Review: PuB NiGHT at Blarney Stone

Yesterday’s PuB NiGHT was at Blarney Stone in Downtown. It was really great seeing all of you there! Thank you all for coming and making this night great again.

Blarney Stone is the only original Irish Pub left in Vancouver. The pub has a lot of special beers, which can make you feel welcome in the city in no time. There is live music in the pub on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Most of the live music is performed by cover bands. Therefore, it is definitely worth checking it out in the weekend. If you would like to celebrate St. Patricks day, then this is the place to be! The pub has various activities for the entire week like Irish Trivia, Bushmills Dinner and the Jameson Barrelman’s Feast. However, they also organise normal trivia nights on Wednesdays.

16443644_1626303047385140_725039406_nLast night we were with a really big group, as we welcomed Dutch students from a university in Rotterdam to our PuB NiGHT. It was really nice to see so many people present at our PuB NiGHT. As it was Trivia Wednesday and we did not have anything to lose anyway, some of us decided to join the quiz as well. It was too bad that we could not hear everything of the quiz, as we were sitting upstairs and it was therefore very hard to answer all the questions. Others just sat on the couches and talked with each other. The two groups even mixed up a little bit and after a while both groups, the INTERNeX family and the Dutch students, went to other pubs to continue the party. The atmosphere among the group was really good and I was happy to be able to experience this PuB NiGHT.

I hope you all had a great time as well and hope we can continue the party at the Superbowl party!

PuB NiGHT Review

Laser Tag: SO MUCH FUN!!

Yesterday we headed down to Richmond to play a couple of games in the largest Laser Tag arena of North America: Planet Lazer.

They offered a nice weekly special, which was two games for the price of one.

The general rules, that applied to all games we played, were simple: Every player starts with a certain amount of points and once you shoot someone you obtain more points, but when you get shot yourself, you lose points. Once you get shot, your ‘shield’ goes up for three seconds, which makes you unable of shooting someone or get shot yourself. Every game lasts 20 minutes.

The first game we played was ‘Free for All’. Everyone played against everyone. The one player to finish with the highest amount of points won.

We entered the enormous arena and after a few moments the game started. The people playing were only our INTERNeX people and another family. Not so many people in the arena, which made it hard to find people quickly. It was not allowed to run, but it sure was more fun, and more exhausting!! Everyone was shooting each other. We were hiding behind objects and walls, walking through small hallways and running upstairs to the other two levels. The whole arena was super dark, but lit up with UV lighted objects. The music was pumping. Adrenaline rush for sure, and everyone was super keen to win! Our winner this round was Chris and Laura followed closely after.

For our second game we were split up into two teams: the Red Team and the Green Team. Easy: shoot people on the other team. Also, during this round we were given strengths: invincibility, bonus points and rapid fire. These strengths could be given to you at any moment. After 20 minutes, the Red Team won! It was a close call though.

After the second game, some die hards who were not exhausted enough and who fancied another game, played another round! Thereafter we got on the bus. We still had a long way back home and some of us grabbed a beer in a nice pub in Gastown.

Thanks for all of you who showed up and hopefully we will all see you for our trip to Victoria on Sunday!

PuB NiGHT Review

So many people, so many beers.. It was a good one.

Thanks to everyone who showed up at yesterday’s pub night at Malone’s.


Shortly after we arrived West Trek showed the movies from the tours from the past weekend. Man, that looked tight! So much fun. Guessing that everyone is super excited now for our Rockies trip starting August 28?! Did you see all those lakes? Cannot wait to make one of them my favourite 😉

 

So, why not come to the office to secure your spot for this fantastic event?

Anyhow, after showing all the movies the DJ turned up the music and quickly people moved to the dance floor, where the girls AND boys moved their hips and danced! We already knew that Amiel is a talented man, and now we even know that he can rap too! He knew the lyrics to Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ too well!

 

After plenty of beers and some sick dance moves the music stopped and the lights were switched on. However, that certainly did not end our night! A last bunch of people tried to find happiness in the Cambie, so that’s where we went. We drank some more, talked some more and laughed some more and then, finally, it was time to head home (at like 1.45 am :D).

 

How is everyone feeling today? Has the hangover left its trace on you? For sure Amiel and me have been better before xD!

Get enough rest before the weekend starts because this Saturday’s Brewery Crawl is meant to be a good one! In the meantime your favourite PR coordinators are planning some more events for you that will happen this August.

Hang in there and catch up soon!

Your PR team,

Amiel & Natasja
