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!

If you don’t like Halloween then you can also enjoy the Harrison Beer Festival on Friday or Saturday or Cirque du Soleil which is the whole weekend.

We as INTERNeX are going to Whistler this weekend for our monthly trip. Like you could have read in the blog post about the trip we will meet at 9:30 am in front of Burrard Station to start our amazing weekend!

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!

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!

WHAT TO DO ON THE WEEKEND?

Another week is nearly over aaaand it’s time to get out and enjoy the weekend. Still haven’t decided what to do? Don’t panic I have some suggestions for you:

My weekend is already fully booked and according to the forecast it seems like we will all have awesome weather for some outdoor activity. Since it’s supposed to be very nice on Saturday I’m going to see a horse race at the Hastings Racecourse. You also would like to see a horse race during your time here? So than you have to be very quick! It will be the last horserace weekend for this year. The season ends in October and first starts in April 2016 again. I’m actually really excited because it’s obviously something you don’t do that often.IMG_1827

For those who haven’t done the “standard-tourist-activities-stuff” yet you should definitely make use of the weather by going to Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain,
Queen Elizabeth Park or Granville Island. These are amazing places where you have a gorgeous view on the skyline of Vancouver.

To get into the Halloween mood you should absolutely join the walking tours organized by Forbidden Vancouver. On Friday “The Lost Souls of Gastown”-walking tour is only available at 7:00pm; the other departure times are already full booked. 6511936281_baaf4f47d0_bThe tour lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. For Sunday you still have the opportunity to choose between the 7:00pm and 8:00pm tour. The tickets are around $22. You are transported back to the 1800s when Vancouver was a frontier town with lots of violence. Do not expect a conventional walking tour! You get to know Vancouver,
especially surroundings in Gastown, a little better with some of its dramatic, terrible and forgotten plagues.

Don’t miss our Aquarium event on Sunday! The Aquarium is located in the beautiful Stanley Park.If you’re a student, above 18 years of age and have a student card, you’ll be able to enter the aquarium for ~ $20. 12463370883_aefdac5219_bIf you do not have a student card it’s ~ $29. The aquarium hosts a huge number of different animals ranging from colorful fish to penguins, and there’s always various activities going on at the aquarium. Currently there is a special offer: You save $2 on admission when you display a valid transit pass, such as a FareCard (monthly pass).

 

We will meet up at 1:30pm at the bus stop WB w Pender St NS Granville St.
