La Champagnerie, on the brink of opening to the public this Wednesday, May 29, 2013, is Montreal's one and only bar specializing in champagne and all things bubbly. And sabery. The Old Montreal hot spot is taking carbonated vino to the next level, offering an on-the-spot saber service for select champagnes, reawakening the masses to the noble art of sabrage. That's fancy talk for whack-open-bottle-with-sword.

Why not? Napoleon and his troops allegedly did it. And if it's good enough for a pint-sized tyrant bent on world domination, then hey! [Insert rimshot].

Right. So I'll be dropping by La Champagnerie's pre-opening, get a feel for the place and report back to you as pronto as possible.
