Im coming to Zurich! Want to meet up?

So on the 31st of May which is a Tuesday, I will be in Zurich for the day (and night)

Will be staying in a hotel at Technoparkstrasse.

Is it a good area or do you recommend the other side of the tracks?

Anyway as I have a whole day to waste and no idea what to do is anybody willing to offer any advice?

Or even better, organize a meetup! Would be fun and I'll create a thread under Social Events. Anybody knows of a good meeting place?

Technostrasse is near enough to the centre to be a good location and there are also some bars/restaurants in the area.

I'm sure there are some of us who are always up for a drink...

Phew, just released from my kitchen duties so sorry for the late answer

Well seeing as you are staying where you are, think probably the best place to meet would be the famous Viadukt, we could have our Thursday night on a Tuesday. The restaurant there is good as well.

You're arriving in Zurich on a Tuesday. Maybe you want to partake in the famous Zurich Meat Market Tuesday!

Seriously Gata, Technopark is just 10 mins walk from the Viadukt. If you do arrange a get together here, I'll lay on a cheesy apéro for you.
