But as for good Serious anime with deep stories, Full Metal Alchemist, I highly recommend it.

THIS WEEKEND: 18th-century public market & pirates, privateers and freebooters

at 10:10 - 28th, August 2009
I would like to go see this in the old port this WE:


Take a trip back in time along with farmers, craftspeople, and entertainers as they existed in 1750, at the time of Montréal's first public market. This coming August 29 and 30, it's time once again for Pointe-à-Callière's 18th-Century Public Market.

Throughout the site, you'll find entertainers, storytellers, musicians, farmers, and craftspeople demonstrating their know-how. You'll also be able to sample products from the era: buckwheat pancakes, maple products, cider, spruce beer, and much more. The Public Market also gives kids an opportunity to dress up and learn games from the French period, and to play soldier by marching in a military parade. Recalling the Museum's new exhibition, Pirates, Privateers and Freebooters, and the fact that Montréal is a port city, you'll also be invited to take part in a treasure hunt, help the cook prepare a special meal of salmagundi, and listen to Privateer Louis' plans to sail the seas in pursuit of enemies of the king. Also a must-see: the new tale Le Diable aux vaches - Un conte de l'UPA, created especially for the Public Market. Ubert Sanspré tells the story of how the devil got caught in his own trap.

Pointe-à-Callière's 18th-Century Public Market is presented by the Union des producteurs agricoles (UPA).


Apprentice pirates, young and old, privateers, and freebooters-all aboard! The Pirates, Privateers and Freebooters exhibition is one of this summer's busiest in Montréal, frequented by an impressive number of visitors. This original, dynamic, and interactive exhibition gives you the opportunity to learn a little more about these men and women who plied the waters of North America's eastern seaboard and the Caribbean from the 16th to the 19th centuries. It's a captivating opportunity to discover the amazing stories of these pirates, privateers, and freebooters. Climb aboard the Pointe-à-Corsaire and enlist!
