So, it's you or your friend's birthday soon, and you have NO IDEA what to do. Planning birthdays can be really difficult: the 'traditional' birthday party ideas (restaurants, bars) can get old and boring, and you don't want to do something routine for your birthday!\nAt the same time, you want to invite people from different friend groups, and you want to be in a space where people can talk and mingle. A tall order indeed, but the 20 places and events in this list should satisfy those demands.\nGo To The Newest Old Port Show (PY1 Pyramid)\nWhen: From June to September.\nWhere: 360 rue de la Commune, Montreal.\nPY1 is a new, pyramid-shaped venue, presenting immersive nightlife experiences that showcases local talent in a beautiful and original space. Their themed PY1 nights give you an excuse to dress up and go all out. It's going to be FUN.\nView this post on Instagram Prêt pour un avant-goût?
