City/Town: Talacker bar
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Talacker bar

Well, I fell out of a one way flight to Zurich yesterday, so it's official: I am back in Switzerland... and wanted to jump head first into the world class expat life style of the city with the highest quality of life, but: looks like the events I attended for years have died down?

I know a lot of the old guard have moved on, but I am surprised to see so little on here when it comes to real life meet-ups. So: Who is in for an after-work mid week drink?

As soon as I can gauge the number will I make a reservation. For the time being do I suggest the Talacker bar for the central location as well as the old times...

Who's in? And here the classic intro:

All welcome! Come and meet the faces behind the names. Enjoy a few drinks, make new acquaintances!

Here's the map link

It's around the corner from Paddy Reilly's; staggering distance from Stauffacher, Paradeplatz, Bahnhofstrasse and, er, Kaufleuten.

Trams 2 / 9 to Sihlstrasse.

There'll be an area reserved for us. If in doubt, ask the staff where the English Forum area is and you'll be fine: they all speak English. We're usually in the far back corner, although with warm weather we'll also be loitering outside.

There are often many of us in the bar and we're all, er, English speakers, so you'll have no difficulty finding us.

Most people come alone, so don't be shy of approaching

Underneath the list there's the option to select "Yes", "Maybe", or "No"

Select "Yes" and then click submit. You can of course choose to leave a sarcastic comment as well

I might be able to make it late (22:30 ish). The question is whether you all will be there and in a fit state

So great! I will join you and bring my boyfriend along, so it is 18:30 when we have to be there? Just to be sure I understood correctly
BTW, I am Ariana!

Re: Guess who's back... Zurich midweek drinks anyone?

Chapeau to Herr Treverus for organising. The Talacker nights obviously had a lasting effect. There are marriages and babies as a consequence of the Talacker Death Juice so something must work.

To any newbies considering a few jars: simply turn up and find the group. There are no expectations and everyone pays for their own drinks. No sponsorship, no backhanders, no vested interests.

A smile and a "Hello, I'm..." works wonders.

It would be nice to see some old faces; it would be great to see some new faces. And for old time's sake, here's how you'll recognise us:

No, it's not, so I removed the details rather than deleting it all.

Re: Guess who's back... Zurich midweek drinks anyone?

I am getting on my way now. Look out for a bald white guy and a Chinese lady. I am wearing a black polo shirt and grey shorts. We'll try to get a table outside but that might be difficult, especially for more people.

Re: Guess who's back... Zurich midweek drinks anyone?

Sorry, but my maybe has turned into a no. I've been lumbered with a fair bit of reading that I need to do before a meeting first thing tomrrow morning. At least it's not a 18:00 meeting as can be the case on Fridays

So have fun people and hopefully I'll see you next time.

I popped by a bit later on, probably about 21:30. It was packed and I couldn't see anyone I recognised from the old days.

It was a pretty small group of seven... so not quite the old days yet - but I'd say we went for quality over quantity.

I left around 9.30... but Uncle Max was still around.
