The Montreal Week-Ender: April 24th – April 26th
The Habs won the first round. That's reason enough to party!
Photo cred -
Montreal, the week-end is here and the Habs won the first round of the series. You know what time it is right? It's time to party like it's 1999! We know some of you are still studying for finals but hey, a beer and dancing never hurt nobody. If anything, it'll help you release some stress you're probably under. Take the time to think of other things and let all your lessons simmer in your mind. Go somewhere and raise your glass - cheers to you, for you and the Habs! We, here at MTL BLog, always got your back, so here are the spots not to be missed this week-end;
