Pub-Night Review

Another Wednesday has come and gone and what a fun night it has been again to see everyone but also so many new faces at Pub Night! 

IMG_0328.jpgThis week we went to the Two Parrots. They had reserved a whole gallery by the windows for us and created a new sort of space for us – a circular table setting in which many of us started out with some great food and drinks. Having become a dark beer enthusiast lately, I tried a Stanley Park Brewery special which had the greatest taste – a combination of the typical dark beer flavour, stripped off the extreme bitterness some dark beers might have, in addition with a nice taste of sweetness. Lovely, especially in combination with the very Canadian dish of Poutine!

As the evening went by, it was great to see so many of our Newbies joining, getting introduced to the group and mingling with everyone – I actually heard that some of them ended up on a bull that night and were also properly introduced to the Yale tradition by some of our “senior” participants. All in all a good night with lots of drinks, food and lovely chats! ☺Please be reminded of our very important Pub Night
next week, which will lead us to the Cambie, which is not only Vancouver’s oldest bar, but also a historic setting for legendary Beer Pong tournaments. Next week, especially, the motto will be: All in, we can only win!!

Se y’all very soon, have a wonderful week! ☺

– Felicitas

New ‘Kids’ on the Blog

Half the week is already over and once again it’s finally the day of Pub-Night.
And Wednesday, also means you get to meet the new INTERNeXer, that joined us at the beginning of this week. 
IMG_0289
And this week you might have to take some notes, as we got 5(!!!) new people joining. 
Therefore lets not loose anymore time and let’s talk about our Newbies! As a group, I would like to refer to them as “the Islanders” (I’ll explain that later on).

The bright smiling sunshine on the right hand side, is called Anton. Anton is 19 years old and from Germany. He actually made a very brave step moving from a small village to our beautiful Vancouver, intending to find out if he is made for the city life. And yes, some of you be like “Vancouver isn’t even that big”. But as a person moving here from a small village myself, I absolutely get it. And I think it is quite a decision to make. So welcome from one ‘villager’ to another. I hope you will have a wonderful time here and you will hopefully fall in love with the city, as fast as we did.

Moving on to Maria. With her sweet 18 years, she is the youngest one out of the Islanders. Luckily, tonight, your age won’t stop you from meeting the INTERNeXer, as the Two Parrots welcome minors as well. Maria was looking for an english speaking country to improve her language skills. Because of a family recommendation she decided to come to Vancouver and from here, this lady is ready to go on some adventures, like traveling to Seattle and doing Bungee Jumping (soo cool!).  

Next one in line is Lina. She has been dreaming of this for such a long time. But because of university and life always getting in her way, she wasn’t able to do it earlier than now. But hey, I am actually very glad it worked out this exact way. Otherwise we might have never met you, so let’s call it faith. Plus she got to finish her masters in psychology, which is (just after meeting us) also a pretty good turnout :P. She also mentioned, that she is here to meet new people and is open to new experiences – well Lina, it seems like you are a perfect fit to our group then :).
 
The young men on her left hand side is Felix and yes you might have guessed it – he is also from Germany. And I get the feeling, that we can learn a lot from this one, as he proved to have a very creative mindset! The reason why Felix is here, is everything but one of the regular stories you get to hear.
As we all have had a job interview before, we know the struggle that comes with it.  Technically it’s all about presenting your best possible self and Felix here, is clearly a master in that! As he got asked why is only applying for the job in 2020 and not 2019, he clearly couldn’t admit that he might have missed the time slot for it. So mentioning a planned gap-year seemed like the perfect excuse instead. And once it was said, he was being a men of his word, got in a plane and now joined the INTERNeX gang for a practicum! Felix is very interested in sports and can’t wait to see the Super Bowl. I promise you, you will meet our enthusiasts tonight, that will be very happy to watch it with you! 
Last but not least is Theresa. Guess where she is from? … Ha, got ya – she is from Austria. Anyways Theresa here also just graduated and is now gaining some practical experiences here in beautiful British Columbia. Theresa didn’t really feel like working yet, so she said goodbye to her previous job and to Austria, packed her bag and made her way across the ocean to have an incredible time here. And fun fact, I think she has the coolest voice ever! I am sorry, for pointing that out like this, but I love it!

