Although the heat has yet to invade Montreal this summer, its imposition is near.
With the scorching sun and heavy humidity, we'll most likely be inclined to keep the fabric minimal when pulling out closet items.
However, along with sustaining a cool comfort level, keeping it classy with a stylish ensemble is just as essential. Frank & Oak's June collection for men is perfect for putting together a trendy and lightweight outfit this summer. Inspired by the anticipation of the sweltering summer sun in the Mediterranean, the collection was enthused by the excitement of summer's adventure and celebration.
When Montreal meets summer, it witnesses a surreal setting of bright skies, freckled faces and long nights. There's a certain vibe in the city, and if you've ever spent a summer in Montreal, you know all about the buzz. Matching that feeling with its look is important, and with Frank & Oak's extensive line of fabrics, soft colors and fresh patterns, the city will not only feel, but also appear bustling.
Although this past week hasn't exactly seen summer, our model got the chance to pose in some of Frank & Oak's stylish shirts. We picked up a six pack of brews and celebrated the anticipation of Montreal's long awaited summer.
Check out our model sporting some of the stylish pieces of Frank & Oak's June collection.
It's bold color yet untailored shape is perfect for any MTL dude who's not afraid of standing out. Sport this bright tee at the top of the mountain on Sunday afternoon's Tams and relax in its thin cotton fabric.
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.
