*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Volkshaus

It's been a while since we've enjoyed the great atmosphere of the Volkshaus, so I thought it might be time again. And it might possibly rain, so it's nice to have a location that can handle us if it rains.

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 2000.

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.

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

Ah Hua tends to be very efficient and is essentially next door. I expect to be there at 8pm.

Plus, they (meaning Ah-Hua) said we could only be there until 8.30 latest. So that means that we should be to the Volkshaus probably 8.15 or so (if not on time). Most of us have been before and know what we want to eat, so ordering is easy.

Yes. Seriously. I have no idea who to accost. There are so many English speaking people here.
