and i seriously hope you're not planning on keeping this atrocious weather for the event...
This is traditional Zurich autumn weather - we'll have to remind the local that this is what it is like the whole year - and that the EF is our sunshine - and that they shouldn't take our sunshine away - after 3 everyone

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

I wonder how Paul is doing right now? Hiding under a table? Hoping to get all the members who showed up tipsy or intoxicated? Holding his own?

Quite well. We reached many agreements, although i was a bit sceptical about the new real name policy, after some consideration ,i agree it is a good idea.

Hopefully the turn out in Geneva tomorrow will be equally good, if not better.

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

Thanks to Paul for hosting a nice evening. We had some good discussion. It was very generous of him to take care of the tab too.

And a hearty thanks to people such as Zymogen and Castro for making the effort to join us in Zurich.

Of course, most people on here never understood what all the fuss was about, and tonight proved as much. Positive gestures should always be returned in favour.

The booking for Geneva ( Pickwick ) is quite real, I assure you.

Here is a snapshot from their diary.

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

Thank you Paul for hosting such an amazing and informative evening. Also for your awesome generosity in picking up the entire tab. Had I known, I'd have ordered a bottle of whisky from the start! Hehe!

Was great to see my wonderful EF friends and homies again and to meet new faces. Thank you all for coming out and making this such a successful event.

You ALL R.O.C.K !!!

I wonder if this will have an impact on the turnout at tomorrow's Geneva meeting?

Quickly signs up for Geneva meeting.

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

Thanks to Paul for such a nice event, I can tell the ones who did not met him here that to my perspective he is very open to hear and answer. Thanks to all Efers who came along because after reading all the discussions i was very disapointed on the forum and tonight i remembered why i enjoy it in the first place. There are real people behind those avatars and nicknames who are very helpful, funny and simply awasome
LIB and OB Im very disapointed of you I was expecting DW and LOLcats (just kidding i was really looking forward to meeting these charachters, no homo)
PhilMRC, nice try sending your grandchild hahaha JK

Well nite nite write you tomorrow!

Really glad I could make it, thanks for make a Baseler feel so welcome
Also thanks for coming over Paul, I was beginning to wonder whether The Local wasn't just another faceless media organisation
