INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

PuB NiGHT at the Morrissey!!

As soon as you step inside the Morrissey pub, you’ll be welcomed by a cozy atmosphere -dimmed chandelier, candles on the wooden table, vintage frames on the wall, and a warm fireplace. That’s where we were yesterday for our Wednesday pub night!

But not just any pub night..because it was full of awesome fun games, and prizes! We started out by playing a round of card game called One Card (similar to UNO). It was fun but as more people arrived, we decided to team up and play Cards Against Humanity. All the answers were so hilarious…and of course terribly inappropriate 😉 And the winning teams won free admission to the Vancouver Maritime Museum! 

I really enjoy being at the Morrissey. The music is never too loud and waitresses are pretty friendly…and their cocktails aren’t bad either!Perhaps the only downside is that it’s a bit on the pricier end.

Valentine and Ann-Christin

And we also had Lesley from Westtrek, who showed us a game called quarters tournament (this is where you compete to get two quarters into a cup). The two winners won a $25 discount coupon towards the Rockies trip!

Cute girls, handsome European men, drinks, games, prizes…what more can you want 😉 join us next week if you missed out last night!

And if you just can’t wait till next week, come with us this Sunday March 17th as we watch the St. Patrick’s Day parade, drink green beer, and party it up at the Venue! For more details, click here.

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Explorer: The Rocky Mountains -Part 1

Since we are going to the Rocky Mountains at the end of March, I thought it’d be a great idea to learn a bit about the places we will visit during our trip! The first day we will be arriving at Valemount, BC!

Valemount is a town surrounded by the beautiful BC mountain ranges, Cariboo, the Monashee, and of course the Rockies. Today, this place welcomes travelers all year round with fun and exciting activities such snowmobiling, heli-skiing in winter, hiking, camping, and trail riding, and whitewater rafting in summer! You can also just simply enjoy the quiet serenity as you breathe in the fresh mountain air!

Mount Robson

But in the early 1900’s, Valemount played an important role in railway construction between the Great Northern and Grand Trunk Railroads, which later became the CN Railway System.  In 1928, Valemount became a railway station, and you’ll be able to see the historic remains and artifacts on display at the Valemount and Area Museum!

It is also the closest town to Mount Robson, the TALLEST of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! As for shopping, they have really unique and locally made gifts that you can’t find anywhere else!

That’s all for now, don’t want to spoil it for you before the trip 😉 But why don’t you see this amazing place for yourself? Remember to register at our office and click here to join our Facebook event page! 

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGhTs of the Week!

Rise and shine, everybody! Here are some of the highlights from this week:

friends!!

If you weren’t at the pub night this week, you missed out on some awesome discussion! On Wednesdays, The Library Square has special $5 wings as well as drinks for fairly cheap! Something you definitely didn’t miss out on was the cocktail drinks part. All I can say is that it was just terrible. But as I was about to leave, Erik ordered the wings. And the smell! Almost ruined my healthy eating plan 😛 If you want to know more about what happened at the pub night, you can read about it here!

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

“Last Friday night, yeah we danced on table tops”  -well almost. If you didn’t get the the reference, that was part of the lyrics from Katy Perry’s song Last Friday Night! This is so fitting for us because we really partied it up at the Pint for a pub and club night last Friday! And we had an amazing time just catching up with old and new faces, dancing, singing, and having a couple of drinks! It was also a very special night because in a way it was like a celebration and farewell party for Maike, Jildau, and Tam Ara. And because we had such a big group our tables were scattered all around the pub! I’d say it was one of the biggest groups we’ve had so far so let’s keep it up! 😉

The night began somewhat slow but just an hour later, the pub got so crowded and every one was cheering and just having a great time! We also had Samuel drop by from Westtrek tours to talk about our Rockies Trip! And then later in the night, we did a draw for a one day trip ticket from Westtrek to either Seattle or Whistler…and if you missed the announcing, the winner was Queenie!!

Also, the Vancouver Canucks won the hockey game against Predators (1-0) which was awesome. But I got to say, the game wasn’t that exciting -oops did I just say that? And then to end the night, we all went to the dance floor to show off our moves! Although I’m not much of a dancer, it was just so much fun I almost couldn’t pull myself away!

As for the rest of the weekend, it was very relaxing for me! Last night, I watched a movie called “Life of Pi” and the visuals in the movie was just so impressive! I highly recommend you watch it. And of course, if you’re looking to be more involved in fun events like these and more, come with us to the Rockies trip at the end of March! 😀

Cheers,

Flora
