What to do on the weekend?

It is already Friday again, which means we will provide some tips for you on what to do on the weekend! Since we already experienced our weekly event at the Canucks Hockey game, you will need to make some plans by yourself for this weekend. With these tips we hope you will still get the best out of it!

We did not have the best weather last week, but maybe you already noticed the sun goes down later and later, which means… SPRING is coming! And when you say spring it is time for some flea markets. The Eastside Flea is starting of this weekend in the Ellis Building at 1024 Main Street. They have over 50 local vendors, food trucks, a live deejay, seasonal drink specials, pinball and many more. The Flea market will be held every other weekend and you can enjoy them on Friday from 6 to 10 pm and Saturday & Sunday from 11 to 5 pm.

For the fast deciders: on Saturday Insomnia is striking down in Vancouver at the Pacific Coliseum. With a killer line-up, including Hardwell and Laidback Luke, this will definitely be a party you wouldn’t forget. But if you want to be surprised and still want to have a good night out, it is also a great idea to join the Insomnia afterparty! These tickets are way cheaper and you will still get a great experience with surprising acts. You can find all the information at solidevents.ca.

But bare in mind that this Saturday night out would be a short ride, since the clocks are changing! Remember when I said spring? Well, spring is coming fast now since we will set the clocks one hour forward and enjoy longer daylight from now on.

There will be something riotheatregreat to do on Sunday as well. Remember the big failure of this years Oscars? Well where they definitely didn’t make a mistake was at the nomination for Oscars Best Picture “Lion”. Director Garth Davis’s film tells the story of an Australian man who finds his long-lost family in India with the help of Google Earth. You can watch this beautiful story at the Rio Theatre at 3.30 pm. This theatre was built in 1938 and has been fully restored with a state of the art digital projector, surround sound, comfortable brand new luxury seats and a huge stage for live events. A great catch for some Sunday afternoon chillings! You will find all the information at riotheatre.ca.

Besides all these activities, in March there is also the Vancouver International Dance Festival, which is definitely worth checking out. With a wide variety of dancers and styles and beautiful combinations like b-boys with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, this will definitely be a great activity for your weekend.

For the skiers and snowboarders here, the snow is still going strong so if you want to have fun on the mountain that is still possible! I will be at Cypress tomorrow and you are always welcome to join and hit some slopes!

Have a great weekend and I hope to see all of you again at PuB NiGHT this Wednesday.

Smart Saver

It’s Sunday again, time for a new smart saver! Since the weather is going to be sunny and warm, way not cooling off in one of the lakes near Vancouver.

Lynn Canyon
Lynn Canyon is easy reachable by transit (cost on the weekend only $2.75!) with many places to cool off. Lynn Canyon even has a suspension brigde. The main swimming hole is at the top of the trail where you can watch, if you are lucky, some cliff jumpers jump. However this is also a very busy place, so keep walking on towards the twin waterfall, there it is more quite and also a really nice spot for a picnic.

Cabin Lake on Cypress Mountain
A perfect combination of hiking and relaxing. Check here to see which trail you want to take up to the lake. After the hike you will find yourself in a beautiful place with a nice lake and a perfect spot for lunch. Take a dip in the water before you head back down again.

Pool99
And than there is pool99. A very popular spot for cliff jumpers, the water is freezing cold. It’s is a bit tricky to find your way there, you might have to jump over a located gate, however since it is weekend you won’t be the only one going up there.

So enjoy your weekend and to give you the heads up for next weeks smart saver: Free Transit on BC Day.

Free Transit on BC Day
Due to the delays on the 23rd of July on the expo and millimim line. Translink offers compensation to everyone who want to use the services of translinke on BC Day, you can travel for FREE! So look up what is going on on BC-day in Vancouver and around and get your free transit day!

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of this week!

Hey guys, how is your weekend going? Here are some of the highlights for this week!

Last Saturday, we went up to Cypress for a day of skiing/snowboarding! It was a lot of fun but also exhausting after a couple of runs! Although we were all at different levels with our skiing/boarding skills, we all waited for each other so that no one would get left behind. Then we watched the fireworks show in the evening as we stood outside the lodge, which looked so pretty against the snowy hill. To finish the day, we stopped at the lookout on the way down the mountain to view the city lights!

Then on Wednesday, we went to the Blarney Stone for our pub night! It was tons of fun while we talked and drank. It was super awesome just getting to know the new members of our group as we all as catching up with every one.

Tomorrow, we will be heading down to Chinatown to watch the Chinese New Year parade! You don’t want to miss this awesome cultural event, because there’s going to be so many fun things to see, eat, and do! If you’re bored and you’re alone at home, you have no excuses but to come out! Check out our Facebook event page! 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Cheers,

Flora

You should come out to this one guys, we will have such a great time. And contrary to what many people might believe, Mondays no longer seem to be the worst day of the week but rather people generally tend to have the same sour mood towards every day of the week!

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the Weekend?

January isn’t exactly the most exciting month. We’re all tired from the Christmas festivities and broke from it.  We’ve come to the rescue on how to beat the January blues. And, these activities won’t break the bank!

Project Barca

Let’s do something different this weekend by watching a dance performance with the INTERNeX crew. I think its safe to say that most of us are trying to discover ourselves and find adventures at our age. With the theme “Going ‘West’ to find the ‘East’/ Going ‘East’ to find the ‘West’, Project Barca talks about the idea of self-discovery through dancing.

  • When? Sunday, January 12th @ 8PM
  • Where? Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 West Hastings Street)

To join this event, sign up on Facebook HERE.

Snowshoeing

Don’t know how to ski or snowboard, but would like to hit up the slopes? Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery that Vancouver has to offer and it is a great workout. Plus, its easy, if you know how to walk, you know how to snowshoe. It isn’t too pricey either. It costs $27 for rentals and pass at Seymour and $26 at Cypress.

The weather is beautiful this weekend, so get out there!

Vancouver Comic Con

Do you love to geek out with the Avengers or the Justice league? Then, Vancouver’s very own Comic Con is perfect for you. If you bring a new or gently used graphic novel, then admission is FREE and it will be donated to various Vancouver schools. There will be prizes and special guests including Shaun Knowler, the artist and writer of (one of my favourite comics) Transformers.

  • When? Sunday, January 13th @11am to 5pm
  • Where? Heritage Hall, 3102 Main Street Vancouver

For more information, check out the website HERE.

Happy weekend!

Cheers,

Queenie
