City/Town: Neuchâtel
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Kiosk in Place Pury

Hi all,

It has been such a long time since we organised anything (I believe the last thing was the torrée neuchâteloise kindly organised by Odile) that I thought the Fête des Vendanges would be a great opportunity to do so.

As anyone who has already been to one knows, trying to organise to meet up in the evening is madness as we will never be able to find each other, talk or stick together, plus we probably have our own plans. What I propose we do is meet in Place Pury around 2pm and find somewhere from there to have a drink together. This will give us the opportunity to have a proper catch up/introduction. I wanted to do this especially for those who are new in town and don't know anybody - no sense in going to the Fête des Vendanges alone!

Would anyone be interested?
RSVP'd Yes: 5 (5 members and No guests)

  • zanaty
  • PaulMc - Ill be there... Looking forward to meeting you... Sry for the post reply I'm a newbie to this thing :)
RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • Belgianmum - Not sure if we're around that weekend but if we are we'll try to come for a drink.
  • bosco - Should be around. About time I made an effort!
  • Noth - Depends what time I wake up
RSVP'd No: 1
  • Odile - Sadly no as this is the week-end old school friends who live near Geneva have chosen for a reunion, after he has been VERY poorly. Should organise (better this time;) ) another torrée soon.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Thought I would give this thread a bump and, following discovering that I have way more overtime to use up than I thought, inform you that I am free all day on the Friday. Meeting up with colleagues in the evening but if someone wants to do something in the afternoon, I'm there!

Re: Neuchâtel Fête des Vendanges meet-up

Just want to point out that Place Pury is *really* vague as a meeting point for FdV. Better say in front of which building to be at, since all the crowds in public transport pass through there...

I thought the kiosk in Place Pury was as good as you can get in Place Pury for precision. There is only the one kiosk so I don't think it's that vague as a meeting point.

Having said that I usually arrange to meet people underneath the statue of Pury next to the exit from the tram terminus and car park as that's easily recognisable.

We're currently undecided between the Desalpe in Lignieres and the fete des vendanges for Saturday afternoon.

Yeah, I think next to the kiosk (as in actually where you buy stuff rather than just somewhere around the little structure in the square) is ok - it's Saturday afternoon, not at night when there will be squillions of people!

Re: Neuchâtel Fête des Vendanges meet-up

Hi all - I survived last night. For the rest of us that did, we are meeting at the kiosk in Place Pury at 2. I will probably have a pink and grey backpack with me.

I'm here - for a full description: Pink and grey backpack, Desigual jumper, jeans, grey trainers/sneakers, white sunglasses, holding a bottle of water and probably looking at a phone with a purple cover.
