21.01.2011 20:00 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich (8005)
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Billiardino, Heinrichstrasse 245

UPDATE ON PAGE 3 IN BLUE. PLEASE NOTE: START TIME CHANGED TO 20.30!!! (But if I change it on the event description, it erases all the RSVPs, so...)

Similar to Friday Night Drinks, but with pool happening in the background. This is the first 2011 installment, and it will occur relatively regularly--say once every three weeks or so...

We play, we drink, we just want to have fun! As always, come if you want to play, if you want to drink, if you want to meet new people, and/or if you are interested in seeing what it is all about. It is usually a great crowd and all are welcome.

Location:
Billiardino
Heinrichstrasse 245
8005 Zurich, Switzerland
043 960 33 33

As usual, trash talking to commence below. And of course, any questions can be pm'ed to me or asked below as well. I will give a final update on the day of the event with my clothing selection (for any newbies who don't know who I am) and where we will be located in the pool hall based on the number of attendees (normally, we are in the back left corner).

Looking forward to (hopefully) a great turnout!

I'm not exactly the Sporty Spice.
I like glass lifting and bed hopping, other sports are just to embarrassing me
You don't need to be sporty spice to hold a stick and move it slowly back and forth... it is more about precision, timing and stuff.

(somebody will comment on this wording in 3, 2, 1...)

I'd let you win and I can even make it look as if I am really that bad... ok, I am. That's why the Fridays are good. No matter how bad you are, you will find somebody worse. And you don't have to play those pool league guys. You don't have to play at all, but can only lift the glass and chat instead.

Next time... and get better.

Re: (Social) Pool Night

MORNING OF THE EVENT UPDATE:

START TIME MOVED BACK TO 20.30. Apologize for this guys, but I am not going to be able to (for sure) be there by 20.00. I will most likely be, but since it is not 100%, I don't want any newbies showing up and no one there...

I will be wearing red velvet pants with a leopard print top, as chosen by lumi.

HA! No, I won't. I haven't fully decided yet, but I will be in gray or black pants and either a red or navy blue t-shirt. I am about 5'4'', medium-build, dark reddish-brown hair (most likely up), name = Julie. Look for me if you are new and I will introduce you around.

We should be in the back left corner of the pool hall. If you are concerned about finding us, please let me know and I will pm you my number.

Looking forward to it...

It means the organized pool doesn't start until 20.30... I will get there as soon as I can but I couldn't be certain (with my crazy work schedule) that I would be there and ready to go at 20.00. Thus, I pushed back the time.

You will be alright, I am certain of it. See you a bit later.

So disapointing. Leopard and red velvet are such a great combination.
