PuB NiGHT Review: Portside Pub

Thank you all for joining us last night for the PuB NiGHT at the Portside Pub!!

The Portside Pub is located in Gastown and the management is mostly from the East Coast of Canada. Because of this they have an East Coast cuisine and a lot of different kind of beers, from local drafts to imported drafts and cider.

22879114_1747054875335984_1701622799_oThe pub looked really cool because it looks like you are inside of a ship. We were lucky yesterday because there was live music all night. We had some nice beers and cocktails and unfortunately it was the last PuB NiGHT for Billy and Lucas.

And to follow the INTERNeX tradition we ended up in The Met to sing some amazing songs and to celebrate the last PuB NiGHT for some of us in a good and fun way. Bart sang the song “Ding Ding Dong” and also the songs “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Please Don’t Stop The Music” were played.

We had so much fun and we are looking forward to see everybody on Saturday for the amazing Whistler trip!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Black Frog

Thank you all for joining us at the Black Frog last night for our weekly PuB NiGHT. It was really nice to see so many of you there!

The Black Frog is a really cozy pub located in Gastown. They have daily food specials; daily tap specials and they show sport matches on the big screen.

After the Black Frog we of course went to the karaoke bar where we sang some songs and played some Ping-Pong.

Thanks for joining us last night and hope to see you all this Saturday during our Halloween Shopping event!

How was your weekend?

What do Granville, Chinese Garden, Playland, Bourbon and Koerners Pub have in common? They all have a ‘N’ in the word. Yes, that’s true. But they also have another thing in common. I visited all these places this weekend. Curious what I did there? Find out in the new ‘How was your weekend?’ blog post.

 

22501126_10212216658803668_742330225_nFriday around four o’clock people slowly were showing up in Oktoberfest style at the office. We played some German music to get in the mood for the Oktoberfest party. When it was 6 o’clock, it was time to go for the real work and we went off to Koerners Pub at UBC to have a nice Oktoberfest. We drank beers in big cups, sang along with music and danced at the outside stage.

Saturday I woke up. Barely. I knew exactly what I was going to do this day: Nothing! Laying in bed all day watch some Netflix. But when the night arrived, I had to get changed for some more drinks. Because it was the last night for Lara, we went to the Bourbon to celebrate she leaves. Just kidding, I will miss you. We played some beer pong and pool. After all a nice night.

2017-10-16 16.50.47_previewOn Sunday morning we went to the Halloween parade. We had perfect places underneath a heater and we got ourselves some food and drinks. We not only saw scary things, but also a lot of random things. From Chinese dragons to ghost busters, we saw it all. After the parade Lucas and I went to the Chinese Gardens. We learned all about the Yin and Yang of every little detail in the garden. In the night we went to the Fright Nights at Playland. We went into the attractions and haunted houses. I thought they wouldn’t scare me, but I was wrong about that part. In the haunted houses I scared a few times. After trying a BeaverTail we went home. Also had a nice weekend? Share your story at the next PuB NiGHT.

PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamp Lighter

“BOURBON BINGO!” We only had the chance to yell that once. Lucky Saskia won a free pitcher of beer. Despite of not winning other prices, we had so much fun doing the bingo.

22494471_1499849560103710_1576227169_o

The Lamp Lighter is a nice big pub in the heart of Gastown. Every Wednesday they organise a free bourbon bingo where you can win a lot of prizes, like beers, shots and gift cards. They play a lot of nice music and you can request songs at the DJ as well.

We were happy to see a lot of people showing up and all our reserved tables were filled. We continued the night at the karaoke bar, where we sang great surprise songs like Scatman. Thank you for that, I will remember it. See you this Sunday at the Halloween parade at Granville Street.

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

Everybody who joined PuB NiGHT yesterday, thank you very much! We had a lot of fun.

22119535_1486993444722655_422819170_o

The 131 Water pub is famous for their games and cheap drinks. And we made use of that! People were playing ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Cards against Humanity’. During the games we enjoyed the happy hour deals from 9 pm till 12 am. The pub is located in a very nice location in Gastown, close to the Metropole and because of that we sang some songs afterwards in this karaoke bar. We closed the night with some food and went home.

Now it’s time to mentally prepare ourselves and our livers for the pub-crawl this Saturday. See you!

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 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!
