Pizza Lilass

- EvilGentleman - Sunday, April 15th, 2007 : goo

Browsing articles in Montreal, QC - [previous] :: [next]

Located two doors east of Le Spectrum, is this strangely named pizzeria. Lilas is the French word for lilac, and I see flowers on the sign, but I could not find any meaning for the word "lilass". I suspect either a typo, or a weird way to get attention.

Could it be joual for little ass?

I had thought of the same, but the lil' contraction is pretty rare in Quebec.

This article and Le Spectrum are actually different cropped portions of the same photo. I usually don't do that sort of thing, but they were definitely different subjects to me.

Pizza Lilass is justy NE of the Spectrum, on the E corner of this intersection. And no, I have no clue what is with the funky circles on the roof to the south, but I am now quite curious.
