For me, hosting old friends is synonymous with going around Shawi’s restaurants and bars! Fun, giggles and a ton of stories to tell, here’s what the perfect weekend could look like.
Those who know me know that we’ll inevitably go to the Trou du diable (I’ll tell you why very soon), but surprisingly it doesn’t start there! I would start my Friday with a dinner at Zélé . I haven’t yet had the opportunity to discover this restaurant and their famous black garlic fries , but I have heard only good comments! I would continue the evening at Farfelu to enjoy a crazy Friday night of Karaoke with the famous Mario, in a relaxed atmosphere!
The day after is always treated with dignity with a big classic and very late breakfast at Palace in the Grand-Mère area. Why, will you tell me? Well, quite simply because it’s a classic, a tradition.
Then, heading to the Trou du Diable Broue pub for dinner– because my heart belongs to it… it’s been 16 years.
In a perfect world we’ll see a good show at the salon Wabasso before returning to end the last few opening hours at the Trou du diable Broue-pub!
Sunday late morning, after recovering from our night, we visit Julie at Tous les jours dimanche for a good coffee and fresh pastries.
Then I’ll show them the view from the observation tower of the new Marina de Grand-Mère.
If we still have energy, I’d end my weekend at the Chenapan where the cuisine is simple and tasty and the selection of micro beers is varied.
I might say that now, I could also feel like renting a chalet and lock myself in there with two friends to enjoy enjoy some music after having toured the following shops: Marché public de Shawinigan, La Mie de Grand-Mère, boucherie Nobert, Trou du diable Microbrewery / Broadway’s boutiques, or even one of our specialized beer stores such as La Chope à Bières in Shawi-Sud.
With nice food and microbrewery beers pairings.
Enjoying a show and a fun night.
With the classic big breakfast or the simple duo coffee and pastry.
At the legendary falls of the Trou du diable or the brand new Marina’s observation tower.
