Review: PuB NiGHT at Steamworks

Yesterday we went to Steamworks for PuB NiGHT and we had a great night! Thank you all for coming!

Steamworks is a really cool brewpub at Waterfront. They make their own beers and you can definitely see that in the pub. The pub is way bigger then you would think when you’re standing outside and we were located downstairs.

Some of you went to the Whitecaps game before PuB NiGHT, so in the beginning we were just a little group on a very big table. It did give us the chance to catch up and some people signed up for the upcoming Rockies trip. Because Steamworks is a brewpub they have a lot of different beers and everyone was trying something out. Personally I chose a beer cocktail named Oompa Loompa and it was amazing! After the game the rest joined us and we were once again the big group that we are used to.

Thanks for coming and we hope to see you this weekend or next PuB NiGHT!

What to do on the weekend

Thank god it’s Friday! Which means it is almost weekend and weekend is always good, especially with the following things coming up:

Tonight INTERNeX will go to the Richmond Night Market close to Bridgeport Srichmondnightmarket1tation. This is the biggest night market in North America and it has over 500 food choices from all around the world, so you can definitely fill your tummies here! There are also live performances, over two hundred retail stalls and several games, so if you have nothing planned yet for tonight, you are welcome to join us.

Unfortunately we don’t have as great weather as last weekend, so I came up with some ideas for you to do this weekend where you don’t really need to stroll in the rain for or is still okay to do with an umbrella.

The Champions League Final is tomorrow and the Manchester Pub is broadcasting it! The duel starts at 11.45 AM Vancouver time, so if you are a real soccer fan and want to see the match between Juventus and Real Madrid go to the Manchester Pub on 1941 West Broadway. Besides this match, the Vancouver Whitecaps are also playing, so if you want to enjoy a more local match, definitely check this one out!

Besides the Richmond Night Market there are some other markets this weekend as well. The Eastside Flea is happening again this weekend, which is worth visiting. On Sunday there is the StreetFood Vancouver Festival at 88 Pacific Blvd. Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival and Memory Laine Events host the event. It has 22 Vancouver Food Trucks, an artisan market, live music and more entertainment for the entire family. And the good thing about this market is that there is no entrance fee.

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you and I hope to see you tonight in Richmond!

PuB NiGHT Review

“You Fat Bastard!” is what all the Whitecaps supporters yell to disturb the opponent’s goalkeeper.
Yesterday we collaborated together with International House, a language school we work closely with and went to see a CONCACAF game. It was the Vancouver Whitecaps vs Olimpia from Honduras.

First, we met with the language school students. It was quite interesting and it didn’t take long for everyone’s curiosity to get the better of them and mingle.
After growing into this big group we made our way to Doolin’s Irish Pub there we met the manager of International House who was just as excited to see the game as the rest of us. At Doolin’s we drunk a quick pint of beer before we all marched together with many other Whitecaps supporters to BC Place who were beating drums and cheering all the way there.

Finally following our arrival at the stadium and getting our seats in the supporter’s corner the game began. The Whitecaps were dominating the game from the beginning but only in the 42nd minute were they able to score a goal through Kianz Froese! 1-0 for the Whitecaps! And the fans cheered with all their might.

For the second half the Vancouver soccer team decided to play a little more defensive. However this gave Olimpia more chances which made the game even more exciting than the first 45 minutes. There were some pretty close calls but luckily the Whitecaps were able to keep the score and leave the stadium as winners.

In the meantime many of our other INTERNeXers gathered together for the “Alternative Pub Night” organized by Steve. We joined them at Steamworks after the game and brought along some of the students from International House.

It was an awesome night with lots of fun and excitement!
See you next time!

Whitecaps vs Olimpia

Vancouver’s favorite soccer team is having a match on September 16th. And it’s not just any game. It’s a CONCACAF game which can be compared to Europe’s Champions League. Only here it’s a league for North and Central America as well as the Caribbean. That means this match against Olimpia from Honduras is quite a big deal!

On September 16th, instead of a normal Pub Night, we’ll be able to cheer for the Whitecaps together with their most loyal and crazy (in a cool way) fans.

We’ll meet up at Doolin’s Irish Pub at 5:00pm. It’s early for a Wednesday but it’s definitely something you shouldn’t miss if you want to have a real Vancouver experience!
In case you can’t make it at 5:00pm still try to be there before 6:00pm because that’s when we begin marching towards BC Place.

Besides the hardcore fans we’ll be there together with International House, a language school INTERNeX works closely with. They actually came up with this event and helped us get these awesome tickets! Cheers to that!

Tickets are 30$ per person. Just drop in to the INTERNeX office until latest September 11th to pay for an exciting game with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

See you then!
