Looking for a drinking buddy - Zurich/Staefa

Hi

I moved to Switzerland last year, and on top of bringing my family over from the UK, finding an apartment, buying a car settling in a new job, I managed to make a friend ........ who I happened to meet on the English forum. Unfortunately my only friend (drinking buddy) left Switzerland in Nov/Dec and I have been too busy to find a replacement.

That brings us to today. Today the sun was shining and people were chatting in bars/pubs all over Zurich. It was seeing this that made me think - who am I going to be having afterwork beers in the sun with?? (Did I mention my name is not Billy No-Mates although this would be quite apt.)

So if you are new to Zurich or even not new to Zurich and you would like to meet for a few beers every so often (especially in the Summer) please let me know.

I am a 31 yr old male Englishman and I generally like all bloke type things. Including sport and beer and wine.

I also have a family (2 small children (age 2) and a Mrs), and it would also be good to meet other similar families to BBQ with etc.

I am happy to meet almost anywhere, although in Zurich or along the Gold Coast would be preferable.

Thanks in advance if anyone actually replies to this and does decide to befriend me.

Best.
Scott

P.s. First beer is on me!

Speaking of Staefa, I had a particularly good cordon blue at a place on the hill not so long ago. It wasn't far from the tennis courts. From what I recall, they had a large outdoor seating area overlooking the lake, too.

I'm not befriending you...yet. Just mentioning.

Mr Connery - I remember speaking with you last year when I first arrived. We discussed at some length suitable cars for CH.

May I ask, why from 1 June?

I just checked the website of this place and it looks pretty good for beers!

Thanks, it's my bar! There's a mixed group of expats of many countries who meet here most Thursday evenings, come down then, say hello and I'll introduce you.

Re: Looking for a drinking buddy - Zurich/Staefa

Hello all on this thread -

I am new to town as well, sort of...living in seebach with my husband and 0 kids and 1 dog...would love to get together with some English/American blokes/bloke-ets for BBQ/beer and general debauchery.

Especially with the warmer, spring/summer weather coming....anywhere around seebach is, of course, preferred.
anywhere around zurich easily reached via tram (14) is a close second preference...

I can't promise a permanent friendship, but I can promise...well, um....I like to BBQ and can bring the meat??

Can anyone promise a permanent friendship?

BBQ around the lake would be awesome. Or anywhere else, I am not picky.
