Hey I'm not able to suggest any place because I'm still new in Potsdam!
Naja! See you then in 11-line!?

Saludos para todos! :)

Posted January 11th, 2013 - 3:12 am by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
I want to join since I am new in Potsdam but at what time are u going to meet ??

Posted January 11th, 2013 - 10:33 am by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Ah, Judith is totally right - there is still table tennis on Wednesdays. So I´m not sure that all of us are gonna find a place to sit, because usually it´s very cowded and I don´t think that we can sit all together... So maybe another plave would be better? I´ve never been in Bar Gelb (Charlottenstraße), but I´d like to try - how do you think?

ok... anyone else has any suggestion?

Posted January 12th, 2013 - 9:05 am by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
In the beggining we used to meet in Hafthorn - how about that? Or again in Bar Rückholz and this time we call before so that it´s hopefully gonna be a bit easier with the space... ?

I don't like Bar Gelb. And Bar Rückholz is a smokers bar after 22:00 right?

Hafthorn sounds good, Pub a la Pub too. I was gonna suggest the Waschbar.

Wow it really is a difficult decision this time :-)!

Ok, here are my 2 cents.

Rueckholz is a cozy Kreuzberger bar with a killer cocktail maker. They have a free kicker table. It is allowed to smoke there after 22u.

Waschbar is laundry/bar place where you can eat and use the free wireless. Music is popular rock from all ages. The atmosphere is Californian. Smoking only allowed when the kitchen closes and when everyone is done with their laundry, which was from all time I was there, after midnight.

Pub-a-la-pub is a student bar. It's only purpose is to have as many students in there as possible, which can make it loud at times, but the atmosphere is always lively. Drinks are half price for students. No smoking inside, unless you're stuck there with the people cleaning up.

KuZe is a student bar with a free kicker table. Prices are student prices. A lot of space. No smoking inside.

Hafthorn has the best burgers in town (imho). Prices are decent, service is lightning fast. Music is popular metal, rockabilly and rock. Ususally playing with the accompanied live DVD. No smoking inside.

Bar Gelb. Well, I only was there before they moved to Charlottenstr. But then service was extremely slow. Music sucked, but they put on anything I asked them to :) No smoking inside.

Zeppelin Sports Bar has a pool table (5e/hour if I remember correctly). They have Guinness :D Usually populated with the local sports addicts, which gives it a bit of a rundown atmosphere. No smoking inside.

OnTheRocks is a metal/rock bar. No smoking inside and have excellent cocktails.

Craddock for the people into lounge music or whatever happens to be playing from an ipod. Have as good burgers as Hafthorn. Adn the waiters are really nice to look at.

Olga is the tiniest bar I know of in Potsdam. Prices are supr cheap, smoking everywhere. Full of lefties and punks.


Personal choice: Waschbar. You've had to have been there at least once.
Second choice: Pub-a-la-pub. Cheap drinks!

Posted January 12th, 2013 - 12:25 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Oh, I'm also totally in for Hafthorn. You cannot beat their super fast service.

Posted January 13th, 2013 - 9:38 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Since no one said anything against the Hafthorn yet let's meet there. Do you guys think we need to make reservations? Last time i was there it was pretty crowded!

I will try to create an event here on cs...

Posted January 13th, 2013 - 9:52 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Ok, that took a while to figure out. At first i couldn't find how to create an event, so i started a poll instead. Does anyone know how to delete that?

Hello all!

Sorry for my answer delay! I will come for sure to the first CS meeting of the year!

I don't want to be annoying, but I think this bar will be crowded for sure! I've never seen it empty, there is always quite a lot of people. So... I think it is going to be the same for this Wednesday... and as it is winter the terrace is not available... I think we should definitely book in advance (if it is possible), although for the moment there are not so many surfers registered for the event, so... maybe there is not need to book it. I don't know...

I would propose myself to book it, but my German is not good enough yet and I don't feel comfortable to do so :((

See you on Wednesday!

Posted January 14th, 2013 - 5:55 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Thanks for reminding me Janina. I booked a table for us. So if anyone will be there before me, there is a table booked for 15 people on the name of "Katharina".

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Posted January 14th, 2013 - 6:04 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Didn´t read Katharinas message in time and rebooked my table;)!

hey Anne,


the meeting will be on wedensday... I can join earlier, that would be nice and better for me :)

Posted January 14th, 2013 - 10:35 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Hey Tareq,

now I´ll be there at 20:00 - so see you then:)!

Posted January 15th, 2013 - 6:53 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Hello, i'll be there too, with a friend. CU ;-)

Posted January 16th, 2013 - 7:45 am by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Hey there, I'll be joining you. That'll be my first CS meeting, kind of exciting:)
До встречи, Johannes

Posted January 14th, 2013 - 5:56 pm by from Potsdam, Germany (Permalink)
Hey everybody,

I just made a reservation in Hafthorn:)!! It wasn´t possible for 20:00, only for 19:30, so I´ll be very happy if some of you who can will join me already in 19:30 so that I won´t have to wait alone:). I said we´d be 10 people - it´s always hard to guess how many will come, because many people don´t join the event on CS... But that doesn´t mean that I don´t want those to join us:D! Please feel everybody sincerely invited! Only don´t srew me if we get a place problem;).

See you übermorgen!!
