PuB NiGHT Review

“You Fat Bastard!” is what all the Whitecaps supporters yell to disturb the opponent’s goalkeeper.
Yesterday we collaborated together with International House, a language school we work closely with and went to see a CONCACAF game. It was the Vancouver Whitecaps vs Olimpia from Honduras.

First, we met with the language school students. It was quite interesting and it didn’t take long for everyone’s curiosity to get the better of them and mingle.
After growing into this big group we made our way to Doolin’s Irish Pub there we met the manager of International House who was just as excited to see the game as the rest of us. At Doolin’s we drunk a quick pint of beer before we all marched together with many other Whitecaps supporters to BC Place who were beating drums and cheering all the way there.

Finally following our arrival at the stadium and getting our seats in the supporter’s corner the game began. The Whitecaps were dominating the game from the beginning but only in the 42nd minute were they able to score a goal through Kianz Froese! 1-0 for the Whitecaps! And the fans cheered with all their might.

For the second half the Vancouver soccer team decided to play a little more defensive. However this gave Olimpia more chances which made the game even more exciting than the first 45 minutes. There were some pretty close calls but luckily the Whitecaps were able to keep the score and leave the stadium as winners.

In the meantime many of our other INTERNeXers gathered together for the “Alternative Pub Night” organized by Steve. We joined them at Steamworks after the game and brought along some of the students from International House.

It was an awesome night with lots of fun and excitement!
See you next time!

Whitecaps vs Olimpia

Vancouver’s favorite soccer team is having a match on September 16th. And it’s not just any game. It’s a CONCACAF game which can be compared to Europe’s Champions League. Only here it’s a league for North and Central America as well as the Caribbean. That means this match against Olimpia from Honduras is quite a big deal!

On September 16th, instead of a normal Pub Night, we’ll be able to cheer for the Whitecaps together with their most loyal and crazy (in a cool way) fans.

We’ll meet up at Doolin’s Irish Pub at 5:00pm. It’s early for a Wednesday but it’s definitely something you shouldn’t miss if you want to have a real Vancouver experience!
In case you can’t make it at 5:00pm still try to be there before 6:00pm because that’s when we begin marching towards BC Place.

Besides the hardcore fans we’ll be there together with International House, a language school INTERNeX works closely with. They actually came up with this event and helped us get these awesome tickets! Cheers to that!

Tickets are 30$ per person. Just drop in to the INTERNeX office until latest September 11th to pay for an exciting game with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

See you then!

Review: Pub Night @ Doolin’s Irish Pub

Yesterday we had another great pub night. This time we went to Doolin’s Irish Pub. Funny to have a talk with you guys about different accents and dialects. This was Frederikke’s and Alexander’s last pub night, so it’s was good to see both “old” and new faces showing up. As you can see on the picture a special surprise was given to Frederikke… of course a Canadian flag with greetings from a lot of INTERNeXers. A special thanks to Alexander and Johanna for preparing this surprise. And thanks to both Alexander and Frederikke for your participation in so many pub nights and INTERNeX activities. Wish you guys the best in the future, whereever you go and whatever you decide to do.

Thanks to all of you for another good evening, and hope to see you for a good time at Extreme Air Park on Saturday at 1pm. You can sign up here.

And you can still sign up for the Portland trip. Don’t think twice… this will be an awesome trip 🙂 Get more information and sign up here + make your payment at the INTERNeX office (only $229 + $30).

Review: Halloween party @ Blarney Stone

Last Friday we went to Blarney Stone for an awesome Halloween party. A lot of people were already about to line up in front of Blarney Stone at 7pm when we arrived. Luckily our tickets allowed us to skip the line. Inside it was already packed with people. We quickly realized that this was all the party people who participated in the Halloween pub crawl. After some time quite a few people went on to the next pub… but it didn’t last long before a lot more people arrived, and the pub was once again packed.

There really was no limit to the craziness of the different costumes that we saw this night! We saw everything from a guy dressed up as spaghetti with meatballs to a girl wearing a big hat that looked like a turkey. There was a Nina Turtle, Spiderman, a guy wearing a banana costume and much much more. As you can see we were of course also dressed up for Halloween.

We all had a great time. Got a bit of something to eat, a bit to drink and then off we went to the packed dance floor. The music played was not always the ordinary type of club music, and every now and then a live band was playing… actually not bad at all! You could sort of call this a Halloween party with an Irish twist.

Thanks to you guys who made this evening and night awesome! Take a look at more Halloween party pictures here.

Hope to see you for another great event/activity this Saturday at Extreme Air Park (Canada’s BIGGEST trampoline park). Don’t worry, it’s not dangerous. Everybody can do it 🙂 You can sign up here.

And of course we also have our pub night at Doolin’s Irish Pub on Wednesday at 7pm.

Finally, we have our Portland trip from October 14th till October 16th. Join in for some early Christmas shopping, NBA awesomeness and great sightseeing. Sign up here and visit the INTERNeX office to make your payment (only $229 for the trip + $30 for an NBA match!).

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Have you ever tried playing Jenga at a pub? Well neither have I…that is until last night when we all gathered at Doolin’s Irish pub for our weekly meeting 😉  Do you know how nerve-racking it is playing Jenga?! It was still really fun though!

Probably the best part of the night was when we were playing Battle of the Sexes! It was so much fun, except for the fact that there weren’t enough girls so some of the guys had to join the girls team. Unfortunately in the end, the guys team won. But I want a REMATCH. Where are all the girls when you need them? C’mon! There was a question that was asked, “where is the forbidden city located?” to which I answered ‘Vegas’….but the real answer was ‘Beijing’…oops! And now everyone is after me!

And also throughout the night, people kept guessing the amount of chocolate eggs in the jar. Some people went far as to coming up with math formulas and calculations and all that stuff. But the winner in the end was…*drumroll*…Rie! She guessed 220 and the actual amount was 222 (just two numbers off!). I wish I could have guessed.

You all know how much I love the Morrissey pub, but I actually didn’t mind trying a new place this week. And I got to say, Doolin’s Irish Pub was pretty awesome! It  has a very welcoming atmosphere and the music wasn’t too loud so we could talk. And of course the waitresses were friendly as well. But if you’re going to order food there, do NOT order their cheesy bread.

That’s it for now! If you didn’t make it last night, don’t miss out next week for even more awesome games and prizes! For those of you going to the Rockies next week, you should definitely come out because we will be going over some important information about the trip! 🙂  

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT announcement!

Two days of break from drinking is more than enough 😛 so tomorrow we will meet at Doolin’s Irish Pub for our weekly pub night! If you came out last week, you know how much fun it was playing games and winning prizes. Why not come out tomorrow to win some more? We will play BATTLE OF THE SEXES and determine which gender is superior…I think girls will win this: women power! Another game we will play is Jenga -remember playing this in your childhood? If not, find out tomorrow how awesome it is! And of course, how can we forget Cards Against Humanity? 

Also at the pub night, guess the number of M&Ms in a jar and win it! Who doesn’t love chocolate 😉  So come out tomorrow, play some games,  find out who is more intelligent, women or men?
