17:30 could be a bit tight for me as well, but I should be able to be at a place by shortly after 18:00

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

I changed the starting time to 18.00... is it just me or did in turn now all RSVPs disappear? Gotta love this forum software...

Maybe because of your refugee stance?

It looks like they've all vanished, I'll press yes again.

It's not you. It's the software. If you change anything, RSVPs vanish. Super annoying.

There's no way to directly link the event with the thread, so I'm just going to paste a link here, and bump there to let folks know the time changed:

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

Cheers! Well, just received my antigen test results. It's negative, so it means I fly tomorrow out of Europe.

I joined EF some weeks before covid so never met anyone in person. So, more beers for later August, early Sep?

Breaking News. I will be able to attend this event, so if someone wants to meet a real badass, a kickass person like I am then they better show up

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

Alright!

1. I dont dare to update the post with a location as I would once again wipe out the RSVPs...

2. May I ask the 5 maybes to decide by tonight if you are in or out? It makes a difference if I need a table for 5 or 10...

Looking forward to Thursday. Weather looks crap, so it got to be an indoor place. I have honestly not been out a lot lately. However, I do understand that one of the few rules still in place is that indoors people have to be seated in bars (while clubs where people stand around have to enforce the covid certificates)... so its frankly a little more important than at other times to get the number of people right and book a place that fits.

So far do we seem to be rather male, rather interested in decent beer... and me personally not against a decent burger either. So: How about James Joyce? Open to suggestions...

Re: Midweek Drinks - EF Zurich Superspreader 2021

JJ is convenient for me, not sure I‘d say the beer is anything to write home about, but certainly a step up from Talacker.

I havent been around for some years... they used to have Staropramen on tap, which is a step up from pretty much any Swiss lager.

Their website doesn‘t have drinks on it, so can’t see what they have on draft these days.

If you want Czech lager Bar Enge serves Pilsner Urquell, but isn‘t really what I‘d recommend for EF drinks.

If I‘m in Zurich and looking for decent (non-craft) beer, I try to go to places that have Chopfab on tap, which includes Andorra (who have the full range), Simplon and surprisingly Paddy’s. Expensive, but good craft beer is the IBB. Slightly less good, but rather cheaper craft beer the Alehouse.

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.
