Summer Salsa Cruise in Vancouver!

What better way to enjoy an evening than with a night of salsa dancing! Grab a friend and head out for a night on the water! The MV Britannia is located at the foot of Denman off Georgia Street in Coal Harbour, and is Vancouver’s largest 3 level cruising vessel, with a capacity of just under 500, where two levels are inside and the third is just under the stars.

This event offers an exciting taste of Latin American Culture within the beautiful waters of Vancouver, cruising gorgeous False Creek. An outstanding night filled with only the best in music, entertainment and surroundings. Your ticket includes:

  • A sultry mix of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and Reggaeton and of course some Top 40, R & B and Hip Hop also blended into the night’s music vibe.
  • Take part in the beginner’s Salsa Lesson taught my Vancouver’s best instructors, then sit back and watch the show that follows while later testing your new moves.
  • Dance the night away on either of the 2 levels that are covered and to cool off, venture to the 3rd floor to continue exploring the world of Latin dance.
  • Whether you are taking a class to learn the dance that continues to sweep the world or just want that cruise around Vancouver’s stunning harbour your evening be a memorable one.

INTERNeX PuB NiGHT @ The Cambie!

Oh yes, it’s time for another INTERNeX PuB NiGHT! This time, we’re heading over the Cambie Bar in Gastown!

The Cambie bar is part of the Cambie Hostel, which all began in 1887, when a new saloon on the bustling Cordova Street quickly established itself as a happening social centre for locals and travelers alike. When the Prohibition of the 1920’s was in full swing, bootleggers floated their forbidden wares through False Creek and delivered them straight to the Cambie storeroom through an extensive network of underground tunnels. The General Store & Bakery adjacent to the pub saw its share of excitement too, as a boxing ring where five cents would buy you hours of ringside entertainment. Although the hotel got a major facelift in 1997 to camouflage a century of drunken debauchery, the spirit of excitement and fun is still very much alive.
So join INTERNeX at the Cambie on Wednesday, July 7 at 300 Cambie Street in Gastown! 8 p.m. is our usual meeting time, so come around then! This time we’ll have a little trivia quiz so we can dish out some prizes. Make sure to be on time or miss out on some good stuff!
See you next week!
