while stuffing your face with candy and hot chocolate, and wrapped in 2-3 cozy blankets under the stars?
Parcours Gouin, which aims to allow the population of Ahuntsic-Cartierville to enjoy green spaces and parks along the prairie river, offers you another way to celebrate Halloween this year. Here, The Nightmare Before Christmas will be shown on a big screen for free on Halloween. And small snowflakes may be visiting.
The screening will take place at Parcours Gouin, between 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. This means you'll have the rest of the evening to do something else, like preparing your visit to one of the many haunted houses in Montreal and its surroundings.
To avoid getting too cold, I advise you to bring a hot drink, some blankets, and a friend who you can cuddle up with to warm up. The organization also specifies that you must bring your own folding chair.
The Nightmare Before Christmas tells the story of Jack Skellington, who lives in the city of Halloween.
Jack discovers what Christmas is and wants to share his discovery with his city. Will he be able to bring the magic of Christmas to the most terrifying city in the world, Halloween, while many scary creatures live there?
Here is the film's trailer in case if you want to refresh your memory:
It's a movie that's fun to watch, no matter how old you are - especially in a scary Halloween atmosphere.
Can't make it to the Bas Saint-Laurent this summer? No problem. The city's latest culinary catch, Pincette, is landing in Old Montreal.
Led by Chef Khelil Ben Ammar formerly of Nelligan and Su, and "inspired by Montreal's vibrant culinary scene," the new Montreal lobster bar aims to "bring the East Coast experience to Montreal," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The décor sets the scene. The dining room evokes an elevated lobster shack with a "chic Montreal-European vibe." It even has charming lobster trap light fixtures.
Among the mouthwatering menu items are lobster mac n' cheese, a lobster roll, lobster poutine and a lobster club sandwich, as well as many other seafood treats and dishes (gotta highlight the cod fritters!).
In what can only be described as WTF, a video posted to Café Myriade's Instagram page shows an unknown individual approach a row of flowers planted in front of the cafe's avenue du Mont-Royal location and pull out a whole bunch of them while another individual looks on.
But the real question is: why?
For its part, the café did have a good sense of humour about this.
Café Myriade told MTL Blog that this happened at 3:45 a.m. on Monday morning. They didn't file a police report.
"We did replant what we could," they said.
"If it needs some filler we will gladly do some gardening."
