Koln Carnival'18 FRI 09 02 Zulpicher Strasse
Wann?Startzeit: Freitag 20:00 (09 Februar)
Endzeit: Samstag 03:00 (10 Februar)
Party Carnival in Cologne's Uni City
Zülpicher Straße between Roonstaße & Dasselstraße
Nothing planned really for the day...
(Ulf will have to work and then join a private thing while Hanna will take care of our flat and CS'ers...)
So feel free to post to the WhatsApp group ( https://chat.whatsapp.com/9ys69hI7lwjHFEXyUN2bYU ) and/or the discussions on the FB or CS Event Pages to suggest something to do for Friday before nighttime.
At some time in the evening Hanna will leave with our CS'ers to get to Zülpicher Straße - or perhaps first some place for dinner... Ulf will join the pack later that night on Zülpicher.
The 2 places we'll most likely be at are the Shamrock Irish Pub ,(Zülpicher Straße 34, Cologne, Germany - http://goo.gl/maps/sDH9B ) or maybe OPPOSITE the "Cuba Bar" (Zülpicher Straße 25, Cologne, Germany - https://goo.gl/maps/R6zV74PN3TH2 )
HOW AND WHERE CAN "LATERCOMERS" MEET US ON FRIDAY NIGHT:
Before 8pm we'll surely not yet have made it to ZÜLPICHER STRASSE.
So you have all day to go to your host's place to drop off your stuff with him OR - if you can't or don't wanna do that - store your stuff at main station (see "G: HYPER MODERN LOCKERS SYSTEM AT COLOGNE MAIN STATION (KÖLN HAUPTBAHNHOF/HBF)" on the Main Event Page "Cologne Carnival 2018 - THU 08 Feb -> TUE 13 Feb" - ☞!ⒻⒾⓃⒹ ⒶⓁⓁ ⒸⓈ&ⒻⒷ-ⓁⒾⓃⓀⓈ ⒷⒺⓁⓄⓌ!☜!) and then contact (anyone of) us to find out where we are...
There are several possibilities to get from Dom/HBF to ZÜLPICHER PLATZ tram stop. (check "GET AROUND IN COLOGNE" at the bottom of the Main Event Page "Cologne Carnival 2018 - THU 08 Feb -> TUE 13 Feb" - ☞!ⒻⒾⓃⒹ ⒶⓁⓁ ⒸⓈ&ⒻⒷ-ⓁⒾⓃⓀⓈ ⒷⒺⓁⓄⓌ!☜!).
From ZÜLPICHER PLATZ tram stop look for the big church there and pass it with that church to your left following the rails going down Zülpicher Straße ( https://goo.gl/maps/uDkVbwQpjPk ) AND leaving behind you the rails on Ringstraße (the ones that go underground northbound right after ZÜLPICHER PLATZ)!
ALTERNATIVELY you can also go to BARBAROSSAPLATZ tram stop and then walk the 400m from there via Roonstr. over to Zülpicher Strasse ( https://goo.gl/maps/PhgxofuPaNT2 )!
We MIGHT try to get into "Oma Kleinmann" pub ( http://goo.gl/maps/KeEqC ), Zülpicher Str. 9, about 250m from ZÜLPICHER PLATZ tram stop down the street on the LEFT, because it's perhaps the most "original" Colognean pub here and the one where they play the most Cologne Carnival music. For those very reasons, however, it's usually super cramped, and we might have to stand in line for very long to get in (hourS! Literally!!!) and thus opt for some other place...
MOST PROBABLY the group will be at the at the "Shamrock" Irish Pub ( http://goo.gl/maps/sDH9B ), Zülpicher Str. 34, about 300m down the street on the RIGHT, OPPOSITE the Cuba Bar (and next to the CubaNA Bar...). That just might be the only pub we can all get in, offering more space than many of the other pubs on Zülpicher Strasse!!!
Or perhaps the Cuba Bar ( https://goo.gl/maps/R6zV74PN3TH2 ), Zülpicher Str. 36, 350m down Zülpicher Straße, ON THE LEFT (diagonally opposite the "Shamrock" - with the Che Guevara sign above - NOT THE "CubaNA Bar" next to the "Shamrock"!!!) - we ended up there many times in the last 12 years, in spite (or perhaps because) of the fact, that they only play very little Cologne Carnival music, especially later at night!
In order to find out where we are you might need to try and contact anyone of us first - THOUGH getting hold of one of us might be tricky and take a while:
Try the WhatsApp group and/or check the posts and discussion threads on the CS & FB Event pages to see if anyone who signed up for this event added his mobile number there AND ALSO (if you can) CHECK THE DESCRIPTION HERE AGAIN FOR ANY LAST-MINUTE UPDATES (that I might even add after the "event started") BEFORE YOU COME TO JOIN US!
Also read "C: COMMUNICATIONS" on the Main Event Page "Cologne Carnival 2018 - THU 08 Feb -> TUE 13 Feb" - ☞!ⒻⒾⓃⒹ ⒶⓁⓁ ⒸⓈ&ⒻⒷ-ⓁⒾⓃⓀⓈ ⒷⒺⓁⓄⓌ!☜ !)!!!
If you stored your stuff at main station's automatic locker machines, then you can always pick it up at night when you go home. THAT WILL BE MOST PROBABLY AFTER MIDNIGHT - so IF YOU CANNOT use the automatic locker machines but have to use the counter at the Douglas perfumery instead, then also consider bringing your stuff to some other place for at that counter you can only pick it up the next morning...
MAKE SURE YOU'RE WEARING YOUR COSTUME BEFORE MEETING UP WITH US - YOU DON'T WANNA LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE IDIOT, DO YOU???
IF YOU INTEND TO TAKE PART in this event then PLEASE JOIN THE WhatsApp group ( https://chat.whatsapp.com/9ys69hI7lwjHFEXyUN2bYU ) AND/OR POST YOUR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER HERE so that those who like (or have) to join us later have more than just my number to try and call in case they cannot find us!!!
Using (number) words rather than actual numbers - at least for some of them (e.g.: Plus Four Nine 179 One 0912 Three Eight) or writing the number backwards (e.g.: 832190197194+ ) OR BOTH (e.g.: Eight 32 One Nine 019 Seven 19 Four Plus) are ways to prevent at least net crawlers from detecting your number....
