Montreal’s Happy Hour Takeout Services
FOR YOUR NEXT ZOOM PARTY
It’s Friday night, 7pm and you are finally wearing something that doesn’t look like sweatpants. Actually, maybe you do. Because during quarantine time, the rules of style are fully yours to create and follow.
Your favourite music is on, and you can’t wait to see the face of your friends popping on the screen in front of you. While waiting for your virtual apéro to start, you open a bottle of nature wine you ordered the night before from your favourite local restaurant. ‘Impossible,’ you may think? Not if you take a look at the list of places now offering wine and cocktails that we carefully wrapped up for you.
