11.09.2011 15:00 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Adliswil (Zurich)
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Pot Belly's, Soodring 21

PLEASE READ THIS POST. PLEASE READ THIS POST. UPDATE!!!

Come one, come all...The proper Sunday roast is on. And the pool is free.

The doors will open at 15.00 for us and the buffet will start between 15.30 and 16.00. It will be all-you-can-eat and last until 20.00. The bar will stay open (still with free pool) until around 00.00.

Menu (there will be, at a minimum, the following):
Roast Beef and (UPDATE) Roast Pork
Roast Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
3 kinds of Veggies
Yorkshire Puddings
Gravy
Dessert: Apple Pie and Cream
Drinks are *not* included

Price: Between 45-60CHF (depending on the number of confirmed attendees). 50CHF deposit per person to me by SEPT 1 to guarantee your spot(s). If we have enough attendees at that time, I can still collect money and take more names until 5 days before the event.

Kids 12 and under: 25CHF---the venue also has a little play area for them

Location:
Pot Belly's
Soodring 21
8134 Adliswil
http://www.potbellys.ch/

It is a short 14 minute ride on the S4 from the Zurich main station (you do need a zone extension). Trains run every 20 minutes off track 1, and Pot Belly's is literally above the Sood-Oberleimbach stop. There is some parking available nearby as well.

Any questions, let me know.

Please read the thread for updates...so far there has been three or four!


Also, please RSVP separating your adult guests from your children guests. Thanks in advance.

Re: All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Roast

I haven't gotten a hold of the owner yet. He wasn't working today, so I will try again tomorrow. The final numbers I have are:
25 confirmed (ie-paid) adults
3 maybe (paid) adults
4 kids

I would say we are 95% yes. Will confirm 100% as soon as I can but I think it is safe to plan on it.

Oh, and I will remove the names of people that have not paid for the final list... You will only get in the door on Sunday if you are on my list. Thanks all for the interest!!

Re: All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Roast

FINAL EVENT UPDATE:

WE ARE A GO!! I REPEAT, THE EVENT IS A GO!!

Because of the smaller numbers, the actual cost of the roast will be 59.50CHF for adults and 25CHF for kids. Everyone will owe another 9.50 on the day of the event which will be added to your bill with your drinks.

AND GOOD NEWS FOR MY "LATECOMERS":
IF you are still interested in joining us next Sunday, you have two options:
1. PM me and I will send you my address. You can post me your deposit (50CHF) by registered, A post so that I receive it by Thursday at 17.00.
2. PM me with your name, phone number, address, and number of adult/children attendees. You will then pay everything on the day of the event. If you "sign up" this way, your information will be given to the owner. Food will be made for you/your guests. If you do not show up, YOU WILL BE BILLED. full stop. YOU MUST DO THIS BY THURSDAY at 17.00 to be on the list. Food will only be made for the people on my list on THURSDAY at 17.00.

Hope this makes everyone happy. Any questions/concerns/whatever, let me know. Looking forward to it!

I know it might be a bit late to mention it, but it would be great if there was horseradish.
