What to do on the weekend?

Can you hear the weekend whispering your name? Are you in doubt what to do? Vancouver offers many indoor and outdoor activities and I understand that it may be difficult to choose what to do. Soooo, read and decide!


A good breakfast is the best way to start the day. The Elbow Room on Davie Street: “Food and service is their name. ABUSE is their game (so have some fun)”. This place is known for their verbal abuse and their awesomeness at the same time. Their service is not the most polite and if you don’t finish the food on your plate a donation will be collected for a charity. But it is said that they have the best breakfast in town and going there would be a real experience. They serve meals from eggs to pancakes and from sandwiches to burritos and quesadillas. Defenitely worth a try!

“We love our customers and make them feel right at home. Whether you are famous or not, we will treat you with same abuse! All our staff are efficient and fun, just make sure to be open-minded and be prepared for great food and Fun, Fun, Fun!!!” (www.theelbowroomcafe.com)

Address: 560 Davie Street


Hands up if you do not like beer! Ha, that’s what I though. Okay, I guess most of you have already seen or read it somewhere, but this weekend is Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival. It is the biggest craft beer festival in Canada with over 100 breweries and up to 400 beers to sample.


Tickets can be purchased for either Saturday June 6th or Sunday June 7th and will roughly cost you 40 dollars and gets you entry to the festival, entertainment and a souvenir tasting glass. Inside tokens only cost $1,25 each.

Are you keen to join yoga classes but not able to afford it? You can now join free yoga classes on Kits beach and in Dude Chilling Park.

Until August 31st free yoga classes are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Kitsilano beach between the pool and the tennis court by the big trees from 7 to 8 p.m.

Last summer, the community gathered 3 times a week and sometimes up to 75 of us flowed together in the sunshine! In total offered 37 free classes to 1080 people! The only thing you need to bring is a mat or a beach towel.

And then there is free yoga at Dude Chilling Park daily at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. This yoga class is offered by yoga instructor Solomon Montijo who believes that the practice of yoga is so priceless that it should be available to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. As they state in their mission statement: “We do not believe in the commodification of an ancient spiritual tradition. Yoga cannot be commodified, as it is nobody’s to sell.”

You are encouraged to show up as often as you would like! Isn’t that awesome?

These classes ask you to bring:
– A hydrated body + water bottle
– Yoga mats (bring extras, if you have them!)
– Towels, blankets

Both yoga classes do not require any previous yoga experiences. So why not join? I am keen! Let’s go together sometime!


This Sunday, June 7th you could visit the Kitsilano Farmers Market at Riley park. A market filled with organic and conventional products: meat, cheese, seafood and plants. Also, they offer tasty baked goods, beautiful crafts and musical entertainment by local musicians. You must wake up early though, because this market is only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


For the adventurers out there, go zip lining on Grouse Mountain! How awesome is that?! They offer two different types of tours: a 5-line tour and a 3-line tour. The 5-line tour includes a sky-ride, mountaintop activities and Peak Chair access and costs $109, whereas the 3-line tour includes a sky-ride and mountaintop activities and costs $70.

Both tours will give you a unique perspective of Grouse Mountain! Tours are departing every 30 minutes. Visit this link to book your tour.


Tips for the weekend

The weather won’t be as good this weekend as it has been the last few days, nonetheless there are some nice markets that you can visit in V-Town (how I like to call Vancity).

There are two night markets in Richmond; the International Summer Night Market and the Richmond Night Market.

1. The International Summer Night Market is said to be “One of the Top 4 Night Markets in the World”. The International Summer Night Market is an annual tradition that has built its reputation as a truly diverse event and is recognized as a world class landmark attraction in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.

The admission fee for this market is free, as well as parking. Their operating hours are Friday and Saturday 6pm – 11pm and Sunday 6pm – 10pm.

2. The Richmond Night Market charges a $2,75 admission fee – their opening hours on Friday and Saturday are 7pm – 12am and Sunday 7pm – 11pm.

The address is 8351 River Road. The best mode of transportation for visiting The Richmond Night Market event is to take Canada Line and get off at the Bridgeport Station. It is highly and strongly encouraged and recommended you take the skytrain!

4. Besides night markets, there also is a lovely day market in Kitsilano. Every Sunday from 10am till 2pm.

5. Located in the heart of Vancouver’s busy West End, this laid-back Saturday market looks onto beautiful Nelson Park and adjacent community gardens. Weekly, West Enders can enjoy the best in local produce, prepared foods and crafts. Hot food and coffee on-site as well. Take the dog for a walk and enjoy a market in your urban backyard!

Picnic at the Beach review

On Saturday we had a nice small picnic at the beach. It was a lovely sunny day in Vancouver and the city turned it to a beautiful place with crowded beaches and sports everywhere.

We met at the boathouse in Kitsilano and from there we looked for a nice spot on the beach. Once we found we we unpacked all our blankets and started our tanning session. ATTENTION: do not forget to get yourself some sunscreen! The sun is very strong in Canada. We had crackers, chips, strawberries, bananas and many more for picnic. Even some went for a short swim between our tanning sessions.

After the picnic it was time to do some sport, there was a volleyball tournament going on, but once it was finished we could play some volleyball or Frisbee. The warm weather stayed till late in the afternoon and so we left to beach to get some dinner and came back to the park to eat. We finished our day at the beach at around 8pm.

We hope you all enjoyed the nice weekend and we hope to see you at the pub-beach-night this wednesday. Tomorrow we will give you more information about the place and time!

Enjoy the warm weather!
