This month, we are going to have not one, but two get-togethers, as I have decided to plan in an extra daytime meeting for those who either have young children or who don’t like venturing out at night too much! It has been a little tricky booking a venue, but I’ve finally just been given confirmation that we can have the big table in Cafe Collodium (Vordere Metzgergasse), tomorrow afternoon (Sat, 21st March) from 2.30pm onwards. Even though the weather is forecast to turn a bit cooler and wetter, we can gather in the cosy surroundings of Collodium and enjoy a good coffee and a chat.

Our second March meeting will be the usual last-Friday-of-the-month, on 27th March, from 7pm onwards at “Zur Alten Werft”, Brettermarkt 9 (opposite the beer garden at the harbour). The restaurant serves Italian food, with pizzas being their speciality, so don’t eat too much beforehand! For those who don’t know their way around the island so well, you can reach the Alten Werft easily if you walk along the harbour, past the Lindauer Hof Hotel, and carry on straight ahead for another 100 metres or so.
