A Night at the Sugar Shack/Cabane à Sucre

    Saturday, March 24, 2012
    5:30pm until 10:00pm

   
Come one, come all to a very special evening of traditional Québecois food, music and maple syrup!

A sugar shack, or cabane à sucre en français, is where maple syrup is harvested. There are thousands of them around Québec and Eastern Canada, but are very typical of french-canadian culture.

On March 24th, come experience a side of Québec you’ve never seen before! Learn how maple syrup is made, get a tour of a real sugar shack, listen to traditional Québecois music and enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner of deliciousness! And of course top it all off with une dégustation de tire sur la neige (maple taffy on snow tasting) !!!

»Tickets are $25 and a bus will bring us there & back!

To get your mouth watering…

Dinner will be:
Soupe au pois du Montagnard (mountain dweller’s pea soup)
Pain croûté de la paysanne (farm-style crusty bread)
Jambon fumé à l’érable (maple-smoked ham)
Fèves au lard de chantier (wood-fired baked beans)
Omelette soufflée de la fermière (farm-style omelette soufflé)
Saucisses de campagne (country-style sausages)
Ragoût de boulettes (traditional meatball stew)
Oreilles de crisse (crispy-fried pork rinds)
Pommes de terre pilées à l’ancienne (old-style mashed potatoes)
Tourtière de la beauceronne (meat pie from Québec’s Beauce region)
Homemade fruit ketchup & pickles
Dessert:
Traditional sugar pie
Pancakes with maple syrup
Coffee and tea


FUN FACTS ABOUT MAPLE SYRUP:

Canada produces 80% of the world’s pure maple syrup, 91% of which is produced in Québec!

30-50 gallons of sap are evaporated to make one gallon of syrup.

A gallon of pure maple syrup weighs 11 pounds.

Maple syrup is the most delicious thing that nature has ever created.
Disagree? THEN COME TO DINNER WITH US AND I’LL PROVE IT!

That’s right kids, your IRC is pairing up with Tom Zheng, the DJ you all heard opening for White Panda, and Chef Brian, both of whom just happen to DJ at both Sucka Free Mondays AND Tokyo Thursday’s, to bring the coast of Mexico, the sand of Hawaii and the sweet taste of a cold Corona to Montreal!

On February 16th, 2012, Bain Mathieu is going through some major renovations and turning itself into the beach we all wish we were going to this reading week. And what better way to start of the reading week than being at the beach!

With palm trees, large glowing moons, and cold beer galore, Bain Mathieu is turning up the heat (literally!!!) for what promises to be no ordinary night out.

Dress to impress (for the beach!) as your IRC is not offering you the boring old ‘coat check’ that so many of us waste $3 on every week. No, your IRC is taking it a step up. For just $3, you can quite literally use our CLOTHES check, to drop off whatever unnecessary clothing items you may be carrying. Thats right, its time to strip down to your swim trunks, tank tops, or even you bikini, and enjoy the warmth that will be Bain Mathieu.

As Bain Mathieu, like Mexico, is a little farther away from campus than normal, your IRC will be providing free ‘flights’ with the purchase of your ticket. Yellow buses will be picking students up from Milton Gates, as well as returning you home at the end of the night (Don’t worry Solin, we have a ‘plane’ for you too). More details to come of exact pick up times!

Tickets will be on sale next week for $10 at BMH, RVC and New Res. Exact times will be sent out in an email by the end of the week! ALL TICKETS INCLUDE A FREE DRINK!!!

Get. Stoked.

Your IRC.

Hey Beautiful New Rez Bodies,

Can’t help but notice the amount of smoking that occurs here.

And can’t help but be a little concerned for your beautiful bodies.

Not trying to scare you or anything (yes, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do)

There’s a big little something called COPD.

COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a long-term lung disease often caused by smoking.

What does COPD do to my lungs?

COPD slowly damages your airways, the breathing tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. COPD makes airways swollen and partly blocked by mucus. It also damages in the tiny air sacs at the tips of your airways. This makes it hard to move air in and out of your lungs.

People with COPD usually have one or more of these symptoms:

  • a cough that lasts a long time, or coughing up “stuff” (mucus)
  • feeling short of breath, especially when you are making an effort (climbing stairs, exercising)
  • many lung infections that last a long time (the flu, acute bronchitis, pneumonia, etc.)
  • wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe)
  • feeling tired (fatigue)
  • losing weight without trying
  • Why is it important to get COPD diagnosed early?

    When COPD is diagnosed early, it’s easier to treat. If you don’t catch COPD early, it will be harder to treat and you will have more symptoms and more lung damage.

  • What’s the outlook for COPD? What can I expect?

    COPD is progressive— it gets worse over time.

    Having COPD may put you at risk for other health problems, including:

  • frequent chest infections, including pneumonia and the flu (influenza)
  • pulmonary hypertension: higher-than-usual blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs
  • heart problems
  • osteopenia or osteoporosis, the thinning of the bones
  • eye problems like glaucoma and cataracts
  • cachexia: losing body mass and muscles, losing your appetite, feeling nauseated and weak
  • malnutrition: not getting enough nutrients from food, not eating enough
  • weak muscles
  • lung cancer
  • Getting the most out of life when you have COPD

    If you have COPD, it’s important to learn how to take care of yourself. And it’s important to reach out for help and company.

  • What causes COPD?

    In countries like Canada, smoking causes about 80% of COPD cases. Other things that can cause COPD are:

  • second-hand smoke
  • air pollution (dust or chemicals)
  • having repeated lung infections as a child
  • a rare condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency

And so I conclude with: I copy and pasted this info from http://www.lung.ca/

And also that I love you all, stay safe and healthy.

LOVE YOUR BODIES. (you won’t be young forever, sorry)
