*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!

Re: All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Roast (UPDATED!!)

Thank you for organising, and pass on my compliments to all the staff, especially the chef.

The food was lovely and even my old dead gran would have been pleased with those roasties and yorkies.

And that horseradish was definitely better than the jar of Coleman's which was on hand in case of emergency.

I liked the place too. Why can't it be in Basel?

Re: All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Roast (UPDATED!!)

Hi, just wanted to post a belated thanks for Sunday, it was marvellous and we would come again. Unfortunately I couldn't get to speak to many of you due to my permanent state of stress looking after the little monsters.

Re: All-You-Can-Eat Sunday Roast (UPDATED!!)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!

The follow-up Sunday Roast is tentatively scheduled for 20.November... Details (and thread) to follow. If you have suggestions I have not yet heard, you are welcome to voice them...preferably on the other thread.

It would be after this one (if again successful) that the restaurant will organize a regularly-occurring, once a month, roasts.

At this point, mods, please close this thread. Thanks.
