Review: PuB NiGHT at The Distillery

Last night’s pub night started off at The Distillery and ended in Soho Billiards. So many people joined us last night and thank you all for coming; we had a really good time!

img_1202The Distillery is a bar + kitchen in Yaletown. Its Italian-American styled and part of the Yaletown Brewing Company, which is right next to The Distillery. As the name tells you, they brew their own beer. Through the windows in the back of The Distillery you can see all the barrels in the back, which is pretty cool. The Distillery and Soho Billiards are quite the contrast; The Distillery is pretty fancy and Soho Billiards is way more casual.

We had a very large area in the back with sofas and chairs, which were really comfy. We barely fit in the area since more and more people showed up. However, we managed to fit everybody in and we were all catching up on all the adventures we had and having a good time. Then Brody decided to show off some of his Chiropractor skills and made all of our necks and shoulders feel so much better.

IMG_1213.JPGAround eleven a lot of us wanted to go and play pool, so we decided to move the party to Soho Billiard, where they have loads of pool tables and two groups ended up playing at two different tables. This was my very first time playing pool, so naturally I was terrible in playing pool. It was a lot of fun though and many of you ended up staying there for a long time.

Once again you guys made my night, so thank you for that! I hope to see you again tonight at the concert or next Wednesday at PuB NiGHT!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

A Secret place to discover

Hi everyone! How is your Friday going? Maybe, thinking in the weekend? Probably yes.

Today I want to tell you about one awesome place that Mercedes and I discovered yesterday. We were looking for a place to eat and suddenly we saw a little hidden place between two supermarkets: London Drugs and Nesters Market (Abbott St with Hastings St).

It’s a little square with picnic tables to eat and take a rest, and a basketball zone. Very lighting and comfortable. Have a look at the pictures and judge by yourselves!

Vancouver has a large amount of hidden places, but you are lucky, we are here to discover them for you.

Shhhh!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday!

I have been writing this post for a while and I have to be sincere I didn´t know what to write about this time, so I just started to read the title again and again… Casual Friday, casual?  And then a lot of things come to mind…

Do you believe in the coincidences? In the destiny? Or in the casual things?

Googling a little bit around this topic it´s crazy all the information and coincidences that you can find in it. Even it exist a classification around coincidences!! Reading more there are more than one history that wow, it´s incredible, almost seem a film.

Here are two of the most interesting I found:

In 1900, King Umberto I of Italy was dining in a restaurant whose owner was born on the same day and city that the monarch and they were both really similar physically. They were married the same day with a woman of the same name. The restaurant owner had opened the establishment on the same day that Umberto I of Italy was crowned king. Everything was such a coincidence that the king invited the owner to an athletic championship with him the next day. Unfortunately that moment never happened. The owner was shot, and in the same instant that they were telling the king about what has happened, the anarchist Bresci shot and killed the King.

Another terrifying coincidence is around the lives of two famous American presidents: Lincoln and Kennedy. Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were appointed Congress in 1847 and 1947 respectively. Lincoln was elected president in 1860, just one hundred years later in 1960 Kennedy was elected president. They measured 1.83 meters and their names were seven letters.  Lincoln’s secretary, named Kennedy, and Kennedy´s secretary named Lincoln, advised them not to go to places where they died. They were both killed on Friday by bullets in their heads, shot from behind and in front of their wives. They both were assassinated by southern. Lincoln´s killer was Andrew Johnson who was born on 1808 and Kennedy´s was Lyndon Johnson and was born in 1908.

And this is the moment of stop! Because Wow. That´s is totally crazy!!!!!!!!!!Oh my god!

I was just trying to make a philosophical post but right now I am kind of scared…what would  happen if the coincidences are not coincidences and the casual is not casual anymore? What would happen if we are just part of something really big that we can´t control?

I just prefer not to think too much, just enjoy the casual or not-casual-but-seem casual circumstances that the life offers!

So read this post and then just forget it! FORGET IT!

Have a super nice Casual Friday!

Cheers,

Irene

Casual Friday – Zero Gravity!

Rick Mercer is a famous Canadian comedian, who is also television personality. In this television fragment he is looking for the ‘zero gravity’ feeling. They are putting him in a plain, which will fly around in circles and then will drop 10,000 feet in 23 seconds. This all will make him experience ‘zero gravity’.
The video is quite long, however when you jump to 2:19 Rick is entering the plain and the funny part starts. You can see him actually lose gravity and he is doing all kinds of funny things in the plain! Check it out.

Enjoy your weekend everyone! 🙂

Do you also have something funny or weird for Casual Friday? Let us know!

Celebration of Light Festival

Wednesday’s Vancouver’s streets and corners were filled with people wanting to see the annual Celebration of Light Festival happening at English Bay.

Since 1990, Vancouver has been home to the Celebration of Light (originally known as the Symphony of Fire). This international pyro-musical fireworks competition has attracted the world’s leading fireworks designers and is seen as a highly prestigious event. The fireworks festival creates an exciting arena where spectators can enjoy each country’s representatives unveil their latest techniques and use the most innovative fireworks materials as they compete to be crowned the winner.

Didn’t get the chance to see Wednesday’s show? No worries, you have three more opportunities! Meet other INTERNeX candidates this Saturday for another viewing of the Fireworks. We will meet up at the Starbucks behind the laughing statue in English Bay at 7 pm! Bring a good book, a game and a blanket because it will be a wait and can get a bit cold after the sun goes down!
