City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Drinx Bar, Dufourstrasse 24 Zürich

Hi,

We are organising a "meetup" for couples living in Zurich and Baden.

As its a first event, it is a great opportunity to meet each other informally over a few drinks. And of course, everyone will be new so dont worry about not knowing each other.

The only thing we ask is that you are a couple and come as a couple!!

We have reserved an area in Drinx Bar, Zurich, a lovely informal bar we can all meet, have some drinks and nibbles and get to know each other.

Please send me a message if you'd like to come and I'll give you all the details.

Look forward to meeting you,

Paul

Re: Mingle, drink, make friends and meet other couples

Are gay couples welcome? And what time does it start or is this a private event?

Re: Mingle, drink, make friends and meet other couples

Do we need to bring car keys?

Will Mobility keys do?

Gay couples welcome.
Car Keys optional :-)

PM me for all details and then I can put you on the list. We just need to keep control of numbers as we have booked an area of a certain size.

You asked it in a much more subtle way than what was going through my head when I first saw this thread. This being Switzerland, I am wondering if GAs and rail passes are used instead.

I wonder who's bringing the big bowl to put them in...

Jokes aside, the title does sound a bit like a swingers event, which is fine by me but if it is, I would be clear about it, if it isn't, the same applies...

I do see your point, however, at the risk of dissapointing people, this is not a swingers event......

Re: Mingle, drink, make friends and meet other couples

So just to clarify further.....

Reason for the event is that most events in Zurich seemed to be aimed at the single person. Nothing wrong with that, and was much amusement to watch when first arrived but now me and the wife thought it would be good to do something for couples.

NOT Swingers !!

Anyhow, the event is also on another site, which I'm guessing I probably cant mention, we have about 10 couples confirmed now.

PM me for all details, I'll let you know start time, who we are where we'll be etc.

(leave your car keys at home, that was a joke b4!)

Re: Mingle, drink, make friends and meet other couples

to be fair, if it was a aswingers event, it would be silly to go by yourself...

I mean you can't do cool stuff like this vvv

You mean before we go on our romantic weekend? That reminds me, I need to make sure they give us a king size bed in case we do find something suitable at the bar.

Ok, let's not derail the topic further, sorry Paul!

If you're on your own, honey, we could team up.

They never need know who we are. Don't forget your sarong!

Even if you pluck up the courage to go on your own, you can ask everyone in the room to Lindyhop if you want!

unless you quickly couple-up with another single (of the opposite gender, as already clarified above) before Paul takes the roll-call..

Re: Mingle, drink, make friends and meet other couples

Why would you want to come if you were single anyway ? I mean I like an event as much as the next person, but I wouldnt turn up to a chicken eating contest if I didnt eat chicken.

And yes I probably would turn people away who werent in couples (depending how big they were!!) We have a limited area available and demand has been strong !!

Right....





RSVP'd Maybe: 4 (3 members and 1 guests) Pepole are just making fun of it because it's discriminating on "a couples only" Basis; Just that .
Usually in singles events couples could fake their singledom and go.. but singles would have to prearrange their couple-hood(not that I would mind to do so with Begga, J.L-P or Kittster; Individually or all grouped up... your choice ladies )
It is very interesting to know that the appropriate analogy for a couple's event is a chicken eating contest...
