PuB NiGHT Review: Beaver Bar

Three tables should be enough. Ok, let’s take a fourth one. Still not enough. At the end of the night, the INTERNeX gang needed seven tables in total to fit everyone who stepped by at our PuB NiGHT. A new record of this year, pretty cool!

28002828218_49da32e5ee_nThe night started off with some drinks. Our waitress just kept running with pitchers of beers and cocktails for all new people arriving. Soon everybody made themselves feel at home and waited more or less patiently (Germans like to follow the official time schedule 😉 ) for the start of the activity of the night: Bingo! Meanwhile, the well-known Bingo host recognized our group and we got our papers and daubers. One round of normal bingo and we already had a winner in our group! Congrats, Anna!

Special at the Beaver Bar is the famous music bingo. A song is played and you have to mark the singer and song title on your paper. Quite tough sometimes, but since team work is dream work, we managed. Also here we were lucky: Toni was the second winner of our group! Two rounds of music bingo later, it was time to head home. I really enjoyed this busy night and I hope you did too.

See you on Saturday early in the morning for our great trip to Squamish. In the meantime, go out and enjoy the sun!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Bottleneck

‘How many Oscars won the film The Shape of Water?’ No clue? Neither did we. With this and more difficult questions, we had to deal yesterday night during our pub night at The Bottleneck. So today, we are a bit smarter than yesterday.

The Bottleneck is a small bar in the middle of the entertainment street Granville. It is quite hidden, so you have to watch out to find the entrance. Suddenly, the pub was quickly filled with motivated players for the ‘Get Smarty Trivia’, which is hosted every Wednesday at the Bottleneck. Even though we tried to figure out the answers in teamwork, it was really hard! Many of them were American focused, but at least we could proudly name the neighbour countries of Luxembourg. All in all, the trivia was a fun mix of film, music, history and cultural questions.

After all the questions were asked, we handed our creative answers to our neighbours and we got to know the solutions. And we won a prize! For being the second last, but a prize is a prize, so we were happy about it. Until we tried our free winner drinks … We all had never seen a drink like this before. A Canadian speciality called ‘Bloody Caesar’ includes vodka, clamato juice, Worcestershire and Tabasco. And because this combination is not weird enough, you get pickled asparagus, celery, chirozo, prawn and beet on top! We had quite a hard time to finish those drinks. Respect, Canadians!

Oh and by the way, The Shape of Water won 4 Oscars 😉

See you on Sunday for a relaxed stroll on Granville Island!

PuB NiGHT Review: The Beaver Bar

BINGOOOOO! That is what we heard several times at The Beaver Bar yesterday night. What a great time we spent with you!

Yesterday’s pub was not that easy to find. The Beaver is not only a bar, but also a hostel full of international travellers. A huge table was already waiting for us on the gallery where we had a good view on the tables and the bar underneath us. We used the whole space on the gallery, because so many of you showed up! It was great to see old and new faces on our table. When all chairs were taken and everyone got their discounted drinks, it was time for a fun game: Bingo.

The first round was played as usual, crossing numbers off your paper as you hear them. After repeating numbers as 17 and 70 hundred times, we eventually got a winner in our round. Rebecka was the lucky one who shouted bingo as the first one! The night went on with a more challenging round: music bingo. A song was played and we had to cross the respective name on the paper. We took the chance during these rounds to prepare ourselves for the upcoming karaoke. Classic songs were loudly performed while sitting at the tables. Fun! And again, an INTERNeX winner: Pascal could pick up his price at the bar. Our voices were already warmed-up, so there was just one option where to go next: The Met, of course. Solos and duets were performed and even the entire INTERNeX crew gathered behind the microphones. It was only time to go home, when the lights switched on again. I had a great night and I hope you enjoyed it, too!

See you tomorrow in Kelowna or next Wednesday at The Lamplighter!

So join me and let your taste buds explore the world of Japanese cuisine! Not everything is fishy 😉

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Have you ever tried playing Jenga at a pub? Well neither have I…that is until last night when we all gathered at Doolin’s Irish pub for our weekly meeting 😉  Do you know how nerve-racking it is playing Jenga?! It was still really fun though!

Probably the best part of the night was when we were playing Battle of the Sexes! It was so much fun, except for the fact that there weren’t enough girls so some of the guys had to join the girls team. Unfortunately in the end, the guys team won. But I want a REMATCH. Where are all the girls when you need them? C’mon! There was a question that was asked, “where is the forbidden city located?” to which I answered ‘Vegas’….but the real answer was ‘Beijing’…oops! And now everyone is after me!

And also throughout the night, people kept guessing the amount of chocolate eggs in the jar. Some people went far as to coming up with math formulas and calculations and all that stuff. But the winner in the end was…*drumroll*…Rie! She guessed 220 and the actual amount was 222 (just two numbers off!). I wish I could have guessed.

You all know how much I love the Morrissey pub, but I actually didn’t mind trying a new place this week. And I got to say, Doolin’s Irish Pub was pretty awesome! It  has a very welcoming atmosphere and the music wasn’t too loud so we could talk. And of course the waitresses were friendly as well. But if you’re going to order food there, do NOT order their cheesy bread.

That’s it for now! If you didn’t make it last night, don’t miss out next week for even more awesome games and prizes! For those of you going to the Rockies next week, you should definitely come out because we will be going over some important information about the trip! 🙂  

Cheers,

Flora
