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!

Well, lets be clear--these are international rules not "amer-can" rules. And if you really want, we can set up an "english" rules table. I would really like to 9-ball too if anyone is interested...

For 35CHFs/table/night, we can do anything we like. We just need the people.

Ok, one thing we do not do is put the white ball anywhere.

It's a well known fact that we never spill our beer.

Hey now German...we drink beer all the time. I don't vouch for its "goodness", but it is beer nonetheless.

Define beer. Any bottle that includes the word "light" or "lite" are disqualified from the start.

Budweiser? Blue Moon? Newcastle? Kilkenny? Guinness? Old Rasputin? Smithwicks? Sierra Nevada Pale Ale? Sam Adams? Three Floyds IPA? Dogfish Head 90min IPA?

(yes, I know my beers...and you didn't say whether it had to be American brewing companies but that is why I started with Bud, even though I won't touch the stuff)...

IPAs can be really nice...maybe you just haven't had a good one?
