    Orange Julep Gibeau: Hot dogs and Hot Rods

    There's no other place like Orange Julep in Montreal. Or Canada. Or anywhere else for that matter. A tradition as old as the three-story fiberglass fruit that features the weekly event, the Julep hosts informal car shows alongside its usual serving of hot dogs, poutine and a joy-inducing mystery beverage every spring, summer and fall Wednesday as well as on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    Attracting families, car buffs, nostalgic types, and a cross-section of most age groups, I dropped by the Orange Julep on a hot and sticky August eve. Lucking out, that night featured great finds, from a Ford '37 with Corvette engine to Simon Templar's ride to four AC Cobra replicas.
