PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamplighter

“Only one more to go! Just one!” Last night, it was time to go back to one of our beloved pubs, The Lamplighter, to win some free drinks by yelling “bourbon bingo!” Although, spoiler alert, we didn’t win any. We played five rounds of Bingo, had 15+ participants, but faith was not on our side this time. Oh well… we had fun anyway!

After playing Bingo, we continued our conversations about work, life in our home countries, the surprisingly good weather and of course, the upcoming INTERNeX activities we have planned for you all. Many of you showed up at the pub, which made sure the tables we reserved were never empty. This made sure we always had something to talk and laugh about. 26857502527_58a05dec8e_n

At 11:30pm, it was time to say goodbye to the Lamplighter and say hi to the Met, because cheap beer is always a good idea. Some of you decided to bless us with your beautiful voices by grabbing the mic and doing karaoke. At 1:30 in the morning, we decided to call it a night.

I had a great time last night and I hope you did too! I look forward to seeing you all at the the Dutchie for a Day event this Saturday!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

Oops we did it again… PuB NiGHT at 131 Water! I’ve heard great stories about this pub from all of you, which is why going back there once again seemed like a good idea. I think we can all agree that it was! The coziness, shelves filled with games and Happy Hour assured that it would be a great night.

40787832372_cbb1471c13_nSince it was Roslyn’s last PuB NiGHT, we started the evening with a game she loves: What Do You Meme? This game is reminding us of all the hundreds of memes that have been brought into the universe and that can serve as a quick reply to texts, rather than using words. Simple, but effective. Others played the non-meme version of the game ‘Cards Against Humanity’.

When everyone finished their beers, cocktails and Happy Hour snacks, it was time to show off our singing skills at the Met. We sang along to, of course, 500 Miles and, to showcase how international we are, some even sang a Swedish song.

All in all it was a great night with good people, good food and good music.

I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

See you all at the UBC Party on Saturday!

PuB NiGHT Review: TAPshack

Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid. I felt like a famous rock star yesterday. I will tell you why later on in this pub night story. Let me start from the beginning…

20180124_221709

Before PuB NiGHT started, we ate some chicken wings at the Pint. During happy hour everyone gets free chicken wings when ordering a beer. When our stomach was filled, it was time to go to Tapshack. Tapshack is a really nice, cozy pub with a beautiful view of the mountains in North Vancouver. Our table was waiting for us outside on the heated patio in front of the pub. We sat down and tried some of the many different beers TAPshack has to offer. Or one of those really nice grapefruit drinks.

After some drinks, laughs and talks it was time to head to the Met to do our performances. We did of course our classics, such as summer nights and lemon tree. And then you hear those awful words: “last song of the night, guys”. It was time to leave, so we went outside of the pub. While we were waiting there, a chauffeur from the limousine came to us with an offer we couldn’t resist. A drive through the drive-through of MacDonalds. So we all went in the limo and partied further. Unfortunately, the MacDrive was closed, so he dropped us all off at our houses.

I had a lot of fun and I hope you did as well. Tomorrow we will drive (with a bus, not a limo this time) to Mt. Seymour to practice our ski skills. See you there!

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: The Relish Pub

Thank you everybody for joining us last night at The Relish Pub for our first PuB NiGHT of the year. It was so good to see that everybody survived the holidays and there were even some new faces!

At the Relish Pub we had some drinks and enjoyed some nice food. Some people enjoyed the daily drink specials like Stanley Park Amber beer and the whiskey deals. After we had some drinks and food we decided to take the bus to The Met to of course close our night with some karaoke.

26610713_1838158142892323_212067677_oSongs like “Hotel California”, “Angels” and “Summer nights” were sang. After some songs and more drinks we decided to call it a night.

Again thanks for joining and we hope to see you all on Saturday for the Lord of The Rings Trilogy event!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Black Frog

Thank you all for joining us on Wednesday for our PuB NiGHT at The Black Frog!

We had a lot of fun and we all hope you did too! We started our night after work when we went to The Pint to enjoy the Wing Wednesday deal. After we filled our stomachs with some chicken wings and a beer it was time for us to go to The Black Frog.

When we arrived they were broadcasting the Oilers game since The Black Frog is a pub, which supports the Oilers from Edmonton. After the game was finished they played some music and we enjoyed some cocktails and beers.

After a while we all decided to go to The Met of course to sing some karaoke songs and ended our night there.

We hope to see all of you this Saturday for the Christmas Karaoke Trolley!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Lamplighter

Thank you all for joining us last PuB NiGHT at the Lamplighter!

Our night started off at The Warehouse where we had some dinner first and some drinks of course. After we were done with our amazing dinner and drinks we went to the Lamplighter for some Bourbon Bingo.

foto van INTERNeX international exchange.The INTERNeX family was really lucky since 3 people of our group won something out of 5 rounds of Bingo. When we finished our free drinks we went to the Met for some karaoke as usual.

We sang songs like Bad Day, The Banana Song and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

We had a really fun night and I hope you did as well!

We are looking forward to see you Saturday for the Santa Claus Parade and The Christmas Market.
