24.02.2011 19:30 to 22:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich (8045)
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Abyssinia Restaurant, Austrasse 19

After the success of a few outings (Ladies' night, Hash's night, and the most recent A-Z dining night) for Ethiopian food, I am organizing another night there.

We were just there on Saturday night where they serve only buffet-style for the evening (food is served 19.30, it is about 28CHF/person and the place was completely full). Although we were initially hesitant to stay for the buffet, because we like to order off the menu here, we were blown away at the variety they served (pretty much the full menu) and how good (and spicy) it was. I have always been a fan of Ethiopian food, and specifically this place, and so here we go again...

Abyssinia Restaurant
Austrasse 19
8045 Zurich

RSVPs limited to 25 and they are now CASH ONLY. Please respond definitively by Feb 22 so that if there is a waiting list, I can clear it before the event. If you see the RSVP list closed and are interested in coming, please pm me so that I can add you to the waiting list.

Hope to see many of you there!

I was hoping for a ladies only event, except for me of course.

Nelly, nelly, nelly... You and your cross-dressing habits are really not my concern. If you dress like a woman though, you must act like a woman.

That can be arranged. As long as you come in and say to me: "I'm your Huckleberry" like in Tombstone...

FSCK THAT!! Last time I shaved my legs it itched like a mofo for weeks afterwards. Can I just hide my gorilla type hairy legs in a pair of tights instead?

Problem with coming as a "lady" is I always have nothing to wear.

...and, I seem to recall her wanting to move to Zurich a few months ago.

Maybe that was just rumor though (oh, wait, it came from her own mouth)...

Just wear a nice pair of slacks, or a below the knee skirt with high boots. There are ways!
