I am trying to motivate myself to get there before midnight. As each time I say maybe or def I am coming in I am either delayed by work or the fight for a parking spot within visual range of that big new building. I feel like I am jinxing the possibility of arriving by posting I will.
You can park down the side of the market on Viaduktstrasse, there's quite a few pay and display spots which are free at night (and they are not patrolled by the police, just the market management and I've never seen them give a ticket). I'm guessing midnight will be too late for most folk here though, if in doubt, call the restaurant number on this link and ask for Anna, she will tell you if any of the English Forum crowd (or Mikes friends) are still here.

You will make it one day

Well I could actually leave now, just finished another 12 hour shift, just marveling at the sound of nothing, and trying to move out of this couch.

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

Great company as usual. Although wish I hadn't decided to try that new blue drink, I don't usually do vodka. Especially after a couple of red wines. Very strong cup of coffee in hand but at least I slept like a log

Yup, biggish crowd and some newbies and EF lurkers. Did you lot manage to tempt any of them to de-lurk last night after I left?

Think it was actually Rangatiranui that drew my attention to the pretty colour! Not that my arm needed twisting too much TBH. Then of course it was all down to Anna's measure of Vodka

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

Who's coming down tonight? I have found some big onions and will try to make some cheddar and onion rolls for market research purposes..... just need to find the malt vinegar.

Edit. Forget that, there was a bit of a cock-up on the onion logistics front, they won't be there until tomorrow.

Onions or not, I'm aiming for around 7pm if the weather does not turn nasty

Going to try. I am in Lausanne all day so only if I get back at a reasonable hour (and I am not dead)...

To ensure a proper fiscal balance within the Viadukt balance sheets I will partake in sufficient imbibing to ensure nobody suffers needlessly from the cash hole in the till that Clare's abstinence may induce.

is she pregnant already?! but you're not married yet!

I'm trying to decide whether to show my sister the "running and drinking" side of Zurich, or just the "drinking" side - with you lot.

simple mathematical formula:
f(run=1) + 1(beer) = f(run=0) + 5(funny blue vodkas)

... and its fun
(however my sister tends to agree with you...)
