INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

Is there any way to vote for a four-day workweek and a three-day weekend? I could get used to this for sure! A third day would be just perfect to recover from the previous days’ exertions and get physically and mentally ready to work at full power the next day.  Hmm for now let’s face merciless reality though and make the most out of this Saturday and Sunday, ok? 🙂

Here are some cool suggestions for you guys:

Eastside Culture Crawl | Nov 16-18th 2012

Great for everyone who is culturally interested in any kind of way. “The Eastside Culture Crawl is a free annual 3-day November event that involves artists on Vancouver’s Eastside opening their studio to the public. The event is focused on the area bounded by Main St., 1st Ave., Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront and involves painters, jewelers, sculptors, furniture makers, musicians, weavers, potters, writers, printmakers, photographers, glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established.”

  • Where? Vancouver Eastside (surprisingly enough ;)) Check out the MAP
  • When? Nov 16-18th;   Fri 5pm-10pm, Sat and Sun 10am-6pm
  • How much? FREE

INTERNeX Hockey Day – Vancouver Giants vs. Saskatoon Blades | Nov 18th

If there was something more Canadian than maple syrup, it would have to be HOCKEY!! I am not the biggest fan of sports in general but a hockey game is a unique experience, that’s a fact. Join INTERNeX for the game on Sunday and save a couple of dollars on your ticket as we get the group discount. Make sure you click “attend” on the facebook event page by Saturday 1pm as we have to order the tickets in advance. The special ticket price for you is $18, make sure you bring cash please! Everyone who shows up spontaneously will unfortunately have to pay the full price.

  • Where? Pacific Coliseum, 100N Renfrew Street (main entrance)
  • When? 3:15pm (the game starts at 4pm)
  • How much? $18 if you sign up with INTERNeX


TORONTO:   Swap – Don’t Shop! Clothing Swap Party | Nov 17th

Get rid of your old stuff and trade it for cool clothes someone else doesn’t want anymore! I would totally go if I was in Toronto right now – especially as a traveler (and even more as a girl), it’s hard to live up to one’s fashion ideal for the simple reason that a suitcase doesn’t usually fit more than 23 kilos. This is a great opportunity to find new clothes without wasting your money and space in your travel luggage. All clothing, shoes, and other accessories (with the exception of socks & undies) that are clean and in good condition are welcome. Leftovers will be donated to local charities.

  • Where? Beaver Hall Gallery, 29 McCaul Street (Queen Street West and McCaul Street)
  • When? 12pm to 4pm
  • How much? $8 with at least 5 items to swap, $13 without

Have a great weekend!
