How was your weekend?

“Zie ginds komt de stoomboot…” You don’t know that lyrics? Could be, it is the dutch song we sing when Sinterklaas is arriving in the Netherlands. And Saturday was that day. Because we are some Dutch people, we, uh I, did want to celebrate this great party on Friday, so we celebrated it with Sinterklaas music and pepernoten. Everybody loved it so much *kuch*.

Saturday was match day. Canucks were playing against St. Louis Blues. We met up in front of the Rogers Arena and found our seats. After the national anthems of the USA and Canada the game began. In the break it was time to see how lucky we were tonight and we bought some 50/50 tickets. Spoiler alert: We won nothing. The rest of the game was exciting. We saw some fights and the teams were quit even. It was a tie, but in the overtime the blue ones scored one more time. That meant St. Blues won the game. Afterwards we met the rest of INTERNeX at the Bourbon and we had a lot of fun the rest of the night.

Sunday was recovering day. Netflix all the way. After all it was a good weekend. How was your weekend? Tell me everything about it next PuB NiGHT in Malone’s.

How was your weekend?

Wow, that went fast! Weekend is already over. Time flies when you are having fun. Now the first question this Monday you probably need to answer is: “How was your weekend?” I also got this question this morning and this was my reply:

“Great” I answered when I was walking like a zombie to the coffee machine. On Friday after work I went with The Investor Group, Lucas’ work, to the Comedy Night. There were three comedians who all got me laughing. So they did a good job. Afterwards we went to The Dime to have some long islands with Corona’s on top. Never seen that before, but it tastes good. Because the night was still young, we decided to go to The Bourbon were we met the others from INTERNeX.

Next day I had to show someone my room, because I am moving out. When I looked around I decided to make it look good and rentable. After the showing I went bowling and we had to go to the Bourbon again. You are asking why? To see if Eirik was doing well with his new job he offered the night before. We played some beer pong and pool.

Sunday was a good day. There was no rain falling out of the clouds, so I had to use that and do something outside. I looked at my to do list and decided to go to the first unchecked thing on the list: The Lighthouse park. When I arrived there I looked on the map and decided where to go and what to see. The sky cleared up and I could enjoy a nice sunset after climbing the different look out spots. When the sun was under and it was getting darker, it was time for me to go. So how was your weekend? Tell me all about is at the next PuB NiGHT!

How was your weekend?

What do Granville, Chinese Garden, Playland, Bourbon and Koerners Pub have in common? They all have a ‘N’ in the word. Yes, that’s true. But they also have another thing in common. I visited all these places this weekend. Curious what I did there? Find out in the new ‘How was your weekend?’ blog post.

 

22501126_10212216658803668_742330225_nFriday around four o’clock people slowly were showing up in Oktoberfest style at the office. We played some German music to get in the mood for the Oktoberfest party. When it was 6 o’clock, it was time to go for the real work and we went off to Koerners Pub at UBC to have a nice Oktoberfest. We drank beers in big cups, sang along with music and danced at the outside stage.

Saturday I woke up. Barely. I knew exactly what I was going to do this day: Nothing! Laying in bed all day watch some Netflix. But when the night arrived, I had to get changed for some more drinks. Because it was the last night for Lara, we went to the Bourbon to celebrate she leaves. Just kidding, I will miss you. We played some beer pong and pool. After all a nice night.

2017-10-16 16.50.47_previewOn Sunday morning we went to the Halloween parade. We had perfect places underneath a heater and we got ourselves some food and drinks. We not only saw scary things, but also a lot of random things. From Chinese dragons to ghost busters, we saw it all. After the parade Lucas and I went to the Chinese Gardens. We learned all about the Yin and Yang of every little detail in the garden. In the night we went to the Fright Nights at Playland. We went into the attractions and haunted houses. I thought they wouldn’t scare me, but I was wrong about that part. In the haunted houses I scared a few times. After trying a BeaverTail we went home. Also had a nice weekend? Share your story at the next PuB NiGHT.

How was your weekend?

I can imagine everybody is sitting in front of the computer, refreshing the wordpress page from INTERNeX and hoping for the new ‘How was your weekend’ blog post. Good news. Here it is. So sit back and enjoy my adventures of this weekend.

