I had great fun in Montreal. On Saturday, I walked St. Catherine Street and did some shopping and explored the Gay Village. That evening, I met our blog friend JiEL at Sky bar where we had a pitcher of Sangria before he took me on a more extensive tour of the Gay Village. We stopped in a bar called Campus where there were nude dancers (lots of fun). Then we headed to dinner at Toro Rosso, which was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I had the linguine pescatore and it was delicious. After dinner we went back to Campus where they were having the Best Butt of 2016 contest. Brandon Jones, the model above, was the host for the evening. I personally think he has a pretty nice butt, but there were some fine ones on display. Afterwards, I was a little naughty and got a lap dance from one of the dancers we’d seen perform. I will not go into detail on that one, except to say that it was a lot of fun.

Yesterday was Montreal Museum Day, where many of the museums were free and open to the public.  After visiting Basilica Notre-Dame, I went to the Museum of Archeology and History. I realized that the museums were very crowded, so I didn’t try for any others. Instead, I found a place for brunch. I won’t say that the brunch was anything to write home about, but the Bloody Mary I had was fantastic. If I had known what a Bloody Caesar was, I might have tried one, but I stuck with a Bloody Mary.  My feet were aching, so I headed back to my room to rest for a little while and put up my feet before heading out to Oasis Sauna. The sauna had lots of eye candy, but I’m not sure it was for me.

I know it may sound like I was a little wild and naughty on this trip, but sometimes you just have to let your hair down and try some new experiences. Needless to say, I had a blast.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
