12.10.2011 19:00 to 23:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Talacker Bar, Talacker 41

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

Bummer that i cant make this one. Am really greatful to Uncle M for having started this old tradition again. For all new commers, go along, meet some of the faces behind the posts and have a cracking time.

Especially newcomers! All are welcome and almost all arrive on their own. Bring a smile and leave your troubles at the door. NO guarantees the conversation will be as sparkling as the useless disco lights but if Beardsy's there you will not be wanting for glamour etc. etc...

Ok, we're at the table by the entrance - not under the useless disco lights - in case you don't know where you're going.

Looking forward to seeing new faces and old this evening.

Delayed flight means I maybe a bit late. If in doubt ask the staff for the EF table. Old timers: please look after the new faces with appropriate aplomb. Thanks!

Full bar. Tried to find the table. Asked staff and then people in the table, not EF. Had a beer and went home. I'll try again some other week!

The beer selection there is poor indeed. At least they have Beck's.
