What to do on the weekend?

Weekend is here and for most of us it means a lot of free time. You might have already wondered, “How should I spend all of this glorious time I have for the weekend?” Well you’ve come to the right place because this blog post will give you an answer for that.5535679756_798fe4019e_n

First of all, in case you did not know yet, it is St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday! That means the whole weekend is full of fun activities. Here are some of them:

FRIDAY – Go check the Irish Appreciation Night at The Blarney Stone 6-8pm. The night starts with FREE Irish appetizers at 6-7pm and complimentary Irish liquor & beer sampling from 6pm until supplies last. On top of that there will be live Irish inspired music!

SATURDAY – On Saturday there are plenty of different events through out the day. You can join the St. Patrick’s Day 5K run which goes around Stanley Park. Take a part of the race or just go take a look and cheer for the runners. If you are in the mood for partying this Saturday sure does offer a lot of options for that too. There is even a St. Patrick’s Day Boat Party happening.

You might also want to go to the St. Patrick’s Day Festival at the Blarney Stone Pub. The day starts off at 10am with an Irish brunch. On top of that there will be stilt-walkers, face painting, Celtic dancing and plenty of other stuff. Go and see it by yourself! ☺

What to do on the weekend?

As you all (hopefully!) know, we are going to the Rockies this weekend! Very, very exciting! Unfortunately, not everyone is able to join us. If you are one of those people, this blog post is for you! Let me tell you about all the fun things you can do this weekend that will make up for missing out on the trip!

Did you enjoy going to a fun fair when you were younger? Going on rides? Eating cotton candy? Well, this weekend is your chance to be nostalgic and feel like a kid again! All weekend long there will be a pop-up carnival in Surrey, where you can enjoy the view when going on a Ferris wheel, bump into people when using the bumper cars and go on more adult like rides that induce adrenaline, such as the Zero Gravity ride. And even if you’re not the I-love-carnival-rides-type of person, you can still have a great time at the food court eating corn dogs, snow cones or cotton candy.

Assuming not everyo15451755782_d1b6792647_n2ne enjoys carnivals, maybe the next activity is more soothing for you. Have you ever wanted to feel Canadian? Why not go to a game of one of Canada’s national sports?! You can even choose which one! Cheer on the Canucks at their hockey game in the Rogers Arena or the Stealth at their lacrosse game in Langley, all while being surrounded by sport fanatics!

5641828620_2dd923ef30_nSunday! Which means… it’s EASTER! Although looking for hidden chocolate eggs and painting boiled eggs might seem a little childish when you’re an adult, that doesn’t mean you cannot celebrate Easter! Meet up with a friend and enjoy an Easter brunch at one of the many places offering them (Seasons in the Park, The Wild Fig, Teahouse). And if you still enjoy celebrating Easter the way you did as a kid, be my guest! Let someone hide eggs around the house (or around town if you’re feeling adventurous) and go look for them! Tip: Use plastic eggs and fill them with alcohol, drink whenever you find one!

See you all on the Rockies trip! And to those who aren’t joining: have a good weekend and enjoy Easter!

Review Elbow Room and FlyOver Canada

 

Last Saturday we went to the Elbow Room Cafe on Davie Street to enjoy a lovely Canadian brunch. And nice it was! It took quite a bit before we could finally sit down because it was so busy and we were a big group. But not after too long we had two long tables next to each other and it fit perfectly fine. Awesome to see everyone come out to join us!

After we sat down we ordered and enjoyed a nice cup of coffee or a gigantic milkshake (kudos for those shakes!)As soon as our food came in everyone stopped talking and silence took over, the expressions on your faces showed quite some contentment! That food must’ve been great, ours was for sure!

 

The food just looked amazing! There were pancakes as thick as two waffles on top of each other and amazing scrambled and poached eggs with hash browns! We were told that the staff from the Elbow Room is quite unusual and they like to insult people. However, our experience was that they were super nice to us! Apparently they liked us!

