What to do on the weekend ?

Hello boys and girls!

Another week is over, so we will check out what is going on in Vancouver this weekend. It seems that the weather will not be so good (Saturday cloudy/sunny, Sunday rain), but this would not stop our activities.  

All of you should know, that there is the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23. The huge three-day event will take place around the creek at Concord Pacific Place, Creekside, and of course, in the waters.  The city´s biggest Dragon Boat celebration will also feature live music, entertainment, food, shopping, family fun, and local artisans.  It is definitely worth a visit! There will be no entry fee.

In addition to that the International Jazz Festival 2019 takes place this weekend in Downtown Vancouver. If you are interested in Jazz music, you should come to the Robson Square. The festival lasts two days, namely on the 22nd and 23rd June. You don´t have to pay for a lot of concerts. On both days different musicians are going to perform between 12pm and 9pm. To see the exact entry-free concert program, look at the website www.vancouversbestplaces.com .

Finally I want to remind you of our INTERNeX event on Sunday. We have planned a Barbecue at the Spanish Banks Beach. If you look at the current weather report, there will be rain on Sunday. And a Barbecue in the rain is definitely not fun. 

Due to that we will go out for Burger eating all together. We reserved a table on Sunday, the 23rd June at the White Spot (405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1X4) at 6pm. 

We would be very happy if a lot of you come along for eating burgers with us. 48002939878_390603280c_o.jpeg

Those who have already paid for the BBQ can either pick up their money in the INTERNeX office or get it back at the dinner on Sunday.

 

Enjoy your weekend☺

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Tap house

 

Another Wednesday, another PuB NiGHT! Besides it was my second PuB NiGHT with the INTERNeX gang and my first PuB NiGHT I had to organize. After some researche I decided to reserve the Beaver Tap House. I wasn´t there before but their Internet review sounded good.

At the end of the night I probably can say, it was a good choice. I think everybody had a great evening. 

After we managed that everybody had a good seat, we talked a lot about everything and everybody. I also met some new faces yesterday. 

Furthermore it is to mention, that a special of the Beaver Bar is the famous music bingo every Wednesday. A song is played and you have to mark the singer and song title on your paper. Quite tough sometimes, but with team work we managed. In the first round Lukas and another girl, not from us, screamed BINGO simultaneously. But unfortunately she got the free Beer pitcher… 

All in all the music bingo was really funny, and I am sure that someone of us will win the next time.

We left the Beaver Bar at about 11:30 pm, but some of us were not tired at this time yet. Because of that a part of the INTERNeX group went on to the Yale Saloon. At the Yale we were almost the only ones, which is why the DJ played the Tequila song especially for us. The dance floor was only occupied by INTERNEX people. It was pretty cool to dance together with 10 other guys in an empty Pub 😀

At the end of this blog post, I like to say that I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! Thanks for coming!

Now I´m really looking forward to the weekend.

Cause that’s when our great Whistler trip is coming up. I hope to see many of you there again. 

See you on Saturday☺

PuB NiGHT Review: The Yagger’s

Shine bright like a diamond it is Thursday! I hope everyone is feeling great after last night. Once again we had a great pub night with awesome people. Wednesdays are one of the highlights of the week for me because I love to spend time with a big INTERNeX gang and find out how everyone is doing. Let’s see how our last night went.img_20190411_160416-e1555024066260.jpg

This week it was time to try out the Yagger’s downtown. It is located at West Pender Street in a fairly central location. The night started at 8pm as usual and not too soon after that our tables were full of INTERNeX people. We also had some new peeps joining our gang this weeks and it was great to see some of them at the Pub Night. All in all we stayed at the Yagger’s for a couple of hours, had some drinks, food, and great conversations.dav

After the Yagger’s we continued the night at, you could say our regular after party place, The Yale. Everyone was hyped about the Bull that you can ride there. Too bad for us the bull was not working last night, so we had to manage without it, and that’s exactly what we did. Once again we surrounded the pool table and had some games against each other. It is a good practise since we are playing pool pretty much every week al though I feel like I’ve just became worst every single week. Maybe some day I’ll be a pro too.

Thanks for everyone who showed up and thanks for a great night!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Two Parrots

What a night. The Two Parrots, awesome INTERNeX gang, the Yale Saloon, pool and some line dancing; what else do you need to make a boring Wednesday night into a great party night? Nothing!dav

As mentioned above we started the night gathering up at the Two Parrots which is located at Granville. Once again a lot of people showed up and we were even having some struggles fitting our huge group to the tables reserved for us. This wasn’t really a problem for us since we are not afraid to squeeze in and make some room for more people. I think there were around 20 of us all together.

When the night was coming closer to midnight our group moved the party one block away to the Yale Saloon. This time there was a pretty big group of us still at the Yale. Sadly for us the legendary bull was not in use ☹ We still managed to find out other things to do. We were playing pool and at some point there was a line dancing course happening at the dance floor. For most of us it was the first time learning line dancing but I bet we will be pros in that in the end of the summer!

