There will be a UBC Halloween party tonight if you are not done with Halloween yet. If you are done with Halloween, maybe the paint competition ‘Battle of the Brush’ is something for you. There are also hockey games from the Giants and Canucks or a football game from the BC Lions for the sport lovers. The Craft Beer Festival is taking place in Coquitlam. Over 40 breweries will let you taste some of their best beers.

Saturday we will walk the Quarry Rock hike in Deep Cove. We enjoy the sunset at the end of the hike. Afterwards we will have some drinks, because Marvin will leave us after this weekend.

On Sunday we will go do the brewery tour on Granville Island. We will see how the beers are made and taste some tasters. We will meet in front of the brewery at 3:45pm. Have a nice weekend and I hope to see you somewhere this weekend!

What to do on the weekend

It’s Friday again! Time for a new what to do on the weekend blogpost. It’s going to be as sunny as last week, so time to get out and do something!

screen-shot-2017-02-24-at-11-46-19-amFirst of all, some of us are going to see the last game of the season of the Junior A Team Coquitlam Express. It will be a great game to watch, so we are really looking forward to it! If you still want to come, then send us a message before 3PM! After that you can always still book tickets yourself, but then there is no guarantee that you can sit next to us.

Another event tonight is the Grand Finale of the Battle of the Brush. It is a live painting competition in the Heritage Hall on Main Street. The finalists will start painting around 8:30PM, after that the audience can vote on the winner of the competition and the winner will be announced around 11:15PM. Sounds like a really cool event to join!

Farmers Markets are an amazing place to buy fresh vegetables and fruits and a lot of other things. There is one on Sunday in Hastings Park, which is in East Vancouver, so close to downtown. Another good option to go is the Farmers Market in the Nat Bailey Stadium. This one is on Saturday and is next to the Queen Elizabeth Park, so you could make a big day trip. Both markets open at 10AM and close around 2PM.

This weekend it is the last weekend of the Talking Stick Festival. It is a festival to explore aboriginal culture through their arts. They show this through fairs, theatre, dance, film, music and nightlife. It is an amazing event to get to know more about the aboriginal art and First Nation’s culture.

I am looking forward to see you tonight or on the next PuB NiGHT!
