*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Geneva
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Holy Cow, Plainpalais

Hi all

For all those craving burgers and looking to meet some Geneva EFers, I propose lunch on Thursday the 10th of May at Holy Cow near Plainpalais.

Check out their site: http://holycow.ch/index.php

You can take the tram 15 until Plainpalais and we can meet in the middle of the square at Noon, before heading to Holy Cow. Those running late can meet us straight at the Holy Cow.

If someone can make a little EF flag we can wave at Plainpalais and later at the restaurant to make finding us easier, it would be a big help.

Hope to see many of you there.

Re: Burger Lunch

Meeting at the middle of the square? Do you mean that huge plainpalais diamond thingy? I dont know the area at all there. Or is it another place you mean?

Re: Burger Lunch

Yeah, the Plainpalais square with the statues and the tram 12 and 17 stops. Those who arrive on the 15 just quickly need to cross the street.

Re: Burger Lunch

I fancy a day out so I'll come even though I'm supposed to be watching what I eat.
It was fun last time and I will hopefully have more time this time around.

Re: Burger Lunch

If it's as busy as the Lausanne Holy Cow, it will be hard to get seats, no?

By the way, you might want to change your location in your profile. Or if you're really coming all the way from Uruguay just for a burger, it's a darn long trip!

Hey, you're making a nasty habit of being sick when there's an event on!

Really hope it clears up quickly, sinus infections can be painful and hang on forever.

Re: Burger Lunch, Geneva, May 10th

Yeah I know... I've never been so sick so often than this past year... In the last 12 months I've had 3 strep throats, one flu, 2 stomach bugs, several colds and now a sinus infection. According to my doctor it's sheer exhaustion due to taking care of two kids, breastfeeding and working

Hey, I still feel dreadful for having had to cancel the book swap, so spare me the sarcasm Gata, please

Re: Burger Lunch, Geneva, May 10th

Sorry guys but I'm wimping out too. Had a terrible migraine today so will have too much stuff to do tomorrow to make up for today. Shame as I would have liked to meet MC.
Melusine get well soon. Can we find a new date for a bookswap do you think?