It all started Friday after work when I went to Steamworks to eat diner. After the nice guy who was sitting next to me paid my food, I went to Nuba in Yaletown where I met some other candidates. We went to Granville where half of the group wanted to eat something first, the other half including me went to Donnellans as the beginning of the pub-crawl. After the group was complete again, we wanted to go to the next pub. But instead of going to the next pub, we ran into a lady who gave us free tickets for Studio, a club on Granville. That meant the pub-crawl was over and the club night began. After a few hours, we decided to check out Cambiebar. Instead of Cambiebar, we ended up in the Metropole. Not singing a song, because there was no karaoke this night.

The next day it was time to go to the Richmond Night Market. When we arrived, we saw a big line in front of the entrance. But luckily a lady came to us and sold us a $25 dollar ticket to skip the line. Inside we had so many choices for food it was hard to decide what to eat. After our meals we checked out the other non-food area and the fair. We decided to end the day in the Bourbon where we enjoyed our cheap-happy-hour drinks.

Sunday some people wanted to jump at the trampoline park. I doubted to go, but because it was raining and I was very tired, I decided to stay home today and watch a movie instead. It was a very relaxing Sunday.

Hope you all had a good weekend as well and hope to see everybody Wednesday at PuB NiGHT.

How was your weekend?

Monday. Back to normal life. Half asleep going to work. Looking back at an amazing weekend. So many adventures done, so many memories made. If you want to know everything I did this weekend, keep reading and you will find out.

My weekend started Friday. After we finished our work at the office, we ate some tacos and went to the BC Place Stadium to watch the football game BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes. Everything I expected from a football game became true. There were big sacks of popcorn, cheerleaders, a mascot, lottery, commercials. Exactly as how we know it from the movies. It was really fun to see and experience a real North-American sport like this. Although we didn’t know the rules, it was real fun to watch the game.

The next morning my alarm went off way too early. We met at 8 am at the airport to pickup two cars and drove to Joffre Lake. After 4 hours driving (because of a cycling event on the road) we arrived at the Joffre Lake Provincial Park. After 5 minutes of hiking, we already saw our first lake. We made some pictures and went to the second lake. After an hour climbing over rocks, walking up stairs and a few picture moments we arrived at the second lake. This one was even more beautiful. After another 30 minutes of hiking over bridges and along a waterfall we arrived at the last lake. Amazing to see how beautiful Canada can be. We did our last photoshoot and hiked all the way back back to the car. After 3 hours driving back to Vancouver, I ate something and made myself ready to go out in the Bourbon. After a couple dances and drinks we went to the Cambie Bar were we ended this long day.

Good morning Vancouver, Sunday arrived. Time to go to the Vancouver Street Food Festival. After yesterday, I walked around like a zombie to search for some coffee to get awake. None of the food trucks were selling coffee. When I finally found some coffee, the Street Food Festival could begin. We ate a lot of nice food and listened to the cover band that was playing some nice music. After a while we got ourselves an airbrush tattoo and the festival was already near its end. I decided to go home and have a good night sleep. I hope your weekend was as fun as my weekend and I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT on Wednesday.

Review: PuB NiGHT at The Lamplighter

Last night’s PuB NiGHT was at the Lamplighter and it was a great night, thank you all for coming!

IMG_4225.JPG

The Lamplighter is a really nice pub in Gastown and they play Bourbon Bingo there every Wednesday. You can get the bingo sheets for free and every round you need a different pattern to win. Everyone on our table was playing and we were getting really excited about it. In the first Merle won 3 ciders and in the very last game we were even luckier, as three of us won! Marie and Iris won 19(!) shots of Bourbon for the whole table and Zack won some beer.

IMG_4228Since it was Janels last PuB NiGHT her flag was going around the table for everybody to write on and some people were passing along their notebooks to people who are leaving us soon too. After everybody had written something we decided to end PuB NiGHT in the best way possible by going to The Met. Everybody joined in to sing our favourite karaoke song “We’re all in this together”.

I think it’s safe to say Janel’s last PuB NiGHT was a good one, thanks to you guys!

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
