*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Baden
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Mr. Pickwick Pub, Löwenplatz 8

Do you live or work in Baden or nearby? Or have you always just wanted to visit the town to take a look at the local expat community? Tired of having to take the train to Zurich to meet awesome English-speaking people?

Come have a drink or more in smashing company! We will meet every last Wednesday of the month, and you will recognise the company by a sign that says "English Forum".

We start at 8 pm, but latecomers will not be frowned upon.

Why yes, of course you can join! It is a public event, anyone who understands the invitation is welcome!

And frankly I don't think I've ever seen anyone English there, or maybe I've just forgotten. Americans, South Africans, Aussies and Kiwis, as far as Anglophones go, but no Brits. And then a load of us non-native speakers!

I wonder where all the Brits are?

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

A gentle reminder to whoever is following this thread: the holidays are done and dealt with, and we'll meet again this week. Or, well, at least I'll be meeting myself at the pub on Wednesday; wouldn't mind the company, though!

Is this a smoke-free pub? If I'm not extra-cautious, cigarette smell plus issues with the public transport might result in me

Hi FunnyBone; yes, Pickwick's is smoke-free. Well, the way they often are: people smoke right outside the front door, so some fumes may drift in, but you won't be soaked in smoke.

I hope to see you there; same goes for Stephanienie, and then of course all the oldies. And other newbies. Well, just about anybody who's housebroken, really.

Hello WildGorilla, yes, we are still meeting every last Wednesday of the month! The event updates itself every month, so you'll always find the next meeting time at the beginning of this thread. That means our next date is on Wed 27th of May, in a couple of weeks.

I will be there, and I bet a bunch of others too. Hope to see you there too! You will find us at a table with a sign that says "English Forum" – or you can just ask at the bar, they will surely be able to point to the right table (and they speak good English).

Hi vostok4,

It is very much happening also in June, even though our usual (and may I say very appreciated) host an-gina is out of town. I just booked a table this Wednesday 21 June at 20.00 in the name of English Forum. Usually they put up a sign, otherwise just ask at the bar and they'll guide you right. You, and everone else who'd like to, are welcome to join!

Emelie

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

I just thought I'd officially declare and simultaneously remind everyone that the pub night is on again this week (that'd be tomorrow, counting from where I am now) and that I will be there. And yes, I will also reserve a table for us.

Hope to see many folks there, it's been way too long since I last had the chance to drop by! All the newbies are, like, oldies now, and nobody remembers me anymore.

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Here's just a reminder, and a reassurance: I will be at Pickwick again this tomorrow, hoping to see many of you there as well! Ask the staff for the English Forum table, if you can't find us (me?).
