What to do on the weekend

It’s weekend again, and time to get out and experience some of the various great activities that Vancouver has to offer. But you might ask yourself… well here’s a couple of suggestions to help you out.

Friday

On Fridays the Rio Theatre offers you the cool opportunity to experience or perhaps reexperience good old movie classics/cult movies. This Friday, September 5th, the Rio Theatre shows the good old action packed Terminator 1 and 2 movies. The doors open at 8:45pm and the first movie starts at 9:15. The second movie starts at 11:30pm and the doors open at 11:00pm. You can of course also choose to watch both movies. A single ticket is 8$ at the entrance but you can get it for 6$ if you purchase it in advance. A double ticket cost 13$ at the entrance or you can purchase in advance and get the tickets for 10$. Rio Theatre is located at 1660 East Broadway, Vancouver close to Commercial-Braodway Station. Click here for more information on Rio Theatre.

Saturday

On Saturday you should of course join INTERNeX for stand up paddling at Granville Island. This will definitely be a fun experience! The forecast says awesome weather, so get out and enjoy the sun while it’s here.

Sunday

After a challenging hike up the Grouse grind you might want to do something more relaxing. Perhaps you want to be very early with your Christmas shopping this year… Visit the Porto Bello Market. Here you’ll also support local designers, producers and artists. You can also listen to live music while you do your shopping. At the the market you can buy fashion clothing, jewelry, various pieces of art (for instance photography art) etc. The market takes place in Creekside Recreation Centre in the Olympic Village. You can get more information about the market here.

Hope you’ll all have a nice and enjoyable weekend, and don’t forget to sign up for the dodge ball tournament happening on Monday, September 8th. You can sign up through Facebook here. Also remember to sign up for our fun and exciting laser tag event here.

Laser tag @ Laserdome

Saturday, September 13th, we’ll have a fun and thrilling evening playing laser tag! For those of you who don’t know this game… well, it’s quite simple. You’ll be equipped with a west and a special plastic gun. It’s all about shooting others while of course avoiding being shot yourself. And yes, it’s totally harmless, and it doesn’t hurt when you get hit.

The price is 15$ per person for 2 games of 15 minutes each. The game starts at 4pm, so we’ll meet up at 4:40pm. And remember not to be late. Otherwise the empty spaces will be overtaken by other people. You’ll need to sign up for this event Wednesday, September 11th, at the very latest. In this way it will be easier for me to make a group reservation. You can sign up here. You won’t have to pay in advance, since we’ll be able to pay separately at the entrance.

This cool event will take place at Laserdome, 2455 Dollarton Hwy #110 in North Vancouver.

Upcoming Events

Only one more week left in April and we have still our weekly PuB NiGHT on Wednesday the 30rd of April and of course our After Rockies Party. For the month May we have some awesome things planed just for you guys such as Laser Tag, a awesome Mexican Party, Summer night market, PuB & Club night and a Bike ride in Stanley Park. Of course we have our monthly Overnight-Trip.

 

Laser Tag

Do you like action? Fight together with your team against the others to be the NO.1 Shooter. We are going to do Laser Tag on Saturday the 3rd of May. You get a Special-Jacket and a Laser-Gun and than there is only one thing to do:Shoot everybody from the other team who is crossing your way! It’s like Paintball but it doesn’t hurt because you shoot with laser and not with bullets! So everybody who is afraid of getting hurt, that’s your chance to have lots of fun and you won’t have black and blue marks the next day!

                                                                                                            

Mexican Party

On Monday the 5th of May we will join a Mexican Party called CINCOdeMAYO in the nightclub Republic on Granville Street. There is a live Mariachi Band and the ticket also include one drink. Also their having drinks specials around $3.50. The tickets for the entrance will cost only for us $10 (normally $12). Let’s go crazy on the special day for the Mexicans.

                                                                                                       

Summer Night Market

Asian-style summer night markets are a summer tradition in Vancouver. On Friday the 9th of May we will visit the summer night market in Chinatown to eat tasty food from over 80 vendors, buy cheap sunglasses and phone cases, go on carnival rides and enjoy live dance and music performances! If the weather will be bad we will have another option for you on this Friday.

                                                                                                         

Overnight Trip to Tofino

We are planning a 3-Days-Trip to Tofino. The trip will be on Saturday the 17th(morning) till Monday the 19th of May. You will have the day off on Monday because it’s Victoria Day. Tofino is a popular tourist destination and famous for the beaches, surfing, whale watching and fishing. On the tour we will take the ferry to Vancouver Island and on our way to Tofino we will visit the Englishman River Falls, Coombs market, Roy Henry Vickers Art Gallery, hiking in the Wild Pacific Trail. Also you have of course the option to go surfing, whale watching, bear watching or kayaking. 

                                                                                                         

Pub & Club Night 

Let’s have another great Pub & Club Night on Friday the 23rd of May. First of all we will start with some drinks at the Cambies and afterwards we are planning to go out at Joseph’s Richards. We hope you will all join us for some drinks at the Cambies and to go crazy on the dance floor. “Be carefulllll” 😉

Get ready for our big bike ride in Stanley Park on Saturday the 31st of May. We will rent bikes (or bring your own) and spend the afternoon cruising around Stanley Park!

We can bike the 9km-Stanley Park section of the Seawall right on the edge of water and discover there a lot of things.

But first of all, remember that tomorrow we have a date (uhh) to play Laser tag! Let’s battle like there is no tomorrow!

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the Weekend?

Wow, it’s the weekend again! As you may know, this weekend is American Thanksgiving so there are many stores offering discounts on their merchandise in the United States and here in Vancouver.  But, there is more than shopping going on this weekend! Because it’s so close to December, lots of Christmas and winter festivities are starting to happen. We have found plenty of things for you to do so listen up!

LASER TAG

Whether you want to prove that you can win alone or team up with people and come up with a strategic plan, this will be one of the most fun times you’ll ever have! So safe up your energy and come ready to see some live action on Sunday!

  • Where?  Meet at Waterfront Station and will head there together
  • When? 1PM

Don’t forget to sign up on our Facebook event HERE!

VANCOUVER CHRISTMAS MARKET

For all you Germans out there, this will hopefully cure your homesickness! The plaza at Queen Elizabeth Theatre is transformed into a romantic tiny village with rows of little wooden huts decorated in pine branches and festive lights. You don’t want to miss the live entertainment, carousel rides and shops selling handmade gifts!

The best part is probably all the European food and drinks including German Bratwurst, Swiss Raclette, Lebkuchen, baked apples, spiced Christmas Cake (Stollen), the famous German Christmas Drink (Feuerzangenbowle), authentic hot spiced red wine (Gluehwein) and a selection of German beers (Weissbier).

I went last year (and will go this year again) and for sure would recommend everyone to take a visit!

  • Where? 650 Hamilton St
    Vancouver, BC
  • When? Nov. 24- Dec. 24 @ 11AM-9PM
  • Cost? $5 or$2 Special from 11am – 4pm on Mon – Fri

For more information, check out the website here.

WATCH THE GREY CUP

I know many of you are football (American football in a Canadian league, not soccer/England football – yes confusing, I know) fans out there.  Though the Vancouver Lions lost last week in the Conference Final, you sports nuts will want to watch the Calgary Stampeders battle against Toronto Argonauts.

The “Grey Cup” is the championship game in the Canadian Football League (CFL) and is the name of the trophy given out to the winners. It’s the 100th anniversary of the league so this is a must watch event!

Cheers,

Queenie
