******Date of event changed! Please RSVP again (as i did something and f***ed up the replies....*******

Since Grumpy will stay in Geneva this Saturday night, lets take him out and show him how les Genevois can have a good time!

Lets meet on Saturday 2nd October at 2000 at Spring Brothers Irish pub in Geneva. Its in the old town (Grand Rue 23). We can have a drink there and then move on to dinner somewhere. Maybe as it has been suggested

and then one for a curry at Bollywood in Paquis?
I will be there sitting at the bar so in the rare case you dont recognize me from my picture, just come and talk to the cutest woman sitting next to the darts machine :P

Of course timing isnt strict. I will be there from 1900 probably If anyone wants to come earlier then you are very welcome


PS. Im only organising the drinks part. Im leaving the dinner part open because i dont know what people will want at the day. More spontaneous this way And more chance to choose a fully booked restaurant but that just adds to the fun of it!


PS2. Grumpy if you do show up the first beer is free

Re: Grumpy visits Geneva!!

It wasn't your fault about the RSVP's. Changing the date just deletes them - perhaps using the reasoning that if the date is changed there is no guarantee that the same folk will be able to come.

For future reference - if you ever have to change a date, or any other detail, again, you can copy the names already on the list before changing the date or whatever, paste them into a new post after the alteration... and then ask if anyone will now be unable to attend.

Re: Grumpy visits Geneva!!

I'm hoping to leave Morges between 6 and 7 so should be ready to go at my hotel at GE airport by 8 ish..... is it best I take a train into town from the airport... if so which stop is nearest to the pub and what's the last train back?

Don't expect any dancing on the tables from me, I have a 3.30am start Saturday and a full on day working on my own in Morges, but beer will help (I also have a full day working at the Expat-expo on Sunday and a very long drive home Sunday night). I will bring some cheese to the pub though

Thanks for that I will do it next time. I didnt think it would delete everything. Thankfully i only had two Yes and one guy i contacted already. The other girl i hope sees this

Its actually easier to get the bus to town. Bus 10 direction Onex-Cite. You get down at stop Bel Air.

Then you either give me a call so i can come pick you up or you cross the street, cross another street with some tram lines and climb up a very steep hill and there you are!

I will make a map later tonight and post it here

And there are buses until after midnight so you are fine

Re: Grumpy visits Geneva!!

By 'girl' I think you mean me. Haven't been called that in a long time!

Can't make it on Saturday, as the evening is already spoken for. Ah well, maybe next time.... sigh.

Awesome. (Where's the drool smiley?)

Don't be afraid to bring too much, gata and I will finish it off. Ask the poor schools of lobster we've decimated.

Excellent to meet you at last and the famous cheese which tasted so good, also great to meet fellow EF people as well.

Grumpgrapefruit definitely one of my heros, selling English cheese here in Switzerland and making a real good go of it, hat off to you Sir.

Re: Grumpy visits Geneva!!

Great meeting everyone. The cheese was wonderful as expected, thanks grumpy! Thanks to gata for handling burger delivery (as well as Grumpy delivery ). And magic for his great stories and confirming our suspicions about bankers.

Looking forward to the seafood buffet next Friday. I'll set up the event tomorrow.

Re: Grumpy visits Geneva!!

Seafood buffet event's set up.

And this is a fun fact that feels strangely relevant: if you combine the amount of weight magic and myself have lost during the last year, you get (more or less) gata's body weight.

More or less

Are lobsters fattening?
