As for organising a drink/meet I think I will follow up the suggestions from Alan and if I find a good bar on the Thursday, I,ll put something here or on Twitter. That leaves people free to come along or not depending on their plans.
Hi Clinton. Sorry, why did I call you Carlos?? ……. (It was a long Saturday ;-)
I arrive on the 20th from Heathrow. It’s been 30 years so most of my old haunts seems to have gone away thus I need to find a venue. As I say, I’ll post a suggestion for meeting up on the Friday evening around happy hour then folks can take a view
Else, a little off the main tourist spots is the River Valley district. Popular hangouts along Mohamed Sultan Road or Robertson Quay. Still pricey. There’s Wine Bar at Zouk – a popular club – (Jiak Kim Street) which have some cheap deals.
Finally another good district is Duxton Hill area (Nearest MRT at Tanjong Pagar)
Other options are further away from the main city area.
Let me know if you’re interested in those.
I’ve put those in the book. I arrive early on the Thursday and will take some time to check them out then post a suggestion here and on Twitter on Thursday evening for a possible meet up on the Friday. A bit last minute but…..
Depending on where you stay, i can suggest you possible spots to check out that is nearer and more convenient. When you’re here, feel free to drop @adaptalis on Twitter a message. I will try my best to assist you.
I won’t be able to join you for the meet up though, so enjoy your stay here!
