Well all the rumours are true.
My beloved La Faugbourg Ste Catherine is no more! Well at the very least nowhere near her former glory! I mean at a quick glance it seems like it is “under renovations”, but there is a sad feeling of abandonment that I just couldn’t shake.
I think of all the hours I spent there over the years. Shopping, eating, waiting, meeting, planning and day dreaming my days away. There was always something going on and lots of choice for whatever your mood desired. Fabulous people watching, great place to read the paper with coffee and a croissant or grab a quick supper before running off to a class or picking up from fruit and bagels for breakfast.
In fact, for one reason or another, I was even invited to the grand opening of the movie theatre that used to be there. It was an extravagant affair with champagne and fancy snacks and even some sort of art unveiling. Now there appears to be some sort of video store with a porn selection in the corner.
But there are certainly a whole slew of new places to try and enjoy! Some sound a little questionable, but never judge a book by its cover!
Not quite ready to try this one.
