City/Town: Bern
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Markthalle

It's time for Fasnacht!

A great way for newbies to see the city of Bern at its livliest, and for everyone else to get out and about, drink and be just a little madder than usual.
Dress warmly, and be prepared to do some walking, dancing in the streets, and of course, for those inclined, drinking.

So calling all residents in Bern and everyone around Bern! Lets go and have some fun.

Time: 8.30pm
The 11th of March is a Friday.
RSVP'd Yes: 12 (6 members and 6 guests)
  • nicole89m
  • Bumble-Bee + 1 guest - which day and time?
  • domination87
  • graham + 5 guests - I have to meet friends at Schmiedstube at 7 pm, and we meet again at 10 pm at Zunft zu Webern. Food and drinks. We should publish our handy numbers.
  • chill_lee - Yes :)
  • Starbug - www.markthalle-bern.ch has a map for all those who do not know where the Markthalle is. I will at the upstairs bar, have short blonde hair and will be carrying a red bag. I will also have a sign of some sort. My mobile is 078 619 71 23 if anyone needs ...
RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 2
  • Kamarate - I think maybe not this weekend, but I would love to come to a future event in Bern. Have a great time on Saturday, everyone!
  • ZenAgent - Wish I could, but I work Fridays. :( Look forward to future Bern events!
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Just to let Ittigen know...you didn't miss anything on Fasnacht. Only domination87 showed up as planned. No word from anyone else. I have decided to resist the temptation from organising or posting anymore events. It wasn't fair that domination87 got to sit around the Markthalle forever waiting for people to show up- finally we just left, so if anyone else came, which I doubt, bad luck, you missed a fun night out.
Anyway, as I was saying,I can't be bothered to organise events for people who can't be bothered to even show up. It seems a waste of time. And if anyone even says that the events aren't "fun" or not what they would do, then I have one word of advice, do it yourself. Knock yourself out. You're all right, Bern is boring. The great show up on Fasnacht proved that. Thanks Domination87 for showing up and waiting around as long as you did.

Wow it is a shame that the Bern social scene from englishforum is not really working perfectly . I say this as I really do want to move to Bern one day and was looking forward for a support network of friends who speak English. I will be visiting Spiez for a week at the end of May/June (over for the England v Switzerland game) and for 3 weeks in August so please let me know if any events are actually going to take place as I will attend.

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Don't get disheartened! When I first arranged something, it didn't go anywhere. Same for another person in Neuch. Then we had 2 fantastic meet-ups. Then nobody could come out when I wanted to, so I went out alone. We're meeting up again on Thursday. It sucks when you get let down, but it doesn't mean that will happen all the time. Chin up, just try again! I really wanted to come, but it's difficult when the trains are so crappy. I definitely want to come over at some point and, unless I cancel with enough notice (as I did this time), if I say I'm coming - I am!!!

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Aww, I'm sorry to learn there was no turn out. I'm waiting to hear from a friend before I can rsvp to the Museum Night on the 18th. I hope more can come, even if out of shame for not showing up to this event.

Thank you Starbug for really trying. It really is depressing sitting around with Domination all evening (Joke!) and to the rest: shame on you!

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Unfortunately, I am sick. I have a raging flu' that is not going away and it looks like I have to sit out Museum Night this time. I hope Domination87 can carry the flag for that one.

Have fun all.

Hey I just came back home and saw your post, it's a pity I'm seeing it only now, otherwise I would have shown up at the markthalle. Btw I was walking around Bern like a lost ghost, nobody contacted me even tho I wrote down my num in here =P
Well it was a cool evening anyway, see ya some other time, hopefully next weekend at papa joe's

Re: Berner Fasnacht

I just got here end of last week and couldn't find any events in Berne that are planned for April. Would anyone kindly let me know if you guys are meeting up soon? I would love to make some new acquaintances.

Thank you.

Re: Berner Fasnacht

Domination, Shisha sounds awesomeeeeee,,,, I absolutely love it,, I saw someone having shisha infront of the lebanese restaurant in bern called dominos but I am not sure if they actually serve it there or just a friend of the owner was having a break haha
on the other hand I know an awesome shisha place in fribourg they even have honey tasting shisha...

its such a pitty we missed each other on the museum night. sorry about that mate. hope to catch you up sometime soon perhaps papa joes for drinks sometime would be nice.
lets first see how the event for the girls night out will turn out to be.
