INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

It’s such a beautiful day!

OMG! It isn’t supposed that Vancouver is a raining city? Today the sun is shining more than ever and the rest of the weekend will get better, as we can see at the weather forecast.

Impossible to stay at home, not? Well, start to preparing your shorts and sunglasses because we have a lot of plans for you!

Vancouver International Burlesque Festival

Do you like burlesque? I think Vancouverites love it, judging by the strange customs that the people use to wear during a typical Monday at 14:00 in the middle of Grandville St.

The burlesque, a kind of cabaret or variety show, nowadays, has emerged from the pubs in the suburbs to become a very famous fashion due to celebrities like Dita Von Teese. If you would like to attend it, you can buy the tickets in the following link.

  • When: May 2-4, 2013
  • Where: Depends on the day. Check the website for more info (click on 2013 schedule).

Visit the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG)

If a large number of semi-naked woman are too much for you, here you have a more relaxing plan: visit one of the most important art galleries in Vancouver. The CAG it’s a free space with international recognition, which advocates for news talents and the public access to art. One of the most awesome exhibitions is As It Comes for the Canadian artist Raymond Boisjoly. The title of this exhibition is the title of the one of his pieces too, which appears at the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station as you can see at the picture below.

  • When: Tuesday to Sunday 12 – 6 pm, FREE.
  • Where: 555 Nelson Street, Vancouver, British Columbia MAP.

Take advantage! It’s such a beautiful day!

Illuminate Yaletown!

What a weekend!

Superbowl AND the New Year’s Parade in Chinatown on one day! And there is no time to rest!

PuB Night at The Calling on Wednesday and the celebration of the first anniversary of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games which took place in 2010 are coming up this weekend! But this is not what this blog should be about…

With this blog, I would like to get you into the mood to celebrate the anniversary in an appropriate way.

There are a lot of amazing free art shows happening in February, one of them the free winter party called Illuminate Yaletown, featuring contemporary light art installations. Local restaurants and businesses all along Hamilton and Mainland Street present unique art installations, creating a combination of light, sculptures and animations to creatively dealing with themes ranging from Yaletown’s industrial history to environmental issues

As Illuminate Yaletown takes place on February 11-12, (6p.m. – 10.30 p.m.) you can perfectly combine it with a downtown visit to all the events taking place around the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games Anniversary on February 12. Not to forget that Hamilton and Mainland Street is the centre of Yaletown’s nightlife area, what downright invites you to take a rest and have a drink in this beautiful district!

Check out the map of the location!

Hope to see you all at this week’s PuB Night! 🙂
