A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Some people don't always look in the Events part of the Forum.

So, am reposting here.

We are meeting on the 16th of December, from 6pm onwards for pre-Christmas drinks.

The venue is L'Equinoxe, rue Pont-Neuf, 9 in Carouge. It is just in front of the tram stop "Armes", there is parking nearby.

As these meet ups are few and far between, it would be nice to see as many of you possible! If you can post a yay or nay in the events part, then i shall see if i need to book a table.

Come on Genevans, let's show them "up there" that we are not dreary, boring old sods!! Even if you only stay for half an hour... Hibernation doesn't officially start until the 2nd of January!!

Hope to see you!!

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Certainly worth a reminder,as I would never think of looking for an EF social event in Geneva .

I'll see what I can do, as I am no longer regularly in Geneva for work. 18h on Friday is not that convenient for an Annecy dweller, but, hey, I might not get another chance for years, so I'll give it a "yes".

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Looking forward to seeing Patsycat and FZ again.... and anyone else who can be bothered to put their outdoor clothes on and turn up!!!!

The date is my fault not Patsy's I'm afraid, one of the few days I know for sure I'll be in town.

We can meet earlier, if that helps. I'm only a couple of tram stops away.

Don't change anything. The traffic at the border will have died down by the time we've danced the early evening away.

PJs are good, I am a fan!

I might be able to make it, I have to see still. Will be travelling from EPFL so if I show up, it will be around 19:00 I think

Anyone for a game of chess?

Lovely idea to organise this, Patsy!

At least my city's main attractions are not some crooked 3rd world despots and a supercharged garden hose; yes, there, I said it.

Supercharged garden hose? Sounds....weird. Freud would have a field day. Hahahah.

Some confused yank tourists asked me on a train the other day "Where they can see the spout". Yep, it is a kind of spout.

It's true GE is grimey but only some areas.

Speaking of which, I wonder if we could meet anywhere closer to Cornavin. Or is the place Patsy picked close?

Definitely a bit nicer in Carouge .. But Cornivan would be convenient!

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

It's only about ten minutes on the 18 tram!! Door to door.

Let me have a think, the places I know around Cornavin are a bit dodgy!!

There is Mulligans Irish Bar. The last time i was there, which was about two weeks ago, a pint of Kilkenny was 10 francs!! And it can get very crowded. And i doubt I can reserve a table.

Anjela, what do you think? I'd like to stay with the original plan. Also, if Frank Zappa is coming it is easier for him to go to Carouge. When one of you organise something, we can go nearer Cornavin!!

LIB, you are on the Blacklist for all further invitations to Geneva!!! Not that we'd want your grumpy, negative attitude anyway!!

Neddy, i am rarely out of my pjs - but shall try and make an effort this once!!

On a purely selfish note, my office is way up at almost annemasse so it takes me 30 mins to reach the 18 tram at Bel Air.. On way to Cornivan. Or suppose i could just stay on the 12 tram for an hour

But yes, everything will be rammed around there on a Friday night, no chance of a seat never mind reserving a table.
