Sugar shack treats and lumberjack games in Verdun

Urban sugar shack on Wellington.jpgNo doubt about it - maple is the flavour of the month in Quebec.
And even those who can't get their maple fix at a sugar shack in the woods, can find one in the city.

This weekend, one of the biggest of those urban cabanes à sucre is spreading out over four blocks in Verdun. It's the annual Sugar Shack - and they're inviting everyone to join them on Wellington street to play - and eat - like a lumberjack.

Clara Barron is the co-owner of Blackstrap BBQ in Verdun, and the spokesperson for the Sonali Karick in studio just before the event gets underway.

**The Sugar Shack event gets underway today and tomorrow from 11am to 5pm on Wellington street.
That's between de L'Église and Gordon streets, just outside of the De L'Église métro station.
