02.07.2011 20:00 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Adliswil (Zurich)
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Pot Belly's, Soodring 21

Similar to Friday Night Drinks, but with pool happening in the background---oh, and on a SATURDAY... UPDATE IN BLUE--PAGE 2

We play, we drink, we just want to have fun! As always, come if you want to play, if you want to drink, if you want to meet new people, and/or if you are just interested in seeing what it is all about. It is usually a great crowd and all are welcome.

NEW location:
Pot Belly's
Soodring 21
8134 Adliswil, Switzerland
044 709 08 48
http://www.potbellys.ch/

This place is getting rave reviews from my pool league guys. It is a very comfortable venue with great beer on tap and pub food to boot! Plus, they have nice seating outside for those who would like to focus more on the drinking/eating rather than on the playing. The staff is very friendly and treats us well... Oh, and did I mention that the price of a table is 35CHF/night (instead of ~24/hour)? This is their summer special, and it happens every Saturday night. So that means each of us pays around 10CHF (depending on the turnout) to play for the whole evening! So even if you aren't good at pool or have never played, you can't beat 10CHF to try it out... Again, my theory is: if good people come out, the venue doesn't matter!

Any other questions can be pm'ed to me or asked below. I will give a final update on the day of the event with my clothing selection.

Looking forward to (hopefully) another great turnout!

Anyone else coming out? Where are some of my regulars?
To be honest: There will be the biggest fight of the year on Saturday (Klitschko vs. Haye fighting for the quadruple heavy weight worldchampionship...).

Does Potbelly's have TVs? I didn't care last time... it's on free TV (RTL, I believe)

They have TV's , close to the tables... Not the biggest, but enough to step away from the table and gawk at for a while.

They have a *huge* projection screen along with many other flat screens... And I am sure it will be on, especially if it is as big as you say it is.

Of course you did! ha!

Anyway, morning of the event update:

We should have five or so tables in the back of the pool hall. So when you walk in, and straight back into the pool room, the first row of tables (right side) should be ours. I haven't decided on clothing, and since it doesn't seem to be as hot a topic as before, just look for a girl who is about 5'4'', medium-build, dark reddish-brown hair (up and swept off the face) who answers to the name Julie. It will be between around 10 francs to play for the night (if we get the number of yes's listed on the event). Because the price is set, please be ready to give me the money when you walk in. If you owe me or I owe you at the end of the night, then we can sort it out as you are leaving.
Thanks! And looking forward to a great night.

Re: Social Pool Night!

As a note to everyone coming tonight-

We considered canceling this event because of the tragic news of Begga's passing. Since many of those in Zurich who loved Begga dearly had planned on attending, we decided not to. We will celebrate Begs tonight. We will drink to the wonderful, spirited life she led. We will remember her...

For those of you attending that didn't know her, don't worry. This will be done on the sidelines. All are still welcome tonight.

Agreed. Best to get out there and have a great time dedicated to her memory.

I got things mixed up and forgot it was tonight. I can't make it now and am quite Jipped as I had a really good time. I will come to the next one before I leave.

Have a great night peeps and I will drink a toast tonight to Begga without fail.

While I didn't know Begga too well - only from a handfull of EF events - I think it is safe to say that she would not want us to cancel drinks but rather meet and remember her.

Yeah Dreamcat - you did a pretty good superman impersonation when swinging from those chandeliers.

Nice to meet some new faces, and put other faces to the avatars.

J&N&co thanks again for a great night. Very good to be with people in similar states of mind in light of recent events. Bonding.

Again a wake up call not to take things for granted - value the moments, treasure your friends. Plan for tomorrow, but Live today.

Kia kaha tamariki ma.
E te Ariki, Whakarongo mai ra ki a matou.*



Oh, Debs sweetie? You can have your friggin hangover back(!!)

*Maori is a soul-language and culture. You are allowed to wail and cry and show the power of all your emotions (for those who know the "rugby" Haka), so much more decent, honest that English.

Re: Social Pool Night!

Hey Ranga, it wasn't my hangover to begin with, it just seems to be making the rounds with all the pretty girls!

Thanks J. It was great to have everyone around me last night.

Re: Social Pool Night!

Thank you all for coming out! Really, really had a great time and as Ranga said, being around people in a similar state of mind really helped me.

Will do it again soon.

I suppose next Fri or Sat would be the last. Should have asked sooner
