How was your weekend?

The weekend is over already? I swear it was Monday like 5 seconds ago. Ok new week, let’s do this. But before I am ready for you, let’s look back to the weekend first.

26909292_1591413390947326_105795224_oFriday around weekend o’clock many people showed up at my place for some games. We played zombies, what do you meme, chug and bus driver. Before we realised it was already 11 pm, which means less games and more club. So we moved to Roxy and danced the night away.

Good morning afternoon, time to get up and go to the PNE. There we watched a lot of light sculptures during the Chinese Lantern Festival. We walked around for two hours, ate some food and watched a lot of performances. After the festival, we headed over to the bourbon for more games.

I hope your weekend was a good one too. Tell me all about it next PuB NiGHT at the Blarney Stone. See you there!

If you don’t like Halloween then you can also enjoy the Harrison Beer Festival on Friday or Saturday or Cirque du Soleil which is the whole weekend.

We as INTERNeX are going to Whistler this weekend for our monthly trip. Like you could have read in the blog post about the trip we will meet at 9:30 am in front of Burrard Station to start our amazing weekend!

This whole weekend there is the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE), which is Vancouver’s annual summer fair with amusement, rides, shows, vendor markets and live music. Each night there is a different band playing. A ticket for the fair will cost you $14 if you buy your tickets online otherwise it will be $17 at the gate. They also have a special After Dark Gate Pass which you can get after 9 pm which will cost you only $5. The fair takes place in Playland.

If you like creepier things then Saturday is the day you have to visit the Vancouver Zombie Walk. This is an informal parade of people in zombie costumes. All the participants meet at 3 pm outside the Vancouver Art Gallery and will start walking from Robson Street to English Bay at 4 pm.

On Sunday the Vancouver Canadians play a match against Boise Hawks, so if you like baseball you can check that out as well. We all hope you will have an amazing weekend and of course we hope to see you at the next PuB NiGHT

What to do on the weekend

It is finally Friday and it only takes a few more hours till we finally can enjoy the weekend. If you don’t have any plans for the weekend yet, then check out this blogpost for some inspiration!

36466811465_3540120658_oOn Sunday the INTERNeX gang is going to explore Stanley Park by bike. By doing this, we can cover more ground, which means that we will be able to see more of Stanley Park. Besides that you will finally experience Vancouver in the most Dutch way!

If you rather do sports, then the KitsFest is the place to be! This is a 3 day sports festival taking place in Kitsilano. You can do yoga, volleyball, water polo, basketball and many other sports. Besides that there is also a DJ playing music throughout the day. The festival starts today and will take place till Sunday.

You can also watch the great baseball team of Vancouver, the Vancouver Canadians. They will have a match against Everett Aquasox at the Nat Bailey Stadium. If you are not able to get a ticket anymore, then you can also watch the game in one of the sports bars in Vancouver.

This weekend is the opening weekend of PNE. The whole weekend you are able to get in for only $1.50 if you wear red or a Canadian maple leaf and arrive between 11 AM and 1 PM. Normally PNE is pretty expensive, so by going this weekend you will save quite some money. There are also shows, vendor markets and live music, so it is definitely worth checking out!

I hope to see you all at the Stanley Park bike ride!

What to do on the weekend

It is summer in Vancouver, which means that there is a lot going on. So it shouldn’t be too hard to find an activity that fits for you. Here are some suggestions on what you could do during this weekend.

19874651829_07161691ef_oOn Saturday the INTERNeX family is going to spend their day at Jericho Beach. First we will have a barbecue (bring your own food) and watch the fireworks at Celebration of Lights after. Celebration of Lights is a fireworks competition that is been held in July and August. It is seen as a must do if you are spending your summer in Vancouver.

If you would rather watch sports then you could watch the baseball game Vancouver Canadians vs. Tri-City Dust Devils on Saturday or Sunday. Before the actual game they will blow you away with fireworks too, so even though you are not going to the Celebration of Lights, you are still not missing out on the fireworks!

Vancouver would not exist without its food scene, so if you want to experience that then you should check out the Columbia Street Food Truck Fest. This is a street festival with around 100 food trucks that takes place in New WestMinister on Saturday. If you actually had enough food this month and would rather work out instead, then you could join the Night Nation Run Vancouver at Saturday. It is 5 km long run that starts at PNE in the evening.

On Sunday there are a few free concerts that you might want to check out! In North Vancouver you can listen to the Beatles tribute band The Day Trippers. Besides that you can also go to Burnaby for a free evening concert.

Have a great weekend and see you at Celebration of Lights event at Jericho beach (4pm Saturday) or next week’s PuB NiGHT!

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

I think I am slowly getting used to the weather in Vancouver. Just like my grandma always told me: There’s no bad weather, there’s just bad clothing. A proper rain coat, rubber boots and umbrella and you’re fully set to defy the rain! Don’t call me crazy but I jumped around in puddles last night and loved it – this must be a sign of me becoming a true Vancouverite. 🙂

Puddle jumping is not what I’m planning on doing all weekend though, so here’s what’s on in the city:

 

Get scared at the PNE Fright Nights

Fright Nights possesses Playland from October 17th-31st and features 6 fright houses, including the new house FEAR, 13 rides, The Monsters of Schlock and their horrifying comedy act plus other terrifying shows and attractions. This place will bring you face-to-face with your innermost nightmares, houses of horror will expose you to the creatures born of pure evil and many thrilling rides are included in the admission! My colleague recommended this to me yesterday on the way to work, sounded HORRIBLE…Buy cheaper tickets online and bypass the ticket booth.

Where? Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) 2901 East Hastings Street, take bus 135 or 16 from downtown

When? October 17th-31st 2012

How much? 1-day Admission passes from $28

 

Treat yourself at the Baker’s Market

If you have a “sweet tooth”, this is the place for you. Inspired by traditional farmers markets in Vancouver, this market is even better since it is indoors. You’ll find talented budding, professional or home bakers selling fresh artisanal breads, soft German pretzels, butter croissants, chocolate croissants, cupcakes, yummy cookies, hand made chocolates, brownies, Belgian Liege waffles,vegan cupcakes, gluten-free baked goods and much more! This sounds just delicious, right?! Mmmh! Visit their website.

Where? Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre, 7646 Prince Albert Street

When? Saturdays from Oct. 6 – Dec. 8, 2012; 11 am – 3 pm

 

Enjoy the BC Craft Beer Month

From October 1st to 31st, 2012, British Columbia will celebrate craft beer like only British Columbians can. With more than 50 breweries and brew pubs dedicated to the craft, this year’s event promises to be spectacular. For this weekend, Doolin’s Irish Pub is hosting a Beer Battle where four 4 local breweries compete to sell out their kegs to the pub for the month of November. Your ticket includes 4 pints of beer! Here’s the official website for you.

Where? Doolin’s Irish Pub, 654 Nelson Street at Granville

When? Friday, Oct 19th from 7pm

How much? $25 (incl. 4 pints of beer)

Have a great weekend everyone and let us know what you got up to!

Cheers
