Q: 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: Where is the fest?
A: The fest will be held February 24th, 2013 at the Haymarket Pub & Brewery.

Q: How do I get there?
A: You can drive there, or take the bus. A cab is a excellent plan, too! If you live nearby, you could even walk. We'll get some maps together for you shortly.
Q: How long does it last?
A: There will be two available entry sessions- one for lunchtime gluttony, and one for dinner gluttony. They'll both have the same restaurants, too. Each session will be around 3 hours long.
Q: Is anything besides
poutine eating going on there?
A: Sure there is! There will be beer drinking. There will be fun. There will be voting. And a bunch of other stuff, too. We'll announce it here as we go.
Q: Can my restaurant participate in Poutine Fest?
A: We're currently all booked for 2013. If your restaurant is interested in participating in 2014, please contact us at email@example.com
Q: I have a group who wants to attend together, can we do group sales?
A: Since the response to the event has been overwhelming, we have a much higher demand than we have tickets for the event. The available tickets will be first-come, first-serve when sales are announced and there are no group sales. We highly recommend you act quickly.
Q: I consider myself a poutine aficionado, how can I be considered to judge Poutine Fest?
A: Unfortunately, we already have a full cast of extremely qualified judges- born-and-bred Canadians, talented Chefs and local food critics, among others. But everyone at the fest gets to vote for crowd favorite, so really, everyone's a judge!
