skating in Montreal
Happy New Year!

Looking for a hangover brunch? In Mile End, Nouveau Palais is open as of 11 a.m. (281 Bernard W., 514-273-1180) and in St-Henri, Green Spot is open as usual from 7 a.m. (3041 Notre-Dame W., 514-931-6473)

It’s warming up to -2 today, and there may even be a snow globe-ey sprinkling of flurries — perfect weather for outdoor ice skating. See a complete list of Montreal rinks (and their conditions, as of yesterday afternoon) here. To get an idea of which rinks are open (skate rental, bathrooms etc), look here.

There are plenty of decadent NYE afterparties, hangover events and even a few club weeklies happening tonight (have a look here), but for something a little different, try out the New Year’s Day dance party at Club Balattou. 4372 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $10

Alternately, you can get on the mic at Trash Ton Karaoké. Get an idea of their music selection here. Piranha Bar (680 Ste-Catherine W.), 9 p.m., free
