about getting together april 7 for lunch in Madrid, we have talking it up in messages, why not see if anybody else is around on that date. Again that date if you are around Madrid.

Talking it to be at Real Cafe Bernabeu. Let me know how many so can make reservations. Cheers

Looking forward to seeing as many as possible from this group at MadridMan.

COOL!! Looking forward to it. Thanks, pedmar, for making the reservations for us! See you all on April 7th! I wonder if we should make a meeting point outside of the stadium and walk in together. I'm not even sure where the restaurant entrance is on the street. Maybe we should meet at the door or some other location near the stadium at, say, 1:15pm.

Saludos, MadridMan

I thought that some of us were doing the stadium tour first. Is that correct? I want to do it, anyway, so should I plan to do it before or after lunch?

So what time does the stadium tour start? Or should we just all show up at noon and hope it's over by the time we have our 1:30pm restaurant reservations? Maybe lunch AFTER the tour would be smarter - so we're not so tired/buzzed.

Saludos, MadridMan

its a good idea to have the tour after lunch, most people like to go in the morning, if you buy your the tour specify its for the afternoon at the Puerta.

my flight is ready ,will be there at Barajas by 12h40 and plenty of time to be at the Real Cafe by 13h30 or 1:30 PM
Cheers
A+

The tour BEFORE lunch is the way to go. We don't want to rush through lunch to take the tour. Besides, after lunch we'll be (likely) sleepy after the wine and won't be paying as much attention. It seems pedmar will have to take the tour after lunch due to the flight schedule and we'll take the earlier tour. Everyone agreed? Seems the majority prefers the pre-lunch tour and I concur.

Saludos, MadridMan

1:30pm Wednesday, April 7 looks good to me for lunch.

Let's meet at 11:30am at door 47 on Calle Concha Espina and Castellana - to get the Real Madrid tour tickets, according to pedmar. That's at the southwest corner of the stadium. Sound good to everyone?

The above is more of a concrete location because there are three BERNABEU metro exits/entries.

Not sure how long the tour will take. Maybe it's only an hour. Anyone know? If shorter, we could meet later, but unless someone speaks up we'll meet at 11:30 on Wednesday.

Saludos, MadridMan

I'm now looking at Google Maps Street View and door 47 IS NOT on-or even near- the corner of Concha Espina and Castellana. I can't find it, in fact, but it's not there.

the tour is off your own steam no guides, so you can take as long or short time as you wish
the first part is up the escalator to the top of the ground and that view is spectacular
i dont know the name of the street but the entrance is the end you would drive up to nearest to Madrid centre, you will find it easy enough with all the people milling around

yes you go into a replica dressing rooms, they have an unwritten code as "what goes on in the dressing room stays in the dressing room" policy, ill bet the dressing rooms would have some stories to tell these past 100yrs or so

No jazz is reality, see it to believe it. Let me tell you the history, 50 years ago the clasico was similar to this year,the only one. Then Barsa won the LIga, but Real Madrid won the Champions, this time we will win the Liga and Barsa???who knows if they win the Champions.
watching Telemadrid Tv now, wonderful ambiance.
