What to do on the weekend?

“You know it’s Friday when the weekend comes knocking at your front door.” (Anthony T.Hincks)  The week is nearly over and it is going to be weekend again. Soooo…….. it’s time again for some weekend activities!

15265492048_991d3d535c_zFriday evening Ellen DeGeneres is stopping in Vancouver for her show. The famous American comedian is going to entertain you the entire evening. So if you have some bucks to spend, then go to the Rodgers Arena and enjoy her show. Instead of laughing, you also can go to the BC Place and support the BC Lions against Edmonton Eskimos in the CFL. Maybe you prefer an alternative without spending so much money, then you should visit North Vancouvers Craft Beer week. This Friday is the start of the event. The week features beer specials, live music, brewery tours and people having fun at various venues throughout North Vancouver. 

Halloween is coming soon, so it’s time to turn on the Halloween mode:

To start the Saturday you should check out Harvest Glow. It’s a new autumn-themed indoor attraction with pumpkins, sparkling lights and family-friendly things to see and do at Milner Village Garden Centre at 6690 216th Street in Langley.  Harvest Glow is only the warm up, afterwards there are a lot of other Halloween activities in and around Vancouver: Here re just a few 🙂

  • Lost Souls of Gastown – a guided walking tour with Forbidden Vancouver through the streets and alleys of historic Gastown.
  • VanDusen Glow in the Garden – lit-up carved pumpkins and Halloween activities at VanDusen Garden. In 2018 the family-friendly event is even bigger than last year and the theme is Hänsel and Gretel.
  • Mission Nightmare Haunted House – a popular community-run Halloween attraction in Mission with proceeds benefiting a local charity.
  • The Haunt of Edgemont– an amazing attraction at a family’s home in North Vancouver that’s open to the public by donation.

Something you definitely consider about is supporting the Canucks in the Rodgers Arena. They play against the Boston Bruins.

6264676541_e06eb26f91Scaaaaaaaary …Halloween is coming soon and everybody is preparing themselves for that. So you should do it too by using the Sunday !

So why not combining a visit of Fly over Canada and Halloween? At the moment a Halloween theme is taking place in this multi-dimensional theatre at Canada Place. So check it out!

Do you prefer more suspense? Then go to River’s Edge: Home for the Criminal Mind. It’s a haunted attraction at the Mission Raceway Park in Mission.

Maybe a breathtaking and blood freezing experience …

I hope you have a great weekend and maybe we will see us next week at the Steamworks. 🙂

PuB NiGHT Review: Halloween Party

Thank you all for joining us yesterday for the Halloween Party at Caprice Nightclub! We had so much fun and I hope you did too!

Caprice is a night club located on Granville Street / Entertainment District. It is a big club with two levels and on the ground level two different rooms. Every Friday night they organize International Fridays with all kinds of different music genres and if you’re on the guest list you can get in for free.

This “PuB NiGHT” was of course a little bit different because of Halloween. When I arrived at the club, Granville Street was already packed with a lot of people in all kinds of costumes, for example I met JigSaw and even the clown from IT.

After most people arrived we entered the club and got something to drink. The club was nicely decorated and the music was very good, with genres like R&B and Dance.

I hope that you all enjoyed Halloween and we are looking forward to see you all on Sunday for the Brewery Tour!

Since Halloween is right around the corner this weekend there will be a lot of Halloween activities. You can enjoy an adults-only murder mystery event at Science World today called After Dark Zombie Breakout or you can go to Dooms Night which is a Halloween Party (19+) at the Pacific Coliseum.

15442778009_c638d172e4_zOf course you also have a lot of haunted attractions like for example the Barclay Manor Haunted House, VanDusen Glow in the Garden at the VanDusen Garden and the Fright Nights at the PNE.

What to do on the weekend?

Open the beer bottles, put on your casual clothes and prepare yourself for the parties. Weekend just started! For people who love the circus, Vancouver is the place to be. Maybe you already saw the big tents at the Pacific Boulevard and were wondering what is happening there. From this weekend on Cirque du Solei is giving big shows every weekend till December. Enjoy magic shows, acrobatics and much more.

On 31 October we will go to the Halloween party at nightclub Studio. You can sign up now, so you won’t miss this great party. Prepare yourself well by going Halloween shopping this Saturday. We will meet in front of Value Village to get the best costume for you. And we have got something special for you. We will give away two free tickets! One ticket for the person with the scariest costume and the other ticket for the person with the funniest costume.

After the shopping there is enough time to go to the Kitsilano Autumn Fair. This is a free community event with a lot of activities both indoor and outdoor. The event will take place from 10 am till 3 pm.

Of course there are a lot of Halloween events going on like Ghost Train in Stanley Park, Fright Nights at Playland or Bear Creek Halloween Trains and Potter’s House of Horrors in Surrey. Whatever you decide to do, or decide to do nothing at all, I hope you have a great weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

Friday the 13th!!!!!! Even though this day is well known as a day of bad luck, but since it is Friday this also means that it’s almost weekend!!! So I you would like to get some inspiration for what to do this weekend then keep reading!

Bart and I will join some other people from INTERNeX after work for the Oktoberfest at UBC tonight. Unfortunately tickets are sold out but if you still would like to go to an Oktoberfest event there are several ones on Saturday at he Shannon Hall at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds and at the Harvest Haus.

IMG_2335.JPGToday is also the last day of the Vancouver Film Festival so if you would like to visit this event you should hurry up!

On Saturday there is also the event called Light The Night, which is a fundraising event for people with Leukemia and Lymphoma. Lanterns will be lit by people and organizations who raised money for the charity.

On Sunday we would like to take you to the Halloween Parade, but if you do not like Halloween or are not able to join us you could also go watch a game of Vancouver Whitecaps and there also a lot of other Halloween events going on the next couple of weeks.

Hope to see you all at the Halloween Parade!!

Smart Saver Vancouver

Knock Knock…. Who is there?….. It’s the ghost of HALLOWEEN! Yes people, that’s right, it’s just only 3 weeks until Halloween. That means houses will be decorated again, people will dress up, kids will go trick or treating and parties will be held. Since dressing up has been fun ever since we were kids ( let’s be honest probably everybody dressed up when they were a child) a lot of you are may considering to buy a Halloween costume. To help you out a bit and to also make sure that you save some money to spend during the amazing Halloween party, we listed down some Halloween costume shops where you can buy fun and cheaper costumes.

Value Village

Value Village is a Halloween costume shop located at E Hastings St and Victoria Drive. They are the perfect store for people who do want to buy a costume but are on a budget. They have a selection of second hand costumes and a lot of D.I.Y. tips.

They are open from 9 am to 10 pm everyday, except Sunday, when opening is at 10 am.

Just Imagine Costumes

Just Imagine is a store located on Granville Island in the Kids Market. They do not really have a lot of cheap costumes but they do have some costumes on sale which are a pretty good deal.

They are open from 10 am to 6 pm, 7 days a week.

Seasonal Halloween stores

When Halloween is coming closer there are also a lot of stores opening and selling Halloween stores. Those are most of the times only open for the season but you might also want to check out Shoppers Drug Market, Rexall, London Drugs, Dollarama, Dollartree etc.

Do it yourself

And if you are a very crafty person D.I.Y. is always a good thing to do, just buy a white t-shirt cut some holes in it and add some fake blood and you are good to go!

Hope you all will join us next Saturday during our own Halloween shopping!
