Day 2: Indica, Is That You?

Aftermath Of Day 1

Indica Montreal

I woke up from my foray into legal pot fully refreshed (and 3.3 lbs heavier according to the scale). Given the duration and intensity of my experience, it’s remarkable there was no hangover or adverse side effects (Aside from intense munchies). Anyone who has drank all night or taken some extracurriculars for the same duration would feel considerably worse (allegedly) the next day.

While the day before was an “L” in my overall cannabis experience. I was determined to press on in the name of science. I learned from my first experience. First thing I did was hop back on the SQDC website and look at what I had actually taken yesterday and what would be my next choice for my rigorous sampling method. I learned a few new things:

 

  1. Oils/Spray are not to be taken lightly.
  2. Read the fuckin’ dosage: While the other day I broke down the Strain VS THC Vs Type I overlooked that for each specific product there is a percentage of Cannabinoids, THC and CBD in each dose. On closer inspection, The Solei Renouer spray had a whopping 25mg dose per spray(2-3x more than any other spay on the site). I also took 2 sprays/doses. Various sites say to start with around 5mg for novices.  I’m not an MIT alum, but I’m pretty sure I took 10 times more than the recommended dose
  3. The site lists the overall strength. Under the strain type icon on the site, there are 1-3 little dashes to indicate the strength. You’d think a government agency would err on the side of caution with the strength levels. However, yesterday’s sample, was at a full 3 dashes (the highest) rating of “strong” . They should also use something less design forward then simple dashes. It would be better if they used a pictogram of someone getting knocked out or a coma patient .                                                                                                                                                                                With my new life lessons at hand, it was time to pick up my next product to sample. I wasn’t going to tuck my tail between my legs and go for the familiar bud. Like ol’ GW, I was going to prove to my dad that I wasn’t a pussy, and I decided to go straight back for the oil. Just this time hopefully a bit wiser.

 

Test 2:  Aurora – Capsules

Type: Oil (in capsules)

Species: Indica

Cannabinoids: 10% THC and 0% CBD per dose/pill).

# of little dashes : 2 out of 3   (medium)

 

Indica

Description:

This Indica strain, in capsule form, has a medium THC content and contains no CBD. It may cause a feeling of physical heaviness, giving the impression of being calm and relaxed. It may even cause drowsiness. This product does not have a distinctive aroma. CAUTION! The effects may take up to two or three hours to appear. We strongly recommend beginning with one low-dose capsule and waiting up to several hours before taking more, if desired.

I was proceeding with caution this time. It was 5pm and I was back home from the office and wanted to kick back, making the overall strain choice of Indica more suitable as I was looking to turn off my MENSA intellect in favor of a “body high”. I stuck to a much lower dosage (1/5th of the other day at 10 vs 50mg) of THC in a more measurable format of an oil filled capsule.

Results

Unlike Nemo, I could not tell you if I took the right pill or the wrong pill or even if I was still in the Matrix. I was comatose. I’ve had all sorts of opiates from my spinal surgery as a teen to smoking opium in the jungles of Laos. Honestly, this 1 little pill made me more numb then I can remember. I’d like to tell you I went out and did all sorts of cool things in Montreal to take advantage of my high, but I’d be lying. I was KO’ed. I spent the entire evening laying on my sofa, drifting in and out of consciousness.  I felt as if i went to a cocktail party at Cosby’s. I also didn’t have any of the mental paranoia or “deep thoughts” which was advertised for an Indica. This made the experience more enjoyable as I knew I was gone, I didn’t have an guilt or paranoia to ruin my “buzz”.

My plan was to describe/write this experience while I was feeling the effects. That didn’t work. All I had was a open Google doc with 2  lines writtenFeels like time is moving very slowly…” and “Very Hungry, too lazy to Uber eats”.

Oils: 2, Me: 0

In all seriousness, I don’t know where or when I’d want to be as sedated as I was. I could not believe the effect from 1 “medium” strength pill. This experience does validate the medical legitimacy of cannabis. One $1.50 pill sedated me as effectively as any opiate i’ve ever tried for over 5 hours. This could provide serious relive to those in suffer from chronic pain with none of the side effects/risk of opiates.

How to get HIGH in Montreal – A field guide. What you should know, and what we can’t remember.

