  • Thursday Netwalking to 3 Viewpoints

    Náměstí Míru

    Hello Discoverers, with great pleasure we fulfill the request of you Discoverers to organize a hiking activity during the week, which gives you the chance to meet like minded people. People you met on your last walk, people you never met before or you want to meet again. This regular weekday evening walk is intended to create a good connection between the members of the Discovering Prague community. At the beginning of each walk will be a gentle ice-breaking activity, guiding you through the routine “What’s your name/Where’re you from/What do you do” triad of questions and setting the tone for more meaningful conversations with your fellow Discoverers. Every Thursday evening we will meet at a metro station, walk and talk some 7-8 km through some green areas of Prague and finish for a drink or snack in a pub. DIFFICULTY: Easy HOW TO JOIN: Just sign up. And please be so kind to sign off again, if you cannot make it! We are looking forward to meeting you. And we all know, how deeply disappointing it is if your meeting partner does not appear. HIGHLIGHTS Views of Prague from Riegerovy sady, Vitkov, Metronom MEETING POINT: Namesti Míru (metro A), on the stairs to the church. Thomas [masked]

  • Tuesday Laser Game Evening

    Metro C "Nadrazi Holesovice" exit to Plynarni /bus ZOO

    Let´s meet in the arena… and have fun! Laser game evening. Hello everyone, I would like to invite you to join us for a battle with lasers on Tuesday, January 29th. I have booked 3 games at Mercuria Laser Game Praha, Argentinská 38, Praha 7, starting at 19:00. We will meet at 18:40 by the Relay Newsagent/Tobacco Shop in the entrance hall of the metro station Nádraží Holešovice in Plynární street (for bus departures direction ZOO, there's a tram stop, no. 1,6,12,25, as well). https://goo.gl/maps/h9uZoo8HjNB2 Don't be late, we're going to leave the meeting place at 18:45 sharp (!), to have enough time to get changed and prepare for the game. Alternatively, you can meet the group in the arena - it is only about 200m far from the meeting place. Each game lasts 12 minutes and consists of a scenario, usually team based or free for all, where we run around and fire laser bolts at each other. At the end you get to see the statistics of how well you did. Each game costs 99 or 129 CZK per person. (Depends on the number of players). Credit cards are accepted. We will have the whole room for ourselves. I recommend to take a spare t-shirt with you as you will be running around a quite bit. It is recommended to wear dark clothes, not to be an easy target :-) Afterwards, there's a nice cafe/restaurant nearby we can visit and have a diner and drink. Take cash with you, as they don´t accept credit cards. http://www.crossclub.cz/en/contact/ Here's the arena's website so you can check out the playing field and some videos: http://mercurialaser.cz/en/ Maximum number of players is 22. Everyone will pay separately for the game. See you... shoot you :-) soon! David [masked]
