Pub Night Review: Blarney Stone

Team wet pigs and team so good were ready to start the Trivia. While the waitress was serving us some food and drinks, we were thinking about the answers of all the questions appearing on the screen.

After every round was a bonus question where you could win a pitcher of beer. Unfortunately, we were not smart enough to win a pitcher of beer. We got the score back at the end of the game and we were not that bad. But some other people were a little smarter than us, so no prize for us. After the Blarney Stone with went (of course) to the Metropole to sing our songs. It was not that busy this time, so we could sing many songs.

Blarney Stone is a really fun pub in the weekend if you like Irish music. Every weekend there is a live band playing and people dancing all around. During the week they have nice events organized and you can often find a organized party here as well.

It was a lot of fun playing trivia with you guys. I hope everybody is rested enough for the ice-skating tomorrow. Let’s get hurt ourselves on the ice! Or not if you are familiar with ice. However, I hope to see you at Robson tomorrow!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

“For how many people do you want to make a reservation?” “I think between 10 and 15 people” “Sure!” …And there we were with 20 people! Wauw! We are very happy to see that so many of you showed up. A big group means also big fun! And we definitely had a lot of fun! Thank you all for joining this pub night!

We had a lounge for ourselves. A couple minutes after eight the lounge was already filled with people. We got a shot from the pub, so cheers to that. But after, more people were still coming, so we moved to a bigger table upstairs. Then it was time for the real work: the bingo began! And yes, we got our first prize! Alina got a free shot (which she was unfortunately not allowed to drink). Then it was time for the music bingo. And yes, another prize! This time Hanna won a free pitcher of beer. After singing out loud to the classic sing alongs and a couple dance moves later, we decided that our voice was not loud enough yet. So we went to the karaoke bar to sing through a microphone this time. Because some people still didn’t want to go home yet, the party continued in the Bourbon. After ordering a free burger (haha) the night was over.

The Beaver bar is a nice cozy bar underneath an international hostel. Every night they organise a different activity. For example the bingo, but also trivia or a DJ night. And a new great deal every day. All the ingredients for the perfect pub night! Since everybody loved it, we definitely are coming back here! Thank you for joining us this night and I hope to see you at the Chinese lantern festival this Saturday.

PuB NiGHT Review: The Relish Pub

Thank you everybody for joining us last night at The Relish Pub for our first PuB NiGHT of the year. It was so good to see that everybody survived the holidays and there were even some new faces!

At the Relish Pub we had some drinks and enjoyed some nice food. Some people enjoyed the daily drink specials like Stanley Park Amber beer and the whiskey deals. After we had some drinks and food we decided to take the bus to The Met to of course close our night with some karaoke.

26610713_1838158142892323_212067677_oSongs like “Hotel California”, “Angels” and “Summer nights” were sang. After some songs and more drinks we decided to call it a night.

Again thanks for joining and we hope to see you all on Saturday for the Lord of The Rings Trilogy event!

How was your weekend?

Happy New Year! Goodbye 2017 and hello 2018! I wish you all the best luck and more beautiful moments during all your adventures. May it be in Canada, may it be somewhere else in the world. Before we can start talking about 2018, I first want to tell you how I experienced the last days of 2017.

The Christmas party on Thursday in the office was a good start to begin the holidays. We drank some eggnog with rum, beers and a lot of food, we were ready to continue our night in the Blarney Stone and later on karaoke in the Bourbon.

On Saturday we met up early in the morning to take the bus to the Rocky Mountains. It was a really cold trip, but what an amazing views! The first day of our trip, we drove to the cabins in Golden. We made S’mores above the campfire and we did a nightly glow-snow-shoe hike in the woods.

The next day we drove early in the morning towards Banff. We saw a lot of beautiful views along the way. The first activity we did today was snow tubing. After that, we stopped at Lake Louis to go Ice-skating. Later we also did a hike through Johnston Canyon to see the frozen waterfalls. We went back to the bus to make our last stop for today, we were in Banff! We dressed up nicely and went to a sushi place where we got served by a train. After the stomachs were filled, it was time to party. We began at a cheap pub before heading to nightclub Hoodoo.

