PuB-Night Review

Isn’t it weird how the night from Wednesday to Thursday always feels so much shorter than any other weeknight?! 
IMG_5648.JPGAnyways even though I am bit tired, I had a pretty good night last night again! 🙂
We went to the La Casita, which doesn’t just sound Mexican, but actually took us on a little trip down to Mexico right away. The music, the decorations, the drinks – everything was just perfectly getting you in the right vibe. 
So after some fantastic food, we made our way through the margarita menu. So that even our Danish margarita queen found something new to experience ;P. 
But there is still one massive question that has been bothering me ever since and unfortunately I couldn’t find an answer last night … so when do I get sugar and when do I get salt on the edge of my margarita glass?? So if anyone could please get me out of this sinister hole of cluelessness, please leave me a message. IMG_5638.JPG
Anyways Pub-Night wouldn’t be Pub-Night, if we wouldn’t have moved on to a different location to continue the celebrations of togetherness. Out of the two big favourites, we chose to go to the Cambie this time. Sorry Yale – Saloon, but you will probably see us soon enough anyways.  
A very exhausting game of Pac-Man, brought me closer to nervous break down than I ever wanted to be. Maybe it’s not really who we play against (literally any game), maybe it’s the Cambie itself, that brings out the most competitive side in everyone :D. (Careful, this was an inside joke and might test your loyalty to this blog).
However, afterwards we moved on to the Dance Floor and since we’ve got it all to ourselves, “dancing like nobody watches you”, wasn’t a phrase anymore :D. 
And I won’t lie, we learned some incredible and unique dance moves to show off at the next club visit. Usually you get three types of people on the dane floor. Type 1 would be the “right-tip-left-tip” type, so more the classical “I like to dance, but I am not going wild tonight” kind of A1488CFB-1F64-47F7-B4C9-BA97CC3DF34C.JPGdancer. Type two, which is the “move-your-hips” type, clearly knowing what they are doing and actually looking good doing it, simply born with rhythm in their blood. And then you get the “getting-jealous-looks-because-their-dancing-looks-like-so-much-fun-but-you-get-funny-looks-for-doing-it” type of dancers. (Wow what a handy and short name, well done Nadja.. getting right to the point here!).  
So I think all of us just transformed into type number three and honestly I don’t think I can ever go back from there! 😀
Thank you guys for honouring me with your presence :D. 
See you next week! 
Cheers,

How was your Weekend?

The first full week of January is about to start, and this means for most of you – let’s get back to work!
Let’s do it guys! 

This weekend the INTERNeX crew went to the Stanley Park Brewery. Located right in Stanley Park (as the name might have spoilered already), this very romantic, beautiful place provided us a beautiful evening. 

IMG_5613.JPGWe got to eat a fantastic dinner and of course got try out some different sort of beers brewed right there. One fly included 4 different kinds of beers, which you got to choose from a menu of 16 different beers. A variety I was clearly overwhelmed with. Whereas others actually made  logical decision based on the very fancy descriptions for every beer, I sticked to trusting the waiter with all my heart or just going for wild, slightly random picks. Cleary I am not a professional beer taster yet, even tho this little fancy glasses made you feel like one.  However, have you ever tried Coffee-beer? I just loved it, so in case you don’t know what to choose, this is definitely something I can recommend. And trust me, I actually sounds wilder than it tastes. 

After the dinner we went on to The Cambie, where we went back to the beer-classics and had some nice chats, while listening to a bit strange mix of music.
Thank you guys for a lovely Saturday!   

Next weekend we will be playing Lasertag, so whoever isn’t afraid to face my very professional ninja-skills is more than welcome to sign up for it on Facebook. And yes, once again  you will have to agree to this very huge and intense commitment of clicking the going button on Facebook (I know I am asking a lot here), if you want to be part of this battle of a century. 

If you have any question you can always message us or ask me at this weeks Pub-Night at the La Casita!

Have a wonderful week, 

Cheers

The Year has come to an End!

MerryXmasBanner[2703].png

I know it’s a bit late for this, but better now than never:
Thank you for such a great Christmas Party everyone. I’ll have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people showing up, but somehow, we still managed.  Extra big thank you to the ones, that brought homemade food to share with everyone, this has truly been my personal highlight. Also thank you for bringing such creative and cool gifts for the Secret Santa, I hope everyone got to take something nice home in the end. (You should have seen me decorating those Gingerbread men I got, it was as if I’d be the happiest kid in the world.)
Besides that, we had some pretty good Beer-pong games going on.
After a while we moved on to the Cambie, as a nice last joined Pub-visit for this year. Also, this was the night of many farewells. To those leaving this beautiful country in the upcoming days or maybe left already: It was a pleasure meeting you guys and you will be missed! I hope you are having a wonderful reunion with your family and friends and that you think back to the time here in Canada with a smile on your lips <3.
Thank you for this crazy, overwhelming, funny, adventurous 2019 you all. Looking back there was so much going on and every single one of you made it as special as it was.  And because of that (and because you just can’t live without new blogposts right :D?!), we got something great for you in the upcoming days. From tomorrow onwards we are going to have a little flashback through the last year. So be ready and take a minute or two to reminisce with us!
Don’t miss it.

But most important, INTERNeX obviously wishes you a very happy holiday and a fantastic start into the new year.

Love

– Nadja xx

PuB Night Review

Wow, wow, wow. You guys are crazy! But I love it! It was my very first PuB Night and I was definatly not expecting the turn up we had. I was lovely meeting so many new faces and it makes me love Vancouver so much more knowing I get to spend my Wednesday nights with you!

IMG_5234.jpegThis PuB-Night started off to be a bit more classy than the usual PuB-Nights are. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, which is a restaurant and not a PuB, but you know … sometimes we do crazy stuff and break the rules ;-D!

