Where you should go when in Montreal

Excuse me, what now? MMICC is only 10 days away? Yikes, it’s time to rest up & start pondering over what to pack.

In the meantime, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Montreal locations for you to check out while here – if you find a spare moment, that is!

Restaurants: Santropol

Cafe Santropol (3990 St Urbain St) – this quirky location boasts delicious sandwiches, & perfectly captures the essence of the Plateau neighbourhood.
Deville Diner (1425 Stanley) – 2 words: Lobster BLTA (a.k.a. Bacon Lettuce Tomato Avocado)
L’Evidence (3619 St Denis St) – Montreal is known for its brunch locations, but this gem offers excellent food along with impeccable service.

 

Coffee Shops:

Café Falco

Humble Lion (904 Sherbrooke W) – voted one of the best in all of Montreal, and only 2 doors down from your hotel.
Mamie Clafoutis (3660 rue St Denis) – very French, try the Oh-Mon-Dieu pastry (the name is quite accurate).
Café Falco (5605 Avenue de Gaspé) – if you find yourself wandering through the artsy Mile End neighbourhood, stop by here and savour the skilfully brewed coffee as well as the shop’s industrial decor.

New Year, New Surprises.

McGillians around the world were clenching their fists, biting their lips, and cheering on the Desautels MBA team who was making history. Team Aspire, they call themselves, won the Boston regional contest and became eligible to compete for the $1,000,000 on an international stage for the Hult Prize. Forthwith, the team knew they are on to something big. So they travelled the world to expand their edification and comprehension of their solution to counter malnutrition and famine.

It was an all-canadian experience that the participants had for the third day of MMICC!  The morning and afternoon were composed of snowtubing, a Canadian food feast and some maple taffy to end the trip! While most took their bus time to fill up on highly needed energy, some showed their wrestling and snow-fight prowess between two slides down the hill!

Day 2 Newsletter

Screenshot_3_20_13_7_32_AMDay Two was another exciting day, starting with Opening Presentations, where Professor Donovan presented competition rules. Congratulations to BI Norwegian Business School for winning the People’s Choice Award. The lip dub was also presented. Huge shoutouts to team Thammasat and their amazing rendition of the Bohemian Rhapsody.

Next, participants were put into teams and sent off on a scavenger hunt around Montreal prepared by Shady and Julianna, our amazing VP Internal duo. Teams went around to Old Montreal, The Village, and Chinatown. At 2pm, the entire MMICC 2013 delegation gathered outside the McGill University Arts Building for an official group photo, after which a spontaneous snowball fight started!

In the evening, we had our opening ceremonies at the PaC museum in Old Port, where the case presentation order was determined.

Following that, we had our social night at Le Confessional!!
