PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

Last night was very eventful. We started our PuB NiGHT off at the Beaver Bar, which is located right in the centre of downtown at Granville St. The INTERNeX gang was well presented as 20 of us in total showed up. Since everyone was having a blast we didn’t want the night to end so some of us continued the night at the Met.image.png

On Wednesdays the Beaver has a bingo night and at least I was super excited about it because I haven’t been playing bingo since I can remember. The Canucks were playing last night and the game was showed at the bar so we needed to wait for the game to end before the bingo could start. The end of the game was really good tho so we didn’t mind waiting for a bit. After the Canucks took the win with the score of 7-4 it was time for the Music Bingo. We all got our own Bingo sheets and we were ready to start. Last night the INTERNeX gang was feeling super lucky and we did not only win once but twice!

After three rounds of Bingo we decided to change the bar. Some of us went home and about half still continued to the Met. I had never been there before so it was nice to see some new places. As weird as it sounds I’d say the time we spent at the Met was somehow really active. First we played some table tennis sadly ending up loosing all the Ping-Pong balls. The Met has Karaoke so of course we had to take a part of that too. We also played some pool and Lukas even played one round of Flipper.

We really took everything out of last night and now it is time to turn our heads towards the upcoming events. This weekend we are visiting the Vancouver Fashion week which I am super excited about! There will also be more information about the amazing Rockies trip coming soon.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, enjoy the sunny day!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

Ready, set, let the game begin! The card deck ready in her hands, Nadine started to ask questions into the round. Black or red? Higher or lower? That’s how we began our PuB NiGHT at 131 Water yesterday. Some of you might recognize the questions – they are part of the game ‘bus driver’.42757303295_511babd74e_n

Shortly after 8pm, more and more people joined our table and the game as well. Some were lucky in the game, some not and others got so excited that they even spilled their beer all over the place. In the meantime, a new table opened up where some of us played the German game ‘Schummeln’. Fun times!

I was happy to see many new faces who we just welcomed in Vancouver last Monday. One topic of the night was of course our big trip to the Rocky Mountains next week. Many of you are excited to see the famous blue lakes in real life. Others did already and shared their experiences of the Rockies. Personally, I’m really looking forward it!

A few drinks later, it was time to change the location and introduce our new crew to the popular Met. As every Wednesday, karaoke was on the program for the night. So, we sang along to great and less great performances. Of course, the INTERNeX classic ‘500 miles’ couldn’t be forgotten on a night like this, so we gave it our best to entertain the pub.

Yesterday was great and the fun continues this weekend. I hope to see you on Friday for our picnic at Sunset Beach and on Saturday for the Celebration of Light!

PuB NiGHT Review: Dublin Calling Rooftop

‘Come sit on the roof with me – the drinks are cold and the friends are free’. Those words are written on a sign at Dublin Calling Rooftop, the location of yesterday’s pub night.

Dublin Calling Rooftop is definitely the place to be for a sunny night like yesterday. What a cozy atmosphere and lovely decoration in this pub located in the middle of busy Granville Street! Soon after our official start at 8pm, more and more of you found their way to our tables. Main topic of the night – next to the world cup, of course – was the upcoming camping trip. Everybody is excited for the big adventure on Vargas Island this weekend.

For some it was the first, for others the last pub night. So, we signed some Canadian flags with lovely goodbye words and talked about all the Canadian adventures of the past months. Good chance for all newcomers to get some ideas for the upcoming weeks.

Signing Canadian flags is one tradition. The other one is called karaoke. So, after the glasses were emptied, some of us got on their way to Gastown. The (leftover) INTERNeX gang performed ‘500 miles’, Samuel finally got introduced to our way of karaoke and Rebecka said goodbye to the Met. That was another great Wednesday.

I hope you had a fun night as well and that you will join us again next week at Malone’s.

Enjoy your weekend!

