As a UBC real estate professional I pride myself in being immersed within the community, from student culture to the support of local businesses and everything in between. Whether a seasoned UBC realty agent, a new resident to the area, or a family browsing listings for UBC condos in anticipation of joining the neighborhood in the near future, one of the best ways to integrate into the community is to come along and partake in one of the many events taking place at UBC.
From time to time I will use my UBC real estate blog as a platform to keep the public informed about events at UBC and this month I thought I'd provide a few varied recommendations. Check out one or more of these events in the area and be sure to keep an eye out for me, your UBC realtor, and say hi.
Opera Tea on the Stage - March 3, UBC Old Auditorium
The Old Auditorium at UBC is a fantastic place to take in the sweet sounds of arias and excerpts performed by the UBC Opera. Intermission is also a treat (literally) as patrons sip on teas and coffees, savory cakes and scrumptious refreshments while mingling with the other attendees.
Karaoke at the Gallery - March 6/7, Gallery Lounge, Student Union Building
This UBC realtor will more than likely be in attendance for Karaoke night at the Gallery Lounge but I won't likely be on stage (your eardrums will thank you). Everyone likes a good karaoke event and regardless if you are seated in the crowd or braving the stage a good time will be had by all.
UBC Business Career Expo 2013 - March 8, Henry Angus Building
While not exactly a casual pre-weekend affair the UBC Business Career Expo is a great event for both the career minded and those budding entrepreneur spirits looking to gain valuable experience in the corporate world. Who knows, perhaps this event could launch the next UBC real estate superstar?
UBC Poetry Slam - March 28 Simply French Cafe (3742 W 10th Ave)
I promised a varied event schedule that offers something for everyone and the Poetry Slam at the quaint Simply French Cafe down the West 10th Avenue hill from UBC provides just that. Join an eclectic group at this great little Parisian cafe and soak up the artisan atmosphere at the UBC Poetry Slam.
Davis Cup Tennis - April 5 to 7, Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre
Davis Cup by BNP Paribas is the largest annual international team competition in sport with 130 nations competing in 2013 (Source: Tennis Canada). 16 countries enter the Davis Cup competition to qualify for the World Group each year and this April, Team Canada will take on Italy right here at UBC. Our community is proud to host the event, the athletes, and everyone in attendance for this portion of the Davis Cup. Very exciting!
