Social Event – June 17th (evening)

The dinner will be held in a restaurant located in the main downtown square, near the Tagus river, Praça do Comércio, also well know as Terreiro do Paço, since this was and still is the main civic and political centre. After a period of limited access to the public, the square became a lively and «must to be» place. The dinner will consist of a menu of modern Portuguese cuisine, with a cost of max. 30 € per person. An alternative menu will be provided for those who request it.

In order to organise these two events, please confirm your participation not later than tomorrow, 13 June 2014, replying to me and to our Portuguese colleague Nuno Simões (
