You may remember about a year ago, women were dyeing their underarm hair all the colours of the rainbow, which was both fun and odd at the same time. Well move over furry feminists, because there's a new trend in town and it's sure to inspire the beard fetishist of the city, and we know there's no shortage of those.
If you didn't get a chance todecorate your beard for Christmas, not to worry. Now's the prefect chance to get really creative with your rebellious bristles by dyeing them your favourite colours. If you don't have any long whiskers of your own, find someone who has, and add some much needed pizzazz to our otherwise bland and monochrome winter. You know you want to.
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.
