Howdy All,

In VanCity, it was a tradition of mine to host a potluck to celebrate Tamil New Year. Alas, I won't move into my new place till 1st May, so to continue the tradition this year, I will host at a Tamil Restaurant. It's a tiny place so I am going to limit to 8 people total.

Please join me and I'll introduce you to Sri Lankan/South Indian cuisine.

As a New Year's gift, to thank EF and celebrate its founder, I will donate the amount of my bill to EF.
RSVP'd Yes: 8 (6 members and 2 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 1 (1 members and No guests)
  • HTD - Great idea; that's a probable

  • Nanda - Wish I could make it but am away this weekend. Hope to make it next time tho. Thank you for the donation :)
  • Jack82 - Crap! I realized now I'll be back home in Milano to vote
  • Uncle Max - Doh. Happy New Year
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Tamil New Year Dinner

Is anyone going via HBahnhof? I'll be coming from Baar and don't know my way around Zurich very well (though I can read a map if needed ). Will arrive at station at 5.25.

Re: Tamil New Year Dinner

Here's a map to the location. It's an easy walk from the train station. Exit out the north entrance and head west along museumstrasse, which becomes zollstrasse and then onto josefstrasse. Keep walking past langstrasse and it will a couple more blocks on your left.

Re: Tamil New Year Dinner

I went home full, happy and a tad bit tipsy last night.

Great job, thanks for hosting.

Vaisakhi was also yesterday; we all follow the same solar calendar, so various cultures celebrate the start of the calendar year and/or harvest festival.
