There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Tibetan fare and drinks at Shambala Tibetan Restaurant on Rue St-Denis. Mouths gobble eclectic dishes derived from Tibet in this Zen-inducing eatery located in downtown. Dabble in six delectable handmade momos dumplings ($7.99), plumped with potato or beef fillings as bottoms find solace from a wooden chaired world atop traditional pillow seating.
- I recommend the dumplings to begin, and then any of the choices from the meat dishes. – jberger, RestoMontreal
- The beef dumplings were quite good, with some flavors in there that were different than the Chinese food I am used to. – Tim P., Yelp
The Groupon Guide to: Jumping Off a Bridge
If all of your friends jump off a bridge, don't just stand there like a loser—jump in after them! Or, instead of bowing to peer pressure, create peer pressure by being the first to jump. Here's a guide to extreme sports that make jumping off a bridge seem like child's play:
Base Jumping: Only the fearful, children under 6, and pregnant women go bungee jumping anymore. Base jumping allows you to leap off your favorite bridge, antenna, space needle, or man-built cloud ladder without a cumbersome safety harness. XTREME TIP: As when riding a bicycle, a helmet can seriously impair your peripheral vision and should not be worn.
Sky Boarding: Regular skydiving is recommended only for the elderly and those with heart problems. The truly extreme go sky boarding—it's like skydiving but with a cool board strapped to your feet, and instead of a parachute, your pack is stuffed with firearms. XTREME TIP: A rigid helmet can injure your delicate cranium on impact and should not be worn.
Cloud Drinking: This extreme sport combines falling from an extreme altitude with drinking an extreme amount of grain alcohol. Your brain will "feel the rush" as you plummet towards earth protected only by your newfound confidence. XTREME TIP: At the end of the day, wearing a helmet just doesn't look cool.
