Ok guys seriously, this weather is seriously putting a damper on all my favourite plans. I know I’m not the only one who has been secretly (ok, not so secretly) waiting for summer to be in full effect. I mean, summer is the best part of the year. I’m talking terrasses drinks, sun tanning and saying goodbye to all my sweaters until September.
The only thing that’s keeping me going in the midst of this crappy weather that we have been having lately is the official summer opening of my favourite place in Montreal, Terrasses Bonsecours.
Oh you didn’t know? Well you must be living under a rock. This Thursday, Terrasses Bonsecours is opening their doors to welcome Montrealers to the hottest terrasse in Montreal. If you’ve never been here then this is THE day you’re going to want to check it out, and if you’ve been here before then you already know to get in early to avoid missing out on the hottest party of the summer.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. Terrasses Bonsecours is bringing Wet Wednesdays back this year because the weekend is just not long enough. Did we even really need another excuse to drink? No, but now we have one.
I know I’m not the only one that is always down to have fun on a Wednesday which is why our friends at Terrasses Bonsecours are hosting an epic party every.single.week this summer season!
Now, this is not your average Wednesday night. To put it in perspective, the line starts at 11 AM and people are dressed to impress. I mean, hello, we live in Montreal. We always have to look good, am I right?
Wet Wednesdays also has the best DJ’s playing fire tracks that you just can’t get on Spotify. So besides amazing music, what makes this weekly event so special? Well, I’m glad you asked.
For starters, you get to come hang out on a beautiful terrasse which has a breathtaking 360 degree view of the Old Port which I mean, is pretty surreal. Every single Wednesday is always packed, remember what I said about people lining up at 11 AM. Yeah, I wasn’t kidding. Rain or shine, the party is still going which not a lot of terrasses can say about their venues.
That’s not all guys. They also have some pretty sweet deals on bottles. I mean, it’s like they are encouraging us to have a good time.
So guys, why would you want to be stuck inside on a beautiful Wednesday when you can party outside right under the sun, sipping cocktails all day while working on your tan!
Wednesdays are officially the hottest days this summer. Make sure to check out Terrasses Bonsecour’s Wet Wednesdays party every week and don’t miss their summer kickoff party May 18th. Visit their website for more info!
Attention party animals: on September 11 from 1 to 3 p.m., Montreal's corgis and their owners will be gathering in a downtown park for a special day of fun and fluffy butts.
Organizer YATAI MTL is launching the pooch party after successfully hosting a Shiba Inu gathering in June as part of Montreal's first-ever Japan Week celebrations.
Among the highlights of the Shiba gathering was the presence of "Kombu the Corgi" an adorable fellow "who tried to infiltrate" the Shiba-only affair and underlined the need for a corgi party, reads the invite.
To keep the event from being too overcrowded – as it's sure to be the social event of the year for Montreal's corgis and their people – guests must pre-register and organizers are only disclosing the venue a few days in advance.
Admission is free and the event will be postponed until September 12 in case of rain.

"We, the undersigned, demand that the Government of Quebec publicly reject, as of now, the idea of a mandatory vaccination passport and that it commit itself to do like the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has done, that is to say, prohibit the obligation to present a vaccination passport in order to attend certain events and practice certain activities," the petition states.
Samson, a former Coalition Avenir Québec member who switched sides in June, held a press conference about the petition alongside Conservative Party of Quebec leader Eric Duhaime on August 12. They explained that the party had already collected 133,000 signatures on a previous petition that did not meet the criteria of the National Assembly.
"We reviewed the wording [...] So we're going to ask these hundreds of thousands of people to re-sign their petition on the National Assembly website, and we're going to invite Quebecers who don't agree with the vaccine passport to come forward as well," Samson said.
The petition, which was posted to the National Assembly website on August 12, had garnered more than 75,000 signatures at the time this article was published.
