Latest update : No major changes --Pcoval (talk) 15:14, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Where and When?

The place is confirmed but we plan to go to the same one as in 2015

The meeting point is starting at 19:30 at "Le P'tit Belge" restaurant at rue de la paix

(Warning some map system there are other "Petit belge" places)

We can meet at FOSDEM's main entrace at 18h30 (inside between the doors and the books shop) and then at 18h45 leave by Bus 71.

To: 7 rue de la paix (Vredestraat) 1050 Brussels Belgium

From ULB take bus 71 , stop at "Saint Boniface" station , then walk 600m to the "7 rue de la paix" .


Notes and up date news

Let me suggest to take cash with you, because I noticed that lot of Belgium restaurants refuse to accept separates card payments (I suspect they want to avoid extra commissions from foreign cards ?)

Note the place can only host 70 persons and 30 are reserved so far, so if everyone can not fit in, community will have to divide into other smaller self managed groups. After all this is up to community to decide :-)
