Here at Midnight Poutine, we occasionally (um, not exactly weekly) like to distract you from the drudgery of your workplace with a few fun and quasi-SFW links. I'm making an exception for this particular OCT - you can't link to squat from this post.

I want you to get up, mumble some sort of half-assed excuse, and make your way for a "15-minute" break at Frénésie de la "Main" (aka Main Madness), the plateau's second yearly street fair.

There are dogs - both kinds. There are juicy, tangy, sexy mangos on sticks. There is $2 beer. There is also $2 chow mein which, contrary to what the cheap bastards on Stillepost would have you believe, is a fine deal. I prefer the greasy goodness of le Gourmet d'Orient, since you asked.

And, I know you don't want to hear it right now, but this is It. Summer's last hurrah. Slather your still-pasty self with SPF 270, get out there and soak it up.

it is amazing! sausages and mangos are two of my favourite things! i will even face some of my least favourite things to get them: crowds and being overwhelmed by too much stuff that is maybe not so good really. but but sausages and mangos! thank you, montreal!

it's funny, i'm normally very buggy about crowds. but there's something about street fair that makes it not only acceptable but enjoyable to squirm through the smokey hordes. sometimes i even talk to strangers.

What's with you people liking street fair? It's such an easy thing to be grumpy about -- the crowds, the giddy commercialism, the rampant thongs/lower back tattoo combos ... Oh, I get it, how controversial of you to like something you should obviously dislike. Jerks.

you know, it's getting very ugly, your jealously of my lower back tattoo.

My jealousy isn't as ugly as your tattoo.

Valuable information. Fortunate me I found your web site unintentionally, and I'm shocked why this twist of fate
didn't happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
