Old Montreal restaurants join 28 days sober challenge
This February, The Fondation Jean Lapointe once again invites all of Quebec to join them in the fight against youth drug and alcohol addiction with The 28 Days Sober Challenge. For the first time ever, three restaurants in Old-Montreal are proudly joining force with the Foundation by offering their “La Carte Sans Compromis” a menu of mouth-watering mocktails, non-alcohol beers and wines, with new products especially chosen for the occasion! Even better, for every mocktail, beer, or wine sold at Modavie, Brasserie 701, and Bevo Bar + Pizzeria– Experience Old Montreal will be giving $1 to the foundation and 2$ for each bottle of wine. Now you can enjoy a night out in Old Montreal while supporting a good cause! Who said you need alcohol to have fun?
At each restaurant, guests will find a curated mocktail menu created specifically for this initiative. Enjoy a delicious dinner at Brasserie 701 while sipping on their “Falernum 94”; made with a new non-alcoholic spirit, full of spices flavour perfectly balanced with bitters; or eat-out with friends at Bevo Bar + Pizzeria as you savour their mouth-watering pizza with the newly launched Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc Sans Alcool in-hand. In the mood for some live music and French food – why not head down to Modavie and enjoy a delectable dinner paired with some non-alcohol Torres Muscat Natureo? If you’re partaking in the 28 Days Sober Challenge, Experience Old Montreal welcomes you! Finally, a dining experience that makes supporting a good cause as easy as ever.
Furthermore, as part of the initiative, on Friday, February 8th, from 4pm to 7pm, Kronenbourg 1644 Blanc Sans Alcool has teamed up with Bevo Bar + Pizzeria and will be giving away their brand non-alcoholic beer to all!
The 28 Days Sober Challenge is a unique movement that began in 2013 when two young, community-minded, professionals decided to stop drinking for the month of February in support of those suffering from substance addiction. On the basis of that experience, the Fondation Jean Lapointe decided to promote the 28-day challenge as a means of raising money and awareness for prevention workshops about the risks of alcohol, cannabis and other drug addictions to high school students across the province. For a mere $28 donation and 28 days sober, you can support initiatives in local high schools that combat early substance abuse and addiction
No alcohol, no problem! This February support the fight against youth addiction by participating in the 28 Days Sober Challenge, and remember, you can still enjoy a night out in Old Montreal!
