This event is organised in collaboration with ESN Zürich, and Polana.

The entry entitles you to unlimited tasting: drink as much as you want. Some snacks will be provided, too.

Update: The last drink collection took place on 23 April. Purchasing a ticket is now the only way to attend the event.

Show the info anyway

We will need a lot of help putting together the alcohol. If you bring drinks from Czechia or Slovakia, apart from being treated a big hero, you will also get in for free.

  1. Purchase traditional wine, beer or soft drinks from Czechia or Slovakia, either in stores or at the airport (for a reasonable price), and keep the receipt.

    See the following table for a list of bottles that we are missing, or contact the organisers to coordinate your purchase.

    See this page for the duty-free limits.

  2. Please submit this form with the list of bottles you are bringing (this will help with planning).

  3. Bring the bottles on one of the following days:

    • Wednesday, 17 April between 13:00 and 14:00 next to CAB 55.3 (preferred)
    • Tuesday, 23 April between 15:00 and 16:00 next to CAB 55.3 – message Juraj when you come
    • (talk to Juraj if you want to arrange a different time)

We will collect the receipt and reimburse you the full price of the alcohol by Twint.

If you are bringing at least 4 litres of alcohol, you will get in for free. Otherwise, you will get a discount of 5 CHF per delivered litre, which you can apply by purchasing the ticket when delivering the bottles.

You will be put on a guest list, so you don’t need to purchase a ticket at the door when you present a photo ID.


After the official end of the event at 10pm, we will move to a nearby bar or an open space (depending on the weather) for an afterparty.


  • Insurance and sensible behaviour are the responsibility of the participants.
  • By attending, you agree that pictures can be taken of you and used internally for CSSZ purposes (for example, on the website, Instagram, etc.)
  • We will strive to provide overly enough drinks and snacks, but ultimately, consumables are provided only until stocks last.
  • We generally do not offer refunds. If you cannot attend, try to find a replacement and let the event organizers know of the name change.
  • It’s advisable to eat dinner before attending this event.


We are still looking for a few volunteers for the following roles:

  • Door/entrance
  • Serving the tables
  • Buildup, Cleanup

If you are willing to help, email Juraj (juraj.micko@cssz.ch) stating your availability and preference.
