What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, meaning it’s the weekend. If you don’t have any plans yet, here are some ideas. I hope you’re hungry, because this weekend is a foodie’s dream.

North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market begins today, with some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. Just to give you an idea of the size, the free market has over 100 vendors, and you will also be able find 19 beer garden, as well as other entertainment. The market is open from 5pm to 10pm. In case you already have plans for tonight, don’t worry the market is open every Friday until 27 September. More infos at: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/north-vancouver-shipyards-night-market-dates-2019

And now for all the Germans and German fans: The “Prost Haus”, a Bavarian themed beer hall, just opened on the rooftop of 900 Granville street. There, you will be able to find authentic German food like Pretzels, Bratwurst and, of course, Beer. So if you’re feeling a bit homesick, go check it out.

In case you’re in the mood for a bit more Mediterranean food, specifically Greek, I got you covered. This weekend is the 41st Vancouver Greek food festival. Not only will you find lots of food there, but also music, entertainment and history. So if you want to experience Greek culture, this is your chance. The festival is at 4500 Arbutus St from Friday to Sunday.

After all that food you might want to consider some exercise. A group of us is going to the trampoline park in New Westminster on Sunday evening at 5:30. You are still welcome to join. Just sent me message on facebook, so I know who is coming. https://www.facebook.com/events/2258540541073418/
