Little City Gems: 2

Every first Sunday of the month, the people of ¿Que Pasa Montreal? get their Andalucía on at La Place à Coté. Admission costs $10 and the drinks are rather inexpensive at this grungy little venue of great character. In true Peña Flamenca form, you get to experience an improvised evening of some of the best Flamenco music and dance the city has to offer. Get there early to get a good seat!

Next show: Sunday, January 4th, 8pm
La Place à Coté, 4571 Papineau (corner Mont-Royal)
T: 514.522.4571

Enjoy. :)

Little City Gems: 1

Now may be the winter of our recession, but I am on a gentle quest these days to find new and unique activities about Montreal that are equally gentle on the wallet as well as a nice change from watching whatever on TV at home.

Last night’s activity took place at The Yellow Door at 3625 Aylmer, just below Pine. A scant two hours of poetry, prose and spoken word readings in an intimate space by fresh and established (multi-lingual) writers, and there was even a moving a capella quartet. All for the sum of $5. I left feeling rather fulfilled and inspired to start a series of blog posts of neat things about the city.
