I think I might be able to join you folks on the 16th! maybe around
19:00 or so (I might be able to leave work earlier and reach a meeting
place at 18:00 but I usually have difficulty leaving :P )

MaBrasserie is a good choice, but a bit "far away from metro stations".

reach the place (there's two stations some two or three blocks away from

otherwise, Vices & Versa is also nice, Dieu du ciel has great beer but
is usually crowded (maybe on a monday it would be ok). Le cheval blanc

if some folks are not too much into beer, there's other places we could
meet. We can go to a park, but it'll be dark.

We can also have dinner somewhere. istr that one of you folks have a
vegan diet, so trying to come up with options that keep this door open:
* Aux Vivres servers vegan salads and sandwitches/wraps.
* Café Santropol has some pretty great homemade sandwitches with huge
bread and really tasty stuff inside (they also have vegan sandwitches.
* L'escalier is a vegan pub that might combine food and drinks, and it's
very close to the venue.
