8pm dinner at La Maison des Mouettes Michelin-starred restaurant in Aytré. chef: Johan Leclerre
details tba


sunday april 21th 2013


discover the secrets of cognac - we'll visit a distillery and have a very private visit ...



the group size is limited to 24 people

registration for La Rochelle will open in summer 2012.

Mission control: wherever you want


please read the following for the signup procedure:

To make things easier for everyone (me included), there will be "day packages", and all the FlyerTalk DO activities for the day are bundled into the cost of that day's package.

As we already did for Reims, St. Malo, the Saturday package is REQUIRED, the Sunday tour to the distillery is OPTIONAL (extra fee for bus charter)

Here's a brief summary of the packages and the anticipated costs.

SATURDAY (REQUIRED, 190€* per person - includes not only dinner on saturday but as well entrance and other fees & the bus charter.)

ALSO IMPORTANT:
- You cannot "break up" the saturday day package - you pay for the whole day, and you get to join in the fun. Of course you can drop out of events during that day, but "partial refunds" cannot be made.
- You have to prepay for Saturday (190€ per person) when you sign up.
- If you sign up for and then cancel ANY of the day packages, YOU have to find someone to take your place, and when that person pays via the above website or any other way, you will get a refund minus paypal/currency exchange and eventbrite fees - if there are any. If you do not find someone to take your place, your payments will be forfeited.

There are 24 places available. This size will be manageable for our restaurant to handle.

I promise that I will do my best to make this event as good as Strasbourg, Lyon, Toulouse, Reims and Saint Malo. I hope you will join me and the rest of the FlyerTalk Tour de France participants.

at anytime - feel free to send me a pm or an email if you have any questions - looking forward to meet you again

sometimes ... somewhere... hopefully at La Rochelle in 2013

Chris

chrissxb picked an excellent weekend! The following weekend my mother is celebrating a big birthday and Mrs. cfischer and I will be on a Europe trip anyway. Great to know in advance, this will allow me to book a nice multi-city C-class award ticket in late May

this is just an estimation. Better announce a little more and be safe than claim more money later I have no data for next year yet. but the restaurant I have in mind for next year is a blast!

Your restaurant choices are always fantastic. Never had such good dinners as with you in the Alsace. ^
