“This last season should not be watched alone,” claims the popular Fabuleux Chez Serge, who will be screening every episode of the final season on all of their giant screens, with surround sound.

Chez Serge will be dishing out free popcorn and guests who bring their own chalice, stein, or drinking horn will get $1 off on all drinks.

Plus, the bar has that mechanical bull. If any of the episodes get too intense, that bull might be a good ride to let off some steam.

Chez Serge stresses that “your silence is golden” during the screening.

Time: 8 pm
Where: Fabuleux Chez Serge, 4281 boulevard Saint-Laurent

If you thought this year’s winter was was scary, you’ve got another thing coming.

After doing studies in Savannah, Georgia (dubbed “America’s most haunted city”), the paranormal research crew has jumped over to Montreal for the first-ever Haunted Pub Crawl in the city.

Led by a professional ghost storyteller, the Haunted Montreal Pub Crawl will visit four of the city’s most haunted bars, because mixing ghosts and booze is the only smart way to deal with the paranormal. The tour will start at Charlie’s American Pub on Bishop Street before heading to the recently-burned down John Doe Pub, the historic McKibbin’s Irish Pub, the mysterious Sir Winston Churchill Pub, the frequently-visited (not just by the living) Club Le Cinq and, of course, Hurley’s Irish Pub, where a ghost known as the “Burning Lady” is said to still lurk on the grounds.

When: Sunday, April 21
Time: 3 pm for English, 4 pm for French
Where: The tour starts at Charlie’s American Pub, 1204 Bishop
Price: $20.87, available online

Say hello to Easter by saying hello to some wax figurines.

Check out your favourite actors, athletes, and artists in wax form. The figurines are displayed beautifully through the four-floor museum that also features optical illusions and interactive displays. It’s admittedly pretty creepy staring into Elvis’ eyes, especially if he starts blinking.

When: Sunday, April 21
Time: 10 am to 6 pm
Where: 705 Rue Saint Catherine (4th floor of the Eaton Centre)
Price: $19.50 for adult, $13.50 for children, $15.50 for youth and students and $18 for seniors

Sucrerie de la Montagne

It’s not really springtime until you’re sugar shacking.

Sucrerie de la Montagne lets guests experience real Quebec traditions. Maple syrup is produced the old-fashioned way on site – the tree is tapped with a spout, the sap is collected in a pail and transported to a traditional wood-fired evaporator, where it is transformed into maple syrup.

And guess what? You can have it.

There’s also horse-drawn sleighs, wagons, and an all-you-can-eat sugaring-off feast.

When: Sunday, April 21
Time: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Where: 300, Chemin St-Georges, Rigaud
Price:$14 – $34, available online
