Summer Time is the Best Time!

I just absolutely love summertime. Fresh, cool air breezes through the city and brings with it the aroma of sizzling meat on the barbecue. In Vancouver, the groups of people clustered on Robson Street signal the latest in-store sales and product promotions. In Toronto, the  GO trains become packed with Blue Jays fans waiting to see Ricky Romero wind up on the pitcher’s mound. Ahhh, summer.

This past Saturday was a great summer day for myself and some friends. If you live in Vancouver and were anywhere near Gastown this past weekend, you know that the Vancouver International Jazz Festival was on. As we strolled down Water Street, the atmosphere surrounding us was uplifting. Magicians and jugglers lined the streets, welcoming any and all spectators. Nearby pubs were packed with jazz fans yearning for a pint. Lemonade stands and corn on the cob stations offered food to satisfy anyone’s taste buds and two different stages hosted the smooth, rhythmic beats of Jazz.

Looking around, I couldn’t help but really feel a part of something that day. People lucky enough to live in Gastown hung out their windows, watching the live performances from the comfort of their own home. The crowds watching the shows were both young and old, tourists and Vancouverites alike – all coming to enjoy the same genre of music. It was a great day!

If you didn’t get the chance to go out this past weekend – shame on you…buuuutt don’t worry. The Jazz festival will continue until July 4, 2010.  For more information on show times and locations, visit the website.

PuBNiGHT at the Blarney Stone

It took a while but here are the pictures from the PuB NiGHT! I had some technical difficulties uploading the pictures! I hope everyone enjoyed their night at Blarney Stone?!  With friendly staff and a good atmosphere we understand why The Blarney Stone was voted Best Irish pub in Vancouver again last year.

There was a live band, and as the night progressed they played some nice music where people could dance to.

During the evening some ladies from the Rum Company Captain Morgan give out free rum and coke as part of a promotion event. All in all we had a fantastic time and we will definitely  host a PuBNiGHT again at the Blarney Stone.

Of course we took lots of pictures during the evening. You can find all the pictures of the PuBNiGHT by clicking on this link.

I’d like to thank everybody for coming out and hope to see everone again at the next PuBNiGHT. It was a very fun night and it was great so see other INTERNeX candidates. Didn’t make it to yesterday’s PuBNiGHT? Be sure to join us for the next one! On Wednesday June 23rd we will hold our first INTERNeX Got Talent Show at the Karaoke night at the Metropole! What better way is there to meet other INTERNeX candidates than to sing a song together! You can even win a price, so be sure you come check it out!

Buy Your Tickets Now for Kooza – Cirque du Soleil!

KOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.  KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.

The Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.

Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.

To get your tickets for KOOZA Vancouver and for more information click here. Shows begin July 22, 2010.

If you’re living in Calgary, you’re also in luck! Kooza is coming to Alberta in September. For information click here.

Don’t miss your chance to check out this show! Manouk and I will also be going to one at the end of July!

Have a great day!
