PuB Night Review: Donnellans

Thank you all for joining us last night at our PuB NiGHT in the Donnellans Irish Pub.

Donnellans is a pretty new pub located on Granville Street in Granville Entertainment District. They frequently have live musicians performing at the pub. A fun fact of the pub is that all the employees who are working at Donnellans are also actually from Ireland.

Our night started after work when Bart and I first went to eat something at the Moose.

After some more people showed up and after some drinks we decided to end our night in the karaoke bar where we of course sang some fun songs.

I hope you all had an amazing time last night and I wish you all a nice long weekend!!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Blarney Stone

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Blarney Stone. It was great to see so many people showing up for PuB NiGHT. Thank you all for joining us!

Blarney Stone is an Irish pub in Gastown. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a live music band that is playing Irish songs. As it is an Irish pub they also have a big variety of Irish whiskeys. Besides that they also have a pretty big variety of beers and ciders too.

On Wednesday the pub has Trivia night, so we also tried it out with a pretty big group. After a while we noticed that the questions were way harder than expected, so after the first round we were so happy with just the 12 points that we got. There were more and more people arriving during our trivia and it became harder to actually concentrate on the questions, so we decided to quit with trivia. After the trivia I had time to talk to everybody and catch up with all of you guys. As it was Marie’s, Merle’s and Alex’s last PuB NiGHT, we decided to go to the Met for some karaoke. Here we started off singing Dancing Queen with each other and we ended the night well with our INTERNeX song.

I hope you all had a great night, because I certainly did! See you on Saturday at the Stanley Park bike ride!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Blarney Stone

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Blarney Stone in Downtown. It was really great seeing all of you there! Thank you all for coming and making this night great again.

Blarney Stone is the only original Irish Pub left in Vancouver. The pub has a lot of special beers, which can make you feel welcome in the city in no time. There is live music in the pub on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Most of the live music is performed by cover bands. Therefore, it is definitely worth checking it out in the weekend. If you would like to celebrate St. Patricks day, then this is the place to be! The pub has various activities for the entire week like Irish Trivia, Bushmills Dinner and the Jameson Barrelman’s Feast. However, they also organise normal trivia nights on Wednesdays.

16443644_1626303047385140_725039406_nLast night we were with a really big group, as we welcomed Dutch students from a university in Rotterdam to our PuB NiGHT. It was really nice to see so many people present at our PuB NiGHT. As it was Trivia Wednesday and we did not have anything to lose anyway, some of us decided to join the quiz as well. It was too bad that we could not hear everything of the quiz, as we were sitting upstairs and it was therefore very hard to answer all the questions. Others just sat on the couches and talked with each other. The two groups even mixed up a little bit and after a while both groups, the INTERNeX family and the Dutch students, went to other pubs to continue the party. The atmosphere among the group was really good and I was happy to be able to experience this PuB NiGHT.

I hope you all had a great time as well and hope we can continue the party at the Superbowl party!

Review: Halloween party @ Blarney Stone

Last Friday we went to Blarney Stone for an awesome Halloween party. A lot of people were already about to line up in front of Blarney Stone at 7pm when we arrived. Luckily our tickets allowed us to skip the line. Inside it was already packed with people. We quickly realized that this was all the party people who participated in the Halloween pub crawl. After some time quite a few people went on to the next pub… but it didn’t last long before a lot more people arrived, and the pub was once again packed.

There really was no limit to the craziness of the different costumes that we saw this night! We saw everything from a guy dressed up as spaghetti with meatballs to a girl wearing a big hat that looked like a turkey. There was a Nina Turtle, Spiderman, a guy wearing a banana costume and much much more. As you can see we were of course also dressed up for Halloween.

We all had a great time. Got a bit of something to eat, a bit to drink and then off we went to the packed dance floor. The music played was not always the ordinary type of club music, and every now and then a live band was playing… actually not bad at all! You could sort of call this a Halloween party with an Irish twist.

Thanks to you guys who made this evening and night awesome! Take a look at more Halloween party pictures here.

Hope to see you for another great event/activity this Saturday at Extreme Air Park (Canada’s BIGGEST trampoline park). Don’t worry, it’s not dangerous. Everybody can do it 🙂 You can sign up here.

And of course we also have our pub night at Doolin’s Irish Pub on Wednesday at 7pm.

Finally, we have our Portland trip from October 14th till October 16th. Join in for some early Christmas shopping, NBA awesomeness and great sightseeing. Sign up here and visit the INTERNeX office to make your payment (only $229 for the trip + $30 for an NBA match!).

Review: Pub Night @ The Lennox Pub

Yesterday we had yet another good pub night.

This time we met at the Irish pub the Lennox Pub in downtown Vancouver. The weather was a bit cooler compared to the nice sunny and hot weather the last couple weeks but fortunately there was plenty of space for us inside the cozy Irish pub. It was nice to see all of you who showed up for the pub night. A couple of us chose to try out the pub’s food while others just tried out some of the pub’s tasty and delicious selection of beers. We were lucky that the pub had a few special offers on beers this evening.

While getting something to drink and eat we had a really good time chatting about various topics. It was great to hear how everybody is doing in their different projects,  and what kind experiences and adventures everybody’s had in Canada as well as in other places around the world. Those who met up but didn’t have the chance to go to our Rockies trip also got the chance to hear a bit about some of the very good moments from this amazing trip. We’re definitely looking forward to our next great trip, and we hope to see just as many joining the trip. It will be awesome!

It would be great to even more people turn up for our next pub night. We’re definitely looking forward to yet another good evening in good company next Wednesday.
