*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Zeigel oh Lac, Rote Fabrik. Wollishofen

It's Metzgeter time! For all the un-initiated, metzgeter is a yearly tradition, when pigs get the chop and restaurants' try to find as many ways of preparing pig bits as possible. It's a grand time for lovers of bluttwurst and liver to meet up and chew some crackling.
There will be other options for people who don't do pork, and for vegitarians, it's called spaghetti napoli.

Did I forget something?

Re: Metzgeter in the Rote Fabrik

Thanks for arranging, i b Deborah, this is a must for all lovers of muscular feasting. Having had Metzgete in many places, the Ziegel au Lac make the best I've had here and the prices are remarkably fair.

If anyone is wondering about joining, I should add this is a traditional meal of every dish known to man from a freshly slaughtered pig. It may sound yucky to the squemish, but once you realise how well it's prepared and taste the subtle complexity of flavours, you'll be sold.

Christmas dinner has nothing on this. Real earthy food. Yummy.

And I've met the pig and he's well up for it.

Really? Another kind of meat? Fish? Or Veggie?

Thanks for the info.

Re: Metzgeter in the Rote Fabrik

If there are any new members who would like to join their first social event on EF, feel free to RSVP and we'll sit you down beside us and encourage you to eat the snout Really, if you've never been to an event, do consider this dinner as it's entertainment as much as a feast and the restaurant is a very casual, fun place to dine.

It would be nice to see lots of new and old faces!

Re: Metzgeter in the Rote Fabrik

It's great to see the interest! I'm having problems with my computer, so I can't log on as often as I'd like but I'll keep an eye on this and post as soon as I know exactly what they'll have for non-pig eaters. There will be at least two alternative menues!

We've 13 confirmed so far and a few maybe babies. I reckon anyone wanting to join this meal should decide presto pronto; as i-b-deborah says "tick tock folks"
