The Bitola Crew

The First Official Dinner

From Valentia:
The first Official dinner will take place in Bitola on the first day of the Meet.
For this special evening I have choosen Restaurant "Grne on Shirko Sokak"
This is one of the best National Restaurants in Macedonia.
It is situated in the Old Russian consulate (now restored & protected building) on the main MAGNOLIJA Square in Bitola right next to the Clock Tower.

The Dinner will start at 20.30.

The dinner menu is Hot Buffet with Macedonina National dishes, salads & desert.
We would have around 20 dishes to choose from.

Service will be partly done by waiters (drink orders) and the rest is for you to choose what you like to eat.
Followed by coffe/tea and desert.
Also in the price is included unlimited amount of beer, wine,rakija,mineral water & soft drinks.

The price is 17 Euros per person.

There will be variety of dishes for vegetarians & non vegetarian members, also I have taken into consideration the needs of allergy sufferers.
But please once you signed in, let me know if you have any allergies so I can put your name on the special list.

See you all in "Grene" for good food, drink and excellent company
