Montreal bound

I’m leaving for a weekend in Montreal tonight, and I’m taking my housemate Paul there as his birthday present (His birthday’s on the 13th). It’s part of Paul’s indoctrination as a soon-to-be “New Canadian”. I’ll take him to rue Prince-Arthur, St-Denis, the mountain, the old city, “Club Super Sexe” (at least to take his picture beside that beautiful sign) and teach him remedial French.

Thanks to a VIA Rail voucher sent to me by Dave “Dave’s Picks” Polaschek — thanks very much, Dave! — and Boris’ loaning me of his apartment (he’s off to NYC for the weekend) — thanks, Boris! — we can go to Montreal in cheap but comfortable style.

We’ll be there from tonight around 11:30 p.m. to Sunday around 6:00 p.m. If you’re in Montreal and want to share in some drinking and general accordion mayhem, I’ll have my cell phone (416 WIT N HIP — hey, that’s the number they gave me) and I should have email access.

Do you know of a good place to

1) take accordion lessons in Montreal or on the West Island for a beginner?

2) buy or rent an accordion (new or used) for someone who wants to try it out?

Anxious to know. Just starting this search. Also if you do not know the answers to these questions, do you know who might?
