Review: PuB NiGHT at TAPshack Burrard Bridge

It was a great PuB NiGHT yesterday at TAPshack! Thank you all for coming. I had an amazing night with everyone!

This time we went to TAPshack under the Burrard Bridge. They have happy hour every day from 8PM to closing time, when the beers, wines, some cocktails and snacks are cheaper! It is not a really big place, but it has a really good atmosphere. The view is also amazing! We could see Granville Island, the boats and the bridges. When it got darker it got even prettier because of all the lights.

Most of us are going on the Rockies trip this weekend, so this was definitely one of the big topics of the evening. Everyone was making plans for the trip and talking about how excited they are to go! This was really great to hear, because we are as excited as everybody else!

Have a great Easter Weekend and for everyone who is coming on the trip see you tomorrow morning!!

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

An amazing PuB and CluB NiGHT and a walk through Vancouver, enjoying beautiful weather: That was our weekend. I hope you had a good one as well but let me sum ours up for everybody who had to miss out on it.

On Friday, a few INTERNeX clients who were persistent to finish their working week with a group of nice people and good music met up in The Cambie downtown and enjoyed a few drinks. Even though it was PuB and CluB NiGHT, we were actually more chatting away then being crazy on the dance floor, but I just go ahead and say it was still a very nice night out. The music was a mixture between rock and the newest charts and something I can frankly not categorize, but it was fun watch a few Vancouverites dance to it 😉 Take a look at our Facebook pictures to get an impression…

After granting everybody one day off to get over possible hangovers, a small group of interested people met up again on Sunday. The task of the day was to explore some of Vancouver’s neighborhoods by foot. Luckily, the weather was absolutely beautiful: Loads of sunshine and no rain whatsoever! So our brave little group set out to explore and we started at the Vancouver Public Library. For all of you who have not yet taken a look at it: It is an impressive building resembling the ancient Roman coliseum and was built in the 90s.

Moving on, we went through Yaletown, Vancouver’s former meatpacking district. Though it’s taken years for the neighborhood to really catch on, it is now a funky upscale district of furniture shops, restaurants, multimedia companies, “New York-style” lofts, and lots and lots of clubs.

Continuing our excursion we were reaching False Creek and took the tiny Aquabus to set over to Granville Island, which is not really an island. It contains a collection of shops, restaurants, theaters, artists’ workshops, housing, a hotel, and still-functioning heavy industry. Right at the top of the Aquabus dock is the entrance into the Granville Island Public Market. And guys believe me: This is paradise! Everything that is edible was probably there. Mountains of fruit and candy. Just take a look at our pictures, it was just amazing!

 

 

 

 

 

After a short lunch break, who can resist eating if surrounded by food, we continued our walk. Strolling down the Island Park Walk, we had the chance to enjoy Vancouver’s beautiful skyline in the sunlight. Passing the Burrard Bridge, the Maritime Museum, and a 30 m (98ft.) totem pole, we finally arrived at Kitsilano Beach. One of the many beaches of Vancouver, offering a lot of free recreational activities, like for example volleyball courts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So a relaxed afternoon came to its end and we have one more time a lot of pictures to share with you.

See you all again soon,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

 “Bicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, self propelled couches, and any other form of human powered locomotion are all welcome! Bring your friends and families, bring costumes, noisemakers and signs.” This is Critical Mass!

Friday, bless Friday! Everybody has to be happy today, the weekend start in a few hours. Do you have plans for today?  Maybe, you would like to attend to the Critical Mass.

The last Friday of every month; with rain, snow or sunshine, a large amount of people gathering in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The main purpose of the event is to demand a public space to ride (for cyclists, long boarders, bmx-er…), celebrate non-polluting forms of transportation and have fun! Half-protest and half-flashmob, started in Sweden in the 70s and was adopted by the Vancouverites in 1998.

Everybody is invited to ride together and create car-free space. There isn’t a prearranged way; this is decided collectively while the event is taking place, like the length of the ride. This happens thanks to the “corkers”, the people who block traffic and let the mass through.

Normally, the mass goes to Granville Street Bridge, then to Burrard Bridge and Lions Gate Bridge. When all the people have arrived at the middle of the bridge, they start to celebrate, raise up their bikes, and shout loudly. After that, the bunch moves on to the next bridge. Sounds really fun, isn’t it?

WHEN: Friday, 26th July. Meet at 5 – 5:30, starts at 6 PM.

WHERE: Vancouver Art Gallery on the Georgia Street side [by the fountain] MAP

Have a nice weekend!
