accomplished in less, speeding not encouraged but advised). While known for its unbearably chilly winters and snow-laden ski resorts, summer in Montreal has got it going on. Head up north soon, slide down one insane Slip n' Slide, swing across Pirate ships in the Old Port and eat your weight in poutine. Stay safe and get Canadian. Eh!
