    Hi all
    me and 3 more guys planned a trip to Prague for obvious reasons: Czech Republic and the czech people are seen in Portugal as a really beautiful country and really nice people.

    We arrive at 28 July 2005, and leave 4 August 2005 to meet new people, enjoy the city and what it has to offer. We're thinking of going (in the middle of our stay) one day to Viena also.
    So... anybody up for a glass of port?

    Hi Anna,

    Good to hear you will be back in Prague soon. It'll be nice to meet you too. If for some reason you can't make this get together, we can always set something else up.

    Hi, this sounds like fun! Any ideas on the place, date and time?

    Ahoj Dano!

    Well as I said, I'll be arriving late 26th July and staying for about a month, so really any time will be good for me :) I do have a HUGE confession to make though, I don't like beer :D My Czech friends always try to convert me and I do try, honestly, but I just don't like the taste :oops: The last time I was there, we had gone to a typical Czech pub called U Petnika in Dejvicka which also serves great food but i think it's very popular with the locals and booking might be imperative. Anyone else been there?

    Haven't been to U Petnika but it sounds good and is close to the Dejvická metro. We can make a reservation when we know the date and the number of people coming. Any date is fine with me and Jeff at the moment, so I guess it's up to you Portuguese and Lorenzo!

    Ani, no problem you don't like beer. Not everyone does. It took me a long time to get to like it and still I only drink certain kinds. Anyway, isn't port mentioned in the subject of this topic? ;) Hmm, I don't think they'll serve port at a typical Czech pub... :?

    Hey all!

    That sounds fun. The idea for the pub sounds good, since my "team" will mostly travel by metro:p
    Maybe 30 of July if that's ok with all of you.. I think it's quite flexible:)

    PS: I missed the point on the port... we're not looking for it in Prague, we're bringing our own, for the enjoyment of our meeting:p

    I see. Let's hope they let you open it in the pub.

    It sounds good to me too :)
    I would be glad to join you and I will try to be there.
    By the wat, if they don't let us open the bottle inside we'll then do it outside :) Or we could invite the waiter to join us in a glass of Porto and they may decide to start offering it in their bar as well... that could even kick off some imPORT/exPORT trade with the Czech Republic :)

    Dana Well-Known Member

    Ok, let's bring a bottle opener. ;) By the way, the Czech Republic - Portugal imPORT - exPORT is already going on. You can find a limited selection of port here relatively easily.
  15. Lorenzo

    Lorenzo Well-Known Member

    Alright then! Let's burst the bottle and make the selection boundless! :)

    oh and nice touch Lorenzo! ;)

    I think that settles up.
    The date could be 30 July and the place could be U petnika, maybe around 10pm?
    If it's ok, fine:) If not, say it or suggest another date.

    10 p.m.??? :shock: That's when some places close in this country. :D This pub U Pětníka closes at midnight and their kitchen is open until 10:00 - 10:30 p.m. after which time no food is served. If we all want to have dinner there - and Ani mentioned they serve great food - we could meet at 7 p.m., possibly 8 p.m. How would that work?

    Reservations are strongly recommended, so let's settle on a time and the number of people, so I can call and reserve a table.

    If I'm not wrong, the address of the pub is Lotyšská 8 (can anyone confirm?). From the map it looks like you take the metro (line A) to Dejvická, walk to Vítězné náměstí (the "round square" or circus as they say in England :)), walk up Jugoslávských partyzánů and turn right onto Lotyšská.

    I have been to this hospoda once and it’s right there where you say. It’s just a five minute walk from the Dejvicka metro station.
    I’m pretty flexible with time but if you people would like to have dinner there then it’s definitely better to follow your suggestion.
