This weekend in Montreal is all about the parties.
Well, parties and hockey.
But I guess hockey could be considered a party. It does have beer and music.
Anyway, you get the point. Here are ten (plus) fun things to do this weekend in Montreal.
[hockey] LES CANADIENS – On Saturday night, the boys will be on home ice providing a descent thrashing to the Sabres. Nothing is more Montreal than a late-November hockey game. Order beer and poutine.
[theatre] DON QUIXOTE – Incorporating mask work, flamenco, bawdy slapstick and poignant beauty, this new adaptation of the classic Cervantes novel explores the comical and philosophical world of Don Quixote. Who’s mad in a world gone mad?
[concert] BEATLES STORY – If you were excited about the recent release of the Beatles catalogue on iTunes, then all you need is tickets to this concert. Oh yes, and love.
[spa] ESPACE NOMAD – With countless spa options available in Montréal, it might be hard to make a choice that will be best for your needs. If you are interested in environmental sustainability, Espace Nomad might be the choice for you.
FRIDAY: PARTY PARTY – Celebrate one of Montreal’s most hip/indie gathering place, Il Motore, for it’s 2nd Anniversary. Expect a boisterous crowd.
FRIDAY: MOVEMBER GALA PARTY – If you brought your mustache with you to town, then grease that bad boy up and head on down to the official Movember party!
SATURDAY: MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS @ BELMONT – An alternative dance/synth pop band, which formed in Melbourne. They play dirty-organ-rock, stadium-disco-metal and sci-fi roller-skating jams. One of our favorite venues.
SUNDAY: PEOPL – Weekly Sunday afternoon party for music lovers, featuring resident DJs: Angel Moraes, jojoflores Robert Ouimet and Christian Pronovost. Quickly becoming the chillest thing to do on Sunday.
[gay life] GAYBASH – It gets better. In fact it gets so good that you can throw on some shoulder pads and head down to a party where gay people rule the universe. Be fierce, but smile.
[foodie fun] MAPLE SYRUP – What could be more ‘Quebec’ than maple syrup? Here are some tips on where you can nab some of the sweet stuff.
[art] OTTO DIX – The official title is “Love, Death and the Terrifying and Beautiful World of Otto Dix,” but all you have to know is that the work of this WWII-affected artist is disturbing and beautiful.
