What stylish but versatile mix and match clothing articles and accessories should I pack for three July nights in Montreal and four nights in a cabin off Lake Beverly in Ontario? How do I keep them looking "fresh" despite heat, humidity, and my own unforgiving sweat? [more inside]

Tour Eastern Canada recommendations

My in-laws are flying in from India to Boston. They've never been to Canada and are curious to see the Eastern part including Toronto, Ottawa, Quebuc, Montreal. Do you have any recommendations on guiding tour companies which they may enjoy. (Please note, they aren't open to renting a car, so I'm researching guided tour options). Thanks in advance, -Z

Hospitality Exchange

My partner and I are going to Montreal for a week and we are on a very limited budget. We are looking at staying with people via hospitality exchange rather than in hotels or hostels. Specifically, I've been looking at www.hospitalityclub.com . I was wondering if anyone has done this sort of thing and what your experiences were. What questions do I ask when I'm talking with someone I might stay with? What should I look out for? On another note, ideas for cheap fun in Montreal would also be welcome. We are twenty-something lesbians from small town Alberta.

What to do in Montreal?

Dearest AskMe, my boyfriend and I are going to Montreal for a weekend.

Also: good places for drinking without having to yell over la musique? Please advise us, lest we foolishly miss all the best parts! Merci!
