September hit us all like a ton of bricks. I know I am not the only person that feels like summer came and went in the blink of an eye.
Before we know it, our city is going to turn into a giant skating rink, and before that happens, I want to make sure I make the most of sweater weather, which just so happens to be my favourite fashion season!
This weekend, there are so many interesting things going on in and around our city that it would be a shame to not take advantage of them!
Of particular note are the fall festivals that have already begun to pop up in the Montreal area!
I know I sound like a broken record, but we really are lucky to live in a city that has so much to offer.
From cool festivals and conventions to family friendly activities and live shows, this weekend is really going to be a good one.
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.
