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!

Victoria Tour Guide: Schedule

On Canada Day we are planning a trip to Victoria, the capital city of BC. With this blogpost we would like to inform you a bit more about the trip.

We will be meeting at 7.30 at Tsawwassen terminal where we will take the ferry to Swartz Bay. We will be taking the early ferry of 8 AM to Victoria, as it takes a while to get to Victoria itself. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for buying your own ferry ticket. From Swartz Bay we will take the bus to Victoria, which takes us about an hour. When we arrive in Victoria, you all have free time to do one of the optional activities or to go to the free music festival. To give you a better overview, we made a schedule which you can see below. The schedule is an estimate, which means that we could also arrive earlier or later in Victoria.

14790187003_c6c962858e_o

Schedule
07.30 AM – meeting at Tsawwassen terminal
08.00 AM – ferry to Swartz Bay
09.30 AM – arrival at Swartz Bay
10.00 AM – bus to Victoria
11.15 AM – arrival in Victoria
11.15 AM – free time

 

We would like to remind you that the fireworks in Victoria start at 10.15 PM and that the last ferry back is at 9 PM. If you would like to see them then it might be a better option to stay the night, like some of us are doing. Others are taking a ferry back around 5 PM to see the fireworks in Vancouver. Otherwise, you would need to take the bus back around 7.30 PM to be able to catch the last ferry to Vancouver.

We hope you are all as excited about the trip as we are. See you on PuB NiGHT!

Experience IT Review – Granville Island

Yesterday the INTERNeX family went to Granville Island. Thank you for coming!

Granville Island is a small island next to downtown Vancouver. You can go there by aquataxi or by bus. The main attraction on Granville Island is the public market where you can get delicious food and fresh groceries. Once there you can also choose to go to the Granville Island Brewery, one of the first breweries in Vancouver. There you can get good tasters.

19197638_10209199577487499_160227860_oIt was great weather for a Granville Island day; the sun was shining and lots of people were sitting outside enjoying the food they bought. A lot of the outside terraces were open, which made it much more lively on the streets of Granville Island. We first went to the public market, where we did a quick round. It took a long time before we found the best deal, as there are a lot of stands where they sell veggies and fruits. After we checked out several stands, I decided to be a bit more healthy and bought some nice and big strawberries. Then we checked out all the food stands of Granville Island. I keep getting amazed by their big variety and it therefore took a while before I got my bratwurst. When we filled our stomaches, we decided to go to downtown to do some shopping for the summer.

I hope you all had a great weekend and see you at PuB NiGHT!

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!

Experience IT review – Jericho Beach

Since the weather was so amazing this weekend we decided to have a relaxing day at the beach instead of paintballing. Thank you all for coming!

IMG_3887.JPGWe decided to go to Jericho Beach. This beach is a little further away from downtown and therefore way less busy then English Bay or Kitsilano Beach. It’s perfect if you just want to relax. If you don’t like the beach that much there is always the option to go lay in the park right next to the beach.

We spend most of our afternoon relaxing, listening to music and chatting, the way you should spend your day at the beach. Some of you where brave enough to go out for a swim and said the water was really nice. After we all got a little sunburned and tired from doing nothing all day, we decided it was time to go home and had to say our final goodbyes to Merle, as she left on Sunday.

I had a great day and I hope to see you all on PuB NiGHT!
