*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Lugano-Bioggio
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Il Birrificio di Bioggio, Bioggio

Next Wednesday - here's a chance to get together, shoot the breeze and enjoy one (or more if you're not driving ) good beers, brewed on the spot (all the machinery is there and I think it can be visited).
Yours truly, along with a couple of other EF-fers (and lurkers) will be there.

If we're lucky there could even be some live music (they haven't programmed anything so far).

Obligatory link to the Yello Pages
http://yellow.local.ch/it/d/Bioggio/...&where=bioggio

Bioggio can be reached with the "trenino" Lugano-Ponte Tresa, for those who prefer public transportation.

Obligatory googley map:

As they say in Ticino... Sa vedým!

  • Doctor Memory + 1 guest - Public transit dependent, so if we can get there via the train, that makes it likely. Thanks so much! Also, when does it start? I don't see a time in the message.
RSVP'd No: 1
  • JLF - wish this wasn't mid-week...
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Shoot the breeze and down a beer!!

Hi Doc,
As it is a friendly gathering, rather than a formal event, I've indicated a rough 7.30 pm onwards.
Also, I might still have one place free in my car. What side of town do you live in?

Ciao

Paul

You can take the FLP to Bioggio, then walk a couple minutes.

OK, so what time is everyone planning on showing up?

I'm flexible, any time works for me, just don't want to arrive too early or late.

Thanks, all. I've been miserably busy for a week and so haven't been perusing the Forum. Looking forward to this evening's get together and meeting you all.

Re: Shoot the breeze and down a beer! [Lugano-Bioggio]

Alright - so the post about me being 4'8" was partially proved correct as the place was packed (despite what I had been told when I called to reserve the table...) and I just didn't notice some of the people walking in.

And - my bad - I had my cell switched to silent (ah...these ever-so-civil swiss perfectionists ) so I didn't hear when Jellybean tried calling me.
I apologize profusely, once again. I hope you guys had a good time with jason, the supercomputer specialist, and that you enjoyed the beers!

It was great meeting Lofty - couldn't have chosen a more apt name...he is SO tall he had to curl up to get into my Prius ... and luckily my guest - a lanky american - could not make it, otherwise we would have had *some* logistical problem there!!

And Dr Memory..... - it was *great* meeting another interesting food, travel and culture lover!! Affaire ŗ suivre, as they say

Tom st2lemans (e signora) was his usual chirpy self, gushing about his passion for HOT food and his collection of home grown chili peppers (and rotten, excuese me - ripe - cheeses, LOL).

Thank you all for making it down to Bioggio, and for making it interesting and worthwile!

Ciao

Paul

A big thanks to Paul (aka Uncle Groove), a super nice guy! Nice meeting you Bob and Tom and girlfriend.

How does everyone feel about having an event every month or two now that the ball is rolling?

I enjoyed meeting everyone as well. Good beer + la pizza in retardo! I'd be up for a regular get together, yes. Thanks, Dr. GroOve for initiating.
