What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday so… cheers to the weekend! I don’t know about your Friday night plans, but mine are pretty cool if I may say so myself. What I’m doing? Well, I’m going to the Rogers Arena to see Harry Styles Live on Tour. I bought my tickets about a year ago, so it is safe to say I am very excited about it. (There are still a few tickets left, in case you’re interested). But before my excitement takes over, let me tell you about the events happening in Vancouver this weekend.

According to the weather forecast, it will be rainy this Saturday. However, the temperature will be around 21 degrees, so as long as you have an umbrella, you should be good to go. Now the weather issue is solved, we are left with just one more: what to do? But don’t you worry, I got you!

Carnaval del Sol, the largest Latin American festival in the Pacific Northwest, is taking place in Vancouver this weekend. On Saturday as well as Sunday, visitors can enjoy live music, Native Canadian and Latin American art, traditional folk dances, cooking lessons and a fashion show. All with the purpose of celebrating Latin America! If you enjoy learning more about other cultures and partying, this is THE event for you. Entrance is only $2 by donation for adults. Tip: Buy a Super Pass for $10 so you can receive gifts, skip the line at e.g. the beer garden and… wait for it: you can win a trip for two to Latin America! The festival opens at 11am, closes at 10pm and it is located at Concord Pacific Place.

20872046193_b77294e20c_n.jpgIs the World Cup all you have been talking about the past couple of weeks? Well, then you might be interested in the next event I am about to mention. On Saturday evening, the Vancouver Whitecaps will play against Chicago Fire at BC Place. It starts at 7:30pm and lucky for you, there are still some tickets left! You can buy them here.

It’s the weekend of festivals! Besides the one I mentioned earlier, there is another one on Commercial Broadway. The Commercial Drive Car-Free Festival, to be exact. This festival commenced in 2005 and has taken place on a yearly basis ever since. 9317994916_5cd2675451_n It covers 15 blocks in the area and includes live music, community activities, local artisans and a wide variety of great food to choose from. Moreover, the message behind the festival will be discussed. It is opened from 12pm until 7pm and there is no entrance fee. FYI: TransLink will re-route the Commercial Drive bus this Sunday, in order for the festival area to be as accessible and car-free as possible.

I hope all of you will have a great weekend and I will see you next Wednesday at Malone’s for PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

Only a few more hours till the weekend! The weather on Saturday isn’t going to be that good, but Sunday should be a little better.

16237737_1615329781815800_1946877102_n

On Sunday the INTERNeX gang will be going to Granville Island. There is a public market with lots of food, so make sure you come with an empty stomach! There are also a lot of cute little shops.

However, if that’s not enough food for you, you can always go to the Surrey Greek Food Festival. This is a community festival whit a lot of Greek food. You can go on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there is no admission fee.

Another option is going to Commercial Drive on Sunday for Italian Day on the Drive, this street festival celebrates Italy. And while you’re on Commercial Drive you should do a little pub crawl through all the micro breweries that you can find there. At the micro breweries you can get a couple of tasters for a few dollars.

If you would rather do something relaxing but cheap, you can go to the family favourites movies at Cineplex for $2.99. At 11 AM on Saturday they will show A Dogs Purpose at select theatres.

Like every weekend there are a lot of farmers markets. On Friday night there is the Richmond Night Market and the Illumination Summer Night Market. On Saturday you can go to markets in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Fort Langley, Maple Ridge, Trout Lake and Squamish. And on Sunday you can go to Ambleside, Coquitlam, Kitsilano, Ladner, White Rock and Whistler.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you at PuB NiGHT!

Review: Pub Night @ the Reef

Yesterday we went for a great Pub Night at the Reef. We almost passed the Caribbean restaurant because the sign outside was very small. The Reef is in general not that big and so it was pretty cozy to sit there. As you can see on the picture we had a lot of fun and enjoyed the evening by chatting about various topics like the famous Manneken – Pis in Belgium. It was great to see some new faces again. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us because we really want you to enjoy your stay here in Vancouver and we will do our best to make you get the most out of your stay.

The food was good and they also offered a delicious selection of beers and cocktails. For me it was the first time that I tried Poutine. Even though it was really spicy I liked it. For those of you, who don’t know Poutine, it’s fries with melted cheese, sauce and chicken and typical for this area. So it’s one of the things you have to eat during your stay in Vancouver.

Hope you all had a great evening and I’m looking forward to see you again for another Pub Night next Wednesday at 7 pm.
Have a look here to see some more pictures from the evening at the Reef.

I wish you a great rest of the week and an enjoyable weekend.

I’m looking forward to the Whistler trip with some of you, guys.

So, if you didn’t try it yet, you have the opportunity to do that this Wednesday at the Reef. They serves some September Features like Passion fruit Mousse for $5 or Maracas Bake, which is fried bread with chili lime seafood salad & daikon slaw. If you don’t like the Caribbean taste, you’re also able to get food like salads, tacos and burger. They offers different drink specials like the Red Stripe Lager on Wednesday.
