O’Thym & Montreal F1 Grand Prix Trip Day 1 *pix heavy*

bonjour.

we went to montreal last weekend to watch the f1 grand prix.

friday morning before the driving to montreal, we went to pork belly’s fave dim sum spot Hei La Moon to get some dim sum.
i think hei la moon is the best dim sum place in boston. the place is huge; you never have to wait for seats even on weekends.

going to clubbing tonight but pork belly did not bring any dress shoes. we headed to the mall. pretty much everything in montreal is in french. i was pretty surprised since canada is still an english speaking country.

din din time!!!!
we decided to go with french since we were in canada. our choices were limited because a lot of places were fully booked and some required formal attire. chris picked O’Thym which was totally delish. the restaurant was very casual and BYOB which means they do not serve alcohol/wine but you are welcome to bring your own wine. we were the only table that did not bring wine because the liquor stores were already closed at that time. all the diners spoke french as well as the waiter. thank god it wasnt a tourist spot! i wish restaurants in boston are BYOB, but alcohol is super profitable i doubt any restaurants would wanna do it.

Cee Lo Green was performing live at Arena and we also saw the fighter GSP.
