Nuit Blanche

nuit blanche (8)Nuit Blanche is a super fun festival we have in Montreal where for 1 winter day and night you can go around to the city to all these museums, café’s, art galleries and more to see artwork, participate in activities, see bands and so much more. I love it even though the last few years I haven’t put much effort into finding activities to do for the whole night up until the 3am cut-off. We actually spent more time checking the Montreal en Lumiere festival that we hadn’t had a chance to see yet instead of seeing art….

The next day we wanted to go back as the Montreal en Lumiere festival had one more day left but we were way too tired and lazy.

nuit blanche (1)Victor is a little pissed at me because he wanted to go to the Belgo building which we went to on our first Nuit Blanche years ago that had 4 levels of art studios to check out (we were actually a block away from the  Belgo building earlier) and they ended up playing at 12am instead of their supposed time. We ended up waiting around for an hour and a half and they played a full hour set. I looked online while we were waiting and it said the other events will go on to 3am but by the time the concert was over and we had walked there…there was literally no art studios open. :( Let’s just say we were a little bummed about it.

Ps. This was actually posted on Friday night at 11pm because I hadn’t finished it by Wednesday night and then I got really drunk with my co-workers have an extra shitty shift at work and was too hung over all of Thursday for blogging)
