The weather is getting warmer, the sun is staying out for longer, and Canadians can finally feel the effects of spring across the country. With everyone in much better spirits this week due to better days ahead, we can finally start looking forward to outdoor activities.
One special event taking place this month falls perfectly into the more welcome temperatures in most parts of Canada, meaning spending some time outside during the evening and night won't be anywhere as miserable as it was during winter months.
In case you didn't know, a giant meteor shower will be visible across all of Canada this month, and you really won't want to miss it.
TL;DR The Lyrid meteor shower will be visible this April 19 to April 25, 2019. The peak of the shower will take place on the night of April 23, with up to 10 shooting stars visible each hour. Canadians will be able to watch the celestial event from anywhere in the country.
According to In-The-Sky.Org, the Lyrid meteor shower will be visible across Canadian skies this April 19 to 25, 2019.
Shootings stars, which are actually pebble-sized debris from space, will reach an altitude of 70 to 100km each evening.
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.
