How was Pub Night?

Yeehaw!! I don’t even know where to start…it was sooo much fun! Last night we went to the Yale Saloon and I think it’s the first country bar I’ve been to and probably not the last one. 😀
I was told to brace myself for a lot of action and yeah…it wasn’t a “relaxing” Pub Night with only food and some drinks at all.

Right after ordering our first drinks the fun part already started. We did Line Dancing! I really didn’t expect it to be so much fun. For those of you who didn’t know yet: Line dancing is a choreographed country dance.img_5910
So first an instructor taught us the choreography step by step and when he said that we’re gonna do it with some music now I was really nervous because I didn’t feel ready. And as expected I messed up in the beginning because it was so much faster than before! But since the steps are repeating I could get myself back into it. It still was a little chaos on the dance floor though 😀

img_5905After a couple more drinks my highlight of the evening started…the BULL RIDING. Some of you guys said it’s a ritual for the new ones to do it so I had no choice but I’m glad I tried it. Let’s stick with “tried” because I wasn’t really good at it, although I guess it is the thought that counts – right? 😉
My biggest worry was not even getting on the bull but I did it (well not really elegant but never mind!)
It was so great to see how everyone cheered for the others! I love the INTERNeX team spirit! ❤
Furthermore we played some pool and some guys even used the punching bag to show how strong they are (or not? – just kidding :D) I really enjoyed it and hope you had as much fun as me!

So this was definitely NOT my last time at the Yale Saloon and I can’t wait to go back.

Thanks so much! xx  

Cheers,

PuB NiGHT Review: The Yagger’s

Shine bright like a diamond it is Thursday! I hope everyone is feeling great after last night. Once again we had a great pub night with awesome people. Wednesdays are one of the highlights of the week for me because I love to spend time with a big INTERNeX gang and find out how everyone is doing. Let’s see how our last night went.img_20190411_160416-e1555024066260.jpg

This week it was time to try out the Yagger’s downtown. It is located at West Pender Street in a fairly central location. The night started at 8pm as usual and not too soon after that our tables were full of INTERNeX people. We also had some new peeps joining our gang this weeks and it was great to see some of them at the Pub Night. All in all we stayed at the Yagger’s for a couple of hours, had some drinks, food, and great conversations.dav

After the Yagger’s we continued the night at, you could say our regular after party place, The Yale. Everyone was hyped about the Bull that you can ride there. Too bad for us the bull was not working last night, so we had to manage without it, and that’s exactly what we did. Once again we surrounded the pool table and had some games against each other. It is a good practise since we are playing pool pretty much every week al though I feel like I’ve just became worst every single week. Maybe some day I’ll be a pro too.

Thanks for everyone who showed up and thanks for a great night!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Two Parrots

What a night. The Two Parrots, awesome INTERNeX gang, the Yale Saloon, pool and some line dancing; what else do you need to make a boring Wednesday night into a great party night? Nothing!dav

As mentioned above we started the night gathering up at the Two Parrots which is located at Granville. Once again a lot of people showed up and we were even having some struggles fitting our huge group to the tables reserved for us. This wasn’t really a problem for us since we are not afraid to squeeze in and make some room for more people. I think there were around 20 of us all together.

When the night was coming closer to midnight our group moved the party one block away to the Yale Saloon. This time there was a pretty big group of us still at the Yale. Sadly for us the legendary bull was not in use ☹ We still managed to find out other things to do. We were playing pool and at some point there was a line dancing course happening at the dance floor. For most of us it was the first time learning line dancing but I bet we will be pros in that in the end of the summer!

Once again it was nice to hang at the Yale since our group was basically the only one present. It almost felt like a private party. I feel like Yale is becoming a tradition for the INTERNeX gang on Wednesdays. We will see what happens. Although the night was awesome and everyone had fun it was time to say goodbye to Jesper since this pub night was his last one. We will miss you Jesper!

