Grey Cup Festival Parade and cheerleader competition

This Sunday, November 30th, a big event will take place in Vancouver. It’s the Canadian Football League’s championship, the Grey Cup, which is coming to Vancouver. This will be celebrated with lots of events in several places around downtown. This Saturday a great parade will celebrate Canadian football with marching bands and much more. Unlike some of the other events leading up to the Grey Cup Championship, it won’t cost you a fortune to watch this parade… in fact it’s for free! 🙂

We will meet up in front of the Joey Burrard Grill/Lounge at 10am. Joey Burrard is situated only 500 metres walk from Vancouver City Centre Station.The parade finishes at 12pm at Dunsmuir Street and Granville Street but we’ll move on to watch the Grey Cup cheerleader competition at Vancouver Convention Centre, West Building, Exibition Hall C. Cheerleaders from across the country are competing against each other. And there’s free entrance!

If you’re not able to make it till 10am, just show up in front of the Olympic Cauldron / 2010 Olympic Flame (Coal Habour) right next to the convention centre at 11:00am.

Review: Pub Night @ The Beaver

Yesterday we had our great weekly pub night. This time we visited The Beaver on Granville Street. We got a small table but it wasn’t a problem to fit all of us people into this small space 🙂 Most of us tried out some of the nice food. The beers weren’t bad either and all of the locally brewed bottled beers were served for quite reasonable prices… only $5.50. A lot of people were fitted into this little pub, and of course they were all ready for the bingo evening. The Beaver is situated at the ground level of the SameSun Hostel, so there are always a lot of different activities going on at this pub. Of course we were also up for playing bingo. Aaaand this time we were much luckier than last time we played. Yep, that’s right we did actually win something. We won a good deal of beer but it would have been nice to win one more time, since it took a very good deal of beer to share between all of us.

Thanks for a very good evening. It was great to see so many of you defying to let the cold weather make you stay at home. But for sure the temperature inside the pub wasn’t bad either 🙂 And looking forward to see those of you guys who are going on the Portland trip… It’ll be awesome!

Review: Pub Night @ Doolin’s Irish Pub

Yesterday we had another great pub night. This time we went to Doolin’s Irish Pub. Funny to have a talk with you guys about different accents and dialects. This was Frederikke’s and Alexander’s last pub night, so it’s was good to see both “old” and new faces showing up. As you can see on the picture a special surprise was given to Frederikke… of course a Canadian flag with greetings from a lot of INTERNeXers. A special thanks to Alexander and Johanna for preparing this surprise. And thanks to both Alexander and Frederikke for your participation in so many pub nights and INTERNeX activities. Wish you guys the best in the future, whereever you go and whatever you decide to do.

Thanks to all of you for another good evening, and hope to see you for a good time at Extreme Air Park on Saturday at 1pm. You can sign up here.

And you can still sign up for the Portland trip. Don’t think twice… this will be an awesome trip 🙂 Get more information and sign up here + make your payment at the INTERNeX office (only $229 + $30).

Review: Pub Night @ The Famous Warehouse

Yesterday we had another great pub night. This time we went to The Famous Warehouse. We had to wait a little in front of the entrance before we could get seated but it didn’t really matter… there’s always something happening in the streets of Vancouver, always some entertaining people to watch.

The food at the restaurant was ok and definitely not bad for the price of 4.95$. And the beers weren’t bad either. But one dish wasn’t enough for most of us, so we just ordered another… always curious to try how the next dish was going to taste. Soo, because all of our dishes were added to one receipt, the receipt almost looked like Santa’s long list of gifts to give to the children… or just a very expensive night out. But of course we payed separately. And even though most of us had more than one dish it wasn’t really that expensive.

This was also a pub night to welcome our new Internex pr-intern Sophie. Some of you already know her since she has been staying in Vancouver for about six weeks already. Anyway, hope you’ll also give a great welcome to our next pub night. And of course this pub night was also a little celebration of my (Henrik) birthday.

Thanks a lot to all you you guys who showed up. Looking forward to see you for our next pub night!
