How was your weekend?

It’s Monday again which means that the weekend is already over. But since my weekend was so much fun, I would like to look back on it one more time with all of you guys! So if you want to know what I did this weekend than keep on reading!

My weekend started off on Friday when we decided to play a really fun game at the office called Zombies. When we were done with the game I met up with Roslyn to grab some food at The Pint before going to her and Linda’s Birthday Party in 131 Water.

Once we all arrived in the pub we played Card Against Humanity, which is always a lot of fun. After a couple drinks and some food we decided to continue our night at The Bourbon where we had some more drinks.

Since it was a long night on Friday I woke up pretty late on Saturday and watched some Netflix before it was time for me to get ready to grab some dinner and go to the Christmas Karaoke Trolley tour. Once I finished my sushi dinner we met up with all the other INTERNeX candidates at Canada Place where our tour started. We first visited Bright Nights at Stanley Park, drove past Hycroft Manor and St. Paul Hospital and finished our tour at the VanDusen Botenical garden.

On our way to all these amazing destinations we sang a lot of Christmas Songs like “All I Want For Christmas Is You” “ Last Christmas” “Let it Snow” and many more. The Christmas Lights at VanDusen and Stanley Park were really pretty and impressing. At VanDusen we all enjoyed a Hot Chocolate or Mulled Wine.

When the tour ended we decided to go to The Blarney Stone where a live band was playing some music and after a couple of drinks we went with some people to The Bourbon to proceed the party there.

On Sunday I slept in and visited David at Horseshoe Bay at night and after he was done with work we went to downtown to the Yale Saloon for a drink. It was a lot of fun since they had karaoke night there and you all know how much we love karaoke.

Thank you all for joining us for the Christmas Karaoke Trolley Tour and we hope to see you all at the next PuB NiGHT in The Charles Bar!

What to do this weekend?

Jingle Bells, jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! All I want for Christmas is you. Walking in a winter wonderland. Here you go. Just some suggestions you can sing during the Christmas Karaoke Trolley Tour this tomorrow. Yes, that’s right! Tomorrow is the big day. Wonder what else is happening this weekend? No worries, I got you. Find out in this blog.

24623828_1645556255491479_182680653_oThe doors of the ice-skating rink have been opened. Go to Robson Square to enjoy some ice-skating. It’s free! You can bring your own skates or rent them there. From Wednesday on until Christmas there is a life act performance every day. So even another fun reason to go there.

For the people who are not joining the Christmas Karaoke Trolley, maybe it is fun to go to the places where we make our stop. You can go for example to Stanley Park for the Bright Nights event. Enjoy the many Christmas lights and miniature train rides. We also make a stop at the Festival of Lights at the VanDusen Garden. Thousands of Christmas lights light up the Garden to create a wonderful winter wonderland.

I hope you have much fun with whatever you decide to do and for the people joining the Christmas Karaoke Trolley, warm up your voices, because we are going to rock!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Black Frog

Thank you all for joining us on Wednesday for our PuB NiGHT at The Black Frog!

We had a lot of fun and we all hope you did too! We started our night after work when we went to The Pint to enjoy the Wing Wednesday deal. After we filled our stomachs with some chicken wings and a beer it was time for us to go to The Black Frog.

When we arrived they were broadcasting the Oilers game since The Black Frog is a pub, which supports the Oilers from Edmonton. After the game was finished they played some music and we enjoyed some cocktails and beers.

After a while we all decided to go to The Met of course to sing some karaoke songs and ended our night there.

We hope to see all of you this Saturday for the Christmas Karaoke Trolley!

Next week is our Chirstmas party! Secret Santa is also a part of this evening. No idea what to buy for the game? Here are some places where you can find cheap but fun gifts.

20171203_161958

Dollorama and Dollartree are cheap shops where they have everything! You can collect a lot of small things to make a nice, big gift. Or look in one of the many souvenir shops. They also have a lot of fun stuff with a Canadian flag on it. Who doesn’t want that?

Maybe you have a nice restaurant of bar who have gift cards. Everybody will be happy with food and drinks, especially with discounts. Christmas decorations are not expensive, but also a fun thing to get. Or prepare somebody else for the cold and rain that is still waiting for us this winter.

Wherever you go and whatever you go to buy, I can’t wait to see all the gifts. Good luck hunting for some fun gifts. We hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT tomorrow night!

How was your weekend?

This weekend was a weekend to remember! So if you would like to know what we did keep on reading!

On Friday after work I had a pretty relaxed evening. I first went up to Horseshoe bay where I grabbed a coffee at Blenz and waited for David to be done with work. After he was done we went to downtown to grab some late dinner at Mc Donalds before heading home.

On Saturday I slept in and met up with Roslyn and Rebecka for some sushi before heading to The Bourbon. At the Bourbon we did some shots and enjoyed the Happy Hour deal. Later also Tom, Sebastian and his colleague joined us for some drinks and dancing. After a long and fun night we decided all to head home.

On Sunday the alarm went off pretty early since it was time for the Santa Claus Parade in Downtown. We saw a lot of fun cars passing by like the Vancouver Police Department, the Firefighter Department and of course Santa Claus himself!

After the parade we grabbed some lunch at Boston Pizza which included a lot of desserts as well. When we all finished our delicious lunch we headed to the Christmas Market at Jack Poole Plaza. It was a really pretty market with a lot of German inspired Christmas stands and also a lot of German food.

When we were done with buying some German food and drinking our warm apple cider and hot chocolate we ended our night!

Thank you all for joining and we hope you had an amazing weekend as well. Looking forward to see you all at the PuB NiGHT at the Black Frog!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamplighter

Thank you all for joining us last PuB NiGHT at the Lamplighter!

Our night started off at The Warehouse where we had some dinner first and some drinks of course. After we were done with our amazing dinner and drinks we went to the Lamplighter for some Bourbon Bingo.

We sang songs like Bad Day, The Banana Song and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

We had a really fun night and I hope you did as well!

We are looking forward to see you Saturday for the Santa Claus Parade and The Christmas Market.
