INTERNeX Canada: Thanksgiving

As already mentioned, October is the month of Canadian Thanksgiving. Right, different than in the U.S., but still a time to be thankful for all our loved ones, for a bit of free time, for all the luxury goods we are able to enjoy and last but not least,: For all the good and maybe unusual food.

This years Thanksgiving is on Monday October 14th, so it will be a long weekend to enjoy the fall weather. Many of you might have the possibility to join you homestay family for this special day. However, a few of you might not be quite as lucky. That is why INTERNeX will offer a Thanksgiving dinner for you!

Downtown Vancouver is The Irish Heather. They have a project called the Long Table Series. And this is what we are going to try out. Either on Sunday the 13th or directly on Monday the 14th of October, we will go there as a group, sit together at a really long table with other people and have a nice dinner. It is a very social spirit, to come together to a meal with strangers and spend a lovely evening socializing. It is the Thanksgiving spirit.

Right now, you still have the possibility to chose, whether you would rather go on Sunday or on Monday. Just message Annika via Facebook and give a vote concerning which day suits you best. According to that, we will make reservations and let you all know. Please think about it, check out the website of the PUB to get an idea, which dinner is more of your taste and get back to me as quick as possible.

PuB NiGhT Announcement

Hello world!

Another week, another PuB Night!

This time we will have a farewell night for our candidates Timo and Matthijs, who made the wish to go to the 2 Parrots on Granville Street. Of course we couldn’t deny that!

The restaurant was named after the owner’s two beloved parrots Mickey & Marco. Located in the popular entertainment district of Vancouver and nestled among clubs & hotels it makes it the perfect place to have dinner before checking out the vibrant nightlife our city has to offer!

Check out their website!

They have good deals on Wednesday and niiiice food!

Next PuB NiGHT June 10!

Thanks to everyone that came out last night to Malone’s Pub and Grill, I hope you had a great time! Haven’t made it out to INTERNeX PuB NiGHT yet? Don’t miss out on the next one happening June 10 at the Blarney Stone! Swing by around 8 p.m. and meet other INTERNeX program participants!

On Thursday night, Dance mob will be spinning the best of Top 40 rock and dance covers! More than just an Irish Pub, the Blarney Stone is Vancouver’s Institution for Irish Food, Entertainment, and Atmosphere.  Voted Best Irish pub in Vancouver again last year, the Blarney Stone offers a unique pub experience by day and rip roaring, feet stomping good times by night.  Conveniently located in the centre of Vancouver’s historic Gastown District, the Blarney Stone is both a local favourite and tourist destination.

This 7,000 square foot venue is pleasantly divided into many different areas and atmospheres.  As a traditional Irish pub, we have seating options from cozy booth snugs and large wing back loungers, to a shared spot at a long table or a seat at any one of our three bars.

The Blarney Stone has a large selection of Draft Beers, Scotches, and Whiskeys (they are Irish after all!), and Vodkas from around the world.  We have a newly renovated kitchen and our menu is a mix of authentic Irish food and dishes with a modern and international flare.

Have a pint with friends after work or watch almost any game on one of our many Plasma TV’s.  Later in the evening, mix it up on our large dance floor!
