16.01.2008 19:30 to 23:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Talacker Bar

seeing as nobody else has already done it and some of us are tough enough to do it every week...



All welcome!
Come and meet the faces behind the names. Enjoy a few drinks, make new acquaintances!

Here's the map link: map

It's around the corner from Paddy Reilly's; staggering distance from Stauffacher, Paradeplatz, Bahnhofstrasse and, er, Kaufleuten.

Bar telephone: 044 211 2050
Trams 2 / 9 to Sihlstrasse.

There'll be an area reserved for us. If in doubt, ask the staff where the English Forum area is and you'll be fine. We're usually in the far back corner. There are often many of us in the bar and we're all, er, English speakers, so you'll have no difficulty finding us.

Most people come alone, so don't be shy of approaching

Looking forward to meeting you!

"sambrightman - i will be giggling like a 15-year-old girl"

Sam, 15 year old girls don't communicate. At 12 they giggle at everything, then they get a bit older and close up.

Uncle Max,

It is silly to eat Sushi in Zurich. Come to Talacker. Inhaling litres of smoke is the proper way to enjoy this town.

What does the "Hash" in HashBrown stand for in your case?

Re: Wednesday Night Drinks - Talacker Bar

  • DaveA - I will bring another fashion sample from Big Daves wild-shirt-emporium and endure the usual widespread derision from blouse-wearing-Woodsie and co.
You started it flower boy!

Dress to impress; dress to express; or dress like the guy with the dog who was at Canadian Dudes tennis club. The choice is yours.

Re: Wednesday Night Drinks - Talacker Bar

I hate to say this, but I seriously think that weekly Talacker drinks is a bit of an overkill

My ideal social calender would consist of Bling fortnightly and Talacker fortnightly, naturally on alternate weeks.

Just because there are drinks on doesn't mean you have to come!

Actually there were quite a few people last week who couldn't make it and said we should do it next week instead - they also seem to be absent from today's list so maybe they were just making excuses?

And for me -any excuse to get out of winterthur!
