What to do on the weekend ?

Hello boys and girls!

Another week is over, so we will check out what is going on in Vancouver this weekend. It seems that the weather will not be so good (Saturday cloudy/sunny, Sunday rain), but this would not stop our activities.  

All of you should know, that there is the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23. The huge three-day event will take place around the creek at Concord Pacific Place, Creekside, and of course, in the waters.  The city´s biggest Dragon Boat celebration will also feature live music, entertainment, food, shopping, family fun, and local artisans.  It is definitely worth a visit! There will be no entry fee.

In addition to that the International Jazz Festival 2019 takes place this weekend in Downtown Vancouver. If you are interested in Jazz music, you should come to the Robson Square. The festival lasts two days, namely on the 22nd and 23rd June. You don´t have to pay for a lot of concerts. On both days different musicians are going to perform between 12pm and 9pm. To see the exact entry-free concert program, look at the website www.vancouversbestplaces.com .

Finally I want to remind you of our INTERNeX event on Sunday. We have planned a Barbecue at the Spanish Banks Beach. If you look at the current weather report, there will be rain on Sunday. And a Barbecue in the rain is definitely not fun. 

Due to that we will go out for Burger eating all together. We reserved a table on Sunday, the 23rd June at the White Spot (405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1X4) at 6pm. 

We would be very happy if a lot of you come along for eating burgers with us. 48002939878_390603280c_o.jpeg

Those who have already paid for the BBQ can either pick up their money in the INTERNeX office or get it back at the dinner on Sunday.

 

Enjoy your weekend☺

PuB NiGHT Review: Malone’s

2017-11-22 20.56.54

There we are, in the back of Malone’s, sitting at a long table with everybody. And even more people kept coming. Great to see so many people are showing up at the pub nights. After all the hungry people ate their burgers and pizza, we enjoyed the nice cocktails or one of the many special beers. Of course we ended up in the Metropole for some karaoke.

Malone’s is a big pub, but somehow always has a cozy feeling. With 38 different taps there is a beer for everyone. For the people who don’t like craft beers, Malone’s offers also a lot of cocktails. Everyday they have a special on the beer/cocktail of the day.

Hope you all had as fun as much I did and hope to see you all Saturday morning for our trip to Seattle!

Pub Night Review

Yesterday we went to the Mill near Waterfront at Coal Habour Centre. The Mill is famous for their big outdoor patio, were we luckily also had a seat.

We met at 7pm at the Mill and we were seated on the outdoor patio with a beautiful view over North Vancouver. There was a little plaza in front of us with small water fountains. Not only serves the mill many different drinks, such as the nice sangrias, but also the food is phenomenal. I tried the NY cheesecake with strawberry topping, also pizza, salmon burger and fudge cake were ordered. If you didn’t had time to come to the pub night last night, don’t worry, the mill is open 7 days a week!

 

The Victoria Trip is coming up, so don’t forget to sign up before Friday 18th July 3pm!

We will leave Vancouver at 7am and will take the sky train and bus to the ferry terminal from were we will go to Vancouver Island! Victoria is the capital of BC and very famous for they lovely flowers all over town. WE will stay in the HI-Hostel for a night and visit the Canoe brew pub for lunch and will go to the Spinnaker for dinner. For more details about the trip click here or here. Tag along for this great mini-holiday to Victoria!

On Sunday we have a distillery tour planned for you. This tour will take place on Granville Island and will take 40 minutes. In these 40 minutes you will learn more about the distillation process and afterwards we can taste some spirits. The tour cost $10 p.p and will start at 1pm. Please let us know before friday if you want to join, so we can make a reservation! See here or here for more information.

We hope to see you soon at one of our activities! Enjoy your day!!

Pub Night Review

Yesterday was our favorite day of the week again, which does not include Saturday and Sunday of course. We had again a super nice pub night at the Cambie.

We actually planned to have our pub night at the beach, but since it was pretty windy outside we decide to go to the Cambie instead. The Cambie is nice pub, which has long tables and you can even sit outside! As usually our pub night started at 7pm. We were lucky enough the get one of the tables outside, so we could enjoy the sun a little longer. We ordered some food and drinks, I definitely recommend the burgers there however this time I went for a caesar salad which is also delicious. After a while it got a chilly outside so we went inside to continue to Pub Night.

We had a lot of laughs last night and we are all exiting for the summer months and the fun stuff you can do while you are here in the summer. For those we do not join us this weekend to the rafting trip, we would recommend you to go for a hike near Vancouver, maybe Grouse Grind?, and afterwards you can relax on the beach. Or maybe rent a bike for a day and go around Stanley park and bring some lunch so you can have a little break on one of the nice beaches.

We hope you enjoyed the Pub Night yesterday and we will see you on the Rafting Trip

Reminder: International Dinner


The international dinner will take place on Saturday the 5th of April in the INTERNeX office at 7:00pm and we hope you all will join us. We are located in 88 West Pender Street at the International Mall. You have enough from Fries and Burgers and all the american food? Than cook or bake a traditional food from your home country and share it with us. The idea from the international dinner is that we can taste food from different countries. We don’t expect that you cook a hole meal just something simple. If you could bring $1 this night, we can provide you with plates, cutlery and etc.. Since we are located in the Mall, we are not allowed to drink alcoholic drinks but we can go afterwards to a after-dinner-drink somewhere else.

If you want to taste my german Kaiserschmarn than click here to join the event.

 

See you all on Wednesday for our PuB NiGHT @the Pint at 7:00pm!

International Dinner

The fondest memories are made gathered around the table, so join us for our international dinner on April 5th.

Since we landed in Vancouver, we had a lot of burgers, sushi and fries. So it is time to step back from all the burgers and fries and eat some home-made traditional meals. Every country or culture has some food which is very typical or traditional for them, so go in to the kitchen and make that delicious meal for your international friends and they will make some delicious food for your.
The dinner will take place on the 5th of April at 7pm in the INTERNeX office, which is located on 88 West Pender street in the International Mall. We do have a small microwave to heat up your food. We do not expect you to cook a huge meal, just something small and traditional, however if you like to cook or bake a whole meal, we do not mind! If you could bring 1$ that night, we can provide you with plates, cutlery and cups. Since we are located in a mall we are NOT allowed to have alcoholic drinks during the dinner, so please do not bring any alcohol to the office. After the dinner we can go for an after-dinner-drink to the Bismarck, which is just a minute walk from the office.

We hope to see you on Saturday April 5th for a nice dinner at the office

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver – The Famous Warehouse!

Want cheap food, but are too lazy to cook at home? The Famous Warehouse is one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite and is often frequented by INTERNeX-ers. First of all, you can’t really go wrong with pub food.

Secondly, everything on the menu is $4.95 – burgers with fries or soup, salads, wings in many flavours, fish tacos, spaghetti with meat sauce and more! You name it and its $4.95.

Well, technically $5.54 with tax (and I know this because Irene and I just went yesterday for lunch!) and $6 with tip.

I don’t think you can do better than this, unless you go to Mcdonald’s, but that’s kind of boring and you can’t have a beer to go with your burger!

Even better on Wednesday’s, they have $0.30 wings and Tuesday is all you can eat tacos for $7!

They have decent portions and though it is not the most luxurious food, you cannot beat the price.

Seeing their original location at Granville is always, always busy with line-ups, they just recently opened a new one on Hastings. So go check it out next time you are craving some delicious greasy food and let me know what you think!
