INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming Events

I can’t believe the last week of September is here already! The weather is getting slightly cooler every day, but that’s not going to stop us from going out is it?

So, let’s see what we have planned for this week…

Always wanted to go to India, but it’s a little too out of reach? Well, we have the solution for you: we are going to the Punjabi Market this Sunday!

You will find great Indian food (I’m always up for a good curry), Bangra music and tons of shopping. Us PR girls love shopping, but even if you don’t buy anything, there is so much to see!

The Punjabi Market is full of Indian culture, even though it’s not really a “market” as it’s titled, you will feel like you are transported to another place entirely.

When? Sunday 30th of September at 12PM
Where? Meet at Waterfront Station to go together to Punjabi Market (Main Street from 48th Avenue to 51st Avenue)

As always, our weekly Pub Night will commemorate this Wednesday. We love to see new and old faces so come out, grab some beers with us and have a good time!

Keep checking our Facebook and blog to know where we will meet. If there is any pub or bars that you think we should check out, let us know in the comments below!

A little sneak peek at the upcoming events in October: Thanksgiving Dinner, Whistler trip, BC Museum, Queen Elizabeth Park, weekly pub nights… and of course, HALLOWEEN!

It’s going to be a super packed month, but super fun too! Are you ready for all the exciting events coming up?
