Filming on St-Viateur


On St-Viateur last weekend for a family lunch, I noticed this filming and took a picture to show that there is always something happening in our neighbourhood. On our way to the table at the B&M restaurant (I know...not the most appetizing of names), I showed the picture to my husband, who informed me that the monsieur with the glasses and unruly hair was Xavier Dolan-Tadros. I pointed to the dog hiding behind the sign, looking as if he were waiting for his cue.
"Do you know who he is?" My husband asked.
"No," I said, as I took off my son's coat.
"He won a few awards at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival," he said.
"So why is he filming on St-Viateur outside the B&M restaurant?" I asked, "There must be more exotic settings elsewhere."
"Probably using every opportunity he has to keep learning," he said.

As I looked at the menu, I noticed the B&M served "les flotteurs" and erupted into laughter.
My husband asked me what was so funny, and I told him that they should have called the restaurant the M&B.

you are getting as bad as your old Dad snapping pictures everywhere. I'm interested in your book give away.

Your hood seems a lot like my hood here in Gastown although I think you probably have better restaurants at least a little more affordable. Too many of the places here are the phony California fern bars with wonderful surroundings and micro waved food and top drawer prices.

Well, it's certainly not as cheap as it used to be, but the prices are reasonable compared with everywhere else in North America. There's always something happening though. If I'm better tomorrow (I'm so sick of being sick!) I'm going to the church bazar sale at St-Viateur church, which should be fun! I few cheap treasures, and of course, the pièce de resistance this weekend, Hallowe'en. Can't wait! The kids are excited! H

Put a vote in for the book at the CBC and as you can see
Halloween is in full swing out here on the wet coast. If you are suffering from the flu that I had it will take you at least a month to recover. I had ten days of being very sick and the rest of the month being annoyingly sick.
