Quebec City's beer garden pool, La Cour arrière du Festibière, has announced it's reopening its terrasse for the season on May 28, and it might be the coolest spot to get a drink in the province — literally.
As Narcity Québec reports, the pub features chairs and tables in a shallow pool where patrons can sip a beer while dipping their feet in the water.
"Overall, the City of Montreal saw 990 $1 million–plus residential real estate transactions," including condos, attached and single-family homes, "in the first half of 2021, an increase of 112% from the same period in 2020," the report states.
Though sales in $2 to $4 million homes in Montreal rose by 138%, sales in $1 to $2 million homes made up the largest share of sales overall, with 807 Montreal properties sold in the first half of 2021, Sotheby's says.
Sales in properties over $4 million more than doubled between 2020 and 2021 — just six were sold in the first half of 2020, compared to the 14 properties sold in the same period in 2021.
The report said that according to the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers, on average, selling a residential property in Montreal during the first quarter of 2021 took approximately 44 days, compared to the 68 it took to sell a home less than a year prior.
This video shows Montreal street names being changed to New York ones. MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki was able to have an individual confirm that it was allegedly part of the filming for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
And from what the following photos show, it's looking like there are all kinds of different cars in whichever film is being shot at the moment, which is very on-brand for a Transformers movie.

We know Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts is for sure being filmed in Montreal, we simply cannot confirm this movie set is for the film — although it's highly likely to be. And if that's true, then that means Anthony Ramos, one of the main actors in the new movie, could be in Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled!

Now that the dust has settled on the Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup loss, Habs fans have pointed out that Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy's uniform looked suspiciously inflated in a post-game photo.
And since we all know Habs fans are the calmest and most level-headed hockey fans out there, the question is: did Vasilevskiy really use illegal goalie equipment or is this a nonsense complaint from sad and angry Canadiens fans?
The photo in question, posted on TSN's official Instagram page, shows Carey Price and Vasilevskiy standing face to face with Vasilevskiy looking awfully puffed up compared to Price — from the viewer's perspective, at least.
Following Wednesday's game, several Habs fans took to Twitter with unfounded accusations of illegal equipment.
Did Tampa hoard an extra player inside Vasilevskiy’s equipment? That’s so typical. Cheater franchise. https://t.co/CRSAIigOjO
