There Will Be Eel

there will be eels fig. a:  God bless the Eel Hunt!

Yes, it's true.

The Eel Hunters traveled to Kamouraska in search of the last of the season's catch, and though their prey were a wily and slippery lot, they didn't come up empty-handed.  In fact, they brought a few eels back to Montreal, live and feisty, and the next day they were summarily dealt with.

So, not only will there be eel, but They Will Be Smoked.  And tonight we'll be celebrating the Eel Hunt at La QV.

On tap:  eel rillettes with rye bread from the legendary Niemand Bakery, prepared by Julie "Miss Vivres" Rondeau, and an Austrian white (Grüner Veltliner, Domaine Meinklang) selected by Cyril "Boss Soif" Kérébel.

Come one, come all!

Tonight's apéro will only set you back $12.  The festivities start at 5 p.m. and will last until sometime after 9 p.m.  And there's no better way to get yourself in the mood for Raspipav 2012.

La QV, 29 Beaubien E.
