The reason for this? Last night, the Toronto Raptors faced the Golden State Warriors for the first ever NBA Finals game played on Canadian soil. This is a historic win for the Raptors, and a surprise to many Canadians.
Not to mention that Drake, the unofficial team mascot, is engaging in all sorts of courtside antics to keep Canadians entertained.
And, though all Canadians are currently rooting for the Toronto Raptors, that doesn't mean that we are going to be rude about it.
There were reports that some fans set fireworks outside of the Warriors' hotel window at 3 AM to interrupt the team's sleep, but this apparently hasn't ruined the Warriors' impression of Canadian fans.
In an interview with ESPN, Warriors guard Klay Thompson said that fans came at him with the "nicest heckle ever."
Montreal's iconic Greenspot restaurant is selling hot dogs for $0.74 this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri institution says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
