Pub-Night Review

Another Wednesday has come and gone and what a fun night it has been again to see everyone but also so many new faces at Pub Night! 

IMG_0328.jpgThis week we went to the Two Parrots. They had reserved a whole gallery by the windows for us and created a new sort of space for us – a circular table setting in which many of us started out with some great food and drinks. Having become a dark beer enthusiast lately, I tried a Stanley Park Brewery special which had the greatest taste – a combination of the typical dark beer flavour, stripped off the extreme bitterness some dark beers might have, in addition with a nice taste of sweetness. Lovely, especially in combination with the very Canadian dish of Poutine!

As the evening went by, it was great to see so many of our Newbies joining, getting introduced to the group and mingling with everyone – I actually heard that some of them ended up on a bull that night and were also properly introduced to the Yale tradition by some of our “senior” participants. All in all a good night with lots of drinks, food and lovely chats! ☺Please be reminded of our very important Pub Night
next week, which will lead us to the Cambie, which is not only Vancouver’s oldest bar, but also a historic setting for legendary Beer Pong tournaments. Next week, especially, the motto will be: All in, we can only win!!

Se y’all very soon, have a wonderful week! ☺

– Felicitas

Hello Monday!

Hello Monday, Hello INTERNeXer!
I am sorry, for being so awfully quiet these past days. Due to a personal reason, I had to step back for a few days.
However I am back on track now, so lets see what happened these past days. There was a lot going on, so here is a quick overview of the breaking news:

(While reading the following part, please imagine a deep, male voice, reading it to you in a overly dramatic way and a typical breaking news music in the back).

 

>>INTERNeX became very famous among the Chinese community in Vancouver; Vancouver didn’t know how to stop – we wanted snow, we got snow and catastrophically panicking INTERNeXer, what is going on?!  Read more to get all the juicy details 😉 
Starting off, with the new cultural extension we’ve currently reached in social media. Yes, as you might have seen. The weekly INTERNeX events reached an outstanding new level. 460 people responded to this weekends event of the Chinese News Years Celebration together with the INTERNeX gang! Apparently putting myself in the mouth of a Chinese dragon, is the secret to successful marketing on Social Media ;). So if you are planning on going this weekend, you better be there early. The McDonalds entrance of the International Mall might be incredibly packed :P.

Moving on to the incredible amount of snow, surprising Vancouver last week. If you got the chance to actually leave your house last Wednesday, you can count yourself to the lucky ones – or not, depending on your perspective. Walking through downtown, kinda brought up memories of the first episodes of The Walking Dead. No, there weren’t any zombies involved, no blood or any of that nasty stuff, it was more like we’ve already moved past that stage. Vancouvers Downtown was quieter and more peaceful than I have ever seen it before. Basically no cars, no busses and no people were on the streets and everything was covered in beautiful, calming white. And there was no end in sight! I absolutely loved it, but easy to say for someone who doesn’t depend on public transport right?!
I hope you got to enjoy the beautiful white as much as I did. And I am absolutely sure you did, as most of you got a “snow-day” anyways.

