How did I not hear about Distroboto machines before? They're former cigarette machines which no longer sell cigarettes, but rather, small crafts, books, comics, cassettes, novelties, and so on, for only $2 each. That sounds like the coolest thing ever!
You can find Distroboto machines around Montreal:
Pharmacie Esperanza, 12 St. Viateur O. (coin St. Laurent)
Casa del Popolo, 4873 St. Laurent (métro Mont-Royal)
Le Petit Campus, 57 Prince Arthur E. (métro Sherbrooke)
Le Divan Orange, 4234 St. Laurent (métro Mont-Royal)
La Salla Rossa, 4848 St. Laurent (métro Mont-Royal)
Distroboto locations will increase as cigarette machines become available after the ban on smoking in bars comes into effect May 31, 2006. What a great way to celebrate the end of smoke-filled bars by revelling in indie-art.
