Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

We are ON!

I got the chairs, extra glasses and plates! I am ready to host my first (and hopefully not last ) Absinth & Comedy night.

I am guessing it will not be such a rowdy one as people need to save their energy for the A-Z the next day.

Yeah, we're ON!

I will wait at the Kirche Fluntern Stop til 6.50pm to escort you to the venue. So be there if you don't want to run around the neighbourhood in the middle of the night.

Looking forward to this, will bring some Absinth and Rum.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

Great night! - says he who only stayed for 3 shows of comedy.
Seriously though this IS a great event and I was happy to re-join it and see loads of people again. Just a pity I was so tired and couldnt last the course.
Thanks, a BIG thanks to Zwissmiss for hosting the event and for the great food . . . that was S.P.I.C.E.Y. .
When I told i-b-deborah - 'bloody hell, that is hot!` . . . . she couldnt wait to try it . . .ha ha ha
As usual . . . . great comedy.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

Thank you, Zwissmiss, I had a really good time!

Your elderflower champagne is something else - you should go into production! The food was delicious and Ben's chocolate mousse cake just divine.

Great comedy - the Russell Peters DVD was fantastic - and great company, "old" and "new".

Thanks, i-b-D, for the lift home.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

Bummer, bummer, bummer!!! As I said on the phone last night, I am very sorry I had to miss - what a c*** way to spend a Friday evening

(boss' wife was pissed also 'cause they had to cancel some night out too...)

Anyway, hope you all had fun and that you get to replicate tonight. Until the next one...and I will save the wines I planned to bring to share them soon with you all

I agree! Total bummer that you (and a few other regulars) were not there! We did our best to have a great time without you though .

Thanks to all who came, I had an excellent night, my jaws are still hurting from laughing so much.
