Review: Thanksgiving dinner

Yesterday we went to the pub the Irish Heather for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. We meet up inside the pub where we could take shelter from the pouring rain outside… Finally the rain came to Vancouver and the city lived up to its reputation as Raincouver. But the rain definitely didn’t take the good mood away from the crowd gathering inside the Irish Heather. Before getting seated we had the chance to have a little chat until the chef rang the bell and the dinner was served. Everybody was seated at one long table, which made it possible to have a chat with people you never met before.

The dinner was really great! It included mashed potatoes, and a pie stuffed with turkey and other kinds of nice fillings. And on top we also got beers specifically selected for the turkey dinner. Really nice to get some nice food in good company. It was good to hear that you guys are interested in the Portland trip. Remember that you still have a chance to sign up for this awesome trip. Just visit the INTERNeX office to sign up and pay in cash for the trip… we’re open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm. Also remember that we’re warming up to Halloween with our costume shopping next Saturday. Look for more information here. And to finish off the month of October we’re dressing up in our costumes for a Halloween party on Friday, October 31st. Nobody really voted for a preferred place but it’s our feeling that you’re more into the cheaper alternative… for sure this will be great too! We will find a place to go.

You can see a few more pictures from the Thanksgiving dinner here.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Halloween Shopping

Since you hopefully all survived the plenty of turkey this weekend, it’s time to prepare you for a big Halloween party. Only three more weeks left till this amazing event.
So let’s get ready for Halloween by shopping some crazy and fancy Halloween costumes next Saturday, October 18.
At the BooLaLa you’ll be able to buy and also to rent costumes. So you don’t have to buy, if  you don’t have enough space in your luggage left. But if I think about it….. it would be pretty cool to wear the costume while arriving back home and to scare your family and friends. UHAHAHAHA…..
We’ll meet up at 3 pm in front of BooLaLa on Saturday. BooLaLa is located in North-Vancouver, only 11 minutes from the seabus station by foot. Click here for the map.
North-Vancouver is part of zone 2, but no worries at the weekend and on weekdays after 6:30 pm you’re also able to go there with a zone 1 ticket.
If you would like to have a look at the costumes BooLala offers, click here.
Join the event here.

Let’s get in a terrifying Halloween mood by shopping some costumes on Saturday.
Hope to see many of you there.

Smart Saver

Smart saver Sundaaay again. Time to safe some money guys.

That’s easier said than done. It’s getting cold outside, so the free stuff like walking through the beautiful nature is not that attractive anymore. And of course hockey season started, so no tickets for the cheap hockey pre-season available anymore. Tickets for the Canucks starts from 70$, that’s pretty much.
Buuut no worries. We have a really great alternative for you!!
…….Vancouver GIANTS…..!!!!
Tickets for the Vancouver Giants cost between 19.50$ and 24$. So how does that sound???

As you can imagine Vancouver Giants are not such good players as the Canucks, but you get an entertainment, which is at least as impressive as a Canucks game. The Giants are playing more aggressive than the Canucks ( could be so much fun to see them “fighting”) and there is more pressure in the stadium.
Get more Giants-information here and buy your ticket for a great game here. Enjoy the game!

Wish you a great Sunday and an enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.

Halloween is soon, so don’t forget to vote for your preferred Halloween Party here.
Aaand join us for our upcoming Portland trip.

PuB NiGHT Announcement

And it is time for PuB NiGHT again! This time we will combine it with a little shopping before we go for a drink – or two, or three, or… As our big Halloween party is this Friday, we thought we show you where you can get some cheap stuff to dress up. Meeting point is the thrift store Value Village at 1820 E Hastings St at 6:30 pm (MAP). There we will indulge in some crazy shopping and all of us will have the possibility to try something out. Maybe get some final touches for an already decided on costume, or find something which does not take a lot of effort and is still a costume for the big party. You probably have heard of Value Village, check out this video

Afterwards, we will go to The Reef and finally have our drinks 😉 By the way, this is a bar people under age can enter, so come on people under 19, come and join us tomorrow! And for everybody who does not want to tack along for the costume shopping and just want to meet us there for drinks: Our reservation there is for 8:15 pm and the address is 1018 Commercial Drive, The Reef (MAP).

The bar itself is in the Caribbean and its menus sparkle with the potential of lunch, brunch and dinner plates inspired by the styles and tastes of the Caribbean. Vibrant colors, tropical plants, and kitschy signs bring you back to days spent skipping geometry in Caribbean boarding school, creating a casual, fun atmosphere.

The specials you can get are:

Draught beer: Pint $5.50, glass $5, pitcher $19

Most cocktails: $7

Snacks: Several things in between $4 – $10

So come and join us for another great night out!

Annika
