What to do on the weekend?

Weekend is here and for most of us it means a lot of free time. You might have already wondered, “How should I spend all of this glorious time I have for the weekend?” Well you’ve come to the right place because this blog post will give you an answer for that.5535679756_798fe4019e_n

First of all, in case you did not know yet, it is St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday! That means the whole weekend is full of fun activities. Here are some of them:

FRIDAY – Go check the Irish Appreciation Night at The Blarney Stone 6-8pm. The night starts with FREE Irish appetizers at 6-7pm and complimentary Irish liquor & beer sampling from 6pm until supplies last. On top of that there will be live Irish inspired music!

SATURDAY – On Saturday there are plenty of different events through out the day. You can join the St. Patrick’s Day 5K run which goes around Stanley Park. Take a part of the race or just go take a look and cheer for the runners. If you are in the mood for partying this Saturday sure does offer a lot of options for that too. There is even a St. Patrick’s Day Boat Party happening.

SUNDAY – The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, which happens to be largest all-male choir in Vancouver, are having a concert at the ACT Theatre in Maple Ridge. You might also want to go to the St. Patrick’s Day Festival at the Blarney Stone Pub. The day starts off at 10am with an Irish brunch. On top of that there will be stilt-walkers, face painting, Celtic dancing and plenty of other stuff. Go and see it by yourself! ☺

What to do on the weekend?

This weekend, we are all wearing green! It is St. Patrick’s Day and even if Ireland is a few kilometres away, this is a huge happening in Vancouver. Here are some ideas where to celebrate, but also how to avoid the green craziness.

St. Paddy’s Day, as the Irish call it themselves, will be celebrated in several places in the city. It doesn’t matter if you’re Irish or not, it is definitely going to be fun. The INTERNeX crew is going to drink some green beers with Vancouver’s students at the UBC. This party is nearly sold 5535679756_798fe4019e_nout, so be fast if you still want to join us.

Next to that, every Irish pub in Vancouver is hosting a green party. There will be a huge one at Blarney Stone, where we celebrated the kick-off of the festival past Saturday (some of you might remember that awesome night). You can spend your entire day there, from brunch in the morning to live music at night.

Another famous location for Saturday is ‘Doolin’s Irish Pub’ at Nelson Street. You can get breakfast from 10 o’ clock on and dance to live music throughout the day and night. So, get your green clothes out of your closet or buy some cheap accessories (Dollarama or Dollartree) and celebrate like the Irish.

Or does all this seem a bit too crazy and you are not in party mood this weekend? Then I have another idea for you: take a walk and take some beautiful photos. The Cherry Blossom Festival is starting right now. You can find many Whitcomb cherries that are blooming already. To find the best spots, you can take a look at this map. Just grab your camera and put on your walking shoes, there you go!

My outfit is ready and I am really looking forward to seeing you at the UBC party tomorrow! For the rest of you, have fun celebrating St. Paddy’s or enjoying the sun outside this weekend!

Pub Night Review: Blarney Stone

Team wet pigs and team so good were ready to start the Trivia. While the waitress was serving us some food and drinks, we were thinking about the answers of all the questions appearing on the screen.

After every round was a bonus question where you could win a pitcher of beer. Unfortunately, we were not smart enough to win a pitcher of beer. We got the score back at the end of the game and we were not that bad. But some other people were a little smarter than us, so no prize for us. After the Blarney Stone with went (of course) to the Metropole to sing our songs. It was not that busy this time, so we could sing many songs.

Blarney Stone is a really fun pub in the weekend if you like Irish music. Every weekend there is a live band playing and people dancing all around. During the week they have nice events organized and you can often find a organized party here as well.

It was a lot of fun playing trivia with you guys. I hope everybody is rested enough for the ice-skating tomorrow. Let’s get hurt ourselves on the ice! Or not if you are familiar with ice. However, I hope to see you at Robson tomorrow!

Pub Night Announcement

Wednesday half way to the weekend, let’s celebrate! This time our weekly pub night will be held at the Doolin’s Pub.

The Doolin’s Pub is an Irish Pub located on the corner of Nelson and Granville. The whole experience at the Doolin’s ir rooted in Irish tradition, food, drinks and services. The staff is out-standing in pouring the perfect Guinness Pint, so that means it is a must-try at the pub. As said the pub is rooted in Irish tradition, so the service are wearing kilts in honor to the Celtic heritage.

 

On Wednesday live music will start at 9.30pm and Stella’s are on special. Doolin’s food range from $7 to $13, so it is a affordable place to have your dinner or a small pub snack. For more information click here or here. And of course do not forget to join our Facebook event.

St. Patricks Day Review

That was one insane night…

We met in front of Joseph Richards on Granville street at 9pm to go into the club. After a short queuing line we hang our jackets and went for our free green beer, which by the way taste like normal beer. The club was already busy and we joined the others on the dance floor. Even that it was St. Patricks Day the DJ did not play any Irish music, good for us and our dance moves.

Of course we had our regular dance battles in the INTERNeX circle, which is so much fun. If you do not know what I mean, I mean the times we are standing/dancing around in a circle and someone is dancing in the middle of the circle.

If you want to see more pictures of the ‘Green Party’, click here  and if you have some pictures you want to share, upload them on Facebook or send us a mail and we will upload them for you.

We hope you all had a great evening and we will see you on Friday for the Mexican Dinner

PuB NiGHT Review!

IMG_0011Yesterday we went to Blarney Stone, a classic Irish pub in Gastown, for our weekly pub night.

As soon as you step inside, you’ll be welcomed by a cozy and relaxing atmosphere.

The place and the service were really nice, and the drinks were not pricey (as I announced, $4 Pints, Highballs and shooters and $2 sliders) Not a bad deal, right?

By the way, I tried the sliders and yam fries and they were really tasty!
