What to do on the weekend

Only a few more hours till the weekend! The weather on Saturday isn’t going to be that good, but Sunday should be a little better.

On Sunday the INTERNeX gang will be going to Granville Island. There is a public market with lots of food, so make sure you come with an empty stomach! There are also a lot of cute little shops.

However, if that’s not enough food for you, you can always go to the Surrey Greek Food Festival. This is a community festival whit a lot of Greek food. You can go on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there is no admission fee.

Another option is going to Commercial Drive on Sunday for Italian Day on the Drive, this street festival celebrates Italy. And while you’re on Commercial Drive you should do a little pub crawl through all the micro breweries that you can find there. At the micro breweries you can get a couple of tasters for a few dollars.

If you would rather do something relaxing but cheap, you can go to the family favourites movies at Cineplex for $2.99. At 11 AM on Saturday they will show A Dogs Purpose at select theatres.

Like every weekend there are a lot of farmers markets. On Friday night there is the Richmond Night Market and the Illumination Summer Night Market. On Saturday you can go to markets in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Fort Langley, Maple Ridge, Trout Lake and Squamish. And on Sunday you can go to Ambleside, Coquitlam, Kitsilano, Ladner, White Rock and Whistler.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

Thank god it’s Friday! Which means it is almost weekend and weekend is always good, especially with the following things coming up:

Tonight INTERNeX will go to the Richmond Night Market close to Bridgeport Srichmondnightmarket1tation. This is the biggest night market in North America and it has over 500 food choices from all around the world, so you can definitely fill your tummies here! There are also live performances, over two hundred retail stalls and several games, so if you have nothing planned yet for tonight, you are welcome to join us.

Unfortunately we don’t have as great weather as last weekend, so I came up with some ideas for you to do this weekend where you don’t really need to stroll in the rain for or is still okay to do with an umbrella.

The Champions League Final is tomorrow and the Manchester Pub is broadcasting it! The duel starts at 11.45 AM Vancouver time, so if you are a real soccer fan and want to see the match between Juventus and Real Madrid go to the Manchester Pub on 1941 West Broadway. Besides this match, the Vancouver Whitecaps are also playing, so if you want to enjoy a more local match, definitely check this one out!

Besides the Richmond Night Market there are some other markets this weekend as well. The Eastside Flea is happening again this weekend, which is worth visiting. On Sunday there is the StreetFood Vancouver Festival at 88 Pacific Blvd. Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival and Memory Laine Events host the event. It has 22 Vancouver Food Trucks, an artisan market, live music and more entertainment for the entire family. And the good thing about this market is that there is no entrance fee.

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you and I hope to see you tonight in Richmond!

Smart Saver Vancouver

If you love books as much as I do, then you also know that books can be very expensive. It might be worth checking out one of these stores to find a few cheap books.

Macleod’s bookstore is a bookstore at West Pender street which sells a big variety of books. Some of them are really expensive while other books are only $1. The bookstore has lots of books so if you are on a search for a really cheap book, then you should schedule some hours to hunt for the right book.

18836307_10209107877715062_1345240024_oIf you would rather spend less time in finding a cheap book then go to Spartacus books or Paper Hound bookshop. Paper Hound has a shell outside their store with only cheap books and Spartacus books has a $2 shelf. While you are at Spartacus books you might as well make use of the free WiFi and the board games.

When your books do not fit in your suitcase anymore or when it is time to get rid of some old books and freshen your bookshelf with new books, then you can go to Tanglewood books. At this bookstore you can trade or sell your books between 10 AM and 4 PM. So in this way your books can get a nice new home while you can buy new books without worrying about the weight and space in your suitcase.

I hope this will help you save some money!!!

What to do on the weekend

It’s almost weekend! Here are some ideas on how to make your weekend great!

9712752916_eeb63073e6_o.jpgThis weekend it will be amazing weather again, so we decided to go to Jericho beach on Saturday.  Jericho beach has several picnic tables where we could eat our food, so you can take food with you for a nice picnic on the beach or just chill and enjoy the nice weather.

If you are into beer you could go to the opening night of the Vancouver Craft Beer Week at the Roundhouse on Friday night. There will be samples of beer (naturally), food trucks and live entertainment. A ticket for the event is $49 and includes 15 drink tickets.

You could also go to The Richmond Night Market. They opened on May 12th and will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from 7 pm till October 9th. They sell a lot of food there, so make sure you go with an empty stomach! The admission is $3.75.

18721359_10209072326626307_1192880159_oWe will be having great weather for the whole weekend, so if you are not able to join us on Saturday then you can also go to one of Vancouver’s many beaches on Sunday. English Bay Beach, Second Beach, Sunset Beach and Kitsilano Beach tend to be a bit busy during days like these, so you might want to consider going to Third Beach or Jericho Beach if you like it a bit more quiet.

You could also use the good weather to go on a hike, but just be careful if the hike is fully in the sun and make sure you stay hydrated!

