Attention Bloggers: Mark Your Calendars!!!

Julie, Sara, and I have been working hard behind the scenes to come up with a date/time/place for a Swiss blogger get-together. We've come up with the following:

When? Sunday, January 14, 2007 (noon-ish)

Where? Zum Braunen Mutz (Brasserie) Barfüsserplatz 10 Basel

Who? Any bloggers (including spouses/kids/friends) who wish to attend.


Ok...Now that that's been agreed upon, we now need to come up with a catchy name for our get-together.

A couple of names have been thrown around. We kind of liked S.Ex.B.O.M.B. (Swiss Expat Bloggers Out to Meet in Basel), but thought we might lure perverts to our fun, little event. A few other ideas were suggested, but nothing really jumped out as being "THE" name.

What do you think?

Post your name suggestions and let us know if you will be attending. Also, let us know if you'll be bringing somebody else along so we can get an idea of how many spots we'll need to reserve at ZBM.

GLH and I will make every attempt to be there. Our move to Zurich is 10 days before the meet-up, so we cannot make any firm guarantees until the week before.

global librarian - hope you and GLH can...

Ok now if this were back in 2004 I would have jumped at the offer...

I'll be doing a meet and greet swim meet that eve...

LOL - love the name already!

Gretchen said...

You already know that we'll be there! We'll be three including the little one, although she doesn't eat much in the way of schnitzel so I suppose she doesn't need a seat reserved.

Thanks for organizing!

The Big Finn said...

Gretchen - GREAT! We're now up to eleven people...maybe thirteen. I'm sure there will be more to come.

S.Ex.B.U.F.F. (Swiss Expat Bloggers Uniting For Fun). No? I'll keep working on it. Can't get the S.Ex out of my mind!

what about the Shramas Glenn's?

CanadianSwiss said...

OX and I will be there, but you knew that already. Now for the name....

The Big Finn said...

TMS - I have no idea what you're talking about.

CS - We're up to about 15. Maybe you can be in charge of going to ZBM a week or so ahead of time to talk to them about reserving a part of the restaurant for us? At the rate we're going...we might need the whole restaurant!

CanadianSwiss said...

TBF- No problem. Do you want to stay downstairs or go up? Just let me know. I'll be taking my laptop with me to Canada.

Can we call ourselves the SEXPATS?? I don't care, I'm going to call myself that. I'm a tentative ...haven't bought a flight back to the old CH yet after xmas.

Hi TBF,

Count me in for the bloggers meeting!

How about this: Bloggers United Meeting, Switzerland or B.U.M.S?

Catchy and a little cheeky if you excuse the pun!

Gee, what an original idea. I wonder where you Swissies got it from? :)

Actually, I'll be in Thailand then or else I probably would have attended too.

By the way, my vote is for S.Ex.B.O.M.B.

Hi TBF,

Somewhere on your blog I left a message that Marco and I can come (and I'm favoring SExBOMB too) but I'm not sure where... just wanted to make sure you counted us "in".
