Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s time for another great Smart Saver this Sunday. This time we picked out two stores where you can save a lot of money.

First of all we start with the Army and Navy Store on Cordova St. This store is one of the oldest in Vancouver and has been there for ages. The Army and Navy Store is not only a place to buy clothes and furniture, but it’s also worth a visit when you are searching for cheap food and drinks. You can get there a whole package of Chocolate Cockies for $1.50 or a cold drink for $1-2. The next time that you are in downtown make a short stop at this awesome place!


The next store is called Sport Junkies and it’s located on 102 West Broadway. At Sport Junkies you can get really cheap outdoor cloth and equipment. Also you can try to sell your winter jacket and all the other winter stuff you have there. Their have an amazing collection of running shoes, hiking shoes and much more. Check it out.


We hope you all had an awesome After Rockies Party and we will see you all on Wednesday for another fun PuB NiGHT.

How Was Your Weekend?

Hi people, I hope your weekend was as good as mine, because I had a great weekend! On Friday we went with some INTERNeXers to Malone’s to watch the Canucks play against the Chicago Hawks. We were in the bar already 2 hours before the game to make sure we had a spot to sit, however when we walked into the bar it was already packed!! Luckily we still got a spot at the bar in front of the big screen, so we could watch the game. It was an exciting game and OF COURSE the Canucks won with 4-3!! After the game, some of us went to a club and others went to another pub to celebrate the victory!!

On Saturday Elvera, Roy and I went to the Holland Store in New West Minister. We have all been here for quite a while now and now we start to miss the real typical Dutch food! In this store you can buy almost everything they sell in a normal Dutch supermarket, so Elvera, Roy and I were like kids in a candy store. We bought frikandellen (meat), ranja (squash), speculaas (cookies), Dutch tea, paprika flavored chips and more. So, for everyone who is Dutch or just loves Dutch food, you should really go there!

My weekend ended with a relaxing Sunday. I was just enjoying the weather and chilling in a quiet staffhouse, which is not really common if you live with 18 people ;).

What did you do in  your weekend? Tell us by leaving a comment! 🙂


INTERNeX PuB NiGHT @ The Cambie!

Oh yes, it’s time for another INTERNeX PuB NiGHT! This time, we’re heading over the Cambie Bar in Gastown!

The Cambie bar is part of the Cambie Hostel, which all began in 1887, when a new saloon on the bustling Cordova Street quickly established itself as a happening social centre for locals and travelers alike. When the Prohibition of the 1920’s was in full swing, bootleggers floated their forbidden wares through False Creek and delivered them straight to the Cambie storeroom through an extensive network of underground tunnels. The General Store & Bakery adjacent to the pub saw its share of excitement too, as a boxing ring where five cents would buy you hours of ringside entertainment. Although the hotel got a major facelift in 1997 to camouflage a century of drunken debauchery, the spirit of excitement and fun is still very much alive.
So join INTERNeX at the Cambie on Wednesday, July 7 at 300 Cambie Street in Gastown! 8 p.m. is our usual meeting time, so come around then! This time we’ll have a little trivia quiz so we can dish out some prizes. Make sure to be on time or miss out on some good stuff!
See you next week!
