What to do on the weekend?

It might not be the best weather today, but the weekend is starting today, so at least some good news, right?! And it gets even better, because it’s going to be a long weekend. Here are some ideas, as to what you could do this weekend.

Monday is Victoria Day, which celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria. Who is Queen Victoria you might ask? She was the Queen of England and head of the British Empire when Canada became an independent country.

On Saturday, we are going to go bike riding in Stanley Park. We will meet at 12 pm at Yes Cycle at 687 Denman St. The first hour for the rental of the bikes will be $8 and the second one $7. So join us and explore Stanley Park.

For all of you who enjoy the Yale, I have an interesting tip for you. This weekend, from the 17 to 20 May is the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair in Surrey. It is one of North’s Americas longest running Rodeos, with additional entertainment and food. Tickets are $10 and up.

market

On Saturday and Sunday is the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The event features an exhibition and a vendor fair with hundreds of creators from around the world. There will also be readings, panels and workshops. The festival will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping and want to find some unique things, it might be worth checking out the Eastside Flea Market on Saturday or Sunday. This is not your average flea market. You will be able to find vintage clothing, quality handcrafted items, jewellery, natural locally-made body care, art, vinyl records, food and many more interesting items. There will be over 50 vendors, so there will be plenty to see. Admission is $3.

Have a wonderful weekend!

How was your weekend?

Another Monday, another week ahead of us. But before we dive into the new week, let’s take a look at what happened on the weekend.

IMG_soccer group

On Friday we went to see the Whitecaps game against the Portland Timbers. We met at the Library Square Public House at around 5:30. That’s also the meeting spot of the Southsiders, the loyal fans of the Whitecaps. So we’ve already experienced some cheering there. At the Pub we had a few beers until 6:45, when we headed towards the stadium. We had pretty nice seats, as our view was great, and we sat next to the Southsiders, so we had good energy around us during the whole game. Before the game, both the American and the Canadian national anthems were played. When the game started the stadium wasn’t too full, but it filled up over time. The Whitecaps were able score a goal in the 9th minute. Even though the Timbers also had some good opportunities to score goals, they weren’t able to score one, leading to the Whitecaps win.

When leaving the stadium, there was a marching band outside performing. Part of our group went home afterwards, while some still went for some drinks. Thanks to everyone who joined and hopefully you enjoyed the game as much as I did.

The rest of the weekend was a rather chill one for me. I hung out with some friends and enjoyed the weather by the water. I hope you guys had a great weekend as well.

See you at the Yale Saloon on Wednesday for PuB NiGHT!

Have a good day!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s a sunny day in beautiful Vancouver, and you know what makes this day even better? The fact that it’s Friday and the beginning of the weekend! In case you need some ideas as to what to do, here are some suggestions.

19060909285_60930d1034_oThe Richmond night market is starting today, where you can find amazing foods from all around the world. You can choose from 120 vendors with over 600 food items, making it North America’s largest night market. Each year the market has over one million visitors. This year’s theme is “summer chill party”, making it the perfect place to end your day. The market will take place over the whole summer and is open from Fridays to Sundays from 7 pm to 12 am. Admission is $4.75 pp.

ice creamSince it is so sunny, you probably want to cool off somehow. Maybe by enjoying some ice cream? In this case, you should check out La Casa Gelato. They have 238 flavours in store. Let me repeat that….238 flavours. So if you are bored of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, you have to go there. You can find them at 1033 Venables St.

Other than that, I would just recommend spending as much time as possible outside, either at a beach, on a hike or simply by strolling through the city, and enjoying the wonderful weather.

PS: Don’t forget, Mother’s day is on Sunday. Remember to call your mom and tell her how amazing she is!

Enjoy your weekend!

How was your weekend?

Another sunny weekend is behind us, where we had the possibility to explore beautiful Vancouver.

Saturday was a pretty chill day for me. I went downtown and did a bit of window shopping in the afternoon, which is always fun.

Sunday was another marathon in downtown Vancouver. I watched it for a while, and it was quite amusing seeing some of the participants dressed up in weird costumes. The atmosphere was great. Afterwards, I walked along the water by Coal Harbour and enjoyed the view as well as the weather.

IMG_trampoline park

By the afternoon, I got ready to go to the trampoline park in New Westminster. We met around 5:30, so we could start jumping by 6. In the beginning all of us were full of energy, enthusiastic and jumping around like little kids. Some of us were even able to pull off some flips. The trampoline park also had a foam pit, which was….interesting, as most of us struggled to get out of it. We also had a few intense matches of dodge ball. After one and a half hours we were exhausted but still hung around for a bit. Overall, it was a fun experience. Thanks to everyone who showed up.

Hope to see you on Wednesday at PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, meaning it’s the weekend. If you don’t have any plans yet, here are some ideas. I hope you’re hungry, because this weekend is a foodie’s dream.

North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market begins today, with some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. Just to give you an idea of the size, the free market has over 100 vendors, and you will also be able find 19 beer garden, as well as other entertainment. The market is open from 5pm to 10pm. In case you already have plans for tonight, don’t worry the market is open every Friday until 27 September. More infos at: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/north-vancouver-shipyards-night-market-dates-2019

And now for all the Germans and German fans: The “Prost Haus”, a Bavarian themed beer hall, just opened on the rooftop of 900 Granville street. There, you will be able to find authentic German food like Pretzels, Bratwurst and, of course, Beer. So if you’re feeling a bit homesick, go check it out.

In case you’re in the mood for a bit more Mediterranean food, specifically Greek, I got you covered. This weekend is the 41st Vancouver Greek food festival. Not only will you find lots of food there, but also music, entertainment and history. So if you want to experience Greek culture, this is your chance. The festival is at 4500 Arbutus St from Friday to Sunday.

After all that food you might want to consider some exercise. A group of us is going to the trampoline park in New Westminster on Sunday evening at 5:30. You are still welcome to join. Just sent me message on facebook, so I know who is coming. https://www.facebook.com/events/2258540541073418/

How was your weekend?

Our Sunny weekend is behind us. Vancouver really treated us well during the past week and I really hope that this great weather continues. On Sunday the INTERNeX gang was enjoying the sun by hiking at Lighthouse Park.

dav

Lighthouse Park is located in West Vancouver about 40min bus drive away from downtown. On Sunday we met at 1pm in front of Burrard station and took the bus 250 to Horseshoe Bay. Around 2pm we arrived at the park and started the hike, which was a pretty easy one. Lighthouse Park has many different trails so there is something for everyone.

We chose to do the Beacon Lane one, which takes you straight to the Lighthouse lookouts. After the lookouts we found our way to a nice spot on the rocks next to the water where we had our snack break. The sun was out and we decided to chill a bit more and just enjoy the beautiful view. After our tanning session we continued our hike. We took a different trail back. I don’t remember the name of it but it went through the forest and took us back to the beginning.img_20190428_153606.jpg

The day was great and relaxing. Thanks for everyone who showed up! See you on Wednesday at Malone’s for our PuB NiGHT.
