City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Desperados Wiedikon

Hey Gringoes! I've been wanting to try this place out for a few months, so anybody care to join me?

http://www.desperado.ch/

This is in Wiedikon, near Schmiedie Wiedikon station. The number 9 and 14 trams run straight past it.

Plan is show up, eat, drink, compare sombreroes. I'll wait until sometime tuesday and then make a reservation, so please RSVP asap to give me an idea of numbers.
RSVP'd Yes: 12 (7 members and 5 guests)
  • Uncle Max - You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
  • Nanda - I think I'm going to make it this time :)
  • DanielL + 4 guests - Yum!
  • jemma - Sod it, am sure after a few tequilas I won't even know I've got a cold (must make sure I don't get carried away on the shots though as we all know what happened at pub golf!)
  • Natasha
  • Woodsie - Glad I checked instructions. The only Desperados I knew of before was in Höngg.
  • hugh_abu + 1 guest - Hell yeah...!!!!! Based on below post.
RSVP'd Maybe: 4 (4 members and No guests)
  • Moran - I'm right around the corner but it depends on work, will hopefully make it but may have to turn up after dinner
  • Jessy-lein - I may come. It'd be on my way home from the gym. Before or after the shower. I don't know what Mexican food is like in England, but desperados is.......as close to mexican food as Switzerland is to Mexico. But the margarhitas are taquilla-y
  • Su1975
  • MarcoPolo78 - Gonna try to make it for a quick drink later...!
RSVP'd No: 6
  • terryhall - Attendance precluded by prior arrangements. Report back tho cos I like my Mexicana :)
  • polly - Love the place ... but Grasshoppers are playing tomorrow :(
  • Nathu
  • saharanz - Can't make this one. Not sure if that's a bad thing or a good thing????
  • MathNut - Can't make it... sounds like fun though!
  • thoean - Sorry, at pumpkin country on pumpkin day.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Sorry it occurred to me afterwards. Am knackered from running at lunch, and heavily distracted by having a job...

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

So how many are actually coming?

Like I said.. I have 1 guest joining, but probably well after the meal is finished.

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

Its looking likely that I can make it for dinner/drinks (may have to dart out for a bit for a meeting but not sure yet), is there room still available? Just me, no guest

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

Oh geez, I must have done something really bad in my life to deserve today. My London boss just hit me with an Eagles pun completely independantly of this thread. I'm going to go hide in the middle of a desert somewhere.

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

I think we may go one or two over the actual booking, but when I spoke to them earlier it sounded like they'd be reasonably flexible. And if people are on time I'm sure we can grab extra seats.

I am now in the 'sit back and let things take care of themselves' stage of this event

Nice.. and the later you can slip into an even more confortable stage of:

"unconsciousness".

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

Bad karma to Brummie for telling us the place was rubbish. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the pink drinks, personally! Will be going back again.

Re: Zurich - Wiedikon Desperados

The Marguerita you were drinking perhaps ? Or maybe it was red, adn should do some more chemgoddess colourblindness tests.

I must say the Mexican Painkiller cocktails advertised earlier dont work. I kept taking them and it made me feel worse.

I think I should make a general eye test... I've mistaken the birthday boy and made everyone singing happy birthday for the 2nd time!

He was a miserable bastard anyway and rather than just grinning and asking for his birthday drink he tried to ignore us completely and leave as fast as he could.
