It’s day two of this weekend’s 3 Mile Meal, a community culinary experience: Outremont serves kosher at Bernard & Durocher, Parc Ex does South Indian and Bangladeshi at Marché Ogilvy (*Ogilvy & Hutchison) and Mile End has surprises in store at Fruiterie Mile End (Parc btwn St-Viateur & Bernard).

The fourth annual Funk n’ Jazz Festival comes highly recommended by our hip hop columnist Darcy MacDonald. With Sarak MK, Franco Proietti’s Morph-tet, breakers, brew and BBQ, it’s an easy choice for the Southwest set, and the rest of us would be well advised to travel to it. Terrasse St. Ambroise (5080 St-Ambroise, Lachine Canal side), 2–10 p.m., free

Culinary Konspirator hosts a vernissage with art by Katakankabin and Dead Bird, vegan treats and live music by chef/cellist Adrian Copeland. Propulsion (1303 Ste-Catherine E.), 5–11 p.m.

It’s time for the annual summer lantern parade through the Mile End! 7–10 p.m., free
