Not only is drinking and getting high a New Year's Eve tradition for most Montrealers, but it leaves some with zero memory of the beginning of 2017. Watching all the drunk fools out on New Year sure is funny, but those who like to remain sober want to enjoy the new year as well. So, I have composed a list of insane and unusual things you should do to celebrate 2017 this year while remaining sober.\nREAD ALSO: Everything You Need To Know About Kevin O’Leary: Canada’s Next Prime Minister\nYou can be completely sober on New Year’s Eve and still have a blast because Montreal is that amazing! In this list, you can expect to find activities for everyone. So, get your sober friends and make 2017 great without forgetting what you did the night before! And hey, just remember that people who drink their minds out might just be doing it because that's the only way they can have fun. While those who are sober just have amazing personalities and have fun without anything!\n1.
