How was your weekend?

Yet another great weekend is behind us. I was glad to see so many of you guys joining our events during these past days. Let’s look more into the things we did with the INTERNeX gang.

The weekend kicked off with an awesome Game Night at our INTERNeX office. A lot of people showed up for the Game Night and it almost got crowded at the office. We played a lot of different games like Pictionary, Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity, to name some. The night started around 6pm and almost didn’t end. Finally around midnight we managed to put the games back in their places and continued the night to somewhere else. This time we decided to go to the Pint, which is located right across the street from the International Village Mall. It was pretty convenient location for us. There we continued the party on the dance floor for a couple of more hours.IMG_20190407_201957.jpg

We ended the weekend with an evening trying to escape some crazy Escape Rooms at Locked Canada. There were 18 of us in total participating. We were divided into three different groups for three different Escape Room themes. Two of our groups managed two escape and I guess one group is still trying to find their way out. The theme we did with my team was the scariest one and I can tell you that it sure was scary. After we escaped the other teams told us that they’ve heard us screaming every now and then. I think we might go to the Locked Canada again some time soon since everyone enjoyed this event so much.

This week’s PuB NiGHT will be @ The Yagger’s Downtown at 8pm, see ya there!

What to do on the weekend?

Most wanted time of the week is here and we have some plans made up for you guys. This weekend is a bit special one since we are organizing two different events. I hope everyone can find something they like out of this weekend ☺

A one must go event is happening already tonight. It is time to see who is the competitive one, who wants to win and who is a bad looser. It is time to test our friendships and see who has luck (or skills) in games tonight. So what time is it? It’s Game Night time of course! We will start the Game Night at the INTERNeX office around 6pm. If you can’t make it till then don’t worry, you can join whenever you feel like it. We will have a blast for sure and might continue the night somewhere after.

On Sunday we are doing something I’m super excited for. The INTERNeX gang is going to Escape Room! There is a huge group of us going and we are doing three different rooms. Lets see who gets out first (or if anyone). Some of the rooms are scarier than others and I chose to go to the scariest one where you actually start the game with your one hand handcuffed into the wall. I’d say scary and exciting. We’ll see how I feel about it after Sunday. For the Escape Room people: We will meet at the Locked Canada 1050 Kingsway at 6.45 pm. Please be on time since the rooms won’t wait.

Enjoy your weekend and hope to see many of you guys tonight!

What to do on the weekend?

Although it looks like Mother Nature is planning to hydrate many plants this weekend, rather than blessing us with sun, that will not stop us from having fun. Here are a few ideas on what to do this weekend, indoors as well as outdoors.

35632322844_211194ba23_nAre you 19+? Lucky you! The Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival opened its doors again last Friday and this weekend is your last chance to visit it. The festival has been taking place for almost 10 years and it attracts many visitors. It consists of 100+ craft breweries and cideries, to ensure every visitor will find something they like. Not only does this festival include beer; it offers a variety of food, art and live music as well. The festival is located at PNE/Playland (2901 E Hastings Street) and it is opened from 2 to 7pm on Saturday and 12 to 5pm on Sunday. Day tickets are $39 excl. tax.

Looking for a cheaper, yet similar activity? On Sunday, the Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival is back in town. This festival includes a dozen trucks offering food and beverages. Besides that, visitors can enjoy live entertainment and there will be artisan market vendors all around the festival area. You can find the festival on Sunday, June 3rd at Concord Pacific 88 Pacific Boulevard. The best thing: admission is free! You only have to pay for food and beverages at the event.

39482802191_63ec9b6d21_n.jpgSince it might rain most of the weekend, why not plan a fun activity indoors? Call your friends and visit an escape room together! SmartyPantz offers many different rooms to choose from, for example escaping from a dream, a murder or a ghost. Costs are $25 and you will receive a discount if you go with a group.

 

In case you just want to take it easy this rainy weekend: invite a group of friends to your house and let them bring games, movies and snacks. A great day guaranteed!

Have a great weekend everyone! See you on Sunday when we go to the Trampoline Park!

How was your weekend?

My weekend? Great. Active. Short. Sunny. Full of snow.

As all of you surely know, last Thursday was the National Margarita Day. Of course, we had to celebrate this important event. Therefore, we went to “La Casita” on Friday, a Spanish restaurant in Gastown, where you can get a huge margarita (so big that you can easily share it with two or three people) in different flavours for only $24.

Saturday was a perfect winter day: sun and snow in whole Vancouver. Great conditions for a hike! The destination this time was the Norvan Falls in the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park. The whole park was covered in a thick layer of fluffy snow. We hiked forhike 2 week5.jpg about five hours along a river and up the mountains, always surrounded by beautiful scenery. Since the sun was up and started melting the snow, the hike became a game whenever a little snow avalanche fell down from the trees. When does it come down? Who’s head is getting hit next? But we managed all slippery stairs and other obstacles successfully. After a quick stop at home to get some dry clothes and a hot shower, it was already time to leave again.

Many familiar faces found their way to the escape room. My team and I gave the best to solve all the tricky riddles to escape from the zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately, time was running out, so we could not open the door ourselves. To calm down from all the stress, we headed off to Malone’s for a beer or two. The final stop of the night was the Roxy.

Only a few hours later, my alarm went off again. I jumped in my ski pants and headed out to the science world skytrain station where already some people were waiting with their skies on their shoulders. It looked funny since there was almost no snow anymore cypress week 5in downtown. The bus took us to Cypress Mountain, one of the local mountains of Vancouver. After a few minutes of skiing in the clouds, the sun started to shine. The weather changed so quickly up there, it was crazy! While skiing and snowboarding, we had a stunning view over Vancouver and surrounding from the top. The day passed by quickly, so it was already dark when we returned our rentals and stepped back in the bus. Enjoying a full day on the slopes on a casual Sunday is definitely something I can get used to!

So I am starting off this week with sore muscles, but great memories. I hope that you also had a great weekend. Time to make plans for the upcoming ones during our PuB NiGHT at The Beaver Bar on Wednesday.

 See you there!

What to do on the weekend?

Hands up if you’re ready to do something you’ll regret this weekend. Go forth! You have my blessing. Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely fun. If you still have no idea what you will regret, I have some things listed down to make your weekend great.

For people who love skiing or snowboarding this will be a good weekend. Why? The Grouse Grind and Mt. Seymour are opening the ski season this weekend. You can get your lift passes with a discount and try the first snow of this fall.

Weekends don’t pay as well as weekdays but at least there’s hockey and to make it even better, there is not one but two games you can enjoy. The Giants will show what they can do on Saturday and Sunday. If you are not a real hockey fan, you probably aren’t Canadian. You can go to the market on Sunday instead. Cannery’s farmers market in Richmond or Hastings Park Winter Farmers Market will be the best options for you to go.

This Saturday is Remembrance Day. Remembrance Day is a memorial day since the end of the First World War to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. There are a couple places where you can go, but the ceremony at the Cenotaph at Victory Square is particularly impressive. Starting at 9:45 am and taking place at the park at the corner of West Hastings Street and Cambie, the service includes a performance by the Vancouver Bach Youth Choir, the sounds of a 21-gun salute by the 15th Field Artillery Regiment firing from Portside Park, and a Royal Canadian Air Force fly-past.

Later this Saturday we will meet at the Escape room. We will solve some puzzles that lead the way to the exit. It’s all about teamwork and logical thinking. Can we make it in time? We will meet up at 6:30 pm in front of the escape room. See you there!
