PR-team Adventures

18386724_1745195368829240_1548844133_nAs you guys all know we organize a lot of stuff for our INTERNeX family. PuB NiGHTS, weekly events and monthly trips, all of these are organized to make your experience here the most memorable it can be. Because of all these events we have a really nice group who not only attend our events, but also decide to go out together every now and then.

So Saturday we decided to go on a boat party. Some of us got pizza and did a few pre drinks before we headed to the boat, where we met up with the rest of you. We first sat down in the inside area, but quickly decided to go up to the deck to enjoy the view. When we took off you could hardly hear the music, so we made some awesome pictures and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

18424871_10209469088426198_1868080733_nAs soon as we had left downtown Vancouver behind us they put up the music and we spent most of the night dancing to Latin music. It was super fun and we made some great memories! After the boat party we all got in cabs and went to Studio Records for the after party.

I had an amazing night with all of you and even though this might not have been an INTERNeX event, we where there with 15+ people from INTERNeX. It was really nice partying with all of you!

What to do on the weekend

Its time again to think about your plans for the weekend and as always there are lots of great things to do in Vancouver.

Carnaval del Sol

In Latin American people enjoy gathering in the local “plaza” to soak up the daily happenings. Some of the scheduled events include locally and nationally renowned Latin musical artists, folk dance troupes, a marketplace that displays the work of Latin American artisans and childrens’ games. As soccer is an important activity in Latin America that brings communities together, a traditional multicultural street soccer tournament is another highlight of the Carnaval Del Sol. Also, their Latin American plaza includes an open-air food court that offers authentic Latin cuisine that is sure to attract the appetite of many Vancouverites.

July 5th and 6th at Granville Street. (More Information)

Markets

International Summer Night Market – for just $2 you get the chance to explore tons of food, cheap booths and a lot of other stuff. It’s really a interesting experience to explore the International Summer Night Market which is located at 12631 Vulcan Way (Richmond). Opening times are on Friday and Saturday between 7 pm and 12 am and on Sunday 7 pm to 11 pm.

Richmond Night Market – it is the traditional night market in Richmond. Located at 8351 River Road (Richmond) with 300 vendors and tons of food, the entrance is just $2. The opening times of the Richmond Night Market are Friday and Saturday 7 pm to 12 pm and on Sunday from 7 pm to 11 pm.

North Vancouver Night Market – The Night Market on North Vancouver is just on Friday night between 5 pm and 10 pm. Over 80 vendors, 30 food trucks, music, artisans and a beer garden at the Shipyards in Lower Lonsdale for free!

The Surrey Night Market- The Surrey Night Market will be an open-air summer market for local residents and small businesses to sell and enjoy a variety of local foods, services and goods. This night market will be a multicultural event for all the residents of Surrey and neighboring cities. It will be located at the Cloverdale Exhibition Grounds and will begin Saturday, July 5th.

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

So I just checked three different weather forecast websites to get inspired about what I could possibly propose to you as cool stuff for this weekend in Vancouver. I soon figured this was pointless as they pretty much only told me that it’s fall now and I should probably bring an umbrella – just to be on the safe side. Here are some great suggestions regardless of the weather:

  • Culture Days 2012: Vancouver Latin Event

Come celebrate united with 21 Spanish speaking countries that share the same language, music, arts and film. Experience the Latin flavor and feel the rhythm dancing Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata and Cha Cha Cha. Free dance lessons start at 8am, continuing till 10pm and followed by dancing till after 2am. No cover, no fee for the dance lessons all night!!! For info and reservations call Robbie Sanchez at (604) 355 1416 and find out more online.

When & where? Sat 29th & Sun 30th, 395 Kingsway Ave, Howard Johnson Hotel

  • Vancouver Film Festival 

VIFF is among the five largest film festivals in North America as it screens films from 80 countries on 10 screens. The international line-up includes the pick of the world’s top film fests and many undiscovered gems.  VIFF 2011 included 20 World premieres, 30 International premieres, 49 North American premieres and 40 Canadian premieres. As the critics say, VIFF is very much a festival “designed for the benefit of people who love films and people who make them.” Check out the schedule and ticket prices here.

When & where? Sept 27th – October  12th  @  Vancouver’s movie theatres

  • Owl City concert 

Do you remember the catchy song “Fireflies” from like 3 years ago? Yep, that’s the band I’m talking about. They are playing downtown tonight and tickets are only $35 (including fees)! Hurry up and get them here.

When and Where? Friday, Sept 28th, Commodore Ballroom, Granville St

Only recently, Owl City released their new album with the lead single “Good Time” featuring the Canadian sensation Carly Rae Jepsen (“Call me maybe”). Take this happy pop song as a start into another weekend. 🙂

Hope you guys have a GOOD TIME.

Cheers

INTERNeX Canada: Latin Dinner Night Review

On Friday the 23rd a big group of us gathered together for a delicious Latin meal at a Mexican Restaurant; La Casita, in Gastown. When the first group had arrived a waitress lead us to the downstairs area where they had reserved a big table just for us. I was very impressed with the atmosphere they have created here. Everything is very colorful (the walls, table clothes, chair covers) and we all really enjoyed the fact that they played great Latin tunes in the background. It really made you want to get up and dance!

When we were seated we ordered a round of margaritas to get us started before dinner. The strawberry margaritas are highly recommended! Once every one had arrived (a grand total of 20 INTERNeX members!!) we all placed our food orders. There was so much to choose from! To name a few; chimichangas, flautas, tortillas, tacos and meal came with rice, beans and salad. Even though we had to wait quite a while for every one’s food to arrive, I felt it was definitely worth the wait. Some of us couldn’t even finish our meals because there was so much on one plate!

All in all, it was great to have so many people come together and share a meal together. And for those who haven’t had Mexican food before; it is something I really think you should try!

For more pictures of the Latin Dinner Night please visit our flickr page.

Would you like to join our next INTERNeX event? Keep an eye out for our ‘Upcoming INTERNeX events’ blog post this afternoon. Also, we are going to the Rocky Mountains during the Easter weekend! Read about the details here and join our Facebook event.

I hope every one had a lovely weekend; if you would like to share your stories of the weekend then read our ‘How was your weekend’ blog post and leave a comment.
