What to do on the Weekend?

 

Oh sweet Friday – so glad you are honouring us with your presence.
And let me tell you guys, we have a wonderful weekend ahead of us. 
It almost seems too good to be true, but no rain predicted for the entire weekend, so go out and catch as much sun as possible.
There will truly be something for each and everyone of us to be found to keep us busy. 
hockey game.jpgStarting off with one of my personal highlights coming up on this very weekend. Sunday we are gonna watch the hockey game Canucks vs. Oilers! So to the lucky fellows, that managed to seal the deal on tickets with us – we’ll meet for pre-drinks and from there we’ll go to the Rogers Arena and surely see a fantastic game! I honestly cannot wait. Hope you are sharing my excitement, otherwise I’ll be overloading you with it on the day itself.  
But obviously the weekend not only includes the Sunday, but more days to go crazy. 
For the very sweet ones of us, I am very happy to announce a very spectacular event starting today. Candytown is opening it’s doors again! The heritage district of  Yaletown will be turned into a winter wonderland. Lights and Candy as far as you can see. This delicious event starts on Saturday, November 30 from 12pm to 7pm.
Another thing North America is very much known for are the fascinating Santa Claus Parades. Two of them will take place in Vancouver this very weekend.
Sunday, December 1, you will be able catch a look at the Santas right here in Downtown, starting at 12pm. At 5pm the second parade starts at the Cloverdale Town Centre in Surrey.  
If you are looking for a bit more romance, you might want to go to Stanley park, since Bright Nights just started a week ago.
During the entire holiday season, the Bright Nights Christmas Train and the Stanley Park Train Plaza will sparkle with three million twinkling light.
Doesn’t that just sound too cheesy (in a very good way) to be true?!
Christmas and romantic cheesiness just belong together, so consider it by making plans! 😉 
 
So far so good, 
I hope you are having a fantastic weekend! 
 
Cheers,

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

As this weekend the weather might not be as nice as in the past weekends, you might want to consider doing some indoor activities for once.
Olympia.jpg
On Sunday it’s time to go out with the INTERNeX crew once again! And this week, we’ll visit a place, representing one of the most outstanding events in Canada in the last years. The Olympic games in 2010.
Especially here in British Columbia people are very proud of hosting this special occasion and since we are living here it might be very interesting to gather some knowledge about it. Or do you already know who Miga, Quaschi and Sumi are?! No? Let me help you out here. Those are the three mascots of the 2010 games, everyone representing a special animal living in BC and therefore giving attention to those very special species. 
And just besides those general facts, I am pretty sure most of you haven’t taken part in any olympic games so far, no offence! So this is the best part about this weekends event! The Olympic Experience provides simulators of different sports, where you can actually try out how it feels to do Ski-jumping or even bobsleigh races and many more! Make sure to get your ticket before the time. The Link for the tickets is to be found in the regarding Facebook event. If you don’t have Facebook, feel free to reach out to us! 
Obviously there will be enough stuff to do on the rest of the weekend as well!
If you want to be very spontaneous you might still join Justin Timberlake concert today at the Rogers Arena. Tickets are still on sale and available for about $50.
For those of you, who already want to start their Christmas Shopping, might want to take a look at the Christmas Craft Fair happening on Saturday, November 16. Taking place at the South Arm Community Centre in Richmond. Especially since the INTERNeX Christmas Party is coming up, including a secret Santa, this might be a good shot to get your present sorted out already.
I hope you are having a great weekend and see you on Sunday!
Cheers,

What to do on the Weekend?

As the second week of November comes to an end, we are facing another long weekend. This means we are getting some more time to explore Vancouver at it’s fullest! 

As we’ve been lucky with the weather so far, we have to use any chance we get to go out and explore, before the rainy and cold days are starting any time soon.  

LynnCanyon.jpg

And therefore we are gonna go on a nice hike this Saturday.
The Lynn Canyon Park is one of the most beautiful places to be around Vancouver. And the best part: the suspension bridge is for free ;-). We’ll meet up in downtown and make our way up there together. Just to make sure we won’t leave without you, let us know if you’ll be joining (just one click on “going” on Facebook and you are sorted). This might be your last chance to actually go out before winter is finally here.
This is going to be great, so don’t miss out!  

If you are still looking for something to do on Sunday, there will be the Bear Creek Park Light Festival hosted in the same named Park in Surrey. Furthermore there is the Riley Park Farmers Market happening at the Nat Bailey Stadium on Ontario Street this weekend. If you want to do, what the locals do, this might be a good shot. 

And as I mentioned before, Monday is Remembrance Day. This is a very important and big day here in Canada. For this very special occasion you’ll find many ceremonies and parades in every part of Vancouver and beyond.  If you missed, what and why is happening on Remembrance Day, just check two blogposts below. 

With all this great activities, I am sure you’ll have an amazing weekend and a good start in the upcoming week.
And the good thing: Pub-Night Wednesday is never far away! 

