Smartsaver Vancouver

Summer is finally here! During summer time there is a lot to do around Vancouver and there are some good cheap options for that! So to get your summer started here are some ideas.

From July 4th till August 22nd you can watch an outdoor movie for free on Second Beach. They are a part of the Evo Summer Cinema series and all you have to do is bring your own chair or blanket, or just sit on the grass if you don’t mind! You can download the free Outdoor Movies BC App to see the schedule!

They also show outdoor movies in Burnaby, North Vancouver and at Canada Place. Burnaby shows movies on Sundays from July 9th till August 27th. The dates for North Vancouver differ, so make sure to look that up if you decide to go. Every Thursday night there will be a movie at Canada Place from July 27th till August 31st. All of these movies are free to watch!

If you would like to become a little more active this summer you can take Zumba classes at Canada place. Every Monday from July 24th till August 28th you can join the free Zumba class! Or hike the Grouse Grind to see the beautiful view from the top of the mountain. If you hike up, you only have to pay $10 to take the Gondola back down.

If it becomes too warm to do something active you can always cool down in the Kitsilano pool. The pool is located at Kitsilano Beach and the admission is only $5.86!

You might have been thinking about doing a boat tour around Vancouver, but these can be quite expensive, so a great alternative to that is taking the Aquataxi. The Aquataxi will take you around downtown, but it’s only around $6!

And let’s not forget that all the beaches around Vancouver are free and a perfect place to spend a lazy day!

I hope to see you all tonight on PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

It’s almost weekend! The weather is supposed to be amazing and there are fun things to do. Here’s some inspiration to get you started!

On Saturday we will go to the TD Vancouver Jazz Festival. The festival lasts for two weeks and there are events all around town. Fora lot of the events you do need tickets, but on Saturday there will be free concerts on Robson & Georgia. We will meet in front of the London Drugs on Georgia Street at 12 PM.

Another event that’s happening this weekend is the Dragon Boat Festival. This will take place on Saturday and Sunday with various locations all around False Creek. There will be boat races and free concerts.

On Sunday you can go to Greek day on Broadway. This is a street festival on Broadway from MacDonald to Blenheim with food and entertainment.

Or if you would rather take it easy you could always just go to one of the many beaches around Vancouver. You can go to English Bay, Second Beach, Third Beach, Sunset Beach, Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks or Wreck Beach if you don’t mind the optional clothing.

Just like every weekend this summer there’s the Richmond Night Market, Summer Illumination Night market and several Farmers markets on Saturday and Sunday.

I hope to see you all tomorrow at the Jazz Festival!

Experience IT review – Jericho Beach

Since the weather was so amazing this weekend we decided to have a relaxing day at the beach instead of paintballing. Thank you all for coming!

IMG_3887.JPGWe decided to go to Jericho Beach. This beach is a little further away from downtown and therefore way less busy then English Bay or Kitsilano Beach. It’s perfect if you just want to relax. If you don’t like the beach that much there is always the option to go lay in the park right next to the beach.

We spend most of our afternoon relaxing, listening to music and chatting, the way you should spend your day at the beach. Some of you where brave enough to go out for a swim and said the water was really nice. After we all got a little sunburned and tired from doing nothing all day, we decided it was time to go home and had to say our final goodbyes to Merle, as she left on Sunday.

I had a great day and I hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

It’s almost weekend! Here are some ideas on how to make your weekend great!

9712752916_eeb63073e6_o.jpgThis weekend it will be amazing weather again, so we decided to go to Jericho beach on Saturday.  Jericho beach has several picnic tables where we could eat our food, so you can take food with you for a nice picnic on the beach or just chill and enjoy the nice weather.

If you are into beer you could go to the opening night of the Vancouver Craft Beer Week at the Roundhouse on Friday night. There will be samples of beer (naturally), food trucks and live entertainment. A ticket for the event is $49 and includes 15 drink tickets.

You could also go to The Richmond Night Market. They opened on May 12th and will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from 7 pm till October 9th. They sell a lot of food there, so make sure you go with an empty stomach! The admission is $3.75.

18721359_10209072326626307_1192880159_oWe will be having great weather for the whole weekend, so if you are not able to join us on Saturday then you can also go to one of Vancouver’s many beaches on Sunday. English Bay Beach, Second Beach, Sunset Beach and Kitsilano Beach tend to be a bit busy during days like these, so you might want to consider going to Third Beach or Jericho Beach if you like it a bit more quiet.

You could also use the good weather to go on a hike, but just be careful if the hike is fully in the sun and make sure you stay hydrated!

What to do on the weekend?

It is Friday again and you know what that means, right? Time to get out of the house and celebrate the weekend. This weekend will be a long weekend, so you will have lots of time to explore British Columbia and Vancouver.

18195054_10155240525552103_6049775120854058037_nWe were already really lucky with the weather and it is getting better and better, which is why it is time to do outdoor activities. In this way we can enjoy the sun to the fullest. Therefore is INTERNeX planning a bike ride through Stanley Park on Sunday. You may have already seen the totem poles, but there are so many other things to explore in this amazing park.

There are also several events taking place during this weekend, such as the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair and the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. The Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is a festival which is 4 days in total. This event is especially for the cowboys and cowgirls in our group. So let your inner cowboy free during this great festival. The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is a festival with several comic-related events. These include readings, presentations, discussions and a big exhibition area. If you like comics, then this is definitely the place to go!

Besides that you can also go to Tagore Spring Festival in Surrey on Saturday. There are various kinds of performances, including dance, music and poetry. Next to that you can also learn a bit more about the Canadian culture while you watch presentations about all the different traditions and heritages. The festival is paid by donation, so definitely worth checking out!

17352379_10208531571187759_1886154942491608944_nIf you would rather watch sports during this weekend, you could go to the BC Place Stadium on Saturday and watch the Vancouver Whitecaps play against Sporting Kansas City. Of course, you could also go to one of the great sports bars in Vancouver. When you would rather spend your time outside because of the expected good weather, then you could go to one of Vancouver’s great beaches such as English Bay, Jericho Beach and Kitsilano Beach.

I hope you will have a great weekend! See you in Stanley Park or at next week’s PuB NiGHT!

Picnic at the Beach

This weekend is going to be hot. The weather is forecasted up to 25 degrees, so get your summer clothes out and join us for a beautiful day on the beach!

Since the sun will come out we decide to have a picnic on the beach. The idea is kinda the same as our International Dinner, everyone brings some food along and we can have a big picnic party. Of course this time it does not has to be anything typical from your country.

We will meet at 2pm on the Kitsilano beach at the boathouse, from there we will find a nice spot on the beach for our picnic. If you are coming later, you can just give us a call or stroll along the beach and you will find us!
We can also make a stop at one of the five ice-cream shops, one even serves frozen yoghurt, in Kits or for some smoothies.

We hope to see you at the beach
