What to do on the weekend? Easter 2019

It’s Eastern and many of you are joining us for the annual Rockies trip. But for those, who can’t make it, there are other activities you can do in Vancouver this weekend.

fish mThe Vancouver Aquarium, Canada’s largest Aquarium, will offer an Easter scavenger hunt this weekend. During the hunt you can learn interesting and quirky facts about the 500,000 animals of the aquarium. Even better, you can win a prize when submitting your answers, gathered during the hunt, at the end. The scavenger hunt is offered from Friday to Monday. The ticket for an adult will cost $38 and $30 for a student.

Some of  you might have visited the Indian Vaisakhi celebration last weekend in Vancouver. If you liked it or missed it, you have the opportunity to go to another Vaisakhi celebration. This one will take place in Surrey on Saturday. The event will celebrate the New Year of the Sikh faith. With an expected 300,000 visitors, it will be one of the biggest Vaisakhi celebrations outside of India. There will be a parade, performances and Indian food. And the best part is, the event is free, as well as most of the food. The celebration will take place from approximately 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the parade starting at 12885 85th Avenue, at Surrey’s Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple.

In case you find yourself craving Pizza on Saturday, good news, Pizza Pizza offers cheese and pepperoni pizza for only $4.20 at all of their locations for the entire day.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

Newest member of the INTERNeX Team

Tomorrow is PuB NiGHT, and there will be a new girl joining you. Me. My name is Megan and I’m the new PR-Coordinator at INTERNeX. I will work alongside Jasmin the next few weeks and organize events, trips and the PuB NiGHTs, and of course inform you about them on Facebook and the INTERNeX blogMegan-03.

I guess, I should tell you a bit more about myself. I’m 24 years old and I’m from northern Germany, where I study International Management. Two years ago, I spent a semester abroad in Victoria, where I had the most amazing time and fell in love with the Canadian culture.
So when I saw the INTERNeX job posting for the PR internship in Vancouver, it was a no brainer for me to apply. It includes everything I like: meeting new people, adventures, and Canada.
Thus, you can imagine I was thrilled when I got the position. Getting to Canada wasn’t the easiest, but that is a story for another time. Now, I am here (…finally), and excited to see what the big city has to offer.

By the way, I am a foodie. So, if you are looking for somebody to go try new foods with, I’m your girl. Also, be prepared for some random dance sessions out of nowhere, paired with some clumsiness and maybe even some bad singing.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you tomorrow at Moose’s Down Under.

What to do on the weekend?

What to do on the weekend? Ready to for some exploring? I would dare to guess that the answer is yes, so here are some suggestions of what you should do this weekend.

The East Indian Vaisakhi Parade is in town this Saturday. And now you may wonder, “What is that?” Say no more, here are some facts about the event. The Vaisakhi Parade is one of Vancouver’s most interesting festivals, which celebrates the Punjabi New Year. And where is it going to happen? The parade starts from the Ross Street Temple at 8000 Ross Street just off Marine Drive in South Vancouver. The festival lasts approximately from 10 am to 4 pm.10141279593_02bcd4f4ec_o.jpg

So what’s there to see? Besides being Vancouver’s largest single-day festival of any kind and having around 300,000 people attending, you can also find multiple delicious treats all around the parade. And here comes the best part: it’s for free! You may want to try a curry lunch, ice cream, chips, soft drinks and so much more. Here is an event you don’t want to miss.

On Sunday it is time to turn our heads towards the Granville Island. You can find Lukas at Westbound W 4th Ave @ Fir St. at 11 am where the trip starts. From there you will go explore the amazing Granville Island which offers a great variety of things to do, such as shopping, arts & culture, food & drinks and of course the Public Market. There you can find fresh and delicious goods of all kind. Granville Island is definitely worth seeing. Hope you will enjoy your day there.

Seems like it is going to be a weekend full of eating? Well, there is nothing wrong with that ☺ Enjoy!

How was your weekend?

Yet another great weekend is behind us. I was glad to see so many of you guys joining our events during these past days. Let’s look more into the things we did with the INTERNeX gang.

