PuB Night Announcment

Tomorrow we’re having our PuB Night at the Darby’s. They’re located on Macdonald Street and 4th Ave, which is only about 5min walk away from different parks at the beach. So we can stay there until about quarter to 10 and then just head to the beach and we’ll be able to see the fireworks of the Celebration of Light because we’re just on the other side of the english bay.

They’re serving typical canadian food, from Poutine over Fish&Chips to Burgers or Salads and they offer more than 30 different beers.

You can get there with different busses. If you get off the Skytrain at Burrard Station you can take the busses 022, 044, 007,004 or 002 and get off at Macdonald& 4th Ave. (Macdonald&3rd Ave if you take the 022). We hope to get the change to sit outside at the patio, so bring a jacket or something, in case it gets colder during the evening.

Hope to see many of you there, it will be Henrik’s first PuB Night, so you can use the chance to get to know him. See you tomorrow at 7pm at the Darby’s!

Canada Day

The 1st of July is Canada Day, which means you are off work and can enjoy Vancouver by day. Vancouver city has many activities planned for this day and of course we do not want to miss this.

On Canada day the Canadians celebrate the ‘birth’ of their country. In 1867 three colonies were united into one country; Canada. Canada day is celebrated in whole Canada, but also Canadians outside Canada celebrate this anniversary. In 2011 the British Prince William and Kate visited Ottowa to celebrate Canada day.

We will meet at 6.30pm on West Pender and Broughton Street and will make our way to the Parade, afterwards we are going to try to find our self a spot to watch the fireworks at 10pm. However it is going to be very crowded and there are only certain spots from where you can see the firework. We are going to do our best to get a great spot to watch the fireworks. In case we miss the fireworks, no worries at the end of July and beginning of August the celebration of light is held were you can also see a beautiful dance of fireworks!

We hope to see you on Canada day and don’t forget to wear your Canadian outfit!

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Hello guys,

Another work weeks begins today! So let’s discuss this amazing and sunny weekend! On Saturday we went together to the Celebration of Light at English Bay. This is one of the biggest firework festivals in America!


First we met at the Starbucks. We had some cool frappuccino’s and other drinks.. After that we went down to the beach. It was early, so there was not a big crowd yet! We found a great spot in the middle of the beach.

Because we had to wait a few hours there was enough time to buy some food, and enjoy the sun! There were already a lot of people, but it was nice and friendly.

Around 8 pm the sun was getting lower and lower.. As you can see on the picture a big boat pumped water up in the air! After 9 the sun was gone. The skies were pretty clear, great weather for a big firework show!


At 10 pm the show started. This was the first night of the event! It’s really worth the wait when you see the show. I never saw so much fireworks before. And there will be 2 more of these great nights! 

  • Wednesday July 31 10:00 pm (host: Canada)
  • Saturday August 3 10:00 pm (host: Thailand)

So there you go! What do you think? Hope your weekend was awesome as well!
Enjoy your Monday today!

PuB Night Announcement – No PuB Night this week!

Hi folks,

Due to the fact that the “Celebration Of Light” festival will take place on the upcoming Wednesday, we decided to skip this week’s PuB Night.


Aaaaawww….don’t be sad! “Celebration of Light” is a world-class event that you should not miss! Especially because Wednesday August 3rd brings Spain, 2010 Celebration of Light winner, back to Vancouver!

Their show “Odyssey” will take you on an exciting journey from Barcelona to Vancouver, presenting powerful, synchronized music to their firework show. Get excited about Spain’s wide range of pyrotechnic artifices and extraordinary effects!


So you HAVE a reason to go out on Wednesday, even if it is not our famous PuB Night 😉

See you next week then!


your PR-Crew!
