What to do on the weekend?

The week is almost over and people are starting to get ready for the weekend. I hope you all had a great week and are ready for an awesome weekend as well. Got any plans for the weekend yet? No? There is a lot to do this weekend, so that also means there is a lot of choice for you!

First of all, the INTERNeX family is going to celebrate Chinese New Year at the Chinese New Year Parade this Sunday. 15965745_10154886634952103_8586645978562399909_n
However, if you do not have time to go to the parade, there are plenty of events left to attend as well. It already starts at the 28th of January with a cooking demonstration in Lonsdale Quay Market. After that you can also watch the traditional Eye-Dotting Ceremony at 2 pm or the Lion Dance after.

On Sunday you can also show your best moves during the VSO New Music Festival: On a Wire! You can enjoy an amazing electric music performance of Bramwell Tovey and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. If you love electric music, you should definitely check this out! The music festival takes place in Orpheum at 601 Smithe Street. It starts at 7.30 pm, so you can even plan other activities during the day. Please make sure to buy tickets beforehand to ensure a spot. Tickets cost $30 for an adult and if you still got a student card, you can get a ticket for only $22.50.

This weekend the event Cuisine & Confessions takes place in Vancouver Playhouse. The performance is a combination of a kitchen and circus. Make sure not to wear your nicest clothes, as their will be food throwing involved. Even though this performance is quite pricy, it is still worth your time. Prices range from $45 to $60.

Another event that you may have noticed this week is Street Food City. During Street Food City you can find over 25 food trucks in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The food trucks mostly offer local food for a pretty good price. This weekend will be your last chance to try local food at one of these food trucks. If you go there, eat as much as you can and tell your flatmates that you will not join dinner, as you will definitely leave the event with a full stomach. Time for a break? While enjoying your meal or taking a break, you can listen to some music.

I hope to see you on Sunday at the Chinese New Year Parade. If not, have a great weekend anyways and see you at PuB NiGHT!
