Friday May 20th TGIF is going to Bar Rouge!

I'll try to sit the group somewhere easy to find. I have red hair (but it's not Ronald McDonald red okay ; ), so look for someone with a natural red colored hair...

Re: Thank Goodness It's Friday in Basel

Hiya, I will probably be there - are you really starting at 6.30? I'm unlikely to make it that early, but just in case by some miracle I get out of the door in time I'll be coming alone and don't want to be Billy-No-Mates until everyone else turns up

Re: Thank Goodness It's Friday in Basel

Well, we arrived and we both asked anyone with red or brown hair, whether they were Suzele from the English Forum. I only got quizzical looks.

Not serious, we enjoyed our drinks the view, but I did promise my friend she'd meet new people.

Is there perhaps a better way of identifying you for next time?

Yeah we were there too, but didn't find the red-hair lady...
A bit disappointed without meeting any new friends...

Re: Thank Goodness It's Friday in Basel

Sorry you couldn't find us...

We had about 20 people total by the end of the night. Really great time. I arrived at 6:30pm and sat at the VERY first chair near the door at the bar and watched every person who walked in the door for at least 2 hours.

Afterwards we moved to a few couches that were free and had quite a big group of English speaking people sitting on the first two sets of couches.

I can't imagine how anyone could possibly have missed us from 6:30pm to 8pmish...

When the disco lights went on, it could easily happen!

We actually had a discussion about how to make it easier for people to find us and I've decided to wear my Centrepoint name badge and carry a cheap plastic white/pink flower that I got at Fasnacht around all night.

I seriously doubt anyone else will dare do anything so tacky, so hopefully next time you can find us...

Re: Thank Goodness It's Friday in Basel

We came at around 7pm and I saw the group of people in the first corner. I asked the person with reddish-brown hair if anyone here was called Suzele, but although the person (and others) looked up at me and smiled, nobody replied so I assumed they couldn't understand English.

Re: Thank Goodness It's Friday in Basel

I think you have to buy a lot of alcohol to reserve that sitting area at Bar Rouge. It turns out it was some sort of party.

I was at the bar...

Sorry I didn't spot you. I was looking fervently for anyone who seemed a little lost.

In any case next time you will find me when you find the cheap plastic flower! And my name's Suzanne. Suzele is my nickname in Baseldeutsch/Alsatian.
