Review: PuB NiGHT at Mahony & Sons Burred Landing

Yesterdays PuB NiGHT was at Mahony & Sons at Canada Place and it was great! Unfortunately it was the last PuB NiGHT for some of us, but we made the best of it. Thank you guys for joining!

There are three Mahony & Sons pubs in Vancouver, all run by the same family. AtPubnight4 Canada Place they also have an outdoor terrace with amazing views over North Vancouver, but it was still a bit too chilly for that now. We always enjoy these Irish pubs, especially because they have wine Wednesdays with 50% off every bottle of wine.

It is kind of a weird time since quite some people are leaving by now, but we also have new people coming in! It was great to see three new people joined and blended in so well.

Last time we had a PuB NiGHT here it was all about the Rockies trip and I was glad to hear this topic was going over the table again since we are going again in August! It is really nice to see so many of you want to join us on this amazing trip and are already making travel plans with your buddies.

I hope you had as much fun as I did! Enjoy the sunny days that are coming now and we hope to see you at the International Jazz Festival!

“See you somewhere in the world again” – Janel

Friday was my last day as an INTERNeX PR-Coordinator. My time here in Vancouver has been amazing. During my time here a lot of candidates left and a lot of new ones came. It is always hard to say bye to the ones that were leaving, but it was always nice to meet all the new candidates. And now it is time for me to leave beautiful Vancouver and Canada.

When I arrived in Vancouver to start my placement I was excited and nervous at the same time. But as soon as I got to know the INTERNeX team and family I was not nervous anymore. The first candidate I met here in Vancouver was Andreas, he was the one helping me organizing my very first PuB NiGHT. It was a great PuB NiGHT and it was amazing to meet the first INTERNeX family.

After 2 months in Vancouver the new girls of the PR-team started to arrive. It was so great to meet them and it was a pleasure to work with every single one of them. Our team dynamic was amazing and everyone knew what to do. I had lots of amazing moments with you girls, thank you for being part of the team and being my friend!

I had the opportunity to meet lots of great INTERNeX candidates during the 7 months here and had so many amazing parties with all of you. My experience here in Canada wouldn’t have been the same without all of you!

I also had the opportunity to see so many great places. I went to the Rockies, Kelowna, Vancouver Island, Whistler, Squamish, San Francisco, Seattle and my family in Osseo. Tomorrow I will start a trip with one of my best friends here, Sam, we will cross New York and Quebec City of our bucket list.

I’m really thankful for the opportunity of doing my placement here in Vancouver. Tim, Simon and the rest of the INTERNeX team taught me so much and I will never forget our great times in and outside of the office.19030477_10209743262960390_3042787021812705458_n.jpg

It is sad to leave Vancouver, but as I always say: “See you guys somewhere in the world again!”

Review: PuB NiGHT at The Lamplighter

Last night’s PuB NiGHT was at the Lamplighter and it was a great night, thank you all for coming!

IMG_4225.JPG

The Lamplighter is a really nice pub in Gastown and they play Bourbon Bingo there every Wednesday. You can get the bingo sheets for free and every round you need a different pattern to win. Everyone on our table was playing and we were getting really excited about it. In the first Merle won 3 ciders and in the very last game we were even luckier, as three of us won! Marie and Iris won 19(!) shots of Bourbon for the whole table and Zack won some beer.

IMG_4228Since it was Janels last PuB NiGHT her flag was going around the table for everybody to write on and some people were passing along their notebooks to people who are leaving us soon too. After everybody had written something we decided to end PuB NiGHT in the best way possible by going to The Met. Everybody joined in to sing our favourite karaoke song “We’re all in this together”.

I think it’s safe to say Janel’s last PuB NiGHT was a good one, thanks to you guys!

Review: PuB NiGHT at 131 Water

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at 131 Water and it was great seeing all of you there! Thank you for coming!

131 Water is a kitchen and bar in Gastown. They have a big variety of games from Jenga to Cards Against Humanity, battleship, trivia and many more. During happy hour you can get the house wine and the Lucky Lager with a discounted price. Their happy hour is from 9 PM till close, which is the perfect time if you want to go out for a few drinks and perfect for our PuB NiGHT.

19073767_1781441648537945_692179830_nWe started off with playing Jenga. Some of us were very good and could get the stones out of our tower without any hesitation. I was not one of those people and always took a long time till I finished my turn. After playing many rounds of Jenga, some people started making solid houses. While they were playing with the stones, the others were telling stories about all of their coming adventures and trips and for some it was time to play Cards Against Humanity to test their humour.

It was a great night again! Hope to see you on Granville Island!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Malone’s

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was great again! We were with such a big group, thank you all so much for coming!

Malone’s is a combination of a social lounge and a taphouse, where you can eat, drink and play pool. On Wednesdays you get a discount on wine and whiskeys. The food is also really good!

18813338_10155348718102103_844142440062610732_n.jpgWe first had two tables, but after a while so many showed that we also took the other table next to us. It was really great to talk with you guys about the camping trip and for some their USA trip. It is always nice to hear so many great stories about your time here in Vancouver and Canada. As it was one of my last PuB NiGHTs I got kind of sad that I have to say ‘see you later’ to all of you so soon, I love our PuB NiGHTs and events together!

I hope to see all of you again tomorrow at the Richmond Night Market!

Smart Saver Vancouver

If you love books as much as I do, then you also know that books can be very expensive. It might be worth checking out one of these stores to find a few cheap books.

Macleod’s bookstore is a bookstore at West Pender street which sells a big variety of books. Some of them are really expensive while other books are only $1. The bookstore has lots of books so if you are on a search for a really cheap book, then you should schedule some hours to hunt for the right book.

18836307_10209107877715062_1345240024_oIf you would rather spend less time in finding a cheap book then go to Spartacus books or Paper Hound bookshop. Paper Hound has a shell outside their store with only cheap books and Spartacus books has a $2 shelf. While you are at Spartacus books you might as well make use of the free WiFi and the board games.

When your books do not fit in your suitcase anymore or when it is time to get rid of some old books and freshen your bookshelf with new books, then you can go to Tanglewood books. At this bookstore you can trade or sell your books between 10 AM and 4 PM. So in this way your books can get a nice new home while you can buy new books without worrying about the weight and space in your suitcase.

I hope this will help you save some money!!!

Review: PuB NiGHT at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Mahony and Sons at Olympic Village. It was great to see you all there. Thank you for joining us!

Mahony and Sons is a pub with three locations: Canada Place, UBC and Olympic village. They use a lot of wood in the pubs itself, which gives you an Irish feeling. However, at both Canada Place and Olympic village you can choose to sit outside too. Both locations have amazing views from their patio and are therefore definitely worth checking out. On Wednesdays wines are on special, which means that all bottles are discounted by 50%, so it is a perfect location for the wine fans among us.

18716442_10209597815964306_1927399038_nWe already went to Mahony and Sons at Canada Place before, so decided to go to Olympic village this time where we got a nice spot outside at the terrace. A lot of people were having their own bottles of wine, as we had to make good use of the wine special. As it was already the last PuB NiGHT for some of us, everybody took their books and soon a lot of people were writing. While everyone was writing, I had time to catch up with everyone about the long weekend and it was great hearing all these stories. Once it got dark, we all took our chance to make pictures of the great view of downtown.

I hope you all had a great time, because I certainly did! See you all at Jericho beach or on next week’s PuB NiGHT!