*** LEGAL DISCLAIMER*** Since this is new territory I’d like to appease my business partners and lawyers by noting that Connected Montreal does not provide or supply cannabis products. We do not condone the use of black market cannabis products. The use of legal cannabis products are to only be used and consumed in Canada. Consult your physician before using any cannabis products. The following experiences below are purely anecdotal… allegedly. For more information regarding weed laws, click here

Last week, on October 17th, Cannabis AKA Weed, pot, reefer… Etc became LEGAL in all of Canada. Not decriminalized or tolerated…Fully legal. Canada is the first G8 nation to do so.

While Cannabis is now legal, there are a few basic laws about smoking weed in Montreal:

-You must be be over 18 to buy or consume marijuana

-You can’t carry over 30 grams (that’s over an ounce) per person

-You can’t drive high (duh)

-You can’t smoke in smoke free zones (schools/hospitals)

Weed is regulated here in Quebec (Montreal is in Quebec) by the newly formed SQDC. The  SQDC is a government run weed store (Socialism at its finest) and is the only place you can buy LEGAL cannabis. There is only one physical store location downtown, which at the time of writing has a line around the block and a 3 hour wait to get in (this will, of course, die down). You can order online in Canada, However shipping takes 2-4 days.

Cannabis at the SQDC is sold in primarily 2 forms:  dried buds and pre-rolled joints for smoking OR oils, capsules, and sprays for oral consumption. Edibles such as cookies and gummy bears will not be sold as they are seen as a child safety hazard.

Luckily, I was able to get an order in online (the order volume has been so insane that quantity is already low.) In the name of science and R&D, I used the company Amex to deliver some legal cannabis products to our office. I ordered a sampling of 3 products: buds, spray, and oil/capsules.

Montreal Weed Guide

 

Weed College

In case you don’t listen to rap or are a mormon, here is a crash course in cannabis as it’s important to know the different types of strains and general effects  (or read what big brother says)

The most important thing to look for is THC content. For noobs, this means how much of the psychoactive compound is in the weed that makes you high.

Furthermore, there are 2 strains of cannabis that each give their own specific feeling/high: Sativa and Indica

Sativa: The THC in this strain gives you the “head high” the government says, “Its effects are usually described as potentially energizing, uplifting or mentally stimulating”

Indica : This strain gives you the “body high”. The government describes Indica as, ““Its effects are usually described as potentially calming, relaxing or sleep-inducing.“

Montreal Weed Guide

 

Hybrid : A mix of the two strains and a mix of the two highs. Most weed sold is a hybrid.

CBD Content : This is in reference to the NON-Psychoactive chemical. CBD is considered a miracle drug by many as its know to be of the the best anti-inflammatory out there. CBD doesn’t get you high, but it has many amazing medical benefits that I highly recommend (Think of it as a replacement for Advil, hangovers, and soreness from working out). Most people are excited that CBD is now legal as many use it to reduce chronic pain. CBD products and strains were the first to sell out online.

Type VS high:  ***Very important***. Smoking will always be the mild and shorter high, its also easier to control your dose. While eating (oils/sprays) is the wild wild west as you don’t really know how hard it will hit, or how long the high will last. The effects might not kick in for 2-3 hours… and the high can last 8+ hours. If you’re a novice, DON’T do the oils.

First Hand Report

I should mention my familiarity with cannabis (My parents learned a long time ago not to read this site and to just tell their friends I’m an “event planner”) I learned the lessons of the “sweet leaf” as a teenager (like most of you). During the mid to late 90’s in the US, weed was still illegal and expensive. Good bud cost more than gold, literally, and could get you arrested in most states. Regardless, there was no better way for a teen to get action from a chubby drama chick then by having weed. I smoked my fair share back in the day and still a bit now in my 30’s, so I’m no stranger to the occasional high. I thought I’d be prepared, boy was I wrong.

Test 1: Solei “Renouer

“ THC Spray $31″

Weed Spray

The SQDC website says:

This blend, in oral spray form, has a strong THC content and contains no CBD. It may give the impression of experiencing stimulating sensations, increase the desire to be around others and even create an urge to laugh. This product does not have a distinctive aroma. CAUTION! The effects may take up to two or three hours to appear. We strongly recommend beginning with a small amount and waiting a few hours before taking more, if desired.

This is the strongest and cheapest spray that is legally sold. It is also a Sativa.  I thought it would be a good idea to start at the top and work my way down… I was wrong.

At around noon, I decided to take 2 sprays on an empty stomach and began my journey. An hour later, I realized I should have taken just one spray.

I was catapulted into the the stratosphere of legal weed. Since any real productive work was thrown out the window, I decided to skip out on the office and indulge the buzz.

