Beware, do not tell Anna to make something with Vodka and "not too sweet". Ouchy.

That Pork & Apple pie was the best pie i've had in 2 yeears. Tried the Steak & Guinness one there and wasn't too impressed, but the Pork & Apple made love to my mouth.

Mrs bigblue had one of the Steak & Guinness pies and was also disappointed, had a lot of gristle in

I've seen Annas vodka and rum mixed drinks and the effect they had one Saturday afternoon so will happily stick with Dunkle Bier.

I popped in about 10.30 on my way home and missed you all but Anna did say a couple came in from St Gallen looking for us and said "oh, you must be Anna". She's rather amused that her fame is spreading.

The "pasty" was none too flash too. Why can't they just do normal pies??

You should have told me about her mixing! I think we were there later than 2230, we were fashionably late.

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

I talked to Anna (the bartender) and she said she didn't recognize anyone from EF, so we ended up leaving around 915ish...not so much luck for my wife and me, the newcomers. Hopefully we can catch up with you all at a later date.

Yes, Anna mentioned this when a couple of us arrived at 10pm after another event. Apologies, but the event is unofficial and although normally draws a large crowd, it did not last night.

I would suggest you both come to the following official drinks for us to welcome you:

Züri Friday Drinks

Sorry you missed the big crowd, I will be around next Thursday and will try to rustle up the stragglers by promising a free cheese buffet at my stall.

The small r and the two dots after that made it as clear as cream soup.



(DB is Deutscher Bank, I would've thought.)

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

So grumpy has promised cheese nibbles, seeingbee has returned from gallivanting across three continents, and I am bringing two friends along that are visiting me for Turkey day (which just happens to be tomorrow)...

Anyone else going to be "popping by"? I might even bring a (small) batch of brownies if bribes make the numbers go up.

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

I'm catering for an apero at the oyster bar for a group of about 40 "internationals" from 6.30 - 8.00 so it'll be a buzzy atmosphere. I'll be sure to invite some of the errrr more interesting ones to the Naughty Boys Corner late on.

And yes, there will be free cheesy nibbles at my cheese stall for EFers and a bottle opener will be handy for the Sam Smiths (Rappi Gold, Harvest Hop and Big Black are also in stock now)

Re: (Unofficial) Thursday Night Drinks at the Viadukt Market

er...bill, I think everyone was referring to Thursday in their above posts.

I'm skipping this. My tummy is acting all weird. So I need to be good in order to be in tip-top shape for Lucern on Friday.

I was referring to Thursday, but there is an unofficial, unofficial Thursday warm up drinks starting about now. Sophie on the Pie Stall is trying to lead me astray with beer and white wine....

I couldn't possibly answer that one. But actually Sophie was just trying to get me to fall off the wagon, it didn't work.