Tomorrow is Game Night time! Make sure to show up to the office at 6pm to join for some fun games ☺

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

Last night was very eventful. We started our PuB NiGHT off at the Beaver Bar, which is located right in the centre of downtown at Granville St. The INTERNeX gang was well presented as 20 of us in total showed up. Since everyone was having a blast we didn’t want the night to end so some of us continued the night at the Met.image.png

On Wednesdays the Beaver has a bingo night and at least I was super excited about it because I haven’t been playing bingo since I can remember. The Canucks were playing last night and the game was showed at the bar so we needed to wait for the game to end before the bingo could start. The end of the game was really good tho so we didn’t mind waiting for a bit. After the Canucks took the win with the score of 7-4 it was time for the Music Bingo. We all got our own Bingo sheets and we were ready to start. Last night the INTERNeX gang was feeling super lucky and we did not only win once but twice!

After three rounds of Bingo we decided to change the bar. Some of us went home and about half still continued to the Met. I had never been there before so it was nice to see some new places. As weird as it sounds I’d say the time we spent at the Met was somehow really active. First we played some table tennis sadly ending up loosing all the Ping-Pong balls. The Met has Karaoke so of course we had to take a part of that too. We also played some pool and Lukas even played one round of Flipper.

We really took everything out of last night and now it is time to turn our heads towards the upcoming events. This weekend we are visiting the Vancouver Fashion week which I am super excited about! There will also be more information about the amazing Rockies trip coming soon.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, enjoy the sunny day!

Smart Saver Vancouver

Summer has arrived, so it is time to go outside and do some fun activities. Good news is that you don’t have to spend (too much) money to join the fun. Here are some ideas for your free time.

I am sure you have already heard about the famous outdoor cinema, which takes place every Tuesday at Second Beach in Stanley Park. We just went there yesterday and watched The Lion King, it was a lot of fun! Next week, Mean Girls is on the program. Just take a blanket and some snacks with you and enjoy the movie.

37298454_1806962999396722_1371304262142787584_nDo you always have plans on Tuesday nights? No problem, you can also watch an outdoor movie on Thursdays at the Waterfront Cinema at Canada Place. Movies are shown until the end of August. Tomorrow, from 9.10pm on, the movie COCO will be on the screen. You can find the entire movie line-up here. Make sure you arrive early to reserve yourself a good spot.

Another great activity for hot summer days is of course swimming or at least splashing. You can cool down in one of the five outdoor swimming pools that are spread over the city:

  • Kitsilano Pool
  • Maple Groove Pool (South Vancouver)
  • Hillcrest Aquatic Centre (close to Queen Elisabeth Park)
  • New Brighton Pool
  • Second Beach Pool (Stanley Park)

You can check out all location details and opening hours here. Admission fee for one visit is $6.10, except for Maple Grove Pool – only $3 for this one. If you are planning to go more often, you can also purchase a 10-visit pass for $48.80. You get 25% off the regular price, when you show up with a group of 10+ people. So, time to gather your friends and save some money!

14583004328_d24ee0c590_nWhy spend the evening in the gym when you can also work out in the fresh air? Just dance the night away during free Zumba classes. Canada Place is again the place-to-be for this activity. The one-hour classes take place every Monday until August 27 and start at 5.30pm. And no worries – you don’t have to be a dance pro. Everyone is welcome to join the fun workout with a view.

Next to Zumba, you can also enjoy free Yoga classes. Mat Collective Yoga offers outdoor classes at diverse great locations in Vancouver. You can either join a class downtown in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery, in East Van, at Kits Beach or even on Granville Island. Different kinds of classes are offered every day until the end of August. So you could even go daily without even spending a loonie. Check out the live schedule here. Keep in mind that you need to sign a waiver before you join a class. However, you don’t need to sign up, just get in your sport clothes and take part in the class at unique locations!

I hope I could help you save some money! See you tonight at The Relish – where you get a beer for $3, by the way ;-).
