City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Beyond restaurant

Dear all

I have been asked to organize something else than just dinner, so, here is my idea: What about a good dinner and a tour of hotelbars?

What and where 1: Dinner at the Beyond, at Zollstrasse 20, 8005 Zürich Kreis 5. This is a Chinese restaurant that has been highly recommended in the restaurant recommendations thread in this forum. It is very reasonably priced and the furniture is not very fancy, but the food is good. I have been there several times and never been disappointed. It is within walking distance from the main train station. We will meet at the information point in the main station, next to the shop L'Occitaine, at 7 p.m. and walk over. Or you can come directly.

What and where 2: Those who want can then continue to the long night of the hotel bars, which starts at 9 p.m. Tickets for that can be bought at the participating hotel bars and cost CHF 39. A shuttle bus takes you from one bar to the next, and there is music in all bars. For the participating hotels and all further details: http://www.langenachtderhotelbars.ch...e&curr_cat=151

If you can, please let me know whether you are coming for the restaurant by Friday afternoon, so that I can make reservations. I will make the reservation for more people than sign up, but it is always good to have an idea of how many people will come. The long night of the hotel bars does not require any sign-up.

Please check here for any last minute changes. Then, I will also post a description of what I am wearing so that you know how to recognize us.

See you then?

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

This sounds great, but is it 39CHF per Bar? That seems to be how Startickets is selling it unless I am just missing something with my lack of ability to read German....That would add up to a lot of CHFs

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

Hi, Moran
I have just checked. It is CHF 39 for all 11 participating hotel bars, including one welcome drink at the first bar you go to, a ticket for zone 10 for travel, the shuttle bus, free snacks at midnight, and some other things.
So far, my friends have only signed up for the Beyond and left the hotelbar question open.
So, are you coming?
See ya
Idgie

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

Thanks for clarifying! 39chf for all the bars sounds a lot better!!

I will see if some of my friends would like to join as well and will post an update to the RSVP as soon as I hear back. Count me in for dinner for sure and hopefully there will be a group continuing on to the bars.

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

Make sure you try item #217 on the dinner Menu. It's lethal.

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

Sure, there is always toom for one more - looking forward to seeing you.

In the meantime, I realized it is not a Yankees cap but a pink New York cap. Well, I assume there won't be too many people with pink caps of any denomination running around in Zurich...

See ya

Sure, but it's rarely worth 2 cents

Re: Dinner at Beyond and Long Night of the Hotel Bars

Many thanks for organizing another lovelly night out, Idgie. The food was indeed very good. Note that when they say spicy, they mean spicy

By the way, a big thank you also to Uncle Max. The photo you posted was an unvaluable help for us to locate Idgie.

Hi Idgie,

I hope you all had a good time. Sorry I couldn't make it. I'd love to try that restaurant and I was *really* gutted to have missed out on that ghost walk last time!

kfc.
