How was your weekend?

It’s Monday again which means that the weekend is already over. But since my weekend was so much fun, I would like to look back on it one more time with all of you guys! So if you want to know what I did this weekend than keep on reading!

My weekend started off on Friday when we decided to play a really fun game at the office called Zombies. When we were done with the game I met up with Roslyn to grab some food at The Pint before going to her and Linda’s Birthday Party in 131 Water.

Once we all arrived in the pub we played Card Against Humanity, which is always a lot of fun. After a couple drinks and some food we decided to continue our night at The Bourbon where we had some more drinks.

Since it was a long night on Friday I woke up pretty late on Saturday and watched some Netflix before it was time for me to get ready to grab some dinner and go to the Christmas Karaoke Trolley tour. Once I finished my sushi dinner we met up with all the other INTERNeX candidates at Canada Place where our tour started. We first visited Bright Nights at Stanley Park, drove past Hycroft Manor and St. Paul Hospital and finished our tour at the VanDusen Botenical garden.

On our way to all these amazing destinations we sang a lot of Christmas Songs like “All I Want For Christmas Is You” “ Last Christmas” “Let it Snow” and many more. The Christmas Lights at VanDusen and Stanley Park were really pretty and impressing. At VanDusen we all enjoyed a Hot Chocolate or Mulled Wine.

When the tour ended we decided to go to The Blarney Stone where a live band was playing some music and after a couple of drinks we went with some people to The Bourbon to proceed the party there.

On Sunday I slept in and visited David at Horseshoe Bay at night and after he was done with work we went to downtown to the Yale Saloon for a drink. It was a lot of fun since they had karaoke night there and you all know how much we love karaoke.

Thank you all for joining us for the Christmas Karaoke Trolley Tour and we hope to see you all at the next PuB NiGHT in The Charles Bar!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Black Frog

Thank you all for joining us on Wednesday for our PuB NiGHT at The Black Frog!

We had a lot of fun and we all hope you did too! We started our night after work when we went to The Pint to enjoy the Wing Wednesday deal. After we filled our stomachs with some chicken wings and a beer it was time for us to go to The Black Frog.

When we arrived they were broadcasting the Oilers game since The Black Frog is a pub, which supports the Oilers from Edmonton. After the game was finished they played some music and we enjoyed some cocktails and beers.

After a while we all decided to go to The Met of course to sing some karaoke songs and ended our night there.

We hope to see all of you this Saturday for the Christmas Karaoke Trolley!

How was your weekend?

This weekend was a weekend to remember! So if you would like to know what we did keep on reading!

On Friday after work I had a pretty relaxed evening. I first went up to Horseshoe bay where I grabbed a coffee at Blenz and waited for David to be done with work. After he was done we went to downtown to grab some late dinner at Mc Donalds before heading home.

On Saturday I slept in and met up with Roslyn and Rebecka for some sushi before heading to The Bourbon. At the Bourbon we did some shots and enjoyed the Happy Hour deal. Later also Tom, Sebastian and his colleague joined us for some drinks and dancing. After a long and fun night we decided all to head home.

On Sunday the alarm went off pretty early since it was time for the Santa Claus Parade in Downtown. We saw a lot of fun cars passing by like the Vancouver Police Department, the Firefighter Department and of course Santa Claus himself!

After the parade we grabbed some lunch at Boston Pizza which included a lot of desserts as well. When we all finished our delicious lunch we headed to the Christmas Market at Jack Poole Plaza. It was a really pretty market with a lot of German inspired Christmas stands and also a lot of German food.

When we were done with buying some German food and drinking our warm apple cider and hot chocolate we ended our night!

Thank you all for joining and we hope you had an amazing weekend as well. Looking forward to see you all at the PuB NiGHT at the Black Frog!

We sang songs like Bad Day, The Banana Song and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

We had a really fun night and I hope you did as well!

We are looking forward to see you Saturday for the Santa Claus Parade and The Christmas Market.

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday again which means that the weekend is just around the corner! If you don’t know yet what you want to do on the weekend then keep on reading because we are going to give you some tips!

Since it is almost December, there are already a lot of Christmas events going on. Like for example you can go to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see the Canyon Lights.

22799557324_a99330f147_zOn Saturday you can also visit the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival which include family friendly activities, holiday crafts, food trucks, live entertainment and the lightning of a 55-foot Christmas tree. Also the Vancouver Christmas market located at the Jack Pool Plaza started this week. This Christmas market is an European-style market that’s great for holiday window shopping and festive things to eat. There is on most days (especially weekends) also live music.

If you don’t feel like Christmas yet than you can also go to the Disney on Ice show or Cirque du Soleil which are both still in town.

And the INTERNeX family will go to Seattle this weekend to do some sightseeing and of course some Black Friday Shopping!

We hope you all have an amazing weekend and we’re looking forward to see all of you tomorrow for Seattle!

Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s almost the end of November, which means that Christmas is just around the corner. And while we already had our Thanksgiving here in Canada, our southern neighbours will have their Thanksgiving this Thursday. A big tradition in the U.S. that Canada also took over is the famous Black Friday weekend.

So if you have always wanted that amazing new Apple computer or that amazing designer handbag but never had enough money for it, then read this blog because Black Friday is coming!

Black Friday started in the U.S but there are many speculations on how it started. One of the most recent reason for Black Friday is in 1950s Philadelphia, The Army and Navy college football teams celebrated their fierce rivalry each year with a neutral-ground clash in Philly on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Shoe ShopThe day before, thousands of people from surrounding communities would flood into the city in anticipation of the big game. They’d take the opportunity to stock up on clothes, home goods, and other gift-able items at central Philly’s many retail shops and department stores.

The annual wave of shoppers and fans was enough to clog streets and strain local health and safety resources. City Police would have to work extra-long shifts dealing with the additional crowds and traffic, and Shoplifters would also take advantage of the bedlam in stores to make off with merchandise, adding to the law enforcement headache.

In the 1980s and 1990s, large-format “big box” stores like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy proliferated around and between regional and superregional malls, fleshing out the countries ever more competitive suburban retail landscape. It was during this period that Black Friday came an own term. Signs advertising blowout Black Friday deals (and insanely early opening hours) in urban and suburban shopping districts were published and for years, every Black Friday was bigger than the last.

Canada took over the Black Friday hype, but also added Cyber Monday, which is a day where all kinds of electronics are sharply discounted.

So for everybody joining us to Seattle this weekend, make sure you’ve got enough sleep, a lot of space left in your suitcase and of course have your credit card with you because it will be a shopping heaven!!

Hope to see you all at tomorrow’s PuB NiGHT!
