Fore last night was Trivia Night at Moose’s Down Under. We had a lot of fun and we really tried our best to answer at least some questions but most of them were so specific that our general knowledge wasn’t enough. 22185858802_8ba211742b_bLooks like we all need to study up some more! I actually wouldn’t have expected that it’s so hard to answer the questions right although I was warned about that before. Nevertheless it was lots of fun guessing the different kind of issues. To be honest we were guessing almost every time or actually we would have known more if they had accepted the German answers as well. Even at the mini games in between the four quiz rounds we were so bad though actually the only thing you need to win these games is a bit of luck. Since our group was knocked out after every first round of mini games we obviously hadn’t that much luck. We had to split up into two teams because we were too many people and you are only allowed to play in a group of 6 participants to win the jackpot. For us it didn’t matter … we were too bad anyways.

On Saturday we will meet up to prepare for Halloween. There are only two weeks left therefore it is time to find a suitable outfit for this occasion. Did you already think about a Halloween costume? I informed myself about the Halloween trends 2015. As I read, the most popular costume trends include superheroes (e.g. Batman, Superman), science fiction stars (e.g. Star Wars characters), the Minions and throwback Thursday outfits (e.g. back to 90s outfits).As far as I’m concerned I prefer a “traditional” costume such as zombies or other spooky creatures. But we will see what the stores have plenty to offer.

Let’s get in a terrifying Halloween mood by shopping some costumes on Saturday.

Looking forward to Halloween!

PuB NiGHT Review – Trivia Night @ Moose’s Down Under

Our team Die Gummibärenbande tried its best to answer last night’s trivia questions but some of them were really difficult. Looks like we all need to study up some more!

It was still lots of fun guessing at random questions and playing the mini games in between.
After the trivia event ended some of us got into talking about television shows we used to watch when we were children. We had shows like the Teletubbies, Power Rangers and also series specific to our own countries come up. That was quite a nostalgic ride back into our childhoods!

Soon after Moose’s Down Under was beginning to close up so we decided to move on to the next place, especially because since it was Laura’s, one of our INTERNeXers, last night in Canada. We went to her favorite pub the Blarney Stone! Here we had a couple more farewell drinks while everyone wrote goodbye notes on a flag to remember us by.
Eventually, we had to reluctantly call it a night and parted ways with promises of a reunion someday.
You always meet twice, right?

PuB NiGHT Review

PuB NiGHT @ Moose’s Down Under

We throw our hands up in defeat!
For the second time, we braved the stage of trivia at Moose’s Down Under for the weekly Pub Night with 2 of our teams. One team name was Schwarzwälderkirsch Torte (just because we wanted toIMG_1729 mess with the game master when she called out our team) and the other was named Trivia-Noobs. No name could have been truer for this night.

By the way, Schwarzwälderkirsch Torte which is German and means Blackforest Cake , actually put up a decent fight. While…well, let’s leave it at that. 😀

Even so, we tried our best and still managed to scrap together some points at least!

After the trivia games ended we stuck around for a little but eventually moved on to Cambie’s for more fun and drinks.
Again we had a great time meeting new people and getting to know them better.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.



PuB NiGHT Announcement

Pub Night @ Moose’s Down Under

Wednesday again!? The past week went by way too fast!

After our glorious return from the camping trip back to civilization, we want to mix and mingle once again.
And what better occasion is there other than our weekly PuB NiGHT?

Since it was so awesome last time, let’s give the Trivia Night at Moose’s Down Under another try. When we went in May we had tons of fun although our knowledge ended up being somewhat lacking. Even so, this won’t stop us!

Trivia Night begins at 7 pm and consists of 4 rounds of 10 questions with mini games in between and if you win your team will be able to win the weekly cash jackpot and drinks for the in-between games.
Every team consists of 6 people which is why you should definitely come to increase our chances of winning!

Aside from the weekly Trivia Night the food is great, drinks are reasonably priced and most importantly the atmosphere is fun!

We’ll meet a little earlier this time to not be late for the games.
6:30 pm is the time for Wednesday, July 15 at Moose’s Down Under located at 830 West Pender Street. (Look to the ground when you arrive. It’s on the basement floor!)

See you there!