I hope to see you on Saturday.
Have a fantastic weekend! 

Over and out,

What to do on the weekend?

Almost weekend!! There are lots of events this weekend in Vancouver!

First of all, some of us will go to the Vancouver Riptides to watch their first Frisbee game of the year, so it will be very busy.

There are also some other events this weekend. For example, tomorrow it is Earth Day. To celebrate this day there will be a number of events around town. Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 11.28.57 AM.pngThe two biggest ones are the Party for the Planet in Surrey and the Earth Day Parade in Vancouver. Party for the Planet is a family friendly event at the Surrey City Hall. It features environmental information booths, activities for children and lots of live entertainment. Around the second half of the afternoon there will be live music for older folks. The Earth Day Parade will start at 1 PM at the corner of Commercial Drive and Grandview Highway, after that it will go north and finishes at Grandview Park, where a small festival will take place until 5 PM.

On Sunday the Vancouver Sun Run will take place and starts at 9 AM. This is the largest 10 km race of Canada and also one of the most beautiful. It will start at the corner of Georgia and Burrard and it goes to Stanley Park, English Bay, Burrard Street Bridge, Cambie Bridge and to BC Place Stadium. The views include the mountains, ocean, beaches, skyscrapers and bridges.

I hope to see all of you this weekend!

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, which means we are going to give you some inspiration for what you can do this weekend to make the most of it!15136376048_b8fee42104_o

The INTERNeX gang is going to the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park on Sunday to do some sightseeing. It’s the highest point in Vancouver and therefore it gives you a beautiful view over the park, city and the mountains on the North Shore. If you want to join us, check out the event page for the meeting spot and time!

On Saturday the annual TEDxStanleyPark will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from 10:00 am till 6:00 pm. It is one of the largest TED conferences in the world and centres around finding optimistic solutions for humanity’s tough challenges. This year’s theme is about “inspiring brave actions.” If you like motivational speeches and gaining new insights this is definitely an event you should consider visiting.

On Saturday you also have the opportunity to visit Winter Farmers Markets. The Nat Bailey Winter Farmers market is located at the Nat Bailey Stadium on Ontario Street and the Royal City Winter Farmers Market is located in Tipperary Park in New Westminster.

img_1231It’s a pretty good weekend if you’re into arts. Coastal First Nations Dance Festival is celebrating their 10th anniversary. You can visit the festival the entire weekend at the UBC Museum of Anthropology and the tickets for the Festival Stage Performances include museum admission, so that’s a nice bonus. Another option is Festival du Bois, held at the Parc Mackin in Coquitlam. This festival celebrates Francophone and French Canadian culture with music, dance, traditional food, entertaining activities and much more. Lastly, there is the Chutzpah! Festival from February 16th to March 13th at the Norman Rothstein Theatre and other venues in and around Vancouver. The festival is put on by the Jewish Community and shows music, dance, comedy and theatre.

If you rather do something a bit more relaxed and indoors, you can always go and check out Metropolis at Metrotown. It’s the largest shopping centre of British Colombia and the third largest of Canada. There are 450 shops and services, so everybody should be able to find something there!

Have a good weekend and I hope to see you all on Sunday at the Queen Elizabeth Park!

What to do on the weekend

It’s Friday again! Time for a new what to do on the weekend blogpost. It’s going to be as sunny as last week, so time to get out and do something!

screen-shot-2017-02-24-at-11-46-19-amFirst of all, some of us are going to see the last game of the season of the Junior A Team Coquitlam Express. It will be a great game to watch, so we are really looking forward to it! If you still want to come, then send us a message before 3PM! After that you can always still book tickets yourself, but then there is no guarantee that you can sit next to us.

Another event tonight is the Grand Finale of the Battle of the Brush. It is a live painting competition in the Heritage Hall on Main Street. The finalists will start painting around 8:30PM, after that the audience can vote on the winner of the competition and the winner will be announced around 11:15PM. Sounds like a really cool event to join!

Farmers Markets are an amazing place to buy fresh vegetables and fruits and a lot of other things. There is one on Sunday in Hastings Park, which is in East Vancouver, so close to downtown. Another good option to go is the Farmers Market in the Nat Bailey Stadium. This one is on Saturday and is next to the Queen Elizabeth Park, so you could make a big day trip. Both markets open at 10AM and close around 2PM.

This weekend it is the last weekend of the Talking Stick Festival. It is a festival to explore aboriginal culture through their arts. They show this through fairs, theatre, dance, film, music and nightlife. It is an amazing event to get to know more about the aboriginal art and First Nation’s culture.

Screen Shot 2017-02-24 at 11.48.10 AM.pngAnother event that ends this weekend is the Flight of the Dragon at FlyOver Canada. So if you still want to fly over China and Canada for the price of one ticket, go there this weekend before it ends!

I am looking forward to see you tonight or on the next PuB NiGHT!
