Wed, 07/09/2014

Remember Cult MTL's amazing First Annual Anniversary BBQ last year at SAT? We had such a blast and a huge success. So we're absolutely stoked to team up once again with our favorite alt monthly print and online publication for Part 2! That's right, Cult MTL is turning 2 this year, and M for Montreal is bringing the celebratory noise.  On Saturday July 19 from 3 to 10 PM head to SAT's FoodLab (1201 St-Laurent Blvd) terrace for tons of great live music, food and more! 

The fun is free with RSVP by Thursday, July 17 at cultmtlevents@gmail.com. Make sure you send your confirmation, otherwise there are tickets at the door for $5.
