BACK TO SOCIETY - CH Newsletter #26 May 27, 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!

Hello CH Members,

We’ve missed you 🥺 It’s been a long two weeks since we’ve last spoken to you—it feels good to be back 🙈

P.S. In case you were wondering where we were last week, we announced that we’ll be sending the newsletter every two weeks for the summer!

THE INSIDER’S REPORT: MONTREAL NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW

A lot has been happening in Montreal over the last couple of weeks: celebrity sightings, festivals, new restaurants, etc. 

  • During the wild weekend at Festival Metro Metro, famous Toronto rapper Drake (YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT) came on stage as a surprise guest during Lil Baby’s performance 🤯 What an appearance! AND if you think it couldn’t get any better, he was spotted at Ziggy’s on Crescent on Sunday, just a 5-min walk from Chelsea House 👀

  • If you have nothing going on this weekend😴, downtown Montreal now has a giant 360-degree aquarium—definitely worth checking out🤓! It's here until May 29th as an installation for Festival TransAmériques at Place des Arts.

    Plot twist: the aquarium is actually part of a free performance where performers will act out scenes from everyday life, as the tank fills with water.

    Montreal is never a dull moment lol 😆

  • Today will be the opening of Canada’s BIGGEST supper club! In case the supper club isn't common for you, it's basically a restaurant that turns into a club. Yoko Luna is a 20,000-square foot Japanese-themed restaurant and lounge (there's 8 different themed rooms 🤯!!!) which is just a 10 min walk from Chelsea House.

CHELSEA HOUSE COMMUNITY VIBES UPDATE

This just in: PJ (CH’s proud father) went on a little golf trip with some fellow Chelsea House golfers 😌⛳️


Here’s PJ’s rundown from Sunday: ”I shot a quick 9 holes with Luciano 🇲🇽 and Jad🇦🇪 The fellas had been going to an indoor golf simulator over the winter with Liam 🇫🇷 unfortunately absent from our foursome. Worldly discussions occurred, a few beverages were consumed, and a lot of stick swinging on a sunny early evening.”

HOUSE UPDATES 

We know that there’s been some issues with your digital keys this week due to the power outage. We’re working on getting this resolved ASAP! We have someone from Salto coming in on Monday to make sure that we’re A-OK.

If ever you find yourself locked out, try using your key from the Chelsea House app rather than JustIn - this has worked for a few people. Also, we HIGHLY encourage you to help each other out. If your key isn’t working between now until Monday, coordinate with fellow roommates or members to let you in.

We HIGHLY recommend to download the Chelsea House app if you haven’t done so already

IMPORTANT REMINDER ⚠️ Send a void cheque to info@chelsea.house so we can return your security deposit!

 

Stay classy,

CH Community Team
