Montreal Pool Room to Cross the Street

the all new mtl pool room?

Despite the recent backpeddling by the Société de Développement Angus, the Montreal Pool Room building was sold March 3rd. One certainly can’t blame the owners for accepting a cool million (three times the building’s last valuation) and moving shop across the street.

The old Montreal Pool Room building was constructed in 1889, shortly before the Monument National, and was originally used as a hardware store. It has housed the hot dog joint since at last 1924.

  1. C’est pas un parc l’autre coté de la rue? Super que ca reste dans le même coin quand même.

  2. Le parc est plus bas à côté de la SAT. Est-ce qu’ils vont déménager le “trou” dans le plancher de terrazzo qui a devant la caisse, causé par l’usure de milliers de pieds payant pour leur hot dogs. C’est ce qui m’impressionne le plus du Pool Room.

  3. The noun in the first sentence should
    read as backpedalling.
