Review: PuB NiGHT at the Pint

PuB NiGHT was great again! Thank you all for coming to the Pint.

The Pint is a pub in downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means that their wings are only $4. There are also lots of TV screens to watch sports like hockey and basketball.

18448016_1565436526813604_584222969_n.jpgThe night started of great with watching the Stanley Cup play offs on the TV screens in the pub. Edmonton Oilers unfortunately lost, but we still had fun watching the game. There was a great atmosphere in the pub because of everyone watching it. For some of the INTERNeX family it was their last PuB NiGHT, which was really sad. We wrote on Andreas’ flag and made a great group picture to remember the night!

After an amazing night at the Pint we decided to go to Andreas’ favourite place in town, the Met, to do karaoke! We did some great songs together like, ‘We’re all in this together’ from High School Musical and ‘Wannabe’ from the Spice Girls. It was great to sing with such a big group and a great ending of the night!

I had an amazing night and I hope you all did too!

Review: PuB NiGHT at the Lamplighter

Yesterday we went to the Lamplighter for PuB NiGHT! Once again, so many people that showed up. Thank you all for coming!

18337202_10209426544842635_1581636809_nThe Lamplighter is a pub in Gastown. It is part of the Donelly group, which you immediately feel when you step into the pub. This also gave me a familiar feeling, as we have been going to pubs from the Donelly group a lot. Lamplighter might not be the most cheapest place for drinks, but the atmosphere is good for sure. The pub has a cocktail of the week. This week’s one was the Gin Tonic, which was $2 off. Besides that they have a lot of beers and ciders, so there is something for everyone.

There were several screens in the pub that showed us a game of the Stanley Cup: Edmonton Oilers vs. Anaheim Ducks. This meant that a lot of Canadians went to pubs to see the game. The Lamplighter was also very busy, but luckily we had our own spot in the corner of the pub. During the breaks the pub was playing “Bourbon Bingo”. You could get free sheets at the bar and could win bourbon shots, a $25 gift card and a beer. Almost everybody started to play bingo, as it was free anyway and we simply love bingo. One of our group won the bourbon shots and others were close to win the $25 gift card.

18336958_10208904603233327_1425945733_nAfter the bingo we ended in the Met. Everybody immediately started to write down songs that they wanted to sing. Obviously, we had to sing the INTERNeX song “We are all in this together” of High school musical too, because a night at the Met without an INTERNeX song does not exist. Others were daredevils and sang a song without the whole INTERNeX group. I am glad that I finally had my karaoke experience in Vancouver.

Overall, it was an amazing night. I hope to see you all this weekend at Lighthouse Park or at next PuB NiGHT!

Coquitlam Express Hockey Game – Experience IT Review

Last Friday we went to see a Junior A hockey game. Coquitlam Express played against the King George Spruce Kings. It was an amazing game and thanks to all of you for coming!

Coquitlam Express plays in the British Columbia Hockey League. Junior A is for players aged between 16 to 20 years old and is one level below the Canadian Hockey League.

It is definitely really different from a Canucks game, but it was a great game to watch! We were sitting really close to the rink, which made watching the game a lot more fun. The players were really fast and sometim16998697_10155035298992103_2894308372378493389_n.jpges even pushing each other to the glass sides to get the puck. There was something happening every single minute, even during the breaks. During the first break they did a racing match with two boys from the audience and during the second break they played a game with frisbees to win money. During the breaks some of us also bought hotdogs, as this is the tradition while watching a hockey game. The teams were equally good in the beginning of the game, but after the first period the Spruce Kings became better and made some more goals. The final score was Coquitlam 1 – Prince George 4.

It was the first hockey game for many of us. Therefore, it was sometimes a bit hard to understand what happened on the field in the beginning. However, it was a very good preparation for our Canucks game next month!

We had an amazing night and hope that you all did too! I hope to see you Wednesday on PuB NiGHT.

Review: PuB NiGHT @ The Pint

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was great! Thank you all for coming! Most of us were still recovering from New Years Eve and going back to work again, but it was lots of fun.

The Pint is a pub in Downtown. Every Wednesday it has Wings Wednesday, which means fullsizeoutput_19c4that their wings in 40 different ways are only $4.50. There are also a lot of TV screens to watch sports and a downstairs area with a pool table.

In the beginning of some of us watched the Canucks game on the screens in the pub and others were playing some pool. It was fun to talk about the amazing New Years Eve we had and hear all the stories. The night ended earlier than other nights because of the fact that most of us were still tired from New Years.

I had a great evening and I hope you all did too! See you next week!!

Pub and hockey night

Hi out there! Monday, December 1st, will be a special day. Why?… because 12 Swedes and 2 Danes will arrive at the INTERNeX office here in Vancouver. For this occasion we’ll be heading towards the Irish pub the Blarney Stone which is located in the great area of Gastown.

A table will be reserved for us at 6pm. At Blarney Stone we’ll get a bit to drink and eat. Aaand we’ll be watching a hockey match, Boston vs. Anaheim. There are several Swedish players on each of the hockey teams + one Danish goalie, so it could be very intense 🙂 The hockey match will be screened at 7pm.
