AUSTRALIA DAY

On the 26th January, "El Lokal" will be putting on a bit of an event to celebrate Australia Day. It's not that much given the late notice, however, anywhere Aussies gather to celebrate our national day generally turns out to be a decent show.

Everyone is welcome (especially Kiwi's) so there will be some typically crap Aussie beer (yep, I'm man enought to say that now I live here), and they are trying to source whatever typically Aussie food stuffs they can manage (yep, it's not much).

Anyway, there will be more information to follow as the information becomes available, so for now just indicate an expression of interest below and I will be posting updates as information comes in.

El Lokal
Gessnerallee 11,
8001 Zürich District, Switzerland
+41 43 344 87 50 ‎

RSVP'd Yes: 20 (5 members and 15 guests)

Re: Australia day !!!!

Just knocked over a packet of "Tim Tams" and some Vegemite on toast with the work crew.

...... It was worth it just to watch the Swiss eat Vegemite

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY !!!!


(Also, for the Southerners.... I just heard that the 125th races at Hanging Rock were cancelled due to an "Invasion of Kangaroos".... how awesome is that !!!)

Re: Australia day !!!!

Have a great night guys. We can't make it to Zurich but will try to have an amber beverage or two at the Great Escape this evening.

I'm currently listening to the hottest 100 whilst imagining myself roasting in the 2nd hottest Australia day on record and cooling off at Fairlight Beach.

Australia day makes me so homesick!

Heads up Everyone:

Keep your eyes peeled for an event at the "Oliver Twist" for ANZAC DAY.

Now even Kiwi's don't have an excuse to come and have a drink with us.

It must be brilliant to be from a country where you can actually celebrate The Start Of History

On the downside, it must be rather a bummer to have even less of said history than our cousins from the 13 Colonies have

I guess it must make lessons in Australian History at school that much shorter and easier - not really very much for old Mrs McMurdo to drone on about...

If you need to borrow some history, just ask - we're here to help

Re: Australia day !!!!

Well technically the Australian aboriginals have more history than any current civilisation. But yeah, whatever lets you get to sleep at night.
