May 24th, 2012
If it weren’t for so many events happening in the city, we’d be heading off-island to enjoy our weekend. Here are three superb reasons to stay put.
We’re craving a springtime spruce-up for our home and getting insider insight from top designers on Saturday, May 26th at the Montreal International Design show ($20 per adult).
One day, 29 museums, zero dollars. Sunday, May 27th is Montreal Museums Day and while we’re on the fence about whether we’ll choose one of six circuits (complete with transportation) or freestyle according to our fancy, we know we’ll discover some new gems along the way.
Get your garden on
For urban gardening tips and tricks (ie. can I actually grow tomatoes on my postage stamp sized patio?), we’re heading to the 15th Great Gardening Weekend ($15 per adult) at the Montreal Botanical Garden where 100 exhibitors will be on hand to answer our questions and show off their wares. —Christine Laroche
