Okay, I'll try to remember that so I don't end up eating alone at Maccy Ds.

It's rather late in the day but if there is still room I would love joining in (many thanks to Yahillwe for this splendid initiative); for me this lovely DO on Saturday, 1 October would be the perfect accompaniment to the Arc, which will be on the following day (Sunday, 2 October), thus making this one a week-end to remember...

As for travel info and preferences I am afraid I sadly cannot edit the Wiki (too much lurking and not enough posting here it would seem) so here goes (perhaps someone could kindly add it in):

Flights/Hotels: N/A since I actually live in Paris.
Breakfast: Yes, with pleasure.
Restaurant: Both options look great but being able to be booked seems to give the edge to Chez La Vieille "Adrienne" in my humble opinion.
Walking Tour: Yes, with pleasure.

Excellent, I'm sure Yahillwe will be along to say welcome as well and answer about the evening bookings (which I can't comment on) but it will be a pleasure to meet and share a lovely breakfast with you at the very least!

I'll add you to the wiki items and just add:

Anyone else interested in joining in at the last minute to this great DO? Open to all

Good afternoon all

Well, I've just booked my hotel - I am in the Crowne Plaza Paris-Republique.

I am arriving Friday evening - I land at 18:50 to give me a wee bit of time in Paris Friday night before the main proceedings on Saturday - now Yahillwe your suggestion of tapas is certainly of interest - though if haasha, KARFA and MattHandy are joining the proceedings it might be quite a late one due to their flight times. The other option I suppose is that we all sort ourselves out for dinner and meet up for a few drinks on the Friday later?

After breakfast on Saturday morning I am happy to go with the flow - the walking tour is of interest to me certainly, and I was hoping to pop up to Montmarte at some point during my trip, but I can do that alone. Drinks from 5pm sound good, and as for dinner; Chez La Vieille looks wonderful.

Well, 2 weeks to go. I am very much looking forward to another do and my first time in Paris.

Welcome and we are happy you will be joining us.

I wonder if you have posted your name to the wiki list.

I think we might be better at going to Chez La Vieille. Am hoping that they would be open by then, I was told that they would. Once am back in Paris I will contact them to confirm.

Just for the dinner... Otherwise you are most welcome to eat anywhere, or you could stand outside and watch us eat a wonderful meal and drink great wines.

Pm me if you need any info about Paris.. places/restos/ etc etc/

If you are interested in museums and exhibitions I highly recommend those sites:

https://www.expointhecity.com

http://www.pariszigzag.fr/#

Am sure you guys can figure out how to get them in English.

I'll be there for breakfast and the walking tour. Looking forward to it. Oh, and dinner. Chez La Vieille "Adrienne" is my preference.
