All of us spent our Junior year abroad in Vienna in the late 60's, and I'm in charge of coordinating a small, informal gathering on a Friday in mid-October. This will be the night before a much larger, more formal event. I'm looking at either late Friday afternoon or early evening, and expect only around 15 or so people.
I've come up on my own with The Brauhaus and Resi's Bierstube as possibilities, but am open to other suggestions.
We'd like a place that's not crazy loud, as most of us haven't seen one another in 40 years and we'd like to be able to hear ourselves talk. An Old World atmosphere, along with German beer and food would be must haves.
We're all staying at hotels in the Loop or River North neighborhoods, so reasonable proximity to those area via cab would be preferred.
Danke schoen for any help or suggestions.
