PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

BINGOOOOO! That is what we heard several times at The Beaver Bar yesterday night. What a great time we spent with you!

Yesterday’s pub was not that easy to find. The Beaver is not only a bar, but also a hostel full of international travellers. A huge table was already waiting for us on the gallery where we had a good view on the tables and the bar underneath us. We used the whole space on the gallery, because so many of you showed up! It was great to see old and new faces on our table. When all chairs were taken and everyone got their discounted drinks, it was time for a fun game: Bingo.

The first round was played as usual, crossing numbers off your paper as you hear them. After repeating numbers as 17 and 70 hundred times, we eventually got a winner in our round. Rebecka was the lucky one who shouted bingo as the first one! The night went on with a more challenging round: music bingo. A song was played and we had to cross the respective name on the paper. We took the chance during these rounds to prepare ourselves for the upcoming karaoke. Classic songs were loudly performed while sitting at the tables. Fun! And again, an INTERNeX winner: Pascal could pick up his price at the bar. Our voices were already warmed-up, so there was just one option where to go next: The Met, of course. Solos and duets were performed and even the entire INTERNeX crew gathered behind the microphones. It was only time to go home, when the lights switched on again. I had a great night and I hope you enjoyed it, too!

See you tomorrow in Kelowna or next Wednesday at The Lamplighter!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

“For how many people do you want to make a reservation?” “I think between 10 and 15 people” “Sure!” …And there we were with 20 people! Wauw! We are very happy to see that so many of you showed up. A big group means also big fun! And we definitely had a lot of fun! Thank you all for joining this pub night!

We had a lounge for ourselves. A couple minutes after eight the lounge was already filled with people. We got a shot from the pub, so cheers to that. But after, more people were still coming, so we moved to a bigger table upstairs. Then it was time for the real work: the bingo began! And yes, we got our first prize! Alina got a free shot (which she was unfortunately not allowed to drink). Then it was time for the music bingo. And yes, another prize! This time Hanna won a free pitcher of beer. After singing out loud to the classic sing alongs and a couple dance moves later, we decided that our voice was not loud enough yet. So we went to the karaoke bar to sing through a microphone this time. Because some people still didn’t want to go home yet, the party continued in the Bourbon. After ordering a free burger (haha) the night was over.

The Beaver bar is a nice cozy bar underneath an international hostel. Every night they organise a different activity. For example the bingo, but also trivia or a DJ night. And a new great deal every day. All the ingredients for the perfect pub night! Since everybody loved it, we definitely are coming back here! Thank you for joining us this night and I hope to see you at the Chinese lantern festival this Saturday.

Review: PuB NiGHT at The Lamplighter

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at the Lamplighter. It was great to see you all there, thank you all for coming!

The Lamplighter is part of the Donnelly Group. The pub organizes several events such as Pub trivia on Tuesdays and Bourbon Bingo on Wednesdays. It offers quite some beers and ciders. Besides that they also have a good selection of cocktails, with one on special every week.

Yesterday was Tess and Danielle’s last PuB NiGHT and we made sure that it was a good one. We started off with Bourbon bingo as it is one of our favourite things to do in Vancouver. As we were with a really big group and we had luck at our side, we won a lot of the rounds. Eventually it looked like it was us against the rest of the pub. In total we won 6 times, with one person winning 20 bourbon shots. After that we decided to go to The Met for some karaoke, because there is no last PuB NiGHT without karaoke! We sang our favourite song “We are all in this together” from High School Musical with the whole group. There were also people who were a bit more brave and sang some songs with just a few other people.

It was great that you all came to say goodbye to Tess and Danielle! See you in the Rockies or next week’s PuB NiGHT!

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!

PuB NiGHT Review

BOURBON BINGO!

Last night’s Pub Night at the Lamplighter turned out to be Bourbon Bingo night, cool surprise on our Wednesday night! We all got our sheets and a huge marker and while we were enjoying our Pale Ales and Witbiers the DJ explained the rules. Another surprise was the waiter who had four beer samples left from a Northern Vancouver brewery which we could try. Free is always a good thing, however this beer was no one’s favourite except for Maude’s haha.

Back to bingo; every round a different figure was required in order to win, once one would have that figure that person had to shout out loud ‘BOURBON BINGO’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the first round we only had to get one line in any of the three squares on our sheet to win beers for the whole group. Shame that non of us won, nevertheless the second round made up for that! Our new Swedish friend Rasmus won shots of Bourbon for the whole table by being the first one to have a cross on his sheet! Awesome! As for the next round we needed a full square on our sheet, the prize was a round of beers, a round of shots and a 25 dollar gift card.

Well, after that second round non of us won anymore, but it was good fun anyhow! It is quite nerve wrecking to almost have bingo and see someone else win instead.

Thanks for coming folks! Catch up soon!

Cheers,

Your PR-Team, Amiel & Natasja

Review: Pub Night @ The Lamplighter

Yesterday we had a great Pub Night at the Lamplighter.

It was really great to see so many new faces ( and of course also “old” faces) again.
After really great burgers and whiskey for free (YEEEAAAH we’ve got whiskey for free) the bingo games started.
Every Wednesday there is a special night at the Lamplighter with bingo games.
Our table was full of bingo’s papers, markers and beer.
Some of us were really into the game and super excited. Even though we were close to, we never won. Too baaaaad! We are pretty sure that the other tables were cheating. 

However we had a great Pub Night and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere at the Lamplighter.

Guys, Halloween is sooon! Don’t forget to sign up for the Halloween Party at Blarney Stone. Tickets will be sold out really fast…..

If you don’t have any costume for Halloween yet, join us for our Halloween shopping this Saturday, October 18.

Hope to see you next Wednesday for my last Pub Night 🙂
