I will be arriving in Madrid in the early evening of May 3 (Friday). Anyone else going to be in Madrid that weekend? I also want to email Andre to see if he is running a Walks of Spain tour on May 4.
Cheers!

Don't forget to count me in! If it's not a Tues-Fri, I shouldn't have any excuses for not turning up. We'll talk again soon, and come up with a nice spot.

Sunday, Sunday...mmmm, probably later on for moi. I'm looking into the Real Madrid game that night or take in a bullfight (I believe they begin at 5:30??) just to experience one in my life. But, being on vacation, I'm flexible for any ideas. I will be available Saturday night also (travelling solo) if anybody's interested.

I hope to be there for that weekend looking good so far - how will we know who's who is there a MM badge/banner or something or do we all wear red t-shirts or bandanas??? I've never done this before!
I guess Americans do stand out, i'm sure i'll spot you guys lol. I'm joking of course.

I'll be arriving in Madrid the afternoon of the 3rd, and have decided to stay at the Hotel Madrid down off Sol. I'd love to get together with whomever should my schedule permit. I'm waiting to hear if I'll be joined by friends from Valladolid that evening or not... Please let me know where and when!!

Here's the lastest, I think!

Saturday the 4th or Sunday the 5th(May, that is!).
Those are the two days that seem possible for everyone. Chica has suggested a few places, but since I am not familiar with Madrid, any suggestions?

As the date gets closer, I will post my mobile so people can call to say they'll be there laugh laugh , or to cancel frown

Wyndyl wink

El Brillante has that BIG terraza outside with lots of tables/chairs and a beautiful nighttime view of illuminated Ministerio de Agricultura building and the Atocha Train Station! (inside El Brillante there's no seating)

How does La Taparia de la Abuela sound to everyone? Has anyone been there? I believe it is on C/ Segovia and the address is C/ Conde, 4.

Otherwise, I need a suggestion for a place to meet around the Huertas area and pronto!

Fantastic Wyndyl! I will be there, a bit jetlagged, but ready for my first real Madrid night out. BTW thanks for the email reply and I will contact you on your mobile sometime Saturday. I am staying at the Carlos V so will be close to the action.
Nine more days to go!

My husband and I are taking our first trip to Spain, and Saturday May 4 will be our last night there! We will return to Madrid from Seville on the AVE late that afternoon. We would like to try to join you, at least for a drink, if that's OK.

We're very easy to recognize, as soon as we open our mouths. Just listen for the Southern accent . . . wink

I wish I were posting to say "I can't wait to arrive in Madrid Friday and the BIG get together Saturday night" but, for the second year in a row, I regret that I've had to cancel my trip to Spain due to unforeseen circumstances here at home. Moving issues that involve big finances which dictate that it is best I don't take a big trip this spring. I don't think it's a good idea to be far from home with nagging issues on your mind (especially financial) as it's harder to chill and relax. C'est la vie, it could be worse. I am in a major depression now (I didn't sleep last night) but WILL get to Spain, probably next year. All of the planning and research, hotels booked two months ago...boom...all for nothing. Believe me, it is an incredibly empty feeling here and we're having one of the coldest springs on record (there is NO green anywhere here in Alberta) which doesn't help the cabin fever. Sorry to rant about this but, what can I say, this is a downer and I really wish I could join everybody Saturday night for my first Spanish experience. Thanks so much to everybody who helped me with my inquiries which I DO intend to use hopefully in a year. Wyndy, it sounds like you're having a great first few days please give us a full report somewhere down the line! A great website Madridman and keep up the fantastic work this is such a great source of information and some incredibly interesting people here.
Waht more to say...I am sooo disappointed but will get over it. I may be able to afford a quick jaunt to New Orleans for a long weekend, one of my favorite American cities.
Hasta la vista!
Dargus (I will be following this board)

Sigh.
Wish I was there last night as I look out the window and see snow AGAIN this morning. I've only just started to accept that I'm not in Spain and planning to got to Toledo tomorrow as was planned. Ouch! It's great to hear the get together was a blast. Until next time...

Yes Nativo, I agree. I on the contrary, felt really really "clumsy" whenever I spoke the other night, because I had just spent a whole week glued to my two and a half-year-old half British niece, speaking childish Spanglish, or just plain made up baby-talk.

Wendy,
I hope you've gotten my msg and we get to talk before you go. Have you been able to check out those famous 'jamas yet???

We had a great time meeting you guys! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer, and that we couldn't join you again later. (Our dinner ran late and we had to catch an early flight the next morning. frown ) Even in that short time, I think Ignacio convinced us that our next trip must be to the north of Spain. And you also AT LAST got my husband to try sangria (instead of his usual cerveza), even if it was on his last night in Spain!

Good job, wyndyl.

Well, I had a great time too, I think. It's all a bit blurred. Too much Mahou. Windy, get in touch if you're still around a want to go for a drink. I was quite hung over when you rang on Sunday, and didn't really sober up until about 9pm, thanks to a Bloody Mary. Hope to catch you before you run away. The rest of you should keep in touch too. See you all soon.
PS Jo Anne, I just got your email here at work, but can't seem to access my Terra account, so I'll be in touch when I get home.
