About 10kms out of town on the Hang Dong road.

Yes, I would be interested in setting up a meeting point, probably best in town to make things easier.

Suggestions??

Now and then. Not often, and not regular.

Definitely not at night.

Not in a bar

There is a good restaurant called Mango Tree I would be happy to meet in.

Mango Tree's a fine place to meet.

Suggestions on time, frequency etc.

Personally I would prefer an early evening get together. Drinks after work sort of thing.

Sounds cool.. Let's make the frequency something really difficult to remember and then get real anal with people who show up at the wrong time. Like every first and third Friday of the month that falls on an even-numbered date. :o

(Along the lines of some Bangkok traffic signs I saw.. like: "No left turn on red for trucks with more than 6 wheels between 4 and 8pm on odd-numbered days with the exception of weekends and official holidays, for the left most lane only." By the time you've read all that you've either made the turn and are at the next traffic jam, or are looking int the face of a stern looking police man with his notebook in hand. ;-)

Seriously.. Mango Tree is central and easy to get to. Only drawback is how it would look for our respective significant others to have it in that location. Let's not worry about recurrence, but rather set a date for a meeting and then see if it develops in something weekly, or monthly, or even less. It would make it easier if it was in a place where there's other things to do in case attendance is low, or late. (Like more of a bar setting I suppose, but then not a drunk-farang-bum kind of bar.)

Something like Kafe Restaurant. (Moon Muang before you get to Ratwithee road, opposite that Rydges monstrosity). That's actually in interesting place because it does proper (non Westernized) Thai food as well as fair Western food. You don't get that so often. (Even does good Northern style food, check the little whiteboard menu) plus it's ecactly half way between restaurant and bar, AND it has cheap draft beer as well. It's popular with both Thais as well as tourists as well as residents.

I'd consider the Irish Pub as well if they'd just change the tablecloths more often than twice annually or something. ;-)

As for time, just after work would be excellent, like 6-7pm or so.

Cheers,

Chanchao

Ok, I'm not getting into any class issues, but lets make it Mango Tree at least for the first meet. :o

(Given your average Chiang Mai Farang you should know pretty much what class cross-section to expect. At least we have a good chance of being classier than a Pattaya based crowd..? :-)

Friday? This coming Friday even?

Cheers,

Chanchao

OK, let's break my duck with my first post.

I can arrange things at Mango Tree if you decide to meet there. (Know the owner's wife!)

Should be able to sort out discounts for Thai Visa members too, if you are interested & we can find some way to certify membership.

just join all of us candyflyp, everyone is more than welcome :D

and a lady inside this tough man's world will soften the mood :o

I just thought when I put that on, that the idea of meeting could be nice :D

we are not living in BKK and no one has such a long way to come inside town, so it's fairly easy to arrange something, and no one has a long way back home ...

mango-tree as norman d'plume said could be a good start, but we could also move from place to place, just not to take habits like (sorry) "old folks" from Lions club ... :D

mainly this could be a monthly meeting, just to talk together, exchange a few ideas,see how we live the past months events, information, nice movies we saw recently, well chating... and why not some help, so often we find solution in a few minutes of talking.

we did not see yet where are we living ...

one on Hang dong road, one in town, and then ? come on, tell us :D
