What's on in the Outaouais November 15-21
A sleepover in a castle, spirited evenings, and an adrenalin-fuelled group adventure—those are some of the activities to try in the Outaouais this week!
EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
SLEEPOVER AT THE MUSEUM
How would you like to sleep overnight in a museum gallery? The Canadian Museum of Nature invites you to a Nature Sleepover! Spend the evening exploring galleries by flashlight, going on a scavenger hunt in the Mammal Gallery, and watching a 3D movie. The sleepover also includes an evening snack and morning breakfast, overnight parking (until 9 a.m.) and next-day museum admission. Truly a night to remember!
Canadian Museum of Nature, 240 McLeod Street, Ottawa
$50 + tax per person.
Children must be at least 5 years old. Recommended for children up to 12 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult in the ratio of one adult for every five children.
LIVE SHOWS AT THE GAINSBOURG
This popular microbrewery and bistro in Old Hull also presents live shows. Coming up on November 16: Angel Forrest CD launch. Add the Gainsbourg to your entertainment calendar—you’re sure to have a great evening!
Gainsbourg, 9 Aubry Street, Gatineau
CD launch – November 16 at 8 p.m.
$35 + tax.
THE BREWERY TURNS 2
Come on out to a big party you won’t want to miss: the Brasserie du Bas-Canada’s second birthday! The Diabolus in Musica Jazz Trio, guitarist Rain Normand, and Les Sœurs de Lune will perform live before your very eyes. Oh, yes—there will be beer! Are you up for a sample of the new Toxicité beer, a sweet stout infused with notes of coconut and chocolate ice cream?
Brasserie du Bas-Canada, 455 De la Gappe Blvd., Gatineau
November 17 starting at 6 p.m.
Quebec gins can definitely hold their own against their international counterparts. Come discover and taste various blends selected by Emmanuelle Ricard (aka “Madame Gin”). You’ll be surprised at the range of flavours!
Bistro Épicure, 80 Promenade du Portage, Gatineau
November 21 at 6 p.m.
A little adrenalin (in a safe environment) is always a good thing. Tackle the enemy in a 6,000-square-foot battle zone. Your ammo? Foam balls. Painless but merciless!
Tag Zone, 89-B Montreal Road, Ottawa (corner of the Vanier Parkway, beside the Tim Hortons)
$36.99 for two hours.
Open by reservation.
