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.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

It’s Monday, it’s raining, and it’s cold. At least we can say we had a good weekend. We went on Sunday to the Eastside Flea Market, in the Grandview – Woodland neighborhood, just next to Commercial Drive.

This kind of markets is very common in Canada. It’s a place where the people rent a little space to sell or barter items. Normally you can find used goods and second hand clothes, but also handmade jewelry, furniture and even food. They are the best places to buy low price merchandise, vintage fashion and unique gifts.

There was a little place to buy coffee and cakes and tons of things to look over! I bought one watch for only 5 bucks! We were talking with the sellers and we found some very interesting people, who travel around North America buying and selling antiques and old clothes. I found a stand with leather jackets from the 70’s! They were too much  expensive for my student budget, so maybe the next time 🙂 .

There were also some stands where the people were selling their own stuff. This is other thing that is very typical here, making yard sales or garage sales. Instead of throw out the things that they don’t need any more, the people sell them in front of their houses or in the flea markets. Or sometimes they leave boxes outside of their houses and you can take everything for free! It’s very funny because this is a thing that you always saw  in the movies!

After that we went to Cafe Deux Soleils, just next to the Commercial Skytrain Station. I strongly recommend that place, is so cool and they have concerts and humor shows all the time for $5! We finished up our evening with some huge hamburgers.

So it was a nice evening! But our camera is broken, so we only have the pictures that Mercedes took with her mobile phone… the quality is not the better, but I hope you‘ll be able to appreciate the place!

See ya!

 

Clara.
