Q: WAIT. Is poutine that crazy food they eat in Montreal that is french fries and sauce and everything?
Q: Does eating poutine cause you to have a heart attack?
A: Well, maybe. If you eat ONLY poutine. But we are not doctors, so we can't say.
Q: Do you have to be French to eat poutine?
A: Although this is a common misconception, no! Anyone can eat poutine, from small children to the elderly.
Q: If you can't pronounce it can you still eat it?
A: Yes! Although we suggest you cram more fries into your mouth, or call it "that delicious gravy-cheese-potato-stuff, you know, whatsitcalled?" so that no one makes fun of you.
Q: How do I get there?
A: Chop Shop/ 1st Ward is located right off of the Damen Blue Line stop. You can drive there, or take the bus. A cab is a excellent plan, too! If you live nearby, you could even walk.
