In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, on July 1st D.J. Deadmau5, Matt Mays and a huge group of other talented Canadian artists will be playing free shows in the Halifax Common.  At the nearby Emera Oval there will also be a variety of installation art pieces presented from creators all over the world. 

The Halifax Regional Municipality will be hosting a ton of free events throughout Halifax and Dartmouth to celebrate Canada 150 – to learn more click the link here, and get a group of friends together to start planning for July 1st! 

We all have that one friend that scoffs at the idea of spending a weekend outside the city, pitching a tent and cooking over a fire.  While most of us don’t mind roughing it on camping adventures, meet your bougie friends halfway and try spending some time outside the city at one of the luxurious wilderness accommodations we’ve listed below.

Fear not seafood lovers, Halifax is now offering our very own version of the sensational sushi sandwich taking the world by storm.  Our sources recently discovered that Bento Sushi in Superstores across the city actually serve some delicious, handmade sushirritos! 

Those who love both Japanese and Mexican food equally but find it difficult to pick between the two will be thrilled to discover that their problems have come to a conclusion with the introduction of three sushirrito flavours available at Superstores all over the HRM.

After enjoying some remarkable success throughout the early 2000's, Akon seemed to disappear from the music scene after the release of his most recent studio album Freedom in 2008.  It turns out the "Smack That" singer has been devoting much of his time to philanthropic projects over the past decade, culminating in the creation of his Konfidence Foundation which aims "to improve the quality of life for people in Africa and the United States."

Luckily for us, Akon has begun his return to the music scene and will be embarking on a summer tour to raise hype for the highly anticipated release of his fourth studio album Stadium.  On June 28th Akon will be stopping through Halifax and playing a show at Pacifico for only $55 per ticket.  Jam out to retro tunes like "Don't Matter" and "I Wanna Love You" with Akon this summer, and transport yourself back to the simpler times that were 2005.  For more ticket information click here.
