New to Zurich from PA

Hello,

I moved to Zurich at the beginning of the year but just started to find the time to start 'integrating' into this new world. I enjoy playing sports, anything really, as well as I like to travel. Looking to meet some people. I've checked the Social Events but didn't find anything that is in Zurich, really. So, if anyone is interested in meeting for a beer, let me know.

Hope to hear from people!
Jess

Hi, guys, I'm a recent transplant, too! Let me know if you set up a beer date...perhaps I will pop in.

(I'm actually American, but have found that my English has taken a decidedly British turn since moving here...funny...)

Re: New to Zurich from PA

Hi

I am always up for a beer if anyone fancies it. I am from Crawley near Gatwick and work in Zurich. Spend much of my time at work here, so to go out would be good.

Cant do the next 3 weekends as I am flying home to the wife and kids, but any day after work is fine by me!

Scott

Re: New to Zurich from PA

Hello Everyone,

So, Anna had suggested S.ip's English Pub. It is on Schaffhauserstrasse 380.

I am unsure myself how to get there but I figure we could meet at Oerlikon station and walk together. I think I have walked by it a few times but not positive

How does 18:30 sound for meeting at the station? Please feel free to write me an private message and I will give my cell number to you.

Let me know if you are interested!
Jessica

Careful. There was a stabbing there about two weeks ago - it didn't sound so homely in the media.

Re: New to Zurich from PA

To get to Sips.you want to be on the Track 1 side of the station. Walking out from the stairs at Track 1 just follow the sidewalk left (direction Burger King) along the station and then follow the curve along track 1 down the hill to the stoplight at Schaffhauserstrasse. The bar is across the street from the light.

How funny I only live about five minutes away and didn't know there was an English pub there. I guess it is not so obvious from the outside.

Re: New to Zurich from PA

There also appears to be a Pub Quiz at St. Joseph's (check out the Social Events calendar) tomorrow night at 8:00p. Anyone up for that, either in addition, or instead? No idea how far apart they are from eachother, or where everyone is coming from, but thought I'd mention it...
