July 25th, 2018 Posted by blog, Food + Drink, Things To Do, Vancouver No Comment yet

The team behind the Whistler Village Beer Festival and the Great Okanagan Beer Festival are finally bringing the brews and good times to the lower mainland! Grab your friends and head on down to the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre on August 11 for the Clover Valley Beer Festival presented by The Property Twins! With 40 breweries, local food trucks, and a sweet lineup of live music, we’re guaranteeing FOMO if you don’t have tickets.

Breweries from across BC, out of province, and across the border are invited to sample two brews of their choice. Get excited to enjoy some of your go-to’s and to try some new favourite lagers, IPA’s, ales, porters, saisons and sours! Not a beer fan? Don’t worry! There will be plenty of cider houses sampling their delicious (and gluten-free!) creations.

Listen to the live bands while you snack on food from Sammy J’s Grill and Bar, who are serving up gourmet grilled cheese; Mike’s Perfect Perogy’s, one of our personal favourites (is anything better than perogies?!); Urban Woodfired Pizza, with thin crust and fresh ingredients, it’s hard to beat this pizza; and Meat2Eat, who have everything from authentic mediterranean cuisine to hot dogs!  

In case you need another reason to come out on August 11th, proceeds from ticket sales will be going to Twins Cancer Fundraising, a charity created by a couple of rad guys (yes, they are identical twins) who have made it their mission to put an end to cancer.

Have You Been to Fringe Festival?

July 24th, 2018 Posted by blog, Edmonton, Things To Do No Comment yet

Every year in August, the largest theatre festival in North America takes place in Edmonton, Alberta. Created to showcase unique artists and to foster creativity through interaction with the audience, all artists are selected through a lottery to ensure there’s a wide range of ability and talent.

Back In 1947 in Edinburgh, Scotland, Fringe Festival began when eight theatre companies were denied access to an international festival and decided to set up on the outer fringe of the festival grounds. You can now find Fringe Festivals all over the world, with 23 in North America alone!

Not sure where to get started? Explore the program guide at the beginning of August to read descriptions on each of the performances.  If you’re feeling adventurous you can see which tickets are discounted day-of or choose a performance using their ‘randomizer’! You can watch over 1,600 performances at over 45 venues within Old Strathcona! Between the indoor plays, outdoor street shows, vendors, musicians, and beer gardens, you’re guaranteed to find something you love at Fringe.

For more information on the Fringe Festival, make sure you check out their website and read all of their FAQs. If you’re a First Time Fringer this year, GetintheLoop members receive $5 off their purchase.

Partner Spotlight: HydroFly Kelowna

June 18th, 2018 Posted by blog, Okanagan, Things To Do No Comment yet

We’re pretty confident that, at one point or another, everyone has wanted to be a superhero. What if we told you that your chance to rise up like Iron Man and zoom around the sky was just down the road at the Downtown Marina in Kelowna?

After coming to Canada in 2011, Flyboarding is gaining popularity as an extreme water sport. Powered by a hose that pumps water from a jetski, a flyboarder is strapped into boots and a small board, which allows them to rise out of the water and fly. Kind of like a superhero…

Needless to say, the GetintheLoop team was intrigued, so we decided to head out on the lake and try it out for ourselves!

Mike Prince, the owner of Hydrofly and a professional flyboarder himself, quickly suited us up with wetsuits, helmets, and life jackets, before we hopped into the boat and left the marina.

After a short lesson in the boat about how to get started and what to expect, we were in the lake. The water propelling the flyboarder from the lake shoots out of jets attached to the board below your feet. This water stream is controlled by the instructor on the jetski, so you never need to worry about having too little or too much power.

Within a few minutes, and on the second attempt, we were out of the water. Mike was just a few feet away the entire time, controlling the

 jetski and providing instructions. When you start to fall, the instructor lessens the power so you don’t shoot into the water (this was one of our biggest fears). 

By the end of our session we had the hang of it. We were able to rise out of the water, move forward through the air, and turn left and right. Overall, flyboarding was a lot easier than we expected! The trick is definitely to stay relaxed and not try too hard or force the movements.

 

Mike and his team were great throughout the entire experience. It was fun, exhilarating, and we never felt unsafe or out of control. It’s an activity people of all skill levels can master quickly.   

Want to try flyboarding yourself? We’re giving away one individual flyboarding experience, including a photo package, AND a tshirt! Check out our facebook post for your chance to win!
