City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Restaurant Mandir, Spalenvorstadt 9, Bas

Well there you have it – E for `Espana` was a good choice and it was worth it just for those delicious starters.

Forging on from those sumptuous Tapas and we find ourselves in the land of `F` . . . and it would be both rude and unwise not to choose FRANCE!
Except that is was unwise to chose France, because every restaurant that I booked, wanted every person in our group to have the SAME choice!!
It seems that they have a problem dealing with groups and so as it is now last minute . . I have decided to book somewhere in Basel where they don`t have a problem . . . Indian . . . .mmmmmm

This month’s event is therefore a special one for TWO reasons:

As a one off and in response to a request/suggestion from a couple of EF members, I decided to make this an `away`match.


2. This month’s event also announces the start of the A-Z of Dining in Basel, which I am sure will be every bit as successful as the Zurich event. The Basel organizer of this regular monthly event will be Miss Friis, who has kindly suggested the idea and offered to run it.

So let’s make it a nice one-off joint event and help get the Basel group going.

To enable Zurich based people to join; I have switched from the regular Friday evening, to a Saturday (25th June).

I have reserved a table for 14 people starting at 19:30
Please see the link for details of the restaurant www.mandirbasel.com/English/Home.aspx


I will be travelling by train from Zurich and so anyone else coming could co-ordinate with that if desired.
Let`s get booking chaps . . .

Oh, one final thing . . . next month`s event will be back in Zürich as usual for us . . the Basel group will organise their event . . . over there.

If anyone needs a lift, my passengers have cancelled.
Still have a free seat? If so, I'd love a ride.

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich (Basel)

Okay, any people who are still listed as maybe . . . if you could actually make up your mind . . . . now is the time.
If you still dont know, then its pot-luck but please send me a PM if you are coming at the last minute and I will tell them at the restaurant.
That applies also if you are NOT coming . . . please do not just no-show.

I am actually travelling over to Basel by train - it leaves Zurich HB at 18:00.
If you want to meet up for that, send me a PM please.
Unfortunately I will NOT be travelling back by train, as I have agreed to be the Nominated non-drinking driver for someone, coming back to Zurich.
See you all at the restaurant. It is booked in my name - just ask for Steve.

Cheers,
Basher.

I think it's a bit full for the way back, sorry. But if someone doesn't need their space it's yours!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich (Basel)

Really enjoyed the night! Thanks, Basher, for organising. Sorry we had to pike out before witnessing the modern marvel that is 70sKitch dancing.

I hope the new 'Basel Wing' of The A-Z of Dining goes from strength to strength!

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich (Basel)

It was a long round trip and I finally got home at around 02:30 . . . . however it was worth it to enjoy another good meal. More importantly it was nice to meet some Basel members, they`re real - they do exist . . . I have seen them - and do you know?.. . .. jolly fine chaps, what?
Now I wish Miss Friis every success with the new Basel A-Z of Dining . . . don`t forget what I told you . . . . `Don`t panic when people start dropping out during the week before . . . because there are ALWAYS late joiners too`

That was my first real trip to Basel, having previously gone directly to the airport from the station - from what I saw, I would like to go back . . . . so may even join one of the A-Z events there.

You Baselers now must go back to Go . . . do not collect 200 Pounds . . . and start with A.
As for us . . . well it`s a mad leap of faith into the world of GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG . . . . . . .

Re: The A-Z of dining in Zürich (Basel)

In Basel, I saw people outside, on the streets, talking and laughing and generally having fun AFTER MIDNIGHT!

What kind of Swissness is this I ask ya!?

Barcelona. Would love to have met you all up here, but I'm afraid Barcelona trumps Basel!
