Can some of you propose a place to meet? Sep 4, 2007

Can someone local in BCN propose a good place to meet?
As for us, we'll be staying in the Northern part of Raval, not too far from the Ramblas. I think any centrally located restaurant / bar / café would be OK.

hay alguien que conoce la ciudad bien? Sep 11, 2007

Entiendo el castellano mas o menos, pero no puedo bien escrivir.

I'd like to ask someone who actually lives in Barcelona to find a suitable place for us to meet. I'll be arriving with my wife on Saturday (22nd), and stay until the 26th. I thought it would be nice to meet up with fellow translators on the weekend. I read that the Mercé festival is a big hit, that's why I thought a late breakfast / café / brunch would be a better idea than meeting for a dinner.

What is a good time to meet on a Sunday morning? 10 am? 11 am?

It's easy to find a good place to meet. It should be easily accessible, preferrably have a separate room or a place that we can have to ourselves. Someone should actually make a reservation at this place, explaining that we will be about 20 people, and everyone will pay for their own consumption.

Personally, we would prefer a non-smoking place.

hope to see you all soon

Csaba

Proposal Sep 12, 2007

Hi, we've never been to this place but it's centrally located and it takes reservations for breakfast/brunch: http://www.cafeoperabcn.com/eng/index.htm What do you say? We don't know if we can still make a reservation with so short notice but if you agree we can call and find out. We would also prefer it it to be non-smoking since we'll bring our 2-month-old baby

Ok the café Opera Sep 12, 2007

Hello everyone, I just confirmed my participation. I think that the café Opera is ok. I think it has a separate room. I also agree on a breakfast/bruch. People coming from outside BCN preferably suggest the hour (for me it's easier to adjust). See all of you, NADIA

Let's do it for Pavarotti ;-) Sep 13, 2007

As no-one else seems to have made a counter suggestion, who is in favour of Abraham ringing the Cafe Opera and booking a space for us?

PUTTING MY HAND FIRMLY IN THE AIR

BTW is this place connected to the Liceu? I don't know it. I live out in the "sticks" 60kms from the big city.

let's go for it Sep 13, 2007

If this café has a separate room, that would be perfect. Even a semi-separate corner would be OK.
Let's count with about 20 people. In my experience, about 2/3 or 3/4 of the people who sign up actually come, plus we will have some spouses.
How about setting the times from 10 am to 1 pm?

Café Opera Sep 13, 2007

Hi everybody! I heard that Café Opera is quite nice, so I vote for it too.

We better start confirming the attendances, don't you think?
We'll be two people.

I vote for Abraham Sep 13, 2007

Hello, I also agree for Abraham to call! For Berni: café Opera is just in front of teatre Liceu, crossing the rambla. It is very easy to find. Bye, see you, NADIA

Bad news :( Sep 14, 2007

Hi everyone! I called and they said that they don't take reservations during weekends, especially during that weekend when it's already pretty full. Any other suggestion?

somewhere else Sep 14, 2007

How about a less popular area, away from the Ramblas? Maybe cafés there are not that full...

Local Knowledge? Sep 14, 2007

Those of you living in BCN might want to come up with a suggestion (quickly).
I think a central location is NOT essential. So, if anyone has a local bar that would lend us a room that morning in Gracia, or somewhere else easily accessible by Metro, please organise it. Other than that we could all arrange to meet next to the Francesc Masia monument in Plaça Catalunya and just descend, en masse, on some bar. The important thing now is to arrange to meet, isn't it Csaba? Which bar is cherry on the cake, isn't it?

potential meeting place Sep 14, 2007

Hola a tod@s! Uno rapidito para decir que no podré asistir al Evento, pues no estaré en Barna ese fin de semana. Pero... hoy pasé por la librería Laie en Pau Claris que tiene un café muy agradable arriba. Y me acordé de vosotros. Mi única duda es si está abierta los domingos. http://www.laie.es/cafe/portada.php Good luck and good Powwow! Elena

Rambla Sep 14, 2007

Why not ask at the Restaurant LA POMA (hotel ROYAL) if we can sit all together upstairs in hjte bar to have breakfast, or something like that.
If I can, on Monday I will go and ask.

Etienne Muylle i Wallace.
I will ( almost surely) be there on Sunday.
