David Carr on the music scene in Montreal: “Montreal's vaguely socialist and communitarian politics, along with the city's reputation for hedonism, has produced off-the-grid parties in lofts and musician-run clubs, and plenty of opportunities for new and challenging music to find an audience. On an absolutely frigid recent Tuesday - a quiet night in the quietest time of year - three no-name bands were creating a racket at the recently opened Le Divan Orange, en Anglais, merci. Hundreds of fans jammed their puffy coats in various corners. Even though Canadian liquor stores were on strike and the cigarette packs featured vivid portraits of diseased lungs, people were consuming both like recently escaped convicts. The bands shouted into the din, and the audience - mostly - listened.”
I bet Chicago would top a similar list of elevated rail, and would include Vancouver.
Evidently they will also publish the recipe online.
(A commenter speculates that Brad Wheeler ghost-wrote the article for Alexandra Gill.)
Dublin, Helsinki, Sydney and Montreal round out the list.
Not an urban legend.
