Halloween-Party Review

Weeks of preparation have come to an end! The big night was finally here, all these hours of costume shopping and watching of make-up tutorials truly paid off. We looked stunning, guys! And I just want to make a big shout out to the Blarney Stone. Decorations, drinks, food and the party vibe were on point! IMG_4406.JPG
As our night started, we first got some food to be prepared for everything else happening afterwards. Apparently the Poutine is one of the best you can get in town and as we all know definitely a must try! Alongside the food and drinks, everybody was chatting and laughing, having a good time reviewing the highlights of the past week. As we got distracted by the live band starting off with some good hits. Clearly nobody could sit still for a very long time, so we got up and hit the dance floor. The band didn’t just have a great choice of songs, but also a pretty unique interpretation of it, which I loved. Therefore you just had to get up, jump, dance and go wild! Pub and dance-floor were crowded and pretty much everybody within the pub dressed up like crazy. I have never seen such inspiring and funny costumes before. I think my personal favourite  was a guy dressed as a taco. 
As is got later, we decided to change the location. And I am pretty sure you can guess, were we headed to?! Right, the Yale Saloon, what else could it be. But to be honest, for me it was the first time there, so I was really excited to see the INTERNeXer’s favourite location myself. And what should I say? –  I was riding that bull. To be fair, not really good, but something tells me everyone else had a little bit more time to practice. So I am trying not to be too hard on myself here. Anyways, I am pretty sure I’ll get some more time to practise and one day I might even beat you guys, who know’s ;-). a4a90cf4-fcdf-4de5-a46c-2205bc37cbf4.JPG
Big thank you to everyone who joined and made it a great night to be remembered! Photo and Video material has been provided on Instagram, so go and check it out yourself. 
This Sunday we will a get the chance to calm down a bit and enjoy the beauty of Granville Island. So I a looking forward to see you around.
And of course, don’t forget about next weeks PuB-Night, taking place at the Cambie Bar & Grill. 
Till then,
Cheers,

How was your Weekend?

Who said fall in Vancouver is all rainy? All I can see is the beautiful sun, blue sky and all these sun-loaded energetic people. So this weekend I finally got to see the stunning Stanley Park. This is probably everything but an inside tip, but just go out there, rent a bike and see it yourself. In case are you not the sporty kind of person, there is also the very nice Stanley Park Brewing, which I can recommend just as much ;-).
But the true highlight of the past weekend, was clearly the Haunted House. And I am saying this as a person, that gets scared super easily, but even than – this was an insane Halloween experience to be made! It took us quite a while, to get to the place, where the Halloween magic happens.

As we were waiting in the queue, a great show was already provided. Dancing mummies, and monsters made the time fly by. And already here I got the first heart attack, as some of the actors, jumped up from behind and wandered through the people, giving us some scary looks and good frights. As plans were made, like who is to leave behind, and at what points we should be smarter than people in all these horror movies, it was finally time to go in. And I promise you, I was screaming my soul out. Since I do not want to spoil this too much, I am keeping the descriptions short. But I can still feel my heart beating as if it is about to jump out any minute. Different rooms with different themes and multiple nightmare celebrities, basically chased us through the halls of the haunted house. After all it was absolutely worth the time effort we had to put in this trip.
After all I feel ready to get into the next Halloween adventure. The upcoming Halloween party, might not be as frightening as the Haunted House, but this is finally the chance for everybody to dress up themselves. And you never know, who might be hiding around the next corner of the Blarney Stone on Thursday! 
See you there. 
Cheers,

WHAT TO DO ON THE WEEKEND?

Blue Sky, bright sun – what a beautiful weekend ahead of us. So this is giving you the perfect opportunity to explore beautiful Vancouver in Fall. And I reckon you do this, as long as the weather is still on your side with that. Well, I don’t want to spoil but … Winter is coming guys. 

So afterwards you’ll be sitting at home, all happy about the vitamin D you to soak in. But how to finish a peaceful day like that and eventually bring in some action? Well, luckily we’ve got you sorted! 

