Re: Meat Market

You might want to propose some incentive to attract some "Meat" to join your event and balance out the crowd........ or else it might just be a "Sausage Market".

Re: Meat Market

Instead of "Meat Market" you could call it what it is, Brasilian wimmin folk looking for rich men, preferably Swiss.

The Carlton sucks IMHO.

Re: Meat Market

Ok, seriously, how many of you thought this was going to be a thread about where to get inexpensive cow products?

In Switerland? You're living in cloud cuckoo* land.

I know this, but I'm guessing if you've been here long enough your first thought wasn't "Oooh, cheap trashy date material thread!"

Re: Meat Market

Some EF history: the Carlton was Christened 'Meat Market' by Natasha a while back, and the name has stuck (although the organisers of that particular meat market event have moved onto a different venue).

Meat Market [Can't seem to find a date/a night of fun with a woman in Zurich]

Meat Market Tuesday

Re: Meat Market

I thought this was an event for a big cow steak BBQ event.

But from the comments here, is this a cover up for take out sausage? Or a meat cleaver event of sort, which somehow involves Russian/ Brazilian prey?

*ish confuzed*

Re: Meat Market

I wonder how much I could make organising those in Switzerland? Anyone want to go into business with me?
