Do you have to wear a Santa suit to come along?
You don't HAVE to but it will be fun! A santa hat or even something red will work too though! Currently there are over 50 ppl signed up to go so if all were dressed in santa theme we will be awesome!

Looking forward to seeing/meeting you all next weekend!

Re: Basel Santa Pub Crawl - December 2011!!!

First bar has been decided: Grenzwert, Rheingasse 3. It is over the mittlerbrucke and at the coner of the first street on your right.

We will meet at 6pm in Grenzwert and stay there for the first hour-ish (6-7). Upon arrival i will provide a list of the bars for the evening as well as my number in case anyone gets separated from the group. We were 54 ppl at the last crawl and i am happy to say that we managed to stay together as a group! The crawl will succeed best if we all start together at bar #1. If for some reason you cannot make it between 6 and 7 please message me separately and i'll send you my number. See you on Saturday!

Are you bringing your whistle again or have you got some sleigh bells this time?

Re: Basel Santa Pub Crawl - December 2011!!!

Was just over at Migros and saw they had not only santa hats, reindeer ears, and generally cute stuff but they also had santa outfits for both men and women! Perfect timing for this weekend!

Plus this way there will be no awkward entrances for newbies trying to find the group!

Re: Basel Santa Pub Crawl - December 2011!!!

Dear Justrose and all, thanks for the superbe organization and the fun, fun evening! It was so good to meet the Basel crowd, and to be back in the city (you know how partial I am to Basel...).

Special cheers to Miss Friis

I am sorry I left before the end, but I was quite tired and feeling the effect of some tropical disease vaccine I had earlier during the day...but both me and my friend had a blast. Hope to be back to the city soon enough. Have a wonderful week!!!

P.S. The temperature at Cargo Bar was too hot inside, but I think it gets the "best bar" prize from us, if only for the fact that we were able to get Pisco and cola (Piscola), Chilean style!

Re: Basel Santa Pub Crawl - December 2011!!!

Cheers to Just Rose for putting in the time and effort into organizing the pub crawl and superbly executing it.

Even though the eventual crowd may have thinned a bit due to the absolutely miserable weather, there was plenty of revelry, cheers and bonhomie among those present.

I think almost all those present made it to the last pub which in itself was a big ask.

Happy holidays to all and see you in the new year!
