This is not so much a bar hop as a bar marathon that runs (get it?) the entire length of Canada. If you have the stamina, so do we.

Well, it had to happen. Autumn is peeking just around the corner. In certain parts of Canada, the leaves are already starting to turn. For those of you who really embrace the whole crispness-in-the-air thing, you’ll love Montreal in the fall and the W Montreal's Plateau Lounge in particular.

When you enter Plateau Lounge you feel like you’ve walked into an autumnal forest, all cozy with orange and brown hues and trunk-like wooden tables. The bar itself has red and ochre leaves pressed into its illuminated top.

To get into the fall spirit if you’re not quite there yet, try the “Milton’s Muse” cocktail made with gin, Apfelkorn, house-made lime cordial and apple juice, or the “Saraswatini” consisting of Poire William, Amaretto, pear juice and, yes, apple juice.

Super Secret Hotel Deal: W Montreal for $59 a Night?

We got this email in our inbox about a deep discounted room rate at the W Montreal. But it looks a little "if it sounds to good to be true it probably is" to us, so we'll leave it up to you to tell us if it is the real deal.

Icon is allegedly offering a room for $59 at the hotel, compared with the usual $379 room rate. This of course doesn't include taxes and travel must be completed by September 14th. There's no way to book online either. You can send the Icon group an email at icontravel@icon-intl.com or call them at (866) 210-3032.

We skipped on over to their website just to see what was shaking and we found out that the company is a part of Omnicon, a group of advertising and marketing firms, that engage in something called corporate barter. We could take the time to explain how it works to you but we wouldn't want anything to get lost in translation.

If this deal skeeves you out, then check the hotel's website for their own special offers. Let us know how it goes out there in hotel deal land.
