- Hostfree Event-

This event is host free. How does a host free event work? Pretty simple! Some attendees will help with getting good seats and being able to find eachother.

After arriving, just check your smartphone to see if someone left a comment about where the group is in Vapiano, and if no one left a comment.... Just grap a table and let the others know where you are at.... Using your smartphone :)

- What more needs to be said? -

Enjoy your Meetup :)

    Hello Arjan, I guess the folks who attended are still reeling under the hangover from good vibes that no one commented yet :-) Perhaps I recovered soon. To shoot it straight, it couldn't have been better what with the setting and having met people from diverse settings! An added hint to people who left early: The fun factor with discussions only got better as time went on, so tough luck to you folks ;-)

    Hi! So far there are three of us sitting opposite the 'salat & antipasti' counter behind the glass cabinet with plants.

    Hi all, this event will start in 20 minutes or so :). So let's have fun :)

    This, as usual, is how it goes down: try and be there as close to 8Pm as possible.... After arriving, read the comment line to see where the group is...

    If there is no comment, just find a nice spot inside the venue and let the others know where in Vapiano you are, and for example what your jersey/jumper/whatever looks like :)

    Keep on checking the smartphone ones in a while.... And have fun :)

    Not an organiser, but I am guessing you guys would probably benefit from planning to come about 15 minutes late and just asking around since you don't have a smartphone ;) Perhaps someone should tell the barman where to look for the group if there is a bar (if no volunteers, I'll happily do that!).

      Thanks for your feedback - I think this set-up is great and works well, so I think it should be fine. I hope we are all lively and welcoming enough that new people can see who we are immediately, even without a smartphone :) Thanks for getting back to everyone so promptly though - I think that helps a lot too!! :)

    Hi Both, The event is aimed on people who have a smartphone, but everyone is welcome :)

    Some people just "sence where the meetup group is at. Some people already know people.

    If one of you wants to host an event, or if anyone wants that, than just drop me an E Mail, than we can work out something that works for the ones without a smartphone too :)

      Alright, I'll try to "sense" my way then... it's weird though that the event is based on owning a smartphone. Looking forward to meeting new people though :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