Once again it was nice to hang at the Yale since our group was basically the only one present. It almost felt like a private party. I feel like Yale is becoming a tradition for the INTERNeX gang on Wednesdays. We will see what happens. Although the night was awesome and everyone had fun it was time to say goodbye to Jesper since this pub night was his last one. We will miss you Jesper!

Tomorrow is Game Night time! Make sure to show up to the office at 6pm to join for some fun games ☺

How was your weekend?

It’s beginning to look a lot like… summer! I did not expect to be able to wear shorts mid-May, but Vancouver continues to amaze me. Let’s look back on this fun, sunny weekend.

32266945_10156233996584647_4112762211934404608_nFriday night, it was time to go to our favorite country bar again: the Yale Saloon. And you know what that means… line-dancing time! Sadly, we were not wearing cowboy boots or hats, but that did not make it any less fun. Since we went line dancing before, we were not sure if we would learn a new choreography this time, or if we could show off moves we had already learned before. The choreographer did not let us down: we learned some new moves! When the line dancing ended, it was time to join some of you to the Bourbon. As always, we had a great time catching up with all of you and dancing to good music (sometimes even in a cage).

On Saturday, it was time to watch the Grand Final of 2018’s Eurovision Song Contest. I might have left Europe, but the European part of me has not left me. (Although, not only Europe participates in the contest, so what does being European regarding ‘Eurovision’ mean anyway?) My favorite thing about Eurovision is discussing the performances with friends, since most of the performances are quite, let’s say, unique. But hey, it would not be Eurovision if it didn’t include some laughs. I discussed the show with my Bulgarian friend from college, both of us supporting our own country. We figured neither of our home countries would win this year, but Israel’s “Toy” song winning the contest was definitely unexpected. Not only because of the song, but Israel is not even in Europe. Although, even Australia participates, so can we really be that surprised?

27241374947_326330bf27_nWhen I woke up on Sunday, I opened my weather app and saw that it was going to be 25 degrees Celsius that day. Great! Time to go to the beach! I spent the afternoon enjoying the sun and playing beach volleyball with some of you. At 4:30pm, we took the sky train to Planet Lazer: it was time to play laser tag with all of you! Playing three games was a lot of fun, yet exhausting as well. Water was our best friend when we finished. After hydrating ourselves, we all went home to rest. 

I hope you all had a great weekend!

See you on Wednesday at 131 Water!

How was your weekend?

Hello Monday, my old friend. The weekend is over again and the serious working life is back on my radar. And because I don’t feel quite ready yet to face all this work ahead of me, I want to take a stroll down memory lane with you about my weekend. Ready? Then let’s do this.

First stop on Friday evening for drinks: Darby’s. Second stop for some more beers: The Bourbon. When we strengthened ourselves with enough drinks, we headed to the Roxy, where a live band was playing and people were dancing and singing along. We joined this fun until the club was closing.

On Saturday, it was time to go to Grouse Mountain. There, the ’24 hours of winter’ event was taking place and we decided to be part of this. It was AMAZING. We did a snowshoeing tour with S’mores and apple cider next to a cozy campfire, took a sleigh ride and enjoyed the beautiful view over Vancouver that Grouse Mountain was offering us. We had so much fun, we stayed at the après-ski party until 1.30am before we headed home to our warm beds.

Sunday was my well-deserved lazy day. I took my time to sleep in, do groceries, wash my clothes and watch series. The fact that my house lost its electricity for three hours in the evening did not affect my relaxed mood at all.

Have a good start into the week and I will see you all on Wednesday for our PuB NiGHT at 131 Water!

How was your weekend?

It is nearly Christmas. And the Christmas spirit is already in the air. I saw a lot of snow and dressed up nicely for Christmas. I hear you already thinking ‘Huh, what did he do?’ Well, read on and find out!

20171216_114233

It was an early Saturday morning when it was time to catch the bus to Whistler. We met at Canada Place, where our bus was ready to bring us to the biggest ski area in British Colombia. After two hours of barely sleeping we arrived at ‘the place to be’ for snow fans. It was huge! We went in so many lifts and we did so many slopes, but we still not saw it all in this one-day trip. After a lot of hours on the mountain, we drank some beers at the après ski before heading back to Vancouver.

25551453_10212692552780720_2142147714_oIn Vancouver we celebrated Christmas a little earlier this year. It all began at 6 pm with a nice diner at White Spot. After the plates where empty, everybody was ready to exchange gifts during the Secret Santa game. We saw a lot of happy faces when everybody unpacked their presents. When the game was over, it was time for the real Christmas Party. We went across the street for some line dance classes at the Yale Saloon. We already came in the cowboy mood, so some people decided to ride the bull as well. We spent some time on the dance floor and had a great night.

Thanks to everyone who joined us this Christmas Party. If you missed it this time, you have another chance at our Christmas party in the office. And we hope to see you of course at our last PuB NiGHT of the year in 131 Water this Wednesday.
