May 24 2018, 2:46 am

Short weeks should happen more often – it’s already Thursday!

Whether you want to head out and hit the town or just take it easy, here’s a list of options for things to do today, May 24.

Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium

Get out of your own head a little bit and head to the planetarium. The Cosmic Collisions exhibition is actually out of this world (we had to). The show presents the result of gravity pulling together planets, stars, and other galaxies. Cosmic Collisions provides an extraordinary view of the forces, either constructive or catastrophic, that continue to shape our Universe. Pretty trippy.

Time: 9 am – 6 pm

Where: 4801 Avenue Pierre-De Coubertin

Price: $16-$21

Foonzo Arcade Bar

Foonzo is a retro arcade bar that features hundreds of old school games and consoles. This nostalgic little basement bar will make you feel like you’re jamming out in a buddy’s basement in the 90s, except with booze. Everything is free to play too. Grab a drink and beat your friends at a variety of classics on everything from N64, Playstation, Super Nintendo, Sega, and Xbox. Duck Hunt and a rum and coke anyone?
