Here at MTL Blog there is nothing we love more than tipping you off to great free stuff in Montreal. So we are pleased to let you know that next week you'll be able to feast on free hot dogs at one of the city's longest standing Poutineries and Hot Dog spots.
Chez Ma Tante will be celebrating their 90th birthday on June 1st and to share in the fun, they're inviting Montrealers to join them for free hotdogs at their original location.
It is truly impressive to know the hot dog stand has been a Montreal staple since 1929, so if you've never been there, you've got to experience this place!
As the flyer above indicates, the party will run from 11 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 at Chez Ma Tante.
Free Hot Dogs will be available between 12 PM and 1 PM, so come early and come hungry! Chez Ma Tante is also known for their classic poutine and awesome dog toppings.
The place is standing-room only, so you'll have to pull up some curb if you're looking to take a seat while you enjoy your dog.
The party is also going to have lots of events for the whole family, so bring the whole crew along for a free dog if you're not doing anything this June 1st. Be reminded that free dogs are limited to one per person.
They also note that there will be "several surprises" happening throughout the day, in addition to activities for kids, so don't think it's only free dogs on the agenda.
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.
