02.09.2011 to 03.09.2011 18:00 to 00:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich, 8005
Event Type: Other
Location: Markthalle, Limmatsrasse 231
Price: Free entry

Come and help us celebrate the 1st birthday of the Markthalle Im Viadukt on Friday 2nd September!

Details are still a bit sketchy but I can say that there will be lots of good food, including some free tasters and live music. The market won't look quite as normal as some islands will be partially taken down ready for some major changes on the Monday...... more details on that later.

I've put a start time as 18.00 but I'm sure we will be kicking off earlier.

As the program shows, some of shops in the arches will also be hosting events during the evening. See you there!

Re: Viadukt 1st Birthday celebration party.

Just to confirm details for the evening....

Some of the market islands will be partially taken down and a series of long tables will be installed with seating. You can buy food and drinks direct from the market stall holders to eat (rather than just the restaurant) and we hope to have Rappi Gold on draught and will be serving cheese plates and maybe toasted cheddar bagels. The party starts at 5.00 and goes on until 11.00 but the main bar will stay open until 2.00 in the morning. There will be music too!

I'm not sure if I can do this, but I will try to reserve spaces around the cheese and Pie island for the EF gang, maybe we will try to persuade the usual Thursday night unofficial gang to come the night after for this week.

Fair go Grumpy !!!!

That's at least 17 beers to 'sample' at approx 5chf a pop.

I will need 85chf, and an AMBULANCE to get me home.

......... The "Party" may continue through to saturday mate, but the Hangover is going to be killing me through to mid next week.

Re: Viadukt 1st Birthday celebration party.

Wish I could be there. Any chance of getting hold of Doom Bar or decent ciders e.g. the Winkleigh Cider or Old Rosie?

That's just part one of my new beer selection, the big delivery is arriving Monday. In all, I will have about 50 different beers.... almost one a week for a year.

That will do nicely. I'll be along in the very near future (especially given your subsequent beer-a-week post!).
