In the world of mixed media as we know it today, it can be a challenge to cut through all the noise and effectively deliver your message to the masses. This rings especially true for most of us millennials, who at the sight of an ad, quickly and mercilessly hit the skip button without hesitation.
When it comes to selling your old stuff, popular sites like Kijiji have figured out how to make it super easy to spread the word. So much so, Kijiji recently got extra creative about advertising themselves with a series of raps featuring local artists such as WASIU and Meryem Saci, lyrically waxing about what you can find on the website.
Kijiji decided to turn it over to the public, asking for user submissions of their own to receive the full rap treatment by the artists. The results are hilarious.
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.
