The World’s Smallest Open Mic

Local comedians Walter J Lyng and Vance Michel host what they call “the smallest open mic show in the world.” The acts aren’t small, the venue is.

The event organizers warn that only 20 seats are available. Cozy, intimate stand-up comedy is the best kind.

Putting Edge Mini-Putt

With golf season quickly approaching, you might want to hone your putting skills.

Encore Books & Records

Encore Books & Records is a cozy, family-run bookshop that sells and buys used books and records.

It’s primetime park and reading time and the store is crammed from the floor-to-ceiling and their prices are just as good as the selection.

Head into Encore and grab yourself a cheap book, find a nice park (Girouard Park is right out front of the shop) or patio, and get lost in a little bit of literature.

When: Encore Books is open year round
Time: 11 am to 9 pm
Where: 5670 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest

London Pub’s Industry Night

They offer industry nights on Mondays. It’s designed to offer inexpensive drinks to bar, pub, and restaurant staff from around the city but it’s slowly morphed into drink deals for everybody. Grab a $4 single or a $3 shot of Jameson. Plus they have a free dart board and an in-house jukebox.

When: Monday, May 13
Time: 7 pm – 3 am
Where: 1337 Boulevard Maisonneuve Ouest
Price: Free to enter, drink deals vary.
