Secret info for the Stereophile crew:
There is always a problem with knowing where to eat at audio shows. How to find the good food when your blood sugar is low and you need sustenance NOW and you need it fast. So you can get back to the show, of course! Or, at the end of a hard day running a room at the show, where to go for that incredible Montreal Style Smoked Meat sandwich?
But...to get there NOW, and to be served NOW and to have it be INCREDIBLE.
That is the impossible combination.
However, when it comes to insider information, I have an advantage. The folks who distribute my product just happen to be in Montreal, so they know exactly what to do. This is the distilled knowledge from 10 Montreal based sales reps and citizens of Montreal.
Step out the front door of the Sheraton Hotel where the show is taking place. This is not the back door, which is for cars, but the front door, on the street. For those who need such information, that's "Boulevard Rene Levesque".
Then you turn left or walk left from that front door. You then walk to the corner. Then one more tiny block. You will see an open square that is on the same side of the street as you are. Walk diagonally across that. You will then be literally in front of "Dunn's". Dunn's is a 'world famous' Montreal style smoked meat sandwich shop, that has a liquor license, so you can have a beer with your INCREDIBLE Montreal Style smoked meat sandwich.
So there you go.
Incredible food and a beer within 5 minutes of the show's front door.
Don't tell anyone. It's a secret. Ok?
