PuB NiGHT Review: Halloween Party

Thank you all for joining us yesterday for the Halloween Party at Caprice Nightclub! We had so much fun and I hope you did too!

Caprice is a night club located on Granville Street / Entertainment District. It is a big club with two levels and on the ground level two different rooms. Every Friday night they organize International Fridays with all kinds of different music genres and if you’re on the guest list you can get in for free.

This “PuB NiGHT” was of course a little bit different because of Halloween. When I arrived at the club, Granville Street was already packed with a lot of people in all kinds of costumes, for example I met JigSaw and even the clown from IT.

After most people arrived we entered the club and got something to drink. The club was nicely decorated and the music was very good, with genres like R&B and Dance.

I hope that you all enjoyed Halloween and we are looking forward to see you all on Sunday for the Brewery Tour!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Granville Room

Yesterdays PuB NiGHT was at the Granville Room, and although it didn’t really start of on the best terms, we had such a great night again in the end.

pubnight2The Granville Room is part of the Donelly pub Group. This bar is located in the heart of the Granville Entertainment District. This cocktail bar serves an extensive list of classic and signature drinks, but you can also get yourself a nice craft beer. They have some pretty sweet deals everyday, like the half priced bottles of wine on Wednesdays.

It was a crowded group since some people took along new friends of them, which isalways fun. In no time there were quite some bottles of wine on the table, since we discovered the sweet deal. Some other people got themselves into the cocktails though, because it is a cocktail bar after all. With the fun music playing I even found people showing their dance moves a bit!

I had a really fun night and I hope you all did to! Tonight we are getting more cultural at the Museum of Anthropology, so I hope to see you all there at 6pm

Rockies Trip Spring Review II

The second morning was another early morning, we had breakfast at 7:45 and hat to be in the bus at 8:15. Too bad for our German boyband that they were just seconds too late, lucky for us that we did not have to sing. No worries the boyband did a great job in singing “Mamor Stein und Eisen bricht” and got some back up from the other Germans in the bus.

Our first stop of the day was at Mount Robson, the highest point in the Rockies and the second highest peak in British Columbia. We were luckily to see the top of the mountain for a couple of minutes before it disappeared in the clouds again. We shot some nice pictures and headed towards Jasper for a lunch break.

Jasper is a nice town, which get really crowed in the summer because it is so close to all the outdoor activities. Some of us stopped in the grocery store to get some food, others went into to a restaurant or walked down to Subway. After a short break and enjoying the sunshine it was time to get into to bus again and drive to our next stop.

The next stop was at the Athabasca Falls. This waterfall is not known because of its heights, but it is known for its force du to the large quantity of water falling into the gorge. It was a stunning view, especially the color of the water was very picturesque. After walking around the fall and seeing it form all different point we had to get back to the bus to drive to the Columbia Icefield.

The Columbia Icefield is one of the largest accumulations of ice and snow south of the Arctic Circle. We drove in a snow coach, which is especially made for this and there are only 24 of those buses, up to a snow field were the wind was blowing crazy and it was freezing could and of course we all were again prepared super good with or sneaker and thin jackets on! It was a great experience, but I think everybody was happy when we were back in the bus again.

Our next stops were at the Waterfowl Lake and Bow Lake before we ended our day in Banff. In Banff we stayed at the Mt. Royal Hotel and some of us went out for dinner, pizza, McDonalds, Steaks and Ribs were on the menu. Afterwards we went out to a pub for some pre-drinks before we headed out to the Night Club for some crazy dancing.

Stay tuned for the next Rockies review and do not forget to join the After-Rockies-Party by clicking here.

What was your favorite part of the second day?

INTERNeX Canada: Culture Shock

Maybe you are going to going out? Partying and clubbing, are maybe one of the best options to see the differences between the countries and cultural issues. So, to say goodbye to the weekend: guide to survive in a Canadian Disco!

1) The schedule: the discos open at 10:00 more o less… until 2:00 or 3:00 pm. So, you have to keep in mind that all starts earlier. This schedule has a huge advantage… you can do a lot of things the following day!

2) Come back home: the busses stop running at 12:30 or 1:30. You can take the night bus, but the schedules are different. And be careful! If you are going to Downtown, Granville Street is closed for the cars and the buses… so the routes can change…

3) The prices: depends on your city of origin, tickets can be expensive for you… but there are some tricks. Sometimes you can get flyers for getting in for free. Other option is go to a Pub-Club Night. But don’t worry about it, in INTERNeX we know the best and cheapest places to go!

4) Dancing: well, you have to know one thing. Here in Canada, the influence of the hip-hop culture is very strong. The same thing happens in USA. Here, they are crazy for rap music and the people in the discos use to dance like the Afro-American people. It’s strange for us, because in Spain we have a lot of hip-hop influences (in cinema, music…) but we adapted them to an “European style”. When I see the people dancing like that, it always reminds meof an incredible Rize film… a documentary about krumping and clowing, two different styles of street dancing. You have to see it! Maybe you can get some ideas!

What do you think? Can you survive to a Canadian disco?
Cheers,

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Erik went all out with his shorts and flip flops -I applaud you, sir!

Out of all of the pub nights and trips I have organized and attended, probably the most memorable event for me was last Friday.  We were all at the Morrissey pub on Granville street. It was such a fun night with everyone, I thought. Fun…and also very special.

It was actually different from our usual pub and club nights, because not only was it a Hawaiian theme, but also because Tim and our company partners from Denmark came to join us! It was so much fun to see every one enjoying their time, drinking beers, and smiling. I always know Morrissey is a great place for us!

Cheers to tequila shots!!!

As we were sitting at the pub though, I noticed people were taking turns and disappearing for a good five to ten minutes. Hmmm very interesting, I thought. When I asked where they were going, they said they needed to go to the washroom….that must have been a very long washroom break I must say. But later I found out why. My themed pub and club night turned into a my surprise goodbye party! Ilse presented me with a photo scrapbook with everyone’s comments in it. I was so caught off guard that I didn’t know how to react. I think that part of the night is what made it so special for me.

group photo!

Then after, we made our way to VENUE! Enough being emotional because we had to go party it up and dance the night away at the club! Even Joan and Maria joined us to buy everyone a round of tequila shots! It was very very sweet of them and I’m sure all of us really appreciated it (not going to say who 😉 )! Overall it was such a successful, emotional, hilarious, and incredible night!

Thank you everyone for coming out that night and celebrating!

Cheers,

Flora
