Review: Soccer World Cup – Germany vs. Ghana

Last Saturday we met to watch the Soccer World Cup match Germany against Ghana, the second match of both teams in this world cup. So we all were at 11 am at The Pint, ordered some food and drinks to be ready for an exciting soccer match. While we waited for the kickoff we discussed about the world cup and about our bets for the match, everything was about soccer, which was really fun.

After the kickoff all of us followed the game very curious. It was a very nice atmosphere in The Pint. A lot of Germany-supporters and some support-chants during the game. Even when the match wasn’t that good from Germany. In the end it was 2-2, maybe some of was were a bit disappointed, but now it is up to the third match. We will let you know where we will meet us for this match in the next days!

 

After the match most of us decided to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach or with a bike ride around the Stanley Park. After we rented our bikes we followed the way into the Stanley Park to enjoy the sun and the amazing view when we biked along the Seawall. It is really fun and enjoyable, if you didn’t tried it before, you really should do it while you stay in Vancouver!

 

We hope you enjoyed your weekend and be ready for the upcoming week. Please remember that there won’t be a PuB NiGHT on Wednesday because of the PuB & Club NiGHT on Friday!

Pub Night Review

Last night it was again time for our favorite night of the week; it was PuB NiGHT at “The Black Frog”.  It is a small, cozy pub in the heart of Gastown, right next to the steam clock.

We met at 7pm in Gastown but some of us joined later because they watched the woman soccer game Canada against Germany, which was in the BC Place in Vancouver last evening.

Of course some of us tried the amazing burgers, you really have to try them when you are going to The Black Frog next time. We also ordered some drinks and started chatting. It was really fun, we talked about our last trips, plans for the next weekend and of course about the soccer world cup in brazil. This Saturday we will meet us at 11am in The Pint to watch the soccer game Ghana against Germany, if you want to join us, please tell us, there are only some free spots left. Otherwise you will have to pay a entrance fee of $10.

So it was another very nice PuB NiGHT with a lot of fun and a great chance to meet the other people from INTERNeX, especially the people which arrived in Vancouver a few days ago. Next week we will have a PuB & Club NiGHT on Friday, you really shouldn’t miss that!

Hope to see you guys on Saturday for the soccer game or at one of the other upcoming events !!!

Pub Night Review

It’s the day after Pub Night, sometimes referred to Hangover-Thursday. Yesterday we went to the lovely Irish Pub on Granville and Nelson. We were around 20 INTERNeX people, quite a lot 🙂

Of course we had our usual drinks and food. For those who did not tried the food it is pretty good and the burger which was eaten at the opposite of me, looked delicious. However for the ‘healthy’ ones underneath us the salad is also very good. Besides food and drinks, there was also some fussball matches going on and of course the usual talk about what’s going on on the weekend. Let’s cross our fingers for the weekend that the sun is coming out and we can enjoy our bike ride through Stanley park!

On Monday the first soccer game for Germany will be played and of course we will be cheering for Germany from Canada. If you want you can join us to watch the game at 9am at Sciue on 800 pender street next to the Pacific Centre. It is a nice Italian bistro sweet menu cart, a breakfast is around $6. You are free to join us.

See you on Saturday!
