I am looking for activities to do around Montreal March 14th.  I do
not want to spend the day travelling, and i am looking for something
that will change our routine of going out to the movies and eat.

However there are a few things to consider
   2 30something people (couple)
   An anniversary day for the guy
   The guy has 40% vision so museums biodome, etc... are out unless it
is really interesting and easy to see
   The women is not very into sports but could make a half a day effort ;)
   Not heavy drinkers
   Usually enjoy gaming (board games, magic the gathering, video games)
   Consider the weather
   Probably don't want to watch a parade (not much entertainment to stay idle)

Can you help ?

Hello Marlie,
The Montreal tourism office sponsors an excellent and informative website.
On March 14, the site lists three events this weekend that may be of
interest to you and your friend.

The first--"Butterflies Go Free" at the Botanical Garden--may be out
because of the vision problem you mentioned. However, the prospect of
tropical butterflies alighting on you may be alluring on a cold March

The second seems ideal for such a day: "Hot, Bitter, Sweet. The World
Of tea, Chocolate and Coffee" at the Chateau Ramezay Museum (a lecture
on coffee and tasting takes place on March 13.)

The third is a film festival: the 22nd Annual Festival of Film on Art,
which as you see has a bunch of programs at several venues on March

So that's for starters.

Musically speaking, Opera de Montreal offers a double-bill of 20th
century music: Bluebeard's Castle by Bartok and Ewartunbg by

And if you would like some lighter fare, there's some tropical heat
(and gaming) to be had at the Casino de Montreal.

As you see the casino is paying tribute to Rio with lots of fun stuff
going on throughout the building. In Le Cabaret, the show Bombay Blue
sounds pretty hot, too.

And heat may be desirable. The Montreal weather forecast for Sunday,
March 14 is:Partly sunny with temperatures no higher than 38 degrees

Have fun! After doing this research, I wish I were going to Montreal this weekend!

Thank you for the answer

I don't know if i am pushing my luck here, i did not read all the
rules of this new "feature" i am using here... which is very
interesting by the way...

But would it be possible to just have ideas on some things that might
no be special for that day, just going to somewhere that is out there
but we never go to... someone proposed to me to go interior rock
climbing and i already reserved to go at 1PM it takes only an hour..
so i still have the rest of the day to take of..  For restaurants we
can figure out an ordinary place to eat for supper.. but what for the
rest of the evening (until 11PM maybe)

Maybe you could just give me things that you do ordinarely when you go
out and i can find a place ??

Thank you again !!

Hello again Maralie,
How about visiting the Musee Juste Pour Rire (the Museum Just for Laughs).
The only museum of its kind in the world.

And, before or after, drop into Montreal's most famous delicatessen's,
which is nearby:

I deduce from your plans to rockclimb that you like to stay active, so
how about heading for beautiful Mont Royal Parc high above the city
for guided snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or inner tubing down
groomed trails. Check it out at:

Have fun!