What to do on the weekend?

It is Friday again and you know what that means, right? Time to get out of the house and celebrate the weekend. This weekend will be a long weekend, so you will have lots of time to explore British Columbia and Vancouver.

18195054_10155240525552103_6049775120854058037_nWe were already really lucky with the weather and it is getting better and better, which is why it is time to do outdoor activities. In this way we can enjoy the sun to the fullest. Therefore is INTERNeX planning a bike ride through Stanley Park on Sunday. You may have already seen the totem poles, but there are so many other things to explore in this amazing park.

There are also several events taking place during this weekend, such as the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair and the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is a festival which is 4 days in total. This event is especially for the cowboys and cowgirls in our group. So let your inner cowboy free during this great festival. The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is a festival with several comic-related events. These include readings, presentations, discussions and a big exhibition area. If you like comics, then this is definitely the place to go!

Besides that you can also go to Tagore Spring Festival in Surrey on Saturday. There are various kinds of performances, including dance, music and poetry. Next to that you can also learn a bit more about the Canadian culture while you watch presentations about all the different traditions and heritages. The festival is paid by donation, so definitely worth checking out!

17352379_10208531571187759_1886154942491608944_nIf you would rather watch sports during this weekend, you could go to the BC Place Stadium on Saturday and watch the Vancouver Whitecaps play against Sporting Kansas City. Of course, you could also go to one of the great sports bars in Vancouver. When you would rather spend your time outside because of the expected good weather, then you could go to one of Vancouver’s great beaches such as English Bay, Jericho Beach and Kitsilano Beach.

I hope you will have a great weekend! See you in Stanley Park or at next week’s PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

It is almost time for the weekend, so it is time to figure out what to do on the weekend. We have a few suggestions for you that you might want to check out before you make any plans!

18193778_10155234529877103_6254901922779113200_nOn Sunday we are planning on going to Bowen Island with the INTERNeX family. Bowen Island is a small island between Vancouver Island and Vancouver. Therefore, we are going by ferry to this awesome destination, which is going to be already an adventure itself. Once there you get the choice to do a hike, explore the island by scooter, do kayaking or to do stand-up paddling. You are still able to join if you would like to explore this island with us. If you want to know more about the event then check out our Facebook page and the blogpost.

If you still don’t have something planned for Saturday, we might be able to help you out with that. This weekend is the second weekend that Playland is open, so it is time to go onto all the rides and to let the adrenaline kick in. For only $36 you can get a day ticket and ride almost all rides. If you buy it online you will even save $3.

8158899125_27926f40d4_oWhen you are more into culture, Fort Langley might be the perfect place for you! Fort Langley is a small and old village only a few hours from Vancouver. While walking around in this village, you will discover all the wonders from the 19th century. If Fort Langley is a bit too far away, then you can choose to go to Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Steveston village. During your visit in Gulf of Georgia Cannery, you will learn about the history of the West Coast fishing industry. Both historic sites are free this year, so it is the time to explore and get to know British Columbia.

If you would rather experience culture by trying out different food, then you should definitely go to the Illumination Summer Night market. This market is held every weekend from May till September. There are over 200 different food and merchandise stands, so there is enough entertainment for the whole night. This year will also be the first year that it is together with a huge light show. The entrance fee is only $3, so it is definitely worth trying out.

See you at Bowen island or at next PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

Yay! Just a few hours left and it will be weekend again! Although it is rainy and cloudy today, it’ s supposed to be quite sunny this weekend so enough outdoors activities to do!

On Saturday morning we will go to Lighthouse Park to start the weekend of with some exercise. The views are amazing from that area so we hope to see you come along! For details please click here.

Because it is supposed to get sunny I would advise you to go outside! Go up to Grouse grousemountainMountain for example. I did this last weekend and the views were absolutely amazing. You are still able to go skiing by the Eagle Express. Besides that the grizzly bears Grinder and Coola who live in a habitat on the mountain, woke up from their hibernation period. They are in full action again and you are able to take a look at them. So it is definitely worth your money to go up the mountain!

From May 6 to May 13 it is Bird Week in Vancouver. This is a weeklong series of events to celebrate the birds of Vancouver. During this week there will be bird-related workshops, walks, talks, exhibitions and lectures across Vancouver. You don’t need to be a bird fanatic for this one, also if you just like the outdoors you are welcome to join. Best part is that most of the events are free, so check out their website to see if something suits you.

On Sunday the annual BMO Vancouver Marathon is happening. This is a really big event, which goes all across the city. Because of the marathon on Sunday there is a free Health & Sports Expo in the Vancouver Convention Centre till 6pm on Saturday. When you want to catch all the action at the finish line, you have to go to West Pender Street between Bute and Thurlow Street. There is also a Street Festival located on West Hastings between Bute and Burrard Street. Check out all the events and details on their website 🙂

Have a great and shiny weekend everyone!
