02.06.2015 19:00 to 22:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Bern, Wallgasse 3
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Arirang Korean Restaurant

We came here about a year ago when it was newly opened, and enjoyed a very good meal. (There was a problem with an unpaid starter, which was resolved:
my daughter & I had shared one starter, the restaurant billed us for two). http://www.restaurant-arirang.ch/kor...eiz-infos.html

The Arirang is almost next door to the Mr Pickwick pub, so we could meet there at 6 pm for some pre dinner drinks.

Location: https://www.google.ch/maps/dir//Wall...46.9463081!3e2

Menu: http://www.restaurant-arirang.ch/kor...eisekarte.html

Reserving: please reserve a place before 4 pm. I need to inform the restaurant of the final number of diners coming, & I restrict the number of guests you may
bring up to 3, as otherwise your relatives would dominate our evening. Another problem I have is with "Maybe" reservations: please either a Yes or a No,
I can't spend the time chasing after you, to find out if you are indeed coming on Tuesday evening.

The table will be reserved as usual under the name "English Club" (All the waiters seem to understand this)

Looking forward to a good evening again!

Only 2 more days to this event and only 2 of us are dining.

Should I move the date to the 2nd Tuesday in June?
'Tis not June yet. Did I miss a memo somewhere?

Just added my interest, though I realise that doesn't exactly boost the numbers greatly. I'd be OK with the proposed date shift.

A gentle reminder for everyone living near Bern, we will be eating a very nice Asian meal tomorrow evening. If you are coming, please sign up above, before 4 pm tomorrow.

And please don't, please don't order a hot dog....

I shall almost certainly have a pre-prandial beverage at the nearby drinking establishment, i.e Pickwicks.

I'll try to get there around that time too once I've worked out where it is.

Looking forward to trying some Korean food in Switzerland tomorrow.

I will be arriving in Bern at around 18h30 but I have a few errands to run, so I won't be able to join for the pre-dinner drinks. See you at Arirang.

https://www.google.ch/maps/dir//Wall...46.9463081!3e2

Leave the main Bern railway station at the west end entrance, where the escalators go up from the platforms to the "wavy roof"
Go down the hill and cross the major road, go straight on, pass Starbucks, and continue down the slight hill which is Hirschengraben. Most of the buses and trams circulate through the Hirschengraben.
The Wallgasse road is near the bottom of Hirschengraben on the left side. Turn left into Wallgasse. Then the restaurant Arirang and Pickwicks are about 30 meters walking east, walking away from the sun.

Car parking is OK at City West.

Sorry can't make it after all. The boy just pulled a scruffy piece of paper out of his school bag ( it must have been there for at least a week) with info about a meeting to discuss the details if their trip to Munich which just happens to be this evening.

Re: Bern dinner club: Korean meal on Tuesday 2.6.2015

Fantastic meal last night. Probably the most I've ever spent on Korean food in just about most places in the world (even after adjusting for currency exchange etc.), but genuinely good tasting Korean cuisine (well, I was surprised the egg wasn't raw in the bi bim bap, but whatever, still good).

Great to see familiar and new faces alike.

As I said at the restaurant, I had left my small folded pass wallet that contained my demi-tarif, Mobilis abonnement and work ID on my office desk yesterday afternoon (found it this morning). On the train back to Lausanne I was controlled and, unlike many times, was actually asked for the demi-tarif. Naturally I realised I didn't have it, and was thinking I was going to get my first CFF fine. Luckily, it seems that after presenting my residence permit and a CHF 5 slap on the wrist, I only have to present my demi-tarif to the train station later and it's all apples again.
