On Sunday night, the Winnipeg Jets, set to face off against the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Bell Centre, got supremely muff'd up in Montreal. How do we know? Well 25Stanley.com managed to snap some pics of the team, and lets just say that mass amounts of water bottles and a grim-defeated look on the faces of many players points to only one thing: an awful hangover. Trust, we're experts on the matter.
We can't take cred for the theory, as 25Stanley.com first made the claim, finding the Jets on the streets of Montreal and documenting their post-drank woes. According to the hockey site, the Jets had a new recruits party Sunday night, first having dinner at Da Vinci then heading to Muzique on St. Laurent. And if you're going to Muzique, you're getting a little shwastey, or more than a little.
Not every player seems to be in an utter state of despair, and since its been a full 24 hours since the team got Sunday-Funday drunk, it's likely even the most destroyed players spent the day recovering. Or not, hopefully, because I doubt people in Peggy (aka Winnipeg) know how to party like we do in Montreal. A two-day hangover isn't out of the realm of possibilities then.
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.
