Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s November. That means a lot of rainy days are waiting for us. Of course you don’t want to sit inside the whole day. Because most of the indoor activities cost money, I wrote a blog how you can save some money and still have a lot of fun.

The Art Gallery

Go on Tuesday nights from 5 pm to 9 pm to The Art Gallery. This night is a “by donation night” which means give some change you have in your pocket. Every week there is a new artist showing his work. If you are lucky, you will see some cool arts inside.

Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory

If it’s a clear evening in the weekend, you can go to The Observatory. Watch the stars with a big telescope. Or look up when the next meteor shower is coming, so you will have front seat spots. The Observatory is open on Friday and Saturday from 8:30pm and also here you pay by donation.

Hiking

You can do a lot of beautiful hikes in and around Vancouver. Even if the sun is not shining, these hikes reward you with some nice views. Do for example the BCMC trial, Grouse grind, Capilano Canyon, Lighthouse Park, Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon (with the free suspension bridge) or the Quarry rock.

Nightclubs

Nightclubs during the weekend are packed. They ask for a cover to get in. During the week the club is emptier. To attract more people during weekdays, these evenings are cover free. That means free entrance and if you are lucky also a free shot.

Watch a movie

If you want to see a movie, but after looking in your wallet deciding it’s too expansive, go on Tuesday! At Cineplex the movies on Tuesday are $7 dollars. Is Cineplex too boring for you? Spend $3 dollars or more and go watch your movie in the Morgue. A morgue is a building where dead bodies are kept before being cremated or buried. What’s scarier than watch a horror movie here? Every second Tuesday of the month you can watch a movie. Bring your own blankets and pillows for the best cozy experience. Or spend $8 dollars for watching a movie in the RIO theatre. They play a movie nearly every night, check it here.

Granville Island

Go take the bus and get off at Granville Island. You can spend the whole day here walking around. Even when it’s raining, you can find a big indoor public market where you can taste some local products or go shopping in one of the many little shops.

Movie sets

As you maybe already know, Vancouver is the Hollywood from North America. A lot of movies are filmed here. Try to spot your favourite celeb by going to one of the sets. Decide which set you want to visit and if you are lucky, you can see your favourite celeb in action.

Whatever you decide to do, have a lot of fun! The last free thing you can do is coming to the PuB NiGHT tomorrow! Hope to see you there!

Pub Night Review

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that ended for most of you at the Cambie for our weekly pub night. However before we went down to the Cambie some of us went to the dance practice.

At 5.30pm we gather in front of the Art Gallery for the dance practice with Lee. We were around 25 people, all excited to get our dance moves on. After we had our “dance-meeting”, Lee put on the music and the show was on. We did two rehearsals before we want a dance-off were you could win two backstreet boys tickets. Our own Crazy Alex was the lucky winner of the tickets! Congrats to you. For those who weren’t at the rehearsal, I hope you practiced at home before the big day! Also a video will be soon released of the rehearsal.

After the rehearsal we went down to the Cambie for our weekly pub night. We were lucky enough the get a table outside and to enjoy the warm weather. After the dance practice we were of course hungry so we ordered some nice burgers with fries (btw, there are pretty cheap $9). Since the sun was setting down, it became a bit fresher outside so we went inside for some more drinks.

We hope you all will join us for the Flashmob! It will be a fun experience and something to tell your friends & family about back home. Here is a video on how to learn the music and if you click here there is even more information!

 

Backstreet’s back, alright!

What to do on the weekend?

After a weekend away from Vancouver it is time to join the Vancouverites in the city again. Let’s have a look at what Vancouver has to offer this weekend.

Friday

Critical Mass
If you love cycling and hate this city for making it so hard, than join this “protest” group and piss off every car driver while biking with a large group around the city. If you want to be part of critical mass, take your bike at 6pm on Friday and go to the Art gallery to meet your fellow bikers. Form there one you will drive to and unannounced destination, pissing of car drivers. Btw; this is everyone last friday of the month! Click here to get more information.

Fuse
You thought the Art Gallery is boring, not this Friday! The Art Gallery is hosting one of the many Fuse nights, called A Terrible Beauty with art, music and film entertainment. Even alcoholic drinks can be bought during the evening. The Art Gallery opens at 8pm and stays open till 1am. Tickets cost $20, but is free for gallery members. Click here form more information.

Saturday

Bike the blossom
If you cannot get enough of biking through Vancouver, why not joining the Bike the blossom tour. It is a free guided bike ride starting at the South side of John Hendry Park, 3300 Victoria Drive at 11am. Visit their website to see the bike route and to get more information.

Party for the Planet
Surry celebrates Earth Day with a free festival including different performances, small activities and much more. Also concert performances are included such as Said the Whale and Dear Rouge. It features four stages, so there will be something for everyone. It starts at 10.30am and goes on till 9pm. For more information click here.

Sunday

The Eastside Flea
What would be a weekend in Vancouver without any flea market, not Vancouver I guess. So here is another flea market for the ‘flea-ers’. The flea market can be found on 2755 Prince Edward St. at The Biltmore Cabaret it opens at 11am and closes at 5pm, enough time to walk through the market. At the flea you can find vintage collectors selling, accessories, rock n’ roll memorabilia, shredded tees and tanks, vinyl records and way more vintage stuff.

We wish you a fun weekend and hope to see you tomorrow for the After-Rockies

Smart Saver Vancouver

This week we have a ‘artsy’ Smart Saver for you. It is the last week of February and the last week you can visit the art gallery for only $10 and receive a exclusive Emily Carr print, while supplies last.

Emily Carr was a Canadian artist and author and the Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a ‘ Canadian Icon‘. She is mostly known for her forest scenes paintings, however the aboriginal themed paintings, which she made in her earlier years, are also popular among the artistic folks.

If you like more the wood carving arts, you should visit The Dance Screen (The Scream Too) exhibition by James Hart during your visit at the gallery. His exhibition is inspired by the traditional Haida stories, which were depended on salmon for their survival.

The gallery opens daily from 10am to 5pm and on Tuesdays until 9pm. If you do not want to pay $10 for your visit, than visit the gallery Tuesdays between 5pm and 9pm for free or make a donation.
