Paris meet-up

by paul spencer Sun Mar 30th, 2008 at 09:57:59 PM EST

Looks like May 4 (a Sunday) works best for the largest group.  At this point that seems to include Migeru, Metatone, Cyrille, Melanchthon, LEP, Helen, In Wales, geezer in paris with 'possibles' from Jerome, margouillat, afew, and Loefing. Frank S. and sven have sent their regrets, and The3rdColumn has gone GBCW.

As to where, exactly when, and how to get there, I am the least likely person to decide. My plan is to do what y'all tell me to do.


redstar is the only one who definitely needed an April meet-up date. I'm available on April 11 or 12, if redstar - and others - want to meet for lunch or dinner.

Other than that - give me my marching orders, please.

Display:
Given that I'm in somewhat of a pinch income-wise, I would probably have to accept a kind offer to sleep on someone's sofa if I want to go to Paris for more than just a day trip (wink, wink).

Given the short notice to make eurostar reservations, for me to get to Paris on the 11/12 and meet redstar would cost me over 300 pounds, so I'll pass, unfortunately :-(

I can manage the day trip (in early and out late on the 4th of May) for 124 pounds.

Given who is "certain" to attend, maybe LEP and Geezer could propose a plan?

Or are we having lunch at the brasserie under Jérôme's flat, as usual?

Have you checked flights ?

Anyway, I'm happy to lead a short-ish pub crawl if there's any interest. However there's really not that much to gladden the tongue in Paris that won't be more cheaply and plentifully available in Brussels in June(yes I know Brussels is expensive).

So I'll do some research and see if I can find a couple of places that do a range of decent artisinale ales ie small French brewers (I know of one so far) to make a change from the more normal fare.

Dinner would be far more convenient than lunch for me (in fact lunch might not be possible at all), but as for hosting you, well yes that would be possible.

Well, technically I'll have to ask my wife but I pretty much know the answer.

Now, from your post I'm not sure whether you'd want that or would rather do a day trip, but at least you'd have the choice.

Are we speaking Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch?

Can we have some sort of decision on this? I'd like to reserve Eurostar tickets ASAP so they don't get too expensive, and that's a Bank Holiday weekend.

Cyrille said he probably can't make Sunday Lunch. Can he make Saturday Dinner?

Should the plan be Sunday Dinner and Monday Lunch?

Someone please make a decision on the "official" programme soon :-) There can always be side events organised after people say when they're going to arrive and depart Paris.

I can manage a day trip for 129 quid, 144 for Saturday to Sunday and 194 for Sunday to Monday. But the cheap Sunday morning tickets are nearly all sold out. Which is why.

I can be available anytime and I can easily find a place if we're not more than 30. I'm thinking of the place where we had last year's Friday meetup, Chez Pradel. The price was very reasonable for a presentable buffet, and the bill only adds up if we consume lot of wine, as we did last year.

Why don't you make the decision Miguel and I can make the arrangements when I get back on the 22nd. I can even call them from here if I can find the phone number.

Well, we are talking about the first weekend in May, aren't we?

If yes, then it's a 4 days weekend for most (Thursday being bank holiday, everyone will have Friday off).
And I haven't had holidays since the summer, except for a week at Christmas, and my wife has been talking about going somewhere for a weekend for quite a while now. Which is to say we may use the 4 days that way, and frankly I wouldn't veto that. So Saturday dinner would be the same problem as Sunday lunch. OK if we don't leave after all, not OK otherwise.

That said, even if we're away we can host someone so that could save a bit for you Migeru, and definetely we could be back for Sunday dinner, or Monday lunch if it's not too far from where I (and Jérôme) work.

Hope that helps.

I probably won't be able to join for the May meet-up - other matters call me in Grenoble - but I'm interested in lunch/dinner  for the 11/12 April. (ideally, lunch on the 11th)

As to others' locations, no idea. I can find my way wherever. Lunch on the 11th sounds OK to me. I'm liable to be at The Louvre on that day, so something in that area would probably work best for me. I'm hoping to hear from redstar in that regard, too.

my work leads me to some extremely fine hotels, but this is the finest, and the staff also are very good.

eeek, I'm having real problems booking even a plane (eurostar no chance). Fly in on Friday and fly out monday. Could be pretty damn expensive for hotels (unless the already heavily booked floors are available) and I really can't afford that.

But, if I come, anybody able to come out and play (food and drink) friday and saturday night ?

I had an unexpected expenditure this month which has used up money I had reserved for Paris.  Even if I only stay one night the eurostar alone is close to £200, which is fairly steep.

have you come across any bargains or good hotel deals?

No can do. Even a flight is coming in at £130 - £150 now and that's staying 3 nights, Fri - Sun.

I think I'm gonna have to back out cos, until I sell my flat, I haven't got much cash available and, given the short notice, this is an expenditure I simply can no longer afford.

I'll still be in Brussels but this is either/or.

however InWales says she wants to come, you wants to come. How about Saturday to Monday and drive down in my car ?

It's a 450 mile round trip, which is approx £80. the ferry return is approx £80.

Can I have a decision from both of you soon please ? I'll need to book the ferry asap.

InWales, when will you travel to Lodnon ? Friday night or Sat morning. Obviously the earlier you arrive, the earlier we can set off. although it's only 220 miles, crossing the channel takes a big bite out of timing and I'd like a lazy mid to late afternoon arrival in Paris so's I can get settled.

You'll arrive in Paddington.

If on Saturday, go to Miguel's in Leyton (details later) as I'll be picking him up there.
If on Friday you might as well come to my parents then we'll go to Mig's in the morning.

More or less the same timing.

I'd really like to be on a morning ferry if poss, but I guess if you come over on Saturday it's 3 hours from Cardiff before you hit the tube, so early afternoon will be the best we can do.

That'd put you at Migs just before 11:00.

Which'd mean a 2:00 sailing (assuming there is one) which'd mean 4:00 leave Calais. Arriving in Paris about 6:00. Yes, I appreciate these are worst case timings and the threat of engineering works is a real and serious threat over a bank holiday, but anything could wreck these and make them much worse whilst very little is likely to improve them.

Can you come Friday ?

Alternative is to stay with a friend/family member in London and leave for Leyton early morning from there.

If you're going to be there that weekend we might want to have a meeting on the side with Paul. Would Saturday or Monday be best for that? I'd basically plan to stay in Paris for one night.

Also, nothing may be planned for Saturday now, but even if the "central event" is on Sunday there will be people in Paris the day before and after and other outings and get-togethers do get organised for those who are around.

ETA in Paris is before 7:00. I think it would be unrealistic for anything to happen much before 9:00 due to getting organised. I'm likely to be in a hotel in the 13th and will have to crosstown. I believe Mig and InWales will be better placed so I may have to see you after you've started.

Migeru, InWales and I will arrive sometime around 7:00 Saturday evening. What with sorting ourselves out I doubt we'll be out to play in the centre of town (I think we're staying out near Clichy) much before 21:00.

No time on Monday I'm afraid, InWales has a long journey home so we'll start early.

The limiting factor seems to be the availability of parking. However, I suppose if reasonably-priced long-term parking is available in the vicinity, any hotel would do?