PuB NiGHT Review: Library Square

Another Wednesday, another PuB NiGHT! This time, we thought we’d spice it up and go to a pub we had never been to before: Library Square. Home to Vancouver Arsenal, this is the place to be to watch their matches live every time they play. There was no match yesterday, but that didn’t make our night any less fun.

41305221034_0ab03ae781_nWe walked inside and saw a big tv screen in front of us, there was a baseball game going on! But seats filled up quite quickly, so no one really paid attention to the game. The night consisted of lots of interesting conversations. From discussing summer plans to talking about the process of making chocolate. From marriage to babies. You know, just casual chitchat.

Usually, we leave the pub around 11pm. This time, however, we were still deep into our conversations at midnight! So, I guess you could say we had a good time. When we finished our last beers, some people went home and others continued the fun by going to the Met, our slightly infamous karaoke bar. At 2am, it was time to go home and get some sleep.

I had a great evening with you and loved seeing some new faces! See you all this Sunday for Laser Tag!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamplighter

“Only one more to go! Just one!” Last night, it was time to go back to one of our beloved pubs, The Lamplighter, to win some free drinks by yelling “bourbon bingo!” Although, spoiler alert, we didn’t win any. We played five rounds of Bingo, had 15+ participants, but faith was not on our side this time. Oh well… we had fun anyway!

After playing Bingo, we continued our conversations about work, life in our home countries, the surprisingly good weather and of course, the upcoming INTERNeX activities we have planned for you all. Many of you showed up at the pub, which made sure the tables we reserved were never empty. This made sure we always had something to talk and laugh about. 26857502527_58a05dec8e_n

At 11:30pm, it was time to say goodbye to the Lamplighter and say hi to the Met, because cheap beer is always a good idea. Some of you decided to bless us with your beautiful voices by grabbing the mic and doing karaoke. At 1:30 in the morning, we decided to call it a night.

I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! I look forward to seeing you all at the the Dutchie for a Day event this Saturday!

PuB NiGHT Review: Portside Pub

Wednesday nights are our favourite one’s! Why? Because it is PuB NiGHT of course! Every week, we are meeting at another place in Vancouver to enjoy a fun evening together.

Yesterday, we were welcomed at the Portside Pub in Gastown. As the name might tell you already, this pub gives you the feeling of sitting in a cozy boat while drinking a beer and sailing on the big, wild sea. The chairs around our table were taken quickly, so it was time to share the newest stories about placements, work, future travel plans, the annoying roommate or the lovely host mom. It is always fascinating how much we actually have in common, even though we are all coming from different parts of the world.

After a while of chatting, the serious part of the night started: karaoke. The lyrics were projected on a big screen, so everyone could sing along with the brave person behind the microphone at the front of the pub. (So it was actually not that serious.) The star of the night: Julian who surprised the crowd with the song “To love somebody”. Wow, that was amazing!

The rest of the night passed by quickly with singing and dancing along to great performances. And one, maybe even two freshly tapped beers. However, at the end of the night we found ourselves not back on sea, but in beautiful Gastown. Luckily!

Keep your chins up, soon it will be weekend again! I hope to see you on Sunday for a tour behind the scenes at the Rogers Arena.

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

Oops we did it again… PuB NiGHT at 131 Water! I’ve heard great stories about this pub from all of you, which is why going back there once again seemed like a good idea. I think we can all agree that it was! The coziness, shelves filled with games and Happy Hour assured that it would be a great night.

40787832372_cbb1471c13_nSince it was Roslyn’s last PuB NiGHT, we started the evening with a game she loves: What Do You Meme? This game is reminding us of all the hundreds of memes that have been brought into the universe and that can serve as a quick reply to texts, rather than using words. Simple, but effective. Others played the non-meme version of the game ‘Cards Against Humanity’.

When everyone finished their beers, cocktails and Happy Hour snacks, it was time to show off our singing skills at the Met. We sang along to, of course, 500 Miles and, to showcase how international we are, some even sang a Swedish song.

All in all it was a great night with good people, good food and good music.

I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

See you all at the UBC Party on Saturday!
