PuB NiGHT REVIEW: The Keefer Bar

We spent a really lovely evening at The Keefer Bar, although we were just four people.

The Keefer Bar is a pretty cool place with a cozy atmosphere.IMG_2628 From the outside you wouldn’t really recognize that there is such a fancy place but as soon as you walk through the door everything changes. Compared to the “standard” pubs/restaurants/ bars here in Vancouver the bar is very special and the concept is completely different. They managed to create something extraordinary.

As we went there only a few guests sat at the bar but shortly every seat was occupied even so it wasn’t crowded. You could talk in a normal voice although they had a DJ playing cool music.

The staff was awesome, funny and friendly. In addition the cocktails I tried were pretty odd but very tasty. Hadn’t expect that it would taste that good.

We all can highly recommend this bar.

Review: Pub Night @ The Lennox Pub

Yesterday we had yet another good pub night.

This time we met at the Irish pub the Lennox Pub in downtown Vancouver. The weather was a bit cooler compared to the nice sunny and hot weather the last couple weeks but fortunately there was plenty of space for us inside the cozy Irish pub. It was nice to see all of you who showed up for the pub night. A couple of us chose to try out the pub’s food while others just tried out some of the pub’s tasty and delicious selection of beers. We were lucky that the pub had a few special offers on beers this evening.

While getting something to drink and eat we had a really good time chatting about various topics. It was great to hear how everybody is doing in their different projects,  and what kind experiences and adventures everybody’s had in Canada as well as in other places around the world. Those who met up but didn’t have the chance to go to our Rockies trip also got the chance to hear a bit about some of the very good moments from this amazing trip. We’re definitely looking forward to our next great trip, and we hope to see just as many joining the trip. It will be awesome!

It would be great to even more people turn up for our next pub night. We’re definitely looking forward to yet another good evening in good company next Wednesday.

PuB Night @ the Beach Review

Yesterday we had our PuB Night at the Sunset beach. 

We met at 6pm, however some of us joined later. Since it wasn’t as hot as the days before it was really nice when we arrived there, but it got a little cold after the sun was down.

We watched the nice sunset and talked about different trips we are thinking to do and gave each other tips about a lot of activities in Vancouver. Of course we discussed as well where we want to go for the last soccer match on sunday. So for everybody who wants to watch the match, we are definitely going somewhere together, but since most of the pubs don’t do reservations on this big day or want to charge us a $10 entrance fee we are still looking for one where we might get in for free.

We had a great time, enjoying the sun after work and we hope that the weather will stay like this, so we can have a great summer and lots of outside activities in and around Vancouver.

PuB NiGHT Review

Yesterday it was time to meet for a after-whistler-beer and a pre-rockies-beer. Also a great discount on the rockies trip was given away to the winner of the quarters tournament and some other nice prizes were won.

We met at the Bismarck where we were welcomed with free nachos and 3$ beer, what else do you want? Some of us ordered food and once everyone was finished eating we started the quarters tournament with Lesley from Westtrek. Pairs played against each other and the winner went trough to the next round. In the finals Fredrikke played agains Mohammed and after some intense moments Fredrikke won the $50 discount for the Rockies trip. However Mohammed did not go empty handed he won a big bus tickets for two days.

After everyone was calmed down and has some more drink we started our quiz. Charlotte was the winner of the quiz and won a big bus ticket for two days and a very green lucky cup. Claudia and Fredrikke won some great sunglasses and Lisa won a nice INTERNeX shirt.

More pictures can be found here.

See you at our next pub night or at the Giants game on Friday!

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Last night, we had our weekly pub night at Ceilis Irish pub! Everything was awesome, except for one thing…people were being turned away at the door because they needed their passports if they didn’t have a BC ID.  I was not very happy about it, as you can already imagine.

So I’d like to apologize to every one who came out last night and were turned away because they didn’t have their passports with them. I was not aware of this until yesterday.  Places such as Ceili’s and Cambie require everyone who is international, to show their passports as their first piece of ID.

To make matters worse…my phone died earlier that day. So if you tried to reach me, you know why I wasn’t replying back. Although it was a disastrous night, there were some good parts too. Like for example, the cheapest and the most delicious wings ever!! Ann-Christin and I shared, and we each only had to pay a toonie! How awesome is that? And $4 beer and $4 tequila shots? Life cannot get better than that, my friends. 

For next time, I will make sure if there is a policy like this and let you all know way in advance. And don’t be discouraged about last night…next week there is going to be a SPECIAL pub and club night 😉 which you shouldn’t miss out! 

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Have you ever tried playing Jenga at a pub? Well neither have I…that is until last night when we all gathered at Doolin’s Irish pub for our weekly meeting 😉  Do you know how nerve-racking it is playing Jenga?! It was still really fun though!

Probably the best part of the night was when we were playing Battle of the Sexes! It was so much fun, except for the fact that there weren’t enough girls so some of the guys had to join the girls team. Unfortunately in the end, the guys team won. But I want a REMATCH. Where are all the girls when you need them? C’mon! There was a question that was asked, “where is the forbidden city located?” to which I answered ‘Vegas’….but the real answer was ‘Beijing’…oops! And now everyone is after me!

And also throughout the night, people kept guessing the amount of chocolate eggs in the jar. Some people went far as to coming up with math formulas and calculations and all that stuff. But the winner in the end was…*drumroll*…Rie! She guessed 220 and the actual amount was 222 (just two numbers off!). I wish I could have guessed.

You all know how much I love the Morrissey pub, but I actually didn’t mind trying a new place this week. And I got to say, Doolin’s Irish Pub was pretty awesome! It  has a very welcoming atmosphere and the music wasn’t too loud so we could talk. And of course the waitresses were friendly as well. But if you’re going to order food there, do NOT order their cheesy bread.

That’s it for now! If you didn’t make it last night, don’t miss out next week for even more awesome games and prizes! For those of you going to the Rockies next week, you should definitely come out because we will be going over some important information about the trip! 🙂  

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Picture time -smile!

Last night we gathered at the Library Square Public House for another round of drinks! It was really nice catching up again after a crazy fun night last Friday at the Pint. We talked about the upcoming trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains! If you are interested, message us or come by the office! Our discussion during the night included so many topics like birthday traditions from different countries to our boring and quiet lives before INTERNeX pub nights and events!

And after feeling ashamed that I ordered tea and water during the previous pub nights, I decided to redeem myself by ordering one of the contemporary cocktails which were on special for just $6.50. I have to say, it was the most watered down, bitter, and strange tasting cocktail I have ever had. I truly regret ordering this drink. Some of the others ordered different cocktails, but they all seemed to agree that it was horrible. After adding some things to make the drink sweeter, it tasted a lot better than the first sip. Lesson learned: stay true to your self…and stick to what you like.

Just in case you might make the same mistake, here is a photo:

As for the place itself,  I thought it was cozy with the small tea lights on our tables. Also, we were seated at the back of the pub which made it more private. The music was really great, especially The Look by Metronomy! I think it’s my favorite song for this week!

For those of you who missed our pub night, you better have a good excuse 😉 but that’s okay you can make up for it when we visit the Vancouver Aquarium this Saturday. Check our Facebook event for more information!

Happy Thursday!

Cheers,

Flora
