Friends, you know that beautiful feeling you get, deep inside your soul, when you're face deep in a bowl-sized mug of coffee? I do. I'd like to think that coffee is basically magic: you drink it, you feel all warm and happy inside, and in about 20 minutes, you're ready to face the day. And I know a lot of you out there would agree with me.
Well, fellow coffee lovers, do I have some good news for you. Actually, scratch that - this is amazing news.
Anticafé Montreal (294 Rue Ste-Catherine O) is going to be your new best friend, because it offers (wait for it) all you can drink coffee. Yes. You read that right. All the coffee you can possibly enjoy, and all for one flat fee.
Yes, friends. I know. Take a minute to let that sink in. The way it works is super simple, too: the first hour is $3, and in that hour you can drink as much coffee as you can possibly handle. If you want to stay extra - and honestly, who wouldn't? - then every subsequent hour is $2, for a maximum of $9 a day. So, $9 for a whole day of drinking coffee, basically? Okay. Cool. If you need me, I think you know where you can find me from now on.
Oh, and it's not just plain, run-of-the-mill coffee, either. We're talking espressos, cappuccinos, teas, hot chocolates, biscuits. We're talking heaven, friends, with free wi-fi included.
All of this is wrapped up in a super cozy, homey atmosphere, so that you can drink all that coffee and feel like you're chilling at home. Which, as I'm sure the students among us are aware of, is pretty much the perfect recipe for an awesome chill/study spot. Oh, and the cherry on top? Anticafé hosts many, many awesome events, all of them available for you to attend for a tad cheaper than their standard rates.
With Anticafé being the first of its kind in North America (this sort of cafe is big in Russia, and expanding into Europe), you're guaranteed a unique experience. Plus, as much legit coffee as you can handle.
Interested? Get to their Facebook page for more information. Oh, and don't worry. You can thank me once finals come rolling around, you caffeine fiends, you.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.

There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.
