PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Tap house

 

Another Wednesday, another PuB NiGHT! Besides it was my second PuB NiGHT with the INTERNeX gang and my first PuB NiGHT I had to organize. After some researche I decided to reserve the Beaver Tap House. I wasn´t there before but their Internet review sounded good.

At the end of the night I probably can say, it was a good choice. I think everybody had a great evening. 

After we managed that everybody had a good seat, we talked a lot about everything and everybody. I also met some new faces yesterday. 

Furthermore it is to mention, that a special of the Beaver Bar is the famous music bingo every Wednesday. A song is played and you have to mark the singer and song title on your paper. Quite tough sometimes, but with team work we managed. In the first round Lukas and another girl, not from us, screamed BINGO simultaneously. But unfortunately she got the free Beer pitcher… 

All in all the music bingo was really funny, and I am sure that someone of us will win the next time.

We left the Beaver Bar at about 11:30 pm, but some of us were not tired at this time yet. Because of that a part of the INTERNeX group went on to the Yale Saloon. At the Yale we were almost the only ones, which is why the DJ played the Tequila song especially for us. The dance floor was only occupied by INTERNEX people. It was pretty cool to dance together with 10 other guys in an empty Pub 😀

At the end of this blog post, I like to say that I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! Thanks for coming!

Now I´m really looking forward to the weekend.

Cause that’s when our great Whistler trip is coming up. I hope to see many of you there again. 

See you on Saturday☺

What to do on the weekend?

It’s Friday, meaning it’s the weekend. If you don’t have any plans yet, here are some ideas. I hope you’re hungry, because this weekend is a foodie’s dream.

North Vancouver’s Shipyards Night Market begins today, with some of Vancouver’s best food vendors. Just to give you an idea of the size, the free market has over 100 vendors, and you will also be able find 19 beer garden, as well as other entertainment. The market is open from 5pm to 10pm. In case you already have plans for tonight, don’t worry the market is open every Friday until 27 September. More infos at: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/north-vancouver-shipyards-night-market-dates-2019

And now for all the Germans and German fans: The “Prost Haus”, a Bavarian themed beer hall, just opened on the rooftop of 900 Granville street. There, you will be able to find authentic German food like Pretzels, Bratwurst and, of course, Beer. So if you’re feeling a bit homesick, go check it out.

In case you’re in the mood for a bit more Mediterranean food, specifically Greek, I got you covered. This weekend is the 41st Vancouver Greek food festival. Not only will you find lots of food there, but also music, entertainment and history. So if you want to experience Greek culture, this is your chance. The festival is at 4500 Arbutus St from Friday to Sunday.

After all that food you might want to consider some exercise. A group of us is going to the trampoline park in New Westminster on Sunday evening at 5:30. You are still welcome to join. Just sent me message on facebook, so I know who is coming. https://www.facebook.com/events/2258540541073418/

PuB NiGHT Review: The Relish

“Beer for $3!” – That was just one of the incentives for you to come to our PuB NiGHT yesterday at The Relish. Other motives to show up were meeting old and new faces, talking about past and present stories and of course our upcoming events, one of them being the Rockies Trip in the beginning of August (don’t forget to sign up 😉).37347243_1810162252410130_169073642464870400_n

The four of us were at The Relish quite early, so we saved a nice table outside. Betting on who will be the first person to show up, none of us had one of the “newcomers” in mind. But it was even better that Oliwer showed up first, this way we had the chance to get to talk to him and get to know him better.

So, we had the chance to welcome a new face in our round: Oliwer. He showed us his artistic talent and even decorated Nadine’s hand with an interesting drawing. Unfortunately, it was also time to say goodbye: Gus spent his last PuB NiGHT with us yesterday.

As usual the hours passed by very fast. We had a discussion on how to pronounce “scone” correctly: Does it rhyme with cone or gone? Well, there does not seem to be a real answer to that question, even in the UK the public opinion is polarized. Apparently, none of the two pronunciations are wrong or right.

After we finished our last glasses of beer and the waitress brought the bill, some of us decided to pay a visit to the Met, while the other half made their way home. Some songs and beers later, even the last ones decided to take the bus/train home and a fun evening came to an end.

I hope you had a nice evening as well and I am looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday for our trip to Deep Cove!

How was your weekend?

There’s no way to deny it: Today, it’s Monday. I’m back at work. Here I am, sitting at my desk, sipping my warm ginger tea and getting ready to write this blog post. The perk about Monday blog posts: I get to tell you all about my weekend! So, sit back and enjoy reading about what I did for the last few days.

