Pub Night Announcement

Soon it’s Wednesday, and of course that means time for another great pub night. This time we’ll meet at the Railway Club at 7pm. Some cool entertainment is coming your way for this pub night. Every evening the Railway Club has some form of entertainment on the programme. This time you’ll be able to experience live performances from a couple of bands. In case you’re not able to make it for 7pm, remember that you’ll be charged 8$ at the entrance if you arrive after 8:30pm. Want to know more about the live performances of the evening?… Take a look here.

All food is served for reasonable prices. So, what does that mean? Well, nothing above 10$. The food served ranges from hot bowls/rice bowls to soups, sandwiches and more. Ooh yes you’ll be looking forward to this evening. Would be great if those of you who went to Whistler could show up and tell a bit about your experiences to those who didn’t go. And of course it would be great with some feedback on the trip.

You’ll find the Railway Club at 579 Dunsmuir Street on the corner at Seymour only 56 metres away from Granville Station.

Looking forward to see you guys.

Winter is coming, take advance now!

Are you planning to be around for the winter? Looking to do some skien or snowboarding this winter? Than make sure you buy your winter passes now! Most Ski resorts have a early bird special, meaning if you buy your winter pass now you’ll save big bucks!

Snow rarely falls in the city, yet living in Vancouver gives you the chance to enjoy some of the best downhill and cross-country ski facilities in North America.

With mountains such as Grouse Mountain, Cypress and Mount Seymour, just outside Vancouver residents and tourists can hardly resist the urge to strap on snowboards, skis or snow shoes throughout the winter months.  Two hours north of Vancouver are the mountains Whistler and Blackcomb. The first mountain you might recognize as the host of the Olympics, Blackcomb is the neighbor mountain and since the opening of the Peak- Peak gondola it is easily accessible for all ski and snowboard fans!

Click on the following links to find out more about the ski mountains and their season passes:

I wish I was still here when the winter starts, so I can ski one of these beautiful mountains! Be sure to get the winterpass soon most Pre-seasons sales close at Sept. 30th!

Vancouver Welcomes CLUB 560

I’ve been in Vancouver for over 8years now so I think I know Vancouver’s nightscene quite well. Vancouver nightclubs tend to be one-trick ponies, as so cleverly quoted by one of my friends. They all seem to have one room/space, one DJ and one theme that runs throughout. So my friends I are looking for something new, something that’ll liven up Vancouver’s scene a little and I think I might have found it…

A friend of mine, on her way home from work, came across “Five Sixty” located at 560 Seymour Street. Previously home to the old A&B Sound Store this place is much MUCH larger then most local nightclubs-it 28,000 sq. ft spread out over 4 FLOORS! This is something that reminds me of the clubs I used to visit back in Europe. This space can allow up to 500 people to walk around freely and choose between THREE DIFFERENT & SEPARATE mini-clubs each with its own DJ. I mean what more could you ask for?! It took over a year and close to $4million to convert this retail building to a nightclub and the end result will not disappoint.

One of the most amazing parts of this spot is the basement, which has been turned into a unisex bathroom with its own bar, DJ and dance floor. So when you are taking your timeout on the loo you can still enjoy yourself and not miss out on any of the action! Haha I love the sound of this place already. If you would rather chill there is a long thin lounge on the main floor just off the main dance room. So really there is something for EVERYONE!

So you can be sure that I will be checking this place out with all my friends…come join us! Maybe next INTERNeX PuB & CLUB NiGHT location?! Let me know what you think, contact us at the office
