Help Needed - join me for curry and / or beer ?

I'm now in Geneva since late Feb 2011, I'm desperate for a beer/curry with anyone who is a native english speaker! FFS I'll even pay!

I just want to get to know other native english speakers, we are a family who moved over in Feb and are now fully established with work in Geneva.

I'd live to meet nice people and have beer / glass of wine and stuf - whilst still keeping my sanity and not getting pissed off about no next day delivery and no amazon and generally being in 1970 when in fact it is 2011!!!!!!!

rant over!

Hey there, I concur, make an event, and since they are far and apart in our area I am sure people will show up.

I saw your older posts, you have little kids, I have a 4yr old, so if you feel like a hang out with kids and all, we would come (park Bastion to play giant chess, or so..).

Tanks, I'll try and sort something out, bit busy today as I've got to look after the little ones, tossed a coin to see who was working today and the wife won!

What I'd give to be a work! Daughter has a play date this afternoon, so that'll be Disney fing princess whilst son just wants to play wii....

Oh the joy of parenthood!

LOL! I'm having a fabulous day so far, my Daughter even managed to get dressed without me having to ask! I'm now hiding in the basement as the two of them are playing wii (happily I may add), but if I go upstairs I'll be risking life and limb, two children running around playing wii, 2 cats trying to avoid said two children, on tiled floors....... Incomming!!!

Re: Help Needed - join me for curry and / or beer ?

I'd be keen especially if it is curry, even though from Zurich!

Fridays and Mondays work out best for me.

Yeah me too from Zurich! A Friday or Saturday works best for me.

I hear ya on the time warp front but you get used to it. Eventually.

Currently, I'm digging wearing flared jeans again without being laughed at!

Re: Help Needed - join me for curry and / or beer ?

I'll ask around to see where a good curry place is and get back to you. Those dates are ok with me. I know that there are some places that do a good buffet for around 30-35 per head all you can eat. Just can't remember the name...

1st July is not possible for me whereas the 8th is fine. Set up a Doodle Poll perhaps once the location and time has been first determined ?

Why would you need one of these for a curry?

Re: Help Needed - join me for curry and / or beer ?

Gordon Bennet, I need to be on my toes, what with getting my plates of meat under the dear old aunt at Kirks, I'd completely forgotten this original post!

Now I've never done this internet meeting up with a bunch of strangers, so be kind, I'll try and set up a thingy if anyone has a good idea re place and times.

I've got two young kids so need to be back early ish so as I'm able to function properly in the morning!

Re: Help Needed - join me for curry and / or beer ?

I am just bumping this to show those Zurich folks that we can have fun in Geneva. It may take some organising but shall be done, eventually.

I have a wee problem with the 8th, Swisscom are coming to install their superdooper TV, internet etc.

But, this may interest Gata and any other Geneva residents. This weekend is the Street Party in St. Jean. The weather is supposed to be good, food, drink, music etc.

Perhaps we could have an afternoon meet up- kids and dogs included!!! I suggest the Tiki Bar - which is right in the middle of the fiesta. Just shout out Pats and i shall reply!!!

Please get back to me. I think this is a good way to meet up. Get the number 7 or 27 up from the train station.
