May has been pretty good to us in preparation for the summer months.
All in all, a lot of things happening around Montreal today to celebrate the last day of the month. Even if the weather doesn’t hold, we’ve got you covered as you set your sights on the weekend.
Charlotte Cardin is a jazz, electro, and pop singer/songwriter from Montreal. She’s bringing her stunning voice to the Sainte-Thérèse d’Avila Church before she sets off for Toronto and then the States for the rest of her North American tour. Check her out, as her hit ‘Main Girl’ has over 7 million views on YouTube.
When: Thursday, May 31
Time: Doors at 7 pm, show at 8 pm
Where: 10 Rue de l’Eglise, Sainte-Therese
Tickets: $33 to $80 – available online
Blow off some steam (or prepare for a zombie apocalypse) by tossing some axes. The indoor range has 11 lanes where you can comfortably throw a variety of axes monitored by supervisors and instructors. The facility can host up to 60 people so bring your friends, a lot of them. You get an hour worth of axe throwing so make sure to stretch beforehand!
When: Rage: Axe Throwing is open year round
Time: 10 am – 11:30 pm
Where: 1436 Rue Amherst
Admission: $40 – $55 per target, per hour. Tickets available online.
You may not be able to sneak off to Hollywood or New York City to see your favourite celebrities, athletes, and artists this weekend, but you can still see them in wax form. If the rain’s too much today, check out Montreal’s only wax museum. The figurines are displayed beautifully through the 4-floor museum and it admittedly gets kind of creepy staring into Elvis’ eyes.
When: Open year round
Where: 705 Rue Saint Catherine (4th floor of the Eaton Centre)
Admission: $19.50 for adult, $13.50 for children, $15.50 for youth and students and $18 for seniors available online and at the door.
We’ve already escaped the cold winter months, now try your luck at escaping from a prison, a military facility, a lost temple, or a laboratory. Make a reservation, choose your adventure, and then you have anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to get out of any respective room. Each mission is reserved solely for your group and you’re given a walkie-talkie in case you need hints/get scared.
When: Amaze is open year round
Time: 2 pm – 10:30 pm
Where: 3550 Rue St. Jacques
Admission: $15-$30 per person depending on the chosen mission. Make your reservation first online