When your high, really high, there’s nothing better than stuffing your face. No better place to do so then Schwartz’s. Their smoked meat sandwiches are legendary and loved by all. Upon arrival, the line was down the block. Luckily, due to our Briskets and Breasts partnership, I was able to skip the line and grab a quick sandwich to go. I’d like to think this went as smooth as possible but I think everyone knew I was high, or maybe that was the paranoia kicking in?

 

The sandwich didn’t quench the beast  so like any glutton/foodie I hopped into an Uber (Please don’t drive high…) to my favorite place in Montreal, Jean Talon Market.

Jean Talon is possibly the best farmers market in North America. It’s the real deal with food you won’t see anywhere this side of the Atlantic. I’m too vain to list ALL the things I ate but highlights include: pulled pork tacos, snow crab at the raw bar, raw milk cheese samples (till they gave me dirty looks), and of course, a good pour over from the hipster kid who knew what was up and was probably high too.

I’d like to lie and say the rest of my high was a magical adventure, but I’d be lying. After stuffing my face, I took an Uber home and listened to “Sapiens” on Audible and JRE for the rest of the day. It was a far cry from the promised, “…gives the impression of experiencing stimulating sensations, increase the desire to be around others and even create an urge to laugh.”

The high had lasted well over 10 hours… Yes, 10 fuckin’ hours!

I am way too old to be that high for that long. I’ve taken edibles a bunch of times and this spray was right up there as one of my more  “memorable” weed experiences.

Learn from my mistake and only take one spray if you decide to indulge. Don’t be an idiot like me and take 2. Wait about two to three hours for the spray to kick in. I’m sure some people can handle this, if not something stronger.  Also, I don’t recommend this high for a bachelor party unless it’s a rainy day or you want to REALLY relax the rest of the afternoon. This spray is definitely not something I’d recommend before going out.

It’s important to note that for less than $1 I was high all day. The bang for your buck is off the charts. It’s clear Canada is not fucking around with weed legalization and is taking aim at the “black market” with superior products at dirt cheap prices.

It’s 11pm and I’m going to bed. I am still buzzed and defeated. Solei Renouer 1, Me 0.

Test 2 coming soon…

The Pros And Cons Of Throwing The Bachelor On Stage

If you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, stopping at a strip club is a necessary adventure. It’s fun for the whole group and you might even call it a bonding experience. There’s nothing quite like getting a lap dance from the same stripper and comparing notes with your buddy…Regardless, putting the bachelor on stage at the strip club and having various strippers humiliate him is always an option. It’s a great choice for some bachelor parties, while for others it could ruin the night. Here’s the pros and cons of throwing the bachelor on stage for a strip club show:

Strip Club Show

Pros:

It’s A Good Time

We all know that a bachelor party is never about the bachelor himself, but rather about the other guys on the trip. Seeing the bachelor get degraded and spanked on stage is hilarious to see for the rest of the guys. It’s always great for groups that like a bit more attention from the strippers or don’t take themselves too seriously.

Some Bachelors Enjoy The Attention

While we do offer a dominatrix show, this is the next best thing for those bachelors that are secretly masochists and like to be roughed up a bit. Who knows maybe they’ll discover something new about themselves…You can thank us later. There are bachelors that like to be the star of the show and this is the best way to get all of the attention in the strip club.

Memorable Send Off

Putting the bachelor on stage is certainly a memorable experience to say bye to his single years. He won’t forget his time on stage and it will give you some fond memories to reminisce about until his divorce party in 5 years.

Strip Club Show

Cons:

Unwanted Surprise

Anytime you throw the bachelor on stage, it’s a surprise (or just get him drunk enough..) Either way, it’s a bold move that could backfire tremendously. The bachelor may feel uncomfortable, but in our opinion, that’s the point of the bachelor party. He may not talk to you for the rest of the weekend, but that’s what true friends are for.

Wife’s Pissed

Whatever you do, make sure there is no evidence of the show if his fiancé is crazy. We’ve had a few women call us up about their man’s bachelor party and we tell them they have nothing to worry about…If there is evidence, you guys better have your stories straight. The pictures last a little longer than that handprint on the bachelor’s ass.

Tacky

Sure, we get it…Throwing the bachelor on stage is tacky, but that’s why we love it. It’s one of those traditional bachelor party activities that just completes the weekend. Besides, you’re not from Montreal, so tell the strippers you’re a porn star and make a fool of yourself. If you guys are all tightwads, take 30 minutes just to put gel in your hair, and enjoy staring at each other than putting the bachelor on stage is not for you. Otherwise, get ready for a good laugh.

