New location is in the garden of the family house.
It is much nicer, quieter & more relaxed to enjoy a meal, rather than in the hot box under the metal awning at the old shophouse location.
Great. and if I recall it's just down one of the side streets

GTR will fill the venue on the night & the limit is 25 people.
If you want to join in, please confirm your attendance asap, for Mim & her Mum to be well prepared.
They have only just reopened since the passing of Jib, & are nervous about coping with big groups arriving unannounced - it doesn't work out well. So please confirm asap if you want to join in.
The cost is 250 baht a head for a set meal, as provided by Bamboo Mexican.

Just a note, that as the Ck Music Festival for 24th April is postponed until 21st August, the GTR Dinner is still on as a regular end of the month event.
We could seek a new destination but in view of the covid-19 issue may not be so welcome elsewhere.
At this stage Bamboo Mexican is ok & Mim would prefer about 15 people only.
They need reconfirmation 5 days before hand - 18 April - to buy supplies for the dinner.
So if you still want to come please re-confirm asap.

Apologies the village Phu Yai Ban does not approve of a big group of outsiders coming for the GTR Dinner now.
He will advise again on 23, which is a bit late.

Its very hard to plan anything in advance atm, because the situation changes so quick, the timing of this covid outbreak could not of come at a worse time with all the holidays and people travelling out of their provinces, the rules are changing daily from province to province.

Yep. I think we quickly become 'Outsiders' here. There will be a fair bit of 'Covid Hysteria' around . Hopefully it's only for a few weeks not months
