Quebec City advice

    My friends and I will be heading up to Quebec City this coming week to take in the sights and sounds of the winter carnival while drinking copious amounts of alcohol. Only one of us has been there before and he wasn't there long so I was hoping to get some advice from the folks here on: general places to go and see, places to eat and places to drink. Thanks in advance.

    Catch a Nordiques game. Oh wait, all the hockey teams north of the border left.

    Oh my gosh, I love Q.C.! Simply one of the prettiest places I've ever seen.

    Get your ass up to Hotel Frontenac, hang out on the plaza overlooking the St. Lawrence Seaway and don't forget to drop by the Plains of Abraham, site of a huge battle between the British and the French in 1759 (Seven Years' War).

    I'm a nut for church architecture. There's the Notre Dame Basilica and Sainte-Anne-du-Beaupre (amazing place ... check this out: http://www.ssadb.qc.ca/en/index.htm)

    And for heaven's sake, make sure you can get out to a sugar shack.

    And eat, eat, eat! They know how to do it up right there!

    I believe Le Colisee houses a QMJHL team.

    That'd be worth catching, I do believe.

    Oui. Les Remparts ... avec entraineur Patrick Roy.

    Went to Quebec a couple years ago with my wife, and I'm still kicking myself for not buying a Remparts t-shirt while there. If I'm ever up there again ...

    Beautiful city. Old Quebec is tremendous.

    I think it's virtually impossible to have either a bad time or a bad meal in Quebec City.

    Never been, although I'd like to someday.

    Yep, watch Patrick Roy coach the Remparts.

    Also, walk through the old city of Quebec, below the Frontenac. And do breakfast at the Frontenac one morning.

    If you can afford it, STAY at the Frontenac.

    And other than in winter, a visit to the Plains of Abraham is a must.

    The lower (old) city is about as close as you'll get to a European city in North America.
