*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
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.

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

Just one note; it's not a big restaurant and I already got a "ohlalalala" when I said for 16 people, so I don't think it's even realistic to dream about expending the reservation.
So RSVP now if you want to join

Please note - it`s Saturday this time . . not friday . . . as it would have been awkward for some people travelling from Zurich in time.

Yes, I know. Will be in Basel on Friday, so no need to go back to Zürich. Don't forget to change some Euros.

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

Dear all - please note that the restuarant venue is going to change due to an unfortunate mix up with the booking.
The restaurant that is currently stated has no availability on the weekend that we want.
As I don`t know Basel at all, I am currently investigating another French restuarant and will advise you hopefully tomorrow . . . . Don`t panic . . keep calm . .

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

Dear all - due to extreme difficulties trying to get a reservation (I booked at 3 different restuarants and they all wanted us to choose just ONE option . . .for everybody . . . that means we would all have to have the same!) . . . I have decided to change the booking. I am sorry but it is no longer FRENCH but now INDIAN . . yesss let`s play safe . . please see the event posting and you will see that I have booked a table for 14 people at the MANDIR Indian restaurant in Basel at 19:30.
It`s still Basel . . it`s still saturday . . Just don`t need to bring your passport.
As for the French? well I am going to file them under `P` . . for Pendantic.
