Two years ago, Montreal first announced plans to deploy free city wide Wi-Fi coverage and it the plan will be taking a big step this summer.
As of now the Free Wi-Fi network can be accessed in the Old Port of Montreal as well as the area surrounding the Palais des Congres.
But now the city of Montreal has announced that the Wi-Fi network will be extended to the downtown core, Quartier des Spectacles and all the way to Griffintown (Quartier de l'Innovation and Jeanne Mance Park)
The announcement is expected to happen today where the city will announce the new expansion phase of the network. 825 stations in total, and the city is also planning on making each of those stations more powerful.
The exact location of the new internet stations is scheduled to be announced today, we will update this article once that information becomes available.
Montreal's iconic Greenspot restaurant is selling hot dogs for $0.74 this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri institution says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
