Hello, and thank you all loads for joining this new MeetUp group. I think it should be a lot of fun so I'm delighted to have so many interesting members already. Please mention this event to friends or colleagues who you think would benefit from this get-together.
I've fixed a venue for our first Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:http://www.meetup.com/English-teachers-in-Paris/calendar/9701771/
I've decided on a place near Chatelet (ie dead central) but not in the touristy bit. It's good value and friendly.
When: February 26,[masked]:00 PM
Where: La Com?die
11 rue de Reynie 75004
La Com?die is between the Pompidou centre and Boulevard Sebastopol, on the corner of rue Reynie and rue Quincampoix. The nearest metro is Chatelet (exit Boulevard Sebastopol), the nearest RER is Chatelet-Les Halles. Velib station 4020 is just next door. Almost every bus in the Northern Hemisphere goes there. I have reserved the upstairs room. The prices are very reasonable: 4 Euro for a pint of Stella or a cocktail before 10pm, 17 Euro or thereabouts for a decent bottle of wine. You can eat for about 9 Euro, but it's not compulsory as it's a bar rather than a restaurant.
If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Maybe" as well as "Yes".)
