PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

“For how many people do you want to make a reservation?” “I think between 10 and 15 people” “Sure!” …And there we were with 20 people! Wauw! We are very happy to see that so many of you showed up. A big group means also big fun! And we definitely had a lot of fun! Thank you all for joining this pub night!

We had a lounge for ourselves. A couple minutes after eight the lounge was already filled with people. We got a shot from the pub, so cheers to that. But after, more people were still coming, so we moved to a bigger table upstairs. Then it was time for the real work: the bingo began! And yes, we got our first prize! Alina got a free shot (which she was unfortunately not allowed to drink). Then it was time for the music bingo. And yes, another prize! This time Hanna won a free pitcher of beer. After singing out loud to the classic sing alongs and a couple dance moves later, we decided that our voice was not loud enough yet. So we went to the karaoke bar to sing through a microphone this time. Because some people still didn’t want to go home yet, the party continued in the Bourbon. After ordering a free burger (haha) the night was over.

The Beaver bar is a nice cozy bar underneath an international hostel. Every night they organise a different activity. For example the bingo, but also trivia or a DJ night. And a new great deal every day. All the ingredients for the perfect pub night! Since everybody loved it, we definitely are coming back here! Thank you for joining us this night and I hope to see you at the Chinese lantern festival this Saturday.

PuB NiGHT Review

BOURBON BINGO!

Last night’s Pub Night at the Lamplighter turned out to be Bourbon Bingo night, cool surprise on our Wednesday night! We all got our sheets and a huge marker and while we were enjoying our Pale Ales and Witbiers the DJ explained the rules. Another surprise was the waiter who had four beer samples left from a Northern Vancouver brewery which we could try. Free is always a good thing, however this beer was no one’s favourite except for Maude’s haha.

Back to bingo; every round a different figure was required in order to win, once one would have that figure that person had to shout out loud ‘BOURBON BINGO’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the first round we only had to get one line in any of the three squares on our sheet to win beers for the whole group. Shame that non of us won, nevertheless the second round made up for that! Our new Swedish friend Rasmus won shots of Bourbon for the whole table by being the first one to have a cross on his sheet! Awesome! As for the next round we needed a full square on our sheet, the prize was a round of beers, a round of shots and a 25 dollar gift card.

Well, after that second round non of us won anymore, but it was good fun anyhow! It is quite nerve wrecking to almost have bingo and see someone else win instead.

Thanks for coming folks! Catch up soon!

Cheers,

Your PR-Team, Amiel & Natasja

Trivia Pub Night Review

Ooohoyeah, I liked the Trivia night at the Moose’s Down Under last night! Did you too?Surprisingly, we did not know a lot of answers, but I don’t think that affected the fun we had!

Thanks for showing up guys! We had a nice big group with two teams.

The quiz existed out of four rounds with each ten questions. These questions varied from history to pop music and from movie titles to book titles. Between every round the teams could play games. The first game was heads and tails. Everyone was asked to stand up, the host flipped two coins and the participants had to predict whether it would be two heads, two tails or heads and tails by placing their hands on their head or back. If one would predict wrong, they were out of the race and the winner won a round of shots or beers for their table! Nice prize I’d say!

In between the second and third round the game to be played made use of big badminton shuttlecocks and a net, one participant from every team had to throw all three shuttlecocks in the net in order to obtain as many points as possible. The team with the most points won a round of beer or shots. None of our teams won this round.

However, team Just Germans, including one Dutchie, won the third game: rock, paper, scissors. We won a round of shots! YAY!

Both INTERNeX teams, Just Germans and Three Nations, ended up with a tie! The winning team could win a $150 cash jackpot, but they choose to raise the jackpot instead and get another chance of winning next week. This means that the jackpot is $200 next week!

After the quiz the bar closed fairly soon and therefore some of us decided to have another drink at the Cambie, which was packed!

I’d say it was another good pub night!

Next week INTERNeX organizes a club night, check the event for more info!

See you laterrrrr!

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review

Last night we had our weekly, my first but definitely not last, PuB NiGHT at the Bismarck. The Bismarck is a local cozy bar near the office, with a touch of industrial vibe.

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetDrinks and food, which looked delicious, were orderd. The ‘newbies‘, were introduced to the 151, a pretty strong burning rum. Apparently is can also be lit on fire, so that is something to try for a next time.

I heard a lot of different activities you guys want to do, so I am going to do my best to plan them. And whenever you have a idea, comment, question or anything else, you can come by at the office, call us or write us on facebook.

As you can see there are no pictures of the PuB NiGHT, so if made any pictures during the PuB NiGHT and do not mind sharing them, just send an mail to pr@internexcanada.com with the photos.

It was great to meet y’all and I’m already looking forward to our next PuB NiGHT

Picture of the week

Today is Wednesday, so everyone was already waiting for the picture of the week of course! Well, here it is! This week we have a picture from Franziska, one of the lovely PR-team members! She got a week off from work, because her boyfriend was visiting her here in Vancouver. Together with him she went to the Rockies!

“Last week I went on a roadtrip to the Rocky Mountains for 4 days. One of my wishes was to see bears of course! The drive via Salmon Arm to Lake Louise and back to Vancouver via Kelowna was awesome! The weather was great, the mountains gigantic, the woods lushly green and the caribous, mountain goats and American Eagles just stunning! Canada is soooo beautiful! On my way back from Lake Louise to Kelowna the time had come…. On a frozen riverbed, not far from the road I was driving, I saw two bears who just finished breakfast ;-). I assume it was an adult with her cub. The scene reminded me so much of the movie “The Bear” from 1988 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ-kOix5FAI). I was so excited that I jumped out of the car, headed towards the riverfront and took some beautiful shots of the two. Phenomenal experience!! :-D”

If you think your picture is worth being the picture of the week, just send an email to pr@internexcanada.com.

INTERNeX PuB NiGHT @ The Cambie!

Oh yes, it’s time for another INTERNeX PuB NiGHT! This time, we’re heading over the Cambie Bar in Gastown!

The Cambie bar is part of the Cambie Hostel, which all began in 1887, when a new saloon on the bustling Cordova Street quickly established itself as a happening social centre for locals and travelers alike. When the Prohibition of the 1920’s was in full swing, bootleggers floated their forbidden wares through False Creek and delivered them straight to the Cambie storeroom through an extensive network of underground tunnels. The General Store & Bakery adjacent to the pub saw its share of excitement too, as a boxing ring where five cents would buy you hours of ringside entertainment. Although the hotel got a major facelift in 1997 to camouflage a century of drunken debauchery, the spirit of excitement and fun is still very much alive.
So join INTERNeX at the Cambie on Wednesday, July 7 at 300 Cambie Street in Gastown! 8 p.m. is our usual meeting time, so come around then! This time we’ll have a little trivia quiz so we can dish out some prizes. Make sure to be on time or miss out on some good stuff!
See you next week!
