What to do on the weekend?

Friday, the 13th. This day is mostly associated with bad luck and unfortunate events. But HOW can a Friday be connoted so badly? I am just happy it is the weekend. Finally! 🎉🌞
But now that we arrived at the long-awaited best two days of the week the question “What to do on these sunny days?” is popping up.

So, what’s on this weekend?
Some of you might have already heard about it: The Vancouver Folk Music Festival. It 36299308392_e6dc6c5cdb_ntakes place the entire weekend and is a must-go. More than 40 artists from all over the world will perform in Jericho Beach Park on five different stages. Go ahead, get your friends together and enjoy some good music! 🎶

The music does not really catch you? Maybe a night a Playland is more your taste. Since a few weeks every Friday Playland opens its doors in the evening for 19+ only. You can enjoy all the rides and rollercoasters as at daytime but with just adults. Sounds like fun, eh? And don’t even worry about the price, it is even cheaper than a day pass. 🍻🎢

You don’t feel like spending too much money on activities? I can tell you that Saturday has something on offer for you: At the Roundhouse Community Centre the French National Holiday is celebrated from 10 in the morning until 10 in the night. July 14th, 9599513307_3e5da59ce2_nalso knows as Bastille Day, gives you the opportunity to experience the French culture a little better. Try French wine, cheese and pastries while listening to typical French music and tunes. 🧀🥐🥖
If you are not interested, the Fifth Annual Ultimate Car Show in Coquitlam might catch your attention a little more. From 10am to 3pm you can look at over 300 exhibits and watch awards given away in seven categories: Best Truck, Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Classic, Best Hot Rod, Best Muscle Car and BEST IN SHOW. 🚗

For Sunday morning I can advise you to go to a Pub to watch the Final of the World Cup. France and Croatia fought their way until the final and will compete on Sunday at 8am (PDT).
In case this is to early for you, you can sleep in and just spend a relaxing day at the beach. It’s supposed to get up to 27°C, so get your towels out, don’t forget sunscreen and enjoy this amazing weather! 🌞🏖️

I hope you have a great weekend. See you on Sunday for the Final or afterwards for the hike up Grouse Grind!

World cup FINAL @ Blarney Stone

The most exciting match of the world cup is coming up on sunday and of course we are watching the final together.

The game starts on sunday at 12pm. Germany will play against Argentina fighting for the world cup trophy. Both semi-finals were very exciting, in one way or another, and we can’t wait for the finals to start.

We will meet each other at 9am at the blarney stone, since they don’t take any reservations anymore and they will go on first come and first serve basis. We hope you will join us at 9am for a nice breakfast.

Please make sure to be on time since it will be hard to hold seats since many supports will come to cheer for Germany…or Argentina.

We hope to see you on Sunday and don’t forget to check out our event for Saturday.

PuB Night @ the Beach Review

Yesterday we had our PuB Night at the Sunset beach. 

We met at 6pm, however some of us joined later. Since it wasn’t as hot as the days before it was really nice when we arrived there, but it got a little cold after the sun was down.

We watched the nice sunset and talked about different trips we are thinking to do and gave each other tips about a lot of activities in Vancouver. Of course we discussed as well where we want to go for the last soccer match on sunday. So for everybody who wants to watch the match, we are definitely going somewhere together, but since most of the pubs don’t do reservations on this big day or want to charge us a $10 entrance fee we are still looking for one where we might get in for free.

We had a great time, enjoying the sun after work and we hope that the weather will stay like this, so we can have a great summer and lots of outside activities in and around Vancouver.

Soccer World Cup: Germany vs. Brazil

The world cup is getting more exciting from match to match. Now there are just four teams left in the competition for the world cup trophy. Tomorrow it is time for the first semi-final, Germany against Brazil at 1 pm. And of course we like to watch also this match together. The winner of this will be in the world cup final, so it will be a very exciting and important match, we are sure!

For this important match we decided to go to a place where we already have been to for a world cup match, we decided to watch the match at The Blarney Stone in Gastown on their 20 foot big screen. There won’t be an entrance fee but unfortunately there is a minimum of $10 per person which has to spend on food or drinks. During the match they will offer food and drinks, so everything should be prepared for an exciting match with hopefully the right score in the end.

Where?     The Blarney Stone @ 216 Carrall Street
When?       12:30 pm (match starts at 1 pm)

 

So let”s cheer and watch the match together!  Hope to see you at The Blarney Stone tomorrow!

Review: Soccer World Cup – Germany vs. Ghana

Last Saturday we met to watch the Soccer World Cup match Germany against Ghana, the second match of both teams in this world cup. So we all were at 11 am at The Pint, ordered some food and drinks to be ready for an exciting soccer match. While we waited for the kickoff we discussed about the world cup and about our bets for the match, everything was about soccer, which was really fun.

After the kickoff all of us followed the game very curious. It was a very nice atmosphere in The Pint. A lot of Germany-supporters and some support-chants during the game. Even when the match wasn’t that good from Germany. In the end it was 2-2, maybe some of was were a bit disappointed, but now it is up to the third match. We will let you know where we will meet us for this match in the next days!

 

After the match most of us decided to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach or with a bike ride around the Stanley Park. After we rented our bikes we followed the way into the Stanley Park to enjoy the sun and the amazing view when we biked along the Seawall. It is really fun and enjoyable, if you didn’t tried it before, you really should do it while you stay in Vancouver!

 

We hope you enjoyed your weekend and be ready for the upcoming week. Please remember that there won’t be a PuB NiGHT on Wednesday because of the PuB & Club NiGHT on Friday!
