Pub-Night Review

So much love! 

I am not going to do the whole emotional goodbye post just yet, but I’ll have to say how incredibly sad I am, that this was officially my last Pub-Night! And I think we absolutely made it count.

The night started of as usual, a few drinks and some food. But instead of having some chats, drinks and food first, this time we hit the dance floor right away!
It must have been a very strange picture, especially for the new guys, to see us very much gifted dancers, humbling around as if there is no tomorrow.
So as you clearly must have noticed – there is no judgment in this group :P. You will fit in just perfectly.

Besides, how great are you guys?! It was absolutely amazing to see how many people showed up. Thank you so so much.
Even though, I believe the waiter wasn’t as excited as I was. Especially considering the fact that instead of 15 people, 30 showed up … I am very sorry for that.
After surviving the traditional disgusting shots (check internex_canada on Instagram for video proof), everything was set for an awesome night.
After ruling the dance floor in the Yale Saloon for quite a while, we decided, that those skills need to be shared with the world and made our way to The Roxy (what a surprise, I know).
As soon as we got there, we got kinda distracted by the beerpong table. I think it’s a pretty well-known fact that INTERNeXer’s hearts skip a beat as soon as there is a the slight chance of a good match in the air.
However after only 99999999 matches, we decided to go for a slice of pizza and eventually end the night. 

Thank you guys so much for not only this Pub-Night, but also all the others in these past months! It has been a blast! 

Love,

The Beer-Pong Rules – A short Tutorial

Preparation for tonights Cambie-Pong Tournament 

As we don’t have any ‘New Kids on the Blog’ today, I am gonna make use of the time and go through the most important beer-pong rules again. 

Once again – no pressure, but I do want us to be prepared! 

49175269351_12d4b48abb_o.jpgHowever those are just general rules and may be modified in every game. So I won’t guarantee that those will be exactly tonights rules. Some rules might be different or may not apply at all. But I am sure, we will find out tonight. But let’s start with our short Beer-Pong-Tutorial! 

1.No-one wants you to be an alcoholic 

This game is not supposed to force you to drink! The only reason I am calling it Beer-Pong Tournament is literally because, that is how the game is called. Tonight, we will be playing the game with water in our cups, therefore you decide if you want to drink or not! 

No matter what, this is the most important rule ever – YOU DON’T HAVE TO DRINK IF YOU DON’T WANT TO. In any case you are welcome to take part in the game. 

2. Reracking 

It is also referred to as simply rearranging your cups. Usually you are allowed to do that twice during a match, but this depends on the amount of cups that are involved total. So we will have to wait till tonight to actually find out. You are allowed to do that, whenever it is your term, in other words: before you are about to throw. 

Also, if you opponent requests it, the last cup may always be pulled back and centred. 

3. Bouncing 

If a ball hits the table and then goes into a cup (even by accident, blindfolded or whatever), the cup that the ball goes into is removed, as well as another cup of the defending players choice. If there are only two cups remaining, the bounce only counts as 1 cup. 

4. Fingering/ Blowing 

You may have heard the very sexist limiting term, that either one of those affects you IMG_4558.JPGaccording to your gender … I’ll give you a moment to figure out what I mean…. but since we are living in 2020, I’d say let’s loose those gender rules! 

However fingering is when the ball is spinning inside of a cup and the defending team pulls it out with his/her finger. Blowing is when the ball is spinning inside of a cup and it is blown out by the defending team. 

Very difficult rule … I know :D. 

5. Fixing Cups 

If requested the cups may be fixed at any time. Don’t mix it up with the racking. It simply means that you put the cups where they are supposed to be as they might have been shifted during the game. 

IMG_5093.JPG6. Trickshots 

This rule applies after shooting, if the ball rolls back to the shooter without hitting the floor (you may also grab it mid-air), they can shoot it again in a creative, tricky way. (For example behind the back, blindfolded, through a leg …). 

7. The Rebuttal 

After the last cup is hit, each player from the loosing team has a chance to hit the remaining cup. Each player shoots until they miss, the order is irrelevant. Once both players miss and there are remaining cups, the game is over. If the players manage to hit all remaining cups the game goes into a 3 cup overtime. 

