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!

PuB NiGHT Review: Library Square

Another Wednesday, another PuB NiGHT! This time, we thought we’d spice it up and go to a pub we had never been to before: Library Square. Home to Vancouver Arsenal, this is the place to be to watch their matches live every time they play. There was no match yesterday, but that didn’t make our night any less fun.

41305221034_0ab03ae781_nWe walked inside and saw a big tv screen in front of us, there was a baseball game going on! But seats filled up quite quickly, so no one really paid attention to the game. The night consisted of lots of interesting conversations. From discussing summer plans to talking about the process of making chocolate. From marriage to babies. You know, just casual chitchat.

Usually, we leave the pub around 11pm. This time, however, we were still deep into our conversations at midnight! So, I guess you could say we had a good time. When we finished our last beers, some people went home and others continued the fun by going to the Met, our slightly infamous karaoke bar. At 2am, it was time to go home and get some sleep.

I had a great evening with you and loved seeing some new faces! See you all this Sunday for Laser Tag!

Rockies Trip: Nightclub

During the Rockies Trip we have of course a lot of PARTY and FUN together. On our way to the Rockies we will have a Party Bus with music and free champagne for the girls (sorry boys!!) and of course you allowed to have alcoholic drinks during the drive. We will also visit in Banff the famous Nightclub called Aurora Nightclub.

 

The nightclub is in the tower level of the Clock Tower Mall and is made up of different rooms, which are the Main Mall, the Main Bar and Dancefloor, the ONYX Bar and the Lounge. I think everyone will find the right spot at the Nightclub and we will have an incredible night out in Banff.

 

The Main Hall is the area that greets you upon arrival down at the majestic stairs. The Main Bar includes the Dancefloor and also the DJ stage. The entrance for the Nightclub is included in the price for the Rockies. Let’s have an amazing night out and don’t forget ‘What happens during the Rockies stays in the Rockies!”

 

 

Keep in mind that you have to pay for the amazing Rockies Trip until the 11th of April till 3:00pm!

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,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Picture of the week

This is a tribute to a bunch of guys who have become a major part of our weekly PuB NiGHTs – not just because they are always there but because they are always in a good mood, always fun and always up for a couple of beers. They are from Denmark and arrived in September this year, so it’s been about two months I’ve known them. This “Picture of the week” shows the three of them to the left and a German INTERNeX friend to the very right at our last PuB NiGHT. I know they don’t look all that impressed in this pic but faces tell way more than words sometimes. 😉

Unfortunately, they didn’t have the chance to join us on our fabulous weekend trip to Whistler in October but I’m sure the Rockies this weekend will be the best four days of their lives!! And finally they will get their pictures taken in front of majestic lakes and mountains instead of dark pubs and bars with a beer in their hands. You should know that they hate to be tagged on facebook at our PuB NiGHTs because their family and friends back home think this is all they are doing over here, which is not true at all of course!! 😉

I hope you have a great weekend and promise me you don’t just spend it at home or at the bar. Rather do something exciting, interesting or fun instead!! Enjoy it.

Cheers

Marianne
