On the contrary, we live in Montreal which means that there is something happening every single night. Yeah it might be cold out but there are a lot of events happening this month... one of which combines some fineeee whiskey, local beer and some seriously delicious food! Oh, and did I mention live shows and good music to keep you partying all night?

If there ever was a drink to keep you warm during the cold winter months, it's alcohol! And what's better than alcohol, well drinking and socializing with your friends of course!
