Movember: moustaches for a great cause

Since 2003, Movember has raised over $670 million to help more than 1000 programs to raise awareness of men’s health issues, particularly prostate and testicular cancer. Throughout the month, participants grow out their facial hair to raise funds and help spark discussion on these important topics. In the spirit of helping spread this positive message, take part in these Montreal bars’ and restaurants’ Movember-themed events.

Barraca Rhumerie & Tapas

1134, av du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1X8

The staff members at the rum distillery of Mont-Royal Avenue hold the Movember cause close to their hearts, which is why they’re hosting a MoParty on November 29. On the menu: a close shave and photo shoots, all organized to raise donations. Throughout the month, the Barraca will donate one dollar from the sale of designated products.

Brit & Chips

433, rue McGill, Montréal, QC H2Y 2H1

Two Brit & Chips restaurants that excel in the art of fish ’n’ chips are offering a very special breading during the whole month of November. Part of the revenue generated by the sale of this menu item will go to the good cause of Movember. Let's head to Côte-des-Neiges or on McGill Street to have a taste!

Léché Desserts Inc

McKibbin's Irish

6361 Autoroute Transcanadienne, Pointe-Claire, QC H9R 5A5

On Thursday, November 26, the McKibbins pub located in Pointe-Claire invites you to enjoy a meal of turkey and beer (or wine) and American football! Tickets to attend the event are listed at $40. The profits will be donated to organizations affected by Movember. For those who want to know, the Philadelphia Eagles will face the Detroit Lions (at 1:00pm) and the Carolina Panthers will face the Dallas Cowboys (at 4:30pm).

And it's a sixth time in a row for the MTLàTABLE festival, playing matchmaker between foodies and Montreal’s fine food establishments. From November 2 to 16, choose from $21, $31 or $41 multi-course meals to start your culinary journey right here in Montreal. Here’s what’s on the menu at some of the restaurants taking part.
