To get there, we’ve put together an awesome list of things to check out in Montreal today, November 21. Just because it’s not the weekend doesn’t mean we can’t have fun, Montreal!

Chocolate Party

There’s a tasty chocolate party happening in the West Island today and it’s exactly what it sounds like.

Admission grants you all access to the chocolate buffet, a shot of Baileys or Kahlua in a hot chocolate and non-chocolate items like grilled cheese, salads and gourmet hot dogs.

Guests are urged to come dressed in their comfiest clothes because nothing goes better with chocolate than comfort.
