This past weekend, Montrealers were blessed with some incredible sunny fall weather while they strolled along the Old Port, but it was really the attempt at a record-breaking stunt performed by world-renowned daredevil Ryan Robinson that caught everyone's attention.
The fearless professional highliner attempted an 1,000-foot walk on a 1-inch wide webbing some 80 feet in the air above the Bassin Bonsecours on Montreal's zipline. Robinson's dizzying attempt would have earned him much bragging rights as he tried to beat the previous registered Canadian slackline record by 2.3 times!
Having walked across some of the most stunning location in the world, Robinson was brought to Montreal to promote HemovelTM, an innovative oral treatment for hemorrhoids. Ya, seems pretty random, but the Montreal-based company launched this risky stunt to get people talking about an enduring taboo and a condition that affects millions of Canadians, and well, it worked!

While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
