There's even a fabulous drag brunch happening that includes tacos. Can you get more Montreal than that?

After a long week of work, it's important to disconnect and do something for yourself. And, in a city as vibrant as Montreal, there's almost always something interesting for you to do. 

This weekend is a great time for you to either stay home and get some much needed alone time or go out and explore what our beautiful city has to offer.

Before we know it, it's going to be winter. So this weekend is one of the last times we have to the hot weather we've been complaining about all season!
