Mayday! Mayday! (In December, no less.) The chicken-potato curry for the puffs is not spicy enough and I ate up half the frosted sugar cookies.

Sigh. See a couple of you in the afternoon. I hope.
The curry puffs and the cookies were fantastic!

Thanks heaps. Sorry to have missed you.





Thanks Mike too for the wonderful cheeses...

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

Does anyobody actually go to this drinks night? I have to ask because the last 3 times (including last night) I`ve sat at the bar on my own.
I`ve asked the `Are you with the Ef?` and had that old favourite `Well, yes and no` answer several times . . . . which is a polite `No` . . . oder?

Had a great time and those curry puffs were to die for. Yum!

Since Argus brought a well-behaved puppers, next week I'm going to bring one of mine.

Well, basher, you know we do. We have had a few really good nights there. I, unfortunately had a November full of visitors and altogether craziness, so I have not made it the past three weeks or so (last time I was there for drinks was grumpy's bachelor party).

This is why it is an unofficial event. No one really wants the "obligation" of going every week. Sometimes you make it and other times you don't. Sometimes there is a group of 20 of us, other times there is a group three. Such is life...

A lot of times, people will post here if they are heading down. Not always, but a lot of times, so you can use the response here to gauge whether or not it is worthwhile for you to go down. HTH.

Aye, it does - I do realise that it`s unofficial and I`m not wanting to offend anyone by my question. I guess I`m just a bit too enthusiastic to meet people. No worries

As far as I know (which is, uh, very little), three of your puppies are well behaved.

Last night was a bit old skool EF à la Tallacker... with people coming and going with the biggest crowd after 2100. A lot of new-to-Zurich came in with Nanda (and S)- everyone was really cool and easy to talk to.

Well, obviously you didnt ask those 3 noisy women and a lab at the bar. Sorry we missed you.

So the party started after I left? Typical.

Thanks for the curry puffs and cookies, argus. Really a taste of home. Hubby was most amused by the terrier cookies.

All right then. I stand corrected. Three of JLP's pups are badly behaved half the time.

Remind me not to carry them through an airport. Terror cookies!


Basher, the lab was conducting weird experiments. She tried to hynotise you perhaps.

I can't believe it..... just reading through this thread, (with it's usual inuendo) it looks like I missed a great night.

Damn !!!

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

Basher, and to anyone else who's new to these evenings. If it's not obvious who we are, ask at the British cheese stall where the EF bunch is, if I'm not there and whoever is is not sure, or it's after 8, ask Anna who runs the bar (you'll know it's her your talking to as your knees will be rather weak) if Mike or any of his usual crowd is around. She knows us all.

I turned up after 9 last night and had a jolly time with some regulars and some non-EF newbies and had a treat time. I was too tired to tuck into what I thought were the last Curry Puffs but I just found a bag of themwith my name on which I'm munching for lunch. They are fantastic!
