*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Abyssinia, Austrasse 19, 8045 Zürich

Well this is an idea that has worked successfully for some time in Munich and I happily admit that I am going to try and copy it here!
The idea is to meet once per month at a restaurant in Zürich and work progressively through the alphabet . . . hence the A-Z
So let`s start with the letter . . . er. . . A.
Based on the earelier feedback (Abyssinia v Mama Africa) I have booked a table for 16 people, so place are limited, at the following restaurant
http://www.abyssinia-restaurant.ch/

THE TABLE IS BOOKED FOR 19:30
If you want to join, please register below.
So let`s go!
I already have a good idea for February.
RSVP'd Yes: 8 (7 members and 1 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 4 (3 members and 1 guests)
  • saraCan
  • blackgammon + 1 guest - New to EF events, up for giving it a whirl (assuming I finish work!)
  • franci - work still hectic, I may not be able to join you.. :-((
RSVP'd No: 8
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Have to say . . . for 'A', I'd definitely go for Alpenrose . . .

Just a bump for this event - if you can think about food with Christmas on the doorstep!

Er Debs, I think you might have committed yourself to a group of gorillas on the same day too?

I'd like to point out, that this time, I will bring my missus around and that I'll be on my best behavior....and I will refrain from smashing beer cans on my forehead this time.

Does that mean we also have to be on good behaviour ?

Hi Basher

Thanks for arranging this evening. I had a lovely time and it was real nice meeting everyone who attended.

Am looking forward to your suggested dinner "B". If we do go there, I won't even think of trying to dress the part. They win already .

Cheers!

Aw, sorry to hear that. As it happened we went to another great "A" restaurant - the Apollo Taverna in Schwamendingen
