Lasertag and Karaoke Re-cap!

How did you spend your Labour Day? 12 INTERNeX candidates met up and had an amazing day playing Lasertag and singing their lungs out at Karaoke!Thanks everyone for coming out yesterday to our Lasertag and Karaoke night!

We arrived at Laserdome at 4.30 and we were able to start our Lasertag game. In total we played 3 games and had a lot of fun. Before each game we were divided into different groups and we were sent out to ‘kill’ as many people as possible.  Each of us had a vest on and a gun in our hands. The vest had several targets on them. They would light up a color (your team color) and you would have to shoot everyone that did not have the same color as you. There were some people (Adam!) that were really into it and they were even rolling around on the floor trying to shoot people. If you were shot than you were ‘dead’ for a few seconds and then you are back in the game again.  If you shot someone the gun would say:’ Good shot’ and you would earn 150 points for your team. If you got shot you would lose 75 points. You also had an individual score to see who was got the highest score of the group. For our group that was newcomer Youp! He just arrived in Vancouver and came out with us to meet new people.

After lasertag everyone was pretty hungry so we made our way back to Downtown and got a nice meal at Malone’s on West Pender Street. Most of us at a burger and fries, something I would totally recommend you to do!

After dinner it was time for Karaoke. We went to Fantacity, a Korean/Japanese style karaoke. This meant that we had our own room with a giant TV and two microphones. Everyone sung at least 2 songs and had a lot of fun doing it! We had songs ranging from Fame to the Real Slim Shady and some good, and some bad singers. Want to hear some of the songs we sang? Check Nathalie’s Facebook page for the video’s she posted online. On the INTERNeX Facebook site and our Flick Page you can view the pictures from the entire night!

Tomorrow is PuBNiGHT, a night that is also filled with music. But this time you don’t have to sing yourself. So meet us at the Blarney Stone at 8.30 pm for some games, laughs and beers!

Summer 2010 List

So now that I am done all my final exams and papers I have started to put together a list of all the places, activities, foods, etc I am determined to do/try. Once I have completed these items I will let you know about them and give you a little bit of an introduction to these list items and perhaps you could try them yourself!

1) Number one on my list, surprise surprise it involves food. As some of you know today is my 22nd birthday so I have taken the entire day off to celebrate and I am filling it with all the things that I love. Starting off the day with a nice session at the Steve Nash Gym cause I am going to be indulging in some serious treats and I want to feel guilt free when I do. After my gym session I will be heading over with some of my friends to the Medina Cafe located downtown at556 Beatty Street, between Pender & Dunsmuir.

This quaint little cafe is known around the city for its unique bistro-inspired food served simply and conveniently in a comfortable, chic environment reflecting the lifestyle and desires of the neighbourhood and Vancouver at large. Medina provides a fresh and eclectic alternative with a pioneering attitude towards café culture.
Sister to neighbouring night time hot spot Chambar, Medina is a quaint café serving connoisseur-savvy coffee, Belgian waffles for sweet sustenance and a full breakfast, lunch, and brunch menu comprised of eclectic dishes created by co-owner and chef, Nico Schuermans.

When I go later I will for sure be trying their infamous Lavender Latte, will let you know how it goes!

2) The other week after my last final I headed out with one of my good friends to just have a great meal at one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets. Locate on the vibrant Davie Street at 1326.

This small Mexican Restaurant boasts some of the best food in the area and offers some reasonably priced menu items. I recommend starting off with the guacamole dip which comes with several layers of flavorful dips and a side of oven baked tortilla chips. Oh and of course you need some drinks to start the whole thing off!

Lolita’s is famous for its pint sized sangria cocktails filled with lots of tropical fruit to sink your teeth in. I might have had a few of those so I highly recommend those, they make you feel like your sipping them somewhere tropical. Its nice way to temporarily escape from your realities. After the appetizers, we moved onto the main course and we decided to share the halibut tacos…yum! After that meal were stuffed but the atmosphere was just so relaxed that we ended up staying there for a few hours. This restaurant is a little hidden so keep your eyes out for it! Great place for a date night too *winkwink*

Ciao for now

Tinseltown-Dinner & A Movie Anyone?

So looking for something to do this weekend!? Well there are lots of parties to go to this long weekend…but if you don’t think you can make it through all four nights partying, then maybe a a dinner and a movie might be a good way to spend one of the nights. And I can think of more than a few movies that might be of interest. If you guys haven’t already been to Tinseltown Cinemark (located at 88 West Pender Street) then you’ve been missing out! This theater has the city’s most comfortable seats ever and some of the best priced tickets too (if you go on a Tuesday Night, which is Cheap Movie Night, then you can watch a movie for just $8.75…can’t get much better than that!). Some of the movies that are headlining down at Tinseltown are…

“Green Zone”, featuring the dreamy Matt Damon or if you are looking for something a little more lighthearted perhaps “The Bounty Hunter” starring Jennifer Aniston & Gerard Butler. Two movies that are actually premiering this Friday are “Max Manus” which is actually a Norwegian film that tells the true story of one of Europe’s most celebrated World War II-era resistance fighters. And then other movie premiering is “Repo Men” which has an all star cast, including Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber etc

So if any of those sound interesting or you want to check out all of the over movies playing around Vancouver check out this amazing website!

New INTERNeX PuB NiGHT Location

Hey everyone, just wrapping up my last few tasks before out PuB NiGHT. But i have some good news for you guys…we have a new location! I’ve gotten a lot of really great feedback from you guys and have decided to have our new location at Malone’s Bar & Grill. This bar is located at 608 Pender Street and is a great student hang-out since it is close to all the downtown language schools. We will be meeting up at this location on Monday Jan. 25th at an earlier time 0f 7pm  just because we have heard that it can get pretty busy early and we do not want to run the risk of anyone not getting in. So hope you all can make it! and keep checking our facebook and blog page for more updates.
