What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday so… cheers to the weekend! I don’t know about your Friday night plans, but mine are pretty cool if I may say so myself. What I’m doing? Well, I’m going to the Rogers Arena to see Harry Styles Live on Tour. I bought my tickets about a year ago, so it is safe to say I am very excited about it. (There are still a few tickets left, in case you’re interested). But before my excitement takes over, let me tell you about the events happening in Vancouver this weekend.

According to the weather forecast, it will be rainy this Saturday. However, the temperature will be around 21 degrees, so as long as you have an umbrella, you should be good to go. Now the weather issue is solved, we are left with just one more: what to do? But don’t you worry, I got you!

Carnaval del Sol, the largest Latin American festival in the Pacific Northwest, is taking place in Vancouver this weekend. On Saturday as well as Sunday, visitors can enjoy live music, Native Canadian and Latin American art, traditional folk dances, cooking lessons and a fashion show. All with the purpose of celebrating Latin America! If you enjoy learning more about other cultures and partying, this is THE event for you. Entrance is only $2 by donation for adults. Tip: Buy a Super Pass for $10 so you can receive gifts, skip the line at e.g. the beer garden and… wait for it: you can win a trip for two to Latin America! The festival opens at 11am, closes at 10pm and it is located at Concord Pacific Place.

20872046193_b77294e20c_n.jpgIs the World Cup all you have been talking about the past couple of weeks? Well, then you might be interested in the next event I am about to mention. On Saturday evening, the Vancouver Whitecaps will play against Chicago Fire at BC Place. It starts at 7:30pm and lucky for you, there are still some tickets left! You can buy them here.

It’s the weekend of festivals! Besides the one I mentioned earlier, there is another one on Commercial Broadway. The Commercial Drive Car-Free Festival, to be exact. This festival commenced in 2005 and has taken place on a yearly basis ever since. 9317994916_5cd2675451_n It covers 15 blocks in the area and includes live music, community activities, local artisans and a wide variety of great food to choose from. Moreover, the message behind the festival will be discussed. It is opened from 12pm until 7pm and there is no entrance fee. FYI: TransLink will re-route the Commercial Drive bus this Sunday, in order for the festival area to be as accessible and car-free as possible.

I hope all of you will have a great weekend and I will see you next Wednesday at Malone’s for PuB NiGHT!

Dear ski and snowboard fans, April is just about to start which means that the winter sports season is nearly over… So, take the last chances to grab your skis or your snowboard and hit the slopes. Since a day on the mountain can be quite expensive, here are some tips and tricks to save some money.

cypress week 5

Before you take the gondola up the mountain, it is worth checking the website Liftopia.com. There is often a broad range of offers for discounted lift tickets, if you buy them in advance. Sometimes, there are even great discounts that include rentals already. Another website that has some good offers is Groupon.com. Currently, you can score a deal for rentals on Grouse Mountain, for example.

Mount Seymour is offering a special offer called ‘Carload Wednesday’. You can ski on Wednesday nights for only $99 per car. So, if five people fit in the car, you only pay less than $20 per person for the lift ticket. Hiring a car is not that expensive in Vancouver, so if you gather some people, it can be totally worth it! No panic for those without a driver’s license: you can check out the Facebook group ‘Seymour Mountain Rideshare’ where people are offering rides for a small fee.

If you want to head to Cypress Mountain, which is my personal favourite by the way, you can take a shuttle bus from downtown for only $20 (students) or $22 (adults) for a round trip. The bus takes you directly to the ski resort, very convenient!

A must-do trip for all skiing fans is of course the famous resort Blackcomb in Whistler. Here, it is worth it to buy a lift ticket beforehand online via their website whistlerblackcomb.com. You can save the most if you purchase the tickets more than a week in advance. So, plan ahead and score a good deal!

Last but not least, it is also worth it to check out shops that offer winter sports supply. At the end of the season, many clothes and skiing supplies are on discounted sale now. This is your chance to already get new gear for the next season!

There are many ski and snowboard fans in our INTERNeX crew, so why not team up and go on a day trip together? I hope that you can score some good deals and enjoy the beautiful mountains on your ski or snowboard!

See you at tonight’s PuB NiGHT at Malone’s!

Postcard show 

The Postcard show takes place at the Remington Gallery, which is in Gastown. The show will be a mix of original artwork from new and established artists.

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Hello everybody!

The most of the women we use shopping like part of a therapy to feel better! In some cases or just to enjoy it! But here in Vancouver is crazy expensive to say let´s go shopping without spending a lot of money!!

Sears is already known because you can find some bargain! But imagine that if they usually have discounts in their own articles imagine if they have sales because they will close the shop! There are lots of articles with an extra 50 % of discount so something that can cost originally 40 dollars, and in sales it usually cost 20 dollars, you can get it for just 10 dollars!

There are less and less clothes left but you can find something really interesting, with good quality and with really good price! But be aware the most of the clothes are not so fancy as you can imagine, but if you look and look and look more you will find a perfect bargain!

Sears is located in Pacific Centre Mall in Grandville Street! It´s huge and there are a lot of yellow poster where you can read they have to sell everything because they want to close it!

So girls, boys it’s the perfect occasion to give you a caprice without spending so much!

Cheers,

Irene

Smart Saver Vancouver (Boxing Day)

Boxing Day on the 26th of December, many people have a day off on this special day; many of them visit stores which starts their annual sales on Boxing Day. Stores open earlier and people wake up early to be one of the first in the store. If you are planning to buy electronics, then you definitely should buy that on Boxing day!

Other people watch sports on the television, many big sporting events are held on Boxing Day.  For example the International Ice Hockey Federation world junior hockey championships often start on December 26.

The reason why this day is called Boxing Day is because a long time ago in the United Kingdom, the lord paid employees who worked on his land with boxes of practical goods. He gave these boxes the day after Christmas Day. Later, employers gave their servants a gift of money or food in a small box on the day after Christmas Day. Nowadays some people in Canada still give presents to each other.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Cheers, Lydia
