SUNDAY, JUNE 19

i. street fair!

main madness is a four-day, 24-hour-a-day street fair on st-laurent boulevard ("the main") that takes place twice a summer. after a few days of rain and gloom, the sun finally came out on sunday.

waiting for the 80 bus on park avenue.



getting off at sherbrooke, we walk a few blocks down to st-laurent.

















crowded enough?





















according to my girlfriend, the tattoo means "pig." its owner was asian, though, so i assume it's some pet name.

































say NO to cowboy-hatted hipsters.







he sure looks happy.





finally at the corner of st-laurent and rachel, about 3/4 of a mile up from sherbrooke.

HOW TO MAKE A CHURRO



1. squeeze the dough out of a churro machine.



2. inject it with caramel and deep fry it.



3. roll it in sugar.



4. feed it to happy customers.
