Any ideas for a Venue yet? Feb 1, 2009

There's a great place called Babooshka which has one off Krakowskie Przedmiescie, and now another just opened on Krucza, near Nowogrodzka. That's my humble suggestion.

We should get something well in advance as the Valentine's crowd will book almost everything out...

Magda Feb 8, 2009

It's getting sort of late, seeing as this is Valentine's Day... There'a a nice Chinese on Rynek Mariensztacki, called Bliss. Nothing fancy, but decent. I know Chinese is cliche, but...

Hotel or Hostel? Feb 8, 2009

Angioletta and Tomasz, do you want hotels or hostels?

I would suggest anywhere in the centre firstly as it's close to everything. Depending on which you're after, then I can perhaps suggest a decent Hostel, where I have stayed in the past, near Krakowskie Przedmiescie - Helvetia. As to Hotels - well it depends on your price range.

Why don't we.... Feb 8, 2009

Just find any old nook and book it - asap. It's ridiculously close to V day so we will be lucky to get much that's not overpriced for the occasion.

ALSO: Can we book somewhere that won't force us to just have one bill, because (based on past experience) I'm not prepared to fight over the bill at the end of it all.icon_smile.gif

Hi All,
We have a place booked, it's called Bookhouse Cafe at Świętokrzyska 14 (opposite NBP).
The place is large enough to accommodate us all (we will have a separate space right at the entrance), the menu is cafe-style rather than restaurant - selection of cakes, hot sandwiches, quiches, etc, soft drinks and wine.


Thank you all for good suggestions - both here on the PW Board and in private mails. I've checked them all, but unfortunately most have been already boo

See you all on Saturday!
