INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend

Another crazy QuiZ Night is over and we plan the weekend again. After our night out at the Warehouse and much laughter due to our quiz, multiple choice, and grinding half naked waiters (!), we’re now looking forward to a relaxed beginning of the month of Halloween.

For everyone not used to this holiday, we planned a trip to the Stanley Park’s Ghost Train. It is a famous Halloween attraction and originally designed for kids. However, as a nice and fun introduction to the horror month, it’s exactly right to get in the mood for spook.

And then of course, it is the Thanksgiving weekend! On Monday we are having our Thanksgiving dinner at the Irish Heather and are looking forward to a traditional dish of North American turkey dinner. If you haven’t registered yet on Facebook, you might want to do it now, because the deadline is tonight. Well, hope to see you around…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best,

Annika

INTERNeX Canada: Highlights of the Week

Having Monday off for Canadian Thanksgiving holiday has made this week fly by so fast. Another reason was that it was jam packed with so much to do, so let’s take a look!

Thanksgiving Dinner: The week started off with a delicious turkey dinner at The Irish heather with about 20 of you. Most of us have never had turkey so it was interesting to see all your reactions. It was nice to see so many new (and old) faces and the dessert and beer were a bonus. We were stuffed.

Pivo Pub Night: Who doesn’t love burger and beers? It was definitely a great night in getting to know you all and just relax with everyone, even if we only had two days of work. Won`t you join us next week?

Whistler: Even if you aren’t at Whistler with us this weekend, you should still check out what Irene has to say about the beautiful parks and trails Whistler has.  It’s more than just a mountain for skiing and snowboarding. I think I might even try a little bit of bungee jumping tomorrow if I don’t get too scared!

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Halloween is coming up, are you excited? I am desperately looking for ideas for a Halloween costume, but I’m always horrible in coming up with one. Do you have any ideas yet?

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX Canada: How was your long weekend?

I hope you all had a fun LONG weekend and that you are all refreshed to go back to work! The bonus that comes with a long weekend is that this work week will be just as short as last week because there’s only four days till the weekend!  You may notice that I’m always (hopelessly) counting down to the weekend, but  some of you lucky ones will be coming to Whistler with INTERNeX this weekend.

My weekend was extra long because I finally graduated from university on Thursday! It was an amazing day and much more special than I could have imagined. It was really cool to see my classmates soak in the whole experience and take what seems like a billion pictures. What was so awesome was that Marianne and Irene got to come and spend the day with me. I’m so thankful to have them not only as my colleagues but friends that will last a life time.

The next few days consisted of going to my friends’ grads, furniture shopping and more working at my other job for me! Ya, my life is pretty mundane and sometimes I’m a workaholic. Sometimes.

Marianne, on the other hand, went on an impromptu camping trip to Whistler. She showed me the most beautiful photos of a glacier and told war stories about her hike to get there so definitely ask her about her crazy adventures!

On Monday night, about twenty of us got together for a thanksgiving dinner at The Irish Heather. I think it’s awesome that so many new faces showed up and yes, the Danish crowd is ever growing. Our set menu included their signature French beer, Kronenbourg Blanc which was really tasty and a bit fruity.

We were all starving so when our roast turkey came, which included stuffing, Okanagan cherry relish, maple glazed sweet potatos and brussel sprouts, everyone just stuffed it down their mouths. We’re so classy =P My favorite thing was the pumpkin pie for dessert. Having turkey and pumpkin pie was a new experience for most of the candidates, but everyone agreed that it is one worth repeating!

Now, that’s enough blabbering about how my weekend was. How was yours?

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday Pre-Thanksgiving!

Monday is Thanksgiving and of course we are going to celebrate together with a typical thanksgiving dinner! We know how to celebrate it, but…. Do you know the history behind this festivity?

The origin of the first Thanksgiving in Canada goes back to Martin Frobisher, an explorer who celebrated  for surviving after a long and difficult trip from England… years after this celebration continue when new immigrants were arriving to Canada

Thanksgiving in North America in general has its origins in a mixture of European traditions and aborigines. In Europe, festivals were held before and after the harvest cycles to give thanks for a good harvest and to celebrate the hard work along, with the rest of the community .At the same time, Native Americans were also celebrated the end of the harvest, so the actual Thanksgiving is a mixture between aboriginal tradition and the own tradition that the Europeans brought to Canada. But the main objective was basically the same, to say thank you after a good harvest and to finish a hard work.

In Canada is always celebrated on the second Monday of October and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.

So now you know a little bit more, now we are ready to eat our great turkey dinner!

Join us in celebrating a traditional Canadian Thanksgiving at The Irish Heather in Gastown with our INTERNeX family! It´s just $25 (excluding tax and gratuity) and we will be eating Roasted turkey with cherry relish, mashed potatoes, maple glazed yams, stuffing, and brussel sprouts; and pumpkin pie with bourbon cream for dessert!

Don´t miss out!

Remember:

Where? The Irish Heather, 210 Carrall Street Vancouver

When? Monday, October 8th at 7:30

See you there!

Cheers

Irene
