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!

“See you somewhere in the world again” – Janel

Friday was my last day as an INTERNeX PR-Coordinator. My time here in Vancouver has been amazing. During my time here a lot of candidates left and a lot of new ones came. It is always hard to say bye to the ones that were leaving, but it was always nice to meet all the new candidates. And now it is time for me to leave beautiful Vancouver and Canada.

When I arrived in Vancouver to start my placement I was excited and nervous at the same time. But as soon as I got to know the INTERNeX team and family I was not nervous anymore. The first candidate I met here in Vancouver was Andreas, he was the one helping me organizing my very first PuB NiGHT. It was a great PuB NiGHT and it was amazing to meet the first INTERNeX family.

After 2 months in Vancouver the new girls of the PR-team started to arrive. It was so great to meet them and it was a pleasure to work with every single one of them. Our team dynamic was amazing and everyone knew what to do. I had lots of amazing moments with you girls, thank you for being part of the team and being my friend!

I had the opportunity to meet lots of great INTERNeX candidates during the 7 months here and had so many amazing parties with all of you. My experience here in Canada wouldn’t have been the same without all of you!

I also had the opportunity to see so many great places. I went to the Rockies, Kelowna, Vancouver Island, Whistler, Squamish, San Francisco, Seattle and my family in Osseo. Tomorrow I will start a trip with one of my best friends here, Sam, we will cross New York and Quebec City of our bucket list.

I’m really thankful for the opportunity of doing my placement here in Vancouver. Tim, Simon and the rest of the INTERNeX team taught me so much and I will never forget our great times in and outside of the office.19030477_10209743262960390_3042787021812705458_n.jpg

It is sad to leave Vancouver, but as I always say: “See you guys somewhere in the world again!”

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Pint

PuB NiGHT was great again! Thank you all for coming to the Pint.

The Pint is a pub in downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means that their wings are only $4. There are also lots of TV screens to watch sports like hockey and basketball.

18448016_1565436526813604_584222969_n.jpgThe night started of great with watching the Stanley Cup play offs on the TV screens in the pub. Edmonton Oilers unfortunately lost, but we still had fun watching the game. There was a great atmosphere in the pub because of everyone watching it. For some of the INTERNeX family it was their last PuB NiGHT, which was really sad. We wrote on Andreas’ flag and made a great group picture to remember the night!

After an amazing night at the Pint we decided to go to Andreas’ favourite place in town, the Met, to do karaoke! We did some great songs together like, ‘We’re all in this together’ from High School Musical and ‘Wannabe’ from the Spice Girls. It was great to sing with such a big group and a great ending of the night!

I had an amazing night and I hope you all did too!

PR-team Adventures

18386724_1745195368829240_1548844133_nAs you guys all know we organize a lot of stuff for our INTERNeX family. PuB NiGHTS, weekly events and monthly trips, all of these are organized to make your experience here the most memorable it can be. Because of all these events we have a really nice group who not only attend our events, but also decide to go out together every now and then.

So Saturday we decided to go on a boat party. Some of us got pizza and did a few pre drinks before we headed to the boat, where we met up with the rest of you. We first sat down in the inside area, but quickly decided to go up to the deck to enjoy the view. When we took off you could hardly hear the music, so we made some awesome pictures and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

18424871_10209469088426198_1868080733_nAs soon as we had left downtown Vancouver behind us they put up the music and we spent most of the night dancing to Latin music. It was super fun and we made some great memories! After the boat party we all got in cabs and went to Studio Records for the after party.

I had an amazing night with all of you and even though this might not have been an INTERNeX event, we where there with 15+ people from INTERNeX. It was really nice partying with all of you!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Pint

It was an amazing PuB NiGHT yesterday at the Pint! Thanks to all of you for coming. I had an amazing night with all the old and new friends in the INTERNeX family!17373098_10202835704209425_1063236626_o.jpg

The Pint is a pub in Downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means that their wings in 40 different ways are only $4.50. There are also a lot of TV screens to watch sports like hockey and basketball. They have an extra downstairs area with a pool table for busy nights.

The night started off great with a lot of people. Kristina brought her Canadian flag for us to write on, as she is already leaving us in two weeks ☹! While writing on her flag, we were all chatting with each other and having lots of fun. As there were some new candidates joining the PuB NiGHT we had a good laugh about all the parties we have already had in our time here. Which was really fun because we were all remembering great and funny things that happened in those nights.

After an amazing night at the Pint with everyone, the last people that were still at the pub decided to do some karaoke at the Met. We sang a lot of different songs together, which was a great ending of the night.

I had a great night and I hope you all did too!

Queen Elizabeth Park – Experience IT Review

Yesterday we conquered the snow to visit the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park. It was very cold and we didn’t get to see much of the view, but the snow did make it into a pretty picture. Thanks to everybody who came out with us!17142375_1659777060704405_1158829939_o

We met up at the parking lot on the west side of the park. As a lot of people ended up running late thanks to all the snow coming down on us, we decided to meet up at the observatory instead (hoping there was a covered place to wait). Most of the viewing points were outside of the observatory, unfortunately we didn’t get much of a view. Luckily it was very pretty to see everything covered in a big layer of snow.

17148749_10208416120261558_413918612_oAfter making a few nice pictures outside, some of us decided to get into the observatory. We immediately started to warm up after entering this exotic area. In this place, we could discover  different kinds of plants and birds. All of them were just flying around or walking on the ground, so we had to watch our steps. When we finished our round and spotted almost all birds in the observatory, most of us went home.

Despite the snow we still had fun, but we would love to go back there when the weather is a little bit better to see the view. I hope to see all of you at PuB NiGHT!

Review: PuB NiGHT at The Distillery

Last night’s pub night started off at The Distillery and ended in Soho Billiards. So many people joined us last night and thank you all for coming; we had a really good time!

img_1202The Distillery is a bar + kitchen in Yaletown. Its Italian-American styled and part of the Yaletown Brewing Company, which is right next to The Distillery. As the name tells you, they brew their own beer. Through the windows in the back of The Distillery you can see all the barrels in the back, which is pretty cool. The Distillery and Soho Billiards are quite the contrast; The Distillery is pretty fancy and Soho Billiards is way more casual.

We had a very large area in the back with sofas and chairs, which were really comfy. We barely fit in the area since more and more people showed up. However, we managed to fit everybody in and we were all catching up on all the adventures we had and having a good time. Then Brody decided to show off some of his Chiropractor skills and made all of our necks and shoulders feel so much better.

IMG_1213.JPGAround eleven a lot of us wanted to go and play pool, so we decided to move the party to Soho Billiard, where they have loads of pool tables and two groups ended up playing at two different tables. This was my very first time playing pool, so naturally I was terrible in playing pool. It was a lot of fun though and many of you ended up staying there for a long time.

Once again you guys made my night, so thank you for that! I hope to see you again tonight at the concert or next Wednesday at PuB NiGHT!
