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
How did the tinder dates go?

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….
Photos, or it never happened!

Thanks for organising the drinks Treverus, this should be repeated and hopefully with a higher turnout.

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

Well, 3 times I'm trying to type in something and I'm falling asleep - it was that exhausting

As you all know , the rule is , what happens in Zuri stays in Züri
but ok for the curious ones I'll just say , this is how the evening started

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97E8On41pvk

and it ended like his

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqOL7LOR6ko

and on the way home
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSvFpBOe8eY

Treverous did a great job reuniting us in that irish-glam-strass-chandelier pub


Next time we decided it'll be drinks and reading the bible
so sorry Curley we could've been singing "boom boom, suje, hajde, hopa,kalasnikov" but you prefer the bible

LOL, how come I get all this attention from you?

Naa, the bible won't lure me into the pub. And from the sounds of it - Caterina Valente vibe? Seriously? - I didn't miss too much either.

I just checked that, to my surprise, she is still alive. Good for her but to be honest, even if I went into reminiscing she wouldn't be a memory of mine. If you know what I mean.

If you quote, quote correctly
<<Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.>>

I take it you see yourself as teacher?
FairDincum, was he a good teacher?

Wasn't she a bit young to sing about those old days when being young?

Curley, what was that comment you made about Valente? "Good for her but to be honest, even if I went into reminiscing she wouldn't be a memory of mine. If you know what I mean."

I didnt get it but sounds interesting are we going to hate that singer now ?

Naaa. (And hating is not a pastime of mine anyway). What I meant was Caterina Valente was more what my parents would have listened to, not me.

The way you reacted to her and that song, seemed as if you had a brawl with her just like with me
