City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Carambolage Summerresidenz,Erlenmattpark

Welcome to (now traditional) monthly brunch @ Basel , in bar Carambolage This time with a special twist - the brunch will be at Carambolage Summerresidenz (250m from Carambolage at Erlenstrasse 34)

What is better than spending Sunday enjoying lovely brunch. And meet new people from Basel and elsewhere...

The charming team at Carmbolage is having a brunch event once per month, and it is fantastic! Fresh ingredients, and great variety. Plus they are super nice.

The best of all - it is not expensive! And for what you get, it is great value for money (at least in Basel). Count on 23 CHF per person for a healthy brunch (food, coffee and juice included)

So, join on Sunday, June 3rd at about 11h. Meet new people, or talk with old friends.

Note: there is space reserved for 12 people. First 12 to reserve will get their seat. Please respond "yes" only if you are surely coming!

Cheers!

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

the fact that Adrianlondon is regular on monthly brunches speaks about the quality of the experience more than anything else.

I mean, if it is good for a trendsetter from London, it must be good for rest of us

(joke aside, good to see you all). Note there are 12 places reserved, and they are going fast like hotcakes.

I come for the company. The good food in a relaxed atmosphere is a rare bonus.

I will do my best to find the place for you and wifey. Would be a shame for you not to feel Basel welcome!

When restaurant confirms extra two chairs, I will let you know.

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

Dear All,

I have now 14 seats confirmed from Carambolage; therefore first 14 on the list will have their place guaranteed.

We will surely know better next week (there are always some last-minute cancellations and requests).

(exception is only Bexie - if Bexie appears I will give her my seat and I will stand or sit on the floor. Bexie has special priority).

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

Hi!

Note that the Carambolage Sumerresidenz is in NT Areal - which is about 250m north of Erlenmattstrasse.

You go through the chilren's playground, then you take the wooden elevated path through the wild. The feeling of walking through the land of shadows from Lord of the Rings starts to empower you - and then you hit the massive dragon made of rusty steel! The hearts of the weak tremble, the hearts of the strong remain still!

Those brave enough to pass it will be rewarded by the best brunch in Basel!

yeah, sure, you were on the top of the pile all this time. We cant let EF software decide what is fair and what isn't.

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

I'm sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances I won't be able to make brunch this Sunday. I was really looking forward to meeting some new faces too. Have a great time and I will do my best to make one in the future!

Would there by chance be one open spot left? I'm looking at moving to Basel and would love to meet you all.

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

Auh, difficult LASwiss, there are already two waitlisted (solaris + friend) (in case someone cancels).

I can let you know as soon as I have cancelation from someone (IF that happens).

Re: Basel Sunday Brunch @ Carambolage

The event had finished by the time you posted. Hope you feel better soon!

It was a great brunch; thanks Meeyat. It's easier now they've moved to their summer venue (well, once you've managed to find it, which weeds out some people). It's now a buffet - no ticking things you want; you just pay a flat fee of 24Fr and all the food is laid out. It includes an orange juice and coffee/tea of your choice too.
