It’s the time of year when butternut squash is on the dinner menu, apple picking is a weekend activity, and roasted pumpkin seeds are smelling up your kitchen. The climax of this delicious season is Halloween party weekend, and no doubt your Facebook event list is growing by the day. What to do when your wallet is kinda empty and you’re looking for a not-too-cheesy party option? Enter Montreal’s most famous pub and microbrewery – Brutopia.
On Saturday, October 30th, get revved up for a frightful night as Bru is hosting a hot Halloween party. While the pub has been a main stay on Crescent for as long as we can remember, it used to be a tad cramped on a busy night. But they’ve renovated to open the place up, giving it a better flow and much more room to get your groove on.
The best part of the night? First You Get the Sugar is playing a FREE show all night long. Soon to release their debut album which is jam-packed with original music, this band is about to explode onto the scene. Bru veterans, they’re sure to keep the party going with their high-energy tunes and dashing good looks. They’re continuing their tradition of donning a musical costume and playing an album “Cover 2 Cover” for one of their sets. This time, it’s The Strokes debut “Is This It”. With three sets of pumping music, FYGtS is the perfect band to help you get your party on, Halloween-styles. Get them free, while you still can.
What more could a Bandit ask for? Great music, free cover, hot guys in a band, an excuse for a skimpy outfit, and delish raspberry beer! It’s a real treat.
