Alina’s First Pub Night

My very first Pub Night with the INTERNeX family!

Yesterday was my first time at Pub Night and I still can’t believe how many of you INTERNeXers were there. First of all, I want to thank you for such a warm welcome! Obviously I didn’t get the chance to talk to everyone, but I’m pretty sure I will get to know all of you shortly and I can’t wait! When I tried to take a group picture, I realized I had to take two, from each end of the table, because I couldn’t get everyone into one. 😀

So last night we went to the Beaver. It’s a really nice Pub on Granville Street, which I was told is THE street downtown to go out. And actually I was pretty impressed by how much was going on there on a Wednesday night, because where I come from it’s not common that a street is still so crowded late on a weekday. We started our evening with some food and drinks and because we became more and more people over time the waitresses had to add another table again and again.

Later at night we played bingo. I was really excited because it was a music bingo and I haven’t played it before and some of you couldn’t even wait for it to start. It was so much fun even though I didn’t even know most of the titles of the songs but others did and then we just helped each other. Great team work guys! Three of us even won a price. They got a pitcher and a shot for free. Lucky you! I definitely want to come back to the Beaver because I really want to win too. 🙂

After that a part of the group continued their night and went somewhere else afterwards, but others just headed home since they had to get up early this morning.
So a couple of us could take the same skytrain back home and this ride was a little adventure for itself. We were standing there and all of a sudden the train made an emergency stop. It was actually fun because we fell onto each other kind of like dominos. And even the door opened a little, but fortunately nothing happened and we just stopped for about a minute and then we could continue our ride. We just didn’t expect it at all. 😀
All in all I had a really fun night and I’m even more looking forward to the other Pub Nights and of course our trips on the weekends.
Furthermore, I can’t wait to get to know all of you more and spend lots of time with you guys!

So have a great day and see you soon!

Cheers,

– Alina

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☺

PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamplighter

“Bourbon Bingo!” is the motto of a Wednesday night at the Lamplighter. It definitely is the place to be. So, we decided that it was this weeks’ venue for the PuB NiGHT.
Bingo always promises a fun time and I can say we did,42944330991_890e2e4eb3_n even though no one from our group won anything. ☹

The music, even though it was quite retro, was very nice. Everybody could sing along and we really enjoyed the songs. As most of you know, I am just here since a few weeks now. So, it was my first time at The Lamplighter. I can tell you: You miss out on something if you never joined Wednesday’s Bingo night there.

Among us were some old faces, but we were also happy to see some new candidates. Unfortunately, it was not just time for “Hi’s,” but for some “Bye’s” as well. Three of our candidates had their last PuB NiGHT yesterday. 😦 So, flags with the red maple-leaf made their way through our group and a lot of signing was done.

philip-flag-pub-night-2018.jpgWhile we were chatting about all different kinds of topics (yes, the most important one is still the FIFA World Cup), our attention was taken over by the Weather Girls. To be clear: It was not them in person, but rather their song “It’s raining men”. This song got a bunch of guys on the table next to us going crazy and totally lose their shi(r)t. They were dancing and chanting along. They sort of felt the song more than anybody before – well, it at least sounded like that

I hope you had an awesome evening with us. I surely did!

Thanks for coming and make sure you join us on Saturday to celebrate Swedish Midsommar!

PuB NiGHT Review: Beaver Bar

One more and we’ll have Bingo. We just need Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song and we’ll be saved from the bad luck we faced tonight. The next song starts to play… ♪ “We come from the land of ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow” ♪ Wait… That’s the song! BINGO!

40674780400_90cdc6f611_nPuB NiGHT at the Beaver Bar meant it was time for Bingo again! Dauber in hand, everyone was ready to play at 9pm sharp. First round: normal Bingo. Fun, but of course less exciting than singing along to songs. A few rounds of normal Bingo and non-existing wins later, it was time for music Bingo. We sang along to many great throwback songs, including Beyoncé’s Halo, Paramore’s crushcrushcrush and The Jackson 5’s I Want You Back. During this round we had more luck. Felix had Bingo and won a pitcher of beer! Congrats Felix!

When the Bingo ended, it was time to get back to our conversations. You know, about tasting different kinds of chocolate at work and spotting bears in the forest. Just the regular. Most of us went home around 12:30am, others still had energy to release and went to the karaoke bar.

I had a great evening with you all! See you this Sunday at the Trampoline Park!

PuB NiGHT Review: Beaver Bar

Three tables should be enough. Ok, let’s take a fourth one. Still not enough. At the end of the night, the INTERNeX gang needed seven tables in total to fit everyone who stepped by at our PuB NiGHT. A new record of this year, pretty cool!

28002828218_49da32e5ee_nThe night started off with some drinks. Our waitress just kept running with pitchers of beers and cocktails for all new people arriving. Soon everybody made themselves feel at home and waited more or less patiently (Germans like to follow the official time schedule 😉 ) for the start of the activity of the night: Bingo! Meanwhile, the well-known Bingo host recognized our group and we got our papers and daubers. One round of normal bingo and we already had a winner in our group! Congrats, Anna!

Special at the Beaver Bar is the famous music bingo. A song is played and you have to mark the singer and song title on your paper. Quite tough sometimes, but since team work is dream work, we managed. Also here we were lucky: Toni was the second winner of our group! Two rounds of music bingo later, it was time to head home. I really enjoyed this busy night and I hope you did too.

See you on Saturday early in the morning for our great trip to Squamish. In the meantime, go out and enjoy the sun!
