What to do on the weekend?

Open the beer bottles, put on your casual clothes and prepare yourself for the parties. Weekend just started! For people who love the circus, Vancouver is the place to be. Maybe you already saw the big tents at the Pacific Boulevard and were wondering what is happening there. From this weekend on Cirque du Solei is giving big shows every weekend till December. Enjoy magic shows, acrobatics and much more.

On 31 October we will go to the Halloween party at nightclub Studio. You can sign up now, so you won’t miss this great party. Prepare yourself well by going Halloween shopping this Saturday. We will meet in front of Value Village to get the best costume for you. And we have got something special for you. We will give away two free tickets! One ticket for the person with the scariest costume and the other ticket for the person with the funniest costume.

After the shopping there is enough time to go to the Kitsilano Autumn Fair. This is a free community event with a lot of activities both indoor and outdoor. The event will take place from 10 am till 3 pm.

Of course there are a lot of Halloween events going on like Ghost Train in Stanley Park, Fright Nights at Playland or Bear Creek Halloween Trains and Potter’s House of Horrors in Surrey. Whatever you decide to do, or decide to do nothing at all, I hope you have a great weekend!

INTERNeX Halloween Party 2013 – Review Part 2

—WHO WON THE PRIZES?—WHO HAD THE BEST COSTUME @ OUR BIG HALLOWEEN PARTY?—

Now I will continue the review of our big Halloween party @ The Blarney Stone. Within Part 2 of the review I will answer the following questions:

Who won the costume contest?
Which team won the scavenger hunt?
Are there any crazy pictures from the Halloween Party?

First I want to announce the winner of our costume contest:

The winner of our great costume contest is:
…drum roll…..

…MARTIN! Congratulations! Look at his amazing costume on the right!

Now I want to say something about the scavenger hunt. We divided people into three teams. They had to organize pictures or videos of the followings tasks as fast as possible:

– A team member hugging a stranger
– Entire team has to do the situation “I   can’t believe we all fit in here!”
– Entire team has to jump
– Getting four strangers to spell out “YMCA” with their bodies
– A teammate has to ask a stranger if she/he wants to marry her/him

But now I want to announce the winner:
The fastest team and for that the winner of our scavenger hunt is:
Team 3 with MARTIN, JULIA, RHYS and AXEL! Each of you won a prize!
Have a look at these crazy pictures:


And now the PR-Team wants to announce the winner of our additional prize: the prize for the best picture of the party:

And the winner is: OUR LOVELY FAIRY TOBIAS!

Look at the picture on the left! HAHAHA!

But not only Tobias gets the additional prize. Of course the person who took the picture gets the prize as well: RHYS, our lovely Pope!

And this brings us to the end of our amazing Halloween party @ The Blarney Stone. Thanks to all people who joined this crazy party. It was legendary!

 

Take care,
Tobias

PuB NiGHT Announcement

And it is time for PuB NiGHT again! This time we will combine it with a little shopping before we go for a drink – or two, or three, or… As our big Halloween party is this Friday, we thought we show you where you can get some cheap stuff to dress up. Meeting point is the thrift store Value Village at 1820 E Hastings St at 6:30 pm (MAP). There we will indulge in some crazy shopping and all of us will have the possibility to try something out. Maybe get some final touches for an already decided on costume, or find something which does not take a lot of effort and is still a costume for the big party. You probably have heard of Value Village, check out this video

Afterwards, we will go to The Reef and finally have our drinks 😉 By the way, this is a bar people under age can enter, so come on people under 19, come and join us tomorrow! And for everybody who does not want to tack along for the costume shopping and just want to meet us there for drinks: Our reservation there is for 8:15 pm and the address is 1018 Commercial Drive, The Reef (MAP).

The bar itself is in the Caribbean and its menus sparkle with the potential of lunch, brunch and dinner plates inspired by the styles and tastes of the Caribbean. Vibrant colors, tropical plants, and kitschy signs bring you back to days spent skipping geometry in Caribbean boarding school, creating a casual, fun atmosphere.

The specials you can get are:

Draught beer: Pint $5.50, glass $5, pitcher $19

Most cocktails: $7

Snacks: Several things in between $4 – $10

So come and join us for another great night out!

INTERNeX Canada: Halloween Night Review

I wonder how many people in Vancouver are regretting the last couple of drinks at the Halloween party just now, sitting at the office and wishing the day was over already. But hey, it was totally worth it, right? For my first Halloween in Canada I had big expectations, of course, and oh boy they were more than fulfilled last night!! Hundreds of people in their Halloween costumes went absolutely crazy and partied hard all night long. Last night’s venue, The Blarney Stone in Gastown, was packed at 7pm already – it was insane! As the INTERNeX crew is always up for a good party, we were about 30 people in the end and once the live band started to play, there was no holding us back. Pretty much everyone spent the rest of the night on the dancefloor. Well that’s what I did, so I might be wrong. 🙂 Anyway, many hours of dancing later I eventually took a cab home at like 2am – thanks to my roommate who had to drag me out of the bar. If it wasn’t for her, I would still be there I think.

Today may not be the best day ever but after all, I am very glad and thankful to be experiencing so many fun and downright awesome things in Vancouver. And this is not just about a beautiful city and a good party night but mostly about all the people around one that make a place unique and create lasting memories.

Check out the pics on Flickr and/or facebook!! (All the censored ones can be obtained from me upon special request. 😉

Happy Hangover 🙂

INTERNeX Canada: Halloween Night at The Blarney Stone!

Halloween in North America is like Oktoberfest in Munich: You have to experience it right there to get the real deal! Your very last chance is tomorrow, Wednesday 31st, and you should definitely spend it at one of the hottest locations for Halloween this fall: The Blarney Stone in Gastown! Many people have already signed up with us, some are bringing their friends (you are more than welcome to do so too) and we also know of many other language schools and companies that are going to turn this place upside down tomorrow night!! The Blarney Stone is an authentic Irish Pub on Carall Street and a crazy party place where the live band “Usual Suspects” and DJ “Steel” will play some wicked tunes for us to dance the night away. So go get yourself a cheap last-minute costume (some tipps for that on our blog) and join us for dinner, drinks, dance and general madness on the main Halloween Night this year!! 😀 NO COVER BEFORE 8pm (our table is reserved from 7pm) but make sure you get there early enough in order to avoid a big line-up, it will be a $12 cover charge if you’re still outside after 8pm – just letting you know as it will get busy for sure!

Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow!

Scary wishes…..muahaha 😉

A FREE BEER at INTERNeX PuB NiGHT

Our gang having a couple of beers!

FREE BEER!!!
When have you ever heard these two words put together before?! A wise person once told me – beer is never FREE!

But for a limited time, the first few people who attend this Wednesday’s PuB NiGhT which is TODAY (October 20, 2010) will get FREE BEER, or until the first pitcher is finished! Tonight’s PuB NiGhT starts at 8:30pm!
We have alot of events that are brewing in time to celebrate Halloween!!!
Next Wednesday, we are going to celebrate Halloween in style!  You can choose to come dressed up for this frighteningly, scary holiday!  What costume would you choose?

Alot of people from other countries are telling me that Halloween is not “big” where they live, but you should experience Canada’s Halloween! It is quite a spectacular scene – we take Halloween seriously, and it shows! That’s why we should all participate in this holiday and show them what we’re made of!

Within the next few pub nights are trip give-aways, and even a ticket to Vancouver Fashion Week!!! You should all keep your eyes on our facebook, blogs, and newsletters to catch all the upcoming events for your chance to WIN BIG!!!
