What to do on the Weekend

TGIF! I cannot believe it’s already weekend again. The weeks are passing by so quickly, or is it just me?
Anyways, we do have one of my personal highlights lined up this weekend. This Saturday it will officially be okay to get ready for Christmas! Therefore we’ll visit the Vancouver Christmas Market this Saturday! To be frank, I haven’t been there before, but I am a huge fan of Christmas an of course Christmas markets .. so I am one-hundred-percent  ready for this. As long as I get some Christmas-music and a hot Gluhwein, I’ll be the happiest person anyways! Plus since, we will only meet at 4pm, this is a very hangover friendly time. So no excuses accepted!Christmasmarketinstared.png
If you already know, that you’ll be joining this fantastic event, please feel free to click on ‘going’ on Facebook, since I would like to know who will show up at the meeting point, so we won’t depart without you! If you are not ready for a big commitment like this, there is also an ‘Interested’ button ;-). 

If you just can’t get enough of Christmas, Vancouver won’t let you down on this, for example just next to Vancouver Christmas Market you also find the Vancouver largest indoor Christmas festival, or you may want to drive up to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see the beautiful lights up there. If you are more of a listening person, you may be interested in the Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage Concert, this Sunday in Vogue Theatre on Granville Street.
In case you want to see something different for a change, the Cirque du Soleil Luzia is still in town, which is supposed to be an amazing experience to make. Tickets are about $55 and still available!
I am very happy to see you all tomorrow. 
Have a fantastic weekend. 
Cheers,

What to do on the weekend ?

Hello boys and girls!

Another week is over, so we will check out what is going on in Vancouver this weekend. It seems that the weather will not be so good (Saturday cloudy/sunny, Sunday rain), but this would not stop our activities.  

All of you should know, that there is the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23. The huge three-day event will take place around the creek at Concord Pacific Place, Creekside, and of course, in the waters.  The city´s biggest Dragon Boat celebration will also feature live music, entertainment, food, shopping, family fun, and local artisans.  It is definitely worth a visit! There will be no entry fee.

In addition to that the International Jazz Festival 2019 takes place this weekend in Downtown Vancouver. If you are interested in Jazz music, you should come to the Robson Square. The festival lasts two days, namely on the 22nd and 23rd June. You don´t have to pay for a lot of concerts. On both days different musicians are going to perform between 12pm and 9pm. To see the exact entry-free concert program, look at the website www.vancouversbestplaces.com .

Finally I want to remind you of our INTERNeX event on Sunday. We have planned a Barbecue at the Spanish Banks Beach. If you look at the current weather report, there will be rain on Sunday. And a Barbecue in the rain is definitely not fun. 

Due to that we will go out for Burger eating all together. We reserved a table on Sunday, the 23rd June at the White Spot (405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1X4) at 6pm. 

We would be very happy if a lot of you come along for eating burgers with us. 48002939878_390603280c_o.jpeg

Those who have already paid for the BBQ can either pick up their money in the INTERNeX office or get it back at the dinner on Sunday.

 

Enjoy your weekend☺

Announcement: Brewery Crawl – East Van

Hands up if you love beer!

You may have noticed that Vancouverites love their beers and that Vancity is packed with small local breweries. So, what better way is there to get a little taste of the city than a BREWERY CRAWL?!

This Saturday, August 8, we will be taking you around the heart of East Van to visit some beer and spirit breweries, get an insight into their brewing processes and their history – but most importantly to try their very own specialties!

Here’s what we’ll do:

We will meet up at 15.00 at Powell Street and Commercial Drive. From here all breweries are easily reachable by foot. For now the plan is to visit six breweries, with an optional seventh.

The whole crawl will last until about 22.00, so, please, have a good lunch! (Eggs and bacon always work well before drinking 😀 (and also after))

What will it cost you? Prices for tasting vary, but you can expect most of them to range between 7 and 10 dollars per tasting. For your own convenience, please make sure to bring some cash.

For now, we are very excited and hope to see all you beer lovers on Saturday!

19+ only. Don’t forget to bring two pieces of ID!

Halloween Shopping

Since you hopefully all survived the plenty of turkey this weekend, it’s time to prepare you for a big Halloween party. Only three more weeks left till this amazing event.
So let’s get ready for Halloween by shopping some crazy and fancy Halloween costumes next Saturday, October 18.
At the BooLaLa you’ll be able to buy and also to rent costumes. So you don’t have to buy, if  you don’t have enough space in your luggage left. But if I think about it….. it would be pretty cool to wear the costume while arriving back home and to scare your family and friends. UHAHAHAHA…..
We’ll meet up at 3 pm in front of BooLaLa on Saturday. BooLaLa is located in North-Vancouver, only 11 minutes from the seabus station by foot. Click here for the map.
North-Vancouver is part of zone 2, but no worries at the weekend and on weekdays after 6:30 pm you’re also able to go there with a zone 1 ticket.
If you would like to have a look at the costumes BooLala offers, click here.
Join the event here.

Let’s get in a terrifying Halloween mood by shopping some costumes on Saturday.
Hope to see many of you there.

Review: Vancouver Canucks hockey evening

Last Saturday we had a great evening by watching a hockey game here in Vancouver. It was the last pre-season game this year and the Vancouver Canucks played against the Edmonton Oilers. After a few Minutes Vancouver did already the first goal and again after a few Minutes they did their second goal. So it seemed the game would be very one-sided and Vancouver would win for sure. But then the game turned and Edmonton did one goal as well by playing really not bad anymore. The game turned from one-sided into suspenseful and we followed the game passionately.
The atmosphere was great, so even ,if you don’t like hockey, it’s a lot of fun. During the breaks they threw Canucks-shirts into the crowd, filmed people, who were dancing or did other funny things and played good music. The audience did a la ola wave and cheered the Canucks on. Apart from the game there were so many things and people that entertained you…it was really not possible to get bored.
At the end the Canucks won by three goals to two…YIHAAAA!!

Since it was still early for a Saturday evening we went out to the Doolin’s Irish Pub to enjoy some more beers.
See more pictures of the evening here.

 

 

 

Hope all of you have a great start in this week and we see you on wednesday at the PuB Night.

Join us for a great movie evening next Saturday here.
