Rotating Game Night

Hi everyone, gaming on Wednesdays has been quite successful until now. I wanted to try other days in the week in order to give more people the opportunity to join. 

I will rotate the day but the time and location will stay the same. For now i'll rotate between tuesday and thursday (one week will be tuesday, the next wednesday and so on).

I look forward to seeing everyone! :-)

    Continued...

    I find it shocking that they cant simply take the money as they bring things out. The waiter can just have the wallet (like the rest of waiters in this country) and take the money straight away, it's not rocket science!

    Anyway, dont worry, we didnt burn any bridges. But I am on the look out for another place. In the meantime, I suggest people pay, and really force them to take your money as you buy things. Do no put things on a tab.

    Yes, I am aware of the difficulty in finding a location, that is why we stayed quiet and took it on the chin, they dont even know that we were upset... they have us by the balls...

    I did suggest that they should not allow for people to put stuff on a tab, they have had this problem so many times surely they would have learnt by now. We are a meetup group and not a group of "friends" per say (as in there are lots of new people, etc.). To this suggestion I got the following response: We are too busy for that and we dont have enough staff, and that is when he said, if this continues happening we wont be welcome anymore.

    This must though be the first time I have heard of the mistake being on thier side.. Often one of our group is at fualt. I am dissappointent that we no longer have a good rapport with one of my favorite places to play games. There are not many places where you can use most of the seats in a restaurant for 6 hours to play games. We have had so many of our group forget to pay when they leave that I can see that this time, though it seems to be their mistake, they thought it happened again. As an orginizer I can tell you people It is hard to find places to play.

    Oh my gosh... I'm reading all the message only now. I had a bottle of water for CHF 5.20 (next time I will take a tab-water :-) I paid btw, I remember because the waiter was looking at me waiting for the usual tip... to be honest guys, I've been couple of time in this place and I think that is a bit "in the middle of nowhere" and a bit expensive... and now that I read about CHF 10.- problem... to regular clients... and even say that next time you/we are not welcome anymore... helloooo! I will do my best to find a better, different, cosier and closer place ;-)
    ciao ciao and see you soon guys!

    Someone forgot to pay for a Schneider Weisse, so Philip and I had to pick up the tab. Please remember to settle your bill before you go.

      Ah, so not only were they being rude to us, they were also making us pay for their own mistakes. Kinda makes me want to skip the F&B next time :(

      Funny that, coz most places treat regular customers really well, especially when these regular customers bring in like 20 people. Sure, not everyone eats, but everyone drinks. Oh well, maybe we should try to host the midweek meetup at someones house, I can host Wednesdays as long as someone else hosts Tuesdays, Thursdays, and keep it rotating so it doesn't feel like too much for one host. Also put a limit of attendants...

    I won't be putting my food and drinks on tab anymore, so if I'm in the last group they won't be able to sting me like they did to you. In any case, the manager seems to think our group is more effort than it's worth.

    Just spoke to Mike, pretty sure it wasnt one of us. Me, Mike, Gian, and Robin didnt order that. Dont recall celso ordering that too. It was probably ordered by a guy who sat previously at your first table. Probably happened when the waitress changed shift....

    I actually wonder if they make a mistake? Unless one of you have finished the Weissen before I arrived, I don't recall anyone having that!

    Well, a very disappointing evening to a fun game night. Someone forgot to pay for a 10 franc beer, so the waitress said the last person is responsible for the tab. She proceeded to forcefully keep the change of an unwilling person when they were settling their own bill. Then the manager said that if there continue to be problems with the tab, we won't be welcome anymore. I said they should just make people pay as they order, but apparently they don't have time for that (how crazy to expect that kind of service right?). Anyway, the prices of the f&b are steep for a pub in the middle of nowhere. If we have to continue going there, so be it, but I'll see if I can find another place. I recommend people take small change so you don't end up paying for other people, and please make sure the items you pay for are removed from the bill and that you pay for everything you consumed!
