One thing that I needed for the BBQ was a grill. Which of course we don't have, but here they have these Einweggrills. Basically a one time use grill. So cool! I've never seen one of these in the States (of course I've never looked for one either). Have you guys ever seen one? So you can basically have a BBQ anywhere! This would be perfect for Tailgating!
So last night we had a BBQ at Zurichhorn Park. I posted something last minute on glocals.com (a local english speaking meet up group website) to see if anyone wanted to join us b/c it was such a beautiful night. We had a great time - it was a small group (only 6) so we really get to know each other. Have I mentioned how much I love hanging out with such an international group? I do. I love it! Countries represented were: Germany, England, Holland, India, and of course the US! At one point we recapped the "swimming fiasco" last weekend with all the naked men and that turned into every one sharing their "War Stories". HI-LAR-I-OUS! The guy from Holland even told a story involving going to the gym, hair dryers, drying below the belt - you see where I'm going with this! So damn funny! I guess us Americans aren't the only ones that are uptight:) For being so conservative the Swiss are TOTALLY fine with nakedness! Who knew?
Not sure why Ehsaan had his butt in the air - but this was our group!:)
After the BBQ we went to the Bar at Lakeside Casino. Very posh with "beds" as some of the seating (kind of like that episode of Sex and the City) and a sand floor. Very cool but I guess I'm to old for that crap b/c after my back wasn't supported for an hour and we had sand in our bed - I had to go home:) Who thought that would be comfortable anyway? Posh? Yes. Comfortable? o. Me Old? Hell yes.:) Anyway, here's a pic of our group on our bed:
Today we are just chilling around the house trying to plan our travels for Italy & Austria/Germany in September. Tonight we are heading to another open air bar/"pool" on the river - the Rimini Bar. We heard it was pretty cool so I'm excited to see it. Then we are headed to the lake to see fireworks for Swiss National Day! I'll have pics tomorrow!
