(Social) Pool Night

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!

Good point. But pasty white is on the other hand the perfect canvas for tattoos... you can never get them that colorful on black skin.

Talk about veering off-topic. But, to your point, coloured folk are already colourful.

Will you be showcasing your tatoos tonight?

Re: (Social) Pool Night

Thanks to everyone who came out. It was a much more chill outing than usual (at least as far as the pool part went).

I had a really good time meeting the new people and catching up with the old. Hope to see you all again soon.

I needed that hour off from working and driving, pity I couldn't last any longer though.

not sure. Probably in a couple weeks. March 4 is when I am thinking right now.

You going to make it this time? Or just keep promising?

It's worth the wait though. As P.T. Barnam once said, "Do not scatter your powers."

When the time is right
