City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Mr. Pickwick Basel Steinenvorstadt 13

Hello everybody!
I am a rather new member and I have been waiting impatiantly for the one-week period to pass before being able to create this event... I have to confess I owe the creation of this event to a few helpful more senior EFers who explained me patiently how and walked me through the process. Thanks to Foxinthesnow, JustRose and MusicChick. But without further adooooo...

As I will be moving to Basel permanently for my new job at the end of August, I have arranged a small Orientation Tour of the city this coming week from the 20th to the 23rd of July in order to get a feel for the city and its people. Of course such an Orientation Tour would be disappointingly uncomplete without meeting some expats already living there and without going out on a Friday night...

I hope to meet some of the more curious, dynamic, kind and entrepreuneurial expats that could welcome me, orientate me and help me knock down a few pints We can meet up at Pickwicks at 9pm on Friday 22nd of July and then take it from there.

If you would like to know a little bit more about me, feel free to read my introduction post, it should cover most of the info:Moving to Basel

I would be pleased to meet and great all of you!
Looking forward to next friday...

Re: Orientate me!

OP, you should send a PM to all the folks who responded, with your contact details and decide a place to meet up.

Helps to avoid confusion, especially on a Friday evening with a couple of pints already in the system.

Sending PMs with contact details...

Look for the guy with glasses in a suit, looking totally not-swiss, near the bar in Pickwicks at 9pm Friday 22nd of July. Can't get much more specific than this

Re: Orientate me!

Thanks KEP

I will be there - and wearing a blue t-shirt, black jacket and the usual perplexed look on my face. So if others get there before KEP, you know who to look out for...
oh, and my real name is Craig - just so nobody asks a random stranger "hey, are you foxinthesnow?"

I can show you a picture of me, from a few years ago. I've changed a bit though...

Re: Orientate me!

Hello To All who joined that night. It was my first EF event and i am glad i was there. Made some friends and good conversation, and intensive fussball games. I was the one with the blue shirt and glasses

Kep, So sorry we could not show you into the Paddys as part of your induction. We were shouting for you but it was too crowded. We did not stay long though. May be next time when you are back. Hope you had fun and like Basel a bit more than you used to . And Thanks for hosting the event mate !!

Craig, Batoz, Karol,Ladies. Very Nice to meet all of you! Looking forward for some more events and adventures

Re: Orientate me!

oh what a night, lalalalala.... Great night and nice to meet the newbies. Hope you guys had fun. Sorry to Karol and KEP for missing Paddy's but really, you didn't miss much. It was a terrible night there (just too crowded)! We left pretty quickly. See you about soon!

Re: Orientate me!

I have to say I was impressed by the number of people I met, and a bit overwhelmed too... Sorry guys and girls, I won't be remembering all your names, I will need to organize another event and give name tags and stickers to everyone...

It was a great night, I ended up walking home at 3pm under the clouds and the small rain, happy and satisfied with my future environment. Next time, I demand to see Paddys (and not so crowded please) and I will be dressed casual so that I can pour drinks on myself shamelessly if I ever get drunk enough!

Cant' wait to see you again and meet more funky expats!!!
