31.05.2011 to 01.06.2011 20:00 to 00:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Viadukt Market Halle

What better reason do we need to have a get together than one of our out of town EF friends visiting Zurich.

Gata will be in town for one night only! So let's give her our best Zurich welcome, which of course involves alcohol and cheese.

Meeting point is The British Cheese Centre in the Market Halle, Im Viadukt at 7pm. Grumpy will tempt us with his delights as we meet up and then make our way to the capable hands of Anna at the bar.

Hope to see you all there.

Directions link attached, just in case you haven't been as yet http://www.im-viadukt.ch/content/anreise

I am sure you will give Gata a great welcome to Zurich. She, and other EF members, were very welcoming on my recent visit to the Geneva area.

I wish I was there to return the welcome.

I am a completely different person when I put my Leotard on...

Think Dirty Dancing, Flash Dance and Rambo.

What all mixed together? Nobody could possibly put you in a corner, although if you don't behave you will go in the naughty corner and be made to drink tap water. There will also be no cheese, pies or habanero sauce for you

Re: Gata Is Coming To Town - Evening Drinks

I'm looking forward to meeting gata again and am preparing some cheese and chutney plates right now. I also have some Sudwerk American Pale and Golden Ale in the fridge, although I've started early with a delicious German Riesling from the Oyster bar .

Re: Gata Is Coming To Town - Evening Drinks

Yay!!! So I finally got to meet Gata and her lovely beau, Simon. You guys totally rock!!! Gata, that joke you told us girlies has still got me laughing even now.

Also great to see Grumpy again and enjoy a very tasty cheddar cheese and pickle roll on the house. Thanks GGF for that. I sooooo needed that fix and have to come back to the Viadukt Markthalle real soon for some more of your delish Stilton, bacon and sausages.

Had tons of fun and laughs with Gata, Simon, the inimitable UTH and my lovely ladies, CJ and JustSquirrel at the pool place. Cool Hand Luke ain't got nothing on me eh?!! Yeah, right!!!

BIG thanks to Mr 'n' Mrs UTH for recommending the totally to-die-for Chicken Pepito kebab on the way home. Um, it was sooooooo yummie and for sure I'll be partaking of more of those in the future.

All in all, a great, great night!

Cheers y'all.

Re: Gata Is Coming To Town - Evening Drinks

Well that was definitely a fun evening! Lovely to meet you both and hope it happens again. You never know we may invade Geneva for a return match .

Grumpy the cheese and chutney was as delicious as ever and have a feeling I may be down with my trolley for some of the new beet UTH tried and rather liked.

I still say it was most definately a donut!!!!!!!! And as for the tartar.........well........

I am so sorry I couldn't make it last night.

I'm at least glad to hear that it was a great evening.

Re: Gata Is Coming To Town - Evening Drinks

A fun evening it was indeedy, was great to meet Gata and finance, I looked into your query but seems 170k just wouldn't be enough to relocate to Zurich. Still laughing from the pool, apologies to UptheHatters for being such a disability Thanks everyone for all the giggles

Looks like I missed quite a night as I ran off in the rain for my tram! Nice to meet you all and the happy couple again this morning as they stocked up on cheese
