*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.
RSVP'd Yes: 12 (8 members and 4 guests)

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

If there are people interested in dinner or something before hand, just post here. That way people can organize themselves if they want.

Often people go to Ah Hua before hand, but since there's a load restaurants in the area, even in the Volkshaus itself.

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

If I reserve at Ah Hua for six to eight people at 19.00, do I have any takers?

Let me know end of the day today, latest, so that I can call. It is a very busy place...

Reservation made for 8 people at 19.00 under a very strange name (that I will pm to you all later). I have five takers so far--those listed above +me and my OH. Then I have one spot semi-reserved for ibdebs if she gets back to me.

If I don't have two more people confirm by tomorrow evening, I will call back and change the reservation to the number we do have confirmed. Again, they get very busy and it is only fair to the restaurant to do it this way...

Looking forward to seeing you all!

If Treverus isn't too annoying, I will join for dinner.

In and in. Since that leaves only one spot open, I will leave it for crfesi just in case s(he) decides to join us. If there is someone else though, please let me know.

And the name really isn't that interesting, I promise. Will pm you with it tomorrow once I have everyone.

... and there I was hoping that we would all ask the waitress for the table reserved for Professor Taratonga.

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

Looks like we have a good crew coming tomorrow.

I'll update tomorrow with my outfit (I'm 95% sure what I'm going to wear, but just in case I change my mind).

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

I'm gonna be late, due to work which finishes at 18.30. I'll, hopefully, make it around 7.15 plus/minus. Please don't eat all the duck!

Do you want me to order the soup for you if we are ready and you still aren't there?

Re: Friday Night Drinks @ the Volkshaus

I'll be found wearing a red floral dress with a little black jacket. My hair is currently reddish brown, and I'm of average height.

See y'all tonight.
