Re: Intermediate German Conversation Group Basel (B1+) Feb 1st.

We were upstairs Feb 1st, it is slightly less crowded but managed to finish one beer anyway without needing another -- sehr dankbar to all that came!

Re: Intermediate German Conversation Group Basel (B1+) Feb 1st.

HeatherB, Yes it is a "regular" event, although somehow the silly repeating calendar event thing never works for me. Sometimes though, I am away or sick or whatever, and I can't make it. Sometimes it's only me or the one other organizer shows up. Perhaps there are other free social "regular" events that are more useful in Basel? I have no idea!

Re: Intermediate German Conversation Group Basel (B1+): Wednesdays

Looks like 29 February is a wash... there will be no where in Basel that will be open in Basel and not overrun by Fasnacht revelers. So we take a week off?

Re: Intermediate German Conversation Group Basel (B1+): Wednesdays

There's an Afterwork Party at Bar Rouge every Wednesday night. It's at the top of the tall building at Messeplatz (hotel Ramada?) Messeturm. You can see some pictures here:

the actual www.barrouge.ch website is crap!

hope to see some of you tomorrow night!

Re: Intermediate German Conversation Group Basel (B1+): Wednesdays

Next week, on Wednesday April 25, I am going to a Centrepoint event! So, Ginge and Black-Eyed Suzie are most likely going as well. We're going to the Basel Snooker Club.

The event description is here. You can still sign up with Wendy until Friday afternoon April 20th.

I thought that some of you would still like an opportunity for a weekly fix of High German conversation. The only other free evening I have next week is Tuesday! So, we could meet Tuesday instead of Wednesday! What do you think?

I'll make an extra Tuesday event later!

@bukkist: yes, usual place, usual time

Composer: no worries, we go easier with beer/wine

see you tonight. I am in a dark blue flowery top and will probably be reading my Deutsch Krimi if I finish my stuff and get there early.
