Madrid: possible get together? - 03/02/09 08:17 AM

Just wondering if we can plan another get together while I am in Madrid this month visiting my daughter? MadridMan, if you think it can work out, I am available Tuesday, March 17 (St. Patrick's day?) or Wed. March 18th evenings OR for lunch either of those days. I know this is short notice, but just in case...it would be fun!

We could try an evening get together but we shouldn't expect too many people on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening - and probably fewer for a lunchtime gathering.

I hope to be traveling for part of this month so I can't guarantee I'll be able to attend - but will try!!

It'd be great to see you again!!

Saludos, MadridMan

I understand! It is very last minute and I know that mid-week is tough. I hope to be back in the late summer, so hopefully we can plan something then!

I, for one, would LOVE to get together with you, esperanza. Maybe a few others of us would like to join for a mini-get-together. Would that be okay?

Saludos, MadridMan

MadridMan, I would also love to get together. So, if you don't end up going away that week, let's plan. Tuesday or Wednesday for lunch would be great.

Hi!
I probably will join you. I haven't decided yet if I will go to Valencia for the Fallas festival (from 15th to 19th).
Saludos

Fantastic! I am free Wed. for lunch if that works for everyone. If you guys go away for the holiday, I understand. Just let me know where and when and I will try to be there.
I am leaving for Madrid in a few hours! YEAH!!

Looks like I'll be around. Nothing like waiting 'til the last minute TO THINK about making travel plans. ARGH! I've been too involved with work lately. So good for us! Let's get together!

Saludos, MadridMan

Thanks for the re-cap. I love to live in Spain vicariously through all of you!

As Sparkalina said, thanks to MM and Steve for the update! It sounds like a lovely time. I've never had (at least to my knowledge) calamares a la romana so I may have to try that the next time I'm in Spain.

I have very fond memories of last summer's outing at Plaza de San Andres; in fact, yesterday I was cleaning and I found the cork from one of the many bottles of Rueda we drank there! smile

I am thinking of you, Steve! Good luck with the classes today!

It was a fun Saturday evening! I am so glad to have found Cardamomo. What a great place. The guys at the door were annoying, but the flamenco was great.

I am back in NY with lots of great memories of the 9 days in Spain. Although it was short, it was intense. I am glad to have discovered a few new places and to have returned to some of my favorite spots too.

Thanks for meeting me for lunch, and for a great night on Saturday. You guys are the best!
