What to Do on the Weekend?

To keep you busy on the weekend, here are some fun things to do on the upcoming Saturday and Sunday:

Our weekly event is taking place on Saturday, October 5. We will escape the room at Locked on 1050 Kingsway  – Unit#200 (on the second floor).  Our mission is to prevent the world from being reigned by zombies – mutants created by a failed animal experiment and a virus spreading all over the city. We are the only human survivors and the search for the antidote is our goal. To find it, we have to make our way deep into the laboratory. We are the world’s last hope to prevent a catastrophe! Do not miss to join us on Saturday afternoon!

Another fun thing to do on the weekend is attending the Diwali Fest. From October 5 until November 3 numerous of these festivities take place in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver. Diwali celebrates East Indian culture and is celebrated around the world in fall. This weekend, the celebrations take place in downtown Surrey on Saturday, October 5. This is surely a great opportunity to experience another culture and Vancouver’s diversity.

For it is the Octoberfest season, I can also recommend the Octoberfest of the Alpenclub, which offers German food and beer, live music and dancing, held on October 4-5. The venue is a large and festively decorated beer hall-type room at 4875 Victoria Drive. Tickets can be bought on the Alpenclub’s website.

For those of you interested in movies, the Vancouver International Film Festival is still running until October 11 in cinemas across downtown. Check out the variety of new movies as well as the special events like Q&As, panel discussions and master classes.

I hope the mentioned activities and happenings give you lots of inspiration for the weekend. Hope to see y’all for the escape the room game on Saturday. It’s going to be great fun!! 🙂

What to Do on the Weekend?

Another workweek has passed and the weekend is close at hand. So what is there to do on the upcoming weekend?

One of the greatest events this fall starts on Thursday, September 26. It’s the International Vancouver Film Festival (VIFF). The VIFF presents the world’s best cinema fused with related talks and events. Over 320 films are on display in a variety of movie theatres throughout downtown and approximately 400 industry professionals from around the globe are hosted. We will watch a Canadian Premiere on Sunday, September 29. “Burning Cane” depicts the stories of two Southern African-American men and their struggles in daily life as a pastor and unemployed father. The movie, which was written, photographed, and directed by someone still in high school (Philip Youmans), is surely worth a visit. We will meet on 2:30 pm on Sunday in the Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas, in the shopping mall where also our office is located in.

Apart from the world of movies, we also have other ideas for you for the weekend: 

Another great festival taking place is the International Vancouver Flamenco Festival with pop-up but also theatre performances on Saturday and Sunday. Also on Sunday, September 28th, the Shipyards Festival is held in the Lower Lonsdale District on the North Shore. The one-day event includes free admission, multiple stages, beer gardens and lots of different food to be discovered. Not to forget, the location also offers stunning views of the Vancouver skyline. Most conveniently, you can go there by sea bus which itself is always a fun thing to do.

For those 19+, the Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival might also be an interesting event to attend. The festival takes place at the Hard Rock Casino featuring over 50 BC craft breweries, tasty appetizers and lots of interesting people to mingle with. In addition, it is Octoberfest time now all across the world. This weekend, on Saturday, one takes place at the Hastings Racecourse from 1 to 6 pm. You’ll find traditional fare, exciting horse races, live music, and of course, plenty of food and beer there.

Have a great weekend and see you at the movies on Sunday!! 🙂
