Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

I'm not a beer drinker , only wine or G&T If one of you are coming by car where do you suggest I should park? I know I can look at the map but a good advice is alway better.

I was considering both, but with the current requirement that all people have to be seated... do I think they are a bit on the small side for a group trying to have a chat. Anyways: Its going to be JJ this time around, we can discuss thursday what to do next time...

I reserved a table for 6 as of right now. I tried 8 to be sure but for some mysterious reason does the website only allow up to 6 or otherwise prompts you to call them... which I will do if more people decide to join.
It was just a general FYI, as your new again in town, rather than a proposal. I agree neither of them particularly lend themselves to group chat and I wouldn‘t presume to inflict Swiss craft beer prices on anyone without checking first!

At that time of night, your best bet is probably on the surrounding streets… Pelikanstrasse, Nüschelerstrasse, St. Petersstrasse, Talacker. You might need to move it after a couple of hours though. Otherwise, any of the Parkhäuser will gladly take a large proportion of your disposable income.

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

thx. eyebeebe
I was looking for a Parkhauser that's really close to the bar so I dont have to stare at my phone-gps and I dont care how much it costs..
If I start looking for parking in one of the streets around I might get too far away then it'll take me ages to find the bar

I guess the nearest and most easy to find one would be Jelmoli.

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

Hi Treverus


I was hoping to come along to this, but now am waiting to hear about the timings for a meeting in Zug on Thursday. It's likely to be in the afternoon, so...



Sorry to be so unreliable.


Regards




Ian

It‘s impressive that someone who has been a member for over 10 years and has over 30,000 posts hasn‘t figured out how to set up a social event.

oh my god, I just realised how I better fix 2-3 tinder dates at a nearby table because it's very possible I'll get kicked out of our group

I'm guessing a message through here? Now I'll need to remember my password to lo in with my phone again. Could you not just wear a silly hat?

Probably a hangover from corona restrictions?
Have fun tonight.

Alright. I arrived. Nice table and the large beer arrived within one minute… if there is last minute interest do I think we can squeeze someone in….
