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!


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!


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.


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!

INTERNeX Canada: Laser Tag Review

Lots of fun and action, that was the Laser Tag yesterday.

We went to the Laser Tag Arena in North Vancouver. It was absolutely amazing.
All in all 24 people showed up to play against each other and everybody was totally into it.
We ran around, were lying on the floor and hid behind the walls and different items.

Everybody had to wear a jacket with projectors and we were divided into 2 teams.


We played 2 games, each game was 15 minutes and it actually was really exhausting.
Everybody tried to be the best and to shoot as many as possible with the laser guns and to lead their team to success.

To see all pictures click here

We are glad that you had fun and perhaps we will find another weekend where we can do that again and improve our laser- shooting skills  =)

Thank you very much and see you on Wednesday at the PuB NiGHT!
