Spanish Conversation/Chinese­ Dinner

[Important: Please only sign up if you intend to come.]

We shall speak Spanish and dine on Chinese food. Chen's Garden is not a fancy place but the food is good and inexpensive, the place is quiet, the parking is easy, and the restaurant is located within walking distance of the Ashby Station for those of you who use BART.

Please come on time since we shall order food soon after 7:00 pm.

    Thank you, Stuart and other hosts for creating another table. I will only listen for a while as my Spanish went rutting mode.

    Un deseo y un pedido. A wish and a plea.

    Deseo que alguien que nunca ha asistido o alguien que ha asistido y no ha dicho mucho, vaya a sentirse cómod@ en contribuir a la conversación durante la cena.

    Les pido a las personas que han hablado muchísimo que hablen menos, por favor.

    I hope that someone who is new to the Meetup or someone who has come before and not said much, will feel comfortable in contributing to the dinnertime conversation.

    A request to any individual who has talked a huge amount --- please talk less.

    Respectfully submissive,
    Rick

      everyone has a right to express their feelings and opinions. the one time I was able to participate in the Thursday Spanish language group was when the one time a second table was opened up at Chan's restaurant. And the conversation was wonderful. however I have not been able to get back to this meetup because by the time I get the announcement the reservations are closed and there is a wait list. Everyone should consider this a compliment to the value of this group. But I will look for another Thursday evening conversational meet ipup.that there is

    I think it is called "East Bay Beginning Spanish Speakers". The group had its first meeting last Thursday.

    There is another group just started, and it is for the beginners (which might be for me), met their first meeting last Thursday. I could not go as the workers for in my house were still active at the time, so I was dropped. You might like to check the group. I am planning to go to Oxaca next summer. If anyone has some information about the place, I would be exceedingly grateful.

    Yes, I agree it appears to be a group that has a secret way of signing up. I managed to go once, and it is a quiet and ideal place for a small group to converse ; but It appears as a closed club rather than a Meet-up.
    The co- ordinater seems to be a lovely person, so maybe the problem is a computer glitch.

      a solution might be to set up a second spanish-language dinner Meetup add another nice location.

    is there any way to get off of the notification for this particular Thursday night Spanish language meet up at Chen's? Appears to be a closed group. thank you!

    i have had the same experience with this group. there is a method for reserving in advance. e mail to stuart and find the protocol. i agree with you--why is this protocol made available to only some people . gabi