The weekend kicked off with an awesome Game Night at our INTERNeX office. A lot of people showed up for the Game Night and it almost got crowded at the office. We played a lot of different games like Pictionary, Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity, to name some. The night started around 6pm and almost didn’t end. Finally around midnight we managed to put the games back in their places and continued the night to somewhere else. This time we decided to go to the Pint, which is located right across the street from the International Village Mall. It was pretty convenient location for us. There we continued the party on the dance floor for a couple of more hours.IMG_20190407_201957.jpg

We ended the weekend with an evening trying to escape some crazy Escape Rooms at Locked Canada. There were 18 of us in total participating. We were divided into three different groups for three different Escape Room themes. Two of our groups managed two escape and I guess one group is still trying to find their way out. The theme we did with my team was the scariest one and I can tell you that it sure was scary. After we escaped the other teams told us that they’ve heard us screaming every now and then. I think we might go to the Locked Canada again some time soon since everyone enjoyed this event so much.

This week’s PuB NiGHT will be @ The Yagger’s Downtown at 8pm, see ya there!

What to do on the weekend?

Most wanted time of the week is here and we have some plans made up for you guys. This weekend is a bit special one since we are organizing two different events. I hope everyone can find something they like out of this weekend ☺

A one must go event is happening already tonight. It is time to see who is the competitive one, who wants to win and who is a bad looser. It is time to test our friendships and see who has luck (or skills) in games tonight. So what time is it? It’s Game Night time of course! We will start the Game Night at the INTERNeX office around 6pm. If you can’t make it till then don’t worry, you can join whenever you feel like it. We will have a blast for sure and might continue the night somewhere after.

On Sunday we are doing something I’m super excited for. The INTERNeX gang is going to Escape Room! There is a huge group of us going and we are doing three different rooms. Lets see who gets out first (or if anyone). Some of the rooms are scarier than others and I chose to go to the scariest one where you actually start the game with your one hand handcuffed into the wall. I’d say scary and exciting. We’ll see how I feel about it after Sunday. For the Escape Room people: We will meet at the Locked Canada 1050 Kingsway at 6.45 pm. Please be on time since the rooms won’t wait.

Enjoy your weekend and hope to see many of you guys tonight!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Two Parrots

What a night. The Two Parrots, awesome INTERNeX gang, the Yale Saloon, pool and some line dancing; what else do you need to make a boring Wednesday night into a great party night? Nothing!dav

As mentioned above we started the night gathering up at the Two Parrots which is located at Granville. Once again a lot of people showed up and we were even having some struggles fitting our huge group to the tables reserved for us. This wasn’t really a problem for us since we are not afraid to squeeze in and make some room for more people. I think there were around 20 of us all together.

When the night was coming closer to midnight our group moved the party one block away to the Yale Saloon. This time there was a pretty big group of us still at the Yale. Sadly for us the legendary bull was not in use ☹ We still managed to find out other things to do. We were playing pool and at some point there was a line dancing course happening at the dance floor. For most of us it was the first time learning line dancing but I bet we will be pros in that in the end of the summer!

Once again it was nice to hang at the Yale since our group was basically the only one present. It almost felt like a private party. I feel like Yale is becoming a tradition for the INTERNeX gang on Wednesdays. We will see what happens. Although the night was awesome and everyone had fun it was time to say goodbye to Jesper since this pub night was his last one. We will miss you Jesper!

Tomorrow is Game Night time! Make sure to show up to the office at 6pm to join for some fun games ☺

How was your weekend?

I hope Monday has treated you well. At least the weather has been treating us very well through the whole weekend. Let’s do a little recap of what happened during these sunny days.

This weekend was a pretty chill one for me. On Friday we spent the night chilling with some friends. We made delicious dinner together and started the night of by playing some beer pong. We also checked this one veteran bar called The Legion where you can find pretty cheap drinks (just saying).

On Saturday I headed to White Rock to visit my friend. White Rock is located right next to the US border and it is pretty cool since you can literally see to the States while standing on a beach in Canada. Once again we enjoyed an amazing sunset at the beach. Yes I really am a big fan of sunsets.

Sunday it was time to gather up the INTERNeX gang and head out to play some Laser Tag! We played two rounds all together and I must say I did not expect it to be as sweaty as it was. It really was a work out. Especially in our first round when we had about 30 kids playing with us and running around like crazy. The second round was luckily a bit calmer since we had some adults playing with us. In the second round our gang was also divided into two different groups so we had the chance to compete against each other. Not mentioning who won and who didn’t but my team did play pretty well 😉

Big thanks to everyone who showed up. This week we have a lot of things coming up so make sure to stay tuned!

First things first, PuB NiGHT this Wednesday @ The Two Parrots!
