All right, since no one else seems to have an opinion I'm gonna set up a plan and that's what we're gonna do. Ha.
Sunday should work as set out below, saturday is still mostly in the air, awaiting some more info from Yeti, Rieke and Steffi.

Friday: I'm not there, so you people have fun.

Saturday: if all goes according to plan, I'll arrive around 13:15 in Neuffen, having picked up Joost along the way in Nürtingen.
Rest is in the air.

Sunday:
We go to Stuttgart by train after Breakfast, We visit the Landesmuseum and the Old Castle were it is located, taking a break to have a bit of lunch somewhere. In the afternoon, we can switch to The Kunstmuseum or Staatsgallerie, as both are nearby or stay in the Landesmuseum if there is more we want to see. It's of also possible to split up, since everything is quite close together. The default choice is the Kunstmuseum, btw. ;). For dinner, we go to the http://www.ochsn-willi.de/, where we'll have semi expensive swabian food. (They even seem to have an ok vegetarian selection, more than just side dishes at least). After that we find a place to have a drink or more. There seem to be lots of place round the area, but we should in general anticipate higher prices.
The last train to Neuffen goes at about 00:48 and it seems to be about 10 minutes from the Schloßplatz to the central station, so we should have ample time. If anyone with local knowledge knows of nice places to go drinking, I'm open to suggestions.

In central Stuttgart, you only get expensive yuppie bars and stuff. One pub I found rather nice is called Bonnie and Clyde, but I don't remember where it is. The Rockfabrik, which is an old rock/metal club in Ludwigsburg, is closed on Sundays, except for concerts. You might want to try the Universum, which is rather central near the Schlossgarten, but which is also more club than pub. During the year I lived there, I found Stuttgart rather frustrating when it comes to going out.

edit: But since Esslingen is on your way to Neuffen, you could stop there and visit the Eisbär, which is a rather recommendable rock pub. Esslingen's right next to Stuttgart, so no big deal there.

I have to correct myself, the last actual train from stuttgart to neuffen leaves at 22:22, not 23:48, which kind of makes the whole point of having a drink in stuttgart moot. In that case I propose going by car, if that is manageable (should be as things are looking now) and maybe go to that Eisbär bar in Esslingen. If we're not spending all Saturday evening at Yeti's, we could go there then, too. And just hang around in Stuttgart until 22:00 on Sunday, then head back to Neuffen.

Did anyone actually talk to Yeti recently? :D :P
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

I did. And in fact, it's bad news. She said that she is not doing too well and currently in a lot of stress concerning her ex and child care and financial and family matters and that she's sorry, but she won't be able to host us or join us. Sadish, but can see her situation. She did ask me to say hi to everyone.

But this also means that we can finalize our plans for Saturday. Since the main reason to be back in Neuffen early is gone and Rieke can just as well join us in Stuttgart, I say that after checking in and having lunch (a candidate would be the Steinach Stuben in Neuffen, round the corner from our restaurant), we head to Esslingen and spend the afternoon in the historical city center having coffee, looking at stuff, maybe visiting the local City Museum or, as I would like to, . I'll look for some place to have dinner, but maybe Steffi can give us some advice and then we'll go to the Eisbär Metal Bar in Esslingen.

Sunday is Stuttgart and we'll see if we find anything nice in the city or if we head back to the Eisbär in the evening.

They would've had Swabian wine there, even the one from the hill we've been up to, the one with the fortress ruin. I'm sorry for all the closed restaurants, as well for the stress and chaos I caused.
But after all - at least to me - it became a wonderful afternoon!
Thank you all sooo much!!!

Guys and girls, i must say: It was AWESOME! :mrgreen: Even if i was for just one night and a few hours before and after, it was a great fun! Thanks so much! And i already miss you...

I'm sorry that i didn't had the time to walk with you up to the Hohenneuffen or around in Stuttgart going from one museum to teh next, but my little pony needed me. And i can say, he is safe and sound in his new stable making friends with three girls, who also live there. Only not so good thing: my new appartment is so fucking cold till now that Jesus, my fellow dragon, would have died right away. Can i come visit you? Right when you are at home? I even would try to take the same plane! Pleeeease, i'm freezing to death! ;)

and btw: pictures (and the video, if somebody is interested in it ;) ) will be uploaded when i found my card-reader. It seems like he is still in the other appartment... :roll:
YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

...Mad world

ok, that was fun!

thank you to everyone who took time out of their personal life to come and demonstrate just how much this forum is still very much alive and kicking as a gathering of awesome people.
also, thank you to Thomas for being the unelected de-facto leader of our anarcho-syndicalist commune and doing a fine job of it.

also, also, not nearly enough Rieke. we must do something about that. Israel awaits you in all it's glory, beauty, history, falaffel and Temperatures. We got lots of Temperatures! I make you a good price!

Offered in reflection:
A logician, a philosopher and a landscape architect come into a public bathroom.
"Pee or not Pee." declares the logician.
"Peeing-for-others is not peeing-for-itself." observes the philosopher.
The landscape architect takes a dump and alluviates it away.
