While in Verdun yesterday I took some photos of Verdun's 2 favorite watering holes across the De L'Église (Church) avenue bridge. To my surprise, the former tavern on the right as we cross the bridge is now, are you ready for this, BAR ISTANBUL, that's correct, BAR ISTANBUL. What's the world coming to.
Of course, to the left across the street it is now the brasserie named BRASSERIE CÔTE ST PAUL. As we all know, taverns are now called Brasserie and women are allowed. On my way back to my car, I photographed the Montreal skyscrapers from the De L'Église (Church) bridge. What a view.
My car was parked on Hickson at the corner of Cool and I noticed how shabby the houses looked. Garbage bags half opened and junk all over the place, in the yards and galleries. Next time I will take photos and send them to city hall and I will tell them to clean up their act.
I lived on Evangéline (formerly Bond) in my youth and I don't think it was that bad .
