What meeting? There was not a meet up because of that.. I can't trace the EF meets, so rare in our area. The burger place? I only remember gata..Anjela, and grynch from our brit pub meet. Or Grumpy's cheese events. The recent crowd I remember - Patsy, McTav, Frank Zappa, etc. My memory isn't the best - can you change your avatar to something more you? Or wear...uhm..like a red bow, or something. We gotta have more meet ups in Romandie, seriously. I look the same I think.

I should make it, Anjela set it up for 18:30, right?

Yay for Friday. Not yay for the rain but the cafe is cool and Carouge is very...Prague-ish Frog style.
The meeting was in ZH with Editor Bob side kick.

Humour??? No one mentioned Humour! Do we have permission and have the required forms been filled in and submitted to the relevant authorities?

Yes. That permission is called sense of humor People can submit on Fridays, via any EF thread.

I will have a Slavic looking dress on and black tall boots, if a newbie shows up and knows nobody.

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

A very nice evening indeed! I am sure next time it will be mega hyper grand event!

I hope everybody got home ok. BabyJane - lovely to have met you! Ff - you are a good buddy to laugh with and taste wine with, in a very non-snob way. Anjela - hang in there, Patsy - we are keeping an eye on you, big style. Let anyone know should you need anything and let's meet up in a couple of weeks! Park Bastion, if weather permits and a pot luck (those who can). McTavg - you are hillarious, and your outfit was marvellous. I think your accent has rubbed off a little, I will try not to speak with that Scotish weirdness today

Alrighty - let's plan for hyper big next time. Bastion is fun (plus there are giant chess boards there). Mid-june?

Great evening, thank you for organising this! Bastion has a giant chess board indeed... and big open spaces for any impromptu yodels! Patsy, yes, shout and ask with no inhibition! Let's swap hats next time, I'm jealous! Managed to get lost in one way traffic system on the way back, passing right close to Rive every time but not quite managing to get to it. In the end, Mrs McTav almost had to wait for her lift!

I think these flight delays are just an excuse to hang out longer in bars around Carouge!

Nah, I'm an old lady who desperately needs her beauty sleep.
Although as a chronic insomniac hanging around in a carougois bar is infinitely more fun!

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Just in case anyone's missed the June get-together notice that MusicChick has posted (but should see this as you're subscribed to this thread).... please check out 'Events'.

Picnic on the 16th of June, Parc des Bastions at 19.00.

I've got cups/mug-type things in the picnic hamper.... but do bring plastic glasses if you'd prefer!
Hope it doesn't rain..... forecast looking slightly iffy at the moment.

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

I saw that, about the weather, it's going to be hot hot hot until Friday... then it goes down to 23 degrees.

Anyway, that's just a little cloud on our evening!! I am sure that we can go to Plan B, if all goes haywire. And around five or six - we shall notice that. With those thunder clouds a rollin' in...

Plastic beakers? I'll bring the Waterford Chrystal.....!!! Not.

Re: A reminder!! Geneva Meetup

Bumpety bump.

Reminder that a few genevois reprobates are meeting up tomorrow (Friday 16th June, as per Events listing), and we're wondering why the other usual suspects (McTavGE for example) aren't joining us???

Anyone else interested???? We don't bite.
