*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.

Basher,

Thanks for organizing this amazing event, but I will be leaving early morning (ehm...hopefully NOT straight from the absinthe&comedy night...ehm...) to go down south for my grandma's 90th birthday celebration, which we fixed for that weekend.

Have fun!!! See you on the Friday anyhow

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

I am unable to collect any deposits this week but will be at both of these events next week, so please try to bring your deposits to either one of them.
If we do not pay the deposits - they event cannot function, it is as simple as that - so please MAKE THE EFFORT.
I will be at the German conversation group (next Wednesday)
I, or someone else (will let you know), will also be at the Viadukt market for drinks (next Thursday)

Outside of these, you can also contact Zwissmiss, who has kindly offered to accept some deposits; or you can PM me to get the money . . . but in any case PLEASE MAKE THE EFFORT.

Basher, if you need extra help collecting this week, in addition to Zwissmiss and the events you mentioned, I will be at the Viadukt (this Thursday) and having lunch at Bauschänzli (this Friday), so if there are additional people who want to pay, they can PM me/meet me there and then I can get you the money at the conversation group next Wednesday (Oct. 19).

There is.

In 2021.

My elderly, gravely ill grandmother is meant to be coming round, but I've told her to come on the Sunday instead, so am signing up.