(This rule, is pretty much played different in every single game, so please pay attention, before you get into a fight with your opponent ;)). 

8. The Elbow rule 

This rules claims, that the elbow must be behind the edge of the table. Although this rule only applies in the actual process of throwing a ball. You might think, this is very obvious, but trust me for some people it’s not :D. 

Just wait until you opponent screams “watch your eeeellllbbboooowww” with every single move you make, even if it’s just to pick up your side-drink to have a sip (when it’s not even your term) .. hypothetically I mean… 

Once again, they will be explaining the rules tonight and they might differ to the ones here, but now your knowledge is refreshed and you are ready for the big night. 

Can’t wait to see you there! 

Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Isn’t it weird how the night from Wednesday to Thursday always feels so much shorter than any other weeknight?! 
IMG_5648.JPGAnyways even though I am bit tired, I had a pretty good night last night again! 🙂
We went to the La Casita, which doesn’t just sound Mexican, but actually took us on a little trip down to Mexico right away. The music, the decorations, the drinks – everything was just perfectly getting you in the right vibe. 
So after some fantastic food, we made our way through the margarita menu. So that even our Danish margarita queen found something new to experience ;P. 
But there is still one massive question that has been bothering me ever since and unfortunately I couldn’t find an answer last night … so when do I get sugar and when do I get salt on the edge of my margarita glass?? So if anyone could please get me out of this sinister hole of cluelessness, please leave me a message. IMG_5638.JPG
Anyways Pub-Night wouldn’t be Pub-Night, if we wouldn’t have moved on to a different location to continue the celebrations of togetherness. Out of the two big favourites, we chose to go to the Cambie this time. Sorry Yale – Saloon, but you will probably see us soon enough anyways.  
A very exhausting game of Pac-Man, brought me closer to nervous break down than I ever wanted to be. Maybe it’s not really who we play against (literally any game), maybe it’s the Cambie itself, that brings out the most competitive side in everyone :D. (Careful, this was an inside joke and might test your loyalty to this blog).
However, afterwards we moved on to the Dance Floor and since we’ve got it all to ourselves, “dancing like nobody watches you”, wasn’t a phrase anymore :D. 
And I won’t lie, we learned some incredible and unique dance moves to show off at the next club visit. Usually you get three types of people on the dane floor. Type 1 would be the “right-tip-left-tip” type, so more the classical “I like to dance, but I am not going wild tonight” kind of A1488CFB-1F64-47F7-B4C9-BA97CC3DF34C.JPGdancer. Type two, which is the “move-your-hips” type, clearly knowing what they are doing and actually looking good doing it, simply born with rhythm in their blood. And then you get the “getting-jealous-looks-because-their-dancing-looks-like-so-much-fun-but-you-get-funny-looks-for-doing-it” type of dancers. (Wow what a handy and short name, well done Nadja.. getting right to the point here!).  
So I think all of us just transformed into type number three and honestly I don’t think I can ever go back from there! 😀
Thank you guys for honouring me with your presence :D. 
See you next week! 
Cheers, 
—Nadja xx

PuB-Night Review

And it’s over again – my favorite day of all weekdays.
This week we went to the Moose’s Down Under and again it was great to see that so many people joined us last night! Thanks for that!IMG_4755.JPG
Besides that, we actually got a lot to celebrate last night. Starting off with our newest arrival Simon, being introduced to our group. Since we are a super friendly and easy-going group, he became part of the group very quickly!
Furthermore we actually got a birthday to celebrate and one to “belate-celebrate”. (I don’t know if that is an actual thing … I guess now it is!)
So Happy Birthday once again to Sarah and Laura!
After a few drinks and some really nice food, we went on to the next location. There was no need of discussing which place it will be and I am pretty sure you know already. So just a bus drive later we found ourselves in The Yale Saloon once again.
As they had Jager Bombs on special and since we are always appreciating ways to safe some money, we didn’t loose much time make use of this offer. And after this it seemed like the right thing to do, to sign up for the Bull-riding competition …. Just in case you want to see some more pictures and videos than I will provide up here, check out our Instagram story! After all, we were the lucky winners of a $50 gift card for drinks. Truly the best price to win! 8e2b481b-97bb-40f9-bad9-b38ea8618d44.JPG
The Jager Bombs we got out of this, even gave me enough confidence to try out Line-Dancing. And thanks to the very patient teachers, it kinda looked like some real Line Dance after all!
Thank you guys, I really enjoyed it. 
I am already looking forward to next week!
Next PuB-Night will be at the Beaver, 7pm.
See you there! 
Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

Thank you guys! This was such a fun night!

