20.10.2021 18:00 to 22:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Kennedys

Slightly short notice, but hopefully we can get a decent crowd and keep some momentum going.

Same location as last time, as it worked quite well. I'll look to book the table based on the number of RSVPs we've got on Sunday.
RSVP'd Yes: 2 (2 members and No guests)
  • eyebeebe - Kinda misses the point if the organiser doesn’t show up.
  • Treverus
RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (2 members and No guests)
  • MidfieldGeneral
  • Ato - Back to work after a few weeks off, need to check a few bits first
RSVP'd No: 6
  • olygirl - Could have come today but can't next week. Thanks for organising
  • ZuriRollt
  • Castro - Hopefully next time
  • Ouchboy
  • vushka - Sounds boring.
  • Axa - flu-like symptoms the day we meet at the bar :(
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: CANCELLED EF Midweek Drinks - The fourth wave

Hello,

Anyone wants a midweek drink? I can call any bar an reserve a table for the next drinks. But where and when?

I have no plans for Christmas travel, so I'd prefer drinks in that period. However, I guess lots of you will not be here. So, what do you think about Thursday Dec 2 and Thursday Dec 9?

Also, Zürich, somewhere else, suggestions? A Christmas market with glühwein?

Once we have an idea of when is possible, I open a new thread with RSVP and all that.

Either date suits me, if the markets are open I'd be happy to spend a few hours drinking something warm in the cold.

Re: CANCELLED EF Midweek Drinks - The fourth wave

2nd Dec would be better for me. Let's see if you can get more people to turn up than I could.

Name suggestion: "Super-spreading some Christmas cheer"

I think we need to up the game with some more unique venues or something… I’d propose the „La Cucaracha“ in Pfäffikon.

Went there after the Seedamm Oktoberfest. They sadly still allow smoking indoors.

Re: CANCELLED EF Midweek Drinks - The fourth wave

December 8 is a holiday in Canton Schwyz so I could organize something in Arth-Goldau.

Never been. Looks dodgy. But always busy.

Well anywhere that is open 22 hours a day at the weekend isn't going to be high brow.

My issue with it is the place is that the inside stinks because of the smoking and the outside is on the main road. You're right though, always busy and I've no idea why.

I don't think Trev was being entirely serious though... Pfäffikon beers would be better in Seerose or at a push Capolinea if there was ever any interest.

So, at least 3 people for Dec 2

One more question for everyone, outdoor (ZH Christmas market) or indoor (Kennedy's Pub) ?

Re: CANCELLED EF Midweek Drinks - The fourth wave

Both? While it’s fun to wander around the markets, if it’s Baltic it gets a bit tiresome after much more than an hour/90 mins

That could be great, if only we could have the day off up here as well!

Agree with this, but on the other hand December can be a horror for booking a table.

It's time I pulled out the winter gear. The coat is out, but it looks like it's time to find my hat and gloves again.

Sadly I work in Zurich so don’t get SZ holidays. Not super keen on travelling that far and back after work, particularly if I’m working the next day (which is the same reason I said I’m not free on the 8th, as I’ll be working from home).

Thank you for offering though. I’d certainly be keen if we can make the timing stars align better.

I dont think this is really an issue this year... many companies are cancelling their christmas events. Gastro is doing pretty badly...

Sounds good. I'll open a new thread after a coffee.
