City/Town: Bern, Spitalgasse 26
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: el Mexicano restaurant

On the first Tuesday of each month we meet up for a meal and a chat at a reasonably priced restaurant in Bern.

This month we are eating at the Mexican Restaurant el Mexicano, we have been twice before, and we like it there.

The menu is interesting http://elmexicano.ch/Speisekarten/Sp...xicano2013.pdf

It is halfway along Spitalgasse, near the fountain, above the Müller Pharmacy http://map.search.ch/bern/spitalgasse-26?poi=restaurant

Take any bus or tram to Bahnhofplatz, and then walk about 200 meters eastwards along Spitalgasse until the fountain,
https://maps.google.ch/maps?q=Spital...IuOgiAbl6ICoCw

Car parking is always difficult in town, parking at the Bahnhof or Metro parking near Waisenhausplatz, http://map.search.ch/bern/spitalgasse-26?poi=verkehr

Please don't choose a "maybe" selection. I find it embarrassing explaining that I don't know if the guest is coming or not.
There is a useful reminder function at the top right on this page, please decide, yes or no.

I will close the reservation list about 2 hours before we eat, and then tell the restaurant exactly how many of us are coming.

Hi, I am really new to Bern but would love to come to this. Can someone meet me at the train station Tram stop?

What time do you plan to be there? With about 20 people coming, someone from the group should be passing by and can direct you.

But otherwise it is not hard to find. Sbrinz provided good directions including street view. If you're lost, you can even ask people to point you toward Müller and then just go upstairs to the restaurant once there. Welcome to Bern, and see you tonight!

I just called the restauarant and they do have enough chairs!

Thank you all for coming, this is a BIG turnout tonight.

We will have 2 tables of 12 each, with an account for each table,
this way we can easily pay individually.

Re: Bern dinner club, Mexican meal on Tuesday 1st October at 19:00

I will meet Abi at the church next to the Hauptbahnhof
tram stop, at 18:50. I will be wearing my green Sbrinz
cap, a black jacket and jeans. I am tall and wide... I got
stuck in the shower on Saturday, not that I am fat: the
middle door became stuck...

Re: Bern dinner club, Mexican meal on Tuesday 1st October at 19:00

I will try to come along to one of these sometime.
I would have come today but already had a lunch date planned and I think two meals out in one day would be pushing it a bit.