IMG-20171230-WA0005Merry Christmas! It was the time of the year again. We started the day with viewing the sunrise at Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Both were frozen and very beautiful. Because the temperature was minus 30 degrees, we decided to warm up in the hot springs in Banff. It was really strange sitting outside in your swimming pants with temperatures colder than your freezer. After we warmed up, we went up to Sulphur Mountain with the Gondola. Here we had a 360 degrees view over the landscape. It was definitely worth the cold. When we were down again, we drove back to Golden to have our Christmas diner. Even Santa Claus came to give us our Christmas presents. I went with our new friends to the hot tub and did a polar beer roll (rolling in the snow in our swimming pants) before going to the sauna. We ended this Christmas day around the campfire. Then the day arrived we had to go back to Vancouver. We stopped at some nice places to take photos and we did some fun games in the bus (which our side of the bus won of course).

You would think that we were exhausted after our trip, but because we are diehards we keep going. We had to say goodbye to two of our friends, Dawid and Maxine, who were about to leave Canada after several months. We met up at Malones for some drinks and went to the Met afterwards for some karaoke.

20171228_183415The next day was the perfect day for Ice Skating. So we went to the Ice rank on Robson to try out the ice. For some it was very easy, for others this was one of the first times ever they stand on skates. Later on we did some games and we ended up in the pub for a beer.

Friday was the last day of Julia with her host family. Because of that reason, her host family decided to throw a party for her. We had a really delicious diner, a cake and champagne. After a lot of laughs it was time to leave Surrey and go back to Vancouver.

On Saturday we decided to go to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The Capilano Light festival is still going on, so we enjoyed some nice views in the lighten-up park. When we were back in Vancouver, we met again with the rest of the group to play some games. After the games were finished, we went to the Roxy to close our night with some Jägerbombs and dances.

New years day! When the afternoon arrived, we did some games (surprise!) and popped a bottle of champagne. When the evening started, we headed to Canada place to see the firework show. When the show was over, it was time to go somewhere warmer, so the club it was. Once inside we counted down to the New Year with a balloon drop and some more champagne.

And now it is time to say hello to 2018! Let’s be real, no one is keeping their resolutions, so we might as well break them all in one night. So set aside that new gym membership, grab a beer and kick off the New Year with us during the first PuB NiGHT of the year tomorrow!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

We’ve come a long way from where we began. Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. So sad this was already the last PuB NiGHT of the year. No, just kidding. We will be back next year with new pubs, games, bingo, beers and karaoke.

25674687_1566724663416199_2038943092_o

This PuB NiGHT was a good one to close this year with. The game Cards Against Humanity was on the table again. And because we had a birthday girl called Linda at our table, we sang Happy Birthday in every language. After the cheap happy hours beers it was time to go. As we already warmed up our throats with the Happy Birthday song, we decided to continue our beautiful singing in the karaoke bar.

Everybody sang some nice songs. Or at least they tried. After all the fun was done we decided to go to get some food. Luckily for us, the DJ was hungry as well. So he brought Rebecka and I with his car to the Roxy. We drank one more beer before eating the very delicious chicken wings. Then, later than expected, the night was really over now.

Thank you all for joining us this PuB NiGHT. Because you will miss the karaoke so much next Wednesday, we will be there singing our favourite Christmas songs all night long. Yes Sebastian, you can sing Lady Gaga again if you want. Happy Christmas and I hope to see you at our NYE party!

PuB NiGHT Review – The Charles Bar

The Charles bar. A nice bar on the border of Gastown. Peaceful and quit. Until INTERNeX is having a PuB NiGHT there. Thanks to everyone who was there during this special edition of PuB NiGHT. We had a lot fun.

This PuB NiGHT everybody showed up in Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Not because they like Christmas Sweaters so much, but because we had an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest going on. Maxine was very creative by creating her own Ugly Christmas Sweater. And believe me, it was ugly. Others bought one of those typical ugly sweaters your great grandma will make you for your birthday. And Dawid, who won the competition, had a Santa sweater including beard and hat. 25400884_1560343360720996_182747180_o

Because not enough people saw all our nice ugly Christmas sweaters, we went again to the Met to show off our sweaters. We were not the only ones dressed that ugly. In fact, the whole pub was packed with a lot of people wearing ugly Christmas sweaters. After all our songs it was time to head home.

If you want to show even more people your ugly Christmas sweater, come to the Christmas party dressed up. Or when you already threw it away, wear your nicest Christmas clothes instead. Whatever you are going to wear, I hope to see you this Saturday for our Christmas party!
