INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver!

Hey y’all

After learning about how to travel around North America on a small budget , today’s new episode of our Smart Saver is all about my passion concerning good movies and food!

Don’t we all know that sometimes even the simple things in life – like a good movie with friends and chatting away while snacking in a nice bar – can be frustratingly expensive? However, I do not want to choose the most popular alternative: Sitting in front of my computer, watching some show I’ve had on my hard drive for ages! So this week, I had a little look around and found some places that still offer us the possibility to have fun night out with friends.

The RIO Theatre plays recent movies as well as some lovely old classics and also hosts several live events. On Fridays, they offer Midnight Cult Classics, which are spiced up by live hosts and a pre show entertainment program. If you dress up in costume for these, you will get 1$ off the 8$ ticket! Apart from that, they also have CHEAP DATE Mondays and Tuesdays on which tickets are only 6$ !!! I think those are quite some amazing deals.

And of course, the food shouldn’t be neglected here, nobody wants to sit through a movie with an empty stomach. So you might consider going to the Metropole Community Pub in 320 Abbott St. They offer a 6.50 $ burger + beer deal every day and are generally supposed to have the cheapest food and drinks in town. So if you are looking for a casual place to hang out and get something to eat before hitting the RIO, this could be your place.

See y’all soon,
