What to do on the weekend?

Need any distraction from all the stress at work? There are a lot of events happening in the weekend, which you can attend. So get rid of your daily habits, leave everything behind and, the most important one, have fun! If you do that, you will be ready to get to work again.

You may have noticed our event for the Super Bowl party on Sunday already. A Super Bowl is a yearly American event. It is all about the finals between the champions of the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference. I16299342_10154941497017103_8138841796386126119_nt is one of the most important sports events in the United States and is sometimes even seen as a national holiday. However, it is much more than just a football match. Big artists are performing before the match and during the break. You can all watch this in many pubs in Vancouver. We have arranged spots at the New Oxford for you. There will be a comedian there and you can win lots of prices.

Besides the Super Bowl, Canada’s Women’s National team will have a match against Mexico. This match will be the first time that they will be playing in Vancouver since the Olympics. The match starts at 3 pm on the 4rd of February. There are no tickets available for the match anymore. However, you could watch the match in one of the great sports bars of Vancouver.

Furthermore, there will be lots of comedians performing in Vancouver from the 3rd of February till the 9th of February. House on Fire comedy will take place at this weekend on the 4rd of February at 8.30 pm. This time Graham Clark and Gossamer will be filling your evening with laughter. You can get tickets at the door for only $10. You can also visit the Comedy MIX on Burrard Street at 8.00 pm and 10.30 pm where Niki Glaser will be performing. To get tickets, you have to go to the website of Comedy MIX. Tickets for the show cost $28, so they are a bit more expensive than the other comedy night. However, if you are really into comedy, you really should check it out!

Last but not least, this weekend is the first weekend that the horse show Odysseo will be playing in Under The Big White Top at Olympic Village. Definitely recommended if you like horses. The show will play till the 5th of March, so you still got time to save some money and buy tickets.

Have lots of fun in the weekend and enjoy the snow! We are looking forward to see you at our Super Bowl Party or PuB NiGHT!

Smart Saver

This week we’ve got several different suggestions for reasonably priced activities that will make you save money!

On Sunday nights 7:30pm at Havana Theatre you’ll be able to join a hilarious improvisation comedy for only 8$. Yes, you can actually join this comedy. Spectators will be involved while the comedians battle against each other in a fight to be the best comedian at Commercial Drive. At the end of this great show, the audience will vote for the best comedian. So bring your friends for a funny and entertaining Sunday night at 1212 Commercial Drive. Click here for more information.

At the moment the weather just keeps being superb, and this is something that you definitely should take advantage of
since you never know if it will start raining a lot like it quite often does here in Vancouver. Take the opportunity and go with some friends on a free camping trip in and around Vancouver. It isn’t always easy to find the right spot for a camping trip without having to pay or because the site is private property. However, there are a couple of sites in and around Vancouver that offers free and legal camping. These include for instance Mount Seymore, Cypress Mountain. Click here for more information. Or if you`re not so much into camping you can just go to one of the several beaches that Vancouver has to offer and enjoy the sun.

Lastly, you might want to try out a visit and private tour of one of the most expensive houses in Vancouver for free! So feel free to dream big for a moment while walking around in houses worth millions and millions of Dollars. You`ll have the chance to take a look at massive luxurious and beautiful properties that includes more rooms than you would ever imagine. Click here for more information on how to schedule a tour.

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT review – The Comedy Mix

Last night was not the typical PuB NiGHT but a Funny Wednesday special at Vancouver’s best stand-up comedy club “The Comedy Mix”. Luckily enough, we came early and got 15 nice seats with a perfect view of the stage. The venue filled up quickly and just by the time the show actually started, there was hardly any seats left and our first beers were already gone too. 😉 I think it was like 6 comedians in total who performed that night; they were all super funny but sometimes talking way too fast, which gave us a hard time to follow their stories and to really get their punch lines. Still, most of it was hilarious and I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed so much within 1.5 hours!

As the setup at the club was sort of anti-sociable (we were sitting in one loooong row of chairs, everyone facing the stage), we decided to head to another bar after the show was finished. Of course we did. 🙂 We ended up at Relish Gastropub & Bar on Nelson Street, a cool little bar with attractive Wednesday specials. That’s what we thought in the beginning at least. This special turned out to be the kind of beer I personally would never ever drink again even if I had to but $3 for a sleeve of beer in Vancouver (!) was too tempting to resist. Oh well, good or bad beer is of marginal importance when you’re with fun people though, so I am safe to say we had a good time nevertheless. 🙂

If you are interested to see some of our ‘newcomers’ from Sweden, Denmark and Germany, take a look at last night’s pics!!

Cheers

INTERNeX Canada: Pub Night announcement – Funny Wednesday at The Comedy Mix

If you want to laugh so hard your jaw hurts, come join us tomorrow night for a fabulous stand up comedy show at The Comedy Mix! It has been voted as Vancouver’s “Best Comedy Club” and I can tell you myself, this stuff is really funny! I was there 2 weekends ago and skeptical if I would understand the humour but in the end I laughed sooo much and had a great time. Each night, there are different comedians (usually 3) that perform their stand up shows and I don’t even know who’s gonna be there on Wednesday night. Surprise surprise!! 🙂 Also, you can get drinks and food (snacks) right there, what a bonus!

The tickets are only $10 on Wednesdays (up to $20 on the weekend), so you should definitely come – I know you will love it! In order to get decent seats for the whole group we have to be there 1 hour before the show starts, which means at 7:30pm. The location is in the basement of the Century Plaza Hotel on Burrard Street, so I would suggest we meet up in the hotel lobby at 7:15pm and head down there together as a group then.

This is the link to the event on facebook.

Everything in a nutshell:

When? Wednesday, Nov 7th, 7:15pm

Where? Century Plaza Hotel, 1015 Burrard Street – meet us in the hotel lobby!

How much? Tickets are $10

How long? The show takes about 1.5 to 2 hours

See you there! 🙂

Cheers

Video of the week

For this week’s video I decided to dig up an old classic by one of Canada’s biggest actors; Jim Carrey.

Jim Carrey grew up on the east side of Canada, in Newmarket, Ontario. He started out doing stand-up back in 1979 at Yuk Yuk’s in Toronto, but it was first many years later when he starred in “Ace Ventura: Ped detective” and “The Mask” that he got his big breakthrough. Since then he has been awarded ‘funniest man in the world’, received 2 golden globes plus a lot of global recognition.

I have always been a big fan of Jim Carrey and his ability to shape his face in all kind of weird positions. In this particular clip he showing one of his many faces when he is guesting the famous David Letterman show:

If you never watched CSI, you can try search for ‘David Carusso one-liners’ on Youtube and compare it to the imitation by Jim Carrey. Not too bad, eh?

Cheers,
Mads
