Re: "Proper" Sunday Roast--Gauging Interest

I would have thought with all the expats in Zurich, especially from the UK, that there would be more interest in a Sunday roast. Does nobody eat anymore?

I hope it's a great success and repeated so we can come to the next (we can't come in September) :-(

Re: "Proper" Sunday Roast--Gauging Interest

Cant do September, but Oct is looking more promising and might be interested then...

BTW, isnt this just a watered down version of a Brasilian Churscoa?

Re: "Proper" Sunday Roast--Gauging Interest

Ah, didn't realise you could vote for more than one thing at a time... 1st date better for me but can't commit till a bit closer to the date. It's a great idea, worth coming over from Basel for - the only time I get a roast dinner is when I'm back in the UK. Would prefer beef to pork, for a couple of reasons. Pool is a total bonus, I love playing pool!

Re: "Proper" Sunday Roast--Gauging Interest

You had me at drippings... count me in! Beef or pork, not fussed, 1st weekend in September better for me but could do the second as well...

Ermm, do you mean a churrasco? In which case, no, not at all the two things are completely different. I am less familiar with the Sunday roast concept, but the very fact the word 'roast' is in the name... Churrasco is a strictly wood fire/charcoal grill affair. Each has its place in this wonderfully meaty world.

[p.s.: Hey, Lou, is it ok if some of us opt for a glass of Talisker and some knitting?]

Economisto, why you groaning? It is a legitimate question and better than just posting "bump"...

And thanks again everyone for all the feedback. It is definitely going to happen. Event to be posted early August giving everyone a month or so to make up his/her respective mind and after I discuss these results with the owner (to finalize menu, etc). Drooling in anticipation is necessary, no?

Already looking forward to it! Something I loved during my Erasmus was the National Sunday meals: we organize ourselves so that we got to eat tasty specialities from each country that was sharing Erasmus that year.

I hope English roast potatos are not like the X-Mas special my Danish friends made me: they were so beautiful and golden, I gulped them, only to find out too late they were sugar glazed.

How are you counting on collecting the money, btw, if you already have an idea?

Well, preferably in person... Or maybe I will have to set up an account or something. The idea was to meet up for drinks at the Viadukt or the main station in Zurich a couple days during the week (two weeks before) and collect the money. Obviously knowing not everyone could make it, this would be dealt with as necessary. I don't want "not getting me the money" to be the reason people don't make it or the event doesn't happen. So I would be as available as necessary.

Yes, I am relatively certain this will be a kid-friendly event (I personally have no problems with kids being there). It is a restaurant that normally allows kids in... In reality, I am hoping it will be really laid-back and similar in feel to the Ploughman's lunches.

I will ask the owner about reduced kids prices for the meal though. I would think it is reasonable to assume something like this could (should?) happen.

Is that a Sunday? If so I know three Baslers who will be in attendance, especially after tasting the fare last time. Nom nom yummy!

I am supposed to organize it again for the EF. I have just been out of town and there are a few logistical things to work out with the owner.

I am planning on setting up a direct deposit into an account (through IBAN or whatever) for everyone to make their "deposit" so it should be more straightforward this time. Will stop by and chat with him later this week so I can follow up and post it as an event...

Okay, I'll wait a bit before deleting my EF account. Looking forward to it.

Cheers,
