GARDEN CUP @ FRANK APRIL’S


Garden Cup • Stage 3 @ Frank’s

The show is coming to an end. If you’re reading this from eastern Canada, you just got peed on by 100mm of rain. What a great fucking way to celebrate Christmas and the beginning of winter. Perfectly sums up this past year. And if you’re out West, kick up a face shot for the rest of us. Although it just rained, this third stage at Frank April’s backyard was the coldest of the season so far. Something like -25 degrees, should I even say “Classic”?

We all gathered responsibly in Notre-Dame du Portage, two hours north of Quebec City, where Frank just moved. Even though it’s chilly in the winter, can’t wait to check out his new pizza place in the summer. The sun was shining, the brews were freezing, but the smoked meat sandwiches were warm and welcoming. Hope you liked the Garden Cup. See you next year!

This guy doesn’t need an introduction anymore, MVP.
