Smart Saver Vancouver

The past couple of days, it has been over 25 degrees Celsius in Vancouver. AKA: Summer is coming! Therefore, I thought it would be the perfect time to tell you about some great, affordable summer activities you can do during this time of year.

Kayaking Bowen Island May 2018Do you enjoy being on the water? Summer is the perfect season to go kayaking in False Creek! Groupon currently offers a 40% discount on two-hour single kayaks and a 44% discount on tandem kayaks. This means you can enjoy the beautiful view from the water, the calming sound of the waves and of course, improve your kayak skills, for only $24! The promotional value expires August 31st.

Would you like to do something less standard? Go paddle boarding! You can do this at Kitsilano Beach as well as Granville Island. From Granville Island, you can paddle down to False Creek or to English Bay and enjoy the beautiful views you will pass by on your way. If you’re lucky, you might even see some seals! Groupon offers a discount for this activity as well: two hours of paddle boarding on a weekday will cost you $17 instead of $33 and two hours of paddle boarding on any day will cost you $21. Tip: bring a friend and rent a paddle board for two people. Why? Well, Groupon offers a 51% discount, meaning you and your friend only have to pay $33 in total! This promotional value expires September 5th.

6054509692_718b4d44d3_mNot into water activities? No need to worry! If you enjoy movies and being surrounded by nature, I have the perfect activity for you: watch an outdoor movie at Stanley Park! Every Tuesday, between July 3rd and August 21st, you can wrap yourself in a warm blanket, eat popcorn and watch your favourite throwback movies, all while breathing in fresh air. The best part: it’s completely free! You can find the line-up here.

If you would just like to do something simple; organize a barbecue with your friends and divide the preparation among the people who join. A fun day guaranteed! I hope the weather stays nice enough for you to do all these activities. If it does: don’t forget to wear sunscreen and take water with you!

See you all tonight at the Lamplighter for PuB NiGHT!

Smart Saver Vancouver

The weather is getting better and better, which means it’s the perfect time to go out for lunch with friends. Of course, having lunch at a café can be quite expensive and hurt your bank account. Therefore, I will give you some tips on affordable lunch places in Vancouver to visit on a sunny day.

Nero Waffle Bar: its name is pretty self-explanatory; it is a bar that serves waffles. Sounds good already? It gets better! The bar makes all its waffles from scratch and mostly uses local and natural ingredients. It offers a wide variety of sweet and savoury waffles including waffles with ice cream. The best thing: you can get them for less than $10! The bar has two locations; Robson Street and Seymour Street. When it’s warm outside, I would suggest going to the one on Seymour Street, since it serves cold beers (I told you it would get better) and has a patio. However, eating inside is enjoyable too since there is an open kitchen that allows visitors to see the waffles being made. Opening hours are 11am to 11pm Monday until Thursday, 11am to midnight on Fridays, 9am to midnight on Saturdays and 9am to 11pm on Sundays. 14792913941_a93004f28b_n

Hungry Guys Kitchen: At this lunch and dinner place, you can enjoy tasty burritos, bowls and salads for a good price. What is great about this place is that you can put them together yourself! You can choose the base, beans, protein and toppings of your burrito or bowl for $8.89 and the base, protein, veggies and dressing of your salad from $6.50 on. Good to know: the chefs strive to use local and sustainable products free of artificial colors and preservatives. Hungry Guys Kitchen is located on Granville Street and it is open everyday from 11am until 8:30pm.

Meat and Bread: This sandwich place does not have a large menu, however, there is a diversity of food. Visitors can choose between a chicken, porchetta, grilled cheese and meatball sandwich (as weird as that may sound). Besides that, there is a ‘Wednesday Special’ that includes a turkey fajita and avocado. Prices are between $7 and $10. Not hungry enough for a sandwich, but still up for something small? Why not order a $4 dessert? Let’s be real, the dessert is the most exciting part of a meal anyway. Sounds good? You can find this place on Cambie Street. Opening hours are 11am to 5pm from Monday to Wednesday, 11am to 7pm from Thursday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday.

I hope I inspired you to visit some of these places. See you tonight at Dublin Calling for PuB NiGHT!
