PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

“Am I a woman?” – “Am I old?” – “Am I an actor?” – “Am I married?” Those and other questions were asked and discussed during yesterday’s PuB NiGHT. Sounds weird? No worries, it was all part of a game and in the end, we all figured out our new identities.

131 Water was yesterday’s place-to-be called. It is a cozy pub located in the lovely streets of Gastown. Big plus: you can find shelves full of games which you can just take and use during your time in the pub. Of course, we took that chance and played a round with Cards Against Humanity and “Who am I?”. Luckily, the happy hour just started in the perfect moment to get some delicious snacks and shots. When Shrek, Justin Timberlake and Bart’s mum were finally exposed, it was time to head to the Met.

So, what should we sing tonight? No matter, if it was the own choice or someone else filled in a paper; all challenges were taken as professionally as usual. The all-time classics, but also a Swedish duet set the Met on fire. It was fun!

Good that the sun is shining today, so you can hide your eyes behind sunglasses 😉

Enjoy your day and see you on Saturday in the escape room.

How was your weekend?

Rise and shine, a new week has just started. That means getting back to work and look forward to the next weekend. But before we talk about the next weekend, I will first tell how my weekend was.

On Friday my weekend began with ice-skating at Robson Square. Since I am Dutch, I enjoyed the time on the ice. After a while, we decided it was time to get off the ice and do some real sport: dancing in the club. And that is exactly what we did. We first drank a beer with my 62-year-old neighbor, since it was her birthday the day before. When we learned her a lot of new things she might or might not wanted to know, we moved to the Yale Saloon for some line dancing and bull riding.

The next day my alarm went off. What? On Saturday? Yes, it was time to get my parents from the airport. I went with them to their new temporary place to get a drink before I showed them around on Granville Island. We had a really nice dinner and because they were beginning to fall asleep because of their jetlag, it was the right time for them to head back to the hotel. That also meant time for me to meet the others to go to a hardstyle party. Everyone really enjoyed this music (“How do you have to dance on this?”). After a while, I headed home to prepare myself for a busy Sunday.

Then Sunday was there. I went back to my parents’ hotel to have breakfast. When we walked out of the hotel, the hop on hop off bus was waiting for us to get in. We drove around Vancouver and saw Gastown, the lookout tower, fly over Canada and Stanley Park. At the end of the day, the bus brought us back to the hotel. We did some games (which I won of course) and had dinner. I invited them to my Jacuzzi on the roof to end the day relaxing.

I can say I had a really nice weekend. I am already counting down to the next one. But first, there will be a pub night in between where you can tell me all about your adventures during your weekend. So I hope to see you all at TAPshack this Wednesday!

How was your weekend?

The weekend is over already? I swear it was Monday like 5 seconds ago. Ok new week, let’s do this. But before I am ready for you, let’s look back to the weekend first.

26909292_1591413390947326_105795224_oFriday around weekend o’clock many people showed up at my place for some games. We played zombies, what do you meme, chug and bus driver. Before we realised it was already 11 pm, which means less games and more club. So we moved to Roxy and danced the night away.

Good morning afternoon, time to get up and go to the PNE. There we watched a lot of light sculptures during the Chinese Lantern Festival. We walked around for two hours, ate some food and watched a lot of performances. After the festival, we headed over to the bourbon for more games.

I hope your weekend was a good one too. Tell me all about it next PuB NiGHT at the Blarney Stone. See you there!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

We’ve come a long way from where we began. Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. So sad this was already the last PuB NiGHT of the year. No, just kidding. We will be back next year with new pubs, games, bingo, beers and karaoke.

25674687_1566724663416199_2038943092_o

This PuB NiGHT was a good one to close this year with. The game Cards Against Humanity was on the table again. And because we had a birthday girl called Linda at our table, we sang Happy Birthday in every language. After the cheap happy hours beers it was time to go. As we already warmed up our throats with the Happy Birthday song, we decided to continue our beautiful singing in the karaoke bar.

Everybody sang some nice songs. Or at least they tried. After all the fun was done we decided to go to get some food. Luckily for us, the DJ was hungry as well. So he brought Rebecka and I with his car to the Roxy. We drank one more beer before eating the very delicious chicken wings. Then, later than expected, the night was really over now.

