What to do on the weekend?

The weekend is upon us and in case you don’t have any plans yet, here are some suggestions as to what you could do.

First off, the Raptors won the NBA finals yesterday. They are the first Canadian team to do so. To celebrate the historic event, how about you go out with some friends and have a few beers.

This evening you could also visit North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market, where you can find some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. There will be over a 100 vendors, so you have plenty to choose from. The market will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm, and there will be no admission fee. Check it out and enjoy some amazing food.

The INTERNeX gang is heading to Whistler on Saturday morning. On our way we will stop at some sights, and arrive in Whistler in the afternoon. We will stay overnight and won’t leave until Sunday afternoon. Thus leaving us enough time for some awesome activities such as zip lining, bungee jumping, hiking or taking a ride on the Peak2Peak gondola. For everybody who is joining, remember we are meeting on Saturday at 1114 Burnaby St at 8:30 am. It’s going to be an awesome trip.

On Saturday will be the Car Free Day in West End from 12 pm to 7 pm. You will be able to find community booths, food trucks, live entertainment and more. The event will be free and is being held on Denman Street between Robson and Davie Street. The same event will be happening on Sunday, but in bigger and in a different location. It will be on Main Street between Broadway and 30th. In general, I would advise to take cash to street fests as some booths and food trucks don’t take credit cards.

Just a little reminder, Sunday is Father’s day in Canada. So call your dad and tell him you love him and how important he is to you.

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the weather!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, meaning it’s the weekend. If you don’t have any plans yet, here are some ideas. I hope you’re hungry, because this weekend is a foodie’s dream.

North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market begins today, with some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. Just to give you an idea of the size, the free market has over 100 vendors, and you will also be able find 19 beer garden, as well as other entertainment. The market is open from 5pm to 10pm. In case you already have plans for tonight, don’t worry the market is open every Friday until 27 September. More infos at: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/north-vancouver-shipyards-night-market-dates-2019

And now for all the Germans and German fans: The “Prost Haus”, a Bavarian themed beer hall, just opened on the rooftop of 900 Granville street. There, you will be able to find authentic German food like Pretzels, Bratwurst and, of course, Beer. So if you’re feeling a bit homesick, go check it out.

In case you’re in the mood for a bit more Mediterranean food, specifically Greek, I got you covered. This weekend is the 41st Vancouver Greek food festival. Not only will you find lots of food there, but also music, entertainment and history. So if you want to experience Greek culture, this is your chance. The festival is at 4500 Arbutus St from Friday to Sunday.

After all that food you might want to consider some exercise. A group of us is going to the trampoline park in New Westminster on Sunday evening at 5:30. You are still welcome to join. Just sent me message on facebook, so I know who is coming. https://www.facebook.com/events/2258540541073418/

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.

Address: 12631 Vulcan Way, Richmond. From Bridgeport station free shuttle busses to the Market run every 15 minutes, all night.

 

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.

Smart Saver

It’s smart saver Sunday again. So time to safe some money.

The last North Vancouver Night Market this year is the best opportunity to safe some money. The Market takes place form 5 to 10 pm on Friday nights from May 2 to September 26.  So unfortunately next Friday is the last chance for a visit. The Market offers 15 food tracks, 100 vendors and a beer garden.  On the Shipbuilders Stage you can listen to live music until 10 pm and the admission to get in is totally free. Over 80 tents are filled with local products, showcasing BC’s artisans, bakers and farmers. The location of the market makes this the perfect destination to relax at the Pier, catch nice views over the city, eat and be entertained.
The North Vancouver Night Market is placed just east of the Lonsdale Quay Seabus terminal.

If you’re really really hungry, it’s time to go to the RIO. It’s a Brazilian Steak House and you can get there a real Brazilian BBQ with all you can eat for only $15. They offers a great variety of different kinds of meat, such as Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Pork and Fish. You can eat as much as you can. You can get the side dishes from a great buffet with salad, french fries and different other Brazilian delicacies, which you’re welcome to serve yourself as much as you please.
Rio is located Denman Street.

Hope all of you had a great weekend, enjoy the rest of your Sunday and safe some money.
