Help critique/amend my itinerary (LONG)

eatme | Oct 22, 2003 10:47 PM

I am planning a special long weekend for two in Montreal next month...Any comments/suggestions about my plans would be appreciated. (I've read almost every post on this board as prep.) I've marked an * where I would like comments, especially...

Thursday:
arrive from airport 5pm
check-in Auberge Bonaparte
drinks @ Altitude 737 (for view, mainly)
dinner @ Au Pied de Cochon
return to hotel

Friday:
breakfast @ hotel
Botanical Gardens- visit bonsai collection
*Lunch- would love to find a creperie
Visit marche jean talon & pick up wine for dinner
sightsee (as weather allows in Nov. We are from the Northeast, but cold is cold)
*Dinner @ BYOB resto Suggestions?(1st choice was Poisson Rouge, but fear that it will be too much seafare for my companion as I'd like to go Anise on Sat. night.)
play? symphony? Late drinks & jazz? Late movie?

Saturday:
breakfast @ hotel
*shopping (books?, good deals? not versace) (I'd usually go to a museum, but I'm not crazy about any of the montreal offerings)
*Lunch- something reasonably priced and good, but not so heavy as to spoil dinner...considering Boris Bistro; L'Expresse; somewhere I could get moules and my partner could get meat
*Afternoon sightseeing/activity
Dinner @ Anise (I'm wanting the surf 9-course w/wine)

Sunday:
breakfast @ hotel
*late morning activity /bagel snack
*good send-off lunch. (considering passe partout...) I get to go back to Boston, my poor companion heads to the midwest for a month.
Travel to Airport.

Thanks!
