PUB NIGHT REVIEW

Fore last night was Trivia Night at Moose’s Down Under. We had a lot of fun and we really tried our best to answer at least some questions but most of them were so specific that our general knowledge wasn’t enough. 22185858802_8ba211742b_bLooks like we all need to study up some more! I actually wouldn’t have expected that it’s so hard to answer the questions right although I was warned about that before. Nevertheless it was lots of fun guessing the different kind of issues. To be honest we were guessing almost every time or actually we would have known more if they had accepted the German answers as well. Even at the mini games in between the four quiz rounds we were so bad though actually the only thing you need to win these games is a bit of luck. Since our group was knocked out after every first round of mini games we obviously hadn’t that much luck. We had to split up into two teams because we were too many people and you are only allowed to play in a group of 6 participants to win the jackpot. For us it didn’t matter … we were too bad anyways.

On Saturday we will meet up to prepare for Halloween. There are only two weeks left therefore it is time to find a suitable outfit for this occasion. Did you already think about a Halloween costume? I informed myself about the Halloween trends 2015. As I read, the most popular costume trends include superheroes (e.g. Batman, Superman), science fiction stars (e.g. Star Wars characters), the Minions and throwback Thursday outfits (e.g. back to 90s outfits).As far as I’m concerned I prefer a “traditional” costume such as zombies or other spooky creatures. But we will see what the stores have plenty to offer.

Let’s get in a terrifying Halloween mood by shopping some costumes on Saturday.

Looking forward to Halloween!

PuB NiGHT Review – Trivia Night @ Moose’s Down Under

Our team Die Gummibärenbande tried its best to answer last night’s trivia questions but some of them were really difficult. Looks like we all need to study up some more!

It was still lots of fun guessing at random questions and playing the mini games in between.
After the trivia event ended some of us got into talking about television shows we used to watch when we were children. We had shows like the Teletubbies, Power Rangers and also series specific to our own countries come up. That was quite a nostalgic ride back into our childhoods!

Soon after Moose’s Down Under was beginning to close up so we decided to move on to the next place, especially because since it was Laura’s, one of our INTERNeXers, last night in Canada. We went to her favorite pub the Blarney Stone! Here we had a couple more farewell drinks while everyone wrote goodbye notes on a flag to remember us by.
Eventually, we had to reluctantly call it a night and parted ways with promises of a reunion someday.
You always meet twice, right?

 

Cheers

PuB NiGHT Review

PuB NiGHT @ Moose’s Down Under

We throw our hands up in defeat!
For the second time, we braved the stage of trivia at Moose’s Down Under for the weekly Pub Night with 2 of our teams. One team name was Schwarzwälderkirsch Torte (just because we wanted toIMG_1729 mess with the game master when she called out our team) and the other was named Trivia-Noobs. No name could have been truer for this night.

By the way, Schwarzwälderkirsch Torte which is German and means Blackforest Cake , actually put up a decent fight. While…well, let’s leave it at that. 😀

Even so, we tried our best and still managed to scrap together some points at least!

After the trivia games ended we stuck around for a little but eventually moved on to Cambie’s for more fun and drinks.
Again we had a great time meeting new people and getting to know them better.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

 
Cheers!

 

Review: Pub Night @ Moose’s Down Under

Yesterday we went for a great pub night at Moose’s Down Under Bar and Grill. On this evening a bit of extra entertainment was delivered by a couple of groups participating in the Weekly Trivia. They were enthusiastically competing in general knowledge. Every now and then people cheered loudly because someone managed to answer a difficult question. Apparently somebody also celebrated his or her birthday which added a bit bit extra to the cheerful atmosphere.

The bar served all kinds of interesting drinks of which the names probably shouldn’t be spelled out here. Let’s just say that quite a few of the names of course referred to sex… you can guess the rest. The Australian inspired food was good and nicely served by the friendly and sometimes a bit entertaining staff at Moose’s Down Under.

Once again, it was great to see a lot of you Internex members turning up. It was also very nice to hear about all of your travel experiences. Hope you all had a good evening, and hope to see you again for yet another pub night next Wednesday at 7pm as always. Click here to view a few more pictures from the evening at Moose’s Down Under.

Review: Pub and Club Night @ Public Library Square

Last Friday we went out for our fantastic pub and club night at Public Library Square.  This was also our pr-intern Alexandra’s last night out in Vancouver and surely she had a good time. Some of us tried out the food that this pub has to offer, while others chose to have a few beers. We all had a nice time chatting a bit about life in Vancouver and how everybody’s doing at work. It was really good to see a couple of new faces… I’m sure you guys are excited about what’s going to happen for the next couple of weeks. I’m sure that you’ll be doing great in whatever jobs or positions that you’ll be working during your stay.

Later during the evening the dinner tables were removed to make space for the dance floor, and the bar was open for cool drinks and tasty beers. It was time to dance the night away! An 80s and 90s party was fired up by the Library Square, and this was definitely something popular. During the evening more and more people flocked to the dance floor. Thanks to everybody who showed up for this great night out in Vancouver, I hope to see you again tomorrow for our pub night at Moose’s Down Under.

Pub Night Announcement

This Wednesday we’ll have an entertaining pub night, so hope that you’ve recovered from our pub and club night last Friday. And to those of you who didn’t go last Friday; I hope to see you see you for a great evening. The pub night will take place at the Australian inspired Moose’s Down Under Bar and Grill at 7pm. This pub night will be a bit special and entertaining since the weekly trivia is on. This means that there’ll be a very energetic quiz where teams challenge each other in general knowledge. But don’t worry, there’s no entry fee. The food prizes are reasonable and, even better, if you’re 18 you can still get in!

So, what’s on the menu? Well, you can of course choose between several different Australian inspired dishes. For instance you can get an Aussie Meat pie or an Aussie Burger. You can also choose other dishes than Australian. Moose’s Down Under serves a great variety of food. You might want to try out one of the burgers on offer… Moose’s Down Under is supposedly renown for making good burgers.

Moose’s Down Under Bar and Grill is located at Basement 830 West Pender Street, just 4 minutes walk from Granville Station.

Directions from Granville Station

Looking forward to see you for another great pub night!

PuB NiGHT Review

This time we headed out to the Mooses Down Under for some drinks and food. Mooses Down Under is a Australian Pub located on West Pender just next to the Pacific Centre.

The early birds under us were lucky to still order from the appy hour menu, they went for Oz fries and a drink for $5.95. The appy hour is every day from 4pm – 7pm. We chatted of course about the Rockies trip and how great it is going to be! Since some of you have to take the public transit you were worried about how to get to the meeting point on Friday. But no worries anymore thanks to Westtrek we will now meet at 8:00am on Friday!
During the Rockies trip we will also launch a photo contest, so keep an eye on the blog for more information! The winner will be chosen during our After Rockies Party!

See you Friday at 8:00am in front of Waterfront station
