Les Freres Sakaris : Multiculturalism Manifested

Posted by Julie M. / November 25, 2013

A few years ago in Barcelona, I was prattling on about food with a young Catalan, telling her I had an intense craving for spanakopita. I asked her if she knew where I could find some good feta and phyllo. She gave me a blank look. She had never tasted Greek food. No tzatziki, no souvlaki, not even fast-food gyro. I was really, really surprised, considering Spain's proximity to Greece is a hell of a lot closer than Canada, as well as the substantial community of Greek expats in the city. Come to think of it, I don't think I saw one pita joint during my stay. It was then that I realized how much I had taken for granted the multiculturalism in North American cities, and how, in Montreal particularly, this cultural interaction is manifested in the diversity and availability of a plethora of international cuisines.

Ask Hua Li #1: Starting from the bottom...

Posted by Hua_Li / November 20, 2013

Hua LiHua Li is Midnight Poutine's sex writer. Ask her an anonymous question in the box below and she'll answer it in this column, appearing every other Hump Day (aka, Wednesday).

Wow guys, what an overwhelming response from all of you! Your questions these past two weeks have been endless and interesting and I'm really excited about all of the dimly-lit corners this column is going to help us explore. That being said, I really wanted to take a full disclosure moment to say that while I will be trying to answer any and all of your sex questions, I might not get to everyone every time. Think of it as a tease, because if your question isn't at least generally covered in one of my answers I'll get to it in the coming weeks. Now that that's out of the way, let's get to the good stuff...

Jessie Ware At the W Hotel: Review

Posted by Pamela D. / November 11, 2013

It's a Tuesday night at the W Hotel, and the downstairs bar is buzzing with a typical assembly of the well-heeled and chic. Brandishing fifteen dollar cocktails and swaning leisurely around the small corner stage, the only unexpected element in my evening so far is the total absence of any conversation whatsoever about the exclusive performance everyone is apparently gathered here to see: an intimate and acoustic sample from the debut album of the U.K.'s up and coming Jessie Ware.