And of course, this post is also meant to calm down all the panicking INTERNeXer among you! I know I have been triggering your nerves extremely.
I have been challenging you and I have been testing your patience to the last bit! But now I finally got very good news for you people.
As I wasn’t in the office these past days I wasn’t able to put the information online concerning the upcoming Pub-Night. My deepest apologies for that, I know you have been waiting for this ever since the last Pub-Night was over and especially because some of you weren’t even able to join because of the snow!
Anyways, Pub-Night is not cancelled nor did I forget about it (how could I, it’s always been my priority :P).
This weeks Pub-Night will be at ‘The Two Parrots’ on Granville Street. We’ll meet there at 7pm. And the best part is, that all minors are more than welcome to join as well. So please don’t forget to bring your ID’s.
Have a wonderful week.
See you soon!
Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Isn’t it weird how the night from Wednesday to Thursday always feels so much shorter than any other weeknight?! 
IMG_5648.JPGAnyways even though I am bit tired, I had a pretty good night last night again! 🙂
We went to the La Casita, which doesn’t just sound Mexican, but actually took us on a little trip down to Mexico right away. The music, the decorations, the drinks – everything was just perfectly getting you in the right vibe. 
So after some fantastic food, we made our way through the margarita menu. So that even our Danish margarita queen found something new to experience ;P. 
But there is still one massive question that has been bothering me ever since and unfortunately I couldn’t find an answer last night … so when do I get sugar and when do I get salt on the edge of my margarita glass?? So if anyone could please get me out of this sinister hole of cluelessness, please leave me a message. IMG_5638.JPG
Anyways Pub-Night wouldn’t be Pub-Night, if we wouldn’t have moved on to a different location to continue the celebrations of togetherness. Out of the two big favourites, we chose to go to the Cambie this time. Sorry Yale – Saloon, but you will probably see us soon enough anyways.  
A very exhausting game of Pac-Man, brought me closer to nervous break down than I ever wanted to be. Maybe it’s not really who we play against (literally any game), maybe it’s the Cambie itself, that brings out the most competitive side in everyone :D. (Careful, this was an inside joke and might test your loyalty to this blog).
However, afterwards we moved on to the Dance Floor and since we’ve got it all to ourselves, “dancing like nobody watches you”, wasn’t a phrase anymore :D. 
And I won’t lie, we learned some incredible and unique dance moves to show off at the next club visit. Usually you get three types of people on the dane floor. Type 1 would be the “right-tip-left-tip” type, so more the classical “I like to dance, but I am not going wild tonight” kind of A1488CFB-1F64-47F7-B4C9-BA97CC3DF34C.JPGdancer. Type two, which is the “move-your-hips” type, clearly knowing what they are doing and actually looking good doing it, simply born with rhythm in their blood. And then you get the “getting-jealous-looks-because-their-dancing-looks-like-so-much-fun-but-you-get-funny-looks-for-doing-it” type of dancers. (Wow what a handy and short name, well done Nadja.. getting right to the point here!).  
So I think all of us just transformed into type number three and honestly I don’t think I can ever go back from there! 😀
Thank you guys for honouring me with your presence :D. 
See you next week! 
Cheers,

The Year has come to an End!

MerryXmasBanner[2703].png

I know it’s a bit late for this, but better now than never:
Thank you for such a great Christmas Party everyone. I’ll have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people showing up, but somehow, we still managed.  Extra big thank you to the ones, that brought homemade food to share with everyone, this has truly been my personal highlight. Also thank you for bringing such creative and cool gifts for the Secret Santa, I hope everyone got to take something nice home in the end. (You should have seen me decorating those Gingerbread men I got, it was as if I’d be the happiest kid in the world.)
Besides that, we had some pretty good Beer-pong games going on.
After a while we moved on to the Cambie, as a nice last joined Pub-visit for this year. Also, this was the night of many farewells. To those leaving this beautiful country in the upcoming days or maybe left already: It was a pleasure meeting you guys and you will be missed! I hope you are having a wonderful reunion with your family and friends and that you think back to the time here in Canada with a smile on your lips <3.
Thank you for this crazy, overwhelming, funny, adventurous 2019 you all. Looking back there was so much going on and every single one of you made it as special as it was.  And because of that (and because you just can’t live without new blogposts right :D?!), we got something great for you in the upcoming days. From tomorrow onwards we are going to have a little flashback through the last year. So be ready and take a minute or two to reminisce with us!
Don’t miss it.

But most important, INTERNeX obviously wishes you a very happy holiday and a fantastic start into the new year.

Love

– Nadja xx

PuB Night Review

What a fun (and late) night!!! I honestly wasn’t planning on having a big one but with the atmosphere of everyone enjoying theirselves it was hard to keep away from the drinks :). 

78929527_1024162374585864_6992190080529989632_n

I have been having many ‘firsts’ lately and I experiences what a night out at the Yale Saloon was like, and I loved it! It was too great to catch up with everyone again and talk about our week. The food went down a treat and was well needed for a big night of dancing and bull riding. It was so great that the +18 were able to join us for dinner and have a go at the line dance. It seems to be that the most wanted drink for the night was Jagerbombs, there were a few fireballs here and there but personally fireballs remind me of my second night in Canada (wasn’t a good one) hahaha. 

79443202_2887164531349430_3308263289196118016_n

After few more Jagerbombs and bull riding competitions we were then ready to move onto the Roxy where we enjoyed live music of some old favourite hits. While dancing I look into the distance and oh my, what did I see…… but a beautifully set up beer pong table, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing this table. It didn’t take long till we had taken over one whole half of the club with this intense beer pong game. As the night went on the live music forced us to the d-floor and the last of us danced and sung the night away. Before we knew it we were at Roxy Burgers at 2:30am reminiscing on our fun night and laughing over some burgers and fries. 

