Where you'll be

On Mondays, we will go to Hurley's and McKibbons - two of the most legendary Irish pubs in the heart of downtown Montreal. Normally teeming with guests on the weekend, these pubs turn into intimate comedy clubs on Monday nights when a host of diverse comedians descend upon these hallowed institutions. On Tuesday, we will go to Grumpy's for open mic night, where Barney's Version was filmed and where legendary Montreal writers hung their hats.
