October Get-Togethers

We have a couple of opportunities for a bit of bonding this month, at two events to which you and your loved-ones are warmly-invited: our Saturday Morning Coffee Club this weekend and our October Night-Out at the end of the month. The Coffee Club is planned for Saturday (14th), 11am onwards at Cafe Schreier (http://schreier-insel.de/) on the harbour, with Natalie as your “hostess with the most-est”. The October Night Out will be on Friday, 27th October, from 7pm onwards, at Bar Barista (https://www.barbarista-lindau.de/), Marktplatz. No special clothing required for either of these events, unless you fancy getting in the Halloween … Continue Reading →

September Meet-ups

Our Coffee Club meeting this month will be this coming Saturday (16th), from 11am onwards, in Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz, http://www.grossstadt-lindau.de/ It looks as if the weather won’t be nice enough to sit outside, so tables are booked inside. They have really nice breakfasts on offer and there’s lots of choice for vegetarians and vegans too, so I hope that lots of you will decide to come along and have a chat after (or before) you do your weekend shopping. For all those that are new to the area, the farmers’ market at Marktplatz (by the two big churches) is on … Continue Reading →

August meet-ups

I hope that this finds you all happy, well and enjoying the holidays, even if we’re not enjoying the optimal summer weather right now. To be honest it feels downright autumnal at the moment and I’ve had to dig out a pullover from the cupboard already  Hopefully things will take a turn for the better soon, in time for our Coffee Club meeting in a few days time. Natalie has made a couple of little changes this month, to give us a mini-break ‘abroad’, with the meeting going over the border into Austria and moving from its usual Saturday … Continue Reading →

May meet-ups

With the cooler temperatures that we have at the moment, Natalie, the hostess of the Coffee Club, has booked tables for the forthcoming Coffee Club meeting in the snug surrounds of Café Vogler, Inselgraben, for Saturday, 13th, from 11am onwards. If you fancy a restorative coffee, tea, hot chocolate or maybe something a little stronger, after doing your shopping, then come along for a chat and a laugh. Our evening meeting this month will be taking place on Friday, 26th May at “37°”, Lindau harbour (where the quiz night was held in January). It’s particularly convenient for anyone coming by … Continue Reading →

April Events

Spring has sprung, nature is awakening after the long winter and we can start to enjoy the longer days and warmer temperatures. For many of you, the Easter holidays are poised to begin, so I know that many will already be getting ready to travel over the next few days. However, for all those who are in the area, our Saturday Morning Coffee Club has a meeting planned for this coming Saturday (8th) which will take place at Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz. Natalie has booked tables from 11am onwards, as usual, and if the weather is nice (which it looks as … Continue Reading →

February events

Now for news of our forthcoming meet-ups this month. Our Saturday Morning Coffee Club is being held this coming Saturday (11th), at Café Più, Maximilianstrasse, from 11am onwards. Café Più is halfway down the street, opposite the flower stall. Natalie is your hostess, and is looking forward to welcoming you. This meeting is proving particularly popular with the families in the group – please feel free to bring along your kids and dogs! – and all those who don’t enjoy venturing out so much in the winter evenings, when it’s cold and dark. Combine it with a visit to the … Continue Reading →

January Get-Together and Annual Quiz Night

Our next meeting is on Friday, 27th January, at 7pm, and we have the ‘Königinnensaal’ of the café/bar “37°” (http://www.37grad.eu/) booked just for us, at the very end of Lindau harbour, around the corner from the train station entrance. We will be having our annual quiz night, with our quizmaster, Mike Corrigan, who has once again put together some fiendishly-tricky questions! For those of you who have not yet attended one of our quiz nights, you are able to take part either solo, or together with one other person. We will collect a modest entrance fee of a few Euros … Continue Reading →

December Pre-Christmas Get-Together

Thank you to all of you who came along to our November meeting at the opening night of the Hafenweihnacht. It is one of my favourite events of the year – I find the atmosphere so magical – and it was especially nice to see so many of your happy faces. I have organised our December Night-Out for this coming Thursday – 22nd December – from 7pm onwards at Cafe Collodium, Vordere Metzgergasse 16. I have only booked the large table so far, as I’m not sure how many of you are away and how many are still going to … Continue Reading →

November Night-Out

At the end of November, we traditionally meet at the opening night of the Lindauer Hafenweihnacht (http://www.lindau.de/dossier/lindauer-hafenweihnacht), and this year will be no exception. The Christmas market has become somewhat of an institution in our winter programme and our meeting point will be on Friday, 25th November, at 7pm, at Eiscafé Schreier’s Glühweinstand. The reason that I have planned it for 7pm rather than an earlier time, is that I will be working late that day and probably won’t be back home until at least 6pm. However, there’s nothing to stop you all from heading there as early as you … Continue Reading →
