Spring is in the air! Well, not quite yet, but very soon temperatures will begin to warm and trees will start to blossom. It's the time of year when everyone in the city comes out of hibernation and celebrates the end of a long and cruel winter. Lucky for us, this year we have an extra special way of celebrating the arrival of spring.
Of all the things Montrealers love most about the start of spring and warm temperatures, the reopening of terrasses has got to be the most anticipated.
So, why not bring on this tradition as soon as we can guarantee that winter is behind us, the snow has melted, and we can enjoy our time outside in nothing more than a light jacket?
TL;DR From May 20 to May 31, Invasion Cocktail will be bringing 250 different cocktails to 30 restaurants and bars in both Montreal and Quebec City for the ultimate spring festival. Admission is free, but make sure you download your cocktail passport for even more savings. More details below.
