Re: St. Patrick Day celebrations in Basel

Normally Paddys does tend to get really crowded, I intend to grab and hold seats in one of the corners as soon as I get in

Re: St. Patrick Day celebrations in Basel

I will probably be at Paddy's. Is there a secret way to recognise other EF people?

Re: St. Patrick Day celebrations in Basel

It's looking more and more likely that I'll be coming directly from work.

My phone number is [removed]. I'll be there at 1930 and will be in a group next to the bar, by the elevated section. Text me when you are in, as it will not be possible to talk on the phone with the surrounding noise.

See you guys there. Happy St. Paddys day!

Sooo i guess you haven't been to Paddy's in a looong time! There is no longer an elevated section by the bar. But they opened an upstairs bar and have new bathrooms!

Re: St. Patrick Day celebrations in Basel

I'm sorry, I have to cry off as well. Wasn't feeling well yesterday, the wet weather is killing me today.

I hope everyone has a fantastic time, whatever they are doing. ♥

Went in last night but I could not heave my bulk through the door for all the people inside and I went out again.
Sorry,

I was there from about 4.30 to 6.30. Couldn't stay any longer because the Mrs was at home sick.
