INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

This weekend we went to Richmond to ride on Go-Karts! We arrived in Richmond Station early but we had to walk a long the field to find the Go-Kart place. After arrived, suddenly started to rain so we were a little worried about the fact that maybe we were not going to can ride! But we put on our helmets and we waited patiently.

But finally our turn come, and was pretty funny! It’s very easy to ride a Kart and we gave a few laps trying to pass each other. But I would like that the cars are faster!  We finished the race tired but happy. And stained with mud…

And coming back home we had a very funny anecdote: the bus driver was charming and he suddenly he switched on the bus speakers and he said: “Let’s see if the European people is smarted than Canadian people. If you don’t pass the test you can’t get off the bus!” And he started to ask us questions like in a quiz show! That was very funny!

In Vancouver, some of us went to a pub to drink something, and then started to rain cats and dogs… the end of the good weather! And you? How was your weekend?

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!
