The first Meat on a Stick Power Hour dispatch from contributor Vanessa Butler comes from La Banquise. La Banquise, Montreal's 24 hour poutinerie of record, has been turning out a Pogo poutine for over a decade now, which many boozy, 4:00 a.m. customers thank them for on a regular basis. Aptly named L'Abreuvoir, this cross-bred caloric monstrosity merges Quebec's favourite ConAgra-made cornmeal-battered hot dog on a stick with fries, cheese curds and gravy. Call it ex- or upgraded meat on a stick, belle province-style.
