From indulging in Nutella crepe sushi to ice skating in the gorgeous Old Port, here is everything you need on your social calendar today.
What: C’ChoColat has done it again. A few months ago, it came to our attention that Montreal’s premiere dessert restaurant, C’ChoColat, was serving up a chocolate bomb. Just like the chocolate bomb, their latest creation is a definite crowd pleaser and it is none other than the Nutella Sushi Crepe. Comprised of nutella, banana, a soft crepe, and three different chocolate dips in the form of white, milk, and dark, chocolate, the Nutella Sushi Crepe looks seriously delicious. The plate comes with 8 pieces of sushi for $15 and is perfect for sharing with a group of chocolate-addicted friends.

Go on a tobogganing adventure
What: Take your date on a classic winter adventure: tobogganing down one of the city’s many hills. Whether you’re more of a plastic disk, magic carpet, or wooden sled kind of person, there are plenty of places to enjoy an afternoon whizzing down Montreal’s natural slopes. Mount Royal, Parc Lafontaine, and Westmount are great places to go tobogganing this winter. Note: if you have your own sled, this activity is free, and if not Dollarama typically sells magic carpets for as little as $2.
