Not so new in Zurich

Hey there,

I've been living in Zurich for over 2 yrs and feel that now is the time to get connected! I've socialised with more Swiss than Expats, and miss the mother tongue.

So, anyone up for a casual coffee/lunch/after work drinks meet up? Maybe I will post something in the social calendar if enough interest. The more, the merrier!

Note - just looking for people to chill out with and have a laugh.

Cheers,
S2Z

Thanks HollidayG!
Question to All - does the calendar get more busy as the weather gets warmer? Or do newbies like me just have to get out of our comfort zone and organise something?

Re: Not so new in Zurich

Hi!

I've been following this forum a lot, as I'm moving to Zürich this thursday.

I'd love to join you guys, since I don't know anyone in Switzerland, except the guys from my work. Also, my German isn't really great and it would be a pleasure to have a conversation where I understand all the words

/Kristian

Re: Not so new in Zurich

Multiple welcomes to all the newbies on this thread.

I'm also an Aussie but I've lived here for almost 2 years now.

If you're keen to meet other expats, keep your eyes on the "Social pages", or on the "Home" tab (right side) there will be a list of upcoming events.

These events are posted for anybody (especially newbies) who are keen to meet other people etc.
(if you are a bit uncomfortable, just shoot the person hosting the event a personal message with some additional questions, or just to introduce yourself - the approach will be well received).

If you want a 'trial' social event, just pop along to the Viadukt markets on a Thursday night (around 7-9pm..... but the markets shut at 8pm, so head around the back to the restaurant).
Find the "Brittish Cheese Centre" and introduce yourself as an English Forum member and you will be looked after.
Follow this thread (and go to the last page)

Take the Tram 4 or 13 to the Dammweg tram stop, and you will see the Viadukt markets right near there under the rail bridge.

Again..... Welcome

Sounds like a good idea Bill! I would give you a forum "thanks" but I haven't quite worked out how to do this yet....

Welcome S2Z,

Hope you are enjoying it here as much as this fellow Aussie. You just need 10 posts for the thanks button to magically appear!

Re: Not so new in Zurich

Hey guys,

If you are still interessted, i guess we should find a date - when do you guys have time? I basicly just work from 9-17/18 every mon-friday, so if we could make it a weekend of evening, I'm most likely free to go.

Re: Not so new in Zurich

Great for me too! I am out of town in about 1.5 weeks travelling. So let's aim for next Friday night. Got my eye on a few outdoor bars, but the weather looks like it's getting colder/wetter by end of next week. I will send all interested parties here a time/place for next Friday by Wednesday at the latest. Book it in guys!!!

Re: Not so new in Zurich

Ok, sorry for the backflip but it's gonna be Thursday 14 April now this week - Friday is not good.
So I am proposing Goethe Bar in Stadelhofen. Here's the link.
http://www.brasserie-schiller.ch/d/b.../seite498.html
We will meet in front at 7pm. I will send all who has expressed interest here so far a private message. Anymore, let me know by Tuesday.
Should we book some lounges? It gets really busy...

Likewise! We will start in Goethe and then perhaps meander over to the Viadukt per Bill's suggestion. Being a newbie at this, it's a nice back up plan
