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

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Guess who's bread-winning half has to go on a business trip this particular week, leaving her home with the kids..? That's right, I can't make it this time, despite being the one to choose the date. Sorry!

But my absence mustn't deter you from showing up; the rest of you should meet there as planned. Be loud and obnoxious and report back later, and I'll make sure that I'm around next month.

I'll even reserve you guys a table - last time the place was so packed that the reservation was definitely needed. You won't get to enjoy my Premium Handmade English Forum Sign, though.

Ohh, we'll mourn your absence. Some husbands have no sense of timing, let's admit it

Will do our best without you, but it won't be the same.

Have you booked the table yet? Thanks for that, it was really crowded last time.

Indeed. Well, he has been and will keep on getting nagged about this, despite being helpless in the face of higher authorities and their unforgiving work schedule.

I haven't yet, I'll wait until Tuesday for the headcount.

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

This sounds fun Especially since I don't have to take the train to Zurich to meet fun English speaking people. Not sure yet if I can make it this Wednesday but I will definitely try! Till what time are you there normally?

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Last time we left a bit early (I was starving, nothing to do with the company ), I think about 9. I understand the others stayed much longer.

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

I'm still mourning the passing away of my Talacker night out last night.
I might need a beer or two to make me feel better...

Btw, in the absence of the EnglishForum sign, how will I recognise which table you've reserved ?

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Don't fret, I've just booked a table, and they'll take care of the sign, since my artistic abilities cannot compete with an-gina's.

See you all later

Ha, Miss Marple beat me to it! I just called the pub today (forgot to do it yesterday, and what the heck, today's just as fine) to book the table, and the gentleman pointed that another lady had just made a similar reservation a moment earlier...

I feel my monopoly shaking!

Have fun, little ones. I feel like you're all grown up, having beers all on your own. Makes me so proud!

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

I'm sooo sorry . I thought you'd forgotten and didn't want to be a pain in the arse reminding you, when I could do it myself.

Will think of you aaaaall the time

There's hardly reason to apologise for showing initiative... And I HAD forgotten about it for a while!

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

We had a talk last night and it seems that 20.00 is better for everyone.

So, new time next month?

See you all then

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

I changed the time for 8 pm for next time. See you then!

(I hope you at least have hangovers, or a teeny-weeny sleep debt, or beer stains on your trousers. Or something!)

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Ohoy,

It's that time of the month again, gentle people of Argovia and its surroundings. How many seats should I reserve this week? How many people will make the inarguably worthwhile trip to see the Official Handwritten English Forum Sign?

And remember, it's a new time this month: we'll be starting at 8 pm.

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

I've reserved a table; a smaller one than before, since the headcount seems more modest this time. But big enough for the random unannounced visitor to drop by, so do feel welcome!

See you tonight!

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

This month I have yet another case of poorly timed work trips by the OH, so I won't be able to show up. Which is a terrible shame, especially since there seem to be some new faces about. But fret not, newbies, someone else will surely make you feel comfortable enough!

I'll reserve you guys a table under the name English Forum; ask for it at the bar if you can't otherwise locate it. And have fun!

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Okay, that's a first: I called the pub to make the reservation, and they were able to get all of it, except for the name "English Forum". I mean, the fellow at the other end, obviously a native English speaker, was able to hear the "eight o'clock, six people" part, but when it came down to giving a name, the reception apparently broke. Every. Single. Time.

The mobile network clearly has a severe EF allergy!

So he said he'll put us under "Zero"; I'm not sure what to make of that. But anyway, I doubt there are other reservations for six people at 8 pm tonight, so you'll surely find the right one.

Re: Monthly drinks in Baden

Sarah, eh? I guess that kind of makes more sense, although I must say I preferred Zero.

It really was a bad connection.

(wish I was there)