Why Getting Brisket And Breasts Might Be The Best Decision You Make All Weekend

Here at Connected Montreal, our goal is to make your bachelor party as epic as possible during your time in Montreal. That being said, we know there are only so many hours in the weekend and most groups want to pack in as much as they can. That’s why we came up with Brisket And Breasts. Unlike those 5 shots of tequila at 2 P.M., here’s why getting Brisket And Breasts is one of the best decisions you’ll make all weekend:

Smoked Meat

There are three foods you have to try when visiting Montreal. Stops for poutine, bagels, and smoked meat are necessary at some point during the weekend. While there are a few smoked meat places, Schwartz’s is by far the best. The only problem is the line on any given weekend wraps around the block throughout the day. We’ve helped you solve this problem and save you the hassle of waiting in line by being able to get Schwartz’s catered directly to your house or hotel.

Brisket And Breasts

Topless Girls

There are certain things that are necessary to do on a bachelor party (steak dinner) and certain things that should be avoided (NOT prepaying your lap dances). One thing that is absolutely necessary for any bachelor party is strippers. It brings some excitement to the weekend and ensures that, at least for an hour or two, your bachelor party is not a total sausage fest.

Topless Girls

Kill Two Birds With One Stone  

In the name of efficiency (and because it is genius!), we have combined both Schwartz’s and topless girls to create Brisket And Breasts. You’ll get to try delicious smoked meat without leaving your house or hotel all while you get served the food by topless girls. In our opinion, the enjoyable scenery adds some flavor to the smoked meat.

Brisket And Breasts

Pro Tip: To take the bachelor party to the next level, add in some topless beer pong to pregame before hitting the clubs.

Give us a call at 1-877-490-6919 or email us to get started today!

Why Curling Is A Great Daytime Activity For Bachelor Parties

What’s the first thing you think of when someone mentions curling? Crickets…Sure, the sport is a bunch of grown men sweeping ice with broomsticks, but you probably don’t think of a bachelor party. Once the summer activities start to die down and pumpkin spice season starts, curling becomes a popular activity here in Montreal. Here’s 3 reasons you should consider curling for your bachelor party:

Unique Activity

It seems like every bachelor party tries to one up the next one. Sure, we can easily throw more girls, more strip clubs, and more midgets into the mix, but how many bachelor parties go curling? Now’s your time to finally learn this mysterious game you’ve only seen on TV at the Olympics. Besides, you can finally take pictures (semi) sober with your boys and send it back to the girlfriend or wife…unless you bring along party girls of course 😉

Curling Montreal

 

Fun For Everyone

There are always pros and cons with daytime activities. Some guys may not like getting splashed with freezing cold water if they go jet boating or others may be scared of heights if you go zip lining, but curling is fun for the whole group. I’ve never seen an unhappy sweeper and even though the staff will explain the game to you, half the fun is not knowing what the hell you’re doing. If you’re looking to satisfy everyone in your bachelor party group, curling is a great fall and winter daytime option.

Curling Montreal

Bar   

Any sport that you can do while drinking is already amazing. Just like bowling, curling is made even better with an ice cold beer in hand. Luckily for you, there is a bar inside the curling arena. It helps loosen up the muscles and makes sweeping all the more fun. By the time the afternoon is over, you and your buddies will be well on your way to making the national curling team.

Connected Montreal Summer 2018 Recap

Labor Day has come and gone, which means yet another crazy Connected Montreal summer is in the books. 2018 was by far our busiest summer yet. We were sold out every weekend and we swear we almost burnt the town down a few times (Very close call on Grand Prix weekend, but we’ll get to that…) Here are some highlights from this past summer:

Grand Prix Weekend

Grand Prix Weekend is the official unofficial start of summer. Taking place on the first weekend of June, everyone is ready to party hard and girls are extra “friendly”. It’s a weekend that is made for big ballers and those that are ready to flash some cash. We had some new faces and old pals come party with us this year. $18,000 worth of Moet, Veuve, and Dom P each night, hot girls, a sparkler incident that almost went wrong and partying with some of the drivers including Lewis Hamilton on Sunday night were definitely the highlights. The weekend is still a blur to us…We came. We saw. We drank champagne.