It all started Thursday evening. At 7pm, our bus departed from the Pacific Central station. The destination: Portland! We left Vancouver, crossed the border, had a 1.5 hour stop in Seattle from where another bus brought us to the desired city. I’m not much of an in-the-bus-sleeper, so that was quite a sleepless night.

We arrived 30 minutes earlier than expected. At 5:30am, to be exact. We headed to the hotel straight away, where we enjoyed a good breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, orange juice… I could go on and on. It was soooo good! I was already looking forward to the upcoming 2 breakfasts. When we were done eating and our food coma overcame us, it was time to explore the city. First, we walked along the water at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Then, we headed to the Pioneer Courthouse Square. Let’s join a walking tour! It was called ‘Secrets of Portlandia’. Our tour guide Erik led us through the city for 2,5 hours. He told us about the history of Portland and how it got its name (by a coin toss, by the way). But he also showed us famous places and buildings, as well as the food truck ‘Stretch the Noodle’, which makes Chinese noodles freshly in front of you (absolutely tasty).

After checking in at the hotel and refreshing ourselves, we went for dinner at an Italian restaurant. Since the day was very long already, we went back to the hotel afterwards. But not to sleep already. We spent an easy evening together with lots of different card games.

At 10am on Saturday, it was time for Miri, Elisabeth, Angy and I to go to the Lan Su Chinese Garden. The rest of the Portland gang went to have a tour on the USS Blueback submarine. It rained quite a lot in the beginning of the day, but suddenly the sun decided to show her face. The whole garden was brought into a different spotlight. The pavilions, the bridges, the water, the plants… It was just wonderful to look at.

Have you ever heard of the Voodoo doughnuts? It’s what Portland is very famous for. Funny named and shaped doughnuts that are delicious and worth standing in line for 20 minutes (or more) for. It’s exactly what I did. And yes, they were so good! After munching doughnuts, we wanted to try the other thing Portland is famous for: Beer! A few of the 21+ aged candidates joined me to the Pints Brewhouse. We ordered the 10 beers they had on their menu. Some were awesome, but others will not make it on my ‘I want to drink that again’ list.

In the evening, some of us played mini-golf. It was not just normal mini-golf, but mini-golf in blacklight with a pirate and underwater theme. Exciting! I did not win, unfortunately, but it was fun, anyway! When we got back to the hotel, we did the same as the evening before: playing card games and talking and laughing with each other. Around 3am, it was bed time. The next day was not that special. Breakfast, check-out, driving back to Vancouver by bus. And still: an entire day passed by with that.

This trip was fun and great! I enjoyed having you all there! Let’s share some memories and stories this Wednesday during PuB NiGHT at Mahony & Sons!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Relish Pub

Another PuB NiGHT, in another pub, but with familiar faces. Yesterday, the INTERNeX candidates and the PR-team had a seat in the Relish Pub. For the first time since January, this pub was the place to be on a Wednesday evening.

And being in this pub was not the only first-timer of the night. It was the first PuB NiGHT for our new PR-team member Elisabeth, too. As well as for several candidates, who have only been here for a few weeks or even days so far. We were sitting at 3 different tables, because we were with so many people! This is also why I decided to switch my spot every now and then. It’s nice to talk to all of you and I enjoy listening to your stories about your life here in Vancouver.

But as sad as it is, there were also people that joined our PuB NiGHT for their last time. Linus and Lore are leaving Vancouver soon. Their time here with INTERNeX has come to an end, unfortunately. So, we had one, two or three (maybe even more) last beers together. We even signed a Canada flag with our names and personal messages that serves as a memory. We’ll miss you guys! Have a safe trip, I’m sure we’ll see each other again somewhere in this world!

I hope you all enjoyed the PuB NiGHT as well!

PuB NiGHT Review: Malone’s

It’s Thursday afternoon, I am sitting in the office, staring at my laptop and I am feeling tired. Tired on a Thursday afternoon? How is this even possible? Well, it can only be one thing: Last night was pub night.

We met at Malone’s Social Lounge and Tap House this time. At 8pm, we sat down at the table in this cozy and big pub. We looked at the food and beer menu, WOW – there are 38 taps you can choose from. And so, we ordered pizzas, chicken tenders and the special beer on Wednesday nights, the P49 Craft lager for $3.90– who can say no to such an offer?

Around 11:30pm, when the Malone’s was taking orders for the last round, we decided to switch locations. So, some of us went to the Bourbon. We entered the bar and… there were only 5 other people in the pub. Okay, so it was not busy at all, but this fact didn’t stop us from dancing, singing along to well known songs and playing pool.

I hope you all enjoyed it too and I see many of you tomorrow at 7am for our trip to the Rocky Mountains!
