*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Zegal am Lac (Privat room)

Good old Prof Taratonga, that`s what I say – he did a great job in holding the fort for me last month, as I battled the stresses of flat moving.
So - here we in the 10th month of our adventure through the culinary alphabet and you may be surprised that I have resisted the temptation to jump into `Japanese` for the J event.
No . . despite there being no Jamaican restaurant in Zürich, we are heading for `The Jamaican jerk-off`
Date Saturday 5th November. Start time is 19:30
Venue – room at the Zegal am Lac (Rote Fabrik), See strasse (Wollishofen)
Yes, my friends and before you get over excited at the title I can direct you to this cheeky little song from the great Sir Elton John as the source of my inspiration.

Actually we are doing the meal ourselves, having rented a room down at the Rote Fabrik, ordered food from `Clarkes` Jamaican café and organised great Reaggae music too.
See Clarkes web site for food details www.clarke.ch

How do I do it? You ask . . well, the answer is I didn`t .
Credit is going to –
i-b Deborah – for organising the room.
isha – for recommending the Jamaican café and contacting them initially.
Prof. Taratonga – for supplying some good music.
So – here is the deal:
The roomcosts 300chf– based on25 peoplethat is12 chf perperson.
The food is 35 chf per person. That includes Jamaicanpatties (veg or meat)starters – 2 per person. Main course ofeither Jerk chickenor Red snapper.Side dishes of rice–n- peas plus Jamaicancabbage salad.
The Drinks areseparate and will be suppliedprobably on a sale or return basis.
I think that this could be a great event – I know that it is later than I normally post the details but due to my move, I was unable to put it all together before.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO –is pay a 25CHF deposit (as I am going to have pay a deposit for the food, next week) by the 21st Oct AT THE LATEST.
If anyone is willing to act as one (of hopefully several) collectors of deposits – it would be a big, big help to me
This is the ONLY way that you will get on this month`s event unfortunately, as we have to pay money up front. This is a non-profit making event.
The date is Saturday 5th Novembr starting time is 19:30.
At the moment I have based the number on 25 people but obviously if there are more, then the room cost (per person) will go down accordingly.
So get booking – get funking for Jamaica.
RSVP'd Yes: 26 (17 members and 9 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (2 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 11
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Choices . . . I need your choices . . . it`s easy . . . do you want Red Snapper . . . or do you want Jerk Chicken.
If you have registered for this event . . . just ask yourself 2 questions:
1. Have you paid your deposit?
2. Have you made you choice for main course?

Well . . . . have you punk?

STILL OPEN SPACES AND IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO SAY YES. The more people there are - the better it will be.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

You see, I like snapper and I like chicken.
It's hard to know which one is best.

You know what folks, the cheapest place to do drinks is to buy them from Denner, so that's what I'm gonna do. You all don't seem to be that good in the choosing department so I won't even ask what you want to drink. I do however need a volunteer to go shopping with me so I don't pick a crap wine.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

I`ll go to get the drink with you mate - because I also have to collect the food!
Actually I like wine . . no I mean beer . . or cider . . but no crap. Don`t get German white wine. I only drink Merlot, Theakstones OP or - whatever.
I ordered Snapper - if you don`t like chicken - we can swap - coz I like both.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Three things to mention regarding this event:
  1. It is not too late to register - but PLEASE, when events involve the organisers putting money up front - try not to leave it until the last minute until you decide . .
  2. If you HAVE registered but NOT paid your deposit - SHAME ON YOU - 800 chf has been put up front, to get his event secured - the least you can do is pay aour measely 25 CHF.
  3. If you have registered but NOT sent me your choice for main course - then you will have to take what I order for you - FFS . . . how hard is it to send a PM?

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

I have 4 people (5 deposits) outstanding.
I have PM'd the people this morning. If I have not heard from them by Wednesday I will ask them for it publicly on this thread.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

So looking forward to this nosh up, thanks you guys and gals for organising!

We just got back yesterday from a one week holiday to Austria, hence no reply to Basher's request for meal choice. Jerk Chicken is what we would have chosen anyway, so all good in the hood...(shall PM you aswell Basher.)

Thanks also to Zwissmiss for letting me transfer the deposit to her.

The same day

Bitty Mclean & The Homegrown Band

are playing at the Rote Fabrik / Club Room
and DJ Boss Hi-Fi after the Live Gig

That means we can dance the whole night to some
nice Reggae/SKA/Dancehall.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

UPDATE ON MY LAST POSTING.
Late-comers have a last chance but must have cleared the deposit in the account of ZWISSMISS (whom you will have to contact for details) by thursday or you can pay me in person at the viadukt market on thursday evening.
After that - no chance sorry.
In any case, you have to take the jerk chicken now.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Although I PM`d everyone and told you that I will collect the food at around 17:00, I was asked the valid question - Does the event still start at 19:30?
The answer is YES - although please feel free to come around 19.00 and we can all have a drink together or just chat.