Champagne Montreal Grand Prix 2018

 

Most Booze Consumed

While these guys from Chicago gave this group a good run for their money, nothing tops the $5,000 worth of vodka, whiskey, and tequila that a group from San Francisco ordered. We had it pre-stocked at their house waiting for them upon arrival. We didn’t even mention the $2,000 worth of bottles they got at the club…it’s unclear whether these guys were sober at any point during the weekend. At least that’s one way to avoid a hangover…or guarantee to have one for the rest of 2018.

Pre-Stocked Fridge Grand Prix Weekend 2018

 

Most Amount Of Topless Girls

We always like to see groups that try to push the limit and see at what point they get tired of seeing nudity. We’re pretty sure these guys hit that point. They started one night innocently enough with some good ol’ fashioned topless beer pong. For dinner, they did a naked sushi with 4 topless waitresses and for dessert, they got a lesbian show…with 10 girls. Yes, you read that correctly, 10 girls. Bravo, you weirdos.

We invite you to try and take this title next year. Here are some ideas to get you started…

Strippers Summer 2018

Strangest Request

When you are in the bachelor party industry, you are bound to get some strange requests. It’s part of the business. This year, we had a group call up and tell us they were big Star Wars fans. They wanted to know if they could get some strippers to do a show in Princess Leia costumes. Since we’re known for making anything happen, we found some outfits and made it work. For good measure, we sent along a midget in a Yoda get up.

Best Montreal Supper Clubs In 2018

Supper clubs are found in other cities, but nowhere does supper clubs like Montreal. For those of you that have never heard of a Montreal supper club, they are eateries during the evening that turn into full blown nightclubs after dinner is served. They are consistently some of the best places in Montreal to party. How could they not be? With a great mix of delicious food, model hot girls, bottles, and the fact that you don’t even have to leave to go party, it’s no wonder reservations are nearly impossible to get. Luckily, with our connections, you won’t have that problem. Here’s the best Montreal supper clubs to check out in 2018:

Bord’elle

Leading the resurgence of the Old Port, Bord’elle is a great option for a more sophisticated group. Modeled after a 1920’s speakeasy, the food is incredible. We recommend you try their Filet Mignon in a VSOP cognac glaze, but there is nothing we don’t like on the menu. Once the clock strikes midnight, Bord’elle comes alive and the champagne starts flowing. If you head to this club, be prepared for a rowdy time. It is one of the best places to party on Thursday nights and is a go to spot jump off point for our groups that think they can handle 3 massive nights of partying…To them, we say good luck. Bord’elle will give you all you can handle and than some!

Bord'elle Montreal 2018

Soubois

Soubois, French for “Underground Forest”, is the perfect spot for those that care more about the scenery than the food. For starters, the space is unique and looks like you are surrounded by trees. It’s a nice touch, but you didn’t come for the interior design. The food is good, but their very hot waitresses steal the show. Consider it a practice round for you and your buddies to get warmed up talking to locals. Soubois is a solid spot on Friday, but is reliably great on Saturday.

Sousbois Montreal 2018

Flyjin

Located down the street from Bord’elle in the Old Port, Flyjin is a smaller, more intimate supper club. Their menu was created by renowned, international chef Antonio Park. The miso black cod is to die for. Unfortunately, this club only works best with groups of 10 or less since anything above that, your group would be 10-20% capacity of the club. What club wants a good portion of their clientele that night to be guys? None. (Of course, we could always tip the scale in your favor if you bring along some party girls..)

Flyjin Montreal 2018

Joverse

This laid back, casual supper club is ideal for larger groups or for guys that don’t want something too fancy. It’s not as pretentious as some of the other supper clubs that were previously mentioned. It’s a great place to party with less crowds and is more relaxed. The crowd tends to skew a bit younger, which means hot, impressionable girls so we generally recommend Joverse for groups that are more budget conscious, but still want to ball out during their time in Montreal.

5 Best Clubs To Pick Up Models

Montreal is known for its hot girls, but we know you. You want the best of the best. You’re coming to Montreal for the weekend so you might as well go for gold and hit on the hottest models in the city! We all know you can only hide your lack of personality with your wallet for so long, but luckily, these girls don’t care. They will gladly listen to your terrible pick up lines…if you have enough Dom P and Veuve around. Here’s 5 clubs to test your luck and try to pick up hot models:

Sousbois

This downtown supper club is known for looking like an underground forest and for its gorgeous wait staff. Just going to dinner with your buddies turns into an head turning event. It’s a good way to kick off the night and flirt with a girl that is being paid to laugh at your awful jokes. The real fun starts when the dinner service ends, the lights dim, and the place turns into a club. Due to how exclusive Sousbois is, the quality of girls is high and models know that big ballers come here. In our experience, the more bottles, the hotter the models.

