Pub-Night Review

Another Wednesday has come and gone and what a fun night it has been again to see everyone but also so many new faces at Pub Night! 

IMG_0328.jpgThis week we went to the Two Parrots. They had reserved a whole gallery by the windows for us and created a new sort of space for us – a circular table setting in which many of us started out with some great food and drinks. Having become a dark beer enthusiast lately, I tried a Stanley Park Brewery special which had the greatest taste – a combination of the typical dark beer flavour, stripped off the extreme bitterness some dark beers might have, in addition with a nice taste of sweetness. Lovely, especially in combination with the very Canadian dish of Poutine!

As the evening went by, it was great to see so many of our Newbies joining, getting introduced to the group and mingling with everyone – I actually heard that some of them ended up on a bull that night and were also properly introduced to the Yale tradition by some of our “senior” participants. All in all a good night with lots of drinks, food and lovely chats! ☺Please be reminded of our very important Pub Night
next week, which will lead us to the Cambie, which is not only Vancouver’s oldest bar, but also a historic setting for legendary Beer Pong tournaments. Next week, especially, the motto will be: All in, we can only win!!

Se y’all very soon, have a wonderful week! ☺

– Felicitas

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 Review

Thank you guys! This was such a fun night!

Last night we went to The Cambie Bar & Grill, to check out this well known location ourselves. Even though I haven’t been to Vancouver for that long, I’ve heard many stories about it. And to be honest, as I heard they host a beer pong tournament on Wednesdays, I knew we would have to go there.  IMG_4553.JPG

Drinks went down well and the food was delicious. Especially the free nachos were appreciated :-D. Thanks again to the neighbour table, who clearly underestimated the “monster” nachos! As we all had some time to talk about how life has been treating us so far, the real serious stuff came up – what teams to make for the beer pong tournament. After long discussions, INTERNeX sent 3 teams into the race.
As this was all about fun, we realized pretty early, that some other teams take this way more serious than others … ;-).  So the INTERNeX crew had to stand together in this tournament after all. It ended up in a European (which was us) against not-European battle. We even made it to the final!
Only then we got told, that the winning team will get free “Cambie Shirts” …. motivation was on!

Unfortunately we lost that one very fast and kinda obvious. I’ll have to admit, we didn’t stand a chance against the CRAZY team we had to face. Congratulation guys, well played.  

IMG_4560.JPGEven though INTERNeX couldn’t bring home this cup, we still enjoyed it very much. And I still made a winning experience, I had my first fireball, what an experience! To be honest – I definitely expected worse, I even liked it. 

So thank you very much guys! This has been a great night. Can’t wait to see you all again at next weeks PuB-Night at the Portside Pub. 

Cheers,

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,

How was your Weekend?

Who said fall in Vancouver is all rainy? All I can see is the beautiful sun, blue sky and all these sun-loaded energetic people. So this weekend I finally got to see the stunning Stanley Park. This is probably everything but an inside tip, but just go out there, rent a bike and see it yourself. In case are you not the sporty kind of person, there is also the very nice Stanley Park Brewing, which I can recommend just as much ;-).
But the true highlight of the past weekend, was clearly the Haunted House. And I am saying this as a person, that gets scared super easily, but even than – this was an insane Halloween experience to be made! It took us quite a while, to get to the place, where the Halloween magic happens. 
IMG_4250.JPG
As we were waiting in the queue, a great show was already provided. Dancing mummies, and monsters made the time fly by. And already here I got the first heart attack, as some of the actors, jumped up from behind and wandered through the people, giving us some scary looks and good frights. As plans were made, like who is to leave behind, and at what points we should be smarter than people in all these horror movies, it was finally time to go in. And I promise you, I was screaming my soul out. Since I do not want to spoil this too much, I am keeping the descriptions short. But I can still feel my heart beating as if it is about to jump out any minute. Different rooms with different themes and multiple nightmare celebrities, basically chased us through the halls of the haunted house. After all it was absolutely worth the time effort we had to put in this trip.
After all I feel ready to get into the next Halloween adventure. The upcoming Halloween party, might not be as frightening as the Haunted House, but this is finally the chance for everybody to dress up themselves. And you never know, who might be hiding around the next corner of the Blarney Stone on Thursday! 
See you there. 
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.

How was your weekend?

Can I share a little secret with you? My weekend was most likely longer than yours. It existed of almost 3 instead of 2 days. Why and what did I do during those days? Well, here’s the story of my weekend:

On Friday, I stopped working at 12pm. Kerstin, Angy and I took the opportunity to see something special in the afternoon. We went to the Abbotsford Tulip Festival. Located in the Fraser Valley, visitors get the chance to see a big field of tulips. Like, a really big field of tulips. We were lucky, because the flowers were in high bloom (and still are). Everywhere I looked, it was colourful. Words can’t describe the beauty of it. Fun fact: tulips are my favourite flowers, so being there was more than just super duper exciting for me.

In the evening, we went for dinner at 131 Water. After finishing a delicious meal, it was time to play some games. UNO and Rummikub were fun to play and everyone won at least once or twice.

Saturday, 1pm. It was time for our INTERNeX event: Dutchie for a Day. We started with delicious and typical Dutch food at De Dutch Robson. Some enjoyed pannenkoeken (pancakes), others tosti’s or uitsmijters. Then, it was time to be active. Like real Dutch people, we went biking. And where can you do this better than around the Sea Wall at Stanley Park? It was a bit rainy, but that made the event even more authentic. And of course, we tested the knowledge of our candidates about the Netherlands. At the end, team Batman won with 12 correct answers out of 20. Congratulations guys!

In the evening, we met up with some of you to go out. First, we all went to Bourbon in Gastown for some drinks, to play giant Jenga and to dance. Afterwards, we went to the Republic Night Club at Granville Street. But not by foot. Not by bus. Not by sky train. No, we decided to use a Limo! What a fun and cheap way to get from A to B.

At 3am on Sunday, we all went home. This time with a taxi. And Sunday was actually a day of recovery from the night before. My bed was my best friend until 2pm. But I didn’t want to waste a day inside, so I took a shower and went with Kerstin to Metropolis to do some shopping. And I was successful: 2 new T-shirts and cozy short pants to sleep in.

I hope you all had a great weekend, too (even though you ‘only’ had 2 days) and I’m looking forward to see you all at our PuB NiGHT at the Beaver on Wednesday!
