We no longer have to sit on our butts inside, staring outside, thinking about all the fun things we could be doing if the sun was out. Now, we can actually go do them. And that includes ditching our cars and public transportation passes and hoping on a Bixi bike.
Montreal's Bixi bikes are pretty much a symbol for the city. As soon as the sun comes out, you can definitely expect to see half the city biking around. And now, they've rolled out yet another deal to make it even easier for you to use them.
OPUS and Bixi are working together on this one, so if you combine the two, you can get half off! This offer is running in June, July, August, and September! And let's face it, those are pretty much the only warm months of the year in Canada.
All you have to do is load your normal STM monthly fare onto your OPUS card and you'll only have to pay $16 for a 30-day BIXI membership instead of the regular $32!
For proof, you just need to show up at a customer service point in the STM network and present your OPUS card already loaded with a valid monthly pass. And then they'll give you a promotional code that will work towards the BIXI pass. And then when you visit the BIXI website, you just have to enter the code in the “Redeem a gift certificate” section of the membership form.
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.
