I just went through the archives here looking over BYO's, and it occurred to me that for a bunch of 'typical' Montreal resto q's the answers are all over the place - which leads to annoyance with the tourists who ask the same questions over and over and over and over. Because it means that there is no "One Thread" that can be used as an answer by the regulars here.
So in that spirit, I'm asking for what everyone thinks is the "definitive thread/discussion" on the following topics:
BYOW / AVV
Coffee / Espresso
While I can think of some other topics that could be helped by definitive threads, I think limiting this one to "For the out-of-towners" would keep it simplest.
