If you are unsure where we are gathered just ask Grumpy Grapefruit at The British Cheese Centre and he will point you in the right direction. As well as tempting you with delicious cheese :-)

This week, my mom is in town with her best friend, and thus, we are definitely stopping by on Thursday. We will be early though (which doesn't mean we won't stay late). Hopefully we will see (many of) you then.
Everyone should bring their Mum and Dad to these events

Sadly, I won't be around this week.

Berlin must have it's evil way with me.

Yeah, I'm sorry, but this trip has been booked in for a while now.

A friend of mine is currently visiting from home too. Will see if she's up for it and bring her along. I need to stock up on my cheese anyway

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

Hi guys! I was thinking about dropping by this Thrusday after work (if I manage to find the place). Would you guys mind having an extra girl passing by the cheese stand?

Of course not. We will be at the cheese stand for a while as my mom wants to "experience" grumpy's amazing-ness... Just come by and we will all have a few drinks together.

Tram 4 (towards Zürich, Werdhölzli) or 13 (towards Frankental) from Zurich HB.
Get down at Dammweg.
From the direction the tram is going...its left...under the bridge (its actually the bridge itself...)

See you there.

Thanks Ashishshah,

In addition to this post, note that the front of the Viadukt Markthalle "closes at 8pm", however the RESTAURANT is open for much later. (where we are all at the bar)

If you arrive after 8pm, just follow the building around to the back enterance and the Restaurant is still open.

The bar is obvious, and so is a congregation of loud drunk English speaking people.

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

I was checking google maps, and I got this:


http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Viaduk...65.742187&z=15

I don't have a number, but is this the train bridge recently renovated and turned into little stores? Is it safe to think it's easy to find after getting out in hardbrücke train station and walk around the ZKB building? (I have seen bookstores and furniture, but no cheese...)

Easier way.

Yes, that's the bridge alright. But the markthalle is a bit further along the bridge.
The cheese stand is inside the markthalle and not a standalone shop....not yet atleast.

Honestly,
If you don't know the Escher-Wyss area, getting lost is a possibility.

It's also a fair walk from Hardbrücke, so I'd suggest taking the train one stop further to HB.

The Hardbrücke stops usually pull in on Platform 21-24, so walk RIGHT TO THE BACK of the platform and exit the station there (Bahnhoff sihlquai or something).

Both the trams (4 and 13) exit from there, and both head to Dammweg.

You can't get lost on the tram, and it will be about the same time as walking.


If you are still hell bent on walking..... follow the Hardbrücke bridge (walking under it) until you get to the tram lines (past the Abaton kino etc).

Dammweg is one stop back from the bridge (towards the city).


You seriously can't miss the Viadukt from there.

There is a dirty great train line heading over the road which makes up the entire front of the Viadukt Markthalle (not to mention 6ft white letters saying VIADUKT over the door)

Hope that helps
