Montreal Now Has A BYOB Retro Arcade Bar

Gaming has changed over the years. Playing games used to mean going out to the arcades with a bag full of quarters and coming home broke. But now, gaming usually means playing on your own console at home. The good part is, you get to drink and snack as much as you want. The bad news is, you're limited to whatever games you own. Well now Arcade MTL is combining the best of both worlds to bring you their ultimate retro gaming events.

The arcade will be organizing special gaming nights on Thursdays where you and your friends will be able to play every classic arcade and retro gaming console available on-site. The best part is, it's BYOB. So you can bring your own booze. Entrance is $20 and all the games and snacks are free.

There will also be a huge inventory of games for sale.

Located at 2019 rue Moreau #312 / dial #20 at the door (metro Préfontaine), this week's competition (May 28th - 7:00pm - 12:00am) is Once Upon a Time in the West and the game of choice is Wild Gunman.

In what could possibly be the most fun experience you'll ever have getting a vaccine, Piknic Électronik is partnering with the CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l'Île-de-Montréal to host a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic this Sunday, July 11.

The clinic is open to festival-goers as well as anyone visiting Parc Jean-Drapeau. Since it's no secret that drugs and alcohol go hand-in-hand with music festivals, we asked what you should you know if you're planning on getting a vaccine dose and also planning on being inebriated.