Anyways as we where sitting together getting to know each other, it turned out all of these guys have Vancouver Island on their bucket list. As this is a classic, please pass on helpful tipps and tricks as you have already been there or simply sign up to the adventure-bus of the ‘islanders’ to see Vancouver Island together with them.
However now that the snow is gone, there won’t be anything getting in the way to get together at tonights Pub-Night at the Two Parrots.
To the Newbies: don’t be shy, everybody is already very excited to meet you! 
Have a wonderful day/night. 
See you soon, 
Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Isn’t it weird how the night from Wednesday to Thursday always feels so much shorter than any other weeknight?! 
IMG_5648.JPGAnyways even though I am bit tired, I had a pretty good night last night again! 🙂
We went to the La Casita, which doesn’t just sound Mexican, but actually took us on a little trip down to Mexico right away. The music, the decorations, the drinks – everything was just perfectly getting you in the right vibe. 
So after some fantastic food, we made our way through the margarita menu. So that even our Danish margarita queen found something new to experience ;P. 
But there is still one massive question that has been bothering me ever since and unfortunately I couldn’t find an answer last night … so when do I get sugar and when do I get salt on the edge of my margarita glass?? So if anyone could please get me out of this sinister hole of cluelessness, please leave me a message. IMG_5638.JPG
Anyways Pub-Night wouldn’t be Pub-Night, if we wouldn’t have moved on to a different location to continue the celebrations of togetherness. Out of the two big favourites, we chose to go to the Cambie this time. Sorry Yale – Saloon, but you will probably see us soon enough anyways.  
A very exhausting game of Pac-Man, brought me closer to nervous break down than I ever wanted to be. Maybe it’s not really who we play against (literally any game), maybe it’s the Cambie itself, that brings out the most competitive side in everyone :D. (Careful, this was an inside joke and might test your loyalty to this blog).
However, afterwards we moved on to the Dance Floor and since we’ve got it all to ourselves, “dancing like nobody watches you”, wasn’t a phrase anymore :D. 
And I won’t lie, we learned some incredible and unique dance moves to show off at the next club visit. Usually you get three types of people on the dane floor. Type 1 would be the “right-tip-left-tip” type, so more the classical “I like to dance, but I am not going wild tonight” kind of A1488CFB-1F64-47F7-B4C9-BA97CC3DF34C.JPGdancer. Type two, which is the “move-your-hips” type, clearly knowing what they are doing and actually looking good doing it, simply born with rhythm in their blood. And then you get the “getting-jealous-looks-because-their-dancing-looks-like-so-much-fun-but-you-get-funny-looks-for-doing-it” type of dancers. (Wow what a handy and short name, well done Nadja.. getting right to the point here!).  
So I think all of us just transformed into type number three and honestly I don’t think I can ever go back from there! 😀
Thank you guys for honouring me with your presence :D. 
See you next week! 
Cheers,

How was your Weekend?

The first full week of January is about to start, and this means for most of you – let’s get back to work!
Let’s do it guys! 

This weekend the INTERNeX crew went to the Stanley Park Brewery. Located right in Stanley Park (as the name might have spoilered already), this very romantic, beautiful place provided us a beautiful evening. 

IMG_5613.JPGWe got to eat a fantastic dinner and of course got try out some different sort of beers brewed right there. One fly included 4 different kinds of beers, which you got to choose from a menu of 16 different beers. A variety I was clearly overwhelmed with. Whereas others actually made  logical decision based on the very fancy descriptions for every beer, I sticked to trusting the waiter with all my heart or just going for wild, slightly random picks. Cleary I am not a professional beer taster yet, even tho this little fancy glasses made you feel like one.  However, have you ever tried Coffee-beer? I just loved it, so in case you don’t know what to choose, this is definitely something I can recommend. And trust me, I actually sounds wilder than it tastes. 

After the dinner we went on to The Cambie, where we went back to the beer-classics and had some nice chats, while listening to a bit strange mix of music.
Thank you guys for a lovely Saturday!   

Next weekend we will be playing Lasertag, so whoever isn’t afraid to face my very professional ninja-skills is more than welcome to sign up for it on Facebook. And yes, once again  you will have to agree to this very huge and intense commitment of clicking the going button on Facebook (I know I am asking a lot here), if you want to be part of this battle of a century. 

If you have any question you can always message us or ask me at this weeks Pub-Night at the La Casita!

Have a wonderful week, 

Cheers

What to do on the Weekend?

The feeding has come to an end, or with other word, the holidays are eventually over.
I hope everyone had a fabulous start into 2020. If you had any New Years Resolutions, I am very sorry it didn’t work out. If you still have them, good luck ;-). 

Anyways, the first weekend of the year is coming up and I’d say let’s make the best out of it to set the year right from the very beginning!
This Saturday our INTERNeX family (we celebrated Christmas together, I’d say we are a family now :D), is going to Stanley Park! And not just anywhere but to the very well-known Brewery. And just as you do in a Brewery, we are gonna have a little Beer tasting there. And even if you are not 19 yet, you are more than welcome to join and watch us drinking beer. No I am joking, of course there are going to be non-tipsy making alternatives for you :). 81590461_10157832441207103_8936653467716419584_n.jpg
If you decide on joining, you want to be quick on clicking on going on Facebook, as we only have two seats left.
Besides that, here are some more inspirations for the upcoming weekend:
If you are planning on going for a wild night on Saturday, you might want to consider the MIA nightclub. They will be hosting the ‘Rave for Cancer’, which means fundraising for the Young Adult Cancer Society. I think this is a very cool and important thing and should remind us on how lucky we are ourselves! The only problems our peers should be facing is stuff like the previous breakup, the unwanted twinning with that girl in the club (crashing, I know) or the failed uni-exam. Okay well, my examples might be not the best here, but what I am trying to say it – be grateful guys and go and support the ones who aren’t as lucky! 

If you just want to do something less active and more laid back on Sunday, the IndieFlicks Film Festival might be just what you’ve been looking for. There will be deep, meaningful .. (list continuous..) short film from all around the world.
So get out there and have a beautiful weekend!  

Cheers,
