Mexican Food in Basel (EF discount?)

I've got a hankering for some Mexican food (or reasonable facsimile thereof) in Basel. I'm talking with a local restaurant about getting something beyond the ordinary offering if I organise a small grouo. My wish list:
- Real tortillas (not Indian or Turkish durum bread)
- Fresh coriander, chipotle, and/or cumin spices, not canned jalapeņo bits
- Guacamole which hasn't been kept captive in a bottle
- Non-Swiss cheese (sorry, "Swiss" just doesn't work as well as Monterey Jack or Cheddar, it's too strong and smelly)
- A corn-based beer where I can afford more than just one (who can pay 8 francs a bottle!?!) or maybe even a margarita

I'm targeting minimum 4 out of 5 on my list, which I can set up with a group pricing discount on Thursday, Feb. 26 evening if 10 or more people come. Anyone interested in making a EF event here?
Also, is there a kind soul out there who can PM and show me how to make an interested person /rsvp list on the forum?
If enough interest, I'll lock down details and post restaurant name and food/price details in next couple days.
