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!

Highlights of the Month June 2014

With June beginning it is time to review the month of May and preview June and of course we do this in style… with a video.

We started the month of May with a visit to the extreme air park in Richmond. It was so much fun there if you did not had the chance to join us it is definitely worth going there! On the 9th of May it was time to do some relaxing activity with a visit to the cheesecake etc. Cheesecake etc is famous for their cheesecake and is only open at night. It is a really nice cozy restaurant and the cheesecake is delicious, afterwards we went to the Doolin’s for some drinks. In the mid of May we had our monthly overnight stay in Tofino. We went to Tofino for three days and had such a great time, we went surfing, whale watching, bear watching, kayaking and we had a little campfire near the hotel. After the Tofino it was time to go partying again in Vancouver with a Pub & Club night at The Pint.

In June we will go White Water Rafting in Chilliwack with Lee. In the second weekend we will go for a bike ride around Stanley Park and have nice little rest at one of the beaches. On the 21st of June it is time to support our German soccer team with some drinks and food. We will end the month of June with a Pub & Club night were we also sadly have to see goodbye to Daniela, so make sure you are there!

Review Granville Island

Last friday we went to the Cheesecake ETC for some delicious cheesecake afterwards we went to the Doolin’s for some drinks.

At the Cheesecake ETC you can choose between the original or the chocolate cheesecake. You can top them with a strawberry, raspberries or with a peanut butter cream. They also have daily specials, which was a cherry topping when we went. If you are not into to cheesecake you can also go for a Raisin & Walnut Cake or French toast. Not only delicious cheesecake can be ordered, also different lattes, teas and cold drinks are offered.

The Cheesecake ETC is located just of the Granville Brigde and opens at 7pm and stays open till 1am. So whenever you feel like dessert at night, this is the place the be. A nice cozy, candlelight-dark place.

After enjoying our cheesecake we decided to go to Granville Island for some drinks and a wander around, however the weather looked like rain, so we decided to go to Granville street and find a pub for some drinks. On Granville street we decided to go to the Doolin’s, a Irish pub on the corner of Granville and Nelson. At the Doolin’s we ordered some drinks and a couple more people went for poutine.

We hoped you enjoyed your cheesecake, see you at the Pub Night this week

ps: Don’t forget the rehearsal before the Pub Night (it’s a must, hehe)

PuB NiGHT Review

Last night we went to the Toonie-Tuesday at the Metropole, which is in the heart of Gastown. There are original mosaic tile floors, stained glass and exposed bricks – it’s charming! Furthermore you have the possibility to watch baseball and other sports on the TV screen. And also their have a pool table and tabletop soccer. These pup nights are an excellent opportunity to meet all the new people and catch up with the old ones. So, don’t be shy! If you didn’t come, you have to join us the next time.

 

The Metropole is on a Tuesday a very popular place, because of the cheap drinks. The beer was $2 and the highballs were $3, wasn’t it good? After 10pm the Pub was quite full and also we started to dance on the dance floor. We hope you all enjoined the PuB NiGHT as we did and we will see you next Wednesday again. 

For those people who haven’t enough from hanging out with us, you can join us this Friday for a Granville Island Tour at 6:45pm. We will start first with a tasty cheesecake at the Cheescake ETC. 

 

We hope we will see you guys soon at our next event.
