Dear Henning and friends:
Good idea, we are not only having conversations with Mr.Laporta and the FCBarcelona Administrators negotiating the time of the match, we will also propose them to let me play the tribute-concert on the arena of the Camp Nou itself... Maybe Leonard should play here himself (like U2, Bruce Springsteen...), on the next tour!! Cheers everyone

At this stage, we are already able to announce the location of the lunch:

It will be held at the "Sala Vivaldi" (Llançà Street - next to Plaza Espanya), so you guess, it's the same place as the tribute-concert the night before. We chose this venue because of the facilities we have there (there's the stage, microphone, and a DVD project to do some screening as well...) and also its strategic location (we can go walking to the Palau Sant Jordi, where Leonard Cohen is playing)... The "Sala Vivaldi" is a music-bar and concert-hall but also they are able to transform the configuration of the space with tables for the meal and they have their own kitchen, and besides they have experience in this kind of celebrations. So it will be our "base-camp", all for the Cohenites meet-up, from Sunday night to Monday afternoon.

We still cannot say the final prize (do not panic!!) because we need to negotiate some final details but it will be somewhere between 28 and 30 euros (maximum). Please see this other thread (viewtopic.php?f=35&t=16790&start=0) with a "Poll" in order to choose the best Menu (both menus have the same price) and here we can explain and discuss all the gastronomic and other folkloric issues... Also, as the date approaches, we will think about a complete schedule of all the activities. Best wishes from the coast of Barcelona!!

Paola,
No problem, you're already on my list! I have put you on number 84, because the person that was there has cancelled... I will post an updated list soon!

Ray,
Jacqui,

I only need confirmation for the ones that have a red "UNCONFIRMED" warning next to them... The others (like you) have already let me know if they will attend lunch or not...
I'm getting double confirmations here... Do you want two seats each??? :-)

Hi Marteen,

I'm from BCN but I won't be able to have lunch with you.
As I work near Sala Vivaldi I will be able to have coffee with you.
I would love to have my tag name too!!
I'm half Catalan and Flamish (from Lier)

Thanks

IMPORTANT:
This list contains names of the participants to any of the planned activities in Barcelona, either the concert by Jorcx, the lunch, the preconcert meetup, post concert meetup,...
Every activity has unlimited (free) entrance, except for the lunch, which has a maximum of 120 people because of the maximum capacity of the restaurant. Already 114 people have confirmed to come to the lunch with another 3 still pending... This means there are only a few spots left for lunch. If you would like to have lunch with the group, let me know NOW! I will also be keeping a "waiting list" for the ones that contact me after the maximum has been reached. In case someone cancels last minute, I will contact you and let you know we have (a) seat(s) for you.

Any way: if you want to participate in any of the activities, I can still make you a name tag! Just send me all the required info and make sure to pick it up when you are at one of the activities!

Any questions? Contact me and I'll be glad to help you out.

Take care,
Maarten
