BCN Do Sat 18th March 2017

Hi everyone!

Spurred on by the support from chris1979, a date has been decided on a Do in Barcelona! I am still in the early stages of planning- will probably be more of a drinks thing then leaving people to do their own thing for dinner (BCN is not an easy place to organise group meals as the vast majority of typically Spanish/Catalan restaurants in the city are typically tiny- but I'll still keep researching for some potential places.

We have decided on the date of Saturday 18th March, the time and venue are still TBA. There is no Do hotel as such as of yet, and there are so many accommodation options in the city. I live in Barcelona so if anyone has any accommodation or general queries about the city/transport links, please do not hesitate to PM me! This also gives everyone a great chance to try out the new LGW lounge, the BA2706/08 LGW-BCN is typically cheaper than the Heathrow equivalents both in ET and CE.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Not sure if I can make it, but if you want a suggestion La Flauta is one of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona - and they do group bookings

There are two of them:

Does Barcelona have golf carts? I've always wanted to try one but never had the opportunity.

Sadly I will be heading off on a quick trip to SYD when this Do is on. A pity, Barcelona is one of The Lady Tobias' favourite cities.

Would have been fun, but returning from MIA that day.

Have fun! BCN is just the town for that.
