City/Town: Neuchâtel
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Will accept suggestions!

Ok, so it seems like it's been ages since we did one of these. Every time I've met up with people recently, it's only been one or two, and I'd like a nice, big get-together like we've had before. I didn't really have a venue in mind. Maybe some people want to go for dinner, others just drinks, but I thought I'd throw it out there. I chose this date because it's the only time I'm free in the immediate future, but if there's a date when more people are free then feel free to change it! Who would be interested?
RSVP'd Yes: 4 (3 members and 1 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 10 (6 members and 4 guests)
  • Millso - Depends if im working and if my girlfriend will let me :p
  • Belgianmum + 2 guests - If we don't go away for the long weekend.
  • AEventually - Hello there, I have just joined this forum after hearing about it months ago from some people I met in a bar in Neuchatel, who overheard my English accent, and therefore presumed I was in the bar for the proposed meet. I thought it could be interes...
  • Kristanez + 1 guest - we'll be there (and happy to meet everyone) if we can get enough studying done in the meantime and the plan is affordable enough for our teeny tiny budget. Maybe a picnic by the lake?
  • stephen_NE - If it does turn out to be a BBQ at St-Blaise and if oldies are accepted I might just come - would be nice to meet up :-)
  • bugheart + 1 guest - not sure i can make a bbq but an evening dinner would be nice...
RSVP'd No: 2
  • Metallising
  • wendyD - A shame as I would have liked to discover the Neuchâtel crowd, but am off on holiday at 4am the next day. Hope there'll be another occasion

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

Great idea! Were you thinking more night or day time?
If day and it's nice... by the lakeside? BBQ and BYOB?

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

I didn't have anything specific in mind. As I say, I'll take suggestions! BBQ could indeed be an option... Mmmm... BBQ...

Only problem being that shes a french speaker and her level of english is fairly basic. On top of that, she refuses to speak english to me as she is sure that I'll make fun of her accent (though she will happily talk to anyone else in english if she needs to, double standards or what )

Might suggest a nice trip to Neuchatel where I (shock horror) run into some EF members

Might be worth looking into whether you're allowed to at the moment. I think with the recent dry weather they have banned BBQ's for the moment.

Millso there are loads of us who speak pretty good French too so don't let your girlfriend be put off. We don't bite honest.

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

I second what Belgianmum said. I'll speak to her in French if that makes her more comfortable.

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

Apologies for writing an essay in the response bit above. I still clearly have no idea on how this forum actually works and was therefore cut off mid-response above. Anyway, any ideas of where you will actually be going?

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

Not yet, am happy to go anywhere (except the Taverne Neuchâteloise... they're a bunch of rude bastards in there). I was kind of hoping some suggestions would be proposed... so far we've only had "BBQ" - and that might not even be allowed!

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

I suppose it depends whether or not its at night or in the day. I quite regularly go to Cafe du Cerf with friends from work, and I find that quite a friendly place. There are also quite a few other English speaking people who already go there.

Or maybe l'etage? Apologies, I am rubbish at suggestions. And my knowledge is not the best.

If people are looking for food and drinks there is always Salt & Pepper?

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

I won't be able this time.

I see there is a new member from La Chaux de Fonds! I'm not alone here anymore!

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

AEventually- That's cool you joined the forum, I remember that in the Cerf.

Agree with Metallising above - nice to see more people from La Chaux-de-Fonds... we definately should do something there again one time!

BBQs are allowed - it's by a lake!

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

It looks like a picnic/BBQ by the lake is a popular choice! How about in St. Blaise?

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

Ok, so I propose we meet at 1pm at the picnic area in St Blaise right near the St Blaise lac train station (on the bus it's the train station stop, just before St Blaise). We can then discuss what we'd like to do in the evening. If anyone doesn't know how to get there, PM me and maybe we can arrange to meet in town and go together. For anyone who isn't free during the day but would like to meet up in the evening, PM me so I can contact you on the day. Hope to see you soon!

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

No - boo! Forecast for rain! Fingers crossed it changes, but if it does rain, maybe we could go to La Trattoria du Soleil (near Place des Halles) as it's relatively reasonably priced and the portions are so massive you don't need a starter or anything (for those on a budget).

Re: Neuchâtel get-together

Weather looks like it'll be rainy and cold on Saturday
I don't think I'll be coming in that case as my little one's not going to be quiet and content sitting in her pushchair in a cafe with no room to explore....!
Have a great time all, hope to see you another time! xx
