Smart Saver Vancouver

What could be more refreshing than a cold drink? Especially since the past few days it’s become warmer and warmer in Vancity. So how can we compensate this “intense” heat?

Just wait for the 11th of July. On this day, 7-eleven is giving out free Slurpees. This day is also understood as the birthday of 7-eleven. Quite clever, huh? 😉 Back to the Slurpee. You never heard of a Slurpee before? One more reason to go for it on the 11th of July. But for those that want to know before they go, I will give a short briefing: A Slurpee is basically really fine, crushed ice, mixed with a flavour of your choice. The range of flavours is big: from Coca-Cola to Mountain Dew and fruits like lime, grape, orange or banana. Mouth-watering, isn’t it? 😋 My advice: If you fall in love with the Slurpee, get a loyalty card and every 7th drink will be for free for you! So, go ahead and get slurping. 🥤

BUT, the Slurpee is not the only drink you can get for free the upcoming days. The 14th of July is Root Beer Day at A&W. Ever tried this non-alcoholic beer? To be honest, it does not really have anything in common with regular beer, except for the foam when freshly poured in a glass. It has an incomparable taste and is very refreshing. Go for it and give it a try. At A&W it is produced using all natural ingredients, so don’t worry, nothing artificial about this one! My advice: Sign up for coupons on the A&W website. With these coupons, you will get top-ups on your orders or a free side to your order. Who does not love free pancakes or an upgrade to sweet potato fries?

14044809449_059fb00c74_nAre all those sweet drinks not really for you? I do have an alternative. It also includes a drink (Bubble Tea or Thai Ice Tea) and a healthy Poké bowl. 🍲 And this for only $5. Where you can get this amazing offer? It’s at the Poké and Sushi Restaurant “Daddy’s Kitchen” (2586 Commercial Drive). That’s not even a minute walk from the Expo Line station Commercial-Broadway.

I hope you’ll have the time to check out some of the offers and maybe find your new favourite drink! 👍

See you tonight at the Dublin Calling Rooftop!

Great Day at the Barbecue Kick-Off!

Wow! It was great to see so many people come out for the barbecue on Saturday! I loved seeing new faces and hope everyone had a great time. Congratulations to Kim, who won two tickets to the Vancouver International Film Centre!

I also wanted to say thanks to Johan, who helped cook all the burgers, sausages and hot dogs for everyone! They were absolutely delicious! It was too bad the weather wasn’t nice, but I think everyone had fun playing poker and card games inside! The glow sticks in the dance room were a cool effect and fun to look at!

If you didn’t get the chance to make it out, there will be plenty more events and trips coming up, so keep an eye out for those. The next INTERNeX PuB NiGHT will be June 10, at the Blarney Stone in Gastown. More information about that can be found here.
