Business opportunities and informal dinner Aug 7, 2012

Hello everyone,

I have been in Athens for three months now and I thought I might try and get to know some of local translators/interpreters and exchange experiences, business cards, etc. I own a small translation company in Serbia aiming to cover the Balkan languages market and I am slowly trying to build a network of people to work with in different countries. I know a couple of great restaurants/tavernas, so I will give you my suggestion. One is the peaceful taverna To Kafeneio (I think this is what it's called) in the downtown area, just off of Plaka (one of the side streets close to an old church). It serves great food at very decent prices. Another one is in the area of Abelokipi (close to Panormou metro station). Also, great food, great prices.

Otherwise, feel free to suggest a place yourselves.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Dear Cedomir Pusica,

Thank you very much for your e-mail.

I would love participating in this event, but most likely I will not be in Athens on that date.

Thank you.

Powwow Aug 8, 2012

Thank you very much for the invitation!:) I'm not completely sure I'll be in Athens on the 14th, but I'd love to meet you all, so I hope I'll make it!!:)

I'd prefer Plaka, though, to be honest, much more central than Abelokipi, much easier to get to!

Do we have a time yet?

Dinner time Aug 8, 2012

Hi everyone! icon_smile.gif

Regarding dinner time, maybe we can get there at around 9 PM? Or even as early as 8... I will pass by the restaurant one of these days and ask for a group discount as well icon_wink.gif I know they do it (e.g. cheaper drinks, some appetizers on the house, free sweets, etc.).

So, suggestions are welcome regarding the time!

Dinner time Aug 10, 2012

I think 9 pm is fine. There are people who finish work a bit late. Also, it won't be so hot!

Table booked Aug 12, 2012

Hey all,

I already booked the table at 9:00 PM, but will give my confirmation to the owner on Monday, as soon as we know how many of us will be able to attend. So far, I see there are 7 of us who confirmed coming and it would be great if the rest would do the same in the course of Monday (even Tuesday before 2 PM). Regarding discounts, they proposed two options:

- every 5 beers, 1 is free (it costs 3.40 EUR); I guess the same applies for wine or any other drinks
- no discount for drinks, but free sweets in the end.

I would go with the second option, but we may decide on the spot.

Looking forward to hearing from you all and seeing you there! Once again, the address is:

1 Epiharmou and Tripodon St., Plaka
