PuB NiGHT Review: The Dime On Granville

At the last PuB NiGHT we checked out one of the new places-to-be in Vancouver – the Dime On Granville. It is located in the heart of Downtown at the Granville Street. The Dime is part of the Warehouse Group. The Warehouse Group has established itself as one Canada’s most popular restaurants for its tasty food, refreshing drinks, and energetic staff. The best part is, that every item on the  food menu costs just $5,95. 

On Wednesday the INTERNeX gang checked out this new Pub and now we can for sure say: approved. Great location, delicious food and good drinks.

After the extended weekend because of the Canada Day on Monday, we were even more excited about the next PuB NiGHT to go partying again. Not to mention that this week thirteen new candidates started an internship, a volunteer etc. by INTERNeX. 

The night started off with some food and drinks. Our waitress just kept running with pitchers of beers, mojitos and cocktails for all new people arriving.

As time went on our tables at the Dime filled more and more. At 9 pm there were already 20 people. So many of you showed up, new and old faces – it couldn’t have been any better. When everyone finished the last beer, cider or cocktail it was time to say goodbye to the Dime. Some of us extended the evening, as it has become a tradition, at the Yale Saloon.

To sum it all up. The last PuB NiGHT united good food, drinks and deep conversations. Besides, we were able to welcome a lot newcomers at the INTERNeX gang. It was nice to get to know some of you better. I am sure we will have much more great PuB NiGHTs here in Vancouver. 

I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! Now I am looking forward to see many of you on Saturday for our hiking excursion at the Lynn Canyon park.

Review: PuB NiGHT at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village. It was great to see you all there. Thank you for joining us!

Mahony and Sons is a pub with three locations: Canada Place, UBC and Olympic village. They use a lot of wood in the pubs itself, which gives you an Irish feeling. However, at both Canada Place and Olympic village you can choose to sit outside too. Both locations have amazing views from their patio and are therefore definitely worth checking out. On Wednesdays wines are on special, which means that all bottles are discounted by 50%, so it is a perfect location for the wine fans among us.

18716442_10209597815964306_1927399038_nWe already went to Mahony and Sons at Canada Place before, so decided to go to Olympic village this time where we got a nice spot outside at the terrace. A lot of people were having their own bottles of wine, as we had to make good use of the wine special. As it was already the last PuB NiGHT for some of us, everybody took their books and soon a lot of people were writing. While everyone was writing, I had time to catch up with everyone about the long weekend and it was great hearing all these stories. Once it got dark, we all took our chance to make pictures of the great view of downtown.

I hope you all had a great time, because I certainly did! See you all at Jericho beach or on next week’s PuB NiGHT!

Experience IT Review – Stanley Park bike ride

Last weekend we went for a Dutch adventure around Stanley Park. It was great seeing all of you again. Thank you for coming!

Stanley Park is one of Vancouver’s icons and probably one of the first things you go to when you get to Vancouver. There are a lot of places you can explore within the park. All of these places are hard to discover in one day if you go by foot. However, this weekend we all became Dutch and went for a bike ride in Stanley Park. This gave us the opportunity to cover more ground and to see more of Stanley Park.

IMG_3796We were really lucky with the weather and it was just the perfect day to do something outside. You could see that a lot of people were having the same idea, as it was really busy on the bike path around Stanley park. We got our bikes at Spokes bike rental and biked from there to the seawall. There we started our journey and biked over the seawall around Stanley Park. Soon we reached our first stop where we had a great view over downtown Vancouver. Here we started a small photoshoot with our bikes. After we took the pictures we continued to Brockton point lighthouse where we got our second stop. Once we got the pictures, we got back onto our bikes and passed several nice viewings such as the Shiwash rock and Third beach. As I am always quite unlucky, it was no surprise that my bike broke and I had to leave all of you from there on. Luckily, you were more lucky and went to the Lost Lagoon. After that you brought your bikes back and went for an ice cream at Dairy Queen to cool off again.

Thank you all for bringing a bit of the Netherlands to Vancouver for us and I hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT!

Review: Pub Night @ The Lennox Pub

Yesterday we had yet another good pub night.

This time we met at the Irish pub the Lennox Pub in downtown Vancouver. The weather was a bit cooler compared to the nice sunny and hot weather the last couple weeks but fortunately there was plenty of space for us inside the cozy Irish pub. It was nice to see all of you who showed up for the pub night. A couple of us chose to try out the pub’s food while others just tried out some of the pub’s tasty and delicious selection of beers. We were lucky that the pub had a few special offers on beers this evening.

While getting something to drink and eat we had a really good time chatting about various topics. It was great to hear how everybody is doing in their different projects,  and what kind experiences and adventures everybody’s had in Canada as well as in other places around the world. Those who met up but didn’t have the chance to go to our Rockies trip also got the chance to hear a bit about some of the very good moments from this amazing trip. We’re definitely looking forward to our next great trip, and we hope to see just as many joining the trip. It will be awesome!

It would be great to even more people turn up for our next pub night. We’re definitely looking forward to yet another good evening in good company next Wednesday.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Vancouver is famous for being one of the most livable cities in the world. Everybody who has been there adores this city and cannot stop listing special or awesome things. One of these things itself is the restaurant Cloud 9.

To take advantage of Vancouver’s natural beauty you have to make your way to the Empire Landmark Hotel, the former Sheraton Landmark. It is in the West End of Downtown Vancouver and with its 42 stories it is the tallest free standing building in Vancouver. So besides that, what makes this place so special? It is also one of Vancouver’s attractions because of its top floor restaurant. The Cloud 9 is a revolving restaurant, which means that its rooms are designed in a way that offers people a panoramic view over the city without having to leave their seats.

Even though the prices are not the lowest in town, you can just go for drinks or dessert; enjoying a piano-bar atmosphere and the best view of Van City. Some people are so excited about the whole thing, they even say just go there instead of the Vancouver Lookout. Go later in the evening and they’ll often let you nurse your drink for as long as you like.

 

See you soon and enjoy the view,

Annika
