Review: PuB NiGHT at Morrissey Pub

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Morrissey Pub. It was great to see all these new faces! Thank you for coming!

16684701_10202699907014580_714593829_nMorrissey Pub is a rock bar on Granville. Every day they have a different special and on Wednesday they also have Wings Wednesday like most of the places in Vancouver. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a local DJ playing rock, indie, new wave, Brit Pop and hip hop music. Not the typical pub, right?

A lot of the new candidates came to the PuB NiGHT. It was really great to have a chat with you and to hear about your placement. Besides that, Sebastian had his birthday and 16650834_10208739426185098_2025623304_obrought cake for us. The pub even arranged candles and plates for us! We sang Happy Birthday for him and then we all started to eat the great cheesecake. The atmosphere at the PuB NiGHT was great and suddenly people even started to sing. We sang as loud as we can and after that we started to talk about the INTERNeX song. Last year the INTERNeX family had claimed a song. We still have not decided on a song yet. If you have any suggestions, let us know! Afterwards we figured out there was a photobooth in the pub and tried to fit 5 people in there. Even though we managed to get everyone in there, only 2 people were visible on the pictures.

See you on Saturday at the 24 hours of winter!

Time to rock your night away!

A special update on what you can do in the weekend! Are you looking for something to do on Friday? Then this is your chance!

This Friday The Quixotic Neurotics are going to perform at Studio Records. They will blow your mind with their alternative music! Their songs are mainly covers16521763_10154812412111421_670351408_n at the moment, so you may even know some songs as well! The concert is only $10 if you pay it in advance and $12 when you get tickets at the door. It is quite hard to find a concert for such a cheap price. Therefore, if you like this kind of music, you should definitely check it out! The doors open at 7.30 pm, so it is easy to combine with your placement. As this performance will take place in a pub, you are only able to go there if you are 19+.

That is not even all of it, The Quixotic Neurotics are supporting The Ashes together with Cheap Flavor and LoveLation. That means you get to listen to 4 bands for only $12! The Ashes is a French band with the genre Noisy Pop. They have been combining melodies of post punk and rock ever since 2012. Furthermore, the Canadian alternative blues rock band Cheap Flavor will give you the opportunity to get to know a music genre, which you do not hear that often. Lastly, LoveLation is a Canadian rock band which was inspired by the 60s and 70s music. This combined with modern grunge is their music like we know it today.

Together they are going to make sure that your night will be unforgettable!

Smart Saver

It is Sunday, so it is also time for our weekly smart saver. This week we also found another great smart saver for you – how would be a music festival for free?

Make Music Vancouver is a music festival with over 100 musicians for free which is inspired by La Fête de la Musique from France. On June 25 the Water Street is shut down to traffic and is transformed into sidewalk stages and dance floors. You will see bands of any kinds of music, everything from rock and reggae to classical, jazz and punk.

Last year, 25,000 people turned out for the event, so it is supposed to be a really big party. So join the party on June 25, 5 pm – 10 pm at Water Street in Gastown for free! Find more information like the Line-Up and times on their homepage!

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NIGHT Review

Hi guys!

Yesterday, we went to The Railway Club for our weekly pub night! The music was excellent, they usually have amazing concerts. We could enjoy three fantastic rock bands: Double Fuzz, Ornament and Crime and Still Spirit. The pub was very cool. There was a little toy train that passed every few minutes over our heads, very funny! The special beer was The Moose Head. Of course, all the Canadians brands must to have the word “moose”, “maple” or “beaver”.

It was the first pub night for our new PR, Jelle . These nights are an excellent occasion for us (the super PR team) because all of us are new in the city and we are looking forward to meet a lot of people. So, don’t be shy! If you didn’t come, you have to join us the next time.

Most of them were from Germany, so we could talk about our loved Europe, shared impressions about Canada, and learnt some Germans words, ich danke ihnen! And we were talking about the next Saturday trip to Richmond Go-Kart too! If you are thinking about come or not, don’t hesitate! It will be fantastic. We have postponed this trip several times due to weather, but this time will be the good one!

Coming back home Jelle and I saw a couple of raccoon’s in the middle of the road! I had never seen one before, they are so cute… We don’t have pictures because it was very dark. Maybe the next time!

Kisses,

Clara.

PuB PuB PuB NiGHT!!!!

THAT was a PuB NiGHT! Beer, Games, Friends, Fun , laughter and you! It was the last for the summer season, but not the last for the year – there are good things to come in Winter! Thank you all who came to say goodbye and to the new once who just arrived in Vancouver that now know that INTERNeX PuB NiGHT rock!

This crazy night finished with some driving around the city in shopping carts and unfortunately for one a visit to the dentist;). Ruud won the ticket for Whistler offered by West Trek after a long battle with our lovely German candidates Melanie and Mona and finally won a face to face with Nicolas the French competitor. You should come next time and try to get into the Beer Pond fight for a free trip with the awesome guides of West Trek!

Yesterday was full of colors with crazy people like the old man having dance moves the candidates couldn’t keep up with! There were a lot of funny couples on the dance floor, and your roar of laughter could be heard all over the Blarney:)

Oh! And by the way, welcome to our new PR intern Tracy. She was definitely a great little firecracker last night, and had a lot of fun with you guys!

To see all the photos of the PuB NiGHT, go on Flickr or on facebook to have a look at your crazy faces.

I will truly miss you,

– Nathalie
