7 Things You Can Do In Montreal This Friday, Saturday, & Sunday

Hello Montreal! Is it just me, or did January zip right by? I'm not complaining by any means, because when you look at the bright side, spring is only a few weeks away!

But before spring officially comes around, there are still a couple solid weeks of winter (sorry), but the good news is these are the last few weeks to fully embrace this winter wonderland before it literally melts away.
