How was your weekend?

I can imagine everybody is sitting in front of the computer, refreshing the wordpress page from INTERNeX and hoping for the new ‘How was your weekend’ blog post. Good news. Here it is. So sit back and enjoy my adventures of this weekend.

It all started Friday after work when I went to Steamworks to eat diner. After the nice guy who was sitting next to me paid my food, I went to Nuba in Yaletown where I met some other candidates. We went to Granville where half of the group wanted to eat something first, the other half including me went to Donnellans as the beginning of the pub-crawl. After the group was complete again, we wanted to go to the next pub. But instead of going to the next pub, we ran into a lady who gave us free tickets for Studio, a club on Granville. That meant the pub-crawl was over and the club night began. After a few hours, we decided to check out Cambiebar. Instead of Cambiebar, we ended up in the Metropole. Not singing a song, because there was no karaoke this night.

The next day it was time to go to the Richmond Night Market. When we arrived, we saw a big line in front of the entrance. But luckily a lady came to us and sold us a $25 dollar ticket to skip the line. Inside we had so many choices for food it was hard to decide what to eat. After our meals we checked out the other non-food area and the fair. We decided to end the day in the Bourbon where we enjoyed our cheap-happy-hour drinks.

Sunday some people wanted to jump at the trampoline park. I doubted to go, but because it was raining and I was very tired, I decided to stay home today and watch a movie instead. It was a very relaxing Sunday.

Hope you all had a good weekend as well and hope to see everybody Wednesday at PuB NiGHT.

It’s taking place in the York Theatre.

What to do on the weekend

It’s almost weekend! The weather is supposed to be amazing and there are fun things to do. Here’s some inspiration to get you started!

On Saturday we will go to the TD Vancouver Jazz Festival. The festival lasts for two weeks and there are events all around town. Fora lot of the events you do need tickets, but on Saturday there will be free concerts on Robson & Georgia. We will meet in front of the London Drugs on Georgia Street at 12 PM.

Another event that’s happening this weekend is the Dragon Boat Festival. This will take place on Saturday and Sunday with various locations all around False Creek. There will be boat races and free concerts.

On Sunday you can go to Greek day on Broadway. This is a street festival on Broadway from MacDonald to Blenheim with food and entertainment.

Or if you would rather take it easy you could always just go to one of the many beaches around Vancouver. You can go to English Bay, Second Beach, Third Beach, Sunset Beach, Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks or Wreck Beach if you don’t mind the optional clothing.

Just like every weekend this summer there’s the Richmond Night Market, Summer Illumination Night market and several Farmers markets on Saturday and Sunday.

I hope to see you all tomorrow at the Jazz Festival!

What to do on the weekend

Only a few more hours till the weekend! The weather on Saturday isn’t going to be that good, but Sunday should be a little better.

On Sunday the INTERNeX gang will be going to Granville Island. There is a public market with lots of food, so make sure you come with an empty stomach! There are also a lot of cute little shops.

However, if that’s not enough food for you, you can always go to the Surrey Greek Food Festival. This is a community festival whit a lot of Greek food. You can go on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there is no admission fee.

Another option is going to Commercial Drive on Sunday for Italian Day on the Drive, this street festival celebrates Italy. And while you’re on Commercial Drive you should do a little pub crawl through all the micro breweries that you can find there. At the micro breweries you can get a couple of tasters for a few dollars.

If you would rather do something relaxing but cheap, you can go to the family favourites movies at Cineplex for $2.99. At 11 AM on Saturday they will show A Dogs Purpose at select theatres.

Like every weekend there are a lot of farmers markets. On Friday night there is the Richmond Night Market and the Illumination Summer Night Market. On Saturday you can go to markets in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Fort Langley, Maple Ridge, Trout Lake and Squamish. And on Sunday you can go to Ambleside, Coquitlam, Kitsilano, Ladner, White Rock and Whistler.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you at PuB NiGHT!

Experience IT Review – Richmond Night Market

Last weekend we went to the Richmond Night Market! It was so much fun with all of you! Thank you for coming!

The Richmond Night Market is the biggest night market in North America and it has over 500 food choices from around the world. There are also live performances, over 200 retail stalls and carnival games. It is also really close to the Bridgeport skytrain station, which makes it easy to access the market.

18983320_10158688375850231_1698533783_n.jpgWe all met at the skytrain station and walked to the market together. When we got there we had two options. The first one was to stand in line for 45 minutes and the second one was to get one ticket for 7 people and then we could skip the line. We were with 10 people so we had to get 4 more random people from the crowd to get 2 of them. This worked after asking a few people, so we luckily did not have to wait in line.

When we finally got inside we started walking to the food stands as everyone got a little hungry. There was so much choice and everybody ate something and some even tried some special treats, like deep fried mars bars, Doritos deep fried mozzarella sticks and drinks in lightbulbs as glasses. There was a lot of food that you always see on Facebook or Instagram, which was also really cool to see. After eating lots of food we strolled around the retail stands and the carnival games. It was so much fun to see people play the games and some of us tried out the mechanical bull.

I had lots of fun with you guys! I hope to see you guys on PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

Thank god it’s Friday! Which means it is almost weekend and weekend is always good, especially with the following things coming up:

Tonight INTERNeX will go to the Richmond Night Market close to Bridgeport Srichmondnightmarket1tation. This is the biggest night market in North America and it has over 500 food choices from all around the world, so you can definitely fill your tummies here! There are also live performances, over two hundred retail stalls and several games, so if you have nothing planned yet for tonight, you are welcome to join us.

Unfortunately we don’t have as great weather as last weekend, so I came up with some ideas for you to do this weekend where you don’t really need to stroll in the rain for or is still okay to do with an umbrella.

The Champions League Final is tomorrow and the Manchester Pub is broadcasting it! The duel starts at 11.45 AM Vancouver time, so if you are a real soccer fan and want to see the match between Juventus and Real Madrid go to the Manchester Pub on 1941 West Broadway. Besides this match, the Vancouver Whitecaps are also playing, so if you want to enjoy a more local match, definitely check this one out!

Besides the Richmond Night Market there are some other markets this weekend as well. The Eastside Flea is happening again this weekend, which is worth visiting. On Sunday there is the StreetFood Vancouver Festival at 88 Pacific Blvd. Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival and Memory Laine Events host the event. It has 22 Vancouver Food Trucks, an artisan market, live music and more entertainment for the entire family. And the good thing about this market is that there is no entrance fee.

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you and I hope to see you tonight in Richmond!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Malone’s

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was great again! We were with such a big group, thank you all so much for coming!

Malone’s is a combination of a social lounge and a taphouse, where you can eat, drink and play pool. On Wednesdays you get a discount on wine and whiskeys. The food is also really good!

18813338_10155348718102103_844142440062610732_n.jpgWe first had two tables, but after a while so many showed that we also took the other table next to us. It was really great to talk with you guys about the camping trip and for some their USA trip. It is always nice to hear so many great stories about your time here in Vancouver and Canada. As it was one of my last PuB NiGHTs I got kind of sad that I have to say ‘see you later’ to all of you so soon, I love our PuB NiGHTs and events together!

I hope to see all of you again tomorrow at the Richmond Night Market!
