Morning Brew: Nun's Island welcomes back Mies van der Rohe, Laurier drops Ramsay, Kahnawake gains a saint & Habs drop to last

Posted by Andrés / February 28, 2012

20120228_morningbrew.jpgA few years back my boss, in a flurry of excitement, drove me out to Nun's Island (which definitely needs a new access point) to check out the remains of a gas station designed by famed architect, Mies van der Rohe. We parked, let his dog out, and circled the boarded up building a few times. It was nothing too impressive, but one had to imagine back to 1962 during its unveiling - Mies also designed Westmount Square around that time. We left a few minutes later, having let the dog do his business around back.

After years of abandonment, architecture firm FABG has completed renovation of the building with the goal of adapting it into a youth and senior activity center. Check out more photos at Architizer Blog.

Last week saw rotisserie Laurier Gordon Ramsay lose the Gordon and the Ramsay in its name after only a few months. Co-owner Danny Lavy made the bold move, maintaining that Ramsay hadn't shown since the re-opening in August. The restaurant is now called Laurier 1936. (+)

News of the first aboriginal to be canonized is an exciting thing for Mohawk Catholics of Kahnawake. Some, including those in the tourism industry, are gearing up for an October date for Kateri Tekakwitha to become a saint. Others, especially the younger generation, couldn't care less. (+)

News round-up for the day: Habs trade Kostitsyn, still in last place, and still suck. (+)

I miss the Morning Brew being a regular thing on Midnight Poutine.
I hope this is not an exception, but a return.

A saint? What a slap in the face. If only someone had bothered with a miracle to help out thousands of native kids being abused by Catholic residential school staff.