Last night we went to The Cambie Bar & Grill, to check out this well known location ourselves. Even though I haven’t been to Vancouver for that long, I’ve heard many stories about it. And to be honest, as I heard they host a beer pong tournament on Wednesdays, I knew we would have to go there.  IMG_4553.JPG

Drinks went down well and the food was delicious. Especially the free nachos were appreciated :-D. Thanks again to the neighbour table, who clearly underestimated the “monster” nachos! As we all had some time to talk about how life has been treating us so far, the real serious stuff came up – what teams to make for the beer pong tournament. After long discussions, INTERNeX sent 3 teams into the race.
As this was all about fun, we realized pretty early, that some other teams take this way more serious than others … ;-).  So the INTERNeX crew had to stand together in this tournament after all. It ended up in a European (which was us) against not-European battle. We even made it to the final!
Only then we got told, that the winning team will get free “Cambie Shirts” …. motivation was on!

Unfortunately we lost that one very fast and kinda obvious. I’ll have to admit, we didn’t stand a chance against the CRAZY team we had to face. Congratulation guys, well played.  

IMG_4560.JPGEven though INTERNeX couldn’t bring home this cup, we still enjoyed it very much. And I still made a winning experience, I had my first fireball, what an experience! To be honest – I definitely expected worse, I even liked it. 

So thank you very much guys! This has been a great night. Can’t wait to see you all again at next weeks PuB-Night at the Portside Pub. 

Cheers,

PuB-Night review

What a fun night!

Since this was my first PuB-Night ever, I am so impressed by the amount of people I met last night! Thank you for being so nice and welcoming!

IMG_4148The beaver, located on Granville Street, is definitely a place worth checking out! Even tho we were such a big group the stuff didn’t get tired to run up and down the stairs constantly. The Pub itself is a really nice place, just making you feel the canadian spirit.  A personal recommendation are the nachos! So good. Thanks again for getting me amped on them ;-).
Later we went on to playing some music bingo, apparently that’s the thing to do, when you visit the beaver on a Wednesday night. And I have to admit, this wasn’t the last time of me playing bingo in here. Some of us were even lucky enough to win and got into the joy of having some shots or even a pitcher for free! I think we can agree in having a pretty good night out this week!

After the long Thanksgiving weekend everybody was so happy to be around each other again. And besides me, there were some new faces to be welcomed in the group. Therefore a special welcome to you guys and thanks for coming!

But don’t worry the next Canadian highlight is already set. Since Halloween is such a big thing here, we should het the chance to get into some crazy costumes for our upcoming Halloween Party! Therefore, and because I am personally very excited to get to know you guys a little bit better, we’ll see each other on the weekend and go do some costume shopping together!
And I am promising you, the Halloween-vibe around here is just on another level!

I hope you are having a great day and see you soon.

PuB NiGHT review: 131 Water

Last night we had a pub night right next to the famous steam clock in Gastown (and yes we stopped to take some touristy pics with it). 131 Water was a really comfy bar and we were lucky to have the whole second floor to ourselves.

img_20190313_202539-e1552602704645.jpg

The bar had plenty of board games that you can play but we were too busy chatting with each other so no games this time. It was my second pub night here in Vancouver so I met a lot of new faces. For some of us it even was the first one but thankfully the INTERNeX gang is very welcoming. It was great to see how the new faces blended in the group so well.

In case you haven’t experienced any pub nights yet now is the time to start! It’s never too late to join but let me tell you that you are missing out every time you decide not to come. The big group of us had so many discussions last night and I think everyone made some new friends.

I was sad to hear that so many of you are leaving soon and won’t be able to take part in our amazing trip to the Rocky Mountains (yes there is a trip coming, yes it’s happening soon, yes I will tell more information later). Let me just say that this trip is something you definitely do not want to miss.

Thank you everyone who participated last night! The ones of you who are coming to Seattle I’ll see you on Sunday!
