29.09.2021 18:00 to 23:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Kennedys

Right, this time I'll try a little more advance planning! We'll try ZH this time, all welcome, even Aarau people.
I'm thinking Kennedys due to it's proximity to the train station.
I'd like to book a table a few days before the Wednesday depending on the planned numbers.
RSVP'd Yes: 9 (9 members and No guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 7 (7 members and No guests)
  • amogles - unlikely I will be in ZH then, but will try to come if I am, and the EF still exists
  • V__
  • pilatus1 - If i haven't been purged
  • user137
  • FunnyBone - I might bring my white socks - they go well with the rüebli flavored boredom.
  • krlock3 - maybe
  • Elu
RSVP'd No: 7
  • olygirl - Gotta work
  • komsomolez - Shame, leaving for holidays that day
  • st2lemans - "The drinks are on, mes chéries." Sounds kinky!
  • ZuriRollt - Doubt that I would be welcome, but have fun. Please someone make a toast on my behalf to many, thankful years of support through EF. Couldn’t have made it without all the advice on here. Tried to join first around 2005 (can’t remember exactly), then...
  • Ouchboy
  • vushka - Doubt it.
  • greenmount - Can't make it, but I'd have liked to meet a few of you irl. Have fun!
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Thankfully, you didn't mention the goats in this context
The goats I rescued from Afghanistan are already very sore from all the abuse they got from the Taliban goons. I would never do that to them

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

Dear all, I will push to get myself there for 1800.

Looking forward to seeing a few heads for a beer/wine/beverage of choice.

Drop out the back end of the train (the arse points to Aargau &#129315 and take take the stairs signposted towards Europaallee. Google (Apple/Bing/etc) maps will get you from there.

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

I'd like to say thank you to those who came out for a beverage. We shall attempt this again next month.
Numbers are slowly climbing.

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

Good to see you all and thanks Ato for arranging. An increasing number, but it would have been good to meet a few of the others who had put themselves down as yes or maybe.

I've agreed to take on the mantle of organising the next one. There won't be (m)any changes though - if it aint broke, why fix it.

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

My maybe was more of a maybe+.

I came into the pub hoping I could identify the group. I didn't know this pub was so huge and so popular. It had so many large groups that I failed to identify the Efers, so...I left.

I might be braver next time.

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

Why not tell the staff at the bar "if anybody asks for English Forum ...." or if that's not wanted, "if anybody asks for reservation for Ato ...." as Ato (or which ever EF-handle organized the meeting) is still anonymous?

When I got there I asked for a table of 10 that was booked for 18:00, that seemed to work.

That's what was done. I'm surprised that the greeter let FunnyBone in without saying who they were meeting. That wouldn't have been possible when I arrived around 1815. I said I was looking for some friends sat in the corner by the window outside and the greeter said oh you mean English Forum organised by <Ato's real name>.

Re: EF Midweek drinks - Superspreader Mk.III

I told the people at the door to mark EF or englishforum beside my name after Midfield turned up and pointed out my error.

My head thought I was giving thanks but my finger hit the groan button. I’ve remedied the post. My apologies.

I arrived around that time, too. You must have been one of the two persons in front of me. I didn't wait long enough for the server to get to me. Well, like I said, maybe next time.
