There are two kinds of people in this word: people who take advantage of February and people who stay inside for a month and hibernate. I believe to truly enjoy this sometimes rough month, you have to strike a careful balance between the two.\nThe city knows that February can be particularly unforgiving for Montrealers, so we have several festivals, shows, and events lined up to brighten up the month. Wether you're hitting up Igloo Fest with your friends, sampling some exquisite cheese at Montreal Cheese Fest, or bringing the whole family to Fetes Des Neiges, there is something for everyone in February.\nOver the next few pages we will highlight some of the key events going on in Montreal. Also, giving you some inspiration for how to spend a fun night indoors with your S/O or a group of friends. Make the most of hibernation time before the warm spring air blows into town.\nPage 1 of 5, Click "NEXT"\nView this post on Instagram Best #Pho #Soup in #Montreal A post shared by Ariel (@zestyandspicy) on Feb 22, 2016 at 6:14pm PST\nGrab a warm bowl of Pho at Pho Bang New York in China Town\nNothing like a big toasty bowl of Pho to warm the heart and soul during the deep winter months.
