What to Do on the Weekend?

How nice to have a long weekend ahead of us thanks to Family Day! 🙂

So you might be wondering how to spend your weekend and if there is something special going on. Of course there is…!

The Fan Expo from February 15 to 17, clearly is a good choice on the weekend for all pop-culture lovers. As one of British Columbia’s biggest events in that field, the Vancouver Convention Centre will be flooded with comic book fans, cosplay fanatics, video game enthusiasts or simply movie fans. Don’t miss the chance to get an autograph and/or photos with celebrities like Brendan Fraser and Christina Ricci, as well as don’t miss to check out the live entertainment and activities offered. Tickets are available online.

For all the culture lovers out there, there is also Black History Month Family Day going on at the Mackin House in Coquitlam. They celebrate African culture in Canada with a Family Day weekend event. Enjoy food, live performances, an interactive drum circle, crafts, and a presentation by the African Descent Society of BC on February 15 starting at 12 pm. As admission fee, an individual donation should be given.

And for the Oscars were just taking place in Los Angeles last Sunday, this weekend offers the best chance to catch up on all the remarkable and worthy movies that were awarded like e.g. the Korean first time winner of the “Best Film” category “Parasite” – a historic moment of itself. Manifold cinemas in and surrounding Vancouver offer screenings of this movie, e.g the Cineplex located in the International Village Mall.

While smaller businesses will likely be closed or running shortened hours, the bigger malls and stores like the Canadian superstore will remain open and give you the opportunity to still get some groceries in case your fridge looks sad after the weekend.

This being sad, it’s going to be a great long weekend – predictions look well, we should be able to catch some sunlight, too!! Have a magnificent time and hope to see you all for our next Pub Night at Malone’s, as always, on Wednesday at 7 PM!!

Cheers,

What to do on the weekend?

It is already Friday again, which means we will provide some tips for you on what to do on the weekend! Since we already experienced our weekly event at the Canucks Hockey game, you will need to make some plans by yourself for this weekend. With these tips we hope you will still get the best out of it!

We did not have the best weather last week, but maybe you already noticed the sun goes down later and later, which means… SPRING is coming! And when you say spring it is time for some flea markets. The Eastside Flea is starting of this weekend in the Ellis Building at 1024 Main Street. They have over 50 local vendors, food trucks, a live deejay, seasonal drink specials, pinball and many more. The Flea market will be held every other weekend and you can enjoy them on Friday from 6 to 10 pm and Saturday & Sunday from 11 to 5 pm.

For the fast deciders: on Saturday Insomnia is striking down in Vancouver at the Pacific Coliseum. With a killer line-up, including Hardwell and Laidback Luke, this will definitely be a party you wouldn’t forget. But if you want to be surprised and still want to have a good night out, it is also a great idea to join the Insomnia afterparty! These tickets are way cheaper and you will still get a great experience with surprising acts. You can find all the information at solidevents.ca.

But bare in mind that this Saturday night out would be a short ride, since the clocks are changing! Remember when I said spring? Well, spring is coming fast now since we will set the clocks one hour forward and enjoy longer daylight from now on.

There will be something riotheatregreat to do on Sunday as well. Remember the big failure of this years Oscars? Well where they definitely didn’t make a mistake was at the nomination for Oscars Best Picture “Lion”. Director Garth Davis’s film tells the story of an Australian man who finds his long-lost family in India with the help of Google Earth. You can watch this beautiful story at the Rio Theatre at 3.30 pm. This theatre was built in 1938 and has been fully restored with a state of the art digital projector, surround sound, comfortable brand new luxury seats and a huge stage for live events. A great catch for some Sunday afternoon chillings! You will find all the information at riotheatre.ca.

Besides all these activities, in March there is also the Vancouver International Dance Festival, which is definitely worth checking out. With a wide variety of dancers and styles and beautiful combinations like b-boys with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, this will definitely be a great activity for your weekend.

For the skiers and snowboarders here, the snow is still going strong so if you want to have fun on the mountain that is still possible! I will be at Cypress tomorrow and you are always welcome to join and hit some slopes!

Have a great weekend and I hope to see all of you again at PuB NiGHT this Wednesday.

INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

One more week till March?! I am totally excited for the upcoming months because there is just so much more for us to do and see here in Vancouver! And in case you’re tired of wondering, here are some of the awesome upcoming events that will be happening very soon 😉

Vancouver Aquarium!

What a great way to spend time this weekend by going to the Vancouver Aquarium with us! If you didn’t know, the Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit society that is passionate about conserving the aquatic life. This Saturday we will get to experience the Secret World of Sharks and Rays exhibition as well as so many other fascinating lives of underwater creatures! The Aquarium is great for any weather conditions and is located closely to one of the most beautiful places in Vancouver, Stanley Park. If you haven’t been out to the Aquarium yet and don’t know what to do this Saturday, spend the afternoon exploring with us!

When: Saturday March 2nd

Where: Vancouver Aquarium 845 Avison Way

Movie Night!

Since it was Oscars last night, how perfect would it be for us to go to the theaters? We should all just grab a popcorn and watch a fun movie! So join us for a movie night and experience what Vancouver cinema has to offer! A few days prior, we will take a majority vote on which movie we’d like to go watch. I may need help with this personally, because I haven’t been keeping up with recent movie trailers -uh oh!

When: Saturday March 9

For more updated information, keep an eye out on our Facebook page!

Trip to the Rocky Mountains!

If you were partying with us last Friday night, you may already know about this trip. But just in case you weren’t, we will be going to the Rocky Mountains during Easter Long Weekend with Westtrek tours! It’ll be so much fun as we get to visit places like Banff, Lake Louise, national parks, Johnston Canyon, hot springs, and so much more!!!

There will also be a Facebook event page for our trip so keep an eye out for that! If you have any questions or concerns about this trip, call or drop by at our office 🙂
