|Cruise Night at Smoke Meat Pete's|

Finally got a chance to check out the cruise night at SmokeMeat Pete’s in Ile-Perrot this past Monday. It’s worth the drive, especially if you live in the West Island. It’s a smallish cruise night with a neighbourhood feel and there were lots of people out admiring the classic cars. The night I was there, there were several 70s muscle cars, some very nice hot rods, and even a Volkswagen camper van. I’ll be posting more photos later this week once I’ve had a chance to go through them.
If you’re driving, you might want to park a little way down the street as the parking lot had not only the cars out for the cruise night but also customers of Smoke Meat Pete’s and the DQ immediately across the road. We enjoyed the smoked meat and smoked turkey sandwiches while we sat on the porch and watched the cars arrive. There were other choices on the menu that I’ll have to sample another time, such as chicken and ribs, and prices seemed reasonable.
While we left before the band started playing, the sound system was pumping out blues, which added to the atmosphere. It was a good outing for my first cruise of this year.
