Re: Pool tonight

Just had a quick look at the website - www.ey-site.ch - and it seems the best way to get there is to get the no. 3 tram to Fellenbergstrasse and walk from there, is this right?

I'll grab the 7pm train from Baar so should be there around 8 depending on trams. Catch you later

Re: Pool tonight

Think that was at CherryBowl in Zug. Too many pub-sports threads....

Re: Pool tonight

It is great to get so many people together on so a short notice! This will be a fun evening.

I will be on the train now and will call the place between 18.00 and 18.30... it is ok to have some last minute decisions, but would be cool if I know approximately how many people will come till then....

See you tonight,

Chris

Re: Pool tonight

So's you knows, the Ey is down a suburban street (In der Ey) which may seem off-putting for being a bit beyond. Keep walking, it's down there.

Re: Pool tonight

Ok,

here we go:

I called them to reserve the tables, but usually they do not take any reservations. Since it is Monday and I know that the place is never full on Mondays I talked the manager to reserve us three adjectant tables as we would bring him enough revenue as a group

I am afraid that I do not manage to be the first one there. I guess I will be a couple of minutes late as I have to pick up my wife by car... so if you come first, just go to the counter and say that you are from "the group with the three tables". I told the staff that you most probably cannot speak German, so it should work out...

See you in an hour!

Chris

Ok I'll make my apologies now. Sorry!

I don't recall what for, but I am sure there are plenty of reasons.

Re: Pool tonight

Yeah, me too. I was just at home ready to go, glueing-on my Paul Newman tash, and I got waylaid by a phone call. I hope it was a good night. Any comments on the venue ?

Re: Pool tonight

Venue was EXCELLENT.

In all about 30-40 tables (pool & snooker)

3 Darts machines.

Didn't sample their food.

Drinks were good, but for their speciality ask for a "ladyboy".

Re: Pool tonight

yes, good night, good venue.

for those not in the know:



sadly, the next part is missing. TRAGICALLY, we had the wrong order.

Re: Pool tonight

The Ey Bar is an excellent place and they do good food - the Ey Burger being particularly decent.

In the summer, the terrace is available - so the restaurant area grows and has a nice atmosphere.

There is a pool club down there on certain nights which congests the tables a little.

I've not seen anyone fall off the chairs "in the wall" yet. Any advances on that?

And pitchers of beer as you well know are reasonably-priced. The short cut from there to the tram is turn right out of the place, turn right down the first street and there is a cut-through which comes out by the bus stop for the 67 (so opposite the tram stop).

Top Place.
