8am: Habitat 67 Montreal's Trudeau Airport staff are barely in place when I disembark from the plane.In no time, I'm racing toward the nearly 50-year-old Habitat 67, Moshe Safdie's thesis at Mc Gill University turned model housing project for the World Fair Expo.
Working in the media industry, we tend to get a lot of invites sent our way and being the token single gal on the UE team, I tend to be the chosen attendee for all events pertaining to dating.
This month, two such events fell into our proverbial lap: Dashing Date and Cook and Date. Meeting new people in the post-university phase of life isn’t the easiest task.

Safdie had hoped his diagram would become an opus to affordable housing and prefabrication, but its desirability transformed it into a very successful coop.

This popular breakfast spot delivers; perfectly scrambled eggs, sprinkled with cardamon, rose petals and crushed nuts, are paired with sweet bread embedded with traces of black sesame paste, all washed down with a bitter strong tea.
