So, y’all ready to hit June? Not before one last glorious May weekend! Poetry, warehouse record sales and brunches are in store, but if you are too much of a sloth to make any appearances, no biggie: an impromptu BBQ at the park (I look at you Laurier, Jarry and Lafontaine) is definitely time well spent. Who knows what lies ahead in terms of temperature? #EveryMinuteCounts

Pavé Poésie | Mont-Royal Avenue @3pm to late at night
Pavé Poésie returns for its second edition with solid activities to bring poetry to the streets: poetry slam, free outdoor concerts, poetic shooters – NOT A CLUE as to what THAT is, but hey, keep em’ coming! As Carl Bessette once said, “Everyone loves poetry, they just don’t know it”. Well, you have until Sunday to acknowledge that you’re a sucker of pretty rhymes.

Aux 33 tours warehouse sale | 5425 Casgrain, suite 806 @8am to 5pm
For the first time in its history, Aux 33 Tours will open the doors to its warehouse just long enough for you to enjoy a 3-day flash sale. After 8 years of accumulating tons of records, it was time for the space to share its treasures! Each album will be sold for the TINY price of $1. A bargain, you say?
