reminder: Paris Meet-up: 25 October

Remember, the second Parisian apéro is coming soon.

WHEN

It's on SATURDAY, 25 OCTOBER 2008

from about 18.30 (6.30pm)

WHERE

LA TROTTINETTE
Sicilian bar / restaurant

23, rue de la Fontaine au Roi
Paris 11th arrondissement
Métro Goncourt (line 11)
or if you prefer Parmentier (line 3) or République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9, 11)

The plan is that we meet for drinks at about 6.30 and some of us will stay and dine there. The proprieter cooks fresh Sicilian food: home-made pasta and bread, with exclusively fresh ingredients, around 60% organic products. lots of vegetables which will make the vegetarians happy for once ! but the carnivores can have a steak if they prefer ! appetizers are at 7.50€, main course 12€, dessert 6€ (glass of beer 2.50€).


RSVP

Zelda reminds us that we should:
"PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR PRESENCE AND WHETHER YOU PLAN TO HAVE DINNER OR NOT by leaving a message in this thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28720
i have to give him some more definite numbers a few days in advance ; it's a small place, and as everything is made to order with fresh ingredients, he wants to be sure to have the right quantities on hand."

I've even made an announcement in the announcement section, and put it on the forum front page too, slayda.

I hope that you all have a good time. I'm sure that we will toast you in Paris.

yes, we'll all raise our glasses to absent friends in paris, and you do the same : since you're meeting up for lunch we might even end up toasting each other at precisely the same moment.

Well the Paris meet-up was last night. There were about 15 people for drinks, and eight stayed for dinner. The company included four mods: Alex, Zelda, Hadrien and me. The people from Bookeen didn't come. There was a friendly atmosphere and we all had a very good time.
The devices included the Sony PRS500, Sony PRS505, several Cybooks, some PDAs, an ebookwise 1150, an Asus EEE etc.

that wasn't my plate, so i'm not sure what was on it, but the food was yummy. it was sicilian cuisine with all fresh ingredients, majority of organic products, home-made bread and pasta, real mozzarella di buffala and lots of vegetables. the wine was very good too.
