1 n. Alcoholic beverage native to Quebec, most often served at Carnival.
"Caribou, a feisty alcoholic beverage, was popularised ever since the first (Quebec City) carnival. The recipe is attributed to Ti-Père, a commerce that was first established on Ste-Thérèse Street in the lower city, then, more recently, in Old Quebec. Suffice to say a typical drink of caribou contains brandy, vodka, sherry and port... Wow!"
--Fron the offical Quebec Carnival web site.
I drank some Caribou at Carnival and got so blitzed I threw off all my clothes and rolled around in the snow with a hundred other shitfaced frenchmen! Then they poured maple syrupp all over me. What a time!
Common name for the underground mass transit system (subway) in both Montreal, QC and Paris, France. In Montreal the Metro runs exclusively underground on a dedicated electrified third rail right-of-way, with many of the stations having bus terminals. Run under the banner of the STCUM (Societe de Transports du la Communite Urbaine de Montreal--in french) Heavy rail passenger service is handled by a separate agency called AMT (Agence Metropolitain de Transports), and requires a separate zone-base fare system, rather than the transfer you get from the bus.
