29.01.2010 19:30 to 23:59
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Big Ben West

It's back, due to popular request (and me wanting to host this), the one, the only, the never imitated Weekend Drinks.

This week we will be at Big Ben West, between Escher-Wyss Platz and Hardbruecke. The location is here

I'll be there around 1930. I'll post on Friday what I'm wearing so you should be able to find me.

FAQ:
How to find us?
Look around for english speaking people and ask "EF?" Also, the bar staff may know where we are, but it's not guaranteed. Plus, look at my description that I'll post.

Is there food?
Yes. And there's like 5 kebab places right near by.

Can I come later?
We'll be there for quite a while.

I don't know anybody. Should I come?
Yes. We like new people and we don't bite (too often).

I'm a girl, and I find this pub/bar thing creepy. Should I come?
Yes, the men are generally quite polite and not creepy.

Someone will probably ask another question, so feel free to do so.

TL;DR: Big Ben West, Friday, 1930.

this is not to be a grammar contest in either language nor a test in languages, so that you can speak in English and some German "fillings"

I think a lot of people (including myself) could really benefit from a little Deutsch from someone who understands the challenges of communicating in a different language.

Re: Weekend Drinks [Zurich]

I know they have food there, but has anyone had their fish & chips? (I know, it's sad for the OP to ask this type of question.)

Re: Weekend Drinks [Zurich]

Hi everyone,
Im an erasmus student from london. Just arrived last night and feeling a little lost, especially since I have just found out that my classes are not for another two weeks! Just wanted to know if there where any other students coming to the drinks?

welcome to zurich, EF and weekend drinks
we will have some uni students attending and also some londoners (or at least brits)
Usually a smattering of students. We actually have a good mix of people who show up. Definitely plenty of former students.
