Hello Darlings,  Upon checking into my room and a quick soak, I was ready for a night on the town! With an itinerary filled with adventure, I was as excited as a little kid on a Christmas morning. The first event on the list was a meet and greet at Bartini in the lobby of W.  Luckily, my closet friend and a colleague Miya joined me on this trip. She was covering the experience for TheYouthSociety.com — a women’s lifestyle site I co-found in 2014— and you can read all about it here.  After a few martinis and making new friends, we set out to explore the town starting with an incredible dinner at Jatoba as recommended by our W Insider. If in Montreal, it’s a must try! Then the evening took us to Flyjin lounge in Old Montreal which proved to be lots of fun even on a random week day. It was a perfect girls night filled with great food, a few cocktails and many laughs!
