ProZ.com powwow: Pre-conference powwow

October 1, 2010, 8:00 pm
Czech RepublicPragueIn personEnglish
1) Where?
The pre-conference powwow will take place at “U Sádlů”, a medieval restaurant close to the historic centre of the city. Go to their website, to find out more (there’s also an English version of the site). The address of the pub is Klimentská 2, Prague 1.

2) When?
This informal gathering before the conference will be held on Friday, October 1, from 6 pm. Dinner will be served at 7 pm, so please make sure that you arrive on time.

3) What’s the dress code?
You are free to wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

4) What will be served?
The restaurant will prepare a special dish for us. It will be a combination of typical old-Bohemian dishes. I think this will the best way to avoid waiting dozens of minutes for your meal – imagine the chaos in the kitchen when fifty guests order a different dish each.

The dish is called “Royal platter”:

Královská mísa:
¼ kachny, vepřové, uzené, moravské zelí a listový špenát, variace knedlíků
Royal platter:
¼ of duck, pork, and smoked pork, Moravian cabbage and leaf spinach, assortment of dumplings
Königliche Platte:
¼ Bratente, Schweinefleisch, geräuchertes Fleisch, mährisches Sauerkraut und Blattspinat, Auswahl an böhmischen Knödeln

(I know, I know, it’s going to be what we call a “dietary mistake”, but how many times in a year do you attend a powwow in Prague? And besides, nobody will force you to have a dessert – for example the delicious apple strudel with vanilla sauce and whipped cream :-)

5) How to get there?

By taxi: Tell the taxi driver to take you to “restaurace U Sádlů, Klimentská 2” (U Sádlů Restaurant, Klimentská street 2).

By tram: Take the 5, 8 or 26 and get off at “Revoluční”. Then follow the tram for some hundred meters and take the first street to the right. It is Klimentská street. The restaurant is on the right side.

By metro: Take the yellow line and get off at “Náměstí Republiky”. There are two exits from the metro station. Watch the signs after you get off the train and use the exit that will take you to Palladium Shopping Centre (the other one will take you to Masarykovo Railway Station). Then follow the tram all the way to Klimentská street (see above, By tram).

There are some pictures in the conference gallery.
Here's a link to a map.

You will also find a detailed description and a map in your conference folders.

6) What to take with you?
The powwow will be an excellent opportunity to make contacts and network. Don’t forget to take your visit cards with you!

Vegetarian option? Sep 15, 2010

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for organising this powwow!

Just one question: will it be possible to order a vegetarian dish at the restaurant?

Percy

re: Vegetarian option Sep 16, 2010

I will assume that we vegetarians can also order from the menu, am I right?

!! Please DO NOT reserve a "royal platter" for me!! I'll either order from the menu (there are so many wonderful vegetarian options, would seem a shame if we can't order from it) or eat before I arrive.

Vegetarian option Sep 20, 2010

Ahoj Pavel!

I too would like to order a vegetarian meal from the menu so please do not order a Royal Platter for me, either.
Perhaps Pavel could kindly inform the restaurant in advance that some of the guests are vegetarians.

Royal platter Sep 22, 2010

Hi Pavel!

Please don't order the "Royal platter" for me either, I'd also prefer choosing from the menu if possible. I'd really prefer eating something not that heavy.

Anyway I believe that this is a good chance for the foreigners to taste something that is typically Czech and a good choice for the strong guys such. as you

Hope I won't cause you many difficulties as organizing the whole matter will be rather demanding, so thanks a lot...

Yep, I don't eat deserts but my other half does. Having just started to eat meat again after more than 20 years as a vegetarian/pescatarian, I'm a little scared of the Royal Platter but I'm game to try some of it.icon_smile.gif
