Becoming Montrealers - CH Newsletter #43 November 12, 2022

As part of joining our private residential community, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events, developments in the student residence and any other relevant news. We've decided to post these updates on our website in order to let our visitors looking for student housing get an inside view of the Chelsea House student life!

Dear CH family,
Welcome back to the CH Show!!! ๐Ÿ“บ
So you've been in Montreal ๐Ÿ for a couple of months now. Slowly getting yourself used to the life here and exploring the different things to do in the city. You're probably thinking, what else does this huge, bustling, and vibrant city have to offer? ๐Ÿค”
This week we're featuring a not-so-popular staple in Montreal ๐Ÿคญ, the latest news from Canada's favorite coffee stop โ˜•๏ธ , and a glimpse into the home of the largest international comedy festival in the world ๐ŸŽญ . We also have some pretty exciting updates from your favorite premium student residence and a very important reminder for our members (both of which you shouldn't skip) ๐Ÿ‘€
Alright, let's hit it! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
  • Did you know that aside from poutine, there's another infamous French-Canadian dish that was invented in Quebec? It's called Pizzaghetti ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ. We know our Italian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น members may be shaking their heads in disbelief ๐Ÿคฃ, however, for the brave ones who would like to try this odd combo, check out these restaurants: Reubens, Salonica, Marconi, and Zappy Pizza ๐Ÿ‘€

  • We've got good news for those of you who hate carrying cash or queueing to get your daily coffee and donut fix. You can now pay for your Tim Hortons order using your phones! This new feature is called Scan & Pay. What makes it even better is that you'll get rewards points each time you use it for your purchases.



  • The list of "things to do in Montreal?" won't be complete without something from the comedy scene. Our city is of course home to some of the best stand-up comedy shows in the world ๐ŸŒŽ. Sit back, relax, and laugh your hearts out this Sunday evening at Cafรฉ Les Oubliettes' Humor Night. Get your tickets here.

  • ๐Ÿšจ REMINDER ๐Ÿšจ 
In light of the recent Chelsea App ๐Ÿ“ฒ glitch, we would like to once again remind everyone to bring your physical fob keys with you AT ALL TIMES ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
As reported by our tech team, this unforeseen incident was due to an update initiated by Windows, not by our team. Hence, as much as it is convenient to rely on your phones alone, we do not want you to get locked out of the building and your apartments should a similar issue happen in the future.

We thank you for your usual understanding and cooperation, Chelsea Fam ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

The Chelsea Art Project is something that our founder, PJ, has been working on since the first quarter of 2022. The Montreal based โ€œLe LivArtโ€ Art Center ๐Ÿ–ผ has accepted to assist us in decking out our halls with art ! The inspiration is to have a mix of antique frames, modern black frames & frameless art works put up in our hallways & staircase.
Visually we will want to continue with the design theme of combining (clash) antique with modern, so in this case we will have photography, serigraphy, painted artwork. We will also have some framed pieces which will be interactive (think white board, pin board).
Watch out for more amazing pieces to be added to our beautiful home! ๐Ÿก
If you want to contribute to the effort ! Let us know ๐Ÿ™
Alright, that's it for now!
Stay Classy,
The Chelsea House Community Team
