I think we should give it a go to the bar - it's new to teh area and they need some display of support plus the "uknown" is so more exciting than the "known" ....

Sorry to duplicate my post which I put in another thread but here goes.. With regard to the social I think the seating in the new bar may prove problematic. There are fixed sofas in blocks and no additional chairs to pull up (at least that was the case when I went there).

Maybe someone who lives upthePalace way (not like us lowland swampdwellers) could pass by and talk to the owners to see if a chatty quiet evening is something they would encourage on a Friday! Everyone benefits from having satisfied customers getting what they want. They might say great, we'll make sure the place meets your needs, or they might say how about on a Tuesday sometime, or they might say come to over when you've finished talking and have a coupon for a free beer in the noisy zone on a Friday night...(after a drink or three I might remember the Hustle!)

What about meeting at Los Torreros? I've never been in but people have said its nice in there.

That sounds a splendid idea Ziwa. It's quite a big space there so we could prob grab an area and order tapas as the mood takes us.

OK. Quick Straw Poll - Black Sheep, Los Torreros or the Guatama. Based on this, we an decide on the venue by the end of today.

Cheers,

No preference - just let me know final venue - would hate to go up to random strangers in the wrong place and say "Are you from VN?"

Los Torreros has most potential for a civilised discussion in a non-threatening environment.

Los Torreros for me too.

Nick - I take it you meant we could make a decision 'tomorrow' as you posted at 11.30 last night :D .

we can do the Gitmo' Bar next time....use this time to check it out. It really didn't sound very comfortable for cosy get together, but if we are wrong we've got a long future to remedy that. If it looks completely fab, we can head over there at the end of the evening. Its a Friday after all!

So I assume we'll be meeting in the big restaurant area at the back, not the small bar space at the front?

(Good to make this clear so first-timers aren't put off by the apparent absence of VN crowd in the bar - but also, has anyone checked with Los Toreros that we can have a probably-large-but-indeterminate table tomorrow night, mainly for drinking?)

See you all there, whicheverhow.
