Adliswil get-together

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I've moved to Adliswil 2 years ago and have mostly been working abroad since.
Hoping to work more in Zürich from now on, and was wondering if there are people interested in a get-together every now and then.

We could pick a bar (e.g. Potbelly's) or, if the group is small, even at my place for BBQ in summer, movies in winter (I've got a beamer and big white wall).

Please let me know your thoughts!

Re: Adliswil get-together

Catching up sounds like a good thing, although there aren't many spaces to just hang out. The Migros restaurant is one place, I guess, as is Pizzeria Flora (the bar/restaurant in the Adliswil station building).

If you're up for a short bus trip, there's also the Shamrock Irish pub in Wollishofen - you just grab the 184 (or 185 for a longer trip) from Adliswil station.

Re: Adliswil get-together

It might not be everybody's taste, but personally I like a beer and a burger at Bären-Grill.

But at short/easy travel Zurich centre is at reach.

EDIT: They Closed

I just googled the Bären-Grill, and Google reckons it's permanently closed! When was the last time you were there? Their website looks pretty pretty "bear" as well ...

They closed about a year ago.

Re: Adliswil get-together

Hey all, thanks for your replies.
Sorry, I have to find out how to get an e-mail once someone responds to the thread .

How does this Friday evening or weekend look for you? I'm flexible - we could do a Friday or Saturday evening get-together, see what kind of activities people would enjoy, and take it from there. What say you?

Re: Adliswil get-together

Saturday at Potbelly's sounds good for me! If you have other suggestions, please let me know in case we have to move - or if people want to eat something slightly greener and healthier.

Re: Adliswil get-together

If you want burgers, I recommend restaurant 'boom' at the Ibis Hotel...



Or for a relaxed atmosphere (but better food than the turkish kebab shop) I suggest Restaurant Buchel.



Both are significantly better for service and quality of food than potbellies...

Re: Adliswil get-together

If it's just a few people, then I'd suggest Boom, but if you want to book a larger group then I'd definitely say restaurant buchel.

Re: Adliswil get-together

Thanks for the suggestions - I'll try and found out how to set a calendar event. Could you please let me know if you get a calendar invite? (I'm really new to this Forum - thanks for your patience ).

[EDIT] I've created an event - could you please let me know if you can see it and confirm you'll be there?

No takers so far, and I unexpectedly have to go abroad this Friday . Canceled the event.

Re: Adliswil get-together

Sorry to hear - it was a great initiative!

I don't live too far and was thinking of joining but have a previous appointment. Which, btw, if you don't have plans for Saturday ... there's a cool theater play performance in Zurich (in english) "A Night in Provence" https://www.zcc.ch/ and can buy tickets at ticketcorner.ch

Now sightly afraid this will be classified by mods as promotion, which I guess technically it is, but I get no commission!!

I would also recommend that you try Meetup.com and post the event there. I find there's a lot more pickup there than in EF which not everyone (gasp!) knows of.

Best of luck in broadening your network.

Re: Adliswil get-together

Thanks "Portuguese" ! Perhaps another time. Thanks for the invite - will fly out of Switzerland tomorrow, so looks like I can't make it. Will also spend more time on Meetup - seems a bit of a wider community.

Enjoy the play!
