*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Talacker Bar, Talacker 41, Zurich

All welcome! Come and meet the faces behind the names- enjoy a few drinks and make new acquaintances!

To find the Talacker : http://map.search.ch/zuerich/talacker-41

It's around the corner from Paddy Reilly's; staggering distance from Stauffacher, Paradeplatz, Bahnhofstrasse and er, Kaufleuten.

Trams 2 / 9 to Sihlstrasse.

There'll be an area reserved for us. If in doubt, ask the staff where the English Forum area is and you'll be fine: they all speak English. We're usually in the far back corner under the Doggy murals and useless Disco lights.

There are often many of us in the bar and we're all English speakers, so you'll have no difficulty finding us.

Most people come alone, so don't be shy of approaching! Many friendships and babies (!) have been created from an initial step in the door, so log off and come in for some face to face conversation Most of us are a lot more attractive in the flesh...

See you there from 19:00!

Bar telephone: 044 211 2050

Welcome to the Talacker, where beer quality comes second to having a good time. This be no 'expat' bar duckie and I can assure you you won't worry about the beer until three seconds after tomorrow morning's alarm rings.

The rioja's rather good.
So good I have tomorrow off

How is Singa, got your hearing back after the GP?
Let me put it this way: I took out the ear plugs after the race to be able to hear the linkin park concert at all. They really sound tame compared to those machines!

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

It is and it isn't a good way to make new friends: the problem is not having a good time with new faces - you certainly will if you arrive with a smile and perhaps a pitcher of beer - but the next morning trying to remember who said what, who was who and does anyone have any paracetamol as I've a stinking hangover...
On the plus side can you make the same new friends multiple times at the Talacker - there is a certain forum user who has introduced himself no less than eight times to me over the years...

If the nut-job owner has checked out, then surely black lesbian jews like me are welcome.

Bollocks I was with the wrong group all night then!

Great night. Thank you sooooo much to uncle max for re-ignigting this institution. Great to meet some old friends i hadn't seen in a while, to put real people to usernames and to meet some new people. You are all great.

And if all goes well I might come out a better swimmer as a result!

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

Hey many thanks to all who came last night! It was a pleasure to see so many 'new' EF faces as well as the hoary old bruisers from the past. These nights are reliant on the enthusiasm of attendees and everyone was very friendly. As ever, twice the number who signed up turned up ...or was I getting double vision..?

*Maybe* we'll do it again. Bye bye!

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

Thank you Uncle Max for organising this!
It was my first time at the Talacker, it will not be my last.
To all that attended: It was a pleasure to make new aquaintences and wonderful to catch up with those that I knew. You are all a bunch of really nice people!

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

fell out of my bed half an hour ago - was it a dream or was I really there last night? I must say I wanted to come to one of these events for so long and never really managed to. Thanks a lot for organizing it and it was great to meet so many of you guys! Has anyone heard from isha and clarejane yet

Last I saw those two was on a dance floor doing the "lawnmower" and the robot.

Great night! As everyone else has said, nice to see the old faces and meet some new ones too.
