We will start at Mr. Pickwicks, and then we may venture out further.

Re: Basel Drinks & Social

Hi all,

so many "maybe"s. Is it that hard to decide if you want to have a beer on a Saturday night or not?

I will PM my mobile number to everyone, in case someone (inevitably) can't find a group.

In addition, I will post a picture of an item that I will put on our table - so that everyone can recognize us. It has to be something that is not likely to be put on a table by anyone else randomly, so I have to look for a "distinctive object".

Cheers!

In order for everyone new to recognize us, I will put the magic object on the table.


Note that it is rather small (height 5cm)!

Re: Basel Drinks & Social

Hi,

there are lot of different meet-ups, and other social events. Social drinks are probably the easy way to start; there are every time 3-4 newcomers to Basel...

Follow the social events calendar, you will see events when they are created....

If my husband and I were to wander into Pickwicks on Friday evening, how might we know that you are you?

Head towards the English-speaking person and say, "Braincake! Is that you?" Simples. (In Pickwicks, you may have to repeat this 45-50 times ...)

I'm sure that would go over well with the rest of the patrons.

Are you there at a particular time or is this where your entire evening on Fridays?

Who, me? I'm almost never in Pickwicks. My 4-year-old runs my social calendar. Or ruins it, or something.

Re: Basel Drinks & Social

Ok, I guess that was sort of the royal "You" and not "you" you. I'll wait for the brain surgeon to reply, unless someone else will be there at a specific time?

Note that this happened last Friday and Saturday. I.e. you may need time traveling machine. Or some good soul would pretend to be Braincake this Friday in Paddys/Mr Pickwicks