Spread across two full tables we enjoyed a 3 course meal; entree, main and dessert along with some sneaky cocktails to wash it all down. The service was brilliant and were always asking if we needed more drinks (which is always necessary for PuB Night XD) The drinks were surprisingly cheap as we had Long Island ice tea on special and yummy banana mamas for only $6.

There was many discussion around the table about how late we were going to party till tonight as last Wednesday was quite late.

IMG_5252.jpgTime didn’t seem an issue as the night went on and we moved to The Cambie . It’s difficult to go home when the group vibes are too good. Beer Pong is always a great way to bring the group together and have a tournament. We were clearly having too much fun as other people around the bar wanted a turn and soon became friends with strangers. It was the last game, the finale and it was INTERNeX V.s Australians, sadly, they won but they gave the winning money to INTERNeX who turned the money into …… you guessed it, FIREBALL SHOTS. We thank those random Australians for their good sports.

The Cambie wasn’t the last stop, as the night went on we moved the party to Roxy where we shared more drinks and danced the night away. Overall it was a great first PuB Night and we thank those who came along to join the fun.

It was my first PuB Night and I couldn’t have summed it up any better. I love spending time with my INTERNeX group and you all made me feel so welcomed! I will be looking forward to many more crazy nights with you!

PuB-Night at the Portside Pub

No New Kids on the Blog this week.
But the good thing is, there will be a PuB-Night. Tonight we’ll meet up at the Portside Pub, which is one of the most well known places in town!  The Portside Pub is all about the maritime lifestyle. Which is clearly one we should take a look at living so close to the ocean right?! I mean, there is truly a reason, that many people always make their way to the oceans, no matter if it’s for a holiday or a once-in-a-lifetime-experience with INTERNeX!
Ship.jpg
Once upon a time, there was a man living on the sea, on a ship, having a drink or two and just enjoying life as it came along. Well to be fair, it’s never been just one man…it’s been so many. And all of these stories talk about the fantastic, easy and joyful life men of the sea have.

Now I guess, we might not want a life like this forever, but we why not take one night to escape the life as we know it? And I mean, we don’t just want to get drinks anywhere right? It has to be special in a way!

Therefore Ahoy my friends and see you tonight at the Portside Pub. Make sure to get the directions and times on Facebook and don’t be shy to make use of the “going” button ;-). 
Cheers and see you tonight!

Halloween-Party Review

Weeks of preparation have come to an end! The big night was finally here, all these hours of costume shopping and watching of make-up tutorials truly paid off. We looked stunning, guys! And I just want to make a big shout out to the Blarney Stone. Decorations, drinks, food and the party vibe were on point! IMG_4406.JPG
As our night started, we first got some food to be prepared for everything else happening afterwards. Apparently the Poutine is one of the best you can get in town and as we all know definitely a must try! Alongside the food and drinks, everybody was chatting and laughing, having a good time reviewing the highlights of the past week. As we got distracted by the live band starting off with some good hits. Clearly nobody could sit still for a very long time, so we got up and hit the dance floor. The band didn’t just have a great choice of songs, but also a pretty unique interpretation of it, which I loved. Therefore you just had to get up, jump, dance and go wild! Pub and dance-floor were crowded and pretty much everybody within the pub dressed up like crazy. I have never seen such inspiring and funny costumes before. I think my personal favourite  was a guy dressed as a taco. 
As is got later, we decided to change the location. And I am pretty sure you can guess, were we headed to?! Right, the Yale Saloon, what else could it be. But to be honest, for me it was the first time there, so I was really excited to see the INTERNeXer’s favourite location myself. And what should I say? –  I was riding that bull. To be fair, not really good, but something tells me everyone else had a little bit more time to practice. So I am trying not to be too hard on myself here. Anyways, I am pretty sure I’ll get some more time to practise and one day I might even beat you guys, who know’s ;-). a4a90cf4-fcdf-4de5-a46c-2205bc37cbf4.JPG
Big thank you to everyone who joined and made it a great night to be remembered! Photo and Video material has been provided on Instagram, so go and check it out yourself. 
This Sunday we will a get the chance to calm down a bit and enjoy the beauty of Granville Island. So I a looking forward to see you around.
And of course, don’t forget about next weeks PuB-Night, taking place at the Cambie Bar & Grill. 
Till then,
Cheers,

PuB-Night review

What a fun night!

Since this was my first PuB-Night ever, I am so impressed by the amount of people I met last night! Thank you for being so nice and welcoming!

IMG_4148The beaver, located on Granville Street, is definitely a place worth checking out! Even tho we were such a big group the stuff didn’t get tired to run up and down the stairs constantly. The Pub itself is a really nice place, just making you feel the canadian spirit.  A personal recommendation are the nachos! So good. Thanks again for getting me amped on them ;-).
Later we went on to playing some music bingo, apparently that’s the thing to do, when you visit the beaver on a Wednesday night. And I have to admit, this wasn’t the last time of me playing bingo in here. Some of us were even lucky enough to win and got into the joy of having some shots or even a pitcher for free! I think we can agree in having a pretty good night out this week!

After the long Thanksgiving weekend everybody was so happy to be around each other again. And besides me, there were some new faces to be welcomed in the group. Therefore a special welcome to you guys and thanks for coming!

But don’t worry the next Canadian highlight is already set. Since Halloween is such a big thing here, we should het the chance to get into some crazy costumes for our upcoming Halloween Party! Therefore, and because I am personally very excited to get to know you guys a little bit better, we’ll see each other on the weekend and go do some costume shopping together!
And I am promising you, the Halloween-vibe around here is just on another level!

I hope you are having a great day and see you soon.