Thank-you everyone for such a great night, I LOVE YOU GUYS! I have been feeling a little homesick lately but you guys bring my mood back up and I appreciate you all ❤ 

Don’t forget >>

PuB Night Review

Wow, wow, wow. You guys are crazy! But I love it! It was my very first PuB Night and I was definatly not expecting the turn up we had. I was lovely meeting so many new faces and it makes me love Vancouver so much more knowing I get to spend my Wednesday nights with you!

IMG_5234.jpegThis PuB-Night started off to be a bit more classy than the usual PuB-Nights are. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, which is a restaurant and not a PuB, but you know … sometimes we do crazy stuff and break the rules ;-D!

Spread across two full tables we enjoyed a 3 course meal; entree, main and dessert along with some sneaky cocktails to wash it all down. The service was brilliant and were always asking if we needed more drinks (which is always necessary for PuB Night XD) The drinks were surprisingly cheap as we had Long Island ice tea on special and yummy banana mamas for only $6.

There was many discussion around the table about how late we were going to party till tonight as last Wednesday was quite late.

IMG_5252.jpgTime didn’t seem an issue as the night went on and we moved to The Cambie . It’s difficult to go home when the group vibes are too good. Beer Pong is always a great way to bring the group together and have a tournament. We were clearly having too much fun as other people around the bar wanted a turn and soon became friends with strangers. It was the last game, the finale and it was INTERNeX V.s Australians, sadly, they won but they gave the winning money to INTERNeX who turned the money into …… you guessed it, FIREBALL SHOTS. We thank those random Australians for their good sports.

The Cambie wasn’t the last stop, as the night went on we moved the party to Roxy where we shared more drinks and danced the night away. Overall it was a great first PuB Night and we thank those who came along to join the fun.

It was my first PuB Night and I couldn’t have summed it up any better. I love spending time with my INTERNeX group and you all made me feel so welcomed! I will be looking forward to many more crazy nights with you!

PuB-Night Review

What a fun night – again. I know I’ve been saying this pretty much every Wednesday now, but I am honestly having such a good time with you guys. Thank you! 

Last night we went to the Beaver again, the place where it all started – at least for me. And I honesty cannot believe it’s been almost two months since then!
One of the best things about the Beaver is also the fact that our 18 year old candidates are allowed to join as well. It’s always so nice to have everyone together!IMG_4828.jpg

So as always, we started the night with a few beers and some fireballs. And yes – of course I went for the nachos again!
And what would a Wednesday night at the Beaver be without music bingo? Considering the fact that we were such a big group, I was absolutely sure the victory will be INTERNeX’. Usually the luck always sticks with the newbies, and since we’ve got three this week, my hopes were pretty high to be honest.
But for some reason the luck was not on our side this time. Nobody got a single bingo .. what a disappointment. But of course our mood didn’t get harmed by this.
So after a few hours we got our stuff together and made our way to the Cambie. Always keeping in mind, that this was the more important match to win … after what happened a few weeks back (still bothering me btw).
But as we got there, no Beerpong atmosphere was to be found! Apparently nobody in there wanted to play a Beerpong tournament at this time, at least that’s what we’ve got told. Obviously this was not a reason for us to give up or even go home.
So after a few friendly chats with the bartenders, we got some cups and balls and since we were enough people to make 4 teams, we just started our own little tournament.
And as soon as we started, so many other people joined in and it just happen to turn out just as big as the usual Beerpong nights at the Cambie.
Anyways, not trying to show off here but the girl power, once again, proofed it’s strength and won the INTERNeX Beerpong tournament. I am so proud ladies, even tho we didn’t get to win the T-Shirts! 
I really hope that someones ego recovered by now :-D.
(I am really sorry for the quality of this picture…. my camera just isn’t really the best :-D)

Anyways I had a fantastic time and a short night!
Thanks again for such a fun PuB-Night, you guys are fantastic! 

So for those of you joining the hockey game – I am very excited to see you on Sunday.
And the rest I hope to see you at next weeks PuB-Night at the 131 Water Kitchen & Bar. 

Have a lovely Thursday! 

Cheers,
