18.02.2011 19:30 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Volkshaus

Ladies and Gentleman, come one, come all. For I, sygirl101, am bringing back Weekend Drinks to my favorite semi-classy haunt "Volkshaus".

It's between Stauffacher and Helvetiaplatz, with a decent Thai place right down the street, for those of you who are slightly peckish.

As always, old and young members are happily invited. I'll try to stake out the clock table if possible around 1930.

If you're a newbie not sure how to find us other than asking for EnglishForum, just send me PM and we'll figure something out. As always, I'll post what I'm going to be wearing that night, so people can find me.
RSVP'd Yes: 18 (17 members and 1 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 12 (9 members and 3 guests)
  • araqyl - Hmm ... after two nights of underwater hockey this week, will be interesting to find out if I'm allowed out again!
  • Miss-Lizzy
  • saraCan
  • MariaMARIA
  • Doctor
  • jigz + 3 guests - The +3 will still be going, but the cold may make me sit this one out :(
  • Ouchboy - maybes.. who knows? not me... You're face to face With the Man who Sold the World
  • LeonC
  • windi - Should be able to make it, but no promises
RSVP'd No: 6
  • HashBrown
  • grumpygrapefruit
  • zwissmiss - I'm in Portugal for a wedding - thanks for organising the weekend drinks though!
  • litespeed - in Belgium
  • BokerTov - I would love to go, but I'll be in Geneva this time. Looking forward to the next one!
  • seeingbee - Sorry to miss it-- looks like a good crowd! Next time....
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Have you got fresh batteries?

I hope so, otherwise you won't be able to hear a thing!
I've heard of girls with toys that need batteries - but I did not get the hearing thing.

In my country, a woman's mastery of her gastronomical releases is considered the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Re: Weekend Drinks Zurich: Sygirl101 Strikes Back

by the way---good job on the tags.

I didn't even know about these so called "social-events" But was doing a google search for 'semi-classy sygirl101' and this was the first hit. How about that

We used to have fun with tags in all threads. But that was at a time where the expat forum was less Swiss about fun...

true dat - I somehow became a veteran then.. these days I just check events every few weeks - but hey there are other things out there besides EF - one thing that speaks for it at the moment is that while Facebook is blocked at work EF is not...

I didn't have to click on that, I assumed what it was about - as some kind sole on a football forum I frequent created a whole thread about it, without any warning in the thread title!

I also wonder what some people google ...

Re: Weekend Drinks Zurich: Sygirl101 Strikes Back

Thanks to everyone for such a fun night. I went there to "have only one" and I am pretty sure we were the last to leave (from the EF crew).

Sadly, I didn't make it to work this morning like I was supposed to... Wait, I am not necessarily that sad about it.

Nice to meet a few new faces, and really great to see the many not so new ones. Thanks to that hot sygirl for organizing.
