21.05.2011 20:00 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich/Adliswil
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Pot Belly's, Soodring 21 (8134)

UPDATE ON PAGE 2 IN RED!!

Similar to Friday Night Drinks, but with pool happening in the background---and again on a SATURDAY (gasp!). Oh, and this time, with a change of scenery!

We play, we drink, we just want to have fun! As always, come if you want to play, if you want to drink, if you want to meet new people, and/or if you are just interested in seeing what it is all about. It is usually a great crowd and all are welcome.

NEW location:
Pot Belly's
Soodring 21
8134 Adliswil, Switzerland
044 709 08 48
http://www.potbellys.ch/

I know, I know, why change the location, you ask?! Well, this bar kind of caters to expats. So we are getting a bit of a deal on the greens fees. Plus, the beer selection is better, the food is quite good, and really, the commute isn't much different. The bar is located literally up the stairs at the Sood-Oberleimbach stop off the S4 train about 10 minutes from Zurich main station. The SN4 runs just like all the other nach trains for us late/all nighters. And at a certain point, a change of venue is good to try out... My thought is, if you guys come out for a good time, the venue doesn't matter!

Any other questions can be pm'ed to me or asked below. I will give a final update on the day of the event with my clothing selection.

Looking forward to (hopefully) a great turnout!

I could bend the truth a little and speak glowingly of you, but as for letting you win at Pool, won't that look a little obvious ?

Re: Social Pool Night

As seeingbee mentioned, if you only have a zone 10 pass, you need to extend one zone to make it out to Sood-Oberleimbach... I hope this doesn't deter too many of you. I might be persuaded to buy you a beer if it does.

How many beers do you pay me if I don't have a zone 10 pass either?

Re: Social Pool Night

On the way home we could have a piggy back race into zone 10... I need to get CJ in shape for the wedding...and it would save money.

Re: Social Pool Night

DAY OF THE EVENT UPDATE:

Looks like we are going to have a nice crowd out! I should be getting there around 19.30 to make sure things are in order for the night. The pool tables are in the back of the restaurant and if you ask at the bar for EF/Julie, I am sure they will point you in the right direction. Also, the place isn't all that big, so you may not have to ask.

I will be wearing dark gray pants and a navy blue t-shirt with the superman (S) logo on the front. I am about 5'4'', medium build with reddish-brown hair, most likely straight and pulled back tonight. Any questions or concerns, pm me or post here.

LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT NIGHT!

When you say reddish-brown, is it on the red side of brown or the brown side of red?

Re: Social Pool Night

I love Pot Bellies. I could get fat on those fries! As usual it was a great night. The place doesn't matter with folk like that!
I did ok, won some and lost some. I did beat Swissmiss by one ball ...... but she played with one hand so I can't really brag too much about that one.
Are we doing it again soon?
Thanks J's.

Re: Social Pool Night

Thanks all for coming out! Can't beat playing a night of pool for only 10CHFs each... Yes, you read that right. Pot Belly's has a special on Saturdays to play for 35CHF/table, all you can play. So we will definitely go back on a Saturday.

Great crowd as usual. I'll organize another one in June or early July.
