Review: PuB NiGHT at Mahony & Sons Burred Landing

Yesterdays PuB NiGHT was at Mahony & Sons at Canada Place and it was great! Unfortunately it was the last PuB NiGHT for some of us, but we made the best of it. Thank you guys for joining!

There are three Mahony & Sons pubs in Vancouver, all run by the same family. AtPubnight4 Canada Place they also have an outdoor terrace with amazing views over North Vancouver, but it was still a bit too chilly for that now. We always enjoy these Irish pubs, especially because they have wine Wednesdays with 50% off every bottle of wine.

It is kind of a weird time since quite some people are leaving by now, but we also have new people coming in! It was great to see three new people joined and blended in so well.

Last time we had a PuB NiGHT here it was all about the Rockies trip and I was glad to hear this topic was going over the table again since we are going again in August! It is really nice to see so many of you want to join us on this amazing trip and are already making travel plans with your buddies.

I hope you had as much fun as I did! Enjoy the sunny days that are coming now and we hope to see you at the International Jazz Festival!

PR-team Adventures

On Friday Janel had her last day at INTERNeX, so we wanted to make it a special one for her. I think we certainly did a good job and gave her a proper goodbye.

It already started on Wednesday when Janel got her first gifts from Tim. Tim bought her a cowboy hat and a flag to write on. She had to wear this cowboy hat for the rest of the week.

However, Janel got her real gifts on Friday. She once had this really good bbq lunch so she wanted to have that for her last day. Of course this had to be arranged. To distract her, we sent her with Tim to pick up the lunch. In the meantime we were making everything else ready; getting the gift, Canada tattoos and drinks. As Simon and Tess were a bit late from getting the gift, Janel had to wait in the meeting room till they were back and we all finished writing something funny on the card for her.

So you are probably wondering what Janel got as a goodbye present right? As Janel was always struggling with the pronunciation of “ bear” and always pronounced it as “beer” like a lot of us do too, INTERNeX got her a bear holding a beer. After receiving the gift we finished the day with having her last drinks in the office and we continued her goodbye party in the Blarney Stone.

We wish our former PR coordinator a lot of luck in her future career and “see you later somewhere in the world again” as she would say.

Review: PuB NiGHT at The Lamplighter

Last night’s PuB NiGHT was at the Lamplighter and it was a great night, thank you all for coming!

IMG_4225.JPG

The Lamplighter is a really nice pub in Gastown and they play Bourbon Bingo there every Wednesday. You can get the bingo sheets for free and every round you need a different pattern to win. Everyone on our table was playing and we were getting really excited about it. In the first Merle won 3 ciders and in the very last game we were even luckier, as three of us won! Marie and Iris won 19(!) shots of Bourbon for the whole table and Zack won some beer.

IMG_4228Since it was Janels last PuB NiGHT her flag was going around the table for everybody to write on and some people were passing along their notebooks to people who are leaving us soon too. After everybody had written something we decided to end PuB NiGHT in the best way possible by going to The Met. Everybody joined in to sing our favourite karaoke song “We’re all in this together”.

I think it’s safe to say Janel’s last PuB NiGHT was a good one, thanks to you guys!

Review: PuB NiGHT at 131 Water

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at 131 Water and it was great seeing all of you there! Thank you for coming!

131 Water is a kitchen and bar in Gastown. They have a big variety of games from Jenga to Cards Against Humanity, battleship, trivia and many more. During happy hour you can get the house wine and the Lucky Lager with a discounted price. Their happy hour is from 9 PM till close, which is the perfect time if you want to go out for a few drinks and perfect for our PuB NiGHT.

19073767_1781441648537945_692179830_nWe started off with playing Jenga. Some of us were very good and could get the stones out of our tower without any hesitation. I was not one of those people and always took a long time till I finished my turn. After playing many rounds of Jenga, some people started making solid houses. While they were playing with the stones, the others were telling stories about all of their coming adventures and trips and for some it was time to play Cards Against Humanity to test their humour.

It was a great night again! Hope to see you on Granville Island!

Experience IT Review – Richmond Night Market

Last weekend we went to the Richmond Night Market! It was so much fun with all of you! Thank you for coming!

The Richmond Night Market is the biggest night market in North America and it has over 500 food choices from around the world. There are also live performances, over 200 retail stalls and carnival games. It is also really close to the Bridgeport skytrain station, which makes it easy to access the market.

18983320_10158688375850231_1698533783_n.jpgWe all met at the skytrain station and walked to the market together. When we got there we had two options. The first one was to stand in line for 45 minutes and the second one was to get one ticket for 7 people and then we could skip the line. We were with 10 people so we had to get 4 more random people from the crowd to get 2 of them. This worked after asking a few people, so we luckily did not have to wait in line.

When we finally got inside we started walking to the food stands as everyone got a little hungry. There was so much choice and everybody ate something and some even tried some special treats, like deep fried mars bars, Doritos deep fried mozzarella sticks and drinks in lightbulbs as glasses. There was a lot of food that you always see on Facebook or Instagram, which was also really cool to see. After eating lots of food we strolled around the retail stands and the carnival games. It was so much fun to see people play the games and some of us tried out the mechanical bull.

I had lots of fun with you guys! I hope to see you guys on PuB NiGHT!

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!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Charles Bar

Yesterdays Pub Night was at the Charles Bar in Gastown and we had a great night again! It is a more quiet bar then we are used to, but we still had a blast and we were happy to see you all again!

The Charles Bar is located in the famous Woodward’s building. It is a V-shaped pub with lots of choices in food and drinks. There are big TV screens around the whole pub, which makes it easy to watch sports. In the weekend it is pretty busy and it has local Vancouver DJs.

I18575359_1755589474456496_262144517_ot was a great night with lots of talking and some drinks. We had lots of fun hearing your travel stories. Unfortunately it was Nicholas’ last PuB NiGHT so we wrote some nice stories about him on his Canadian Flag. It is sad to see quite some people are leaving in May, but there are also quite some new people coming in and there are so many fun PuB NiGHTS coming up!

Thank you all for last night and hopefully see you guys in Stanley Park this weekend!
