Not only is the weekend right around the corner, but with this weekend being a long weekend, I know many Montrealers are going to want to take advantage of some of the final few days of tolerable temperatures. There are a ton of things to do in Montreal this weekend. So, it's up to you to get up and out of the house and take part in what our city has to offer.
Thanksgiving is a time meant to give thanks for all that you have and spend some time with loved ones. So, why not do all of that and more by creating some memorable experiences with your family and friends?
With the fall at its peak, there are only a few more weeks left until the curse of winter hits again. The sun will be shinning on Montreal for at least some of the weekend, making it the ideal weekend to get out and have some fun.
From diva dance parties to spending 30 hours locked in a coffin, this weekend has got it all and you can be part of the thrill.

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.
