Review: PuB NiGHT at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village. It was great to see you all there. Thank you for joining us!

Mahony and Sons is a pub with three locations: Canada Place, UBC and Olympic village. They use a lot of wood in the pubs itself, which gives you an Irish feeling. However, at both Canada Place and Olympic village you can choose to sit outside too. Both locations have amazing views from their patio and are therefore definitely worth checking out. On Wednesdays wines are on special, which means that all bottles are discounted by 50%, so it is a perfect location for the wine fans among us.

18716442_10209597815964306_1927399038_nWe already went to Mahony and Sons at Canada Place before, so decided to go to Olympic village this time where we got a nice spot outside at the terrace. A lot of people were having their own bottles of wine, as we had to make good use of the wine special. As it was already the last PuB NiGHT for some of us, everybody took their books and soon a lot of people were writing. While everyone was writing, I had time to catch up with everyone about the long weekend and it was great hearing all these stories. Once it got dark, we all took our chance to make pictures of the great view of downtown.

I hope you all had a great time, because I certainly did! See you all at Jericho beach or on next week’s PuB NiGHT!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Charles Bar

Yesterdays Pub Night was at the Charles Bar in Gastown and we had a great night again! It is a more quiet bar then we are used to, but we still had a blast and we were happy to see you all again!

The Charles Bar is located in the famous Woodward’s building. It is a V-shaped pub with lots of choices in food and drinks. There are big TV screens around the whole pub, which makes it easy to watch sports. In the weekend it is pretty busy and it has local Vancouver DJs.

I18575359_1755589474456496_262144517_ot was a great night with lots of talking and some drinks. We had lots of fun hearing your travel stories. Unfortunately it was Nicholas’ last PuB NiGHT so we wrote some nice stories about him on his Canadian Flag. It is sad to see quite some people are leaving in May, but there are also quite some new people coming in and there are so many fun PuB NiGHTS coming up!

Thank you all for last night and hopefully see you guys in Stanley Park this weekend!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Pint

PuB NiGHT was great again! Thank you all for coming to the Pint.

The Pint is a pub in downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means that their wings are only $4. There are also lots of TV screens to watch sports like hockey and basketball.

18448016_1565436526813604_584222969_n.jpgThe night started of great with watching the Stanley Cup play offs on the TV screens in the pub. Edmonton Oilers unfortunately lost, but we still had fun watching the game. There was a great atmosphere in the pub because of everyone watching it. For some of the INTERNeX family it was their last PuB NiGHT, which was really sad. We wrote on Andreas’ flag and made a great group picture to remember the night!

After an amazing night at the Pint we decided to go to Andreas’ favourite place in town, the Met, to do karaoke! We did some great songs together like, ‘We’re all in this together’ from High School Musical and ‘Wannabe’ from the Spice Girls. It was great to sing with such a big group and a great ending of the night!

I had an amazing night and I hope you all did too!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Lamplighter

Yesterday we went to the Lamplighter for PuB NiGHT! Once again, so many people that showed up. Thank you all for coming!

18337202_10209426544842635_1581636809_nThe Lamplighter is a pub in Gastown. It is part of the Donelly group, which you immediately feel when you step into the pub. This also gave me a familiar feeling, as we have been going to pubs from the Donelly group a lot. Lamplighter might not be the most cheapest place for drinks, but the atmosphere is good for sure. The pub has a cocktail of the week. This week’s one was the Gin Tonic, which was $2 off. Besides that they have a lot of beers and ciders, so there is something for everyone.

There were several screens in the pub that showed us a game of the Stanley Cup: Edmonton Oilers vs. Anaheim Ducks. This meant that a lot of Canadians went to pubs to see the game. The Lamplighter was also very busy, but luckily we had our own spot in the corner of the pub. During the breaks the pub was playing “Bourbon Bingo”. You could get free sheets at the bar and could win bourbon shots, a $25 gift card and a beer. Almost everybody started to play bingo, as it was free anyway and we simply love bingo. One of our group won the bourbon shots and others were close to win the $25 gift card.

18336958_10208904603233327_1425945733_nAfter the bingo we ended in the Met. Everybody immediately started to write down songs that they wanted to sing. Obviously, we had to sing the INTERNeX song “We are all in this together” of High school musical too, because a night at the Met without an INTERNeX song does not exist. Others were daredevils and sang a song without the whole INTERNeX group. I am glad that I finally had my karaoke experience in Vancouver.

Overall, it was an amazing night. I hope to see you all this weekend at Lighthouse Park or at next PuB NiGHT!

Review: Kingsnight PuB NiGHT at the Bimini

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was amazing!! Thank you all so much for celebrating our Kingsnight with us, we had a great time!

18198084_10209369193888897_856724913_n.jpgAs the entire PR-team exists of Dutch people, we wanted to celebrate Kingsnight together with you. On Kingsday we celebrate our King’s birthday, but also celebrate being Dutch. It is the day when the whole Netherlands turns crazy (and orange) and it is therefore not strange that most people refer to “Dutch madness” when they are talking about Kingsday or Kingsnight. A lot of people go out on the night before Kingsday, as Kingsday is a national holiday, which means that people don’t have to deal with their hangover at work or at school.

The Bimini is a pub in Kitsilano and part of the Donelly Group. Every Wednesday it has a College Night with cheap prices on beers and a DJ. It also has pool tables, pinball and table football. Because of the College Night we thought it would be a great place to celebrate Kingsnight with some drinks and dances!

18198009_10208840573952635_1195962131_n.jpgIn the beginning of the night we started to just have a few drinks and talk with everyone. Some of you guys were dressed in orange, which was amazing! We also had the Dutch flag in face paint and it didn’t take long before almost everybody had a flag on their face. Around 10 the DJ started and we started dancing, like you should on Kingsnight.

Thank you all so much for coming! You guys made our night amazing and we celebrated it properly even when we were 8000 kilometres from the Netherlands!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Steamworks

A lot of you guys came to PuB NiGHT at Steamworks yesterday and it was amazing to share our stories from the Rockies trip. So thank you all for coming!

18053451_1717194874962623_795609837_o.jpgSteamworks is a really cool brewpub at Waterfront and they make a lot of beers themselves. I saw a lot of you trying them out and I’m curious how they tasted. The pub is much larger than you would think when you’re standing outside. They have a downstairs area too with different seating areas and pool tables. Definitely a place to come back to.

Everybody came in early, which was great. Some of us decided to start off with a hot chocolate and others tried some cool drinks. We spend most of our night catching up on what everybody did during their long Easter weekend and we told them what we did in the Rockies. You can read these stories on the blog.

We hope to see you at the Vancouver Riptide game!

Review: PuB NiGHT at TAPshack Burrard Bridge

It was a great PuB NiGHT yesterday at TAPshack! Thank you all for coming. I had an amazing night with everyone!

This time we went to TAPshack under the Burrard Bridge. They have happy hour every day from 8PM to closing time, when the beers, wines, some cocktails and snacks are cheaper! It is not a really big place, but it has a really good atmosphere. The view is also amazing! We could see Granville Island, the boats and the bridges. When it got darker it got even prettier because of all the lights.

17916583_10202947848212955_1894708213_o.jpgWe had two whole tables for our group and everyone moved around and had a talk with each other. Most of us are going on the Rockies trip this weekend, so this was definitely one of the big topics of the evening. Everyone was making plans for the trip and talking about how excited they are to go! This was really great to hear, because we are as excited as everybody else!

Have a great Easter Weekend and for everyone who is coming on the trip see you tomorrow morning!!
