*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Andorra Bar

Do you like alcohol?
Do you like bars?
Do you like the number 11?
Do you think the obvious and numerous disadvantages of going out and meeting expats are, on balance, mostly, and at least to some extent, outweighed by the positive points?

If at least one of your answers was 'yes', then this is the event for you.
And if the Mayans are right, it might be the last drinks we ever have.

[Insert mystical Mayan end-of-the-world on this day spiel here. Note to self, copy and paste text of movie 2012.]
RSVP'd Yes: 17 (9 members and 8 guests)
  • beardsy + 6 guests
  • Crumbs - Yes, yes, yes and yes I think so.

Re: 11.11.11 Flimsy Excuse for Drinks

Let's start at 20:30. I won't actually be there then - me and my guests will roll up at about 10 or so. Crumbs will be there at eighty thirty, wearing red, white, and blue.

Walk up one of the side streets (Schoffelgasse is easiest). Andorra is opposite Bodega Espanol. [Münstergasse 20]

Possible location change!

Andorra seems to be closed.
If so, we'll go to Schoffel bar. It's 30 metres from Andorra, downhill.

Here's a video about it, starring a nice blonde woman:

Re: 11.11.11 Flimsy Excuse for Drinks

Yes, I indeed do like all of those things and am in need of some good English speaking boozing. Never been to any of these events, so I'm looking forward to it.

So will he be 100 soon?

11.11.1918 was the date the armistice was signed, which ended the first world war.

It is also the official start of carnival in Munich, at 11:11 at Marienpltz.

Yes, and the allies didn't get the joke and thought the German surrender was for real.

Flimsy Excuse update - two prime tables have been reserved by the window and the lovely waitresses of Andorra are looking forward to serving an unruly mob.

Note that Andorra also do nice sandwiches...

Re: 11.11.11 Flimsy Excuse for Drinks

Okay, so I've heard that Andorra is closed, which is weird.

I HOPE they'll be open on Friday night, since they'll be making trillions of francs. But if not, we'll meet at Schoffel, which is just down the hill from Andorra towards the river.

Re: 11.11.11 Flimsy Excuse for Drinks

Have called the Andorra Bar - and it is DEFINITELY CLOSED this evening.

They have burst water pipes, problems with a loo, and some machines are broken. They say they are really sorry about this and will try to fix things up as soon as possible. Expect them to be open for business again in a couple of weeks.

So - looks like the Schoffel, then. I'll be there from 8.30pm.
