Tomorrow is a holiday for many Haligonians which means today is an unofficial Friday and you should do everything in your power to treat it as such. Get a group of friends together tonight at 5pm and head up to Halifax’s North End to grab drinks at one of the spots we’ve listed below.
The weather is…almost there, but the additional sunlight and an extra day off have got us looking forward to trying a couple of these bars out after work!
