*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: The Outback Lodge, Zürich.

. . . . . . I am back, well almost, will arrive home around 23rd April after spending the winter months in NE England.
Indebted as I am, to my fellow EFers who stood in as capable custodians of this event during Jan, Feb and March . . . namely Federica, Zwissmiss and Prof Taratonga.
Well here we are at the big `O` and after some consideration . . it`s G`DAY MATE . . because we are going to Oz.
I have booked a table for 16 people at the Outback Lodge, (Stadelhofer Passage) Stadelhoferstrasse 18, 8001. Zürich
The date is friday 4th May (why not April? . . well as they may say in Oz . . I need time to get my s**t together after being away for so long!)
The time is 19:30 (that would be 19:30 . . . not 20:00).
I hope to see you there . . hoping I even remember you too.
Finally . . as always . . new members are MOST welcome.
RSVP'd Yes: 19 (14 members and 5 guests) RSVP'd No: 3
  • Uncle Max - May the Fourth Be With You
  • nygnel - Basher why would you choose the only day I can't make it!!! I have to work late that day...
  • i-b-deborah - Won't be in town.... could have worn my hat :(
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Hey Basher, the RSVP is still open, but I am not sure how many people you booked for. I hope I can add a "last minute guest"...OH is joining

Let me know if that is a problem number-wise. Cheers!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

The restaurant have just agreed to increase the seating to 20 people and so unfortunately this event is now closed.
Please ensure, that if you have registered, that you do actually:
a) Turn up
b) Turn up on time!

If there are any late requests to join - please send me a PM and I will see what I can do.

See you all there!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Okay . . okay . . okay, that is finally IT.
We are now 22 ( EddieCrocker and ExpatIT . . . you are both in) - but the restaurant people said it is pretty full tomorrow, so we are luck,luck,lucky
the table is booked for 22 people under the name of Steve (that would be me).
I will join the Rt Honorable Prof Taratonga for a pre-meal apero and then will be at the restaurant from around 19:20.
See you all there.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

A huge thank you to Basher for organising this event and for the drinks. The chicken wings and red snapper were excellent and the company awesome, as usual. Had a great evening!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich

Thanks go to Basher and the entertaining attendees for making a cracking evening. A fun night had by all. Looking forward to the next one.

I had the feeling we had all met before. Absinthe anyone?

Sorry I am just replying now the weekend was busy!...
Thoughts on the Outback? Food was OK, service was excellent, but the company was the best! It was great to see you again Basher, welcome back!
Looking forwards to "P".