Montreal Models

La Voute

One of the newer clubs on Montreal’s nightlife scene, opened in 2017, La Voute (French for “The Vault”) is currently one of the trendiest clubs in the city. It has massive lines every weekend, but with our connections we can get you right in and bring you straight to your table. Party girls would be an excellent addition (as they always are!) at La Voute as every model in Montreal wants a taste of this club.

Montreal Models

Bord’elle

An eatery by day and club by night, Bord’elle is teeming with hot girls once the clock strikes midnight. From model hot bartenders to acrobats swinging around the club, Bord’elle attracts plenty of talent. Be sure to at least put a nice shirt on because this club attracts the more upscale, well-dressed models. Sure, they may seem intimidatingly hot at first, but really they are fishing for compliments…

Montreal Models

New City Gas

This 4,000 square foot club is located in the up and coming Griffintown neighborhood that’s well known to Instagram models that love to party. The models that come here love their fruity drinks, selfies, and anything shiny. Get bottles and you’ll soon have every girl that you awkwardly followed on social media swarming your table. Who knows maybe she’ll think your not a degenerate and she’ll feature you in her #IGStory…

Montreal Models

Rouge

Rouge has been in the game for over a decade so you. It brings in a younger French Canadian crowd. If you’re looking for trashier, model hot girls, then Rouge is a safe bet. While not as sophisticated as some of the other places on our list, Rouge makes up for it by being a great time and the friendliness of the girls. Getting a few bottles at Rouge will take you far and the whole club, including hot girls, will be at your table.

The Best Montreal Hangover Meals

When you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, your going to follow a pretty straight forward formula: dinner, strip club, go out, after party, repeat. Then comes the next morning and it feels like Pierre the midget is trying to force his way out of your head. Luckily, Montreal knows you came here to party and is ready with a variety of hangover food options. Here’s 6 of our favorite Montreal hangover meals:

Poutine

Anyone that’s ever been to Montreal will tell you that you have to try poutine. We’re not sure what they sprinkle on it, but if you’ve ever had a hangover poutine, you know that feeling when you instantly come back to life. There are hundreds of poutine places all over Montreal, but head to La Banquise, a Montreal institution. Walk across the street to Parc LaFontaine to soak in some sun and if you’re feeling bold, have a beer or two with your meal to really clear that foggy head.

Montreal Hangover

Bagels

Montreal vs. New York bagels… We know every New Yorker that is going to read this will defend their own version, but we don’t care since you’re on our turf. Head to St. Viateur for their bagel sandwiches or be a true Montrealer and get bagels with a tub of cream cheese. This is our personal favorite option since the combination of doughy bread with sweet and salty flavors will have you ready for the next big night out in no time.

Bachelor Party Hangover Montreal

Down And Dirty Brunch

Montreal’s brunch scene might not be as developed as the East Coast, but don’t sleep on several great options. L’Avenue is by far one of our favorites. Although the wait can be an hour or more on the weekend depending on when you arrive, the portions are more than generous (Especially the pancakes) and you’ll have a full grown food baby by the time you leave. Of course, any brunch can be turned into a boozy one, so if that’s what you want, L’Avenue is your best option.

Carb Overload

Carbs are a necessity when it comes to proper hangover recovery and Montreal is not short on carb loading options. Boustan’s is better known for its late night shenanigans, but it is also a great daytime eating spot. The Lebanese fast food restaurant serves up delicious shawarma, kebabs and falafel. If you’re more in the mood for a burger, head down the street to Crescent’s Burger Bar. After a quick scan of the menu, you’ll realize that they have already made the choice for you by offering a Hangover Burger. The burger consists of beef patties, cheese, bacon, poutine, truffle oil, caramelized onions, and for good measure, a fried egg. You can thank us later…

Dim Sum

This small portion Chinese brunch has exploded in popularity the last few years and there’s nothing better than greasy dumplings to soak up that remaining booze in your system. You really can’t go wrong with any dim sum restaurant in Chinatown on St. Laurent. Most have plenty of room to accommodate any size group so if your bachelor party consists of foodies, this is the hangover brunch for you.

Brisket And Breasts

When you have a pounding hangover, the last thing you’ll want to do is stand in line and wait for smoked meat. Make your life easier and throw some fun into the mix by having Schwartz’s catered to your house with some topless waitresses serving you. Unlike those 3 shots of tequila after drinking bourbon all night, this is a decision you won’t regret.