Just picture us, together, slowly walking through the tight floors in total darkness, trying to make our way through. You can actually feel the adrenaline sticking in the air, giggles appear from time to time, your hands crawled up into the arm of the person in front of you, trying not to loose them. All the way through  you can’t get that big smile of your face, because you know they are waiting for you. The ghosts of Potter’s House of Horror are ready to get you, you just don’t know when and what’s happening next.You slowly turn around the next corner and …
BUH – got ya!  

Just make sure you’ll get your tickets asap (Link below), so you won’t have to wait outside and listen to the insane and/or funny stories everyone will be telling you afterwards! 

If you need further information on the event this Saturday, take a look on our Facebook page. 

Can’t wait to see you there. 

Cheers,

HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND?

One of the most exciting events is already knocking on the door. In case you haven’t realized all the decorated houses yet: Halloween is coming up! 
Since we all want to get to know the Canadian spirit, we started to get ourselves ready.  
And what is needed for the perfect Halloween Party after all? Right, an outstanding costume. So even though it was pouring rain, we got together and went all the way to Broadway to visit one of the places to get Halloween supplies. 
But calling it a store wouldn’t be fair after all. This was a Halloween-wonderland filled with everything you can imagine and even more.

So we got to know each others different faces, literally! In a paradise of wigs, masks, decoration, fake blood and monsters we had so much fun trying on everything that came into our hands. Some of us even discovered new matching hair colours for themselves ;-). Every time you turned around and/or entered a different aisle, new stuff was waiting to be discovered. Time just flew by and our bunch of happy, exhausted people got to leave this magical and scary place after quite a long time. Therefore it just seemed to be the right thing to recover with a coffee and some delicious snacks near by. We got the chance to have some nice chats and actually discovered many differences of how we are usually spending Halloween back in Europe. Wouldn’t it be great to discover the Canadian way all together? I am glad you asked ;-). We do have something prepared, which we are already very excited about. 
We are happy to announce the upcoming Halloween Party on October 31st. We’ll get together at the Blarney Stone! You’ll find all necessary information on our Facebook page as usual. And don’t forget to wear your costumes! 
For those of you who just can’t get enough, and those who need to get more Halloween injected and obviously those who just love having a good time …. so basically all of you guys: We also have the visit in a haunted house scheduled next weekend. As mentioned before, check out the INTERNeX Facebook Page and let us know if you are taking part! 
Hope you weekend was as great as mine. 
Any costumes inspirations can be discussed on Wednesday. Therefore see you at Pub-Night this Wednesday. 
Cheers,

What to Do on the Weekend?

Another weekend full of fun and adventure lies brightly ahead of us, so what is there to do?

Since it is the long Thanksgiving weekend, our weekly event deals with this holiday. On Sunday, October 13, you shouldn’t miss the Thanksgiving Potluck in our INTERNeX office. We will get together at 5 pm and everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. If you make a typical Canadian Thanksgiving dish, something from your home country or simply something you have been craving for a long time, does not matter. The plan simply is to enjoy a variety of different dishes, cherish each other’s company, listen to music and have some fun. Please don’t forget to also bring your own beverages!

Another fun thing to do on Sunday is attending the Halloween Parade on Granville Street at 11pm. Lots of people usually join or watch this happening that runs for about an hour. At the parade you’ll find action heroes, zombies of all kinds as well as Japanese anime characters. An interesting fact is that you don’t have to pay to participate in the parade if your costume is at least 70% handmade. This is surely the right event to get into the Halloween mood!

The Cranberry Festival on Saturday, October 12 is another seasonal event to be considered for the weekend. The festival takes place in Fort Langley, which is a beautiful historic town located in the Fraser Valley about a 45-minutes from Vancouver. The event usually features a market with dozens of vendors, cooking demonstrations, live music performances, food trucks and all kinds of cranberry-themed things to do and look at. Also, don’t miss having a look at the national historic site Fort Langley while you’re there (admission is free on that day!) to learn more about the site’s as well as Canada’s history. In the 19th century the location was a post of the Hudson Bay Company where fur traders mingled with California gold seekers on First Nation territory.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