Thank you all for joining us this PuB NiGHT. Because you will miss the karaoke so much next Wednesday, we will be there singing our favourite Christmas songs all night long. Yes Sebastian, you can sing Lady Gaga again if you want. Happy Christmas and I hope to see you at our NYE party!

PuB NiGHT XXL Review: The Bourbon

Thank you all for joining our PuB NiGHT XXL last night at The Bourbon.

The Bourbon is a bar located in Gastown. It offers their customers the top DJ’s in the city, great drinks, great staff and an all round good time. Normally they don’t have DJ’s on Wednesday, but since we had a big group yesterday they arranged a DJ especially for us.

23698691_1532916680130331_797818645_oOur evening started early in the evening when we had a dinner with Dutch students from NHTV, the school Bart and I are attending as well, after the dinner we invited them all to The Bourbon to join us for PuB NiGHT.

After arriving at The Bourbon we had some drinks and played some games. After having enough drinks we decided to bring the Dutchies and our candidates to The Met for some karaoke and cheap drinks.

We had a blast with all of you! Hope to see you all at the Canucks game this Saturday!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

Thank you all for joining us last night at our PuB NiGHT at 131 Water!

131 Water is a pub located in Gastown with a lot of different board and card games. They also have happy hour every Wednesday from 9 pm until closing time, which makes it perfect for our PuB NiGHT.

After work I first had dinner and afterwards met up with Maxine, Roslyn, Rieke and Ruairidh for some drinks.

23468467_1526196757468990_1383807850_o.jpgAfter the drinks it was time to go to the pub. Once we arrived in the PuB we ordered some food and drinks and started to play the game “ Cards against Humanity”. After a lot of beer and laughter we decided to end our night at of course The Met for some karaoke.

But it was not a normal karaoke night since it was the DJ’s Birthday so we of course sang Happy Birthday and some more songs.

I’m looking forward to see you all on Saturday for the escape room!

How was your weekend?

My weekend was great! Thanks to you! You made this weekend a weekend I will remember. Everyone survived, except our new friend Bob. Are you curious what we all did in Whistler? Good! Keep reading and you will find out.

It was an early Saturday morning. Time to get up and prepare myself for a fun weekend. We took the bus and drove a beautiful road all the way up to Whistler. Right after check-in it was already time to go to the bungee jump office. We drove with a van into the mountains where we stopped at a bridge. This is it, there is no way back now. We nervously waited on the bridge till it was our turn to jump from it. I got even more nervous when it was my turn to jump. I still remember the instructor saying: “Just look at the treetops and try to catch them”. So I did. Without thinking I jumped and a second later my view went from the treetops to the river underneath me. At that time I realized how high this was. Those were the most terrifying seconds of my life. Then I felt the rope that broke my fall and I felt so relieved and free. I did it! After everybody jumped and saw their pictures we went back to the apartments.

We decided to do a more relaxing thing now, so we decided to go in the hot tub. While the rest of the group was in a minus 32 degrees room to taste some vodka, we were swimming in a 32 degrees hot tub. There have to be some difference. When we went back to the apartments, we made some delicious spaghetti and did some fun games. When the time was ready, we decided to explore Whistler village to check out the clubs. We went to Tommy Africa’s, a small but fun club were we enjoyed ourselves on the dance floor, in the pole or at the bar.

IMG-20171029-WA0019_previewNext day, everybody woke up happy and full of energy. Maxine and Marvin made us some really tasty eggs. After breakfast we went to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre to learn all about these two different cultures. We watched a movie, did the tour and made a bracelet out of wood. When the tour was finished we went to the village to get some lunch. The last few hours in Whistler we played the Scavenger Hunt Game. Besides people proposing strangers, doing a dramatic earthquake scene, dancing the Macarena, earning money as a street musician and doing a breakdance on the street, nothing weird happened. Unfortunately, time was already there to go back to the bus.

I hope you enjoyed the Whistler trip as much as I did. Thanks again for being part of this experience, it wouldn’t be that fun without you. You all get the greetings from Bob as well. There will be no pub night at Wednesday, but I hope to see you all tomorrow at the Halloween party!
