Curry Time anyone?

Some of us Baslers fancy our monthly curry restaurant fix. So for the May 2011 curry fix, may I propose an old favourite:


Tuesday May 10th
at 19:30 at the Mandir Restaurant just a little along the road from the centre of Basel

Easy to Walk/Cycle to or get the tram no. 3 or bus no. 30


Mandir (http://www.mandirbasel.com/English/Home.aspx)
Spalenvorstadt 9
4051 Basel
Tel.: +41 (0)61 261 99 93
info@mandirbasel.com
info@mandir.ch


The limit for this month is 25 so, please only sign up as yes if you plan to come definitely. No shows will be noted down.

If you are not sure or only wish to join for a drink later in the evening please RSVP as “maybe”.


All are welcome, newcomers or "old hands" - just post below or PM me for more info or if you have any questions.


See you soon,


Sagar

10th of May is a Tuesday. I thought curry night was always on a Wednesday... a skipped month and a day change, tradiotions are being broken left and right here!

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

Tuesday is the new Wednesday. That means Friday is officially part of the weekend!

But Sunday, being a traditional day, is staying as it is.

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

Hi,

actually historically the curry club always used to be on a Tuesday. It only changed to a Wednesday because the person who was organising them at the time had German lessons on a Tuesday.

Personally, I would like it if they changed back to being on Tuesday again....there are less things that clash with a Tuesday curry

Also I prefer a la carte rather than a buffet.

Thanks for organising

Martin

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

Yep just as 40 is the new 20 and 50 is the new.....o never mind

Anyway, the Basel German A1/A2 conversation class meets every Wednesday and therefore I've scheduled the Basel Curry on a Tuesday evening.

C'mon guys, just because we stay in Switzerland, we don't have to wait for the customary 1 year wait (with multiple applications to the local gemeinde) before making any changes.

That said, if there are genuinely pressing reasons why the curry should be scheduled on a Wednesday, we can shift over.

Join up fellas, Lets have a Magical May this time!

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

Adrian, I think we will just go with the a-la-carte.

So there, now there's no reason or rhyme whatsoever to not change your RSVP from 'maybe' to 'yes'

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

Thanks Mimi

Folks, time to get your "Ayes" in. There can be no excuses as the April Curry was not held.

I will wait till Wednesday for an indicative count of the number of people and then inform the restaurant to make a reservation accordingly.

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

I had signed up as yes, but then realized it's the same night as Eurovision semi-finals 1. And well, somebody needs to support Iceland...

Re: Basel Curry - May 2011

You can support them by filling your mouth with curry and not singing.

Oh, and semi finals? There is a semi finals? A whole show of songs (or should I say "acts") more shite than the actual final show itself? *shudder*

The Mandir organised a TV (the smallest TV in the world) for the Germany-Spain World Cup Semi-Final last year. Maybe they'd do the same for the ESC semis.
