This year's Orange Is The New Black breakout star (who with her looks alone made every straight girl and gay man alive very sexually confused) will be making her way to Montreal this September. Yeah, we're trying not to lose our minds too.
The Australian model, actress and DJ is going to be headlining New City Gas on September 11 as part of her North American tour. Doors open at 10:00pm and tickets are in the $16-36 range. They go on sale today at noon and will definitely be selling out quickly, so make sure you get yours ASAP.
If you can wait until September to size up her DJing chops, you can check out one of her mixes here:
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.
