*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Total Bar, Tellstrasse 19, 8004

Please come help me celebrate my unemployedness.

It's been a while since we've had an official Weekend Drinks, so let's gather to meet old friends and welcome the newbies.

Total Bar
Tellstrasse 19, 8004
Off Langstrasse

http://maps.google.ch/maps/place?cid...9&spn=0,0&z=12

I discovered Total bar at the end of the summer and enjoy its good choice of beer and cheap prices. The charming industrial decor makes me feel like I am at a bar in a small Italian manufacturing town

The place is small, so do come early if you want to avoid the cold weather outside.

Re: WEEKEND DRINKS ZURICH returneth

For those who went, I hope you all had a good time . So wanted to go but got lost twice (both en-route to and from a meeting in Zurich) and was starving by the time I found my way back to the main station, in addition to running late for this event. Had a nice fish supper at NordSee accompanied with 2 dls of a delicious but strong () Chardonnay. The wine totally made me tired so decided to come home straight after. Will be there for the next Weekend Drinks and will avoid arranging meetings uptown on the day!

Good fun night!

Kswiss took a bunch of fantastic photos as well. PM her, I guess, if you are interested. I think she convinced a fair number of people to buy her style of camera.

I'd say so. I was well impressed with that little camera, especially with that fast 20mm prime on it. Beats carrying a bulky DSLR around with you.

Anyway, thanks to HB for organising. It was great to see the old faces again, and meet the new faces last night. Looking forward to the next one.

Re: WEEKEND DRINKS ZURICH returneth

Thanks to HashBrown for arranging a nice night out. The venue is great for getting people close to each other. It was a real pleasure meeting new faces and old.

Some Swiss dude quietly asked me if all "English" girls were so much fun and it never occured to him the point of getting hammered in a bar was to talk to equally hammered sexy, intelligent people of the opposite sex. It was a revelation to him!

"Goodness, we do it all the time!"

I didn't have the heart to tell him that potential successful conquests in a bar leading to carnal pleasures lead to a deeper level of attraction, then holidays, dinners galore, parties and visits to the family, more holidays, endless wine, days lying in the grass watching the clouds, concerts, new furniture, a home, more wine, perhaps children - even a wedding - then the honeymoon, wine, comfort and sexual adventurism, loving arms, laughter... and the inevitable decline, the lies, the boredom, denial, drudgery, bills, disagreements leading to nuclear options, no sex, no laughter, stress, pain, breakup, low self esteem, longing, denial, vulnerability, bitterness, rebounds, damage, bills, pain, pain...

So I told him it's best to just go home alone, fill his pipe and watch BBC3.

I think we'll have a new Swissie signing up soon, though.

Yes, the Panny 20mm prime is an amazing lense. One just has to decide between the various Panny and Oly bodies to put behind it.

Sorry I couldnt get to the drinks but I had to meet my future landlord that evening. From starting househunting to signing a lease all in 2 days: who says looking for a flat is hard in Zurich :-) !!!!!!!!!

My official move date is 12th March and very much looking forward to meeting you all after that.

Re: WEEKEND DRINKS ZURICH returneth

Thanks to HB again for setting this up. It was really nice to meet all of you and put some faces to names.
Thanks as well to the two of you that dragged (well I did ask) off to the CS event.
