MEETUP BRUSSELS June 30th

Post by frankandme » Mon May 27, 2013 11:26 pm

Hi to all of you visiting Manneken-Piss' hometown for Leonard's concert on June 30th :)

In a first attempt to find a suitable place for a meet-up it looks like possibilities in the area next to the venue are scarce.

Marie-Astrid and I checked out one that could fit but we will still have to negotiate snacks and some reserved seating, as the place seems to be popular in the neighbourhood.

Therefore could you let me know if you would like to attend.

I also intend to make nametags. If you would like one, please send me an email at martinenevens@gmail.com
providing: your full name - city/country - forum name

With the kind input and expertise of Maarten I also hope to get some lanyards ready in time ;-)

Further details will follow ASAP

Not exactly Anny, Maarten will help me with the design. We were actually having them made for Brussels but I will try to make some more and bring them to Antwerp for those who'd like one.

Dear friends,

Here’s a little more info about our meetup before the concert on June 30th.

Meeting place: BAR DU MATIN
Chaussée d'Alsemberg 172 / 1190 Forest-Brussels
Tel: 02 537 71 59

Venue : Forest National - Vorst Nationaal
Avenue Victor Rousseau 208
1190 Forest-Brussels

'Bar du Matin' is about a 20 min walk from the venue, most of it flat or down hill. It's an easy walk to 'Forest National' mainly alongside a park.

If you don't feel like walking, bus 54 stops right in front of the bar and drops you off in front of the venue in less than 10 min./ 5 stops. On Sunday it runs at 00.04 - 00.24 - 00.44 past the hour.

As there will be around 40 of us, an area will be reserved inside and another one outside on the terrace. So let's hope the weather gods are on our side.

They don't have an extensive food menu: light snacks, mainly a variety of 'crêpes sucrées & salées' (salt & sweet pancakes) and 'croque-monsieur' (ham & cheese sandwiches) but it will sure be healthier than the greasy burgers and sausages offered around the venue ;-) Drinks of all kinds, of course.

There is a metro stop 'ALBERT' right outside the bar. It's on line 3 or 4, conveniently connecting with the center of Brussels.

If you are coming by car, I think it's wise to park somewhere in between the meeting place and the venue and not move it till after the concert. There is very little parking space around the venue and you might find it impossible to park after our gathering. The best place to park would be along “avenue Victor Rousseau”. If you get there between 4.30 and 5 pm it shouldn’t be a problem.

I suggest we meet at 'Bar du Matin' around 5 pm.

Nametags are ready for those who asked. Lanyards as well, so no need to bring one.

If you have any questions please send me an email, I'd gladly help if I can.

I'm sending a confirmation mail with maps and details to all those on my list.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Martine
