Montreal - Do internet cafes still exist?

I'm temporarily in Montreal and need to do some work online for my job back home. My laptop is on the fritz and I need access to a computer for several hours per day. Can anyone confirm whether there is an open internet cafe downtown? The closer to Berri station the better.

Toronto For First Timers!?

We're NYCers going on a 2 week trip to Toronto on the 26th. We've never been! What are the new exciting sites? The old established stuff? (Again, we've never been!) We like history, werid engineering dork stuff, movie stuff, dive bars, gayness, unusual stores and secondhand vintage menswear. We don't drive, but we'd like a nice trip out of town by train or even bus. Exciting cuisine a must overall. [more inside]

Where are the good downtown Seattle happy hours?

I'm getting a drink with a friend Wednesday after work in downtown Seattle, and kind of at a loss as to where to go. My ideal happy hour is a Moscow mule or Dark And Stormy with a big plate of fries/tater tots/onion rings. I'm looking for somewhere reasonably priced, within walking distance of Westlake Center, and (perhaps most importantly) will still have a place to sit available when we show up at 5:15 pm. Thanks!

Laundry near Los Angeles Convention Center

I am going to a conference in Los Angeles next week, at the Convention Center downtown. I'd like to do a load of laundry before I leave. According to my hotel (Westin Bonaventure), they don't provide laundry service - only drycleaning - and the nearest place to do it is "a 15-minute drive away." What's the best way to get this done?

Walking around downtown Pittsburgh?

My partner and I are very excited about our trip to Pittsburgh next month! But I have a question about walkability. We'll be staying downtown on Penn Avenue and it looks like we can walk to a lot of places quite easily, but should we? We are big walkers and our city is very residential downtown, but it seems Pittsburgh's downtown gets pretty empty at night...is that a concern re: safety or for any other reason? [more inside]

Downtown Louisville

I am potentially going to be traveling to Louisville, Kentucky, on a business trip. I'm staying for 8 nights and I could stay in the company hotel, but they force us to share, so I'm looking for alternatives that will allow me to have a private room without completely busting my budget. I need to be within walking distance of the Kentucky International Convention Center on 4th between Jefferson and Market. I'm also curious about this neighborhood in general -- safe? walkable?
