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

fReAkY FrIGhT NiGhT!

Enter if you dare...

Mark your calendars for October 15th! Limited time to purchase tickets!!!

That night would be one of your most memorable, scary but amazing experiences.

You will celebrate one of Canada’s most cherished and beloved holidays – HALLOWEEN!

The event takes place at the Pacific National Exhibition.  PNE is a non-profit organization that hosts both the Fair as well as Playland during the summers.

For October, PNE is transforming its entire place into a Halloween-themed event.

We will go through 5 haunted houses and after being all shooken up, we will hop onto some of PNE’s most famous rides, such as the Wooden Roller Coaster, The Corkscrew, and Pirate Ship.

If haunted houses or rides are too much of an adrenaline-rush, you can visit some of the exhibits, such as the “History of Execution Display”.  There, you will get a look into the torture devices used since the beginning of time.  There will also be sights and sounds to stimulate your senses: a junkyard symphony filled with music created from everyday objects, and geometric designs set on fire by the Kinshara Fire Performers.

You really wouldn’t want to miss this action-packed night of spine-tingling, hair-raising fun!!!

DATE: October 15, 2010

TIME:   7p.m.

PRICE:   $28

For tickets or more information, please contact:




Get Your Freak On for October!

3D Haunted Clown House

As we all know, September is drawing to a close.  This puts an end to the anticipation for one of the most cherished, endearing holidays in Canada! I’ll spell it out for you (literally):


To celebrate this gory, creepy holiday, we will have events to bring us in touch with the dark side in all of us.

In addition to our regular pub nights (wednesday nights), the below are the events that will take place, with a brief synopsis of each (I will follow up with a more thorough blog on each closer to the date):

Fright Night at PNE

Do you have a fascination for heart-pounding, gut wrenching movies or experiences?

If so, you can put your courage to the test and see just how brave you can be in the face of flashing lights and scary people (and ghosts) scaring you from behind.

You will witness all the methods of torturous pain that can be inflicted on the human body.

For those who want to forego the spooky haunted houses, there is certainly other activities to satisfy your palette.  If you love rides, you will get your fair share of gravity defying roller coasters, pirate ships, etcetera.

Parade of Lost Souls

We will join the parade through the streets of a lavish display of fireworks intended to ward off evil, a crowd of people dancing around a drum, and choreographed acts.

It is basically a celebration of all those passed away, as well as a tribute to the Halloween holiday itself.
