*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.

Kim327 - I would contact Basher or Zwissmiss asap. You would need to get the deposit to them by Thursday.

See you Saturday....perhaps!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Will we need to bring the booze in a cool box, or are there fridges available?

I'll stick with just the American accent. Riot gear and American accents would mean this event is taking place in Oakland.

Actually there is no fridge I'll be there to help Basher set up, and I'll try to get on from the restaurant that we can use.

Plus 1 to that. Had a great time - good to see some new faces. Also thanks to zwissmiss for sorting the finances.

Looking forward to December....

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Thanks to all involved for arranging! Especially, to all involved in clearing up and serving: thank you thank you!

It was nice to see new faces and old. A particularly surreal moment was Wolli's expression when the plastic tractors and trikes started moving by themselves around the room...

Thanks again.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Thank you Basher, i-b-deb, Prof T and Isha for organising this event!
Thank you to all who helped set up and serve the food, and many thanks for those who helped to tidy up afterwards. Prof - T thank you for the awesome TUNES.
I really enjoyed everyone's company.
Racing with the tractors was funny, I prefered the merry-go round, but felt a bit afterwards.
Thank you all for trusting me with your francs.

Ditto to that - it was harder work than I thought, getting it all together but as I said at the event - there is no way it would have been possible without the huge efforts from i-b-deborah, zwissmiss and prof.taratonga - thank you so much.
Thanks also to everyone who helped in the clearing up afterwards. In the end it was worth it because the food was excellent and the people were brilliant.
As i-b-deborah said - it all went crazy when she brought the kids toys out.
Nice to meet yet more new people and see some of my avourite EF members again. Anyway, it`s back to normality and being waited on . . . for now.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Terrific evening, thank you all.

And a particular thank you to the person who organised the entertainment.....who'd have thought a singing, dancing, drunk guy could be so much fun. I did feel a tad bad for him when he rolled a cigarette, lit it, and still didn't realise he had forgotten to add the tobacco....rizla certainly does burn fast....oh well!
