There is no better feeling than rewarding yourself after a week of hard work. I know I am not the only one who constantly finds themselves "working for the weekend" and counting down the hours before that sweet freedom that I call Friday après 5. For those of you looking to take on the cold, this weekend is jam-packed with cool things to do in Montreal.
This weekend also happens to be the first following Valentine's Day, making it a perfect opportunity to shower someone you love with all kinds of attention.
Valentine's Day may be a "cheesy" holiday, but it is also an amazing opportunity for you to show that special someone how much you truly care.
From photoshoots at HideSeek to a romantic fondue for two, this weekend has the potential to be memorable for a lifetime.
Trust me, I love staying home and binge-watching TV as much as anyone, but there is nothing more fun than leaving your house and exploring the magnitude of greatness that lives outside your apartment. Go out and take in the glory that is Montreal, you won't regret it!
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
