New INTERNeX PuB NiGHT Location

Happy Friday everybody! So this week seems to have flown by once again but i think that is because of all the Olympic buzz flying around the city. What kind of events have you all been to or are planning on going to? I encourage you guys to send me some of the pictures that you have taken this past week so we can show off just how beautiful our city truly is. I’m downtown nearly every day morning and night and it seems like its never truly quiet down here anymore. We definitely ran into some troubles last PuB NiGHT because The Cambie was exceptionally busy due to the fact that everyone was out on the town to watch some of the live Olympic events. Since there was absolutely no room to sit at at this location Shinya and I headed over to several other bars, including the lamplighter, to try and find somewhere that had enough room for us. No luck…until we  found The Metropole (320 Abbott Street). The place had lots of booths and hightops available, pool tables and other games for us to play, and great food/drink specials. $3.50 Sleeves, $5 Doubles and $8 for a Can of Beer and a Shot! If you want to take a closer look at this pub visit their website but trust me it’s a great place and it actually used to be one our PuB NiGHT locations in the past. Just so you guys know this bar has no cover charge until 9pm. If you arrive any later then 9pm you will have to pay $8 so i recommend all you late comers to head down a little earlier then usual so you don’t waste any of your drinking money! lol. As always Shinya and i will be at the Waterfront sky train station from 7-730 for those of you who are unsure as to where The Metropole is located but if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to text or call either myself or Shinya. This might also be Shinya’s last PuB NiGHT with him so let’s give him a  nice big farewell guys!
