01.07.2011 18:30 to 22:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Solothurn
Event Type: Coffee/Chat
Meeting Point: Solheure

This meetup is for anyone who wants to join us, it was initially for some of us new movers to Solothurn to meet some people and lean a bit about the area. You can have drinks, coffee, meal, or just hang out. Whoever gets there first will grab a table and we'll tell the staff to call it the "EF meetup" so that the rest of us can find it.

Like to restaurant/bar: http://www.solheure.ch/

This is my first time setting up an event on here and I'll have only been in Switzerland for about a week at that time so if I'm missing anything please let me know.

EDIT: I hope I got the time right in here, I want it to say 19:30-23:30.

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

As it's a relatively small place, perhaps it's easier to simply write EF on a half-folded sheet of paper and place it on the table, and avoid having to ask at the bar. Also, most of the parking surrounding the Altstadt is free after 7 pm, though it's sometimes harder to find a spot closer to the river.

Looking forward to meeting some neighbors this evening.

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

At that time of the evening, I highly doubt you will be able to get a table, although it is worth a try. Sometimes it happens. If not we can always perch on the wall outside with a drink and natter, the weather is quite nice today, so it should hold out will this evening hopefully! See you all later.

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

ok if we can get a table someone write EF on a napkin or something. Otherwise it should be easy to spot me, Ill be the confused guy wearing a blue button up long sleeve shirt.

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

I quite enjoyed it myself, and look forward to the next one. Maybe we can make it a regular meet-up.

It was nice to meet you all.

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

Seems like all is quiet in Solothurn during the summer. After work drinks or some other ideas?

Re: Solothurn Social meetup

I lied... There's an open air Summer-nights-fest down on the river on Saturday, July 30th, starting at 6:00 pm with live music until 11:00 and then a night club open until 3:00 am for the kids. That's well past my bedtime! I won't know until the week before whether I'm working that night or not, but if others want to go, it may be worth checking out.

The translation:

On the open-air stage playing the Solothurn and the rock band Slimdolls
Rezia cool funk band and the Be Sharps, ranging from Jamiroquai Lenny Kravitz
Michael Jackson has something for almost everyone on the set list. After the
Concerts, from about 23 at night until about 3 clock clock: disco in the cross hall.

Guess I'll create the event. Where and when should we meet? I'll toss out the Solheure at 19:30?