As soon as we finished our food we decided to pay and head over to Canada Place for the FlyOver Canada. But wait! Before we headed for Canada Place we quickly went by Blenz coffee to say hi to one of our friends, who joined us later!

It seemed like we all needed that stroll down to Canada Place as our stomachs were just too full! As soon as we arrived there we soon noticed that there was an anime convention going on. Interesting to see everyone dress up as their favourite cosplayer.

We got our tickets and then walked to the entrance of the FlyOver Canada, only to discover that there was a one hour wait! It must have been worth it, we thought, so we queued up and the wait started. Then, when it was finally time to enter the attraction we were first shown a movie, which was meant as introductory movie, followed by the real FlyOver. We sat down in the benches, buckled up and the experience started! Feet dangling down we virtually flew over Canada, from East coast to West coast. It was intense! It looked so real and we could hear ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ everywhere around us. Scents were released to make the experience more intense and we could even feel the wind and the mist.

Unfortunately, it only took 8 minutes, which was quite short, but awesome nonetheless.

Thanks to everyone who joined us and we hope to see you all on Wednesday for a few games of LASER TAG!

Soccer World Cup: Germany vs. USA

Tomorrow it is again time to watch a soccer world cup match together.  We will meet us at The Blarney Stone at 8:45 am to watch the soccer match between Germany and the United States. It is the third match in this world cup of both teams and also the most important match for both teams. The winner of this match will make it into the next round, for the other team it could be the last match of this world cup.

For this match we decided to go to The Blarney Stone in Gastown. We will see the match on a  20 foot big screen, that’s is really amazing, you won’t miss anything! For the matches in the morning they offer a special breakfast and brunch menu, so everything is prepared for an exciting match with hopefully the right end. 

The Blarney Stone is located at 216 Carrall Street in Gastown.

Get your german outfit out and start your morning with supporting the german team into the next round! We will be happy to see you there!

Summer 2010 List

So now that I am done all my final exams and papers I have started to put together a list of all the places, activities, foods, etc I am determined to do/try. Once I have completed these items I will let you know about them and give you a little bit of an introduction to these list items and perhaps you could try them yourself!

1) Number one on my list, surprise surprise it involves food. As some of you know today is my 22nd birthday so I have taken the entire day off to celebrate and I am filling it with all the things that I love. Starting off the day with a nice session at the Steve Nash Gym cause I am going to be indulging in some serious treats and I want to feel guilt free when I do. After my gym session I will be heading over with some of my friends to the Medina Cafe located downtown at556 Beatty Street, between Pender & Dunsmuir.

This quaint little cafe is known around the city for its unique bistro-inspired food served simply and conveniently in a comfortable, chic environment reflecting the lifestyle and desires of the neighbourhood and Vancouver at large. Medina provides a fresh and eclectic alternative with a pioneering attitude towards café culture.
Sister to neighbouring night time hot spot Chambar, Medina is a quaint café serving connoisseur-savvy coffee, Belgian waffles for sweet sustenance and a full breakfast, lunch, and brunch menu comprised of eclectic dishes created by co-owner and chef, Nico Schuermans.

When I go later I will for sure be trying their infamous Lavender Latte, will let you know how it goes!

2) The other week after my last final I headed out with one of my good friends to just have a great meal at one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets. Locate on the vibrant Davie Street at 1326.

This small Mexican Restaurant boasts some of the best food in the area and offers some reasonably priced menu items. I recommend starting off with the guacamole dip which comes with several layers of flavorful dips and a side of oven baked tortilla chips. Oh and of course you need some drinks to start the whole thing off!

Lolita’s is famous for its pint sized sangria cocktails filled with lots of tropical fruit to sink your teeth in. I might have had a few of those so I highly recommend those, they make you feel like your sipping them somewhere tropical. Its nice way to temporarily escape from your realities. After the appetizers, we moved onto the main course and we decided to share the halibut tacos…yum! After that meal were stuffed but the atmosphere was just so relaxed that we ended up staying there for a few hours. This restaurant is a little hidden so keep your eyes out for it! Great place for a date night too *winkwink*

Ciao for now
