What to do on the weekend?

Another week is coming to an end, and we are not just looking forward to a regular weekend – no it is Labour Day Weekend, which means you have 3 days off! Yes, you got it right, Monday is a holiday. 🎉
But what to do with your three days of freedom?

Friday:
You can enjoy an easy evening at the Lower Mainland’s massive Shipyard Night Market in North Vancouver. Wander around and just enjoy the local music, art, fresh food and regional products. It is the perfect location to spend a Friday evening – nothing too crazy, you can eat dinner there and just hang out with your friends while exploring what’s on offer.

Saturday:
How about exploring the outskirts of Vancouver? You could plan a daytrip with 40155928480_50ca0297d5_nsome friends, or on your own, to Vancouver Island, Whistler, White Rock or Squamish. While you can have an easy day in White Rock or in Victoria (Vancouver Island) just walking around the city exploring the cute roads and checking out the many shops, you could also get a lot more active in Whistler or Squamish. The wonderful nature offers many different hiking trails which will reward you with breathtaking views over landscapes you probably haven’t seen before.
Once you are back in the Van, the evening offers you another great thing to do: In North Vancouver you get the chance to enjoy some outdoor movies again! And it’s not just one movie, but two. In one night. Great, right?
At 8pm you can watch Finding Dory and at 10pm The Goonies.

Sunday:
Ever wondered how a Japanese festival would look? Well, this Sunday you have the chance to get to discover it. Make your way to Burnaby and try some typical Japanese food, watch a martial-arts show and enjoy an entire tea ceremony. Doesn’t this sound like fun?

Monday:
Shops are closed today, but you still have loads of options to spend your time on this Monday. There is a Cyndi Lauper concert at the PNE, so get ready to have some fun singing along to her all-time classics and some new hits. If you don’t want to spend money on a ticket to her concert, why not visit the Taiwanese Festival in Downtown Vancouver. You can enjoy amazing Taiwanese culture, their food and even some Taiwanese art in the streets around Granville and Robson.

I hope you enjoy your weekend.

How Was Your (Long) Weekend?

I hope you had a lot of fun during this long and hot weekend. I certainly did, so if you want to know what I did during this long weekend then keep on reading.

On Saturday I became a tourist for a few hours by going on an amazing and interesting tour with a hop on hop off bus. And even though I have been here for a month now, I saw things of Vancouver that I did not see yet. I also learned things about the city, which is always really cool if you ask me.

After the hop on hop off bus I grabbed some diner and went to the Harbour Green Park to meet some people from INTERNeX. We had some drinks near the water and went home pretty late.

On Sunday I finally had the opportunity to sleep in and I went to West Vancouver to meet Bart and Lena on the beach which was really nice considering the temperature. After cooling down on the beach we had some really nice dinner at Whole Foods and went home to fresh ourselves up a bit.Weekly event 1

At night we met up again in the Harbour Green Park, where we had some drinks again and did some funny drinking games. And we went home even later this evening.

 

On Labour Day we had our weekly event which was Music In The Park at the Capilano River. I arrived unfortunately later for the event because of traffic problems, but when I arrived the event was a little bit different than we expected it to be. We decided to go to Lynn Valley where we had some lunch. The rest of the group decided to go to Lynn Canyon for a nice swim, but since I forgot my swimming wear and was really tired from the night before, so I decided to go back to downtown and had some amazing dinner at Commercial Sushi (definitely a place I recommend everybody) before heading home.

Thank you all for joining our weekly event and hope to see all of you at the PuB NiGHT tomorrow!!
