Just A Reminder...

What?: Bloggers' Basel Get-Together

When?: Sunday, January 14th, 2007; Noon - ?

Where?: Zum Braunen Mutz (ZBM) - Barfüsserplatz, Basel

Who?: Bloggers, blogger spouses/children/friends, and anybody else who wants to show up

Why?: You're not skiing due to the lack of snow, so why not?

ZBM has agreed to reserve two large tables for our group of 20-25 people (thanks Canadian-Swiss) on the condition (...those Swiss rules again!) that we actually eat something and don't just drink. So, come with an appetite. I've checked with some of you, and it appears that most of us are planning on eating...so, no problems there.

Don't worry about it if you can't make it exactly at noon. Just get there when you can. Mrs. TBF and I will be there at noon to hold the tables. I'll be the tall guy with the chrome dome and the temporary beard. Mrs. TBF will the little cute one with the long curly hair (unless she decides to pull it back).

We're looking forward to seeing you all there!

So i was thinking, on the nametags we should put our real names, our blog titles, and for the spouses or people who refer to themselves by something other than their name also that. Ex, The Husband would get a nametag that said that as well as his "real" name.

I guess I'd better get some bigger name tags.

Well Andi is coming up from Ohio this weekend, so let's see you're 7 hours ahead of you so if we're going to have a cocktail with you that means we'll have to get up at 5:00 am...hmmm....I don't think that'll happen, well unless we stay up all night and party, which may happen!

Have fun!!!!

My pleasure. I got your e-mail and will just say that most of the guests will be eating. We'll be there early, too.... and hungry!

BTW: Should I make the final reservation on a specific name? Like TBF, Bloggers, or something like that?

We'll be there too and try to eat even though we won't be hungry at noon- we'll be just barely up!

Just came across your blog through In search of dessert (aka Jessica Brogan)... How often do you guys do expat/blogger get-togethers? I'm going to be moving to Basel in February and would love to join in next time.
