Imagine Van Gogh

Montreal has been coated with an exhibition of the works of Vincent Van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous figures in the history of the art world.

The exhibition, Imagine Van Gogh, which opened last month, takes guests through the world of colours and emotions of Van Gogh’s works through gigantic murals and an immersive soundtrack.

When: Tuesday, January 21
Time: 10 am to 6 pm
Where: Arsenal Contemporary Art Contemporain
Price: $26 – $36, available online

Bleu, Blanc et Bouge

The Montreal Canadiens foundation has six outdoor, refrigerated rinks around the island. The professional-level rinks provide the opportunity for hockey players to develop their skating skills on exceptional quality ice.

The program is divided into six sessions of approximately 45 minutes each.

The rink is free to use but has rather strict schedules so the shinny hockey players don’t hit the ice at the same time as the little skaters.

Rinks can be found at the following spots around Montreal:

  • Villeray-St-Michel-Parc-Extension : François-Perrault Park
  • Montréal Nord : Carignan Park
  • Verdun : Willibrord Park
  • LaSalle : Hayward Park
  • Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce : Confederation Park
  • Ahuntsic-Cartierville : Mésy Park
When: Tuesday, January 21
Time: Varies per rink
Where: Various locations around Montreal
Price: Free

Honey Martin Trivia

Honey Martin is a cozy Irish Pub in NDG that hosts a phenomenal trivia night every Tuesday. There are six rounds of ten questions, and a winner is rewarded each round with either a round of drinks or a round of shots. A round for a round – solid deal.

The questions are all general knowledge, and you’ll absolutely love the trivia host. Buy him a shot and you just might get that European geography question right after all.

When: Tuesday, January 21
Time: 9 pm to 1:30 am
Where: 5916 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest
Price: Free

Scotiabank Cheapie Tuesday Movie Night

This week’s a good one for movies, especially for under $10. Check out Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, 1917, Frozen II, Jumanji: The Next Level, Bombshell, Cats, Knives Out, The Grudge, and much more tonight.

They also have deals on snack combos. Can you honestly say no to that popcorn smell?

Time: Varies depending on selection
Where: 977 Rue Saint-Catherine Ouest
Price: General admission starts at $7
