Monday. Rain. What To Do In Halifax?

I feel a little sorry for anyone visiting Halifax over the past couple of weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for those of us who live here too but a rainy holiday is particularly galling. So what should one do when faced with a weather insult such as the one we’re experiencing?

There are lots of ways to amuse oneself indoors during the day in the city – museums, galleries and the like – but in the evening, you can’t do better than catching some live music at The Carleton. And tonight we’ve got something very, very special happening!


One of the best songwriters/performers you’ll ever get the chance to see (anywhere) is in Halifax playing at our club. Lloyd Cole (from Lloyd Cole & The Commotions fame) will be on stage at 8 PM. You can read the listing – and buy tickets – at the link you’ll see if you cast your eyes to the left of this column. Dinner and a show of this calibre is the kind of memory you’ll keep with you forever – even if it did rain on your vacation parade.

I guarantee you there is nothing more compelling happening in this town tonight.
